has unveiled a new line of USB gaming peripherals just in time for this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. A spokesperson for the company indicated to MacCentral that the USB peripherals will work on the Mac, although programmability may be limited, since USB game controllers are dependent on Apple’s own InputSprocket technology in order to operate.
The Nostromo line includes:
N40, a ten button game pad which will retail for $19.99;
N45, a $24.99 game pad featuring 13 programmable buttons and analog sticks;
N50 SpeedPad, a $29.99 controller which incorporates 10 programmable buttons, an 8-way directional pad, and a throttle wheel;
N30 GameMouse, set up with three programmable buttons and a scroll wheel for $39.99;
N60 Pilot Stick, a $39.99 joystick featuring twist rudder control, rotary throttle, an 8-way hat switch, and 14 programmable buttons.
Belkin says the new products will go on sale starting in July, and will be available through major retailers, distributors and superstores.
