Video game accessory maker Nyko Technologies.
Video game accessory maker Nyko Technologies is unveiling its lineup for Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One home entertainment system and Sony's PlayStation 4 gaming console. This is in addition to new products the company is showing for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at the E3 2013.
"Continuing in our tradition of embracing new platforms within the launch window" said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing, Nyko Technologies. "Nyko is leading the way with new products for the second screen console experience as well as unveiling successors to our best-selling Charge Base line which is being redesigned for next-gen consoles"
Topping the list of next-gen Nyko accessories is the Smart Clip. It holds your smart phone onto your gaming controller allowing for an integrated, hands-free second screen experience. Coming to Xbox 360 followed by editions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the Smart Clip will easily hold any generation iPhone, Android, Windows Phone or Blackberry device up to 3.5 inches wide. The Smart Clip is ideal for utilizing the Smart Glass or PlayStation App on your phone during gameplay. It will be released for Xbox 360, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
Nyko is also set to release new Charge Base accessories for the new consoles. This next generation Charge Bases will be AC powered and feature dual controller ports, allowing for two controllers to be stored and rapidly charged simultaneously. Each model is custom designed for their respective controllers. The Xbox One edition will come packaged with 2 rechargeable batteries; while the PlayStation 4 model will feature Nyko's patented USB charging dongle system. These designs both allow for easy drop and charge usability. The Charge Base for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be released in the launch window of both consoles.
Xbox One is receiving one other new accessory from Nyko. The Headset Adapter plugs into the HDMI port of the console to provide stereo phono audio output for use with most gaming headsets. The HDMI pass-through port provides a high fidelity audio source for your analog audio components, while allowing full 1080p output to the TV. No additional batteries, wall outlet, or software is required to use the Headset Adaptor. The Headset Adaptor will be available this holiday.
News10's Game Guys will be checking out the entire E3 lineup of gaming accessories from Nyko later this week.
