Logitech NASCAR Racing Wheels Speed into Stores
Carry on the NASCAR Season at Home with Logitech's NASCAR Racing Wheels for PlayStation 2 and Xbox
FREMONT, Calif. - November 22, 2004 - With the inaugural Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup series coming to a thrilling conclusion this past weekend, NASCAR fans will need something to keep them busy until the season resumes in February 2005. As the leading provider of steering wheels for PC and console entertainment systems, Logitech is pleased to bring the NASCAR experience into homes with the Logitech® NASCAR® Racing Wheel for PlayStation® and the Logitech® NASCAR® Racing Wheel for Xbox®, both currently shipping to retailers nationwide.
Logitech's NASCAR branded wheels feature extendable wings and suction cups to accommodate every driver's preferences. Users can experience realistic feedback and maximum performance from the wheel, while the wheel mounted paddle shifters, responsive gas and brake pedals, and dual vibration motors help them feel like they're really on the racetrack.
Earlier this year, Logitech announced a three-year licensing agreement with NASCAR, which authorized Logitech as the provider of NASCAR-branded wheels for PlayStation, Xbox and PC. The models for PlayStation and Xbox are the first to come to market since the agreement. The Logitech NASCAR Racing Wheel for PlayStation and Logitech NASCAR® Racing Wheel for Xbox are available now, priced at $49.99 and $59.99 respectively. A PC model of the wheel will be available early next year. For more information, please log on to www.logitech.com.
