Renowned Electronics Retailer Brings Enthusiasts True 360-Degree Gaming Experience
Crutchfield, the nation’s largest direct integrated marketer of consumer electronics products, today announced it has added console games to its portfolio of cutting-edge products — bringing gamers not only the game boxes and gaming titles, but the surround sound, HDTVs and everything else needed to enjoy an engrossing gaming experience.
Crutchfield has long provided its customers with the best in audio/video and home entertainment system technology, including televisions, speakers, and surround sound options. As video games have rapidly become an integral part of today’s complete home entertainment systems, offering an HD picture and compelling surround sound, their addition comes as a natural extension to the Crutchfield product lineup.
“Until now, people had plenty of places to buy gaming gear – but a harder time taking advantage of the high-def picture and surround sound that today’s systems offer,” said Scott Anderson, Manager of Home Video and TV for Crutchfield. “Now that Crutchfield’s added consoles, games, and accessories to our selection, gamers can get everything they need in one place — and even more important, our experts can help them get that intense 360-degree gaming experience, by helping them hook up their game systems for HD and surround sound.”
Although gaming related topics have been some of the most popular search requests on Crutchfield.com for some time, Crutchfield elected to offer gaming products only after its full customer support staff was thoroughly trained on all products and accessories. “Many of our customer advisors are active gamers, but we wanted to make sure all gaming customers would get the full Crutchfield support experience,” added Anderson.
Crutchfield now carries the leading gaming platforms, including the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and others — and will offer a wide selection of today’s most popular game titles. As always, products purchased from Crutchfield are supported by Crutchfield’s award-winning, industry-leading customer support team and comprehensive toll-free lifetime technical support.
