This has everything that the best gaming chair should have.
Racing games are a blast in the arcade, but what makes them so compelling is the fully articulating racing seat that conveys the banked turns and the whiplashing hairpins. So, how do you bring that experience home? With something like the X Rocker 51396 Pro Series or the chair below. If this isn’t an immersive enough experience for you, take a look at our SX02 flight simulator review too.
The X Dream Gyroxus X-Box Gaming Chair is a contoured seat that turns when you turn and tilts when you tilt. They’ve billed it as a full motion controller, which we’d have to agree since the Xbox 360 (or PS3) controller comes built-in to the chair. And rightfully so, since it’s the special controller’s joystick that tells the chair which way it should bank and pitch. As a result, there is no additional software to install or special hookups to add to your gaming console. You might also want to look at the E-WIN gaming chairs that feature luxury and comfort. If you want to create an entire racing simulation in your home, a good place to start would be our Playseat’s F1 Redbull racing seat (does nothing, costs 1,300) review.
Dare I say it’s a deal, but you can grab one from BoysStuff for about $475 (£299.95).
