Acer has just unveiled the company’s Predator Thronos gaming chair – perhaps the most feature-packed ‘chair’ on the market.

While Acer is using the term ‘chair’ to describe the product, some say it’s more like a gaming ‘throne’. Whether you see a ‘throne’, ‘chair’ or ’seat’, what Acer has created is a nearly 500-pound contraption that lets gamers live inside the game.

Interestingly, Acer just announced two new 27-inch monitors around the time they unveiled the chair. On the high-end, there’s the $1,300, 3840 x 2160 Predator XB273K. On the less-expensive end, customers can purchase a $900 27-inch Nitro XV273K.

The Predator Thronos gaming chair heightens the overall experience by surrounding gamers in a cockpit-like environment. To elevate the entertainment value, Acer’s gaming chair “can vibrate in sync with the games you’re playing, recline up to 140 degrees.”

Acer hasn’t confirmed a price or release date for the new gaming chair.
