Modular Controller Attachment Adds Ergonomic Keyboard to DUALSHOCK 4
LOS ANGELES – July 30, 2015 – Leading console accessories manufacturer Nyko Technologies today announced the release of the Type Pad for PlayStation® 4, a full QWERTY keyboard attachment that snaps onto the bottom of a DUALSHOCK® 4 controller. The Type Pad helps gamers seamlessly input text and provides a mini-analog nub for quick menu navigation, as well as “.com” and “@” shortcuts for easy e-mail address and URL input. Ending a game with “GG” has never been easier! The Type Pad for PS4 is available now for MSRP $29.99 on GameStop, Amazon, Nyko’s official website, and other select retailers.
“With the rise of game streaming and eSports, gaming has never been more collaborative and communicative,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “For that, we wanted to create a tool that would let on-screen navigation and multiplayer communication on consoles become as effortless as it is on a PC, all with consideration for the DUALSHOCK 4’s ergonomics.”
The Type Pad for PS4 can be charged simultaneously with the controller using any standard micro-USB cable, and can also be switched on and off at will to conserve battery.
