CE Pro 100 Names Top Gaming System Brands

Overtaking longtime category leader Sony, Microsoft garners the top spot in the category of Gaming Systems.


CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.

In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.

Overtaking longtime category leader Sony, Microsoft garners the top spot. The Xbox maker rolled out aggressive pricing during the 2016 holiday season, perhaps aiding its push.

Looking ahead to next year it will be interesting to see if Nintendo’s hot new Switch system bolsters its standing.
