Logitech to Stop Console Accessory Production

Logitech is winding down their console peripheral production. (Industry, logitech)

Does this include gaming headsets?
Pandamobile  +   636d ago
Console headsets, probably. PC headsets, no.

Maybe they should wait til next gen consoles release.
It may make a difference. Ppl get excited.

no doubt that they make good stuff
but why can't they price them more competitively? G25 and G27 cost a fortune and their gamepads like F510 and F710 are expensive too! I can buy 3 or even 4 decent wireless gamepads from other unknown makers for the price of 1 "wired" F510 here in my area! there are lots of alternatives out there and most people aren't willing to spend a fortune just for peripherals! if only Logitech can reduce their profit margin a bit and lower their prices, many more people will buy their products instead of just slightly cheaper others!

G27's are going be notoriously hard to find soon enough.

pretty sure those won't stop being produced.

I guess that's bad news for those who want a Driving Force GT but can't afford the high end G27.
I was lucky enough to grab my DF-GT at cheap price long before GT5 (not prologue) came out.

I don't think I've ever seen it average for less than $130 at retail. Hoarders are likely to bump the current price by $20-40 of more. >_>

G27's are mainly used in the sim racing area, that are on pc's. As long as the new consoles have USB's we'll still be able to use a decent wheel/pedals combo. So yea, they wont stop making them.

not really surprising. Controllers are pretty much exclusive to Console manufacturer. Same as headsets.... Logitech just really doesn't have a market anymore. This isn't the PS2 days where they have the best wireless controller on the market. still, they make some good peripherals. Not that I'd imagine they're big sellers but w/o Logitech who's going to make us quality Racing Wheels? Sad day....

Fanatec make a nice selection of racing wheels for the consoles. I use a CSR for my xbox 360 / ps3 /pc and works brilliant
rodiabloalmeida  +   635d ago
Yeah, but Fanatec support is terrible.
