194w ago - Today Codejunkiestv has shared a video of the new Datel TiltFX device, which brings motion sensing to commercial games on Sony's PSP console.
Current commercial PSP games that support TiltFX include Need for Speed, Wipeout, Loco Roco and more using FX custom profiles.
The plug-and-play device itself features a 3-axis high resolution MEMS sensor and works on the PSP 1000, 2000 and 3000.
To quote: Tilt FX redefines the way you play, taking your games to the next level with super smooth 3 axis motion control at your fingertips.
Tilt FX works with all games and is perfect for racing games, platform classics, pinball and balance games, replacing the normal direction pad and analog stick with high resolution 'tilt' control, using the 3D movements of your PSP to actually control the game.
Customised FX profiles and stunning effects are also selectable for tons of the latest and greatest games like Wipeout, Loco Roco, F1,Need for Speed and many more. The Tilt FX 'G' sensor snaps into your PSP to provide seamless 3D game control so you can now Feel the Game.
Tilt FX is the first 3D motion control for the PSP:

Nintendo reportedly tried to develop games using camera-based sensors, but instead opted for accelerometers.
To quote: The Financial Times have this week revealed that Nintendo rejected the camera-based technology for the Wii.
The Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said that the company tried to develop games controlled by camera-based sensors but received better results using accelerometers eventually utilized in the Wii hardware.
As we saw at the E3 Conference earlier this week, Microsoft and Sony are both using camera technology to track gesture and movement-based controls in a three-dimensional space.
The Xbox 360's 'Project Natal' can perform full three-dimensional motion tracking and can scan items into the system. Whilst Sony's new motion controller is a lot like the Nintendo Wii's.
236w ago - Microsoft has unveiled Project Natal, which features a motion sensing camera.
Stephen Spielberg demoed it on stage and says it will recognize "your entire being".
Although it's "not reinventing the wheel because there's no wheel at all", Microsoft plans to make games as accessible as possible, as it will work with the Xbox Dashboard, recognizes your face, and signs you in automatically.
Games using the camera were demoed.
3D Breakout where body controls the ball, and you can move arms, legs, head and kick the ball and it detects the speed and power of the hit.
Comparing itself to the Wii, Microsoft says that this is done up off the couch, with Waggle commands.
Another demo called Paint Party uses body and voice to "express inner creativity" by splattering paint onto a canvas. Just say the color you want and the game adds it.
No date for the camera yet, but it's still being shown behind closed doors to developers.
