Video display devices such a TV screen, virtual reality headset or computer monitor. Video games have become an increasingly important part of people’s life.
Platforms are the electronic systems which is used to play video games. Video games are developed for one or several platforms. To play this requires dedicated devices such as video game consoles etc.
There are many input devices which are used for games like the game controller which varies across platforms. Common controllers like gamepads,joystics,mouse keyboard and touchscreens etc. now the person body as well by using a Kinect sensor. Players can view the game on display devices like television and computer or in virtual reality head mounted display goggles. There are game sound effects which come from loudspeakers or headphone.

Video games is the billion-dollar industry which has grown from pixels to almost photo-realistic graphics. Video games has spread from arcade machines to personal computers, consoles, mobile devices.
Video games technology will only continue to evolve and develop throughout the year 2020 and into the future.
Here are some gaming technology predictions for 2020.
Hyper-immersive gameplay through virtual reality (VR)
Virtual reality graphics are typically still very cartoonish and Virtual reality level of immersion can be clunky. Photorealistic graphics have been achieved with PC games, and console games but virtual reality has yet to catch up. Future gaming technology can have virtual reality headsets which will be able to render 3D graphics and that are almost indistinguishable from real-life.
This prediction builds because of the increased usage of cloud computing technology as internet connections become faster and more reliable. With future technology gamers will be able to play a game from any device with an internet connection. It have the same experience like you are streaming music and video. This future gaming technology will also minimize the game updates because the updated game can be easily accessed through the internet, and it will also make video games cheaper and more accessible to people.
Handheld consoles trend seems to finish in 2000 because of immobile video game consoles such as the Xbox and PlayStation. But the success of the Nintendo Switch told us that there is still very much an audience is dedicated to video games, rather than playing on a smartphone or tablet. Handheld future game consoles can be an important part of gaming technology and would likely to appeal to both nostalgic older gamers and gamers.
Social or collaborative virtual reality (VR)
Virtual reality technology has isolates gamers from other people. But with future gaming technology game developers are thinking to connect players with each other in a virtual space rather than playing alone. There are some games already in the market which converts it into reality such as VRChat. Virtual reality future could have space for social interaction rather than isolation.
Increasing use of augmented reality
Like virtual reality (VR), augmented reality yet to be fully utilized in connection with video games. The success of Pokémon Go gave us a hint of the potential that what this future video game technology can do. Augmented reality can be used with gaming apps through smartphones or it may also be used with virtual reality/augmented reality headsets and future game consoles. This technology can also be used through a wearable device such as a smartwatch or Google Glass.
There are some games listed below which are predicted to be launch in 2020.
