PlayStation Move Fighting Game Gets Name

Fist, meet face!

One of the more appealing games for the PlayStation Move that I’ve personally seen came in the form of a no-named good-looking brawler shown at this year’s Game Developers Conference. Why it wasn’t named at that point beats me; but as of now, the motion fighter has been given a title. Something that’s right to the point – literally.

According to the game’s producer John McLaughlin, writing on the PlayStation blog, the monochrome fighter will be called The Fight: Lights Out. Pretty much to the point in both name and objective, I’d say.

“We’ve conducted a ton of motion capture to ensure that every punch, every hit reaction, every dirty move and every hard-hitting knockout makes the player feel right in the thick of the action,” he promised. According to McLaughlin, you’ll be able to “throw punches with total precision”, using the PlayStation Move controller to pull of jabs, hooks, uppercuts and even a “two-handed ear drum burst”.

“This is The Fight: Lights Out, and you can fight any way you want to – just make sure you win!” McLaughlin added.

I can fight any way I want to, huh? Well, I’m a dirty fighter, personally, and would ask Sony to consider making motion-based controllers for the mouth and the legs as I would be biting the hell out of my opponents, and kicking them in the nuts and shins. Everyone knows how much it hurts to get kicked in the shin, and everyone knows just how dirty biting can be. I think I’m going to patent that idea – “PlayStation Orifice.”
