Nyko To Offer PS4 Intercooler, PowerPak For Dual Shock 4
Sony hasn't produced a ton of first-party accessories for the PlayStation 4. At least, not yet.
That's where third-party manufacturers like Nyko come into play. As the company revealed during the CES event in Las Vegas (as reported by Digital Spy), Nyko will deliver two very practical peripherals for Sony's popular new console.
One seeks to increase the lifespan of the Dual Shock 4 controller. Gamers have complained of a shorter-than-anticipated battery life, so Nyko is bringing you a PowerPak replacement battery that features a 1,000mAh cell. We don't know when it'll be available but when it does arrive, it should provide users with twice as much power as the controller's native battery. And if you're worried about the PS4 overheating, you can eventually pick up the Intercooler peripheral. It automatically senses temperature changes and ramps up the speed of its fans to compensate for increased heat.
The Intercooler will run you $25 while the PowerPak will have a $20 price tag. Both sound awfully useful but I have a thing about using third-party accessories with my PlayStation hardware...ever since that crap-ass EB-branded memory card wiped out 35 hours of Front Mission 3 data and the first three hours of Vagrant Story. :(
