Looks like someone is taking a page out of the Wii controller book. I4U News has revealed that Qmotions is currently working a snowboard controller for the Xbox 360. The input device is being developed with the blessing of Microsoft, and will aim to provide realistic boarding action for any snowsports-related titles on the console, though there’s no word on specific title compatibility. Dubbed the “Big Air”, the board will plug into the Xbox via the USB jack and should work in tandem with a traditional handheld controller. Qmotion also hopes to bring controllers for golf, baseball, and other sports games to the console. Wii-fit, look out.
