Nyko Announces Gaming Controllers for Nvidia Tablets

Nyko Technologies announced a new line of controllers to enable console-quality gaming experiences on Android tablet devices. The Nyko tablet controllers are being developed with input from NVIDIA to ensure compatibility with a large library of high-end mobile games .

Nyko has also developed a free Android app, called Playground, to provide backwards compatibility for their controllers with legacy tablet titles, including those that currently utilize keyboard mapping, touch mapping and mouse support. Playground provides profile management for customized control schemes, as well as pre-set profiles for top selling and popular games. Like Nyko’s tablet controllers, the app will not require rooting of the device.

The Nyko tablet controller series/line features:

  • PlayPad Pro – Nyko’s full-sized controller for an at-home gaming experience, including dual analog sticks, d-pad, face buttons and shoulder triggers/bumpers for wireless tablet gaming in the living room.
  • PlayPad – Nyko’s mini controller includes dual analog sliders, collapsible tablet stand and a carrying case for gaming on the go
  • Console-style control for ease of gameplay, perfect for first-person shooters and other complex games.
  • No rooting required; controllers are usable out of the box
  • Compatible with all Android 3.0 and higher tablets/phones with Bluetooth®connectivity

Available Fall 2012, the tablet controllers will offer a future-proof gaming experience, blurring the line between mobile and console video gaming.
