An initiative called e-room dedicated to gaming is born in Japan. The project allows you to rent mini-apartments with everything you need to play in peace.
e-Room: in Japan studios are rented exclusively for gaming
Enjoying video games is often not easy. Gaming equipment comes at a cost and tends to wear out, not to mention the hardware components. Then maybe not everyone has a good car, or even just a dedicated seat. Not to mention the environment: the videogame is an immersive experience, so not having chaos in the house is a fundamental requirement. The solution to all these problems, at least in Japan, seems to have arrived: studios, rentable, with everything you need: from furniture to high-performance PC for gaming and a good video card. The price? From 300 to 600 euros per month, depending on the higher or lower specifications of the computer. Here are two examples of “package”, but there are obviously intermediate options:
- 39.000 Yen (about 300 euros) with a PC equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GTX1650, a 480 GB SSD and an Intel Core i7 processor
- 69.000 Yen (around 600 euros), with PC equipped with NVIDIA GeForce RTX3070Ti, a 1 TB SSD and an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor;
There are also specific options for streamers, with dual screens and webcamp included. The whole is part of the project called e-Roomcreated by the Japanese brand Basara. The company, which is currently only active in certain cities, has announced plans to expand the project nationwide. Would you find a market in Italy? To gamers the arduous sentence.
