In most instances, the platforms are developed and produced differently but are intended to work hand in hand with the games. Compatibility issues have been one of the biggest challenges in the video game industry. This has been widely noticed with some of the most anticipated titles over the past 5 years resulting in critically negative reviews and poor sales in some cases.
Spending a lot of time and effort in developing a game is not all what is required. All customers should have consistent and expected user experience. This is why compatibility testing is very crucial for a game to be successful. Hence, the requirement for a solid team when it comes to compatibility testing.
The below approach in addition to our vast inventory across platforms, has helped us nail the compatibility requirements for our clients every single time.
Although we identify different platforms as Android, iOS, Xbox, PlayStation etc. there is a lot going on at the hardware end of things as well. Difference in chipsets, resolution, processors, drivers, OS, firmware etc. affects the performance of the game across all configurations.
At iXie Gaming, we determine what the trackable data points should be for a game on any platform with respect to game compatibility test requirements. These range from OS compatibility to resolutions, GPUs, Framerate, Load times, Memory usage etc.
This helps us meet the customer’s expectations in hard data points and highlight areas of concern.
You are at the right place. iXie’s end-to-end compatibility services includes testing browsers, hardware, network, mobile devices, PC etc.
