Logitech Unveils Black Edition of
Wireless Guitar Controller for PLAYSTATION 3

Wireless Guitar Controller for
Guitar Hero to be Available Worldwide

Logitech today announced the
Logitech® Wireless Guitar Controller for PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2
computer entertainment systems. Featuring authentic materials – including a wood
neck and body, a rosewood fingerboard and metal frets – the Logitech Wireless
Guitar Controller is for gamers who truly want to play like a rock star.

Following the introduction of the
Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller, Premiere Edition (previously available only
in select markets), the new black guitar controller is expected to be available
worldwide later this month. The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller is licensed
by Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) for the award-winning Guitar Hero®
franchise.

“Logitech’s new guitar controller
delivers the same unparalleled Guitar Hero experience offered by our previous
premiere edition to an even broader group of gamers and at a great value,” said
Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming.
“Everything about the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller is premium – from the
authentic wood material and flawless black finish, to the noise-dampening design
of the strum bar and buttons, to the authentic accents provided by the metal
frets.”

The Logitech Wireless Guitar
Controller offers a one-piece contoured wood body preferred by many of the
world’s leading rock guitarists. For reduced button noise, Logitech uses rubber
dome technology on the fret board controls, the same material used in its
award-winning keyboards. The guitar controller also incorporates a
touch-sensitive slider, located on the neck of the guitar controller so you can
rack up the points.

So you’ll be free to go where the
music moves you, the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller lets you jam at a range
of up to 30 feet from the console and offers hundreds of hours of battery life.

The Logitech Wireless Guitar
Controller will be available in a pristine black finish complemented with a
glossy black pick guard. Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Wireless Guitar
Controller for PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems is
expected to be available this month in the U.S. for a retail price of $199.99
(U.S.) and will be available in Europe in June.
