So you can really rock out to Guitar Hero® on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today introduced the Logitech® Wireless Drum Controller for Xbox 360®. Licensed by Activision Publishing (NASDAQ:ATVI), Inc., this controller features high-quality materials, and is designed to let you perform at your best on Guitar Hero games including Guitar Hero® 5 and the soon-to-be released Band Hero.

“When you’re ready to upgrade your controllers or expand your band, you’ll want to rip on Logitech’s new drum controller,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “With the Wireless Drum Controller you can mark time, keep the backbeat, colour up your riffs and crash down on the cymbals. Made for Xbox 360, the new Wireless Drum Controller can let you rock out to all your favourite songs.”

Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Xbox 360
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Xbox 360 features three fully adjustable drum heads and two cymbal pads. Each piece can be positioned to fit your reach and suit your style. Offering a realistic playing experience, the new Logitech Wireless Drum Controller provides quiet, responsive heads that deliver a lively feel, won’t distract you from the music, and are designed to let you take advantage of all the latest features of Guitar Hero games.

But Logitech has not just replicated typical drum heads. For better gameplay, the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller uses a recessed-rim design that makes it easier to score points and avoid accidental rim shots. So you can give it all you’ve got, the kick pedal uses a stainless steel surface and an adjustable spring – providing a highly durable, responsive drumming experience.

Delivering up to 50 hours of battery life on two AA batteries, the Wireless Drum Controller gives you enough juice to perform a concert’s worth of hits, encores included.

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. (Roadies are not required)

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Xbox 360 is expected to be available in the UAE in October for a retail price of AED 1,100 and the Wireless Guitar Controller will also be available through Logitech websites.
