    HUNT VALLEY, Md., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Save your money to buy more
 games and ditch the mounds of memory cards because you don't need them
 anymore.  The solution to your memory needs is here in Memory Manager PLUS.
 The unprecedented memory management and expansion software for the
 PlayStation(R)2, developed by InterAct Accessories Inc., a Recoton Company
 (Nasdaq:   RCOT), will eliminate the need for dozens of memory cards.
     InterAct gives gamers the ability to store 10 times more data on a
 standard PS2 memory card with the new Memory Manager PLUS.  For instance, the
 Memory Manager PLUS can expand an 8 meg memory card into a 64 meg memory card
 with room to spare. It's an easy and cost-effective solution to memory
 management and file storage for PlayStation(R)2 games.
     "We are extremely excited about this new software utility," said John
 Hays, Director of GameShark Product Development for InterAct Accessories.
 "While many of the latest PS2 titles allow you to create and edit new sports
 teams, levels, tracks, vehicles, and characters, they also hog memory card
 storage space. Let's face it, PS2 memory cards are expensive, and the Memory
 Manager PLUS helps gamers to maximize storage on every card."
     The Memory Manager PLUS is a feature packed CD-ROM that lets gamers load,
 compress, copy, delete, archive and save PS2 game saves with simple clicks of
 their controller.  By clicking on a save file the data is condensed so that it
 can be stored on any PS2 memory card or transferred to any USB compatible hard
 drive, zip drive or storage device.  As an added bonus, Memory Manager PLUS is
 preloaded with 100 free power-packed game saves for the top PS2 titles and is
 packaged in a DVD style storage case to hold your PS2 memory cards and Memory
 Manager PLUS software.
     The Memory Manager PLUS for PS2 will be available at all major toy and
 electronics retailers nationwide in May 2001 with an MSRP of $9.99.
