Put Your Butt On This! [Sumo Lounge Gamer Review]
Not long ago, I had the the chance to review unlikely gaming accessory the Selk'Bag, a wearable sleeping bag suit. Now I've had the chance to check out the Sumo Lounge Gamer, a giant beanbag chair. You might think these sound like random selections for a video game site, but we're all about anything that improves the gaming experience, be it clothing or furniture.
And trust us, you'll want to plop your booty down on this.
As you can see in the image above, the Sumo Gamer is relatively inexpensive considering how large it is. How large? Approximately 42" by 42" by 34". If you're like me, those measurements mean nothing, so think about it this way: it's about as large as a short yet overstuffed lounge chair. Yes, it's a legitimate piece of furniture.
And how comfortable is it? Very. Our brown microsuede Sumo Gamer feels like sitting on a giant marshmallow. It's ridiculously soft and truly hard to get out of. Despite the name, I think I actually prefer the Sumo Gamer for watching movies, as I find myself inevitably sinking into a prone position whenever I sit in it. That may or may not be a problem for you. I don't personally consider spine-melting comfort to be a problem.
If you're looking for a slightly more firm beanbag, Sumo also has you covered: the smaller Sumo Lounge Omni (which we included in our holiday gift guide last year) is a bit stiffer and easier to sit upright on. And at $139 bucks, it's a steal. Regardless of which Sumo Lounge bag you choose, we think you'll find it to be very worthy of being called a real gaming accessory.

The Omni Reloaded isn't a bean bag -- instead, it's a polyurethane chair/backrest. It takes up a lot less room than Sumo's normal products, as you can scrunch it up and store it upright in a closet, or with the included travel bag. "Scrunching" as I call it is the name of the game, as you can pretty much contort this thing into any form you want. Continue reading →
I love my Lazy Boy couch and my double recliner, but most furniture items want you to adapt to them instead of the other way around. You can’t easily move a recliner around your home from room to room or fold it up and shove it under the bed when you don’t need it. But with the new Sumo Omni Reloaded from Sumo Lounge you can do exactly that. Continue reading →
Once again, Sumo comes through with the powerfully-named Omni Reloaded, a new kind of lounge chair for the company, whose bean bag chairs can be found throughout the Zimbio headquarters. Continue reading →
