rAge expo 2015 is happening quite soon (it is 10 days away as I write this) and the information from exhibitors who will have stands at the show is coming in, seeding me their secrets about all the amazing, shiny things they’ll have on display. This year, Logitech’s stand may be the best one they’ve done yet, offering the chance to use the brand new G29 and G920 racing wheels as well as win them. Hit the jump for a list of things you’ll be able to play with at the Logitech booth (i.e. stand 93).
Logitech will be showcasing several of their products that have just been released around the world. Some of these products will be ones you’ve already seen reviewed on here at NAG, like the G402 Hyperion Fury, one of the best examples of a gaming mouse I’ve ever used. The company also recently released some obscenely well-engineered headsets, the G633 Artemis Spectrum RGB and the G933 Artemis Spectrum 7.1 Wireless gaming headsets. The G933 will be on display at the stand and the G633 will be on sale at the Computersonly booth, which is stand 15 (expect a price somewhere in the R3,000 range).
Here’s a list of the products that will be on display, with links to the product page so you can commence your drooling early!
- Extreme 3D Pro Joystick
- F310 Gamepad (PC)
- F710 Wireless Gamepad (PC)
- G302 Daedalus Prime
- G303 Daedalus Apex
- G402 Hyperion Fury
- G502 Proteus Core
- G602 Wireless Gaming mouse
- G700S Rechargeable Wireless Gaming mouse
- G710 Plus Mechanical Gaming keyboard
- G920 Driving Force (Xbox One, PC)
- G29 Driving Force (PC, PS4, PS3)
Logitech has also indicated that the G29 Driving Force will go on sale in South Africa during October 2015, though no retail price has been listed yet (Titan-Ice suggests something over the R5,000 mark). Remember that the G29 only comes with the base and the pedal set, as they now sell the shifter separately for anyone who wants it. It’s still possible to buy the older G27 kit, which includes the shifter and does away with many of the buttons on the face, but it is rarely in stock in most outlets, and isn’t compatible with the PlayStation 4.
If you fancy yourself winning a G29 Driving Force along with some other things, you can stop by the Logitech booth to set a lap time in a yet-to-be-decided game using the G29 on a PlayStation 4.
rAge 2015 will take place from 9-11 October 2015 and is a fun-filled family outing, packed with games, technology and lots more. Tickets are available at the door or at Computicket, starting at R100 per person for a day pass, or R250 per person for a weekend pass. Kids under 6 are allowed free entry (that’s what I call winning!).
