    Yes folks, you heard it right. Datel has announced TiltFX, a revolutionary 3D motion control for the PlayStation Portable that promises to deliver real ‘Tilt’ control using the 3D movement of your handheld. The device features a ‘G’ sensor that provides "super smooth 3 axis motion control, high resolution MEMS accelerometer and powerful microprocessor that are designed to detect the motion of you PSP as you move creating a revolutionary way to play your PSP games." According to the company:

    TiltFX for the PSP is now available at your local video game retailers for a suggested retail price of US$ 19.99 or £ 14.99.

    Why not? Datel did alot of hacking-related stuff. Without them, we wouldn't advance as much as we have done. Think of AR and PSP Tool batteries.

    NO!!

    If you would have simply watched the video you would have seen that it is clearly plugged into the headset/headphone jacks.

    Wasn't there another motion sensor for the PSP that plugged into the mic/headphone ports? I don't think it was every sold (I could be wrong), since I think someone just created one of their own.

    Too bad this isn't 1st Party, so Sony won't ever really use it.
