We have some exciting news now for all you Xbox 360 gamers out there who own a copy of the Def Jam Rapstar game and a Kinect device, as we have just learned that Konami has recently released an update that adds Kinect support to the popular rapping game.

According to Andy Robinson over at, players can now use their webcam-style peripheral to record videos of all their performances. If they want to, they can even upload all the best ones to the Def Jam Rapstar community.
