Ever found yourself sitting at an airport with a flat Nintendo Switch battery and nothing to do while you wait for your flight? Well, if you find yourself at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport there is another option. Airport gaming lounges.
According to a report from Dallas Business Journal, the airport now gives those that want to game the hours stuck at the airport away access to two gaming lounges.
By logging in using their own Xbox accounts, or one supplied by Gameway (the company who manages the lounges), customers can choose between 19 pre-installed games, which include the highly addictive and popular. Currently, these lounges charge about 42 cents per minute, which is surprisingly quite a bit, especially if you are planning to spend substantial time playing.
According to the president of Gameway, the demographic (mid-thirties) most closely associated with gaming are exactly the people who tend to travel a lot. So it only makes sense to cater to their needs. Each station consists of a comfortable leather chair, a 43-inch Tv and noise cancelling headphones.
If you ask us, it’s only a matter of time before airport gaming lounges become standard. Until then, you’ll have to keep that Nintendo Switch fully charged.
