If you have not checked out the Gig City Gaming center then your missing out. There are over 50 titles to choose from. The gaming systems include the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Play Station 3 and Play Station 4.

The Gig City Gaming area will be host to several different types of games, including titles such as Call of Duty, HALO, Dance Central and Super Street Fighter 4. Early in the day, the younger crowd will find the games that are more up their alley, but as the day goes on, the content may get a little to rough for the little ones.

One of the best features of the gaming center is that it is powered by the speed and reliability of a full GIG of internet bandwidth by CDE. That means there will be no lag, slow down or freezing of your game. Just a smooth gaming experience.

The Gig City Gaming area is sure to be very popular, so staff will be moderating the play time of all participants. Many of the games have a definite start and finish, so once a player finishes a round, match, dancing, or whatever the case might be, they will be required to rotate out to allow the next waiting player time to play.

Gaming, provided by Layer 3 Communications and Brocade Communications Systems, will be available Saturday, April 26th from 10:00am to 8:00pm.

So while your at Rivers and Spires, come by the underground parking garage on Franklin Street between Second and Third Streets and experience the Gig City Gaming Center.
