Over the last few years, Snakebyte have provided a series of high quality accessories for gamers, ranging from third party controllers to plastic cabinets for holding your game cases. The Gaming:Seat is the company’s first foray into the realm of chairs designed for professional gamers, and will be available to the general public in the next few months.
The box includes everything you need to get started, including the backrest, seat, arm pieces and two pillows to ensure maximum comfort for your head and your lower back. The obligatory gas lift is supplied to allow for head adjustment as well a five wheeled base to ensure fluid movement is possible without any major effort. Two sets of assembly instructions are included, with one having slightly more detailed steps than the other. Although it is fairly simple to put together in around forty minutes, it is highly recommended that you have an additional pair of hands to help you fix the backrest to the main seat, as it requires pin point precision to be installed successfully.
When it is fully assembled, the Gaming:Seat is very similar to the base design of modern gaming chairs. The backrest includes the company’s logo near the top, and a wide seat to ensure that even the largest of gamers will be able to sit down comfortably. The Gaming:Seat will be available in three different colours, which are based around the common colours attributed to the major gaming platforms. PC gamers are given a vibrant yellow, Xbox gamers are given a lime green and PlayStation owners are offered a shade of Sonic the Hedgehog style blue. There are no physical differences between the colours, so it is purely down to preference rather than the beginning of a minor console war.
