A pinch of gaming here at the annual Consumer Electronics Show? Yeah, we'll take that. Nyko's just revealed a wheelbarrow full of new goods to pore over at this year's edition of the show, and we get the feeling that PlayStation Move owners will be particularly pleased with what's on offer. For the PS3, the outfit has revealed that its Raven Standard and Raven Alternative controllers are shipping now for $34.99 apiece, as is the 2- / 4-port charging station. Moving onto newer goods, the Power Shot for Move is a newfangled rifle attachment (seen above) for Sony's play on motion gaming, with an MSRP that's not quite final and a projected release date of March 2011. Moreover, there's a pistol-like Perfect Shot for Move (also shipping in March at a price that's TBD), and if you're looking for a similar charging solution for your Xbox 360, the Charge Base S will do just that for $24.99.

Comically enough, this year marks the return of the infamous Intercooler, but hopefully the STS version won't cause your Xbox 360 S to go up in smoke. For those who like to take chances, it'll hit retail next month for $19.99. Closing things out is the Perfect Shot Pro for Wii, which is a revamped version of the original Perfect Shot that features vibration support; it'll ship in April for right around $20. Head on past the break for the full release, or spend a few precious minutes digging into the eye candy below. Or both.

PlayStation 3
Raven Standard / Raven Alternate
The Raven, Nyko's premium controller for PS3, features Multi-Axis Technology for full motion support. It comes in two configurations – the Raven with Standard configuration is laid out identically to Sony's controller, and will be instantly familiar to PS3 gamers. In response to player demand, the Raven with Alternate configuration swaps the position of the left analog stick and directional pad, giving gamers the first-ever ergonomic alternative to Sony's layout. As the majority of modern games rely on the analog joystick, this is a great option for players seeking a more comfortable controller for gaming sessions.

MSRP (Standard): $34.99
MSRP (Alternate): $34.99

Charge Station for Move & Charge Station Quad for Move
Easily store and charge both the Move Motion controller and the Move Navigation controller at once. Or, with the 4-Port Charge Station, keep 2 sets of Move Motion controllers and 2 Move Navigation controllers ready for instant action. The convenient drop-and-charge design recharges the internal batteries in the Move controllers, while AC power allows for faster charging with no messy cables back to the console. LED Charge Indicator lights display the charge status, and both units sport a sleek design that will look great near your PS3.

Power Shot for Move
The Power Shot for PlayStation® Move is an ergonomic tactical rifle attachment. The Move Motion and Navigation controllers easily lock into place for a comfortable grip that provides for accurate trigger response and aiming. The removable and rotating Navigation Controller dock allows the player to hold the Power Shot in various configurations, making it ideal for left and right handed gamers. The tactile trigger replicates the Motion Controller button for smooth firing and the aiming sight increases the player's accuracy. The Power Shot also features an extendable stalk, allowing for utmost stability and precision during the most intense of action games.

Projected Release Date: March 2011

Perfect Shot for Move
A traditional one handed pistol-like grip for PlayStation® Move, the new Perfect Shot is the ideal shooting attachment for games that only require the Motion controller. Featuring a grooved dock into which the Motion Controller slides into place, the Perfect Shot is designed to be lightweight and ergonomic for comfortable one handed play. Vibration support provides force feedback with each trigger pull. The peripheral's shape affords unobstructed line of sight for the Motion controller glowing ball, thus allowing accurate and uninterrupted motion tracking.

Projected Release Date: March 2011

Xbox 360
Charge Base S
The new Charge Base S for Xbox 360 is a refresh of another one of Nyko's most popular products of all time. With a sleek redesign, the Charge Base S is a storage and charging dock for two Xbox 360 wireless controllers. The Charge Base S patented design features two custom NiMH rechargeable batteries that feature special contact points, allowing for an easy drop-in and charge solution. The dual port recharging dock is AC powered and plugs into any standard outlet. Each rechargeable battery powers the wireless controller for up to 25 hours and charges in about 2 hours. A hidden LED indicator on the Charge Base S illuminates when in use and indicates battery charge status.

The Charge Base S also features an additional new powered USB port, ideal for charging an additional controller, cell phone, iPod or other USB device.

MSRP: $24.99
Projected Release Date: March 2011

Intercooler STS
Utilize Nyko's cutting edge TempSmart™ technology to keep your Xbox 360 S console running at optimal environmental conditions with the Intercooler STS. The Intercooler STS provides increased airflow away from the Xbox 360 S, which allows the console to perform in a cooler, better ventilated environment, ideal for cramped entrainment centers. TempSmart technology automatically powers the Intercooler STS' fans on or off when needed, and continues to cool the console even after the system has been powered down. The Intercooler STS is powered by one of the Xbox's USB ports and requires no batteries or AC adapters. The slick new "scoop" design blends seamlessly with the design of the Xbox 360 S console and works in both the horizontal and vertical positions.

MSRP: $19.99
Projected Release Date: February 2011

Perfect Shot Pro
The descendant of the original Perfect Shot for Wii, one of Nyko's best-selling products of all time, the new Perfect Shot Pro for Wii is the refined evolution of the original Perfect Shot. The Perfect Shot Pro now features vibration support to provide force feedback with each pull of the trigger. The Perfect Shot Pro is the ideal peripheral for all shooting games on the Wii and comfortably houses a Wii controller. The tactile trigger activates the "B" button and an aiming sight improves player accuracy. The Perfect Shot Pro will also be available in camo and black/orange.

MSRP: $19.99
Projected Release Date: April 2011
