Nyko Unveils PlayPad VR Controller for Samsung Gear VR

Nyko has announced a new controller for the Samsung Gear VR, which is dubbed the PlayPad VR. This controller is designed with gamers in mind and features a traditional gamepad interface. It can even serve as a cover for the Gear VR when it is not being used. It also supports Bluetooth, which allows it to connect to any Samsung phone, and thanks to its Android HID support, button mappings will be done automatically.

The until is set to retail for $49.99 this fall, but it will be shown off for the first time at E3 next week, so stay tuned for more details as they become available. You can check out a few glamour shots of the controller below.
