In pics: Acer's gaming portfolio
From powerful desktops and laptops to all-in-one gaming chairs, Acer has plenty of hardware to show-off for gaming enthusiasts
Acer Middle East has announced a record 94% growth in revenues in its gaming line of products. The vendor has experienced strong growth in specific sub-segments including gaming, thin and light and chromebooks for the corporate and education sectors, and an all-in-one gaming chair - Acer Predator Thronos.
The surge in demand for gaming products comes from products shipped to countries such as Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt. According to Acer, its sell-in revenue grew 29% in the UAE and 64% in the Gulf countries including Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain.
Acer will soon launch its gaming platform in the Middle East that was first launched last year in June in Taipei.
"Our eSports Planet9 is an open community platform that allows gamers to build their team, train for excellence and battle for victory. Planet9 is an online platform designed to help gamers find teammates with similar skill levels and goals. It also helps players improve by providing them with feedback about their performance. The platform is designed to allow all players to make data-backed decisions about how they can improve, what weak areas they should try to cover and what strengths they should capitalise upon," Paul Collins, general manager for MEA at Acer told Channel Middle East.
