Nyko: forget Sixaxis, buy Zero FTW


1:40 PM on 01.11.2007




In addition to PS3 intercoolers, dongles, guitars, HDMI cables and other shiny accessories we also spent some time with Nyko's new Sixaxis alternative, the Zero series controller. The design is a near mirror image of their PS2 version (check out our in-depth hardware review) but with a PS3 home button at the center with glowing goodness.

There's a lot to love here: the PS3 joystick comes with a rechargable battery pack, an alternate AA backup pack, 10 foot charger cable, and glowing dongle adapter. The most notable thing about the controller is its weight -- it's at least twice as heavy as Sixaxis which should appeal to gamers that found the stock controller to be too light.

Want one? Hit grandma up for a $50 in a few weeks. A similar controller is also coming to the 360 with the left analog and D-pad flipped; available in 3 finishes -- two tone black, silver and black, and Wii white. Check out the gallery below.

Take a closer look at PDP's GameCube-style controllers for Wii U

I think I'll be perfectly set with the GameCube controller adapter for Wii U, but PDP's line of GameCube-inspired controllers (known officially as "Wired Fight Pads") are another valid option. Courtesy of Amazon, we now have ...more
