Konami Launches A Line Of Gaming PCs

6

Besides developing video games, Konami has long made arcade, pachinko, and other amusement hardware. Now, it adds gaming PCs to that list.

The PC gaming brand is called Arespear and features the tagline, “Advanced revolution of esports.” The name is from Greek mythology, combining “Ares” with the word “spear.” Currently there are three entries in the line up: the Arespear C700+ for 338,800 yen ($US3,228 ($4,508)), Arespear C700 for 316,800 yen ($US3,018 ($4,215)), and the Arespear C300 for 184,800 yen ($US1,760.94 ($2,459)).

Here are the specs for each PC:

As seen on Japanese site My Game News Flash, the reaction to these gaming PCs regarding both the specs and the price has not been good, with the case design also being called “not cool” and these gaming PCs being labelled “garbage.” Yikes!
