    I have never been able to get comfortable for a good gaming session on my Xbox, I always end up on the floor leaning back on the chair rather than sitting on it. I don't know why I has just never felt right gaming on the sofa or chairs.
    I went around a friends couple of weeks ago and he had a giant bean bag that he uses for gaming - quite stylish too.
    So with my Xbox 360 preordered, HD ready TV now displaying in my lounge, it was time to get comfortable, Giant bean bag ordered and now waiting delivery, in a stylish blue colour that will hopefully go with the blue suite we have in the lounge :thumbsup:
    Anyone else have lower back pain issues from gaming on the floor!! :rolleyes:

    I use one of these or a lounge chair with ottoman depending on the level of sloth required! A bean bag is also a great option.

    I posted about these

    in the Furniture folder on this forum. Doesn't seem like many people have them to give impressions of what they're like though

    Have a mate who has five of those buddhabag things. I can confirm that they are indeed, more comfortable than heaven itself.

    Those buddhabag things look like the same thing as a lovesac. They have memory foam in them instead of beads and they are the most comfortable thing you will ever veg. out on :D
    Much better than a bean bag in my opinion :smashin:

    Tried these out the other day in John Lewis and they seemed quite comfortable, although I can't really sit on these but lay back on them with my feet out. How are you finding them after long use?

    Well guys, it seems there are a plethora *my impressive word for today* of beanbags out there eh?? But for gaming dont you want a backrest? i.e. one that will give you suppport when you are killing your opposition, driving a car, kicking a goal etc. otherwise your back and neck is going to be killing you by the end of a big session..

    try the 'Cargo' bean bag from this company. http://www.ambientlounge.co.uk/cargo_bean_bag.htm

    I've got to admit, one of my mates runs this company ...so i could be biased ... but they are **** hot!

    reminds me of the three amigos:

    Jefe: We have many beautiful pinatas for your birthday celebration, each one filled with little surprises!
    El Guapo: How many pinatas?
    Jefe: Many pinatas, many!
    El Guapo: Jefe, would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?
    Jefe: A what?
    El Guapo: A *plethora*.
    Jefe: Oh yes, El Guapo. You have a plethora.
    El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
    Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
    El Guapo: Well, you just told me that I had a plethora, and I would just like to know if you know what it means to have a plethora. I would not like to think that someone would tell someone else he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
    Jefe: El Guapo, I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education, but could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?

    You dont want beans, you want foam! I've got a couple of fatsacs (fatsac.co.uk) originally for my home cinema but for gaming they're unbelievable.
    Totally supportive & made in sunny cornwall. The bean bag is gonna be history once these things get out.

    alfromscotland, which fatsac did you buy and how did you find it for comfort.

    I'm waiting for a couple to arrive and can already feel the "buyer's remorse" :)

    Check you PMs but it is by far the most comfortable thing i have ever sat on!!

    i went for the 'big' sac (5ft diameter) and the only buyers remorse i have is not getting the 8ft one!!

    Thanks Al,

    Got mine a few days ago. Totally agree, they are extreamly comfortable. Could vegitate in front of the playstation for hours on one of these :thumbsup:
    Really nice quality as well, though they should be for the money.
    The "big" sacs are huge ... can't imagine how much space the largest ones take up.
