Kung-Fu Live
Kung-Fu Live To Turn You Into a Living Weapon

Using the PlayStation Eye, Kung-Fu Live is a motion-controlled game wherein you actually high kick and punch your way through bad guys with nary a control pad in sight.

Scanning your body and placing you in the game, Kung-Fu Live uses Freemotion technology to map full motion body movements. You're then boosted with additional superhuman abilities like flips, high jump kicks, bullet time and even lightning that you can shoot from your hands.

No real martial arts skills are required - despite the flying kicks the guy in the video pulls off - and it might even get you into shape. Teemu Maki-Pattola, CEO of developer Virtual Air Guitar writes on the PlayStation Blog: "I lost about four pounds in four days playing the game for an hour a day. For once, I’m ready for the beach before the summer starts!"

No doubt some players will get carried away, and fly kick their TVs through a wall. Check out the brief trailer, the prepare for Kung-Fu Live, which is due to release on PSN later in the year.

I agree. This is like the Star Wars saber fighting game for Wii. Great concept using the Wiimote as a light saber, but beware of my dreaded force saber wiggle tactics!!! But who knows, it may actually be pretty awesome. *shrugs*

It's natal without natal. Really there isn't anything too far from what eyetoy or the playstation eye hasn't already done or been demoed to do.

Its a fairly new development. Sony hasn't had that much time to develop resources for it. I'm sure they are thoroughly researching the possibilities of a profitable return before investing millions into R&D for this. Wii is pretty stiff competition for motion games, and most PS3 gamers have very high expectations in terms of graphics and gameplay. Sony is looking to please the hard-core, adult-minded gamers, not younger children who like Sponge Bob.
