TechRadar had an interview with OCZ and heard the firm is considering to develop a version of their Neural Impulse Actuator (NIA) for consoles:
In a meeting today with TechRadar, Tobias Brinkmann - director of marketing at OCZ - told us that the company is actively looking into the possibility of developing the NIA for use with the leading consoles.

"It's definitely something we are looking into," he said. "The thing we think would be most cool is to get the NIA working with the Nintendo Wii - that would be good. But of course it would be great if we could get it working with all the consoles."

Brinkmann revealed that in the past Microsoft has attempted to acquire the NIA technology from OCZ, but the offer was turned down flat. Microsoft has clearly seen the potential that this technology has.
