Logicool Japan Releases Final Fantasy XII Model Controller for Playstation 2

Tokyo, Japan, Jan 16, 2006 – (JCN) – Logicool Japan has scheduled the release of the Cordless Compact Controller-Final Fantasy XII Version for use with Sony Computer Entertainment’s Playstation, PS One and Playstation 2 gaming systems for March 16, 2006.

The limited edition controller features an optimal design for use in combination with Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XII, scheduled for release on the same date. The body of the controller will be painted an original color, Shiny White, and feature the silver-colored Final Fantasy XII logo.

A liquid crystal cleaner strap will also come packaged with the controller, and the set is expected to sell at a retail price of 4,980 JPY (tax included) in game stor es throughout Japan.

The design of the controller implements a 2.4 GHz advanced digital cordless technology originally developed by Logicool. The wireless signal can reach up to 9 meters, and the controller can operate as freely and comfortably as a regular corded controller even if the direction it is facing changes or an obstacle stands in the way of the signal, allowing users to play games or watch DVDs from a distance without difficulty.

Two AA batteries are required for operation and will power the controller for 50 hours if the controller has the vibrate function enabled or 100 hours if this function is disabled.

The Cordless Compact Controller is specially designed to perfectly fit the shape of the palms of the hands, with grooves for each finger, so that users’ hands will not tire of holding it even after playing for hours.
