Sydney Has A New Alienware-Powered Virtual Reality Gaming Lounge

Alienware Live AU is a new initiative with Sydney internet cafe City Hunter launching in Chatswood this August, featuring 28 high-end Alienware PCs with two of them running VR setups — both an Oculus Rift and a HTC Vive.

Alienware says this is a way to experience the latest Alienware hardware, enhance the City Hunter community, and give the opportunity for people to some games in a fully immersive environment.

The PCs will showcase Alienware’s entire range of Area 51, Aurora, Alpha, and gaming laptop lines. The VR space will be home to an Oculus Rift space, powered by an Alienware Alpha and Graphics Amplifier, as well as an HTC Vive area which will be running on Alienware’s new VR-ready Aurora desktop PC.

Both VR experiential spaces will also be running on Dell’s 43-inch 4K monitors.

City Hunter Co-Founder Jun Zhong says that Alienware Live AU will be “the perfect place for our community to come and experience the latest gaming hardware in a first-class venue, complete with the newest games like Overwatch, Doom and high-end VR experiences.”

The space will launch on 18 August, with official pricing to be confirmed. We’ll be sure to let you guys know when we hear more, but fingers crossed it’s in keeping with the cafe’s regular price structure.
