In the last decade, there was a time where just about everything that didn’t need it was embellished with Swarovski crystals. It looks like we’ve gone back to that point in time. Because there is now a gaming chair, called the Vertagear PL4500 Swarovski, which has a name that says it all.
But for something with Swarovski in its name, this special edition Vertagear PL4500 doesn’t have that much bling on it. All you get are some where the Vertagear logo is, and the diamond shaped bits where the stitching meet. Which would mean that it would be less comfortable to sit on for extended periods of time.
Beyond that, this Swarovski edition looks to be the mostly the same as the standard Vertagear PL4500. Which is still a strange thing to get the bling treatment.
Most things that we’ve seen that have gotten a layer of crystals before looked like things that would appeal to those who like crystals anyway, like phone cases or power banks. A gaming chair looks inherently like something that a person who likes Swarovski stuff would not buy. In fact, it’s probably safe to say that interest in Swarovski crystals and gaming chairs are mutually exclusive.
But for those who are into both Swarovski crystals and gaming chairs, this edition of the Vertagear PL4500 comes at a premium. It costs US$599.99 (~RM2519), which is US$110 more than the standard version.
