Purdue students hope to build a gaming center
Two Purdue students were finalists earlier this week in an entrepreneurship competition for their idea to build a large video gaming center at Purdue.
Jason TenBarge and Ah Young Park hope to create a gaming center that would be called Gamers’ Esc. The gaming center would host 30 computers and 30 consoles. All major consoles would be found at the center. Gamers would pay by the hour to play at Gamers’ Esc.
The idea was a finalist in the Burton D. Morgan Business Plan Competition. If enough interest for the idea is shown then TenBarge and Park may be able to raise enough capital to start the business.

Personally, I think that a gaming center like Gamers’ Esc. could be an awesome hang out at Purdue.
Do you think it would be fun? Would you go there? Do you think it is a good or bad business plan to charge gamers by the hour to play there? Ring off your comments below!
