Nyko Launches Three NVIDIA SHIELD Accessories – a Power Kit, SHIELD Link, and Hardshell Case

Nyko, an accessories maker geared towards mobile gaming, announced three new accessories for the SHIELD mobile gaming console from NVIDIA. The accessories include a new Shell Case, perfect for absolute protection of your SHIELD. While NVIDIA sells their own cases, a few folks might call them overpriced at $39.99, but Nyko’s are just $12.99. 

Next up is a Power Kit, which is sort of like a backup set of cords and adapters to make sure your SHIELD never goes without a charge while at home, while traveling, or even in the car on a road trip. The kit includes one AC adapter, one car adapter and one extra-long Micro USB cable with Velcro strap. The Power Kit is on sale for just $19.99.

Lastly, there is the SHIELD Link, which plugs into the mini-HDMI port, then allows you to mirror the screen onto any HDMI enabled TV or Monitor in full 1080p resolution. According to Nyko, the HDMI interface also allows for full surround sound support. Price for the SHIELD Link is set at only $9.99.

To check out the new accessories for your NVIDIA SHIELD, head to Nyko’s site .

    Regardless of the fact that this article doesn’t benefit most Handheld Gamers, I think that we can all agree that most NVIDIA Shield peripheral and accesories were overpriced to begin with; of course the $300 initial pricetag did more to turn people away, that and no worthwhile exclusives.

    Ok srslt who the He** us buying these dammed shields?

      What’s wrong with them? At $200 with the purchase of a graphics card, it’s a much better deal now than at launch. The list of home streaming PC titles is growing, and the beta of GStream is pretty promising. On top of that, the new beta of XBMC has support for hardware acceleration on it making it a decent portable video player without the need to transcode, and rumor is that the Ouya app is coming as well. I’m building a new system next month, and I’m planning on grabbing one.

    So the Link is a mini-HDMI cable then?

    • Jeremy Turnley

      Yep. At least they are only charging triple the Monoprice price for it. 😛

    Oh look, another Shield article that gets no attention.

    To put the lid on the interview, Rohde confirmed that Sony Santa Monica will continue to work on a major, triple-A games. “I have no problem saying that there is a huge internal development team,” Rohde stated. “So, of course, that’s something Santa Monica will always be working on… There will always be an XDEV element, and there will always be an internal development element at Santa Monica.” http://num.to/5177*8826*7842
