VENICE, CA November 30, 2010—Xwerx, an interactive product design company, today gives the first look at XtendPlay ( www.xwerxonline.com), a controller enhancement for original-equipment Xbox 360 and PlayStation controllers that improves the biomechanics of game play, making gaming a more comfortable and rewarding experience. The secret is in the design of XtendPlay, whose size and shape boost comfort in any playing position and whose innovative fleXlite™ shape and soft-touch material keep fingers and hands relaxed while optimally placed Airflow Channels keep hands cool and dry.

Our vision is for XtendPlay to become as essential a competitive element to gaming as the mitt is to baseball."

"Thousands of hours of play-testing has gone into the design and refinement of this product," added Mark Sparling, Xwerx COO and Co-Founder. "Of course, XtendPlay for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation are only the beginning; our extended plan involves the full range of interactive entertainment device enhancements."
