Innovative Product Offerings Fuel Growing International PresenceLos Angeles
Nyko Technologies ®, a premier peripherals manufacturer, today announced that they have added to their rapidly growing number of international distributors, giving gamers around the world access to their innovative suite of video gaming products.
A truly global company, Nyko strives to bring its suite of products to gamers around the world. The company recently signed distribution deals with France-based INELLEC MULTIMEDIA and United Kingdom-based Gem Distribution. Both deals will put Nyko’s innovative products on the shelves of gaming retailers in each respective country, including the best selling Intercooler for 360 and PS3, as well as the Wireless Sensor Bar and Charge Station for Wii.
As Nyko looks to expand on the global availability of products, it continues to see stellar success in North America. The Intercooler for 360 is currently one of the top selling accessories for the Xbox 360, while Nyko’s Charge Station for the Wii continues to sell extremely well to gamers looking for reliable and cost-effective charging solutions for their innovative new console (NPD, April 2007). With products available for each next-generation console, gamers have unprecedented choice when it comes to gaming accessories, whether they’re looking for charging options, controllers, and other regionally localized products that enhance their gaming experiences.
“Nyko has always been committed to providing gamers not only in the US, but also the world, with access to the most innovative peripherals for video gaming and digital lifestyles,” said Scott Berlin, VP of International Sales at Nyko Technologies. “Our new agreements with INELLECT MULTIMEDIA and Gem Distribution demonstrate this vision and we look forward to forging ahead and establishing the Nyko brand in even more countries and territories around the globe.”
Nyko will be on hand at the Leipzig Games Convention in Germany from August 23rd through August 26th. At the show, Nyko will display to gamers and consumers from across Europe their latest products, as well as sneak peeks of exciting new technology just around the corner.
