Nyko Data Bank 3.5-inch PS4 Hard Drive Dock and DualShock 4 Type Pad released in U.S.


Two Nyko products have been released for the PlayStation 4 in the United States region. One of which is the Data Bank, a hard drive dock that will let gamers use compatible 3.5-inch HDDs with Sony’s current-gen console. For the uninformed, the PS4 can only use 2.5-inch drives before the new accessory. If you are interested, you can purchase the Nyko Data Bank with this link on Amazon.

The PlayStation 4 launched with a 500 GB HDD (Sony is also rumored to be releasing a 1 TB version in the near future). Even so, the free space can quickly disappear when you consider that the game sizes are getting better. Not to mention that the retail discs are now required to be installed on the hard disk drive in order to run. When you also take into account the constant patch and DLC updates as well, then you will quickly realize how small 500 GB actually is.

The other new product release from Nyko is the Type Pad. This miniature keyboard is attached to the bottom of the DualShock 4 controller, providing an easy way to type out texts using your thumbs. If you are interested in the gamepad add-on, you can purchase it from the above-mentioned online retailer with this page.
