Ultimate Game Chair plus Capcom = vibrator cleverly disguised as gaming chair!

I’m not much for gaming chairs, as I have a rather comfy sofa corner that seems to serve the purpose just fine without vibrating against my ass every time I find a health potion, but some people like that sort of thing, you know. Ultimate Game Chair has decided to take it a step further, partnering with Capcom to release the Reactor Video Game chair. No one told them videogame is one word, I guess.

Anyway, 180 greenbacks will score you one of these thrones come later this year. Not only does it feature stereo sound and eight vibrating motors, but it also has a massage function to keep you energized while you play. As far as I can tell, the only reason the Capcom logo is on it is just … well … to have a chair with the Capcom logo on it. Good if you’re a huge Capcom fan, I’d wager. There will be a non-branded version of the chair available for $200 as well, if you don’t dig the branding.

I’m completely skeptical on the concept of a chair pre-made for gaming, but like I said, I have my sofa corner. Would you guys buy something like this? I’d like to be enlightened to hear about the adventures one can have in such an item, and if it really enhances the gameplay experience.
