Logitech Wireless Drum PS3

Logitech this morning filled out its last major needed add-on for music games with the Wireless Drum Controller for the PlayStation 3 (product link active soon). The peripheral is officially intended for newer Guitar Hero games but gives any compatible title four drum pads, cymbals and a kick pedal. Quality is a focus of the design with quiet pads, rims designed to avoid accidental hits and a pedal with an adjustable spring that can produce just the right amount of travel.

Rather than use Bluetooth, Logitech uses an RF-based signal with a USB dongle to cut back on latency and also to provide backwards compatibility with the PS2. A pair of AA batteries are enough to power the drum kit for about 50 hours of music. Treating the drums as a premium set has lifted the price of the controller to $230. It ships to US stores this month.
