Capitol Sales Company Adds "FUN" for Systems Integrators


Three Most Popular Gaming Systems Now Carried

DENVER, Sept. 6, 2007 - If you are going to play a video game, you'll want to use the largest TV screen possible for maximum impact; and in most cases that's found in the home's media room. More than 50 percent of the total television population in the United States accesses at least one video game console system in their home, and that number is expected to climb.* Gaming systems are quickly becoming an important component of home audio/visual systems and in some cases, they serve as multimedia hubs, delivering high -quality digital movies and IPTV throughout the home.
Until now, many systems integrators needed to drive to local big box retailers to purchase gaming consoles to install into their audio/visual systems. Now, Capitol Sales Company is stocking the three most popular games on the market -the Nintendo Wii™, Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PLAYSTATION®3 -making it easy for integrators to buy what they need without an extra stop at the local retail outlet.

"We're always looking for ways to simplify the lives of our system integrators," said Curt Hayes, President and CFO of Capitol Sales Company. "If Capitol Sales can provide everything they need for a job, it saves them time and money. That keeps everyone happy."
Between 2004 and 2006, the number of homes with video game consoles expanded by 18.5 percent, which is significant when compared to the fact that the total number of television households only rose 1.6 percent in the same period. Hayes sees the growth trend in the gaming systems industry continuing. "We expect to sell a significant number of gaming consoles in the months and years ahead. In fact, we believe that some integrators will purchase more than one system per job since many households want to expand their home entertainment system with more than one type of gaming system," said Hayes.
