Logitech has expanded its range of controllers for music games, with the announcement of wireless drum and guitar peripherals for Wii and Xbox 360.

Logitech already has peripherals available for games like Guitar Hero and it has now added to that with the Logitech Wireless Guitar and Drum Controllers for Wii and Xbox 360.

"Logitech's premium guitar and drum controllers have made it easier for Guitar Hero gamers to get into the music with even more realism," said Logitech's Ruben Mookerjee of the Nintendo peripherals. "Now if you love to rock out on Wii, you've got the gear to match your level of commitment to the game."

The Xbox 360 controllers are built with the forthcoming Band Hero – as well as the Guitar Hero games.

"When you're ready to upgrade your controllers or expand your band, you'll want to rip on Logitech's new drum controller," added Mookerjee.

"With the Wireless Drum Controller you can mark time, keep the backbeat, colour up your riffs and crash down on the cymbals.
