“A new console game title costs 2499/- to 3000/- The life of a game is what – 2 months? I wanted to create a concept where people could try out the video games before actually buying them. We give you the chance to check out the games that you would like to purchase later,” says Ishwar Awatramani.

Ishwar, a hardcore gamer himself says,”I have been playing video games ever since I can remember. I started with games on my first ever Apple Macintosh computer when I was 9 years of age. Over the years, I evolved from NES system to PS2. And now to PS3 & XBOX 360. I own almost 10 consoles.”

According to him there are millions and millions of video gamers in India spanning from the competitive PC gamers to the PS3 and Xbox
games. It is overwhelming to know how much the younger generation knows and keeps track about the upcoming releases and prices. We say gaming has arrived.

His basic target segment isn’t really kids at all but mature adults from 25-35 years of age. Within 30 days of launch, there are already 60 dedicated 6 months memberships. They have booked 30 pre-orders.

“With the shortage of entertainment and the rise in technology orientation; I would say that the sky is the limit when it comes to
gaming,” Ishwar says confidently.
