Abstract [sv]

Technology moves forward and new devices are always created, with

smartphones and tablets right now revolutionising the gaming industry. They

have given us a new take on multiplayer gaming. This report is going to try to

give answers to the following questions:

What are the technological constraints multiplayer game development

faces on smartphones and tablets?

How much do people play multiplayer games on smartphones and tablets

and how much are they willing to pay for their gaming experience on

these platforms?

What are the development costs for multiplayer games on smartphones

and tablets?

But most importantly, how will the different devices where you can play

multiplayer games, such as video game consoles, PC and hand-held video

game consoles affect each others market shares?

Right now smartphones and tablets coexist with other systems, since they offer

a different kind of experience than other platforms. This is both due to

Technology moves forward and new devices are always created, with

smartphones and tablets right now revolutionising the gaming industry. They

have given us a new take on multiplayer gaming. This report is going to try to

give answers to the following questions:

But most importantly, how will the different devices where you can play

multiplayer games, such as video game consoles, PC and hand-held video

game consoles affect each others market shares?

Right now smartphones and tablets coexist with other systems, since they offer

a different kind of experience than other platforms. This is both due to

technological constraints as well as the way people generally play on touch

devices. People do not usually play their games for hours on touch-based

devices, which is more common on other kinds of systems.

With technological advancements, smartphones and tablets might become

serious competitors to gaming consoles.

 

Abstract [sv]

Tekniken gör hela tiden framsteg och nya enheter skapas hela tiden.

Smartphones och tablets revolutionerar just nu spelindustrin och har gett oss

ett helt nytt sätt att spela på. Vad denna rapport ska ge svar på är dessa följande

frågor:

Vad är de teknologiska begränsningarna multiplayer-spelutveckling på

smartphones och tablets ställs inför?

Hur mycket spelar folk multiplayerspel på smartphones och tablets och

hur mycket är de villiga att betala för sin spelupplevelse på dessa

plattformar.

Vad är utvecklingskostnaden för multiplayerspel på smartphones och

tablets?

Fast framförallt, hur kommer de olika enheter där man kan spela

multiplayerspel, såsom TV-spels konsoler, PC och bärbara spelenheter

att påverka varandras marknadsandelar?

Just nu kan smartphones och tablets leva sida vid sida med andra enheter,

eftersom de erbjuder ett annat sätt att spela på än andra system. Det beror både

på teknologiska begänsningar och sättet folk spelar spel på smartphones och

tablets. Man spelar oftast inte i timtal på touch-baserade enheter, vilket är

vanligare på andra enheter där man kan spela multiplayerspel.

Med teknologiska framsteg kan dock smartphones och tablets komma att bli

farliga konkurrenter till spelkonsoler
