The PlayStation Vita may not have the electric longevity to replace your portable music player, but Nyko figures there's no good reason it can't take up the role of rocking your bedroom. The accessory outfit's stereo speaker charging dock for the Sony's fledgling handheld hasn't changed much since we saw it at CES, save for the fact that it's available now. $30 turns your Vita into the most overpowered alarm clock (assuming you download the upcoming app from the PSN store) your nightstand has ever seen. What of the PS Vita Power Grip? A Nyko representative tell us it's on the way, but doesn't have anything to announce at this time. Read on for the charging dock's official press release.

Nyko Ships Speaker Stand for PlayStation Vita

Stereo Charging Dock for Vita In GameStop Stores Now

LOS ANGELES – April 24, 2012 – Nyko Technologies®, the leading videogame peripherals manufacturer, is now shipping the Speaker Stand for PS Vita, the latest in its line of accessories for the handheld console. The stand is
a charging dock featuring stereo speakers that keep your Vita ready for action while offering dynamic sound for music and movies. Unveiled at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Speaker Stand for PS Vita
is available now at GameStop retail locations.

The Speaker Stand for PS Vita is a powered speaker that doubles as a charging dock. The stereo sound makes it perfect for movies and music, while the line-in jack accommodates iPods and other devices. Its sleek aesthetic matches the Vita, which snaps securely onto the dock and stays charged through the Vita's own AC adaptor.

"We're incredibly excited for the Vita, as it offers console-caliber gameplay on the go," said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. "We wanted to create a Vita accessory that adds ease of use while also augmenting its key features, which is what we have done with the Speaker Stand."

Speaker Stand for PS Vita has an MSRP of $29.99 and may be purchased at GameStop locations across the United States.
