Logitech Ships New Gamepad and Joysticks
6:50 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Logitech has begun shipping three new gaming peripherals that were announced at this years Electronic Entertainment Expo. The Attack 3 ($24.99), Extreme 3D Pro ($34.99), and Dual Action Gamepad ($19.99) are affordably priced, yet do not skimp on design or features. Here is a description of each product from Logitech's press release:

Logitech® Extreme 3D Pro: The Extreme 3D Pro blends useful features with a new eye-catching industrial design. For quick and easy access to the multiple commands of today´s games, the joystick has twelve conveniently placed action buttons. A comfortable twist handle ¯ nearly essential in many games ¯ acts as a rudder in flight simulation games and allows fast rotation in first-person games. The joystick features a rubberized 8-way hat switch and a high-precision throttle that allows gamers to adjust power settings in a game with pinpoint accuracy.

Logitech® Attack 3: With an easy setup and simple layout particularly well suited for entry-level gamers or those for whom a joystick is not the usual controller of choice, the Attack 3 joystick is suitable for gamers of any experience level. It features 11 programmable buttons to choose from, making it easy to select and fire weapons or to change gears. Attack 3 is the company´s first joystick in some time to offer an ambidextrous handle, providing excellent comfort and functionality for both right and left-handed gamers, while a throttle control rotates smoothly for accurate control of power settings.

Logitech® Dual Action Pad: Logitech gaming engineers took the most desirable features that gamers have been asking for and incorporated them into a gamepad with an affordable price. The Dual Action Pad has a lightweight design that includes two rubber-capped analog joysticks for total control and a smooth 360-degree motion. An 8-way D-pad allows for precise movements within a game. Four responsive triggers and six buttons complete the “right stuff” for eliminating the competition with minimal effort.
