Console Gaming companies are still doing well in sales thanks to demand, but for how much longer will they be a viable sector of the growing video game industry? Some analysts predict that with online video games growing so rapidly, that the all in one console games could be on their way out. Not so fast say many manufacturers of console games, rather they believe they are evolving with these new venues. Console gaming plus, online interaction with online gaming communities is where it’s at says one executive from a popular console game manufacturing company.
Indeed, why can’t you have the best of both worlds? Sure the older console games end up in the free box at the garage sales or flea markets but not the new stuff, which has more interaction and the latest graphics and speed. Online gaming has some distinct advantages, in that it has increased inflows of venture capital, the latest talent and new advertising revenue streams of major brand names looking to make a connection with the primarily younger gaming demographic.
So the question on many minds of those who follow this sector seems to be; are all-in-one Console Games out and if so is this just the evolution of Gaming Technology, which is causing its extinction? “The older games are definitely out and have lost significant ground to the online gaming communities and the XBox,” stated a gentleman from the Online Think Tank recently. Interactive consoles that can hook up to online gaming communities and be used as self-contained gaming consoles will always be a favored method for the online gaming gamer.
Computer and console games are now big business. As the hardware has become more sophisticated, so gamers have come to expect more and more from their video games. If you want any proof just look at how the graphics compare on the latest Xbox 360 or PS3 games compared to say Pacman or Frogger – there’s really no comparison. The latest games all use video, high def surround sound and photo realistic graphics to make the gaming experience more like a major Hollywood blockbuster than a simple game. Unfortunately, all of this is not cheap to produce, and console games now cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce. The knock on effect of this is that the major games producers just cannot allow people to make copies of these games and pass them around their friends – they need to sell every copy they can in order to make profits and keep on producing the next line of blockbusters. That’s why, in recent years, copy protection measures on all of the major consoles have become so sophisticated that its virtually impossible to crack them.
However, notice that I did say virtually impossible. That’s because, thanks to some very clever software programming its now easy to backup console games – in fact it takes only 3 steps to make a copy of any game you want.
All you have to do to backup console games is get the original disc and place it into your PC DVD burner. Then get a copy of this game copying software, install and run it and follow the on-screen instructions. It takes a few minutes to transfer the entire content of the original game disc to your PC’s hard drive, software protection and encryption included. When this is done, remove the original game disc, and replace it with blank VD (or CD if its an older console like a PlayStation 1) Then, just click the big green button and wait while the games data is transferred from your hard drive onto the backup disc. After about 20-30 minutes you are done, and you have just successfully backed up your game for safekeeping.
It really cant get any simpler to backup console games thanks to this amazing new software. Make sure you get a copy now and protect the valuable investment that you have made in your console games collection.
