Peripherals Specialist Launches Next Generation Accessories For 2006

For immediate release

UK peripherals specialist Pinpoint Consumer Electronics has launched a number of innovative new XBox 360 accessories from leading brand Nyko.

The kit includes a two-piece clear front plate and stylised base plate, fifteen blank templates, six pre-printed designs, and simple to use Game Face design software. The snap-together construction which houses the skins easily clips on to the front of the 360, giving users the freedom to change their faceplate on a whim to their own personal designs. Gamers can create custom faceplate skins featuring drawings, photos, stickers and computer generated graphics, which can then be easily printed off on a home printer. Unlike other solutions on the market, the product provides a fun and easy way to create quality custom faceplates at home in an instant with no online ordering or waiting for delivery.
