Logitech Extends Award-Winning
PlayGear Family of Products for PSP

Powerful Headphones, Versatile
Carrying Case, and Protective Screen Cover for PSP

LOS ANGELES — May 17, 2005 — Today
at the E3 Electronic Entertainment Exposition, Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ:
LOGI) extended its PlayGear family of must-have products for the PSP™
(PlayStation® Portable) handheld entertainment system. The company unveiled a
powerful and stylish set of stereo headphones, a hands-free carrying case for
maximum mobility and protection, and a transparent faceplate that protects the
PSP screen from damage and blemishes.

Logitechs award-winning peripheral
designs complement many platforms, from PCs, to game consoles, to
home-entertainment systems, to mobile phones. The Logitech® PlayGear family of
products echoes the PSPs stylish appearance, enhances its functionality, and
helps protect gamers investments.

“Each product in our PlayGear family
has been developed to improve every aspect of use and the overall ownership
experience of the PSP — whether its with our state-of-the-art audio technology,
our stylized protective armor, or an easier way to carry the device,” said Ruben
Mookerjee, Logitechs director of product marketing for interactive
entertainment. “We use only the best materials and technology. The PSP is a
beautiful and powerful device, and we have taken great care in designing even
the most minute details in our products to ensure they are completely
complementary, both aesthetically and functionally.”

The Logitech PlayGear Mod
headphones
The Logitech® PlayGear Mod™ headphones deliver a powerful audio
experience and a comfortable fit, while sporting an ultra-cool, behind-the-head
design. The headphones feature 30 mm neodymium drivers that deliver crisp, rich
audio with superior bass. The headphones, which weigh only 1.7 ounces, feature
unique comfort rings. Made of a soft, gel-like substance, these removable rings
rest securely over the ear to make sure the headphones stay in place, even for
the most active user.

With a glossy black headband,
blackened chrome ear covers and a clear cable, the Logitech PlayGear Mod
headphones match the sleek styling of the PSP. The headband and earpieces are
made of a polycarbonate material, making the headphones extremely durable and
weather resistent. The Logitech PlayGear Mod headphones will be available in the
U.S. for a suggested retail price of $29.99 beginning in July. They will also be
available in Europe and Japan beginning in July.

The Logitech PlayGear Street
Carrying Case
The versatile Logitech® PlayGear Street™ carrying case offers
hands-free protection and mobility for the PSP. Featuring a clip-on strap, the
protective case can be worn across the chest like a messenger bag or it can
simply hang over a single shoulder like a camera bag. With the included
carabiner, the case can also be clipped directly to a backpack, a piece of
luggage, or even a belt loop. To protect the device when the PSP user is on the
go, the PlayGear Street carrying case features a mechanical latch that locks
when in the closed position. The polycarbonate top shell provides strong
protection for the PSP, while the custom-designed interior provides an exacting
fit so the device is secure when its owner is on the move.

The Logitech PlayGear Street case
features slots that hold up to three Universal Media Discs (UMD) and four memory
sticks, so owners can bring their games, movies and music with them. It also
provides access to the headphone port through the back of the case, even when
closed — perfect for listening to music on the go. The Logitech PlayGear Street
carrying case will be available in the U.S. beginning in July for a suggested
retail price of $29.99. It will be available in Europe and Japan beginning in
late July.

The Logiech PlayGear Visor
Protective Screen Cover The Logitech® PlayGear Visor™ protective screen
cover prevents scratches and fingerprints from tainting the PSP screen, while
still allowing the game system to fit into the softcase that comes with the PSP
Value Pack. The clear polycarbonate hardcover overlays the screen, allowing
complete access to all game controls, system keys and ports, so gamers can play
their PSP and protect it at the same time. The cover securely clips to the PSP
device with no tools required, making it perfect for long-term protection while
also being easy to remove. The PlayGear Visor protective screen cover will be
available for a suggested retail price of $9.99 in the U.S. by the end of July.
The screen cover will also be available in Europe and Japan beginning in July.
