The ‘e-room‘ comes with gaming PCs, desk, chair and more.
As the esports industry continues to go from strength to strength, all sorts of innovative products have sprung up in recent years aimed at help players; whether it’s something simple like chopsticks you can use while gaming, to something more extreme, like this intense gaming desk/bed combo.
For serious gamers however, what kind of installation you have is crucial to your success, and for those looking to get into serious gaming, initial setup costs can be daunting. High-performance PCs are expensive, and for gamers switching to PC from consoles, a desk and chair are also required.
Japanese esports company Basra have decided to tackle this problem and are rental of gamer ready apartments for gamers.
The apartments, called ‘e-rooms‘, come furnished with everything a gamer needs — a gaming PC with a gaming monitor, mouse and keyboard, a gaming desk and a gaming chair. PC specs differ depending on the monthly rent; the cheapest ‘beginner package‘ has a monthly rent of 39,000 yen (340 USD) and includes a GeForce GTX1650 PC with an Intel Core i7 processor and 480 GB of SSD. The most expensive ‘elite plan‘, for those who are already serious gamers, costs 69,000 yen ($600) per month and includes a GeForce RTX3070Ti PC with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU and 1TB SSD.

Potential tenants can also choose their keyboard and mouse from a selection of well-known brands, including Logicool, SteelSeries, Corsair and HyperX. There are a total of 50 keyboard/mouse combinations available. An additional option is the “streamer package” which includes a webcam and microphone.
If gaming isn’t your cup of tea, the company also offers the ‘illustrator blueprint’ for digital artists and ‘video creator package’. Both plans offer apartments with computers specifically designed for digital artists and people who make videos, with added extras like drawing tablets and monitor arms.
There are currently two buildings offering e-rooms, both in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, and Basara hopes to expand the e-rooms nationwide in the future.
Applications for e-rooms open from early March, so if you’re looking to improve your quality of gaming life, start packing your stuff into boxes now. And if someone is questioning your life choices, this Japanese Twitter user is there for you.
