Experience 4K football fields and race-tracks from the comfort of your personal geek haven.
Foosball and pool tables are done with. Now, video games rule, whether its on your favourite console or PC.
It’s every gamer’s dream to build a game room of their own – equipped with the best gadgets and furniture for the ultimate immersive experience. Besides being a personal haven, the well-designed game room is also a space you can share with friends or family, whether its at 4K football fields or race-tracks.
If you’re spoilt for choice (understandably so), we’ve got you. Here are 10 things you need to build that ultimate video game cave.
Samsung QLED TV
Ultra-HD imaging, superb audio, user-friendly hardware and interface are all gaming must-haves, and Samsung's 2018 QLED TVs have them all. Improved contrast with smart back-light (so you can game in the dark), anti-reflection tech (play from any angle), and enhanced immersion (need we say more?) are all guarantees, but there's also this neat trick - the TV mimics the pattern on the wall behind to create the illusion of seamless blending. Cable clutter is also a woe of the past thanks to an 'invisible connection' of up to 15 metres. Samsung's 2018 QLED range includes HW-N650 soundbar with Acoustic Beam Technology that places you right at the heart of action. New models are now in stores with attractive packages. W samsung.com
King Cloud III recliner sofa
Not only does this sofa find just the right position with electronic head, seat, and foot rests, it can also save and remember your preference. King Cloud III comes with reading light, smart swivel tables (simply leave your phone on the table to charge), and integrated Sonos speaker bracket. W kingliving.my
Sennheiser’s GSP 301 Gaming Headset
Superior bass and close, memory-foam fit makes this pair easy to wear for long gaming sessions. Noise-cancelling microphones complete the deal for ultimate immersion on PC, Mac, consoles, mobiles and tablets. W sennheiser.com
Now that you have a TV, you need a practical showcase for it. This timber Aspen Sideboard from King Living is a simple yet elegant option, with soft-close drawers to store your games. W kingliving.my
PlayStation 4 Pro
We're not going to tell you which console is best, of course, but as far as options go this is a pretty solid one to have. Dynamic 4K graphics and streaming, HDR support, and a 1TB storage ensures every game is a heightened adventure. W asia.playstation.com
Total immersion, utter escapism. That's what virtual reality gaming promises, putting the player in the centre of extraordinary new worlds with one (not so simple) gadget. LED tracking lights and motion sensors are used with the PlayStation Camera for real-time orientation. W asia.playstation.com

This isn't any old table - it's an arcade all by itself. Draw out the real arcade controls and enjoy your favourite retro games on the 32-inch LCD screen built into the table top.

iRobot Roomba 980
Look, we know cleaning is the least of your priorities - but someone's got to keep the game room habitable. Enter this nifty robotic vacuum cleaner, gliding around for up to two hours into the corners you would never clean yourself. Roomba captures up to 99% of unwanted particles on all floor types.
