Performance Designed Products LLC, the market-leading manufacturer of the popular Afterglow® brand of game controllers and communicators, today introduced Rock Candy™, a colorful line of sleek new gaming controllers designed to offer gamers maximum control and maximum self-expression at a minimum price
The Rock Candy™ line of gaming controllers is designed to deliver comfortable ergonomics, smooth and uncomplicated aesthetics, matchless mechanical reliability and all the essential controller functions without loading the design down with lots of extraneous design flourishes. The Rock Candy™ controller for Xbox 360® is Microsoft certified with a standard Xbox 360® controller shape and ergonomics. The Rock Candy™ controller for PlayStation® 3 features an updated design to provide the PS3® gamer with hours of comfortable gaming, and the Rock Candy™ Gesture Controller for Wii™ is a wireless remote compatible with Wii™ MotionPlus™, making it the perfect secondary controller for Wii™ games on either the Wii™ or Wii U™.
However, the line’s bright colors are just the opposite of simple. The variety of colors available will allow gamers to express their individual gaming style without sacrificing ease of play. The initial line launch includes a cool and calculating blue, a naturally talented and elegant green, a fiery passionate red and a wild, free spirited pink with even more colors to come. Color is Expression™ with the Rock Candy™ line of gaming controllers.
