'HotSeat' doubles up with twin game simulator

The second seat is only the beginning of this super-loaded system.


The last time we saw a "HotSeat" game simulator, it was a relatively bare-bones setup, at least compared with some others on the market back then. But with competition getting increasingly insane, it clearly needed to upgrade its offerings--lest it be named HotSeat for reasons other than intended.

BornRich says the "HotSeat 275 " is a two-seater that features a "Sony Slim PS 2 with controller, 8MB memory card, two Dolby 5.1 surround-sound speakers with a remote control and subwoofer unit, a copy of Grand Turismo 4 and two Logitech Driving Force Pro force-feedback wheels with pedals"--inhaling now--"PS2 mounting bracket, two swinging-away consoles and two cup holders." If all that still isn't enough, it can accommodate various media players and even more speaker systems for players ranging in height from 3 feet to 6-foot-6.

Something tells us that whoever buys this system will be toward the latter end of that scale, as it comes with a list price of $4,375. Compared with last season's Ford twin-simulator at $19,000, however, it's a bargain.
