Skullcandy Teams with Codemasters, EA for Branded SLYR Gear
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is…well, it’s in a bit of a rock and a hard place situation.
The third and presumably last entry in the AoT franchise isn’t getting much of a publicity push before its release next week, and the studio behind the game is all but gone. That isn’t stopping Skullcandy from acting as an unofficial PR arm of sorts at PAX East, however, with Devil’s Cartel-branded SLYR headsets on full display at PAX East in Boston.
The SLYR brand launched late last year, and the wired console headsets can be found online and at most retailers for around $80. Poised as a second-tier option to the higher-end ASTRO line of headsets (Skullcandy bought ASTRO in 2012), the SLYR is for the “Gamers Second” crowd — folks who play games, but might not live and die by the controller.
While there weren’t any on display at the SC booth, there are GRiD 2 headsets in the pipeline as well. The entire SLYR/PLYR line should be filled out later this year, much of which is going to feature branding-style partnerships.
