133w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has made available a video spotlighting The Fight: Lights Out for PlayStation Move on PS3 today.
To quote: On November 9th you will finally have your opportunity to infiltrate the dark under belly of the city streets and fight your way through merciless opponents that will stop at nothing to keep you from being the top bare-knuckle boxer in The Fight: Lights Out.
Only with the power and precision of the PlayStation Move can you truly unleash uppercuts, elbows and even vicious dirty moves like the Bullcharge, Double Hammer and Elbow Hook with true 1:1 game play.
But don't take my word for it, PlayStation's own Executive Producer, Kyle Shubel gives us a quick jab to the gut when he reveals what you'll expect the moment you first plunge into The Fight: Lights Out in the video below.
Keep an eye out for Danny Trejo. He's Duke, your trainer in The Fight: Lights out. Jeff interviews him, and it's pretty great -- stay tuned for that video next week.
133w ago - Today TheGameHeadz.com (linked above) reports that a Rep revealed Sony's PS3 backwards compatibility plans to them at a recent press event.
While they didn't reveal their informant's name, a few months ago a patent for an adapter to make PS3 backwards compatible was uncovered.
To quote: "It was clear from our conversation that Sony likes the idea of backwards compatibility, but hadn't come to a conclusion until recently, on how to incorporate it.
The decision Sony finally came to is the one already in play, HD remastering.
"Remastering didn't come up until about two years ago. For a developer, remastering in HD took a moderate amount of time and effort to achieve, and with the right title it could be very successful. Once we noticed the benefits of HD remastering, the decision was made to use God of War 1 & 2 as the test for the market, and they delivered.
The God of War Collection had reached almost a million copies sold just after the holiday. Shortly aftter that Activision, EA, UbiSoft, Konami, and SquareEnix were all on board to issue ReMastered Edition of their best Playstation 2 Games."
He went on to say doing backwards compatibility...
