For you Guitar Heroes out there, now you can really rock it with the new Logitech® Wireless Guitar Controller for PLAYSTATION3 and PlayStation2 computer entertainment systems. It even looks like a real guitar with a wood neck and body, a rosewood fingerboard and metal frets. (The guitar controller also incorporates a touch-sensitive slider, located on the neck of the guitar controller so you can rack up the points.)
Unlike the Premiere Edition (previously available only in select markets), the new black guitar controller is expected to be available worldwide later this month. The cool guitar was made expressly for the phenomenally successful Guitar Hero franchise.
We let one of their experts give us the scoop:
“Logitech’s new guitar controller delivers the same unparalleled Guitar Hero experience offered by our previous premiere edition to an even broader group of gamers and at a great value,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “Everything about the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller is premium – from the authentic wood material and flawless black finish, to the noise-dampening design of the strum bar and buttons, to the authentic accents provided by the metal frets.”
So you’ll be free to go where the music moves you, the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller lets you jam at a range of up to 30 feet from the console and offers hundreds of hours of battery life.
You can score it for $199.99 in the U.S. and will be available in Europe in June.
