In an effort to address gaps left by Sony when designing the PlayStation 4, accessories manufacturer Nyko has unveiled two new peripherals for the console which should keep it running cooler, longer. One of the most salient gripes against the PS4 is that the DualShock 4 controller runs out of ju...

Last year at CES, Nyko unveiled the Wand, its take on Nintendo's Wiimote. This year, the peripheral maker's big item is ... abracadabra ... the Wand -- with one exciting addition! The $40 Wand+ is a single, self-contained unit that includes MotionPlus compatibility. The device still supports the c...

Never has one company mooched off of poor design like Nyko. Okay, so maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but according to the peripheral maker, the original Xbox 360 Intercooler is the top selling third-party accessory for the Xbox 360 -- despite the fact that it's known for torching consoles and lea...

Just in case your Wii has suddenly and unexpectedly become some sort of flamethrower in recent weeks, Nyko is introducing a cooling solution of its very own. Granted, we don't really expect that most Wii consoles will actually need this thing, but we're sure the "better safe than sorry" crowd will...

Eager to recreate the success of their Xbox 360 Intercooler – and complement their similarly useless PlayStation 3 Intercooler – Nyko has created the Intercooler for Wii. Y'know, to keep that space heater cool? We kid because we care. Here at Joystiq HQ we've actually entertained doze...

If you're still deathly afraid of your Xbox 360 overheating, then we have a brand new solution for you. Introducing the Titan XFan, a device bulky enough that it's likely to make your power brick jealous. So, what makes the XFan different from the 360-melting NYKO Intercooler? Apart from its arguabl...

Nyko has something that claims to keep your PS3 chilled enough to stave off overheating problems experienced on other next-gen consoles. Their Intercooler is similar to the Xbox 360 version in that it features power pass-through, though we hope the similarities end there. Overall, the design is clea...

We imagine that "Innercooler" was already trademarked and, seeing as how kids love their internets, a branding dynasty was born: Nyko's Intercooler. Despite the possibility of burninating your precious Xbox 360, the Intercooler sold like, err, hot cakes capitalizing on gamer's fears that all that he...

Just over a year ago, Nyko busted out a lucrative solution to the world of overheating problems that hordes of Xbox 360 users were experiencing, and even after being lambasted for causing consoles to draw an unsafe amount of electricity, the company hasn't learned a thing. Unlike Pelican's attempt...

Despite concerns about Intercooler 360's power-leeching design*, Nyko has managed to ship over 500,000 units to retailers worldwide. This is a significant achievement for the peripheral manufacturer, which had the savvy to exploit mass hysteria generated from rumors that Xbox 360 overheats to the po...

Nyko's Intercooler for the Xbox 360 causes more trouble than it's worth, according to Microsoft representative contacted by Elektriq. The problem is its construction: the Intercooler steals some of the power originating from the supply, decreasing the joules the console actually receives to inadequa...

Those that use Nyko's Intercooler 360 may want to consider this post at XboxAddict. Supposedly, the Intercooler is actually competing with the 360 for power. The Intercooler runs off the same electricity as the 360, so the console may not have enough juice to run properly -- and could break down. A...

We've seen our fair share of products that aren't exactly "as advertised," but it seems that Nyko's Intercooler might actually up the stakes by accomplishing the complete opposite of what it's intended to do. While the Xbox 360 has experienced a good bit of "technical difficulties" in its short lif...

There are a few ways to remedy the Xbox 360's heat problem, but none of them are as impressive as the all-internal water-cooling system created by Dano2k0 on the Xbox-scene forums. Somehow, he's managed to squeeze a Zern GPU block, a Koolance GPU-180-H06 block, a Tank-o-Matic mini reservoir, a 12...

This wasn't exactly the kind of peripheral we've been searching for to upgrade our Xbox 360s here around the office, but hey, if your box is overheating and you don't want to send it back to Redmond (or can't because of, um, certain "modifications"), check out Nyko's Intercooler. Yup, basi...
