No, it means your posture is wrong and you've injured yourself. Historically this was called RSI, no idea what they call it these days.

No, this is NOT normal! The usual symptoms for console gaming in excess of 1 hour are anal fissures and nipple rash, if you're getting pain in the shoulder you should go and see a GP IMMEDIATELY, it could be serious!

Of course it's not normal, you dolt.

Where exactly in your shoulder? Is it an ache or a sharp pain? Does it happen when you move the shoulder or after it's been stationary/held in place for the full hour?

Could be referred pain for a kink in your neck.

See a doctor or a physiotherapist before it gets worse. Don't game for more than 30-45 minutes at a time until you do.

Then go buy a better seat/couch or learn to game standing up (my home PC is at a standing desk). smile.gif
