Instead of making decent new Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid games, Konami is now making gaming desktop PCs. The company currently has three desktop PC models for pre-order, with shipping slated to happen sometime in September 2020.
The new desktop PC Arespear product line is under Konami Amusements, which also runs Konami’s arcade systems and esports. The models range from 184,000 yen (roughly US$1,750 in the US) to 338,800 yen (US$3,205) depending on the specifications (via Tom’s Hardware).
The Arespear C300 is the low-cost model, with an i5-9400F processor, a GTX 1650, 8GB of DDR4-2666 memory and a 512GB SSD, while the Arespear C700 and C700+ have better specs: a water-cooled i7-9700, an RTX 2070 Super and 16GB DDR4-2666 memory. The latter two models feature the same 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD as the C300 but come with an additional 1TB hard drive.
The difference between the C700 and C700+ is that the latter comes with RGB lighting and a windowed case for an additional 22,000 yen (around US$210). All models have a discrete sound card in the form of the Asus Xonar AE.
