Zapak.com has announced the launch of its first Gameplex at I-Max Wadala in Mumbai. The gaming portal has also set up a gaming centre at ‘Zapak Live’ at the Times Gizmos & Mobiles Show being held in Mumbai from December 21-23, 2007, where a 30-seater Zapak Gameplex has been recreated.
The Gameplex has already been launched in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Indore, Pune, Jaipur and Delhi. Like the other Zapak Gameplexes, this 35-seater gaming zone will have the best of gaming titles, ambience and gaming PCs.
Commenting on the initiative, Rohit Sharma, COO, Zapak Digital Entertainment Ltd, said, “Zapak Live was our initiative to expose those people to gaming, who have already not got on to that bandwagon, apart from the ones who eat, breathe, smell and live games. It was provided the perfect setting at the Times Gizmos & Mobiles Show, which provided a similar target audience as ours – males and females in the 15-22 agegroup.”
Zapak Live, where a three-day gaming tournament based on popular titles like Counter Strike, FIFA ’07 and Need for Speed will be held, will give away Rs 2 lakh as prize money besides other hi-tech prizes. Zapak Live is being presented by HP Pavilion Notebooks and the Zapak Gameplex Tournament by Intel.
