Our own Dan Keener will be meeting up with Nyko at CES in a month and today they announced some of the things they are going to show off. Some will be unveiled during the show but they are definitely going to be displaying the Medal Pedal, Charge Station Quad for Wii, and Wired Kama and Wired Wing controllers. I guess if you don't want to use batteries the wired Wii controllers would be good but I just can't go back to a wired controller after using wireless ones for so long.
LOS ANGELES - Dec. 16, 2008
The premier video game accessories manufacturer, Nyko Technologies®, today announced a portion of its new lineup of products to be on display during the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show from January 8th-10th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
