<p>Connect PlayStation® 2, Xbox®, Xbox 360TM and GameCube® Consoles to your PC or Notebook- Play, Record and Replay your Favourite Games in Real Time</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – January 16, 2005 - Adaptec, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADPT), Desktop Solution Group, today announced Adaptec GameBridge™ (AVC-1400). This patent-pending gaming product is the industry’s first for connecting and playing PlayStation® 2, Xbox®, Xbox 360TM and GameCube® games on your PC or notebook to leverage significantly enhanced graphics without experiencing any performance delay. In addition, the GameBridge line is unique in allowing gamers to record game sequences and best moves in order to replay and share with friends – an “instant replay” capability that is a first for the gaming industry.</p>
<p>With the ability to deliver higher quality resolution – up to 32-bit colour 1024 x 768 pixels, a PC Monitor can provide an enhanced gaming environment. However, when connecting and playing console games on a PC or notebook, gamers experience a significant performance delay between moving the joystick and seeing the resulting reaction on screen. Adaptec GameBridge’s innovative, patent-pending technology eliminates this delay and delivers the same TV-connected performance while providing a host of additional benefits that were previously unavailable. Now, serious gamers can play, record and replay gaming sequences with contemporaries, enabling learning for strategic games while accumulating bragging rights for individuals.</p>
<p>“The gaming industry has seen a tremendous amount of growth in recent years and this trend continues as evidenced by the recent introduction of new console game products that have created additional excitement and opportunities. GameBridge products are uniquely positioned to enable PC users to enhance their PlayStation® 2, Xbox®, Xbox 360TM and GameCube® experience by delivering a significant advancement in gaming and media centre entertainment,” said Dr. Samuel Chih, vice president and general manager of Adaptec Desktop Solutions Group. “In essence, the personal computer becomes the centralized system for gaming and home entertainment.”</p>
