Nyko reveals new VR accessories for HTC Vive and PlayStation VR

While Nyko didn’t show off anything brand new for home consoles at CES, we did get to see a line of accessories developed for the new model of PlayStation 4 Slim and Pro models as well as the Xbox One S. For the PlayStation 4 we were shown the Data Bank Pro ($39.99), which gives you the ability to increase the storage capacity of your PS4 and is perfect for gamers who prefer downloading games directly into their hard drive. It’s easy to install and comes with everything you need like its own power source and supporting up to 2TB of memory.

Also shown were the Speakercom ($24.99), an alternative way to speak and listen to your teammates talk without the need of a headphone. It adds a bit of weight and will definitely impact the way you hold the controller.

Nyko also revealed some upcoming accessories for both the HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. For the PS VR we saw the PlayStation VR Stand, the Charge Block ($19.99), which lets you charge both motion controllers when not in use; and The Charge Link ($14.99), a 10-foot cable featuring two micro USB cables to charge both of your motion controllers while playing, or any other micro USB devices.

For the HTC Vive we were shown the Charge Base ($29.99), VR Halo ($9.99) slip-on covers developed to add a layer of protection to your HTC Vive controllers, and a VR Stand. One item that really caught my interest was the VR Motion Band. By using a pressure point, it helps deal with motion sickness which might be useful in quite a few games.

Nyko also showcased its line of NES Classic accessories including the Miniboss wireless controller ($19.99) and Extend Link adaptor ($9.99) to increase the length of your NES Classic Controller from two feet to eight, giving you more room to play. Both are available now.
