Logitech adds wireless music controllers for Wii, Xbox 360

Logitech wireless drums, guitar for Wii

Logitech this morning countered the launch of Beatles: Rock Band with the launch of three music game controllers, including its first two for the Wii. The Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii and companion Wireless Drum Controller for Wii both replace the stock plastic controllers with more authentic metal and wood that both feels more natural and is quieter to use. These Nintendo-specific models also have a slot for the Wii remote to provide normal controller functions in a single body.

Adding to these is the Wireless Drum Controller for Xbox 360, which achieves the same more realistic effect as the Wii version but embeds Xbox 360 controls directly into the box above the drums rather than depending on an existing model.

All three peripherals will ship to the US in October. The Wii guitar is priced at $200, while both versions of the drum set will cost $230.
