Nyko Booth at E3 2010 and hands on with their new controller line up

We were lucky enough to score a sit down with Nyko as they showed us their new line up of raven controllers and Sony’s Move chargers.

Raven for Sony PlayStation 3
The Raven, Nyko’s premium controller for PS3, features Multi-Axis Technology for full motion support. It comes in two configurations – the Raven Standard Configuration laid out identically to Sony’s controller, and will be instantly familiar to PS3 gamers.

In response to player demand, the Raven Alternate Configuration swaps the position of the left analog stick and directional pad, giving gamers the first-ever ergonomic alternative to Sony’s layout. As the majority of modern games rely on the analog joystick, this is a great option for players seeking a more comfortable controller for gaming sessions.

Charge Station and Charge Station Quad and for Move
Easily store and charge both the Move Motion controller and the Move Navigation controller at once. Or, with the 4-Port Charge Station, keep 2 sets of Move Motion controllers and 2 Move Navigation controllers ready for instant action. The convenient drop-and-charge design recharges the internal batteries in the Move controllers, while AC power allows for faster charging with no messy cables back to the console. LED Charge Indicator lights display the charge status, and both units sport a sleek design that will look great near your PS3.

Core Controller for Sony PlayStation 3
The Core Controller features fully analog face buttons and joysticks for accurate and responsive gameplay. The dual vibration motors will shake and rattle with the action giving you full immersive feedback with your games. With its 9-foot USB cable, the Core Controller provides lag-free response time, and with its trigger styled shoulder buttons your finger will easily stay put with every pedal to the metal moment in your favorite action or racing games. The Core Controller is the ideal hardware for those who want the most accurate controller, response and ergonomics for their PlayStation 3 at the most affordable price possible.

Though usually people shy away from third party accessories like controllers these are very well crafted and feel right in your hands and very light,  i highly recommend these to everyone looking to pick up a new controller.
