Just in time for the release of EA's ultra-creepy Dead Space 3, Skullcandy subsidiary Astro Gaming is introducing themed versions of its A30 and A40 gaming headsets. While the headgear remains virtually unchanged, the news here is the addition of six custom magnetic speaker tags that feature tricked-out artwork taken directly from the game. Available on February 5th for $210 (A30) and $260 (A40), both headsets feature Dolby 7.1 virtual surround, a swappable cable system and cross-platform support for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. However, if you already own this eargear and are just looking to spruce up your cups, you can pick up the tags as a standalone purchase for $20 (A30) and $25 (A40) each.
ASTRO GAMING PARTNERS WITH ELECTRONIC ARTS
FOR SPECIAL EDITION DEAD SPACE 3™ A30 AND A40 HEADSETS
ASTRO Gaming Develops Exclusive Speakers Tags for EA's Latest Spine-Chilling Space Adventure; Six Custom Dead Space 3 Speaker Tags Now Available
SAN FRANCISCO – Jan. 31, 2013 – ASTRO Gaming, a division of Skullcandy, Inc. (Nasdaq: SKUL), and creators of premium video gaming equipment for professional gamers, has announced that the studio is supporting the upcoming launch of Electronic Arts' Dead Space 3™ on February 5, 2013 with six sets of exclusively designed speakers tags for its award-winning ASTRO A30 and A40 Audio Systems. Developed with direct input from both Electronic Arts and Visceral Games, the ASTRO Gaming Dead Space 3 speaker tags will feature artwork taken directly from the game to ensure a stylish, authentic and entirely terrifying representation of the latest entry in the Dead Space saga.
Developed by Visceral Games, Dead Space 3 sends troubled protagonist Isaac Clarke on a journey across space in an attempt to unravel the mystery behind the Necromorphs. After crash-landing on a frozen and desolate planet, Issac will fight not only for his own survival, but for that of all mankind, against an inhospitable planet and the deadly creatures who live there. For the first time in the Dead Space series, players will be able to team up and play together using seamless drop in, drop out co-op functionality. Both solo play with Issac Clarke and co-op play featuring the soldier John Carver provide players with a unique story and distinct gameplay elements.
ASTRO Gaming speaker tags provide customers with an opportunity to truly personalize their listening experience with magnetically interchangeable custom-made art designed specifically for the studio's award-winning A30 and A40 headsets. ASTRO Gaming headset owners can create their own speaker tags using the ASTRO Customizer or choose from dozens of pre-existing and highly stylish tags, including several eye-catching series by Upper Playground, iam8bit, Penny Arcade and more.
ASTRO Gaming Dead Space 3 speaker tags are available now directly through the company website at www.astrogaming.com/ds3 - three sets for the ASTRO A30 for $19.99 each and three sets for the ASTRO A40 at $24.99 each.
