As wonderfully ergonomic the Xbox 360 controller may be, it
lacks a feature that Wii and PlayStation 3 controllers have: motion control. But
thanks to a third-party modification, the Xbox 360 controller will sense
tilting motions and translate them into movement in-game.
Talismoon’s motion sensing upgrade, called the Tiltboard,
is a circuit board loaded with ICs and solder points much like those forbidden modchips andmust be placed inside the controller casing and requires the soldering of seven
wires. The Tiltboard senses motion in a similar way that it does on the
PlayStation 3’s SIXAXIS controller and maps it to the controller’s right analog
The modification adds two buttons on the back of the
controller, which are used to control various functions. For example, the tilt
maybe enabled or disabled, along with adjusting the sensitivity, angle and
As the Tiltboard is an unsupported controller modification,
it is unlikely at any game developers will tool their software specifically to
support this aftermarket motion control.
