Nintendo can claim that sticking with wired controllers makes its SNES Classic Edition a more authentic retro gaming experience, but in reality it’s probably just a cost-saving measure. Wrangling controller cables isn’t a part of your childhood worth reliving, however, so Nyko once again has mercifully bestowed gamers…
E3 is here and that means it’s crazy gaming gear time! From Microsoft’s latest Xbox to a tiny Atari 2600, here’s the coolest stuff we saw this week.
The Nintendo Switch is the perfect console for taking your games on the road, but if you want to connect it to a hotel TV for big screen gaming while traveling, you’ll need to make room for its clunky dock in your suitcase. It’s arguably the worst-designed part of the Switch, but third-party companies like Nyko are…
Several months after its release, it’s still difficult to track down Nintendo’s amazing NES Classic Edition. The tiny console is everything you want it to be, but it does have one tiny flaw that isn’t related to limited retail availability: incredibly short controller cords.
It’s fun watching people wearing an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive run into walls, trip over furniture, or smash into other obstacles while playing a VR game. But it’s not as fun when you’re the one accidentally breaking your own TV, so Nyko has come up with a solution that makes it safer to explore a VR world while you’re…
Nyko's new 3DS accessories are both excellent and horrible reminders of the way we live now.
A pair of lenses that clip onto your Kinect, Nyko's Zoom reduces the distance you need to play Kinect by up to 40 percent. If it works, it sounds terribly useful, especially in New York City (trust me).
Let's face it. The onboard battery for the 3DS stinks. It gets around 3 to 5 hours on a single charge, depending on the settings. Those numbers aren't anywhere near the DSi XL or DS Lite. Too bad there isn't… [Kotaku]
Because modern console controllers are all wireless, keeping them constantly charged is as vital to the gaming experience as choosing the right controller. That's why the original Nyko Charge Base was like my personal team doctor, making sure the guys were ready and charged for game time. But now could Nyko improve on…
The Nintendo 3DS isn't quite out yet but Nyko's already got two accessories that'll make sure you're juiced up for three-dee playtime right from the get-go. The Nyko Power Pak+, available March 27 for $20, is a fat rechargeable battery pack that'll give your 3DS roughly twice the juice as the regular one—and it's got…
If you're trying to play PS3 Move FPS games with style, Nyko's got you. They just announced two new gun accessories for PS3's new motion control system, which may (or may not) have you reeling off headshots in no time.
You wouldn't think a third party could clone a Nintendo product and then make it better, but Nyko may have done that with the Wand+.
Nyko's Wand debuted last year at CES, and this year they have something to answer the question of why people need a Wiimote AND a Wii Motion Plus separately. It's called the Wand+.
Do you have more Rock Band drum kits than USB ports to plug them into on your PS3 Slim? Well, Nyko is here to double your USB capacity.
Nyko's Charge Base IC is the most elegant solution we've found to charge pesky Wiimotes yet.
Nyko's latest Charge Station IC is a pretty unique idea in the otherwise ubiquitous design world of Wiimote charging stations.
The Wiimote is a cute controller, but it's $40. And now Nyko and Mad Catz have each released nearly identical alternatives that run $5 and $10 less, respectively. But do they work in performance-heavy gaming? Actually, yes, yes they do.
