JÖNKÖPING, Sweden - Following a positive response at DreamHack Summer 2016, Creative Technology Ltd today announced at DreamHack Winter 2016 a new European program dedicated for students. This new Sound BlasterX program aims to build an exclusive community of young and budding gamers, and making Creative's gaming and audio products more accessible to them.
We believe in gamers for life - no gamer is too old or too young. And, we definitely can relate to students who need precision gaming tools, but are held back by a tight budget. Thus, we are truly excited to introduce a new student-exclusive program that offers premium gaming products at wallet-friendly prices. We want to encourage more young gamers in eSports by equipping them with the right gear to give them that competitive edge and be on equal footage with the big boys out there, said Long Chye Low, General Manager of Creative.
