On Friday the 6th of July, Currys/PC World at the Morfa Shopping Park in Swansea, doors were opened within the store for their new gaming arena.
This new arena features a dedicated 24 user area set up with the latest in gaming technology and can be considered to be staffed by gamers for gamers.
Every unit at this site will feature a 100mb internet connection, and unlike most other gaming arenas in the UK, it is completely free to enter. This makes a great choice for anyone down Swansea way looking to get into streaming on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer or Facebook.
Already we have seen Welsh Gaming Network members attend the Currys gaming venue, with the biggest positive being the ability to try out new streaming and gaming equipment before buying.
The staff are dedicated to gaming, and if you share their passion, Currys/PC World are hiring for members of staff to join/lead their teams on this project which you can apply for here.
I am excited to see where they take this, as I will always encourage more local community gaming venues and events. This may even give us a reason to hold monthly meet ups for Swansea locals so watch this space, and keep an eye out on our Discord server for more info.
If you are interested in finding out more about the new Currys gaming centre, speak with @Tricell on the Welsh Gaming Network Discord.
