Singaporeans love their video games. On the early Saturday morning, gamers started queueing for their much-anticipated limited-edition loot bag at the grand opening of Gam3.Asia, the world’s first integrated eSports, gaming and retail hub.
This event saw the opening ceremony ending with representatives from M1, Alienware, MSI, Aorus, Asus ROG, Razer and Logitech lighting up a customised display, a symbol that they are committed to bring eSports in Singapore to the next level.
“I think it’s important to note that we don’t want to be retail-focused…competitive gaming has taken the rest of the world by storm and we think that Singapore is the perfect place to cultivate into a regional eSports hub”. – Mr Jeffrey Phua, Director of Pro Concepts Pte Ltd.
Unique Membership Program
Gam3.Asia eSports Club will be pushing out a unique membership programme meant for gamers from all walks of life. The more competitive, the better. This membership seeks to seek and train young gaming talent and hence, start with giving players a chance at challenging their fellow compatriots.
What’s more, there will be bonuses such as early-bird access to community events, and the additional chance to try out products while gaming in-store, get better and exclusive deals and flash sales to give dedicated gamers that extra advantage to fuel their eSports journey.
All eSports fans know it’s hard to find a dedicated training arena. Hence, Gam3.Asia seeks to tackle this issue head on. Rather than charge hourly rates, it will let members have free access to its facilities.
“We believe that this will encourage aspiring eSports teams to practice together in an environment that prepares them for larger tournaments. We have feedback that we are on the right track with this,” Mr Phua said, “and I hope that our fellow gamers continue to aid us in making eSports accessible to all.”
Gam3.Asia will be open from Monday to Thursdays between 11 am to 8 pm, and from Friday to Sundays between 11 am to 9 pm. The eSports Club will have extended hours for special screenings of eSports tournaments, as well as during select community events.
