Skolkovo resident PlayKey, whose technology allows gamers to play the most up-to-date games on outdated computers, was featured in TechCrunch this week after exhibiting at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York, together with nine other Skolkovo startups.
What if you’ve wanted to join the PC gaming community, but don’t have the means to purchase a PC that costs thousands of dollars?

PlayKey’s business is based around its servers located in Amsterdam, London and Frankfurt, while being headquartered in Russia.
