PDP Stylishly Approaches Infinity
Company: Performance Designed Products
Product: PDP's E3 2013 Lineup
Performance Designed Products (PDP) has a way with style; if you like techno-fantasy lighting schemes, the Afterglow line will make you feel right at home. And, while the Afterglow line turns a whopping ten years old this year, the Infinity reference in the title is not a reflection of its age, but rather a reference to Disney Infinity, as Performance Designed Products has a slew of storage and play accessories specifically designed for Disney Infinity.

PDP's impressive 2013 E3 product lineup includes the introduction of the Afterglow Prismatic Wireless Dolby 5.1 Headset, which will feature universal compatibility and crisp, clear Dolby 5.1 surround sound at an affordable price. Whether you want to look like you just jumped out of TRON or want headphones to match your gaming rig's accent lighting, the Afterglow Prismatic Wireless Dolby 5.1 has a cool, high-tech and almost sci-fi look to it. As for the sound, check back later for a full hands-on review closer to release date.

Afterglow Audio:
In addition to the debut of the Afterglow Prismatic Wireless Dolby 5.1 Headset, PDP's audio lineup includes the unveiling of Headbanger, PDP's line of consumer headsets and earbuds, and the Afterglow Wired On-Ear Headset for Xbox 360.

"Our philosophy of providing affordably priced, high quality, professionally tuned audio headsets for gaming continues with the latest addition to the Afterglow Universal Headset family. We're excited to see the industry's response to what we believe is our best headset yet. On top of that, we will debut our SmartTrack controller technology for the 10th anniversary of Afterglow controllers, our exclusive line of official Disney Infinity Accessories, award-winning Energizer gaming and mobile charging accessories and a gorgeous line of licensed and proprietary mobile cases. This will mark PDP's most diverse and impressive E3 lineup to-date."
- Bill Otte, Senior VP of Marketing and Sales, PDP

Afterglow and Licensed Controllers:
