We’ve previously reviewed two beanbag chair models from Sumo Lounge International: the Sultan and the Sway. They’ve now released a model called the Gamer, but there’s a bit of irony in that name; the Gamer—although a great product that can change your opinion of what a beanbag chair is—is not Sumo’s best option for gamers.
If you are looking for a comfy, over sized beanbag gaming chair for your home, check out Sumo’s Sway line.
Atlantic Inc. is working on an all new item for its Game Storage Collection of products that are designed to make it easier to keep everything organized in your living rooms and it just so happens to be appearing at CES 2011.

Many of you have already noticed that Home has a brand new look to it this week following the recent 1.35 update. The way a player logs into home now has been changed. Connection to the PlayStation Network now happens automatically without having to go through messages to log on and then taken to the navigation screen. The navigator screen displays favorite places, recommended spaces, personal spaces, location of friends if they’re on and of course an exploration map that is now broken down by spaces already visited or by the game’s category (i.e., sports, action, adventure, etc.). Players are no longer trapped at the last location they visited, especially if that space was dragging and keeping them from exiting the space. You can move around the world of HOME literally at the click of the button quickly. Here’s a partial list of features to expect…
