Earlier this month Nyko released its Portable Switch Docking Kit, a $50 alternative to Nintendo’s official $90 dock. Mine works great, and charging the Switch in tabletop mode is very handy, but a handful of users are reporting the device has killed their console’s charging port.
E3 isn’t just about new games. It’s also about new headsets, keyboards, mice, controllers, speakers and storage solutions. Let’s take a look at some of the coolest new hardware announced during the show.
If you’re the kind of online player who instantly mutes everybody talking at the beginning of a match, then the Nyko SpeakerCom is probably not for you. Maybe go with virtual reality acupressure arm strap instead. Nyko brings weird things to E3.
Nyko’s elegant console-mounted solution to adding cheap 3.5 inch hard drives to the Xbox One is finally available for purchase, one month after I cracked and added a terabyte via the ‘hang a 2.5 inch drive off the back of the console via USB cable’ method.
Not too long ago, it would have been hard to imagine filling up a game console with more than 500GB of stuff, but many of us have already reached that point. At CES, Nyko announced the Data Bank for the PlayStation 4, which both replaces the internal drive and allows 3.5" drives to qualify as internal storage.…
If you're looking for more elegant ways to charge your DualShock 4s and Xbox One controllers, we've got some creative new spins for you.
This is not a new model of the Xbox One. (Nor is it a paper-cutter.)
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.
With LittleBigPlanet Vita utilizing the touch controls of Sony's latest handheld to make creating and sharing levels more accessible than ever before, budding creators will need a lot of juice to bring their vision to life. Enter Nyko's battery-enhancing Power Grip, making Sony's dream of a batarang controller a…
Last week I reported on Power A's MOGA portable gaming system for Android devices, a system that allows developers to quickly integrate game pad support into their Android titles. Nyko's PlayPad line of tablet controllers might not be quite as elegant, but they make up for that lack of style by being compatible with…
While other hardware manufacturers focus on releasing high-quality arcade fight sticks that follow the same basic formula, Nyko allows players to change everything with the Free Fighter, a $179.999 programmable fighting game controller with a singular look and a unique modular design.
Nintendo's official 3DS Circle Pad Pro extension is, well, it's not very pretty. It's also getting hard to find. Thank the maker for Nyko, then, who have not only produced the world's first third-party alternative, but have come up with something that looks much nicer than Nintendo's offering.
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.
Available now at GameStop locations across the U.S. Nyko's Speaker Stand for the PS Vita adds a little more oomph to the Sony portable's sound, and transforms it into a handy mobile Skype solution.
When it comes to mobile gaming, first party acessories can get damn expensive. That's where Nyko comes in. When it comes to third party gaming accessories, nobody is as prolific and nobody gets their gear to market faster.
Nyko never met a console or portable it couldn't make a ton of additional crap for, and the upcoming PlayStation Vita is no different. At CES 2012 in Las Vegas the peripheral maker debuts its launch lineup of Vita accessories.
Because of the USB port on the PS3 controller, I always considered the DualShock charging stations I saw at Best Buy to be like bottled water. Why pay for something that's already provided for free, right? Just plug the damn thing in when it runs low on juice.
Come August 23 I will no longer need to move my couch in order to get my Just Dance on, thanks to Nyko's Kinect clip-on Zoom device. How much would you pay to cut your Kinect's space requirements by 40 percent?
There's not much to say about Nyko's wide-angle lens attachment for the Kinect—which widens and shortens the Kinect sensor's point of view, allowing you (and a friend) to play way closer to the sensor—except that it works.
