How to achieve the most stimulating possible gaming fun? This is always what the players pursue and what the hardware manufacturers consider. With the rapid progress of game terminals in recent years, while PCs are being upgraded without stop, terminals like Xbox360, PSP and WII have become something necessary for players. Meanwhile, players' requirements for the display are getting higher and higher, from black-and-white to HD, from the big screen to IMAX, from 12 inches to larger sizes, and from the obtainment of fun to the pursuit of glory.

On the evening of November 21st, 2010, online gaming scenes were suddenly shown on the sky screen of The Place, which's located in Beijing and themed by "Everyone in Beijing Looks up". At 8:40 p.m. on that day, a man drove his car under Asia's currently largest LED screen that's placed above The Place in Beijing, opened his notebook PC with an access to the wireless network, and played the online game lying in a prepared lounging chair.
