On 21st May Microsoft announced the Xbox One as the latest console development from its games division. Further, more in depth announcements concerning the technical specifications and available games are expected at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles when it begins on the 11th June.

The announcement of the new console, as well as Sony’s February reveal of the Playstation 4, is destined to have far reaching consequences for the electronics industry. Sales of high-definition televisions have been steadily increasing for the past five years, with an estimated 30 million HDTVs now in Britain’s homes. As the new consoles seek to synergise the gaming experience with a televisual and cinematic one, this integration will undoubtedly only further the strength of the market.

Likely to be affected is the television bracket industry, which has seen a parallel rise in sales alongside the HDTV market. With the growing trend for consumers to mount their televisions on the wall, coupled with Microsoft’s updated Kinect software in the Xbox One (allowing users to control their TV and gaming experience by moving around the room), the relocation of television to the wall has created a new focal point for the home.

Tom Beckett, spokesperson for TV brackets company Brackets R US, has already seen a noticeable rise in sales over the past year, and predicts that trend will increase exponentially as the release of both consoles draws closer. ‘The changing nature of the TV experience has seen the way we consume television and home media continually evolve. The rise of interactive services has made television much more of a two-way experience, and the advent of the Xbox One and Playstation 4 will undoubtedly herald a new way of not only consuming, but interacting with our televisions. Here at Brackets R Us, we anticipate strong sales in the third and fourth quarter in conjunction with the release of these consoles. The upgraded interactivity of both machines will liberate the television from the corner of the room, as consumers continue to mount their sets on the wall for the optimum gaming and interactive experience.’

Brackets R Us is a speciality trader of television brackets and other television accessories, offering up to 70% off the recommended retail price of television brackets, with free next day delivery.
