We met with Nyko today at CES to get a look at their first accessories for next-gen consoles.
The PS4 gets an Intercooler this spring, with the price set at around $25. Just like Nyko's PS3 version, the PS4 Intercooler ... read
Anyone that has a Wii U can tell you how much the battery life of the GamePad sucks. You'll get three hours if you're lucky, but it's usually less than that. Flip over the GamePad and open the battery port and you'll be surpr... read

I tried one out today at CES ... read
Nyko's product line-up for the Wii U sounds surprisingly useful (well, some of it). The major accessory of the group, the UBoost ($19.99), clips on to the system's GamePad and can "prolong playtime upwards of 10 hours." It ha... read

Nyko says that its new Power Grip for 3DS gives you three times the playtime of the standard battery, but that number on the box means nothing to me. I recently put it through my own tests to get a feel for how this accessory would work for me on the road.
I'll probably never take this off my 3DS now. read feature
I think one overlooked improvement from this console generation has been the switch to wireless controllers. Sure there used to be rubbish IR wireless controllers back in the day but they were rubbish. The only drawback with ... read
Folks with small gaming rooms rejoice! Nyko has the answer with its Zoom peripheral for Kinect. This brilliant little peripheral clips over the Kinect sensor, and let's you play Kinect games using "40% less space," per Nyko's... read
I met with Nyko at E3 to see what they had lined up for this year. Kinect and 3DS are hot gaming products, so it makes sense that Nyko had accessories lined up for both of them.
The Zoom attachment for Kinect is simple,... read

Last year at CES, Nyko unveiled their Wand controller for the Wii and we were very impressed. The changes to button layout were great as was the Trans-Port tech which allows other peripherals to remap buttons for the most app... read
