Expanding its line of premium music game
controllers to Guitar Hero gamers on Wii, Logitech today introduced the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii and the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Wii.
Licensed by Activision Publishing, Inc. , both 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 with
even more realism,” said Ruben Mookerjee,
Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “Now if you love
to rock out on Wii, you’ve got the gear to match your level of
commitment to the game.”
Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii features a maple neck,
rosewood fingerboard and metal frets. So you’ll look good while you
shred, the new Wireless Guitar Controller presents a dazzling white
finish with a glossy-black pick guard on a one-piece contoured wood
The noise dampening design of the strum bar and
fret buttons minimizes 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.
Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Wii
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Wii 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 Controller and Drum Controller are licensed for Wii so
setup is a cinch – your Wii Remote™ snaps into the controllers, and
both products feature an analog stick for navigating menus.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii and the Logitech
Wireless Drum Controller for Wii are expected to be available in the
U.S. and Europe in October for a retail price of $199.99 (U.S.) and
$229.99 (U.S.) respectively.
