Logitech today announced that its USB Keyboard and Optical Mouse designed for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system is scheduled to arrive on retail shelves in the U.S. and at later this month. The USB Keyboard has a suggested retail price of $29.95 USD and the Optical Mouse has a suggested retail price of $19.95 USD. Both products are on display at the Logitech booth (#1008) at the Game Developers Conference.

"We've taken our experience and leadership in keyboards and mice and used them to deliver two quality products that offer new control options to PlayStation®2 fans," said Fred Swan, Director of Marketing for Logitech's Audio and Interactive Entertainment Business Unit. "As more and more titles provide the option of using something other than a gamepad as a controller, gamers are looking for reliable, high performance devices. We're meeting this need with products designed for them."

Logitech has created a quality USB Keyboard for PlayStation®2, with a familiar keyboard layout and comfortable, quiet keys. The keyboard, especially ideal for gamers who chat online, features a compact design that sits easily on the lap or tabletop.

The Logitech Optical Mouse, from the company that has sold more than 400 million mice, features optical tracking technology to provide exceptional precision and speed on almost any surface. This optical tracking technology has no moving parts and requires no cleaning. The mouse can be used with either hand, while three buttons and a scroll wheel give expanded control options within a number of games. Both the keyboard and the mouse include an 8-foot cable, enabling players to use each device from a comfortable distance.

Developers continue to build support for the keyboard and mouse into many games. Currently, both products are supported by: Unreal Tournament from Infogrames, Red Faction® II from THQ, Half-Life from Sierra, and Majesco's Soldier of Fortune and Star Trek: Elite Force. In addition, Rune Viking Warlord from Take2 includes keyboard support.
