Did you hear that ASTRO & Skullcandy premiered 2 new partner editions at E3? We are honored to give you a sneak peek of the new Battlefield 4 Edition A40s/A50s, & new Skullcandy Gaming, Assassins Creed 4 Edition SLYRs. With both BF4 & AC4 set to release later this year, we’ll have more details about these partnerships & headsets in the coming months. What do you think?
Along with the new first person shooters, fighting games, and next gen titles, ReMasters & ReMixes left a big impression on the community. We sat down with Mat Kishimoto from Square Enix to find out what’s happening with the new Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX! Check it out:
We are extremely excited for the next generation of console gaming on the XBOX One & Playstation 4, and recognize it’s been a hot topic for our fans. As you all know, everyday since E3 the news has been filled with new features & updates for both consoles. We were very impressed with both systems and look forward to the upcoming releases. Thank you for your patience while we prepare for the revolution.
Regarding whether our current ASTRO products will work with the new XBox One and PlayStation 4, based on further dialog at E3, here’s what we can share at this time:
RE: PlayStation 4. Should work fine with our current products, but we’ll confirm in the coming weeks.
RE: Xbox One. We’re working closely with Xbox to create the best ASTRO audio solution.
For either or both systems, we may provide an upgrade path to our customers who purchased earlier this year or maybe even a trade-in program, but that decision is still to be determined.
To be clear, we are in discussions with both Sony and Microsoft to secure the required next-generation licenses to develop new licensed products for both the PS4 and Xbox One. But we’re not rushing anything to market – we’re going through our proprietary design process; getting input from our pro teams and industry experts, to ensure that products by ASTRO will produce the best game audio and voice-com experience for our customers and eSports teams, worldwide.
We’ll do our best to keep you updated.Thanks for your continued support of ASTRO!
