Coolest Gamer Ever Plays MMO On Asia's Biggest LED Screen

How many people can say that?

Coolest Gamer Ever Plays MMO On Asia's Biggest LED Screen
 
 

Anyone who pays $15,000 to play a computer game on an enormous screen seemingly floating from the sky deserves an unbelievable amount of admiration. And that's exactly what this guy did.

Measuring in at over 80,000 square feet, larger than a football field, the ginormous screen at The Place in Beijing is a sight to behold. It usually decorates the city with spectacular images of oceans and scenery, and in 2008 showcased huge broadcasts of the Olympic games.

But on Sunday night, it was all controlled by one man. He brought his personal laptop to the scene, tapped into the center's wireless network, and streamed his favorite MMO game for all to see for about 10 minutes.

It was all on the up-and-up. The man rented out the screen to show his obsession (and assumedly, his wealth). It's being reported that the hardcore player had to spend around 100,000 renminbi to have access to the screen for 10 minutes. That's approximately $15,000.

The game is in Chinese and we're not sure what MMO it is, but does it really matter? This guy paid $15,000 to play it for 15 minutes on the world's second-largest LED screen. Our hats are off to him.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
