HONG KONG. Airport Authority Hong Kong has installed several PS3 Game Poles at various locations in the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for free public access.

Implemented in partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong, the developer of Playstation 3, the PS3 Game Poles comprise a total of 14 units of PlayStation 3.

Stationed at various spots, including areas near the boarding gates at Terminal 1 and the Coach Station at Terminal 2, these PS3 Game Poles allow travellers to enjoy themselves while waiting for flights.

The Game Poles feature the latest PS3 games including the highlights of the Asia Game Show x Online Game Show 2009 (AGS x OGS 2009), such as ‘Final Fantasy XIII, ‘James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game’, ‘Uncharted 2: Among Thieves’, and ‘Assassin’s Creed 2’.

HKIA is one of the busiest airports around the globe, handling the world’s fourth-highest international passenger volume in 2008, according to Airports Council International. An October 2009 study by Cimigo showed that departing passengers’ dwell time at HKIA is around four hours, with an average of over three hours being spent within the restricted area.
