Blur: Gaming heaven in Chennai

What do you get when you put six Wiis, seven Playstation 3s, ten Xbox 360s, a bunch of PCs running 8800 GTs and a massive selection of arcade games in one place? Gaming heaven! But not satisfied with that, the guys behind Blur went one step further and threw in the most comfy-looking recliners, a café, and a bowling alley to make sure you’ll never want to go back home.

Blur is a massive gaming lounge spread out over 15,000 square feet at the Sathyam Complex in Chennai. Only recently launched, everything a gamer could ever want is here; they even have PS2s, PSPs and Nintendo DSs.

And unlike some other game lounges in the country that will make you consider buying a PS3 rather than paying for an hour there, Blur is surprisingly affordable; Rs 60 for an hour of PC or console gaming, Rs 300 for unlimited gaming on a weekday and Rs 400 for weekends. They even have a monthly package.

There’s nothing much I can really say about Blur; the pictures speak for themselves. But if you do want to read more about Chennai’s new gaming haven, head over to the TechSutra blog for rates and more detailed info on Blur (and a big thanks to Manu for the heads up).

    well how many of u visited the place? i went to the CoD4 tournament on 25th Dec.. i was stunned by the organisers, how noobish they organised The tournament.. they said players shouldn’t camp rofl.. they are spoiling the gameplay for their own likes and dislikes.. they don’t even know camping is a gaming style (even though i dnt like it personally)..
