Omega Sektor is basically a giant gaming centre equiped with hitech gear for the ultimate gaming experience. It is based in the old Virgin megastore building in Birmingham city centre at the top nearly of Corporation Street.
I was lucky enough to visit the day before opening of this place along with the press, and got to try out pretty much everything there, consequently I have returned a couple of times and its fantastic.
There are different themed rooms, all with state of the art systems loaded with all the latest games. There is also a familly room downstairs, a VIP area, a beanbag and movie area and a bar. Also as an added bonus the chairs are so comfy.
Its free to join, and its £5 each time you go but you can stay as long as you want and theres loads of things from Wiis, Xbox to PS3 and of course the computers.
Its definatly a gamers heaven, although not for me.
I'm not a gamer myself, and hearing about Omega Sektor I had to check it out. I can honestly say that I've never seen anything the size/scale of this when it comes to gaming, it really is a cyber paradise, the gamer's dream come true. The budget must have been astonomical, and i cannot understand how they have spent so much money on this place. It opened in teh summer of 2007, and it provides
a 21st Century arcade style gaming, providing a casual yet high-tech social experience for all ages and abilities. You pay £5 membership which is a one-off fee, and then can roam the club, and play consoles, buying time on a particlar station at your leisure. There are many chill out areas and cafes to relax in between games.
I heard of a week night 18+ gaming night that they were doing, where you can have a few drinks and play a few shoot-em up games with mates, sounds great to me, with the academy just round the corner for after...well worth checking out i think!
I can see something like this taking off, as there's nothing on the same scale in Brum, and with its prime location just 2 mins away from teh Bull Ring, i wish them the best of luck, and encourage you guys to check it out!
This was the best lan centre in the country, but it has now closed down. The prices were very low and enabled you to play on high-spec computers for as long as you wanted. The also hosted many tournaments in which goods would be given away! The staff were very nice and would help you if you got stuck on a game. I remember having a tactical chat about Call of Duty 4 when i seemed to be at an all time gaming low. Shame it has closed down.
I attended the official opening of this place and I must say that I was blown away. It is the biggest gaming place in Europe. Players can visit the place to play and compete with each other in regular competitions where winners can win money. This place really lives up to the hype with great interior designs and different themed rooms. There is are rooms entirely devoted to ps3's, wii's etc. Definetely worth visiting for any person into gaming. It's also quite cheap compared to other places.
fantastic place for gaming.

Omega Sektor is a gaming heaven; high quality machines, friendly, if a little cliquey, staff and a safe, fun environment. As a female gamer who loves all-nighters, it has felt a lot safer than other establishments. The Wii rooms are good fun, along with the expected games any good net cafe should have.
Only downside is the policy on removing unpopular games - my favourite was removed a while back.
