Nyko Unveils PS3 Launch Lineup
Nyko, veteran peripherals manufacturer, has officially announced their launch lineup of accessories for the PS3 when it's released in the U.S. on November 17. They'll produce a Dual Charger AC, HDMI Cable, and Charge Link; the three add-ons will give gamers another set of options for high-def video and a reliable charging solution.
The Dual Charge AC features dual-USB inputs, which allows two PS3 Sixaxis controllers to be charged simultaneously with the use of any standard wall outlet and the two included Mini-USB cables. This unit also sports collapsible prongs for easy storage, and in truth, can be used to charge any USB compliant device, such as a digital camera. The Dual Charge AC is going to retail for $24.99.
And for those of you looking to take advantage of the PS3's built-in HD capabilities, the HDMI Cable is just for you. Capable of full 1080p output, the cable creates true high-def video and audio quality. This will retail for $29.99.
Lastly, the Charge Link is a simple answer for the Sixaxis charge dilemma. The Link will allow gamers to charge and play with the controller simultaneously, thus not interrupting your entertainment. Like the Dual Charge AC, the 10-foot Charge Link can also charge any other USB-compliant devices. The price for this handy accessory is $14.99.
"The PlayStation 3 is going to be one of the most in-demand consoles this holiday season and Nyko is ready to fully support the system with a line of innovative and useful products," said Chris Arbogast, marketing manager at Nyko Technologies, Inc. "Our launch accessories for the PlayStation 3 put the power of high-definition gaming and innovative charging products at the fingertips of gamers who want to fully tap the console’s power."
