Sony’s to add PlayStation Eye and Cloud saving support to the PS3 version of Echochrome, according to Siliconera.
The game now allows players to use PS Eye to film themselves in-game. Replays with the picture-in-picture window can be saved to your hard drive or uploaded directly to YouTube.
The update’s happening on Thursday in Japan. No word on a western version yet.

The PS Blog brings word that Escher-inspired PS3 puzzler Echochrome’s been patched to include Trophies. Hoopla.
Better yet, 1,000 user-generated levels have also been added, meaning it now has enough content to keep you happy until you’re dead.

Update: Sorry, this was announced in the press conference last night. We missed it. The UMD is National Treasure 2.
According to this Kotaku story, Sony’s announced a new $200 PSP bundle for the American market.
The pack will include a silver PSP, Ratchet & Clank Size Matters, a UMD movie (title TBC), a voucher to download Echochrome and a 1Gb memory stick.
October release, apparently.

It’s already out in Japan and the US, obviously.

According to this US PlayStation blog post, 20 user-created Echochrome levels are to be posted on to the American PSN over the next week. There are some pictures over there of what look to be mind-bending creations. We’re almost glad Europe still doesn’t have a release date for the game.

Speaking in this this official US PLayStation blog post, Echochrome producer Kumi Yuasa has promised that user-created puzzles will be available to download for the puzzler, for free, on a regular basis. From Eurogamer:
The developers will hand-pick each batch, and they will be playable for as long as it takes the team to select and release a subsequent compilation.
To have your creation included, simply select “Canvas” from the main menu and tinker until you can play and complete your puzzle.
Once finished, pop to the portfolio menu and either “send” it to a friend or “upload” it to the developers. In the PSP version you can only “send” your levels Ad Hoc to friends.
More through the link. No release date for the Escher-inspired oddity as yet, but we’re hoping to hear something on a European release from the SCEE PlayStation Day in London later today.

According to the US PlayStation blog, Escher-inspired puzzler Echochrome is to be released for download for PS3 and PSP in the US today. No word on whether or not we’re going to be able to get this in Europe as well, but hope springs eternal. We’ll drop SCEE a line.

- Secret Agent Clank – June 25

According to Newsweek, Japanese puzzler Echochrome will not be released on UMD in the US.
“It will be coming to North America via the Playstation Network store only – i.e. not brick and mortar retail – with its own unique 56 levels,” it says here.
Still no firm release date for either the US or Europe. If it’s not going to make disc in the US you can bet your maiden aunt there’s no way it’ll be out on UMD in Europe. We’ll check anyway.

Here. Sony’s apparently confirmed a summer release for brain-twister Echochrome in America, but has said the PSP version is “up in the air” at the moment.
We’ve got no release date on this for Europe right now.

Nice trailer below for Japanese puzzle Echochrome, which should explain exactly wat it’s all about so we don’t have to. As reported yesterday, there’s a difference in price between the PSP and PS3 versions in Japan, because the PSP game has twice as much content in it than the PS3 one. Like, dur. No European release date on this yet.

The PSP version of Sony’s mind-bending puzzler Echochrome costs twice as much as the PS3 version in Japan, prompting the developer to explain that the PS3 version is merely a taste of the main event on PSP. According to this, the PSP game contains 100 puzzles over the PS3 version’s 50. So now you know.
Still no release date for this in the west.
