Nyko unveils new accessories for Kinect and 3DS

Posted in Nyko by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2011

Nyko has unveiled some new gaming gear. Zoom for Kinect is a pair of clip-on glasses that lets you get 40 percent closer to the sensor bar with no loss of function. Then there’s Nyko’s Play Clock, a charging dock for Nintendo’s 3DS that also functions as an alarm clock.

Nyko also introduced a trio of new extended battery packs for the 3DS. There’s the Shock n’ Rock that brings three times the juice, “added vibration feedback,” and four speakers. The Power Grip is an ergonomic external battery that also triples the 3DS’ battery life. The Game Boost battery snaps on for an extra hour or two of life. Prices and availability remain unknown for now.

Nyko charging dock, power pack for Nintendo 3DS

Nyko has announced some accessories for the upcoming American launch of the Nintendo 3DS, which should help the device’s battery life. The Power Pak+ plugs into the 3DS and will deliver about double the battery life. It adds extra bulk, but has a debossed surface to improve your grip.

You can also opt for the Charge Base, which powers up the 3DS directly and comes with a Power Pak+ of its own to extend battery life. Both can use the official 3DS AC adapter for a recharge. The Power Pak+ should be available on March 27 for $20. The Charge Base will be ready soon after and should cost $30.

Nyko announces two new Raven PS3 controllers

Posted in Nyko by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2010

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an uglier PS3 controller. Nyko is describing the feel of these controllers as “silky”. Even if that’s true, it’s like pouring perfume on a pig. The line includes a standard PS3 configuration as well as an Xbox 360 inspired “alternate” layout that flips the position of the left analog stick and d-pad for a more ergonomic feel, despite it’s looks.

Both connect wirelessly to your system via a USB dongle, and will cost $35 later this summer.

Nyko charge base for PlayStation Move

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2010

It didn’t take long at all for the PlayStation Move accessories are start showing up. You’ll want to pick up the shooting attachment, but you’ll also want some more practical hardware like this piece from Nyko.

This Charging Station is a nice looking and minimal one. It features four ports for charging Motion Controllers and your Move Navigation Controllers. You can pre-order from Amazon for $20 to keep all of your gear charged.

Nyko Wand + has MotionPlus built in

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 8th, 2010

Last year Nyko introduced the Wand, their version of the Wiimote. This year they update it, outdoing Nintendo by incorporating Wii MotionPlus technology into one single controller. That’s what Nintendo gets for being slow.

I’m glad I didn’t buy one of those MotionPlus accessories. Now I can get this and have a less bulky controller. The Wand + reduces the controller’s overall size and should give you a more comfortable gaming experience.

Nyko optical Zoom Case for Nintendo DSi

Nyko Zoom Case for Nintendo DSiWe’ve been seeing a lot of hype about Nyko’s optical Zoom Case for the Nintendo DSi around the blogosphere over the last few days. What gives guys? The ‘Brick covered this one back in June. I guess the release of the larger DSi has them all freaked out.

We still aren’t sure who would want an 8x optical zoom for their DSi, but hey, at $25 it allows your handheld to get all “mine’s bigger than yours”.

Nyko Wii Wands get some color

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 16th, 2009

Nyko Wii Wands get some colorRight when Nintendo finally puts some black on your Wiimote, Nyko is dropping four new candy colors for its Wand Wii remote.

Looks like Nyko is following Nintendo closely, offering the same blue and pink color choices that Nintendo is offering in Japan. There’s also black and purple. They should be available now for $29.99.

Nyko Charge Base IC for Wiimotes

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on August 19th, 2009

Nyko Charge Base ICNyko continues to push the envelope when it comes to Wii accessories. Their latest Charge Station IC takes things to the next level. It holds two Wiimotes using magnets and charges the controllers via induction.

And it doesn’t matter if they are wearing silicon sleeves or have the Wii Motion Plus add-ons. There’s also an extra USB port in back, just in case you want to charge something else. Nothing on price or availability just yet. It will likely fall into the $30-40 range.

Nyko Zoom Case for Nintendo DSi

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2009

Nyko Zoom Case for Nintendo DSiAs you can see from the above pic, the Nyko Zoom Case for the DSi makes sure that you will never call it a portable again. Supposedly, it will add 8x zoom to the built-in 640 x 460 camera. Which is nice, I guess. So long as you don’t want to put it in your pocket.

C’mon, who’s trying to take good pictures with their DSi? Apparently you can remove the lens from the Zoom Case, thereby castrating your DSi just as it has hit puberty and discovered it’s first erection. We don’t have any pricing or release date information just yet, but we’ll pass it along when we do.

Nyko Type Pad Pro brings QWERTY to the Wii

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2009

Nyko Type Pad Pro brings QWERTY to the WiiForget other Wii peripherals. This one makes your Wiimote look like an airplane that also sports QWERTY keys. This one is compatible with the Nyko Wand and not so compatible with the Wiimote because it lacks Nyko’s proprietary Trans-Port Technology.

What the Type Pad Pro does is transform an ordinary Nintendo controller into a sort of airplane looking full QWERTY keyboard. Through Trans-Port communication, the A and B buttons on the Wand are relocated to the Type Pad while the pad itself integrates with the Wii through a wireless USB dongle.

New Wii accessories from Nyko

Posted in Nyko by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2009

New Wii accessories from NykoNyko has unveiled new accessory packs for their Wand 3rd-Party Wiimote. You can get the Wand Action Pak and the the Wand Core Pak. The Wand Action Pak includes a Wand Wiimote and Pistol Grip. The new pistol grip has a digital connection to the remote instead of the usual mechanical connection to a button. It’s Trans-Port so they claim it will reduce wear and tear. There is also a switch on the bottom of the grip that can flip the A and B buttons for use in different games. That’s probbly the best part.

The Wand Core Pak includes a Wand and a wired Kama, Nyko’s own version of the Nunchuck. The Kama has vibration and connects to the Wand with a 4 foot cord. The Wand Action pack will be available for $49.99 in June, while the Wand Core Pack should be available also in June for $49.99.

Nyko Wand WiiMote priced at $35 in AprilThis good looking device is the only Wiimote alternative. It’s Nyko’s Wand Wiimote. Good news. You only need to wait until April to get one for $35. There are also two bundles available:

With the Wand Action Pak available in June, you’ll get the Wand and the Pistol Grip for $50. The Pistol Grip uses Nyko’s Trans-Port technology to connect the trigger to the Wand electronically instead of mechanically. Also in June, the Wand Core Pak will be available, which will give you the Wand along with a Wired nunchuk with Rumble for $50.

Nyko clones the Wiimote

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2009

Nyko clones the WiimoteIt had to happen and I’m surprised it took this long. Someone had to clone the Wiimote. That someone is Nyko. According to Mark Wilson of Gizmodo, who had a chance to play with it at CES, the device is pretty impressive, with no tangible difference aside from the red, white and blue color scheme.

The quality and response seems dead on. But aside from one-upping the Wiimote on good looks, “the Wand” has one advantage. Nyko is using it as the basis for their new Trans-Port peripheral technology. Where most Wii peripherals like the Zapper use mechanical contacts to link a trigger to an actual button on the Wiimote, Nyko makes this connection digitally.
