Hyperkin to Launch Dance Platform


Hyperkin, a gaming hardware developer based in Rosemead, CA, has announced that they will be launching a new dance platform (basically a dance-pad, but heavy duty) at E3 2010, called the DDR Game Tough Non-Slip Dance Platform.

It will be built of a material that is designed to prevent curling at the edges and will feature "intelligent groove-texture", which I take to mean some sort of slip-proof grip on the arrows. Additionally, it will feature a 4-in-1 multi-platform connector, making the DDR Game compatible with PSX, PS2, Xbox, Nintendo Wii, PC and Mac right out of the box. There will also be an optional adapter that makes the DDR Game Dance Platform compatible with the PS3, as well. Note, however, it is not compatible with the Xbox 360.

Product Highlights:

  • High grade EVA dancing surface significantly reduces surface tearing
  • Curl-resistant dance surface prevents dance mat edges from curling upwards
  • Foldable pad for easy travel and storage
  • Microfiber non-slip material prevents mat from sliding on carpet or hardwood floor
  • Intelligent groove-texture arrows allow players to differentiate steps on the dance surface
  • Groove-texture arrows give players a greater sense of awareness and coordination
  • Groove-texture arrows soothe sore and tired feet
  • Multi-platform 4-in-1 connector - compatible with Playstation, Playstation 2, Xbox, PC/Mac and Nintendo Wii (not compatible with Xbox 360)
  • Suggested Retail Price: $69.99 USD
  • 37" x 33" x 1/4" high
  • 6 foot long cord

We'll be checking it out at E3 next week, so check back for a hands, um... feet-on report soon.
