Logitech has announced the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller, Premiere Edition for the PS2/PS3 versions of the "Guitar Hero" - enabling gamers to play like a rock star.
The premiere edition of Guitar Controller features authentic materials including a wood neck, a rosewood fingerboard and metal frets. Logitech’s design also offers the one-piece contoured shape preferred by many of the world’s leading rock guitarists.
To minimize button noise, Logitech uses rubber dome technology on the fret board controls. The guitar controller also incorporates a New Touch-Sensitive Neck Slider, located so strumming is not always necessary to rack up the points. Additionally, the Neck Slider can be used in Guitar Hero World Tour’s new Music Studio to create an even wider away of sounds.
“There’s no better feeling than being the guy with the best instrument when you walk into your friend’s house to jam on Guitar Hero,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “We designed this guitar for that experience.”
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology to provide a range of up to 30 feet from the console. Just plug the USB receiver into the console and you’re ready to rock. The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller, Premiere Edition is expected to be available in the U.S. in December for $250.
