LOS ANGELES - Oct. 6, 2008
Nyko Technologies®, the premier gaming peripherals manufacturer, today announced that the Media Hub+ for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3) is now available at North American retail stores. Compatible with all PS3 models, the Media Hub+ easily attaches to the console, adding three additional USB ports and a media card reader slot that supports SD cards and Memory Sticks. The Media Hub+ expands the PS3’s media capabilities, while maintaining a clean form factor by matching the contour and finish of the system.
The Media Hub+’s unique design requires no tools or internal modifications, draws power directly from the PS3, and installs instantly. It easily attaches to any available USB port enabling the connection of three additional USB devices to the console including flash drives, PlayStation®Portable (PSP™), MP3 players and additional controllers. The recent popularity of games requiring multiple peripherals, such as the various music/rhythm games, makes the Media Hub+ a necessity for owners of the 40GB PS3 console.
“The 40GB model is the best-selling version of the PS3 console in North America but it sacrifices several USB ports and the media card reader,” said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. “We saw the Media Hub+ as an opportunity to provide users of this model with an option to expand their console’s multimedia capabilities with the additional USB ports and media card reader, all at an affordable price.”
Nyko’s Media Hub+ for PS3 is available in stores now for the suggested retail price of $19.99. Please visit www.nyko.com for more information.
