In the near future, there will be more support such as E-sports training given to amateur players to make them bloom into professional players in Asia.

Mr. Romulo Reyes’ speech, Managing Director of Elite Global Sourcing Inc., is about how gaming began and how it evolved. In 1983, after the very first and acknowledged commercial game console was released, the video gaming industry was making 3.2 Billion US Dollars. However, during the same year, the “Video Game Crash of 1983” happened wherein market saturation occurred due to poorly made products and greedy producers. This crash nearly killed the future of the gaming industry. Mr. Romulo Reyes himself experienced this crash wherein there were no games to be bought that lasted for two years.

One of the greatest factors happened was when the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) prompt up the gaming industry. By 2025, the gaming industry’s projected global revenue, according to Variety Magazine, will be at 300 Billion US Dollars, which is a hundred times more than it was in back in 1983. Mr. Romulo Reyes stated that we haven’t reached a hundred years of gaming, not unlike the movie industry and we are making more today.

In the present time, we have pc games, console games, and mobile games. As the industry grows, now, we have virtual reality, augmented reality and cloud gaming (can be achieved using 5G connection). The future of gaming is very bright and shifting to a more dominant free to play. The future of gaming is bright that Korea and the Philippines are working together towards it. Mr. Romulo Reyes stated that the company is fortunate in working with GITCT in promoting a stronger relationship to move forward in the future. GITCT does not focus on the gaming industry but also in businesses and even pledging to provide scholarships for Filipino students in the realm of gaming.
