Konami, the Japanese manufacturer of the famous Arcade machines, might not be at par with industry rivals in the release of historic gaming franchises but it is taking control of the market in its own way with the launch of desktop gaming PCs of considerable specifications and topnotch gaming speed. Konami is currently taking a step back from Pachinko gaming equipment and focusing on the release of a series of gaming PCs. So, forget Metal Gear, or Silent Hill, or Castlevania gaming franchises, as Konami is ready with the first line of gaming PCs.
The Japanese developer of games, Konami, has released three low-to-mid range PCs of new Arespear branding, complete with headphones and keyboards. The three entries of the line of Arespear PCs include C700, C300, and C700+. The line-up of PCs is being developed by the department of Konami Amusements that handles the esports, Pachinko, and Arcade machine products.
The least costly of the three is the entry-level gaming PC, C300. C300 comes with an Intel Core of configuration i5-9400F, 512 GB NVMe M.2 SSD, 8 GB DDR4-2666MHz RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650. The hardware specifications of C700+ and C700 are similar, and constitute an Intel Core of configuration i7-9700 CPU, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super, 1 TB HDD, 512 GB NVMe M.2 SSD, and 16 GB DDR4-2666MHz RAM. The only difference between C700+ and C700 is that the gaming desktop C700+ is equipped with a windowed panel for more convenient gaming. C700+ is slightly more upgraded than C700 and features RGB lighting and transparent case side plating as well.
The gaming PCs feature silver and black perforated grills at the front and constitute mid-or-mini compact tower designs. All three of the gaming PCs consist of an Asus Xonar AE sound card as well.
The desktop gaming PC, C300, has an approximate cost of 1350 pounds, while C700 and C700+ cost around 2300 pounds and 2500 pounds respectively. All the three gaming PCs of Konami will be primarily available in Japan, and shipping shall start in late September. However, Konami is seeking to expand the market base, and make the gaming PCs available in the markets of other countries as well.
The “Metal Gear” developer, Konami, is famous in the West for its huge collection of console games, but in Japan, Konami is a top-ranker in the industry due to Konami’s business in gambling machinery and arcade installation. Konami is pretty renowned to the Japanese audience, and so, the company has made a smart move by entering into the business of hardware through the launch of desktop gaming PCs.
