A new business is opening up in a mall not far from me. As a gamer it seem like a neat idea, but as a sustainable business for a long period of time I'm not sure how long it will last. I realize alot of the people on these forums are computer gamers and I think this is more geared towards console gaming but I was curious about your opinions or if you have something similiar in your area. The link for the places website is below along with some quotes from their site. As for the poll I'm just curious if it's someplace you would check out.
Pricing:PRESS PLAY is a video game lounge with weekly tournaments that will be located in the Westfield Annapolis Shopping Mall. The lounge will have several stations with XBOX, PLAYSTATION3, and Wii video gaming consoles and will provide you with a place to play and challenge friends at video games in a high quality setting with couches, flat screen HDTV 3-D ready, and surround sound systems for each station.
At PRESS PLAY customers will be able to preview full version of video games instead of the limited demo versions available online. This way you can REALLY see if you’ll like the game before you spend $50 – $60 on it. Along with previewing the newest games, our customers will also be able to test the newest technology in gaming accessories like 3-D gaming, XBOX Kinect, and the PLAYSTATION Move.
Each week PRESS PLAY will host multiple gaming tournaments in some of the most popular games available like Call of Duty, HALO, Madden, Street Fighter, etc. There will be plenty of chances for customers to win great prizes like gift cards, tickets to major events, and even CA$H!!
PRESS PLAY allows you to get paid for doing what you love. Play with purpose!
At PRESS PLAY you’ll have the following options:
30 minutes of play = $6.99
60 minutes of play = $10.00
Become A Member: $5.00 (monthly)
Membership allows you to access your OWN profile for online gaming. This allows you to see what the online multi-player option of a game has to offer.
Customers will also be able to take advantage of our PLAY PASS.
The PLAY PASS lets you pay $40.00 to play your favorite games for 6 hours that can be spread out over time. We’re giving you two extra hours of play.
That is a $60.00 value!!!
Entering a PRESS PLAY tournament will require a registration fee which will vary based on the game and type of tournament. Most tournaments will have an entrance fee of $20.00 (dependent on the game)
