Oh Logitech you crazy madcap company, you! At the beginning of March, reports began circulating that Logitech was to cut 5% of core staff as part of their new commitment to mobile peripherals. It’s true, the company has ramped up it’s smartphone and tablet peripheral game. So the assumption was Logitech would be downsizing the manufacturing of gaming related peripheral–or at least PC gaming peripherals. WRONG!
Just yesterday the company dropped a sizeable press release detailing their new Logitech “G” line of PC gaming peripherals. This new line contains two keyboards, two new headsets and 4 different gaming mice peripherals.
