Not all game cockpits cost $300,000

This setup isn't even $1,000, but the features are limited, of course

After all the ridiculously over-the-top gaming simulators we've seen lately, it's nice to know that some manufacturers are making some setups that are more affordable (if $700 qualifies, anyway).

The "Hotseat Racer GTX" from Hotseat Chassis isn't a full-scale system but does include surround-sound speakers, as well as built-in steering wheel and pedals, according to I4U News. The stand is sold separately, but the cockpit is still costs a lot less than the thousands you'd spend for simulators from Costco or Ford , not to mention the $300,000 monster from FAO Schwarz .

But if the Racer GTX is still too pricey, you can always go for something like the " Rally Chair " and just pretend. After all, none of this is real, remember?
