Well, they have managed to run 3rd party code on retail psps by their (in)famous updater-like cheat program... Very unlikely someone would like to mess with the battery-stuff to use it. (they had chance with the motion kit)
Sony is so bonehead... they didn't make full size vkybd in psp for ages.. asking for hardware expansion seems a bit crazy
So even though the hardware was already available (the flash tilt) the compatability for unhacked psp's probably wasn't, whereas Datel will have been able to pack abit of software in there that will give greater compatability with games for psp's that haven't been flashed.
As for why Sony didn't think to release this as a first party peripheral is anyones guess...
Why are we only seeing this now? Why didn't SONY think of this years ago. I suppose it is a way of keeping the PSP fresh but I'm afraid its too little too late. We need new hardware, where is the PSP2 or PSP Phone?
