Playseat® Evolution Black
About this deal
It's perfect for longer gaming sessions, particularly those long races on Forza, keeping you upright and comfortable the whole time. Again its unfortunate its not in as standard but its presumably left as an optional extra to keep the basic cost down for those without a gear shift. The Mat does get dented by the PlaySeat over time and is not the easiest to hoover but it has a good underneath grip for smooth surfaces and sits fine on carpets too.
The steering wheel column, surprisingly, at close to maximum extended settings, did not cause any stability issues with the wheel mounted – even with the strong force feedback created by the Logitech Driving Force GT. If you're a serious Forza fan looking to get the most from your virtual racing you'll be grabbing your wheel and strapping into the Playseat Evolution Forza Motorsport edition. There’s nothing much more to say other than it does exactly what it should and it is a must for anyone with a separate shift stick.It also makes wearing a headset less important, since the built-in speakers provide some serious immersion.
If you really want to take your experience to the next level, you have to be comfortable, and you can be in Playseat's ultimate Forza-fan chair, the Evolution. If you're looking for something to up your racing game but want to keep the spending a little tighter, then Playseat also has the Challenge. As for the chassis, once you assemble the two side plates to create the chassis, the frame parts slot in together and tighten with hand screws at 3 points, the base just underneath the chair, the footplates and at the steering wheel column.
Forza Motorsport is one of those racing games that's accessible to all, with casual players and more serious sim racers getting enjoyment from it. The chair is modeled on the sort of thing you might find in actual racing cars, with an integrated pedal platform, steering wheel stand, and support for adjusting both recline and height. Microsoft's Forza Motorsport franchise is one of the best virtual racers around, and for the last couple of years hasn't even been limited to just the console.
