Nyko, a top gaming peripherals manufacturer, announced their upcoming product line-up to be showcased at E3 this week. Previously known for it’s accessories on the Wii and Xbox 360, Nyko is stepping it up and is introducing a variety of innovative new accessories for the Playstation 3. Nyko will have three new innovative and affordable controllers as well as docking stations for your Playstation Move Controllers.
“Nyko has been a participant in E3 for 11 straight years and we’re excited to be using the show as the launching pad for our 2010 products,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “Sony had a banner year with the PlayStation 3, and we’ve developed a line of products that complement and enhance this console’s gaming experience.”
The first controller is called The Raven. This controller is Nkyo’s premium controller featuring Multi-Axis technology for full motion support. This controller will come in two configurations to provide a traditional way of playing as well as the first ever ergonomic alternative to provide a more comfortable way of playing. The first configuration is laid out just like the original PS3 controller where as the second swaps the position of the left analog stick and directional pad – similar to the Xbox 360 controller.
Next up is the Charge Station and Charge Station Quad for Playstation Move. With the Charge Station, players will be able to store and charge both the Move Motion controller and the Move Navigation controller at once. With the Charge Station Quad, players will be able to charge two of each. LED Charge Indicator lights on the Charge Station will display the charge status to let you know when you are good to game. Both units have a sleek design that will make it look great next to the PS3.
And to wrap it up, Nyko will have a Core Controller that features fully analog face buttons and joysticks for accurate and responsive gameplay. The Core controller will also feature a 9 foot USB cable providing lag-free response time. The Core Controller will have trigger styled shoulder buttons as well to allow easier control in action or racing games.
