Game Streaming With the Xbox Scorpio
A computer game is a video game console that usually involves interaction with a user interface (or input device) through a keyboard, mouse, joystick, gamepad, or infrared motion sensor. The term “video game” is often used in association with video games, a sub-genre of computer games, which can include computer and console games, card games, and virtual games. A number of other related terms and concepts also exist. These are also called “gadgets,” “tools,” or “environments.”
Gaming uses physical activities (such as walking or running) or non-physical activities (such as sitting) to perform. In so doing, it combines the two basic approaches to education: teaching and learning. It differs from curriculum-based education in that it places greater emphasis on problem solving and the evaluation of skills in a real setting. Also, unlike most education programs, gaming does not use textbooks, teachers, notes, and other instructor-directed materials. It uses signals acquired through experience-based, active engagement with a computer-based system.
Gaming takes various forms. Console-based games are usually for the console itself, but there are many open-source and free open-boxed games available for the PC and other consoles. Card-based or on-body sensors are hand-held devices that gather physical activities from the environment, such as body heat, muscle motion, or other signs acquired through physical activity. Non-traditional sources of signals acquired through physical actions, including GPS (Global Positioning System), touch screens, and infrared light can also be used. Some forms of physical activity may include playing sports like basketball or table tennis.
Many forms of non-traditional, hybrid gaming are emerging. Examples include augmented reality, cloud computing, and deep learning. Augmented reality refers to using digital information from the Internet and other sources to build experiences in reality, such as virtual shopping malls or game venues; deep learning refers to using data and models of people and their brainwaves to create artificial intelligence that learns through real-life experience and adapts accordingly. Cloud computing is using large numbers of servers to process data from multiple sources, such as massive data centers; and deep learning refers to using large networks of computers to process artificial intelligence through custom software.
Video gaming has evolved into many forms. It is used on many different platforms, including smartphones, handheld devices, tablets, televisions, embedded systems, and others. Most of these platforms share a common platform used to render the player’s experience: a high resolution, smooth, and clear display with good contrast and color. The display output is typically not dependent on the game being played, but it is typically based on the device being used.
Gaming is a multi-billion dollar industry. Millions of people from all over the world spend thousands of dollars every year on gaming. The gaming industry recognizes the need for a dependable, scalable, and affordable gaming platform to meet all the needs of gamers everywhere. Project Scorpio will be available for Xbox Scorpio owners in early 2021. Stay tuned for more details regarding this new gaming technology from Microsoft.
