“Machete” Molds You Into a Badass in The Fight: Lights Out

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Nov 08, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

When we got our first beta build of The Fight: Lights Out, we were ecstatic to find that Danny Trejo was in it, starring as your trainer, Duke. You may not know the name, but you’ve probably seen this bad-ass in movies like Con Air, Machete, and From Dusk Til Dawn (where, as a vampire bartender, he was awesomely impaled with a cue stick).

So when we met him recently, it was a treat to find out that he’s not just some paid celebrity shill; he could pick up a pair of PlayStation Move controllers and wipe the floor with dudes in The Fight: Lights Out. And as a guy with some boxing experience – in prison no less – Danny had some fight tips to share with us.

The Fight: Lights Out is available tomorrow, exclusively for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Move. If you’re a fan of Mr. Trejo, stay tuned to our Twitter feed. Danny signed some posters for you PlayStation fans, and we’ll be giving them out soon.

I heard Danny Trejo is a big fan of GT 5 and that he demands a release date.

I just want you all to know that we here at PSN Store feel your frustration at not being told more about the release date of GT5. While I can not confirm the exact date that all of you will be able to purchase the game in store I can tell you that it will be released shortly after Xenogears is available for download in the PSN Store. I have been playing GT5 for the past 2 days here in SCEA PSN HQ and I can assure you it is worth the wait.

Deal with it.

Congratulations Sony, by outselling the Xbox 360, even though the MS console had a whole year head start !

You guys remember Danny in Heat??
He doesn’t look that much different since Heat.

+ streetice on November 8th, 2010 at 4:31 pm said:

They need to advertive this stuff on TV more offten, me telling people about in the stores (i work in retail) is all I can do.

P.S. Make target put the interactive displays back in all tagets! Its making it very hard to sell anything for any console.

+ polo155 on November 8th, 2010 at 5:30 pm said:

I hope it becomes available via PSN, i’d always rather download and play off hdd then off disk, i baby my BD Drive lol, Jeff i can see even u were buggin talkin to Danny lol meaning u were like smilin’ like this dude wild or something and the Blog vids in the Home Theater are good,

I always lke the blog vids in the Playstation Home Theaters, Great quality.

+ HijoDelLocoRoco on November 8th, 2010 at 5:44 pm said:

I agree. You might as well shut this blog down until you are ready to post the GT5 release date.

Get your act together, Sony. This is Amateur Hour stuff. You used to be good at product launches. You’ve kept us in the dark too long. The fans are upset, and you just pretend like you don’t hear us, which just upsets us more.

@36…head tracking was shown by PD over a year ago…it isn’t ‘news’.

@23…no, the PS3 has not outsold the 360 in total sales

As for this game…reviews have been less than stellar…which I don’t understand…if move is as accurate as advertised this type of game should have been a slam dunk to make.

Still waiting for the first ‘must have’ move game.

+ KSPRAYDAD on November 8th, 2010 at 5:48 pm said:

And Danny actually looked more nervous and uncomfortable than Jeff in his first video here on the blog.

Of course it isn’t new per se but it shows the function in a different environment.

Looks good, I’m def getting it. I understand motion controls better than most of those snarky reviewers out there.

Trejo is the man!! He was cool in Preators. cant wait to get the Fight!

Can’t wait to try this, nice to have Danny Trejo doing this.


36

+ ForgiveMyAim on November 8th, 2010 at 7:47 pm said:

Demo? tomorrow?


37

+ DABUNKER on November 8th, 2010 at 7:47 pm said:

This game has been getting lambasted in just about every review I’ve read, but I’m still interested in giving it a try. Most reviewers weren’t too keen on Wii boxing either, but I love it, and this looks to be an upgrade from there.


38

+ DABUNKER on November 8th, 2010 at 8:03 pm said:

Also I would like to get on the “where in the name of sweet holy monkey h3ll is GT5″ band wagon. Give us a release date. Preferably for tomorrow.

$40 seems like a great price for this game…I just wish I could play a demo before I end up inevitably picking it up tomorrow =/

@51 from what I saw it got better reviews than Medal of Honor =P

Damn this comes out on the same day as Black Ops!? I guess Black Ops will have to wait. Danny Trejo FTW!

LOL!!!! “If you see this symbol, you’re not doing it right cab***!” That made me laugh. I had no idea there would be cussing in that game, especially not spanish cussing.

Hey guys, have you been looking at Sony Style Online Shop ??
It shows there, release date set for november 30th.

Does Sony need to tell anything else ?

+ GTP_Zimmerd on November 9th, 2010 at 1:01 am said:

Please Sony,
right now we don’t want sema updates on your site.
I admit it’s nice you all do that ,
but please…
The only thing we want right now is a new release date.
Everybody is waiting for it.
Announce it already

+ Lugoves on November 9th, 2010 at 6:21 am said:

Jeff, Jeff Here … Not to be negative on the boards, I’m cautiously hesitant to pick up Lights out due to several negative reviews … IF there are really ‘Control’ issues … would we see a forthcoming patch for the game. I never know if reviewers are just too impatient to calibrate correctly or if their really easy an issue with a title. The first time I played the DEMO for Tumble it was horrid. I gave it another chance, and once I learned to press ‘o’ to recenter, and re-calibrated whenever it felt ‘off’ it was awesome and I bought the title. Any thoughts?

+ S-E-G on November 9th, 2010 at 7:12 am said:

i’ll pass on this one, i guess my move controllers will stay on the charger and collect more dust, but i did find another use for them, they make great night lights, can you guys at least code an app to launch on the ps3 to make them slowly change colors, also have the ps3 play nature sounds, (rain, waterfall, birds chirping, fireplace, etc..) and from the pseye mic, when it hears me snore, it would automatically shut down the ps3, thanks.

+ Dardantuan on November 9th, 2010 at 8:33 am said:

How come this game is not available anywhere? all the local stores I called never even got copies in, and it looks like even amazon and online retailers are ‘sold out’. was it’s release pushed back, or did you only press like 5 copies of the game?

man, I’ve been waiting for this one, can’t wait to play online!!!
