Rumor: Microsoft looking to buy Logitech

Though there's not much evidence at the moment to back it up, Reuters is reporting on the rumor that Microsoft (you know, the Zune guys) is looking to buy peripheral maker Logitech, the shares of which have apparently gotten a boost from the speculation.

On the gaming controller front, we can't see much benefit. While Logitech's wireless controllers were some of the best last generation, the company seems to be a non-issue on the current platforms. On the other hand, maybe Microsoft just wants Jelly Jumper on the XBLA, in which case you can sign us up.
