SimXperience Upgrades G-Force Simulator Seat for Esports 

SimXperience has launched the GS-5 G-Seat, a G-force simulator seat designed primarily for racing esports and flight simulators that offers a number of refinements over its predecessor, the GS-4.

The new GS-5 offers sustained omnidirectional motion feedback (up/down, side/side, forward/reverse). According to the company: "The G-Seat also includes a free copy of the SimXperience Commander Software, allowing the racing simulator to provide physics based tactile feedback (SimVibe), virtual dashboard features, virtual button box features, and the highly customizable SimXperience "Sim Setup" Buttons for organizing and launching simulation titles. The SimXperience 6DOF G-Seat is fully integrated with and controlled by the SimXperience Sim Commander software offering excellent tunability of motion settings as well as support for a wide variety of simulation titles."

The GS-5 is USB plug-and-play compatible with a number of titles and is also compatible with AccuForce Direct Drive Steering Systems, Stage Series Motion Simulator Systems and Buttkicker Mini LFE SE.

The GS-5 is available now for a suggested retail price of $2,999. Further details can be found at simxperience.com.
