Nyko introduces pair of gaming controllers for Android tablets

Nyko Technologies, has today introduced a pair of new Bluetooth gaming controllers for Android 3.X+ tablets.  Available this fall, the PlayPad and PlayPad Pro will help ensure your Android gaming experience is not all that different from what you’re getting on consoles.  The two controllers are being developed with input from NVIDIA and will support a number of games in the TegraZone, including that that takes advantage of the new Tegra 3 4-PLUS-1 quad-core mobile processor

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

In addition to the peripherals, Nyko has also created a free Android app, Playground, to allow for backwards compatibility for their controllers with legacy tablet titles.  Even games that use keyboard mapping, touch mapping and mouse support can play nicely with the PlayPad series.
