SAN FRANCISCO — A new gaming chair reportedly comes with a seat belt to strap yourself in for a fully immersive gaming experience, sources have confirmed.
“Whoa, that thing looks gnarly,” said local gamer Brandon Fortner, after viewing an advertisement for the new XTSeat CR1500, which boasts a seat belt across the lap, similar to those found in cars and roller coasters. “I mean, these things have looked like the seats in race cars for years already, fuck it, why not throw a seat belt in there. Lord knows I fall out of my seat while playing Rocket League more often than I’d like to admit. Maybe I’ll get one of these.”
The seat belt is but one of several new features coming to the CR1500 that takes inspiration from automobiles.
“This is really going to be the best gaming chair on the market, hands down,” said Dave Clackstone, CEO of HyperSpace Gaming Chairs. “We finally just went for it and added a seat belt. Fuck it. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We also have added seat warmers, a cup holder, and a power window on the left side of your face that you can roll up or down, if you’d like. There is also an airbag in the seat that will eject you into the air when jumpscares happen. It’s so, so cool.”
The HyperSpace XTSeat CR1500 will be available this holiday season for $2,499.
