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
