Hercules and Thrustmaster are two separate product lines owned by Guillemot, the former concentrating on sound and other computer hardware and the latter console gaming hardware. Thrustmaster had this misfortune of catching release dates just on the other end of the line where not too many new products were available for showcase. However, there were several updates to exisiting products that were featured.

The first is the MFD Cougar, an accessory that compliments the popular flight sticks from Thrustmaster. The Cougars come in packs of two, with up to eight supportable at a time, and feature customizable buttons to operate certain features of the flight sim. The peripherals not only make it much easier than trying to remember key bindings on the keyboard, but also helps to create the feeling of an actual cockpit.

The FGT race wheel, which was previously PC exclusive, is now being adapter for PS3 use as well, with a demonstration set up of Dirt 2. The Freestyle snow board attachment that clamps over the Wii Balance Board to give players an enhanced feeling of authenticity and control was also demo'd.

On the Hercules side, their line of netbooks were on display, the eCafe family. Not only are these netbooks stylish and compact, customized for more of the personal use, but each also comes with the very useful eCafe suite. This application features a web camera, date and calender, and an e-mail utility that allows users to track and read e-mails from up to four separate accounts.

More on the sound aspect, Hercules was showcasing entry-level and beginner friendly DJ tables that connect to the PC and though there is a display on the PC, everything can be navigated through the mixer.
