X ROCKER Pilot 2.1Ch Gaming Chair - £29.99 at Currys & PC World

Found 5th Jan 2012
This was posted about a week ago at £39.99. I reserved one at the time but thankfully I never bothered to go and pick it up, as it's now a tenner cheaper at £29.99.

Also, if you're going to vote cold, please point me in the direction of where you can pick up this kind of gaming chair for less than £30. Thanks.

Here's the usual gibber gabber:

"If you are a serious gamer then fully immerse yourself in your games with the X-Rocker Pilot 2.1Ch Gaming Chair.

With 2.1 surround sound the Pilot has two speakers built on the side and a sub-wooder that truely makes you feel part of the game. With added foam for comfort the Pilot is good to go for long periods of time. The X-Rocker Pilot 2.1Ch Gaming Chair can also be used for watching movies and is compatible for all audio sources and console games! Independent volume and bass control means you can make the sound suit your style, and the X-Rocker Pilot folds for easy storage.

The big one with the stand is good, never tried the cheap on though. I'd prefer a poang and surround sound, but I'm getting old now.

How do you connect the audio to the PS3 though?

Set the audio output to rca cables so you have wires all over the place

Mile end and Brixton have stock but none in newcross ( all south London )

Ah screw that. I want the sound coming out of my existing speakers.

Thanks but no thanks.

None in stock where im from but their is 8 miles away hmmm Would be good just to sit in and listen to mp3 :L

It may be 2.1 - but it's no surround sound … just cos they have the speakers on the side lol… some ppl... x

I'm tempted but puts me off having to change the settings every time I want to use the chair.

Would have got it if it didn't have speakers in it and it was £10 cheaper.

these things for £30 are a steal, i got the X Rocker Vision 2.1 for christmas and i love it!!!!

Isn't it annoying having to plug it in and change the settings on the console every time you want to use it?

You could always switch 'Audio Multi-Output' to 'on' in the PS3 sound settings menu. I have headphones connected to my PS3 through HDMI and a pair of surround-sound headphones connected via Optical cable, both of which work through the PS3 without me having to change a thing.

Also, you won't find a gaming chair of this quality for £19.99. I thought £39.99 was a really good price; £29.99 is a steal.

Yeah but I have to have a power cable running to it, and a cable running to it form my PS3.

I don't understand how you connect this to your PS3 though. I currently have my turtle beach headset plugged into the back of my console via an av cable.

Got one of these the other week, its amazing. You dont need to connect the audio from console, just use the audio out on the TV. This way it works for all the consoles, and dvds, etc

You need to plug the chair into a mains socket aswell though?

these any good if ur over 6 ft tall?

Ta, just reserved and picked one up from Cov. Was looking at the other ones posted over Christmas, but I thought its worth a gamble @ £29.99

Are they well padded and comfortable to sit on for a few hours at a time?

No stand that means it will be low?

Wonder if the misses will notice it in the living room (_;)

none in stock anywhere near cardiff, bridgend, newport, caerphilly!!!!!!!!:(

Its basically a kids chair, If your anything over 5ft this gaming chair will be too small for you.

Sorry, cold from me..

We bought XRocker chairs for both my kids, but had to have them replaced several times either due to duff speakers, built in amp, then there's the build quality of the seat itself.

Good price!

Good price and good chair - got XRocker Jet for 49.99 two weeks ago - great addition to PS3

and my wife don't mind....

Can't understand why anyone would want one of these when they can sit on the sofa/bed and play their console 'normally'

Given how many appear daily on Gumtree, looks like I am not alone in thinking they are a waste of time, only difference is I didn't buy one!

I found these to be very uncomfortable if you're over 6 ft, so much so I gave mine to a mate. The sound quality is pretty poor as well.

it looks way too small for an adult

"Also, if you're going to vote cold, please point me in the direction of where you can pick up this kind of gaming chair for less than £30. Thanks"

After that quip i voted cold just to annoy you. Learn to be more subtle young Jedi.

Got it out of the box and had a go. I'm 6ft and its fine, sound is much better than I expected. Its not cushion soft, more like an airplane seat, but perfectly fine. Has all the leads to connect, but they're not that long, so you might need to extend them.

Build of it seems fine, although I can see that if you had heavy handed kids the control panel connections may break after time.

It's definately worth a go at this price; I think you'd be happy @ £50.
