You can pick up the TD Freek directly from at www.kontrolfreek.com anytime after August 10th (it may also be available for pre-order right now) for a mere $9.99.



KontrolFreek Evens the Playing Field with New TD Freek

Makers of The Popular FPS Freek And Speed Freek Suit Up For Football Season

July 26, 2010 – ATLANTA – KontrolFreek (www.kontrolfreek.com), makers of the wildly popular FPS Freek and Speed Freek attachments for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers, announced today that they are expanding their family of products to include a new football-themed adapter dubbed the TD Freek. In keeping with the company’s tradition of offering innovatively designed and functionally effective console gaming accessories, the TD Freek gives football gamers improved comfort and maneuverability in titles like Madden and NCAA football. The adapter serves as a joystick extension and features a premium grip designed to resemble the external skin of a football. The result is added leverage, accuracy and comfort for the player. The TD Freek will be available at www.kontrolfreek.com starting August 10th for $9.99.

With the addition of TD Freek, KontrolFreek adds another compelling product to its stable of gaming gear and tackles another major genre for gaming titles. Enthusiasts and competitive football players alike will be thrilled with the results they see after spending a little time using TD Freek. The attachment provides gamers benefits on both sides of the ball.

Offense: Avoid being tackled, get the yards and make the play with a higher degree of control over the ball carrier. From the moment the ball is snapped, the player will notice the difference in their gaming performance using the TD Freek.

Taking a step back with the quarterback and maneuvering inside the pocket -- where every step matters -- is a totally different experience with a longer joystick. And if the pocket collapses causing the player to have to scramble, the TD Freek will give the player the necessary grip to make split second decisions. This is especially relevant to rushing and passing plays where the TD Freek can improve both control and accuracy.

Defense: Stop the offense in its tracks with more precise control and tackling. Football is a game of inches, and the longer joysticks and hence better leverage afforded by the TD Freek will help the player push the offense back one yard at a time by tracking down and making better tackles.

“Football is hugely competitive in the world of console gaming and KontrolFreek is proud to bring Madden and NCAA football players the equipment to take their game up a notch,” said Ashish Mistry, CEO of KontrolFreek. “Sports gamers are some of the most passionate in the industry and we are very excited to now be able to play a role in that space. The TD Freek helps further KontrolFreek’s mission of providing top-notch console accessories for every gamer in the household. Look for more from us in the coming months as we continue to expand to new genres.”
