Would You Pay $0.42/min. to Play ‘Fortnite’ at the Airport?

The Dallas/Ft. Worth airport has installed a gaming lounge where you can pay to play popular titles while you wait for your flight.

From the piece at Variety:

The lounges function similar to the popular PC/game rooms in South Korea, except they are not quite as wallet-friendly. For 42 cents per minute, customers can sit down at an available Xbox One and choose from 19 pre-installed titles, including hits like “Fortnite” and “Rocket League.” A far more cost-effective option is to pay $20 for unlimited game time. Players can log into their own Xbox account or use a Gameway-provided account, which is the company that built the lounge.

This seems like a great idea, and would be a great way to while away the time during a layover. But do you think it’s worth it? Let us know in the comments.
