To quote: Finally! Grandia will be available for download on the North American PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 and PSP this Thursday for $9.99!
Since the title launched on the Japanese PlayStation Network in April of 2009, we have received many inquiries about the North American launch.
And it wasn't so easy to keep our lips zipped under such circumstances, but the day has finally come! Well, let me tell you a bit about the game.

169w ago - SCEA Santa Monica Producer Tsubasa Inaba has revealed alongside a video that Echoshift is coming to PS3 and PSP via PSN this week.
To quote: We're here to announce that Echoshift is releasing on the PlayStation Network this Thursday, February 25! This innovative puzzle game will bring a fun and refreshing style of gameplay to PlayStation Portable fans of all ages.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the title already, Echoshift is a spin-off of the PSN hit echochrome, and shares a similar artistic design. The soundtrack to the game was composed by a new group and elegantly sets the pace for the unique game play.
Echoshift features a new challenge for gamers to learn how to interact with your past actions. The game is based on solving the puzzles and gimmicks in each level to reach the exit, but within a short or limited amount of time.
You'll have to think quickly to overcome obstacles, and the game records an "echo" of your actions. This echo replays itself if time runs out before you finish your turn (we call it "cast"), and you can then try again from the beginning alongside all of your previous echoes.
Cooperate with all of the echoes and actions of your past to help pass challenges you couldn't before! Check out this trailer to...
