    Hey folks, just picked up an 16gb Ipod Touch yesterday, and am loving it so far.

    Only one issue. I got the Need for Speed: Undercover game, and in order to drive straight, I need to hold the Touch tilted about 10 degrees to the left. Its kinda weird...doesn't feel right at all.

    I admit, I haven't tried other games to see if they do it too, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Is there a fix? Should I return it and get another if its a consistant problem through other apps?

    I have tried holding it completely parallel to the ground, as well as varied angles to see if its just the way I'm holding it, but it always has to be tilted to the left to be level and drive straight.

    It is probably a little bug in the iPod.
    Hopefully it will be fixed next firmware.

    Hmmm, like what eladc mentioned, it could be a bug in the tilt calibration... I don't face this problem when playing Labyrinth, Fastlane, or Crash Nitro Karts though...
