Peripherals manufacturer Logitech has announced that it's abandoning its development of console peripherals to focus on PC and mobile, following a loss of $180 million dollars.
According to Eurogamer, Logitech president and CEO Bracken P. Darrell said, “We have also identified a number of product categories that no longer fit with our current strategic direction. As a result, we have initiated the process to divest our remote controls and digital video security categories, and we plan to discontinue other non-strategic products, such as speaker docs and console gaming peripherals, by the end of Calender Year 2013.”
No more of this from Logitech - they will now focus on PC and mobile peripherals exclusively.
Darrell also announced that he is hoping to expand Logitech’s presence in the tablet accessories market too, after Logitech’s Ultrathin Keyboard iPad Covers were hot selling items at the end of 2012.
Logitech will continue manufacturing PC peripherals. “We intend to sustain our leadership in PC platform-related products where we have engineering, distribution and scale advantages.”
