Logitech announced today the introduction of their newest device, the Logitech Play Link. With the new device, gamers can establish wireless internet connections by simply plugging the attachments in and starting up their games. No wires, no routers, nada.
“We hear it all the time,” said Jef Holove, director of product marketing for Logitech’s Interactive Entertainment Business Unit. “Gamers have their PlayStation 2 or Xbox in their living room and their broadband connection in a home office. The Logitech Play Link wireless extension provides an easy, affordable way for those who want to game online but haven’t because of the complexity of home networking.
The setup is fast and truly plug-and-play — you plug it in, and it just works.”
When connected, the device achieves a range of 100 feet and delivers encrypted communication so that the one on one connections are secure. The no latency recievers will work at a rate up to 1.5 Mbps, more than enough for online gaming.
The Logitech Play Link device will release later this month for $99.99.
