Talk about cornering a niche market.
I’m not sure about you, dear readers, but personally I think gaming chairs haven’t gone far enough. Sure they come in bright colours, look like they belong in race cars, and are covered in crystals. Some even give massages and may even be loaded up with sweet gamer RGB. You have to admit, it’s all just a bit weak.
Why even bother to have a racing car chair if it isn’t an actual racing car chair. You know? BMW gave us hope with their weird concept throne, but it probably won’t see the light of day. Thankfully Lamborghini isn’t about to let us down thanks to its partnership with gaming chairmakers, Secretlab. The pair have banded together to design a limited edition gaming chair, called the Automobili Lamborghini Pinnacle Edition. It doesn’t appear to have the cool and marvellously extra features like climate control of the BMW concept, but as a point in its corner, it probably will exist at some point. 
It’s described as using the same Alcantra and carbon fibre as what can be found in a bonafide Lambo as well as having a “A concept design inspired by the pure emotion of the ride.” I will let you know if we ever work out what that’s supposed to mean for a gaming chair. The line “made specially for Lamborghini owners” was dropped in the press release, so it’s unlikely I’d have the capacity to understand, or afford one of these anyway. 
If you think you could, you can register your interest in picking one up on the Secretlab site.

Best chair for gaming: the top gaming chairs around
Best gaming desk: the ultimate PC podiums
Best PC controller: sit back, relax, and get your game on
I’ll give it to them on aesthetics at least, it’s not a bad looking chair. The Alcantra looks soft and comfortable and the green trim on the grey plush has a certain gamer adjacent vibe to it. The Titan line of chairs has recently had an interesting redesign that gives it magnets to boot, but there’s no word as to whether these feature in this new limited chair.
Secretlab chairs are some of our favourites, topping our favourite gaming chairs listings. We really enjoyed the Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 and Secretlab Titan Softweave in our recent reviews, so if these chairs don’t actually require Lamborghini ownership or wallet sizes they could be worth a look.

Sony to keep making PlayStation 4 as PS5 output hits snag – New York Post

Published

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.
Sony’s plans to mass produce its new PlayStation 5 gaming console have been put on hold because of disruptions in the global supply chain — forcing the company to keep cranking out its older PS4 systems.
The Japanese tech giant had initially planned to phase out manufacturing of PS4 at the end of last year and move to a full transition to its newer consoles, according to Bloomberg. But now it is pivoting to produce as many as 1 million of the old models in 2022.
After introducing the PS5 in November 2020, supply has been scarce due to shortages in advanced chips and other commodities needed to mass produce the hardware.
This past November, Sony reduced its PS5 production outlook. Initially, it aimed to make more than 16 million units in the year ending in March, but that number was trimmed to 14.8 million.
The older PS4 is cheaper to make and uses less advanced chips and software than its successor. Released in 2013, the PS4 has sold more than 116 million units and remains popular among gamers.
The PS5, which offers more sophisticated graphics and faster loading times than the PS4, was also met with great fanfare. As of September 2021, it has sold 13.3 million total units — surpassing the 7.6 million units that the PS4 sold in its first year of availability nearly a decade ago.
Sony told assembly partners late last year that it is pivoting to manufacture more PS4 consoles this year, though a company spokesperson denied that it had planned to discontinue production altogether.
“It is one of the best-selling consoles ever and there is always crossover between generations,” a spokesperson told Bloomberg.
This past fall, Sony reported a 27% increase in sales in its gaming division for the three-month fiscal quarter that ended on Sept. 30. The firm credited the popularity of the PS5.
In total, the Japanese conglomerate’s gaming division recorded $5.7 billion in sales during the three month period starting in July. Operating income fell 21% to $727 million while the company generated $10.8 billion in revenue.
Sony isn’t the only gaming company that is relying on its older technologies to keep profits flowing during the supply chain crunch.
Last year, Nvidia, the US firm that makes processing units for gaming consoles, revived its previous generation of GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards due to the shortage in semiconductors.
While the company never officially discontinued production of the card, it was not listed for sale as recently as November 2020.
The card was first introduced in 2016, but was gradually phased out in favor of the newer 16-series cards, according to PC Gamer.
Market observers say that the supply chain crisis and chip shortages will likely last through this year.
