Logitech officially announced that its Classic Keyboard 200 is compatible with the Nintendo Wii. Support for USB keyboards was added to the Wii with firmware version 3.1.
“We are pleased to have Logitech’s support and be able to bring yet another keyboard compatible with the Nintendo Wii console,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “Logitech is the perfect partner to support Wii gamers who want to optimize their Wii experience.”
“Wii has infused the gaming community with tremendous new energy,” said Bruce Lancaster, vice president of Logitech’s gaming business unit. “And the Logitech Classic Keyboard 200 adds value to the exciting Wii experience. Now consumers can enjoy the advantages of having a keyboard to help them manage their Wii Message Board and enter text in the Wii Internet Channel.”
Ready for immediate use, the plug-and-play Classic Keyboard 200 offers people the advantages of a compact form factor and low-profile keys. Ideal for use in the living room, the Classic Keyboard 200 features a spill-resistant design; if a gamer does spill water or coffee, for example, on the keyboard during the heat of competition, a carefully designed drainage system prevents the hardware from being damaged under most circumstances.
This budget keyboard from Logitech is available for $14.99.
