The Ultrabook and the Casual Gamer
There are basically three types of gamers in this world: Console Gamers, who play video games using a game unit like a Nintendo Wii, XBox 360 or Playstation 3, Extreme Gamers who play games on high-performance desktop PCs, and the Casual Gamer, who plays games on laptops or on a sleek and responsive device like an UltrabookTM, or on their smartphone or tablet.
Are you a casual gamer? You might be and not even know it.
Casual games are exactly what they sound like; video games that are more casual. Casual games are distinguished by their simple rules, easy controls and lack of commitment required in most console games. For the most part, casual games are played online through a web browser, but it’s becoming more popular to play them directly on consoles or mobile phones.
Each month, an estimated 200 million users play casual games online, most of them don’t even think of themselves as gamers, or even like video games. According to AppUp℠, Intel’s apps center, the top 5 purchased casual gamer’s games are:
