As an entertainment and event facility, Axis Replay will provide gamers with a place to socialize with other gamers while having access to a 10G connection, over 100 gaming systems, private gaming and meeting rooms, a bar and café, and more. Companies will be able to subscribe to creative co-working space for hi-tech conferences and networking. Weekly tournaments and new product demos are also planned.
“In an era of connectivity, we’ve never been so disconnected. Axis Replay is designed to connect gamers in a fun and social environment. Friends, family, business associates, and new acquaintances can spend their leisure time playing hi-tech games while eating, drinking, and having a good time,” said Young.
