This modular PS4 controller charge station makes perfect sense

Where do you put your controllers when you're done with them? I tried one of those cloth- lined baskets, but I found that unless I laid them in there very carefully I'd accidentally hit buttons, turning all of my consoles on....

CES: Nyko fixes the sucky Wii U GamePad battery problem

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...

CES: Pro Commander: Nyko's cheaper Wii U Pro Controller

Have you been meaning to pick up a Wii U Pro Controller but chicken out every time you see the $50 price tag? Nyko's Pro Commander does the same thing at $15 less, coming in at an MSRP of $34.99. I tried one out today at CES ...

Nyko UBoost extends the Wii U GamePad's battery life

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...

CES: Nyko going gaga over Yo Gabba Gabba

The Nyko booth at CES is basically a big advertisement for Yo Gabba Gabba!, the children's show which has captivated children and adults alike. It's a good license to snag and a big way for the peripheral maker to return to m...

Nyko's 3DS Power Grip battery lasts FOR-EV-ER photo
Nyko's 3DS Power Grip battery lasts FOR-EV-ER
by Dale North

Okay, so it doesn't last forever, but it lasts a really long time. 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.

New Nyko PS3 stand charges controllers... with magnets!

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 ...

Nyko at E3: Zoom for Kinect, 3DS batteries

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,...

[Update: Here's who won!]

We're doing it again! We've teamed up with Nyko to get one lucky person two passes to E3 and a ton of Nyko products! The grand prize winner will receive two passes to E3 and all of these Nyko accessories for the Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and 3DS:

  • Wii: Wand+, Charge Station (Black), Wireless Nunchuck, Wireless Sensor Bar, Perfect Shot
  • PS3: Charge Base 2, Raven, Charge Station for Move, Skill Shot, Intercooler Slim
  • 360: Intercooler STS, Charge Base S, Power Kit 360, Power Pak Black 
  • 3DS: Charge Base (includes the Power Pak+ replacement battery and charging dock)

Two runner-ups will win one Nyko product of your choice for any system (based on availability).

To enter, we want you to submit photo or video of yourself, pet, friend, mom -- whatever living thing you want -- holding a Nyko product or Nyko logo. You have complete creative freedom (keep it safe for work) to even create something that resembles the Nyko logo (like macaroni art, for example.) Whatever you create has to be a real thing too, so no photoshopping/editing is allowed! Your submission must also include something related to Destructoid (a simple printout of our logo will work) so we know your submission was created recently.

The more creative your submission, the better your chances are at winning as we'll be picking the best submission to give the prizes to. You have until June 1 at 11:59AM CST to submit your entry in the comments below and contest is open to US residents only. Note: Nyko is only providing the passes and Nyko products. Travel and accommodations will have to be on you. Good luck!
