    Getting Started In Your Computer Video Game Business

    Videos games are usually indoor, requiring a level of structure. A couple of appliances will need to be put together to constitute a game environment. I will be highlighting them thus-

    Game center: The place where the game appliances are set up and prepared for play. This is one of the most important aspects of game stations. A well located game center results in high patronage, therefore, make sure you get a location where people who are game oriented could be found.

    The size of your computer video game business center should depend on how many people you anticipate. But sometimes, location and scarcity of shops could make you use whatever is available. In that case, you have to use what is available to achieve your objective by cutting unnecessary  appliances in order to create space for more players. The cost of a shop/ location to be used as a game center varies and depends on the size and where it is situated.

    Setting it up: Primarily, what you need to set the place up are TV sets and chairs (in some settings, chairs are not required). The TVs and chairs should be set to accommodate two players or more, but the overall setting should be based on the space available.

    Now the game machines have to be connected to the TVs and tested. If the game center is big enough, it is better to categorize it according to games. Football here, kids and family games there, and other games in their respective positions.

    Generator: Get a standby generator to upset the deficiency of PHCN. Your business will require a constant power supply to keep the game players busy. So, get UPS to keep the games going when power fails until you restore it alternatively. (using the generator)

    Choosing your games: Your target audience is a factor that could enable you to choose the types of games to feature. The most common games have been football, other games could be found in Nintendo 3DS family packs, which gives children alternative to football. Other games could be featured, selecting from the list of games above. Just find one that would appeal to your audience. Note: You have to get the consoles first, new or fairly used.

    How You Will Make Money From Computer Video Game Business

    Game play charges are served in minutes, for instance, 10 minutes play could cost N100.00, that’s 2 players.

    So every 10 minutes, a set of play generates N100.00, if there are 6 sets in 60 minutes you will make N600.00.

    If you have a busy weekend, you may make as much as N7200.00 in 12 hours. It could be more, it all depends on how big your game center is.
