The gaming world is becoming a very interesting place. With the convergence of hi-quality audio video entertainment and home theater products with Gaming PCs and video game consoles, the Entertainment rooms and home offices of America are getting more and more sophisticated - especially when you consider that the age of the average gamer is increasing and, as a result, so is the average gamer's spendable income.

The Ultimate Game Chair (yes, that's the name of the company and the product) is bridging the gap between the plushness of the home theater realm and the control and interaction of the gaming realm. The Ultimate Game Chair is a pillowtop black leather recliner with high impact game vibration, split left and right patented custom controllers, an adjustable 3D stereo speaker system and available matching footstool. It's compatible with Xbox, Xbox Live, PC (USB 2.0), PS2 and GameCube.

I would love to tell you what it's like to sit in and play, but of the three different occasions I went by to try it out, both of the units on display were occupied by gamers with smiles plastered all over their faces. Unfortunately, I had a lot of companies to cover, so I didn't get a chance to try it out myself, but check back for an in-depth report when we get one in-house for some hands-on testing. Based on the enthusiasm of the gamers trying it out, I'm expecting it to be pretty amazing.
