First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
True to life racing in the comfort of your lounge room

Ever sat for ages adjusting your PlayStation steering wheel? Bolting it to your mum's new coffee table? Dropping it when violently turning a corner on the last lap in a desperate race to the finish line?
Well, the daily pain and suffering of racing freaks is now over - thanks to the Gamers Cockpit . Yes, you heard right, a fully steel, purpose built cockpit just for your PlayStation (or X-Box). Housing an Autotechnica sports seat, a Logitech steering wheel and pedals, a 2.1 sound system and a wide screen television, the cockpit is as close as you will come to realistic driving simulation - just without the wind blowing through your hair.
The unit we reviewed came in at a fairly hefty $2675 and that included the full list of features (television, steering wheel, speakers and console stand) except the console and game itself. Depending on what extras you want, that price can drop as low as $1199, and quite frankly we can't think of a better way to blow your hard-earned cash - just say goodbye to your social life.
