New Reactor Game Chair to Debut to 50 Million Capcom® Gaming Enthusiasts

Capcom's support of the Reactor Game Chair gives us instantaneous credibility and worldwide exposure as must-have gamer gear for optimal play.

The Ultimate Game Chair™, maker of all-in-one virtual game, massage and home theatre chairs, today unveiled a Capcom-branded Reactor Video Game Chair. Ultimate Game Chair is the first and only game chair company to have a formal licensing agreement with Capcom® - a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games.

With eight high-impact vibrating motors and 3D-stereo sound, the Reactor delivers a full-body sensory experience that amplifies game play on Capcom's hottest titles "Street Fighter®," "Devil May Cry®," "Resident Evil®," and "MotoGP™," among others. The new Capcom Reactor game chair by Ultimate Game Chair will be available to Capcom's 50 million fans worldwide later this year when its most anticipated releases hit retail. The Capcom Reator Game Chair will be marketed via Capcom's in-game bundles and online marketing promotions for $179.99, plus shipping.

"For 20 years, Capcom's blockbuster franchises have been breaking records the world over with a devoted fan base," said Germaine Gioia, senior vice president of licensing for Capcom Entertainment. "It is a rare and exceptional occasion when we find a product like the Reactor Game Chair that can boost game play with full-impact body blows or subtle movements to enhance our triple-A titles."

"Capcom is an incomparable leader in game development - having created the most lasting franchises in game history," said Jamie Duran, president of Ultimate Game Chair. "Capcom's support of the Reactor Game Chair gives us instantaneous credibility and worldwide exposure as must-have gamer gear for optimal play."

The Capcom Reactor® Game Chair combines the best in game chair action at an optimal price. Key features include:

  • Game Play: Features eight vibrating motors that use Game Sync™ technology for high-impact game action. The motors are located in the upper and lower back, as well as the seat cushion so that every bump or blow is felt by the gamer. Plus, the Reactor features a variable massage mode that can be used when watching movies or listening to tunes. Last, the Reactor includes head-mounted, 3D-stereo sound for unmatched game immersion.
  • Connectivity: Use any wireless controller, steering wheel or mix-and-match favorite game accessories. Ultimate Game Chair wireless adapter is sold separately for $49.99 MSRP. For stealth game play, there are also headphone jacks so as not to disturb the other inhabitants in the household.
  • Compatibility: Play with any console, computer, hand-held game or home theater. The Reactor is compatible with Xbox 360®, Xbox®, PlayStation®, PlayStation®2 or PLAYSTATION®3, PSP®, Wii™, Nintendo GameCube™, Nintendo DS™, PCs and Mac® systems. Tune in with home theater systems and MP3 players like the iPod® or Zune® for a total media experience.
  • Design: The Reactor sports a stylish, streamlined design that sits off the ground for maximum comfort. Plus, it has a removable backrest for easy storage. The Capcom Reactor is all black with the Capcom color logo emblazoned on the headrest.

The Reactor is the latest introduction from Ultimate Game Chair, following the sell-out success of the Renegade Game Chair introduced during the 2007 holiday season. The Capcom Reactor, via the in-box bundle, will retail for $179.99, while the stand-alone, non-branded Reactor version will retail $199.99. Both products will be available at UltimateGameChair.com later this year when the newest games from Capcom are released.

As an official licensor of Capcom, Ultimate Game Chair's Reactor will be showcased at many of Capcom's top consumer and industry events, including E3 (7/14-17), Comic-Con (7/24-27), MotoGP '08 (9/7-11) and Best Buy's Digital Days (9/15-18), among others.
