Konami Turn To Gaming PC’s After Destroying All Their IP

 Konami Turn To Gaming PC’s After Destroying All Their IP

After destroying all of their IP, Konami have now turned to making gaming PC’s for release in Japan, and lets just say it hasn’t gone down too well.

The new brand of PC is called Arespear, and seems to be geared towards esports, considering the tag line – ‘Advanced revolution of esports’, the thing is, people certainly haven’t reacted well to the look or specs of the machines.

Arespear C700+

  • PC case lighting
  • PC case window panel
  • High-quality sound ability
  • Windows 10 Home 64bit OS
  • Water-cooled CPU
  • Intel Core i7 9700 processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics card
  • 16GB (8GB × 2) DDR4-2666 memory
  • 512GB (PCIe NVMe /M.2) SSD
  • 1TB (SATA) HDD

This is the big daddy of the group, coming in at 338,800 yen – which is about £2444, while this isn’t a BAD PC, the specs certainly don’t match up to the massive price tag.

  • 16GB (8GB × 2) DDR4-2666 memory
  • 512GB (PCIe NVMe /M.2) SSD
  • 1TB (SATA) HDD

This one is slightly less powerful, and comes in at 316,800 yen.

Arespear C300

  • Windows 10 Home 64bit OS
  • High-quality sound ability
  • Intel Core i7 9400F processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card
  • 8GB (8GB × 1) DDR4 2666 memory
  • 512GB (PCIe NVMe /M.2) SSD

The bottom of the list, and certainly way less powerful than the other two, it still racks up a quite expensive price for what you’re getting – 184,800 yen.

The response online hasn’t been great, from people asking ‘why Konami?’ to calling it a ‘rip-off’. You can check out more of the reactions here.

There’s no word whether these PC’s make their way west, but it’s highly unlikely, especially after this reaction.
