JOYTECH, one of Europe's premier manufactures of third party peripherals is pleased to announce an exclusive third party peripheral supply agreement with France's largest specialist software retailer, 'MicroMania'.

As part of the new agreement, JOYTECH will supply the leading retail chain with a selected range of core products across XboxTM, PSoneTM, PS2, and Game Boy Advance SPTM formats.

As the largest chain of specialist software retailers in France, millions of gamers trust MicroMania to offer products of quality and value, making JOYTECH the ideal choice for their exclusive supplier of third party accessories.
