    Well guys I would like to hear some good suggestions for comfortably PC gaming from the couch. I have searched this forum and others and I can't believe that in 2014 there is still not a good way of doing this.

    So please whether your suggestion is an Xbox controller, flat portable table top, or you have pictures of a custom design.... Shoot over your suggestions. Because PC gaming comfortably from the couch is on my new years resolution list. I will find away to do it this year.

    Thanks.

    I have my Monitor and tower on a nice Gplan teak and walnut desk, and a table with my keyboard and mouse on in front of the couch, works for me, fine if i am using the xbox pad too.

    Dunno if it's just me, but that looks a bit overkill, tad cumbersome too.

    They are fairly new, released just a few months ago. I did not check pricing but I know their cases demand top dollar.:)

    tigger, I sort of agree, but it is also plenty of room to get it done where most lap-desk designs are much smaller and don't have room IMHO.

    Yeah I checked the pricing and they are pricey.... Just under $200 ($179) w\o extras which could include keyboard ,mouse , headset ,etc....

    Yeah you would have to have the room. Good news is I do. But if there are smaller other options out there I am interested to see them.

    It doesn't look like it yet but has the steam controller come out yet?

    i bought a reclining chair and have a 46" monitor. flat table top required, cordless mouse required - corded keyboard possible.

    i use a large desk, but nothing is stopping anyone from watching TV/movies etc on this TV past a keyboard and mouse.
