Gaming Nexus CES 2009: NYKO

Gaming Nexus writes: "We caught up with the NYKO folks at Digital Experience on Wednesday and saw some of the new products (and John's initial impression of the new Kama), but our Thursday meting still had a couple of items we hadn't seen yet. These included the new Wand for the Wii and the Metal Pedal for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The Wand has subtle differences from the Wii remote, but it is the exact same shape and size. The changes are mostly cosmetic or designed to alter the appearance, but the trigger, battery cover and the port on the bottom are completely different. The trigger and battery cover are coated in textured rubber for better grip, while the bottom port is designed to allow for NYKO peripheral integration (Transport technology that auto maps to other peripherals) into several other products from the new line. Some of the buttons and lights are moved around slightly, but in the same general area on the surface. I played with it for a while, including an integrated gun-grip unit, and it seemed to work well without any noticeable issues and was very responsive. Overall, it felt real good in my hand and would have been tough to find any real difference from the Wii remote that could impact how we use the remote to play games."
