Nyko's E3 line-up

Raven controller for PS3, Charge Station and Charge Station Quad for Move and Core Controller.

LOS ANGELES - June 14, 2010

Leading gaming peripherals manufacturer Nyko Technologies ® today announced the upcoming product line-up to be showcased this week at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), taking place June 15–17 in Los Angeles. The line-up includes a variety of innovative new accessories for the Sony PlayStation 3. From bold new controllers to charging solutions for the upcoming PlayStation Move, Nyko continues their tradition of innovation and affordable, high quality design.

“Nyko has been a participant in E3 for 11 straight years and we’re excited to be using the show as the launching pad for our 2010 products,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “Sony had a banner year with the PlayStation 3, and we’ve developed a line of products that complement and enhance this console's gaming experience.”

Raven for Sony PlayStation 3

The Raven, Nyko’s premium controller for PS3, features Multi-Axis Technology for full motion support. It comes in two configurations – the Raven Standard Configuration laid out identically to Sony’s controller, and will be instantly familiar to PS3 gamers. In response to player demand, the Raven Alternate Configuration swaps the position of the left analog stick and directional pad, giving gamers the first-ever ergonomic alternative to Sony’s layout. As the majority of modern games rely on the analog joystick, this is a great option for players seeking a more comfortable controller for gaming sessions.

Charge Station and Charge Station Quad for Move

Easily store and charge both the Move Motion controller and the Move Navigation controller at once. Or, with the 4-Port Charge Station, keep 2 sets of Move Motion controllers and 2 Move Navigation controllers ready for instant action. The convenient drop-and-charge design recharges the internal batteries in the Move controllers, while AC power allows for faster charging with no messy cables back to the console. LED Charge Indicator lights display the charge status, and both units sport a sleek design that will look great near your PS3.

Core Controller for Sony PlayStation 3

The Core Controller features fully analog face buttons and joysticks for accurate and responsive gameplay. The dual vibration motors will shake and rattle with the action giving you full immersive feedback with your games. With its 9-foot USB cable, the Core Controller provides lag-free response time, and with its trigger styled shoulder buttons your finger will easily stay put with every pedal to the metal moment in your favorite action or racing games. The Core Controller is the ideal hardware for those who want the most accurate controller, response and ergonomics for their PlayStation 3 at the most affordable price possible.

All of these new products will be on display in Nyko's booth (LA Convention Center West Hall, booth #5322) in addition to their existing product line of accessories for the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. To schedule a meeting with Nyko Technologies during E3, please email sam@triplepointpr.com
