Logitech releases new Xbox controllers

Logitech, a market leader in gaming controllers for PCs and consoles, today announced that Xbox gamers can now step up the action with two new quality controllers. Announced earlier this year at the E3 trade show in Los Angeles, the Logitech Precision(tm) Controller and Logitech Thunderpad are now available online at and retail outlets in the U.S. for U.S. $24.99 and U.S. $19.99, respectively. European prices and availability will be announced separately. Logitech Precision Controller: Surprisingly Precise The Logitech Precision Controller offers gamers a high-end experience at an affordable price point. Its design reflects the eye-catching look of the company’s top-selling 2.4GHz Xbox-compatible cordless controller. Soft, form-fitting rubber grips provide comfort for typical marathon gaming sessions, while two proportional analog thumbsticks ensure a textbook accuracy for 360-degrees of control. Two powerful tandem vibration motors bring the gamepad to life, enabling gamers to feel every bump, bruise and bashing. The Logitech Precision Controller is equipped with eight easy-to-use analog buttons arranged in a familiar controller layout, plus an eight-way D-pad and two triggers. It includes an extra-long cable for greater mobility. Interface is via a standard controller-port. Logitech ThunderPad: Now With Turbo/AutoFire The Logitech ThunderPad for Xbox has a completely new shape and a distinguishing feature: Turbo/AutoFire. Like fighter pilots with a round of ammunition ready to fire off a barrage of bullets, gamers armed with Turbo/AutoFire can fire any action button automatically without having to press the button repeatedly. Not only does this function, with its four pre-programmed speeds, help to eliminate tired fingers — it provides such an impressive rate of firing power that the competition is left running for cover. Eight easy-to-use analog action buttons, an eight-way D-pad and two triggers provide enough firepower to cripple any vicious villain. Like the Logitech Precision Controller, the Logitech ThunderPad features comfortable rubber grips, dual-analog thumbsticks and vibration feedback that sends a pulse into any game for even more action. "Our gaming engineers have spent many hours carefully designing and refining what we believe are the best Xbox controllers in their price range," said Fred Swan, Logitech’s director of marketing for Interactive Entertainment. "Both combine a luxury look and feel, with Logitech dependability and innovation, leaving gamers with the feeling that they are competing with the best controllers everywhere, every time."
