It’s that time of year again, E3 is that annual tradition when many game companies make their major announcements for what they have coming in the following year. Nyko has no shortage of new peripherals for various items for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Gear VR, and Hardcore Gamer has a list straight from the source that lists when we can expect to see.
Nyko Technologies and Samsung have partnered to create PlayPad VR for Gear VR with Controller, a wireless VR controller that creates the ideal gaming experience for Samsung Gear VR headsets. PlayPad VR has slider pads and buttons on the back for clickable sticks that allow for console controller precision while maintaining a sleek form factor. PlayPad VR charges via a Type C cable, and easily clips onto the front of the Gear VR to replace the normal cover for painless storage. PlayPad VR is compatible with previous versions of Gear VR. The controller will be available later this year for an MSRP of $49.99.
