The two companies already enjoy a successful relationship. The new agreement will see video game accessories for the Nintendo DS and Wii systems, Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 2 and 3 consoles.

"We are thrilled to enter into this agreement with PDP," said Mark Blecher, senior VP and general manager of digital media and gaming at Hasbro.

We have had a very successful relationship with PDP over the last three years and are looking to expand that success with this new deal."

John Moore, VP of marketing for PDP, added: "We have enjoyed working with Hasbro and are very excited for the potential growth we will see in 2009 with this multi-brand licence and the new product offerings."
