Our number two item on our top ten gift list is the ultimate in racer-escapeism. Say you have Forza Motorsport 4 and the Fanatec CSR Forza 4 wheel, even though both those items are cool together if you want the ultimate trifecta you need the Forza Mototsport 4 Edition REVO Playseatto complete the experience. There are a lot of racing sim seats out there but Playseat is always at the top of the list due to their construction, limited editions, and ease of use. The Forza Motorsport 4 Edition Playseat is extra nice because they have relocated the steering wheel post to come up from underneath the seat providing better leg room for heel-toe-ing and for more customization they include an adjustable pedal plate so you can set your pedals to the perfect angle for your feet. When you are all done racing the seat folds up and retracts for easy storage. We have had the Forza Motorsport 3 Edition seat for a while and we are getting acquainted with the new Forza Motorsport 4 seat and so far we can tell you that things are going well enough that we would definitely recommend it as a potential gift this season. Although you may need to put in rush shipping to get it by Christmas! By the way stay tuned to MotorworldHype for more on the Forza Motorsport 4 playseat as a full review and unboxing video is coming up soon!
Every year when we go to E3 we search the show floor for cool games and gadgets that gear heads would love.

To help go over all the changes on the new seat we had Trevor from Playseat America walk us through it. Just scroll down for pics and Trevor’s walkthrough of the Forza Motorsport 4 edition Playseat.
DiRT3 is coming out next month and I know more than a few people who are going ape crazy over it and chomping at the bit to get their hands on the game. If you are one of the DiRT franchise super fanatics out there then you will probably dig the new DiRT3 edition “Revolution” simulator seat by Playseat USA. Playseat took the popular Revolution model seat and gave it an awesome DiRT3 livery scheme. If I didn’t already have the Forza edition seat I would totally pick this one up! Look for the DiRT3 edition Playseat to hit the online store this July.
