If you want a truly amazing gamesroom, then you have to kit it out to the max. With so many choices for gamesroom products it can be a difficult task to find which ones are right for you. But look no further, this is the essential guide to gamesroom products.

The Arcade Machine
Whether you like your stand-ups or your table-tops there are so many arcade machines out there to suit your needs. The best one to go for is one with multi-game capabilities and possibly with a PC inside to allow you to load your own games. There is also a PS3 compatible arcade machine, which allows you to load up your favourite PS3 games and play it with authentic arcade style joysticks and buttons.

High Definition Widescreen TV
The size of the TV will most likely depend on the size of the room. You may want to get one that is placed on your wall, so as not to take any of the floor space up. Make sure you get at least 1080p, and one of the latest super-flatscreen smart TVs, as they are generally hooked up to BBC iPlayer, Netflix, 4OD, ITV on-demand and pretty much any other streaming service via your internet connection. There are even some pretty nice Android OS TV's out there too. If you don't want to shell out the cash for a Smart TV then you can probably buy one of the TV Boxes like Apple TV or Google TV which turn pretty much any TV into a Smart TV.

Gaming Consoles
Kit out your room with the latest next-generation gaming consoles like the upcoming Sony PS4, Microsoft X-Box 720 or the Nintendo Wii U (the Wii U is actually out already). You can probably find a way to connect it up to your arcade machine or HDTV.

And you now have all the essentials for a complete gamesroom. Hope you enjoy your brand new gamesroom. And this is not an exhaustive list of what you can have, it's your personal space and you can have pretty much anything you want in it.
