At the recent China Joy gaming expo in Shanghai, a rich gamer apparently rented an entire booth so he could have it all to himself and play a new online game.
According to reports, the gamer booked the booth for 30 minutes, and there were even three booth companions on hand to fan him while he played. Other attendees were blocked off and not allowed to enter the booth during this block of time.
The gamer’s behaviour pissed off his fellow gamers, and one individual got so upset that he threw a wad of cash, demanding the same service.
China’s rapid rise has meant that there’s a generation of nouveau riche kids — a generation that often is on the receiving end of scorn when they flaunt their wealth.
Not sure who is more arrogant, though: the guy who rented the booth and then had companions fan him or the guy who threw the money when he got upset.
