The gaming industry has seen tremendous growth in recent years. Even the movie industry looks pale in comparison. Traditionally, we’ve seen games being developed after movies. Current market trends have many movie makers developing adaptations of video games knowing they will be a sure-fire hit at the box office. But why are we seeing such trends? One can point towards the evolution of the television and the increased demand for quality home entertainment furniture.
Television has seen one of the greatest advances in technology in recent years. High-definition television and Plasma TV’s have the technologically-savvy drooling. And it’s because of the advent of these that many furniture manufacturers are taking the initiative to make the home entertainment system something to behold. For many of us, there is no better feeling than seeing in perfect detail, the game-winning overtime goal during the Stanley Cup Finals, or watching the walk-off home run during the World Series.
Proving to be one of the most advantageous from the advent of High-Def and Plasma TV’s is the gaming industry. In recent years, we’ve seen the birth of such next-generation gaming systems such as the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii. These systems have taken the world by storm, with over three quarters of the homes throughout North America, Europe, and Asia owning at least one of the three aforementioned systems. And is it any wonder why these systems are the “Must-haves” for any teen or young adult? Not really when you think about it. For many gamers, for years they’ve wanted to see their games come to life, and with the engines these systems are equipped with, the graphics are so realistic that it may be as close to real life as they’ll ever get. Or perhaps they’ve wanted to be part of the game, acting as the main hero in the story, or actually driving the car. Enter the Nintendo Wii – a system that uses a remote control as a peripheral device that acts as your own personal sword, steering wheel, golf club, etc etc.
So what does this mean for the state of the home entertainment system? A tremendous leap in demand for high-quality entertainment centers, big-screen units, and/or other home theater furniture.
Keeping up with this demand, many furniture manufacturers are producing home entertainment centers as their top line of product, as they too want to be part of the home entertainment phenomenon. In today’s marketplace, it is not uncommon to see several big screen and corner units, entertainment armoires, TV stands and cabinets, and other home theater furniture from your local retailer or online store.
We are now left with the evolution of gaming, combined with top-of-the-line entertainment furniture. What does that make? Home entertainment for the 21st century. A state where our lives are being fulfilled by unbelievable clarity in the games we play and the movies we watch and undeniable fun when entertaining our guests.
The evolution of the television has indeed forever changed the outlook on modern day home entertainment. With it, we are once again seeing our living rooms as a haven where fun and entertainment lives. High definition and plasma televisions, next generation gaming, and quality home entertainment centers are the future of home theater. This is home entertainment for the 21st century!
