Hong Kong Intl. Adds PS3

BY Andrew Miesner / January 26, 2010

Has your flight ever been delayed? Do you sometimes wish you could have brought along your electronic device to make time fly by? Hong Kong International Airport will help you out on that one because they have installed Playstation 3 Game Poles in various locations and terminals within the aiport itself. The PS3 gaming poles are free to use for any passanger that is leaving out of the international terminals. They feature some of the best games of 2009 such as Final Fantasy XIII, Uncharted 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Avatar: The Game.

The Hong Kong International Airport is in the process of implementing a reminder system, where passengers can input their departing flights so that the obsessive gamer would not miss a flight because he/she had to beat just one more mission.

Even though there are only fourteen PS3 consoles in the airport, it comes in an advertising campaign, as Hong Kong International Airport has the fourth-highest international passenger volume according to a 2008 survey, and people tend to hang around waiting for flights for about four hours on average.
