French BigBen interactive offers the Bodypad that comes with a set of sensors to interact specifically with fight games like Tekken. The system comes with 2 elbow-sensors, 2 knee sensors, 2 handles, belt clip and a receiver box. The Bodypad works with the PS2 where it supports a ton of games and also with the Xbox, but the number of supported games is much lower. The Bodypad sells for about 50 Euros in Europe.
More details and demo videos on BigBen Bodypad site.
I have reported about Xavix from the CES 2005 which offers input devices that go in a similar direction. The Bodypad seems to be the most advanced though for virtual fighting.
The BODYPAD is fully compatiblewith Tekken™, Deador Alive™, Soul Calibur™, MortalKombat™, Dragon Ball Z™, Bloody Roar™, StreetFighter™, VirtuaFighter™, Athens 2004™ and many more.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
