Gametrak Freedom: out in October for $70

The controller’s been listed on website ebgames.com and is scheduled to go on sale, in North America at least, on 15 October. It can be pre-ordered now for $70 (£42/€49).

Gametrak Freedom’s manufacturer, Performance Designed Products (PDP), has kept mum about a specific launch date. But ebgames’ scheduled shipment date tallies with PDP’s previously announced autumn availability timeframe.

A little more information about Squeezeballs - a game “specifically designed to showcase the technology” used by Gametrak Freedom – has also been revealed by the online retailer.

Apparently the title features 11 game genres – including “Pumping”, “Creature Testing Belt” and “Cooking” – in which you must “blow up, cook, slice, bat, bowl, shoot and skim the Squeeballs…all the while using the Freedom motion handset to pull, stretch, throw, spin, shake, weave, fly and slide your way through the games”.

US customers can pre-order their Gametrak Freedom online now. ®
