CORE Gaming Leads the Way with Design-Forward, Feature-Rich Carrying Solutions
YORBA LINDA, CA - Gaming backpacks have come a long way from being just convenient storage solutions to becoming highly specialized gear for gamers on the go. CORE Gaming leads the way with design-forward backpacks and bags that are roomy, rugged, and feature-rich, making them must-have accessories for gamers.
“As the gaming industry evolves and the popularity of eSports and mobile gaming surges, carrying solutions need to keep pace,” says Paul June, VP of Marketing for CORE Gaming. “CORE Gaming’s family of award-winning backpacks and bags have all been designed with the needs of today’s—and tomorrow’s—gamers in mind.”
Rise of Laptops and Mobile Gaming
The early days of gaming have roots in the era of bulky desktop computers. Gamers didn't have the need for specialized backpacks then. Gaming was mostly confined to homes, and transporting gaming equipment was not convenient or realistic for many.
With the advent of smaller, lighter laptops and the rise of mobile gaming in the late 1990s and early 2000s, gamers became more mobile. This shift created a demand for backpacks that could safely carry gaming laptops, consoles, accessories, and gaming peripherals. Extra space for personal items didn’t hurt either.
The eSports Boom
The explosive growth of eSports in the 2010s meant that professional gamers and esports enthusiasts needed a way to transport their gaming gear to tournaments and events. This led to the enhancement of backpacks designed specifically for gaming equipment, with features like padded compartments, cable management systems, and extra pockets for peripherals.
Integrating New Technology
As gaming peripherals and devices became more advanced, gaming backpacks started integrating new technology. For example, all CORE Gaming Backpacks and the Deluxe Duffel come prewired for built-in charging stations and an external USB port.
Branding and Aesthetics
Gaming backpacks are not just about functionality. They are also a statement of style for many gamers. In developing its gaming backpacks and bags, CORE Gaming collaborated with gamers, gaming influencers, and designers. The goal was to develop gear that was functional as well as reflective of a gamer's identity. For example, CORE Gaming’s collection of legacy Alienware bags, with the distinctive Alienware logo, smartly combines both function and aesthetics.
Durability and Ergonomics
In addition to style, given how valuable and delicate gaming gear can be, durability and protection have become crucial factors. Modern gaming backpacks are designed with robust materials to protect against bumps and scratches. Ergonomics has also become a focus, with features such as padded shoulder straps and back panels for added comfort.
Some gaming backpacks offer customizable features, allowing users to tailor their backpacks to their specific tech. This can be particularly useful for gamers who have unique setups or want a backpack that can adapt to different types of gaming gear. Highly configurable, the CORE Gaming Tactical Backpack’s modular, external, front webbing offers customizable storage with removable MOLLE pockets.
Designed for Gamers on the Move
As gaming became more mobile, professional, and technologically advanced, gaming backpacks designed to carry gaming gear followed suit, evolving into specialized and stylish accessories. CORE Gaming encourages gamers to check out our most popular gaming backpacks and bags.
All are prewired for built-in charging stations and offer an external USB port. It all comes with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
