And Now For Something Completely Different...

The summer has certainly not been kind to GOTY releases, as evidenced by the slow-down of Game Bullets content. So we thought we might try something a little different.

Our friends over at Gioteck contacted us about their upcoming line of gaming products, and being independent friendly, we thought we might give them a little shout out.

Some of their upcoming products we are excited to get our hands on:


The EX-05 Wireless Stereo Headset, cross-platform (PS3/Xbox/PC/Mac). I've been looking for a decent wireless headset since my significant other decided to step on my last one. If this runs as well as it looks it might be a winner! From their website:
The EX-05 integrates superior stereo game sound with crystal-clear voice communication on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC/Mac to create an outstanding audio environment for gaming on all platforms.

The EX-05 comes with an ultra lightweight headband, sturdy metal adjusters and breathable full-size ear cups to provide outstanding comfort for serious gamers!



VX-1 wireless controller for PS3
. Slick and ergonomic, looks comfortable, excited to give it a try.

...with rubberized handles for superb comfort during gameplay.

Featuring quick-fire triggers, precision D pad, anti-slip rubber thumbsticks, built-in rumble & powersave mode - this wireless controller is the perfect gaming partner.

And their foldable game chairs just look freaking awesome.

Go check out their full line of products on their website.

We are looking forward to trying out some of these awesome products, and hopefully will be doing so at the launch of our sister site, ApeInvaders.com. Coming very very very soon to the interwebs near you.

Now back to your regularly scheduled GOTY News.
