If you have a Nintendo Switch you probably love it. Just the right size and weight with a screen that’s sharp and bright, one of the only issues is keeping it safe. Kotaku’s own Stephen Totilo put his in a sock, but there are other solutions out there, including retrofitting 3DS pouches using a bunch of arts and…
There are very good actual Nintendo Switch cases on the market, but sometimes the best solution to moving your console around can come from unofficial avenues.
Following a lengthy struggle with financial insolvency, gaming peripheral maker Mad Catz has formally ceased all operation. The company’s directors and officers have all resigned, and its assets will be liquidated. The company that spent nearly three decades pumping out PC and console gaming gear is no more.
Say you recently dropped a chunk of cash on a new Nintendo Switch. You might leave it in the dock most of the time, but at some point you’re gonna want to pick it up and take it with you. Before you do that, you should probably get a case.
The Nintendo Switch’s Pro Controller is partially translucent, meaning that you can look inside the guts of the accessory. You’d think, then, that anything housed within would be easy to spot, but there’s actually a furtive little easter egg that you’ll need to look closely to see.
In 2007 Mad Catz purchased relatively venerable PC peripheral maker Saitek for $30 million. After nearly nine years of flight sticks and farming controllers, Mad Catz is passing Saitek over to Logitech for a mere $13 million.
Every couple of years I like to stop by The Controller Shop and design work of gamepad art. During my most recent visit I found myself overwhelmed by available options, so I turned design duties over to my son, Seamus. He’s really into red right now.
Tired of controlling Netflix and Hulu on your PlayStation 4 with an unwieldy game controller? Probably not, but it wouldn’t hurt to have a remote around, like this official one. It has buttons that make the PS4 and other devices do things.
Between flood damage and the inconvenience of moving dust-collecting plastic instruments to a new home on short notice, every piece of Rock Band or Guitar Hero equipment I once owned has been trashed, save one. Oh yeah, Baby and I are ready for Rock Band 4.

Just as Power A did with Skylanders, gaming peripheral makers PDP have teamed with Disney to give Infinity gamers a place to put their toys when they aren't using them. Here's a quick look at what storage PDP has in stores.
Microsoft finally got down to officially telling everyone the official price of an extra Xbox One controller, and it's $59.99. The Xbox One's headset—which isn't included in the box—is $24.99.
Clever, clever Nyko. Banking on Xbox Smart Glass and the second-screen experience being a big part of the next generation of consoles, they've readied a means to bolt your phone onto your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 controller.
If you, like me, recently dropped a couple hundred bucks on a 3DS XL, you probably have thought about picking up a case to keep it safe. The challenge is finding a case that is even remotely acceptable. For some reason, the majority of non-Nintendo-made 3DS accessories are poorly-made hunks of junk, a problem is…
Winter is coming, and we're going to need gloves. Not just any gloves, mind you, but gloves that allow us to interface with the touchscreen devices that have become such a huge part of our everyday lives over the past few years. I've been looking for a good pair for ages. I believe I've finally found them.
Since taking up duties as Kotaku's official mobile gaming guy, I've started spending a large amount of time sitting outside on my patio, trying to look busy while playing games on my iPad or my Transformer Prime. The PadPivot is my constant companion, resting reassuringly upon my thigh andkeeping my tablet safe and…
Creating convenient game controllers for mobile phones and tablets is a big thing. Black Powder Media's iMpulse is a tiny thing. The keychain game controller / key locator is looking to Kickstarter as a sort of early release program.
It could be that the prayers of iOS gamers everywhere are about to be answered. That's right: Apple might be going to support gamepads working with iOS devices. Update: Not quite.
In 2007 my older sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through hell fighting against the malignant neoplasm — radiation, chemotherapy, a mastectomy, follow-up surgeries and reconstruction. She won her battle eventually, but the process was painful for the entire family. It's safe to say I hate breast…
As a father of a pair of twin boys addicted to musical television shows, I'm not sure the prospect of a Nintendo DS / iPhone dock alarm clock containing 30 songs from the hit children's show Yo Gabba Gabba is a blessing or a curse.
