Nyko's larger Wavebird alternative ships to stores.


LOS ANGELES - Nov. 30, 2004 - Nyko Technologies(R), a leading manufacturer  of innovative peripherals for video and computer games, has begun shipping  its Wireless Air Flo(TM) controller for Nintendo GameCube(R).  The cable-free  unit provides gamers with a consistent flow of fresh air through the controller  handgrips and features a new variable-speed control for custom hand cooling.  

The Wireless Air Flo controller for GameCube features lag-free gaming up  to 50 feet from the dongle inserted into the console.  Nyko's wireless  technology for GameCube includes a multi-channel design to accommodate  up to eight players without interference.  Precision error correction eliminates  interference from household appliances and other sources of RF interference.  

Nyko's popular Sony Playstation(R)-style button configuration brings intuitive  button placement to GameCube.  The wireless controller includes an ultra  responsive D-pad with a detachable joystick, which is ideal for arcade-style  and fighting games.  The automatic power save mode ensures long battery  life, so gamers can enjoy up to 50 hours of wireless gameplay.  The Wireless  Air Flo for GameCube includes four AA batteries.  

"For those who want the freedom to compete without cords, the Wireless  Air Flo controller for GameCube makes the perfect playing partner," said  Susan Corben, director of marketing, Nyko Technologies.  "Now gamers can  get in the zone playing Metroid Prime 2 Echoes and Paper Mario without  the 'umbilical cord' feeling."  

Nyko's Wireless Air Flo controller for GameCube, the second product in  the Wireless Air Flo family to ship to retail stores, is priced at MSRP  $24.99.  The Wireless Air Flo for Playstation 2 shipped earlier this year.  Upcoming controllers in the line include products designed for Xbox and  PC.
