Announced at CES, Nyko will be releasing a few accessories that will fit the Slim PS3, in which most are updated version of accessories used for the fatty. Up first, as pictured above, is the new and improved Media Hub, which doubles the USB ports, adds in an SD Card reader and, get this, a remote control you can use to navigate Blu-Rays and DVDs (you can’t power the system on with it, though).
What’s really cool, since it uses an RF output, you’re able to program many Universal Remotes to work with the device as well. To keep it in it’s place, it uses both of the USB ports on the front. It will be released this April for the price of $25, which is quite a deal considering the Blu-Ray Bluetooth remote itself is about $20!
Also to be released is an updated version of Nyko’s Intercooler system, which fits flush with the design of the system and also has the same finish for a sleeker, more form fitting design, and features 2 speeds for the cooling fans as well. This will be released in February for $20.
And finally, Nyko also unveiled it’s new vertical stand for the system, which increases its stability when you stand it up. It looks to have a glossy 3D checkerboard finish. The stand will be released in March for $15. One thing I’m not sure about, though, is does the vertical stand have provisions to allow for the Intercooler?
