GAMING CHAIRS – A GUIDE TO HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST GAMING CHAIR FOR YOU!

Interactive Minds Limited as the largest stockist, distributor, wholesaler and trade reseller of the largest range of gaming chairs in the UK and Europe are biased about what we consider to be the best gaming chairs currently available. The reason being that we have already as bulk buyers of gaming chairs have effectively had to go through the process any individual buyer has to go through.

The facts now are that gaming is now a mainstream activity. In 2015 it is estimated that the worldwide gaming market spend will amount to something in the region of £150 billion. The sector has gravitated from being purely the preserve of nerdy hobbyists to now including competitive professionals. The worlds top gamers are now feted like rock stars. They earn massive sums of money and perform in front of massive audiences in stadiums. This trend is forecast to continue to grow at pace between now and 2020 at least.

It is also interesting to note that the age demographics of gamers is broadly split 1/3rd under 18 years of age, 1/3rd 18 to 35 years of age and 1/3rd 36 years of age and above. 

These gamers all need furniture on which to enjoy their games. That’s where we with gaming chairs come in!

1.COST

In our opinion the first decision to make is how much are you prepared to spend on a gaming chair – what is your budget.

As in most markets the fact is that the more you spend then the more comfort, style and gadgetry you will generally get.

2 COMFORT/ STYLE

Each individual will have a different approach to comfort and style. Different people rate brand more highly than others. Others will rate comfort over brand. Others will be more concerned to ensure the style of the chair is right – maybe want the chair to colour co-ordinate with the curtains!

3.2 Connectivity

The buyer of the gaming chair needs to decide what options you wish to have when connecting your gaming chair to your chosen audio device. The choices are hard wired, Bluetooth and wireless.

It is interesting to note that all of the gaming chairs with speakers will be sold with speakers that will facilitate the hard wired connection of your gaming chair to the audio output of a television or the like.
