GameTap today announced that it has entered into a marketing agreement with Logitech. GameTap will offer Logitech customers a free two-week trial of the GameTap service, along with a special discounted rate for the first three months of service at www.gametap.com/logitech. GameTap is designating the Logitech Dual Action gamepad and Logitech Rumblepad 2 gamepad as the preferred controllers for gameplay within the GameTap service. Logitech will feature GameTap branding on packaging for the Logitech Dual Action and Logitech Rumblepad 2 gamepad. Also, Logitech will market the GameTap service in regional Web promotions. This is the first agreement with a hardware manufacturer for GameTap since its launch this past October.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“GameTap works great with mouse and keyboard, however, we know for many that using a controller enhances the game play by replicating the original experience,Ã¢â‚¬? says GameTap General Manager, Stuart Snyder. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Since we want to offer our subscribers the ultimate gaming experience, it was important that we partner with a company that has consistently led the technology industry in innovation and product design, especially with USB controllersÃ¢â‚¬â€Logitech fits that bill.Ã¢â‚¬?
