1. A system for a user to play a video game, comprising:

  • a first hand-held communication device comprising;

    a transmitter for transmitting signals;

    a receiver for receiving signals; and

    an output device;

    an array of receiving devices remote from the first hand-held communication device for detecting ultrasonic signals emitted by the first hand-held communication device;

    a processing system, remote from the first hand-held communication device, and in electrical communication with the array of receiving devices, adapted to wirelessly receive the signals transmitted by the transmitter, to determine movement information for the first hand-held communication device, to determine position information for the first hand-held device, and to send data signals to the first hand-held device to provide feedback data to the user;

    wherein the movement information of the first hand-held communication device controls the movement of at least one object in a computer generated virtual environment; and

    wherein the first hand-held communication device is adapted to receive and process the received data signals and generate sensory stimuli for the user based on the received data signals and delivered through the output device.
