129w ago - US Producer Josh Miller has shared a video and news of a new PS3 patch and DLC information on The Fight: Lights Out today for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Today we're bringing you the first update to the game. This update resolves several small issues reported by players and includes the ability to make your fighter transparent in order to get a better view of your opponent.
If that weren't enough, you will now be able to use all of the boss characters as well as the main man, Duke, to use in both online and offline multiplayer modes as part of the Duke DLC pack.
The patch will soon be available to download when you start up the game and the Duke DLC will be available from PlayStation Store in December.
The Fight: Lights Out is a brand new type of fighting game. It puts your moves and your actions directly into the game, with an unprecedented level of freedom. Your own skill is the only limit.
But as with all great new things, there is, of course, some great new rules and details to learn. Freedom is better when you know what to do with it, so we've put together these little bonus tutorials to help everyone get to grips with this wholly new way to play fighting games.

129w ago - Ronimo Games Co-Founder Jasper Koning has posted up a video today announcing that Swords & Soldiers on PSN has added PlayStation Move support!
To quote: Just a few weeks ago, we released Swords & Soldiers for the PlayStation Network, and the response has been overwhelming!
The strategic action gameplay is being enjoyed by lots of gamers, offline as well as online. With 3 unique factions, 30 levels of gameplay, customizable skirmishes, 3 highscore arcade challenges and local and online multiplayer modes, there's lots of game to enjoy.
Now there's a whole new way to enjoy Swords & Soldiers... because we've added PlayStation Move support in our latest patch! Just connect a PlayStation Move to your PlayStation 3 and you will be able to navigate the menus and gameplay using the Move's cursor function.
You can also mix control schemes on a single PS3 as well as face off against people online with different control schemes. So far we have been unable to find any advantage for one over the other, but if you find any, let us know!
Speaking of balance, we've also done a few small tweaks to the balance between the three factions. Most importantly, we've made the Vikings slightly stronger in the endgame and the...

To quote: It's somehow almost Christmas, even though it feels like about a week since I didn't really get anything I wanted last year ("A whisk! Thanks, darling") and I haven't yet filled my amazon wishlist with expensive boxsets I'll never have time to watch.
But it does mean that FirstPlay is experiencing its first ever December, with episode 35 hitting the store on Wednesday the 1st.
The big news this week is that, to celebrate the release of the actually rather good Def Jam Rapstar, we sent Official PlayStation Magazine's foolishly game news editor Rachel Weber to become a real rapper under the tutelage of hip hop up-and-comer XO man. See how she got on in our exclusive feature.
We also do our square-jawed damnedest to catch up on all the games of 2010 we've not reviewed so far, including Rock Band 3, DJ Hero 2, PDC World Championship Darts (whoo!) and a big slice of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
We also take a look at blockbusting marvel Inception on Blu-ray, show you how we got on with our first hour on Killzone 3's multiplayer, countdown our favourite local co-op games (that's splitscreen and screensharing, rather...
