If you feel the same like I do, you have probably ordered your PS5 console and are thinking about all the accessories around it. One of the most important decisions at this point is to choose a quality PS5 gaming chair.
Today, I am listing the best gaming chairs for PS5 console players. Here are all the best gaming chair for PS5 you can buy :
- Autofull Mechanical Master Console Chair With Footrest & Adjustable Armrests
- X Rocker Pro Series Pedestal Gaming Chair (51396)
- BraZen Panther Elite 2.1 Bluetooth/Surround Gaming Chair
- Respawn 110 Gaming Chair With Footrest
- Best Choice Gaming Floor Chair
But before we dive into the list itself, here are some of the things I think are very important when choosing a PlayStation5 gaming chair:
- Comfy and versatile: First in the list of features you’ll want to see in your PS5 gaming chair are versatility and comfort. Unlike PC gaming chairs, your console gaming chair needs to be adjustable, so that you can take it to the next level, whether you want to recline and lie down, put your legs on another surface, or simply find your ideal position.
- Seating options: Unlike PC gaming chairs which offer a single seating option which is the desk, console gaming chairs are different. You can choose to sit on the floor with a rocker gaming chair, or choose a chair positioned in a similar way as a standard PC chair. There are also comfortable options for keeping all of your muscles relaxed, just like sitting on your sofa. Below, you will notice that we are including all of these options in our list.
- Materials: Some gamers prefer the smell and look of leather, while others are more comfortable with mesh materials that promote breathability. Any way you see it, you should find a material that works for you and prevents sweating.
- Accessories: There are many PS5 gaming chairs that come with extra accessories such as speakers, USB ports, vibrations, or adjustable armrests so that you are more comfortable with your controller. So, you should take these into account as well.
- Price: Expensive doesn’t always mean the best. Take into account what you actually need from your PS5 gaming chair, and how the options available on the market meet your needs.
Now that you are introduced to some of the top features you should look out for, let’s start reviewing the best console PS5 gaming chairs.

This is one of the best selling gaming chairs for console gamers, but also a very interesting model to consider. Even though it has the design of a standard PC gaming chair, it comes with a retractable footrest and probably one of the cheapest price tags on the market.
The only drawback is that you might not be comfortable sitting in this chair for long hours. That is why most recommend it for light daily use, as a cheap alternative of any high-tech gaming chair.
Still, the Respawn 110 is a chair that delivers many great features and comes with a heavy metal frame, and high density foam padding. There are neck and lumbar cushions which give this chair advantage over the other reasonably priced competitors.

If your budget is not big and you want a comfortable and quite simple gaming chair for your PS5, this is the option for you. Priced at only $89, this is one of the cheapest popular options on the market.
Available in grey/black, red/black and blue/black and two other colors, the Best Choice Gaming Floor chair is among the top selling products on Amazon. In reality, people are attracted to it because of the price and its unique positioning.
Unlike PC gaming chairs which come with casters, this one is “glued” to the ground with a wide support base. As such, it is perfect for children who want to sit on the ground while playing PS5, or people who don’t want a lot from their gaming chair.
You can swivel the chair in 360 degrees and despite the lack of rocking function, the chair is comfortable and reclines – but not to the ground. Its maximum weight capacity is 300 pounds, making it sturdy and good for heavier users, too.

There is also an adjustable backrest into various positions, which is the only hi-tech feature found in this chair. However, it is great for a simple living room seating option.
