Welcome to Cyankee.com my friend!
Cyankee.com is a blog about gaming gear such as video game chairs and accessories made by the most famous gaming industry brands. There are so many products and things being produced so it is really hard to pick out the best. I am exposed to a bunch of products constantly so I want to try to bring forth the greatest ideas and products so there is no more confusion and misconceptions. So I like to answer those questions I personally come across and I am here to provide everything a hardcore gamer wants and needs.
Video game industry is estimated at $91.5 billion in 2015 and future looks bright as well projecting worldwide revenues to reach $107 billion in 2017. Companies like Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Steam by Valve Corporation, Sony, Microsoft, Razer make the most out of it. In recent years industry is booming and now we are witnessing game streaming, e-sports, never before seen gaming gear, virtual reality and other trends that take over the world. Gaming conventions such as Gamescom in Germany and E3 in Los Angeles are important showcase of gaming industry that every gaming enthusiast should attend.
Gaming industry in no longer just about making cool games. The scene has twisted in past 10 years dramatically. Now it’s a lifestyle, e-sports, gadgets and even its own fantasy world events. Gaming is highly involved with tech industries, PC hardware and social media. Names like Nvidia and EA Sports are well known to the point where you can hardly find a person who has never heard of them. With the haste of evolution right now it is almost impossible to predict what will the gaming be like in next decade. VR is making a huge leap at the moment and most of the biggest companies are investing massive resources into VR platform. That will open up new market related to VR environment thus growing its net worth almost exponentially.
Video Game Streaming
Platforms that allow players to broadcast their game play and viewers to chat in real-time are serious participants in gaming industry. Twitch, YouTube and even recent start-up Beam are gaining visitors exponentially. Video game streaming has blown up massively in past years and it is a win-win situation for everyone. Game developers and companies get the social exposure while viewers get to watch games in action thus providing the advertisement for the industry and informative yet entertaining experience for gamers. Streaming also for young people to gain experience in social business and possibly earn their first shit load of money. That said getting into gaming industry has never been easier than it is today. Twitch stands as the biggest platform with more than 1.5 million streamers and 100 million visitors per month and most successful streamers making up to 10 000$ a month. Streaming trends also provide a great insight into gaming trends and overall gaming scene, so devs can research new ideas and potential possibilities of their products on the fly.
PC vs Console
Controversial and infuriating to some gamers is the PC vs Console wars if you will. While the gaming community stands united there are still lot of debate whether the quality of gaming and overall experience is better on one side or the other. Prime example can be the reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace, where dank memes and witty jokes are main subject for years and gamers find mass amount of entertainment bashing each other on this simple yet overwhelming matter. While consoles provide straight up game-play experience that can not be more straight forward and less of a nobrainer for ultimate gaming, PC enthusiasts can always feel overpowered by bragging about more superior graphics and never-ending expansiveness in gaming performance. Pick the side or join them both might be a good question to ask yourself when blending yourself into the gaming world.
