Logitech, a leading provider of digital peripherals, introduces the Harmony Advanced Universal Remote Control for the Xbox 360. As more and more households are adding gaming devices to their home entertainment systems, Logitech aims to answer the market need for a single remote control that is easy to set up and use by any family member.
The new Logitech remote control can command any Xbox 360 console because it is preprogrammed during manufacturing. Xbox users simply need to use Harmony’s X, Y, A and B buttons, which correspond to the commands in various Xbox 360 screens for choosing and navigating games, settings, music and media.
Setting up the Harmony remote control is easy with Logitech’s intuitive online setup where users can set up various entertainment activities, such as Watch TV, Listen to Music, and Watch a Movie. You can see these activities on Harmony’s LCD screen and each time you make a selection, the remote control determines the required state of all of the components required and shuts down any components that are not needed.
The Harmony universal remote control can command any device with an infrared receiver, and can be used on as many as 12 different entertainment devices.
The Harmony Advanced Universal Remote Control for the Xbox 360 will hit stores in the US in late November and will be available for US $129.99. Here’s a treat – if you buy the Harmony with an Xbox 360 before March 31, 2006, you can take advantage of a US $30 manufacturer’s mail-in rebate.
