license agreement, whereby Mad Catz has secured the rights to produce

specialty video game accessories based on Marvel's Fantastic Four

Super Hero franchise for the PlayStation®2, Xbox®, GameCube™,

characters with Mad Catz, a recognized leader in the video game

accessories category, and are confident they will bring to the market

broad audience."

"Marvel's classic characters appeal to millions of people

throughout the world and we are excited to be developing video game

accessories that appeal to fans of these Super Heroes," said Darren

accessory line presents us with another great opportunity to offer

compelling products at strong price points and to drive incremental
