Controller add-on to make public debut at PAX East.


VENICE, CA February 8, 2011—XtendPlay (, the critically acclaimed controller enhancement for original-equipment Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers from Xwerx, will make its public debut at the second annual Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) East, Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, March 11-13, booth 150.

"Reviewers from respected video game sites like Kotaku have praised XtendPlay, but we want to hear from more real-life gamers experiencing the product for the first time," said Dave Sparling, Xwerx CEO & Co-Founder. "We can hardly wait to see the product put to the test by so many people."

"It's one thing to please the critics, but in the end it's the hands-on opinion of gamers that matters the most," added Mark Sparling, Xwerx COO. "That is one of the main reasons we're heading to PAX."

Critical Darling:

In the less than 2 months that XtendPlay has been on the market, it has been a hot topic of discussion on Kotaku, Joystiq, Engadget, and Gizmodo. Among the most favorable reviews:
