Hey I just picked up the x rocker video game chair at walmart for 40.00.

I got it mainly for ds and psp and I must say lumines ROCKS with this chair.

However the headphone to audio jack adapter doesn't fit the ds very well so you may want to pick up a different one at a radio shack or something.

Which Walmart was this at? I was just at the Sacramento, CA one and it was still 99 bucks.

Burlington Iowa I guess it might not be chainwide. I know they had a ton of them and they just went on clearance here so maybe give it a week.

Yeah, they're still $70 at my store... but we have over 80 left in stock, so I expect them to go down again.

$40 is a great deal on these though...

Personally, if it's the chair that I remember, I hated the thing. It wasn't very comfortable and one of the times it flipped me over backwards. If you like the chair though, $40 is a good price for it.

$70 at my local Wal-Marts a few days ago...It looks decent, with built-in speakers and headphone jacks. $40 IS a great price though.

So you don't want to give me credit for even mentioning this deal in the other forum? :)

Where is this chair located in the store??? I was there today and could not find it. I checked electronics and near the games, but no go. It could just be sold out already.

I'm going to have to pass by my Walmart and see if it's the same price. Looks pretty good even if I'm going to be basically playing on the floor.

Sorry Charliee I just checked the other forum and you were the one who posted first but I did see it for that price before then. But credits all yours if you want it. :applause:

Just called my local walmart and they said it was still at $70. I'll keep my eye on this one.
Let me show you them.

It's $70 at my Wal-Mart. I've been keeping an eye on them for awhile now. We have 11 on hand and 12 being shipped to us and these things are not selling at all. So I'm thinking these will be marked down soon.

Just checked and it's $70. The way that Walmart marks down their merchandise, I wouldn't be surprised if it took about another year or so before it got to the $40 that the OP mentioned.

It's too bad that it's not $40.00 everywhere cause for that price it really is pretty cool.

Also I played a few games and watched Batman Begins ( a good 3 hours total) and never got cramped or uncomfortable.

I believe they were $50-60 at the Wal-Mart closest to me in Indy last time I checked. They had about 50 of them though, so it wouldn't surprise me to see them clearanced further.

Hey deadlite, how is the subwoofer on the chair? It's the main reason I'm interested in buying one at $40. I think it'll be a cool addition to my home theater surround for playing games and watching movies.

the subs not bad for handhelds and whatnot, but I don't think it would be all that much of an upgrade for your home theaters powered subwoofer. Unless your looking to enhance your experiance by "feeling" the rumble directly on your back.

Yes I'm sure it is right. Most boom box type radios only have 3 watt speakers in them. You can make cheap speakers that sound ok on low power. It's when you what really good sound that speakers are made that require more power.

As a heads up -- in my Wal-Mart Supercenter (Starkville, MS) they have a large stack of the rocker chairs at the front of the store, by the farthest right checkout counter (the highest numbered one). Ours were $50 IIRC. Between that, the $250 DVD recorder marked down to $80, Donkey Konga Jungle Beat w/ Bongos for $20, and a 160GB Seagate HDD for $50 (5 year warranty on it) -- it's the first good clearance deals I've seen at our Wal-Mart in ages.
