HYPERKIN LAUNCHES 3-PORT USB HUB THAT CONNECTS UP TO 3 ADDITIONAL CONTROLLERS TO THE SONY PLAYSTATION 3

Includes Card Slot that Accepts Variety of Memory Cards Including SD and Memory Sticks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ROSEMEAD, CA (April, 2010)– Hyperkin, a rapidly growing developer and distributor of video game accessories, has announced the launch of the PS3 3-Port USB Hub which connects three additional controller outlets to the PlayStation 3. In addition to the controller outlets, the 3-Port USB Hub has also been designed with a memory card slot that accepts SD cards, SDHC cards, MMC cards, and memory sticks. The PS3 Hub is also compatible with PS3 Slim and personal computers.

Hyperkin’s USB Hub is unique because it connects to the PS3 via an extension cable that plugs into one of the platforms two controller ports, thereby leaving the second port accessible while adding three new controller ports (the hub can also be attached directly to the PS3 without the extension cable). Now with the help of the USB Hub, the PS3 can accept 4 controllers.

Even better, the USB Hub is only $14.99 and is designed with a built-in memory slot to accommodate a host of memory devices.

Product Highlights

• Provides 3 additional controller ports (4 controller ports total when in use)

• Compatible with PS3, PS3 Slim and PC’s

• Built-in Memory accommodates SD cards, SDHC cards, MMC cards, memory sticks

• Includes optional 6’ USB Extension Cable

• SRP: $14.99

“This is a great product at a great price,” commented Steven Mar, Hyperkin’s Marketing Director.“Playing video games is a great social medium, particularly with unified online games. Our USB Hub offers easiest way possible to expand the amount of friends that can play together on the PS3 at one time.”
