At last month's Logitech preview in New York, our colleagues at Crave US got their hands on some serious musical instrument accessories coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, licensed by Activision to work with its Guitar Hero games.
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller has fully adjustable drum heads and cymbals. When we quickly demoed the kit we noticed the heads are also fitted with a unique padding, which we're told reduces noise when hit. The entire kit is collapsible, too, which is good when floor space is an issue. The company claims it'll get up to 50 hours of playtime on just two AA batteries. The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller will cost a hefty £179 when it goes on sale in September. It's compatible with the PlayStation 3 as well as the PS2, but isn't available for Xbox yet.
Strings more your speed? Introduced in June, the Logitech Wireless Guitar for Xbox and PlayStation has a very realistic weight to it -- almost identical to that of a standard electric guitar. Also included is a rosewood fingerboard and metal frets, both adding to the realism. We had a moment to rock out with the axe and were impressed by how silent the buttons performed when pressed. It costs £179 and should be in the UK around the same time as the drum kit.
Update: A previous version of this story had both prices as £139. Logitech contacted us with more up-to-date (and extortionate) price tags.
