Nyko Unveils Data Bank and Type Pad for PS4; Light Grip and Mini-charge Dock for Xbox One

Nyko has announced its latest hardware accessories for the PS4 and Xbox One while at CES this week, and most of them add new functionality to the consoles.

Data Bank (PS4)

The PS4 will be getting a Data Bank accessory, which replaces the top cover of the console and the internal HDD with a new top and HDD bay that supports 3.5″ HDDs. This will allow for greater storage expansion that will be cheaper than installing a larger sized 2.5″ HDD. Nyko has also unveiled a new type pad for the Dualshock 4 controller that attaches to its bottom port.

Light Grip (Xbox1)

The Xbox One on the other hand is getting a new light grip for its wireless controllers that feature seventeen different light patterns and other custom preset light shows. The console is also in line to get a new mini-charge dock for controller batteries that will loop into the Xbox One’s side USB port for charging.

All of these items do not have retail prices yet, and they’re all supposed to release during the first half of 2015. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.
