You guys, you won’t believe this, but Nyko has made the Dualshock 4 even better! It’s fixed the only problem the PS4 controller has by introducing the PS4 PowerPak at CES 2014. It’s like the 3DS and Wii U GamePad PowerPaks, in that you clip it on and immediately extend your battery life. That’s the DualShock 4’s only flaw, and the PS4 PowerPak eliminates it by clipping onto the back of the controller, connecting to the Micro USB port. It’s like a battery backup and it’s just beautiful. And cheap, costing only $20 when it comes out later this year.
What? Did Nyko announce any other gaming peripherals at CES 2014? Well, yeah. Of course they did. But those don’t matter! Our DualShock 4 controllers will finally be able to go the distance!
Okay, fine. We’ll talk about Nyko’s other CES 2014 announcements. I’m telling you though, they won’t top the PS4 PowerPak.
Most of Nyko’s CES 2014 peripheral announcements were for the PS4. It’s getting a $25 Intercooler that will help cool the system for $25, a Charge Base Dock for the charging of DualShock 4s without cords, and a Smart Clip that lets PS4 owners without a Vita use a cell phone for second screen gameplay and attach it to the DualShock 4.
Still the Xbox One got a lot of love as well. It also gets a Smart Clip variation, as does the Xbox 360, and a Charge Base. It also gets a Headset Adaptor that will let people use almost any gaming headset with their system.
Nyko also has some Nyko SHIELD accessories at the show. Like there’s a SHIELD Dock for charging, Travel and Shell Cases for protection, and the Power Kit Plus to ensure you can charge your SHIELD no matter where you are.
See, I told you none of the other Nyko CES 2014 announcements were as awesome as the PS4 PowerPak announcement. Why can’t it be spring already so we can all get one?
