Performance Designed Products Customizing Controllers For Disney Titles

by Rainier on June 22, 2010 @ 4:00 a.m. PDT

Performance Designed Products has collaborated with Disney Consumer Products to create unique game controllers for Disney Epic Mickey and TRON: Evolution

PDP is releasing TRON controllers for the Nintendo Wii, PS3 and X360, as well as a special secondary Wii controller and charging system for the Wii remote for Disney Epic Mickey. The controllers and Wii charging system will be available to consumers at the launch of the respective games.

Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery.  As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world with lands inspired by Disney’s animated films and theme parks, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and determine Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero. To commemorateMickey’s debut on Wii console, PDP and DCP are bringing to market two very special items to complement the game: a Paintbrush controller and a Wii remote charging system. The Disney Epic Mickey Wii secondary controller is designed to resemble the magical paintbrush that Mickey wields in the game world, complete with wood-grained texture and soft, safe foam tip. The Disney Epic Mickey Wii remote charging system is something no Disney collector should be without. The charging system features a removable, light-up Mickey Mouse battling his nemesis, the Phantom Blot, and comes with rechargeable batteries for a Wii remote.

The official TRON controllers from PDP are multiplatform, bringing the look and feel of the TRON universe directly to the hands of gamers. Based on the designs of both the film and game, the TRON controllers will feature unique, performance-enhancing contours and design, rubber grips with a soft-touch finish and perforated details and light-up accents reminiscent of the TRON universe to illuminate late-night gaming sessions.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers are corded controllers with precision parts and vibration support, while the Wii controller is wireless. All three controllers carry and MSRP of $49.99 and will be available this fall in time for the release of TRON: Evolution -The Video Game.
