PS3 gets Kinect-like Kung-Fu game

Plus: LBP2 demo! Alien Breed 2! New deals!

There's a curiosity on the PlayStation Store today: a PlayStation Eye game called Kung-Fu Live!.

It's nothing to do with PlayStation Move and looks more akin to something you'd find made for Kinect.

The PlayStation Eye scans your person and transports a mini-you into a side-scrolling world. The gestures you perform relate to super-moves in the game, so if you hold your hands above your head, your character does a multi-metre high back flip; or lift your knee to execute a sliding power-knee attack. The videos on the PlayStation website make it look, well, fun - and responsive.

Other full games arriving today include Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves (only for PS Plus subscribers - everyone else gets it next week) - the Move-enabled 10-level demo for LittleBigPlanet 2 - and Team17's Alien Breed 2: Assault.

Look out for the new outfits for Super Street Fighter IV, the Hazardous add-on for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and the Medal of Honor cheat I mean shortcut Pack 2, too.

Today's full PlayStation Store update, courtesy of the European PlayStation Blog, is listed below this video.
