Japanese games firm Konami is entering the PC hardware market.
As reported by local news outlet PC Watch – and spotted by Tom's Hardware – the company's Konami Amusement division is now taking pre-orders for the Arespear PCs. These are set to launch in September.
The firm has three PCs available at the moment. The C300 is the cheapest at ¥184,800 ($$1,760) boasting an Intel i5-9400F, 8GB of DDR5-2666 RAM and an Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU.
The C700 and 700+ (pictured) come with higher specs and price tags – ¥316,800 ($3,016) and ¥338,800 ($3,226) respectively – with an i7-9700 CPU and 16GB of DDR4-2666 RAM as well as an RTX 2070 Super. The latter features a transparent side panel and RGB lighting.
Though in the West, we know Konami as a computer games computer, in Japan, it's a far-reaching business that operates gyms and gyms.
Last year, the firm said that it had dreams of being a global leader for esports and rebranded its flagship Pro Evolution Soccer franchise as eFootball PES. Konami is also building a 12-story esports centre in Tokyo.
