Logitech today announced that its two newly designed corded controllers for the PlayStation2 are now on retail shelves, ready for prime-time action. The Logitech Extreme Action Controller and the Logitech Action Controller (U.S. suggested retail price of $24.95 and $19.95, respectively) are available at retail outlets and at European pricing and availability will be announced separately.

"Logitech is committed to delivering the best-possible gaming experience at all price points," said Fred Swan, director of marketing for Logitech’s Interactive Entertainment Business Unit. "These new corded controllers continue to exemplify that commitment. Whether it’s soft, leather grips instead of plastic, or an extra long cable for added convenience, we always try to go beyond basic needs to create a controller that will be a pleasure to own and use."

Logitech Extreme Action Controller

The Logitech Extreme Action Controller is the luxury and performance controller for discerning gamers who aren’t satisfied by victory alone. It combines high-end features such as genuine leather grips and a lustrous metallic finish with components designed for optimum performance, such as gold-plated connector pins, precise rubber-capped analog sticks, a crisply accurate D-pad and responsive triggers.

The controller includes a useful turbo mode that makes fast work of tough enemies. Its vibration feedback gives gamers a feel for the action, as the device reacts to each bump and bruise felt in the game. A complete set of standard buttons is provided in a familiar and comfortable layout. For added convenience and freedom, Logitech has included an extra long 9-foot 5-in. cord.

The Logitech Action Controller is a sporty, aggressive controller that begs to be played hard. Specially designed rubber grips provide comfort and a secure hold on the action while channels in the rubber reduce perspiration. The tough plastic finish looks great, easily handles wear and tear, and is easy to clean.

The Logitech Action Controller features a 7-foot cord with a standard connector. It includes the same dual-vibration feedback, turbo mode, analog sticks, D-pad, triggers, and action buttons as the Logitech Extreme Action Controller. Gamers looking for a rugged performer will find the Logitech Action Controller an attractive buy.

Both controllers connect to the standard controller port and are compatible with games for PS one(tm), PlayStation and PlayStation 2.
