Tilt-sense hax make DS and PSP go-go

Let’s see: PSP-styled digital nubs on a DS, PS2 sticks on a PSP (heck the only thing missing is plugging the Xbox 360 guide button into either and we’ve got ourselves a three-way haxfest… er, forget I said that). And grandpasmurf of AcidMODS informs us of more cross-pollination going on in the control department. This time, he’s plugging in a couple of motion sensors/accelerometers onto the DS and PSP so that they can be played like a SIXAXIS.

Yes, SIXAXIS. For those of you who want a Wiimote, find an IR sensor and bar to include in the package.

The demo unit is a DS Lite, but you will note that it plugs through a mini-USB port, so grandpasmurf says it can definitely be used with the PSP, too. Absent of any other details from grandpasmurf – hey, pay us a visit and drop us the 411, if you can – we can speculate that the said mini-USB port wires to the D-pad, similar to the Ghetto Joystik/Ben Heck PSP analog mods.

Other than that, well, we can offer little else in the way of detail. Like we said: grandpasmurf, anytime you want to drop a line, our Comments section is always open. And one other thing: we wonder if this means we’ve got some Wiidiots who’re about to turn the DS (or the PSP) into Flying Game Controllers of Doom (TM). Oh noes.

Besides grandpasmurf, thanks also to luke for the heads-up! Now heads down! Flying handheld incoming!
