SYDNEY, Australia - October 7th, 2009 - Expanding its line of premium music game controllers to Guitar Hero® gamers across all major games consoles, Logitech today introduced the Logitech® Wireless Guitar Controller and the Logitech® Wireless Drum Controller for PLAYSTATION®3, Xbox 360® and Wii™ . Licensed by Activision Publishing, Inc. all controllers feature the high-quality materials that you’d expect to see in real guitars and drums, and are designed to let you take advantage of all the latest features of Guitar Hero games including Guitar Hero® 5 and the soon-to-be released Band Hero™.
“Logitech’s premium guitar and drum controllers have made it easier for Guitar Hero gamers to get into the music and rock out in style,” said Nick Angelucci, product and marketing manager for Logitech Australia. These days, you don’t have to be restricted by the type of gaming console you own, whether you’ve got Wii™, PLAYSTATION®3 or Xbox 360®, Logitech will make sure you’ve got the right gear to match your level of commitment to the game and to maximise your gaming experience.”
Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller features a maple neck, one-piece contoured wood body, rosewood fingerboard, glossy-black pick guard and metal frets. The noise dampening design of the strum bar and fret buttons minimises audio distraction, and lets you focus in on the music. The guitar controller also incorporates a touch-sensitive slider on the fret board (located on the neck) to help you rack up the points by tapping notes.
Designed to match its console counterpart, the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii™ presents a dazzling white finish, the PLAYSTATION®3 controller boasts a sleek black facade and Xbox 360® shows off a sexy orange and white exterior.
Logitech Wireless Drum Controller
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller features three fully adjustable drum pads and two cymbal pads. Each piece can be positioned to fit your reach and suit your style – and the quiet and responsive drum pads deliver a lively feel that won’t distract you from the music. For better gameplay, the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller uses a recessed-rim design that helps make it easier to score points and avoid accidental rim shots. The kick pedal uses a stainless steel surface and an adjustable spring – providing a highly durable, responsive drumming experience.
When you’re ready to play, the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller sets up quickly and folds flat in seconds. You can start playing within minutes of opening the box and when the show is over, the set can be easily stowed away.
Both the Guitar Controllers and Drum Controllers are licensed for Wii™, Xbox 360® and Playstation®3 so setup is a cinch. (Wii Remote™ will snap into the controllers, and both products feature an analog stick for navigating menus).
