Material gifts makes a person immensely happier than direct money. Psychology states that too. Like winning the psp pad [Come mr. postman, cant wait to try it :)].  :D

Prizes are nice but for large items like consoles, postage is expensive and there could be region protection or voltage problems.

Hi guys, i think about joining this competition after all the cool summer 2007 entrys.
I was wondering when we are allowed to start coding and if the game has to meet some criteria.
I m looking forward to this :)

You can start now or anytime.  The rules haven't been announced yet but I assume they will accept anything and more points if it supports motion.

Ok I just made up some sheet which holds up the whole plan for my PSP Game and how the network protocol works etc. However, if it comes to controls i m not sure:

I could add some basic control first using the analog stick, but seeing that there would be additional points for motion i would like to add this too, luckily i own  2 PSP allready (one slim and an old one) so i shouldnt have a problem adding that feature. But for doing this, i would like to see some video which shows what the api returns in some cases - if you shake the psp for example, if you rotate it etc.
I would really like to see such a video as i can't afford the motion sensor atm.
Also: is there any sound support for the motion? If not ill probably have a look at the sound drivers and think about hooking them in order to make them work. (Should be testable with the headphone-remote plugged in - right?)

I'm thinking about entering my first real game for the DS.

Do you guys think something like this would be worth entering?

As a good rule of thumb, absolutely anything is worth entering, weather it is your first program, of your forty second. As long as it is your own work.
 Good luck in the next competition.

Thanks for the info.  I wasn't sure if my first game would be at the same level as others in this competition.  Hopefully, it will be well polished by March 20th.
