  • Review: Nyko Kama Wireless Nunchuck


    One of the biggest issues I had with the Wii was the Nunchuck. It felt bolted onto the the console and was basically a way to add a few triggers and an analog stick to the Wiimote. Not amazing and, when in the heat of battle, prone to flinging out of your hand and flailing wildly. Nyko took a look at the Nunchuck, said we can make this better, and has with their $34.99 wireless solution. Read More

  • Nyko upgrades its handy PS3 controller charger

    One of the problems I’ve had with the PS3 is the sort of last-generation feel of the controller connection when you have to charge it up. A USB mini port? That’s so old-school! It works all right, I guess, but it’s ugly and the wires stick out of the ports all the time – what you want is something as advanced as the console it’s for. Nyko has you covered; their… Read More

  • Wiimote, Nunchuck connection severed

    If I were forced to pick one thing I didn’t like about the Wii, other than it being a glorified GameCube, would have to be the wired Nunchuck. Let’s face it, we live in a wireless world and why shouldn’t that apply to everything else in life? I flail around when I box and many time have I lost control of the damn thing because it’s tethered to the Wiimote. Thank the… Read More

  • Nyko Wii Party Station

    I think Nyko is pretty aware of its target demographic. Let’s see: they play games in small groups, hence charging stations for four Wiimotes. Then they have a strange little scoring read-out so one of the players — the one who loves numbers — can keep score. Then it has four white drink cups and a chip dish. Finally, it has a hand dryer. Nyko, in a nutshell, has described… Read More

  • Nyko to World: We Did Not Burninate Your Xbox

    In response to claims that Nyko’s Intercooler 360 Xbox cooling system burns up Xbox 360s, Nyko is essentially saying that it’s impossible and that you people better calm yourselves. Fair enough. However, they’re also saying: While a small percentage of all products suffer from defects, the total defect rate for the Intercooler 360 is well under 1%, which is less than half of… Read More
