SplitFish Ships Motion Adapter for Sony Playstation

SplitFish GameWare Inc today announced delivery of its MotionFX Adapter for the Sony Playstation 1 and 2 to GameStop retail locations across North America.

The MotionFX clips onto a Sony controller and allows game players to enjoy over 5,000 PS1 & PS2 games simply by tilting the controller in the desired direction.

We have overcome the major difficulties of the controller force feedback motors affecting the motion control. This allows the MotionFX to operate smoothly when combined with the Sony controller. Television sensor strips are not required.

To date, we have filed 4 critical patents on our various adapter technologies and will continue to leverage these technologies on choice consoles only. Our fan base has asked us to support the Nintendo Wii
however based on our own internal studies we report that the Wii has slightly more performance than a GameCube but less than the original xBox. The Wii is therefore unable to support our adapter technologies.

It's clear that as the Playstation 3 now plays over 5,000 PS1, PS2 and PS3 game titles and continues to ramp up its library of true high definition games the PS3 will dominate the future of mature games. SplitFish will therefore continue working with Sony consoles for several new technologies, including our multi-directional and non-uniform force-feed back technology that improves on the older style force feedback vibration systems.

About SplitFish:

SplitFish is a developer of significant video game hardware technologies that include the highly popular EyeFX 3D Adapter, the EdgeFX Competition controller, the GlideFX, and the DualFX Laser gun. These products make up our high quality line and exclusive FX GameWare series of products. Further information can be found on the corporations website at http://www.splitfish.com.

The comment about the Wii being not powerful enough is stupid. First the attachment is being used on a PS2/PS1. Who cares if the Wii is not as powerful as the Xbox or slightly more powerful than the GameCube. All we care about is that the Wii is more powerful than the GameCube which is MORE powerful the PS2.

So it should work. Why resort to making yourself sound stupid to hide the actual truth is beyond me.

Yeah, that was totally unecessary. Splitfish sounds like a bunch of fanboys.

Legend of legaia with trophies and my mind will be blown away. I like the sly addition, but I had the hd collection since ps3 so this wasn’t a surprise to me really, but extremely welcomed since I’m a huge sly fan.

1nsomniac20h ago(Edited 20h ago)

Meh..

I’d take the new inclusion of PSVR2 titles over this, hands down.

I'll buy Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but Tomb Raider: Legend & Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus have better versions on PS3.

Driv3r, a Twenty Year Reunion

WTMG's Leo Faria: "Was Driv3r one of the first truly overhyped games in history? One of the first games incessantly covered by press pre-launch, only to end up being the complete opposite of what it promised once it finally arrived onto store shelves? It’s worth discussing. Then again, hindsight is 20-20; it’s easy to laugh at the fact it was once touted to be a GTA killer, but there were just half a dozen GTA clones back then, and we didn’t have YouTube or other reliable video players to properly check how a game played before actually buying it. Maybe Driv3r was a victim of its own hype, a troubled project made by people who didn’t want it to be too similar to Grand Theft Auto itself. But it sucked then, and it still sucks now. Not even the rosiest of nostalgia goggles can save this one."

It's a shame they tried to copy GTA, they were terrible at it. If they'd doubled down on making the driving the star they could still be going now.

Underrated? J&D was one of the most popular IPs at the time, quite literally the face of the ps2 beside God of War

Outside_ofthe_Box6d ago

Would love to see a open world Jak 4 on the PS5, would be amazing, but I know ND said they'd never do it.

purple1016d ago (Edited 6d ago )

apparently there is a movie being made. I just cant get my head around what Sony is doing recently,

In regards to cancelling twisted metal game, when they push ahead with series 2 of the tv show, surely she show is meant to promote the game, where the real profits can be made.

Now we hear of a Jan and daxter film, (an old ps2 game) but NO new game to go with it,

mind boggles:

Sony Pictures, PlayStation Productions Releases & In Production:

-HBO: The Last Of Us Season 1

I wasn't aware that ND said they'd never do it...

I know they said it would difficult for them to go back to it after doing super high fidelity, gritty, realistic stuff like Last of Us but I didn't think they'd ruled it out completely.

Outside_ofthe_Box5d ago

They didn't say never, but was basically what they said. They actually tried making a new Jak, but what they were making was straying far from it's roots so they canned it. They're just in a different mindset when it comes to developing games compared to when they made Jak.

Jak and dexter is known franchise Sly Cooper was more hidden one tbh.

darthv725d ago

...and he was trying to stay hidden because he was a thievius racoon.

Demetrius5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Seeing jak&d left in the past like that really makes me appreciate nintendo even more for atleast keeping mario, zelda, metroid, and others around while making em still feel fresh, Playstation should have another gem besides astroboy and ratchet&clank

gold_drake5d ago

i wouldnt call jack and daxter underrated.

its a beloved franchise that pretty much was one of the biggest games on the ps2 and psp
