brand in the games industry, today announced a new addition to its lineup of
gaming headsets for the PS4™. The Ear Force® P12 amplified stereo gaming
headset (U.S. MSRP $59.95). The P12, which is specially-designed for the

through one simple USB connection. The P12 can be pre-ordered online beginning
today and will be available at retail globally on July 10. Turtle Beach is the

headsets. According to sales data reported by The NPD Group, Inc. (NPD),
