multiplayer gaming


Multiplayer gaming is any game which can be played by multiple players at the same time. The first multiplayer game was “Pong”, which was created in 1972. Since then the multiplayer gaming has been in full force with almost all games catering for multiplayer gaming.
In the past multiplayer gaming represented one player playing with another player on the same console. With the evolution of broadband internet, multiplayer gaming has seen a re-birth as “online gaming” was born. Online gaming allows players to play with or against each other from all over the world. In 2005, Microsoft took full advantage of this by re-inventing there online gaming community on the Xbox 360,with Xbox Live, which is now the world’s biggest online gaming service.
