E3 Preview of Next Generation Accessories
By Markkus Rovito
Next-generation video game consoles boast of all kinds of expandability options, but they come packaged with only the bare essentials as far as accessories go. That means add-ons to game consoles at the point of purchase are generally very healthy.
The top game accessory manufacturers plan to be ready for the planned launches of the Microsoft Xbox, and Nintendo Game Boy Advance and Game Cube later this year with a full complement of accessories from the get-go. They'll be demoing, displaying or announcing these accessories along with those for the PC and Sony Playstation 2 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2001.
