With the dust settled from another E3 showcase, gamers have some exciting game announcements to pine after as we head into the 2014 holiday season and beyond. Sony and Microsoft are both focused heavily on their newest, eighth-generation home consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, respectively), while Nintendo continues to try to shake up these heavyweights with new releases for the Wii U.
CEA recently released the report, The Future of Gaming, which took a deep look into how gaming platforms are faring in the marketplace, considering the growing competition from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The study found that home console and mobile gamers have completely different needs when it comes to which devices they use and the types of games that they play.
