Thought that big honking box under the tree was a PSP? Psyche! It's an iControlPad, the gaming add-on Casey linked up back in August that makes your iPhone pretty much the same size! Says TUAW:

Engadget thinks they need some official Apple support, but all they'll really need is developer support in the App Store (they say they already have strong support from the jailbreak folks).

That may be so, but we wonder if apps that include hooks to accept controls from this thing would technically be considered to be trying to access the dock port, a no-no. So it 's got an uphill climb to face -- at least it won't doing it looking as naked as the above photo suggests. The final production models will be black.

Any hard-core iGamers out there eagerly anticipating this d-pad and button-strewn power up?
