Logitech intros microphone
Peripheral maker Logitech on Tuesday announced it will soon release the Logitech Wireless Microphone for avid gamers. The microphone connects to PCs and is compatible with the Sony PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 as well as the Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming systems thanks to a USB port. The microphone relies on the 2.4GHz frequency to provide the wireless connection to its USB base which doubles as a holder, with range of up to 30 feet. Logitech claims the two included AA batteries will last more than 20 hours.
Supported game titles for the entertainment systems include Boogie, Encore, High School Musical, Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol and Rock Band. The Logitech Wireless Microphone will be available for purchase in the US and Europe this December, with pricing set at nearly $80.
