Report Summary:

As larger and better quality screens continue to provide a more superior media experience and the smartphone remains attached to the consumers’ hip 24/7/365, smartphones are being used to consume more media than ever before. As mobile gaming continues to increase in popularity, consumers are looking for better ways to interact with the game other than that of the touchscreen. While gaming applications on a smartphone can be fun and compelling at times, for example providing something to pass the time when waiting in a doctor’s office, they also have their limitations. The lack of tactile buttons, and the need to use the smartphone’s display as the gameplay screen and controller, restricts the smartphone gaming experience. For participants in this study, the idea of using a smartphone as the gameplay screen attached to a dedicated controller was slightly more appealing than using their smartphone as a virtual game controller.
