The Toybox production received a debut trailer yesterday from Natsume. Nobuo Uematsu has been confirmed to be working on the soundtrack for the game. Be sure to check it out!
So awhile back, a special motion-controlled Hydra controller got released that came with a motion-controlled level of Portal 2. Well, Valve are releasing that level on the PS3 later this year with support for the Playstation Move. You’ll be able to manipulate objects in the environment using this special motion controller to solve the insane spatial puzzles.
Unfortunately, XBox 360 owners will be left out with no DLC. I suppose the Kinect just isn’t able to mimic the motion controls necessary to play.
