LO1 - Lesson 8 - Hardware

  1. 1. Hardware Lesson 8
  2. 2.  Know hardware required to create video games  Understand peripherals used for game play & testing  Be able to describe typical peripherals used for game play Lesson Goals #peripheral #hardware
  3. 3. Marking Marks Learning Objective 1 – 3 Pass Demonstrate a limited understanding of gaming platform hardware and peripherals required to create and test digital games. 4 – 6 Merit Demonstrate a sound understanding of gaming platform hardware and peripherals required to create and test digital games. 7 – 9 Distinction Demonstrate a thorough understanding of gaming platform hardware and peripherals required to create and test digital games.
  4. 4. Game Playing Devices Which peripherals are common across all devices? Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals #peripheral #hardware
  5. 5.  The typical peripherals that are common across most devices are: Peripherals #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals Device Computer, console, tablet, phone Viewing Television, monitor, touchscreen Controlling Standard, sensors, specialist Additional Disc drive, storage, audio, Internet
  6. 6.  There always needs to be a device with which peripherals can be connected to and which controls the overall system. Device #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals  This device will typically be a desktop computer, a games console or even a portable device such as an iPad, tablet or mobile phone.  Each device will have a different technical specification:  Memory  Processor
  7. 7.  Each device requires some method of allowing a user to view the game that they are playing in real time. Viewing #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals  Some devices may have a display already built into them:  Tablet  Mobile Phone  Other devices such as consoles and computers require the use of an external display such as:  Monitor  Television
  8. 8.  All games require a method of interaction between the game and user so a player is given a controller to allow this to happen. Controlling #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals  A controller can take many different forms depending on the device:  Controller  Joystick  Keyboard & Mouse  Sensors  There are also some specialist game controllers that can be used to allow easier control of certain games.
  9. 9.  Most game playing devices will have some method of saving progress and therefore require a type of storage. Additional #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals  Many devices also now allow a user to connect to the Internet and may allow players to talk to each other by using a headset or microphone.  Standard peripherals which are often forgotten include:  Disc Drive  Speakers  Headphones
  10. 10.  Describe the role each type of peripheral plays in the following key areas listed below:  Device  Viewing  Controlling  Additional  Explain why each type of peripheral is necessary and give examples of different versions being used in games consoles. Your Task #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Describe the role of peripherals
  11. 11. Keywords  Peripheral  Hardware  Devices that are connected to a computer but not classed as a main part.  The physical parts of a computer system that allow it to work. #peripheral #hardware Research hardware requirements Understand role of peripherals
