Vector Unit Teams Up with Nyko for Playpad Giveaway

Guess who's the Nyko Playpad Game of the Week this week? That's right, it's our very own Beach Buggy Blitz!

Over the last couple of years we've had a chance to sample a lot of different Bluetooth gamepads for mobile devices. Two of our very favorites are the Nyko Playpad and Playpad Pro. Both of these controllers are durable and well made, with great-feeling joysticks and buttons and long lasting batteries. Best of all they offer support for multiple standard formats, like iCade on iOS and the standard HID on Android (which means they'll work with ANY game that supports controller inputs on Android 3.0 or higher.)
