Earlier today, Lenovo Philippines celebrated a new milestone, as it officially opened its first Legion concept store in the country, located at SM City North EDSA Annex. Concurrently, the brand also launched its first gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce RTX Graphics, bringing the beauty of Raytracing to games, for a more lifelike and immersive experience.
The Legion store features a wide range of products which visitors can try and play games on. Occasionally, it will also be a venue for mini gaming tournaments to further create engagement with the gaming community. It’s in fact, just one of the many Legion concept stores that are set to open across the country.
“As the gaming market grows exponentially every year, we at Lenovo would like to maintain our commitment in providing best performing and top of the line devices to the Philippines, which includes the Legion line of gaming notebooks. The exclusive Legion store was conceptualized to support the local gaming culture and provide virtually everything that a gamer needs.”
– Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager Michael Ngan
