Nyko wins the gaming category

CES 2008 Nyko Technolgies, the third party peripheral manufacturer known for the intercooler products for 7th gen consoles, has won 'The Best of CES award' for their new wireless Nunchuck controller for Wii.

Using a dongle that attaches to the bottom of the Wii Remote, the Wireless Nunchuck features full accelerometer support for motion-based gameplay and is compatible with all games that require the Nunchuck controller attachment. The Nunchuck's ergonomic design is perfect for both left and right-handed players. Two AAA Batteries (included) provide up to 30 hours of gameplay. The Wireless Nunchuck for Wii will be available in the first quarter of 2008.

Mi< "The nomination for CNET's 'Best of CES' award was an honor in itself, but taking home the award for the gaming category is an even greater privilege," said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. "Winning this prestigious award showcases how highly consumers and the tech community think of Nyko's commitment to advancing gameplay technologies."

"Chosen from hundreds of products at CES, Nyko's Wireless Nunchuck for Wii demonstrates the creativity, excellence and vision that sets the standard in gaming," said Jai Singh, editor-in-chief of CNET and senior vice president for Content Development. "The 'Best of CES' awards brings together the top consumer electronics that will impact the coming year for consumer electronics."

The ten categories included digital photo and video, car tech and GPS, cell phones and smart phones, computers and hardware, emerging technologies, gaming, home audio, home video, MP3 and portable video players, and televisions.

Not sure if this will be a good thing though. It's just extra batteries to worry about.

Will we still be able to use the motion+ add on when its launched with one of these? I'd love to have a wireless nunchuck but thats quite a sizeable add on to the wiimote.
