New User-Created EchoChrome Levels Coming To PS3

350w ago - Kumi Yuasa, associate producer for the perspective-bending PlayStation Network title echochrome, has revealed that twenty all-new user-created challenges will be playable through the game's freeform mode sometime later this this month.

Yuasa didn't mention a concrete date, but did say that the levels would launch "between May 15 and May 21."

Players will need to set their difficulty level to at least 2 or 3 to experience the new levels. Additionally, the creators of each level will be rewarded in the form of recognition starting this week, as Yuasa will reveal their PSN ID on the PlayStation Blog.

As a couple commenters over at the PS Blog have pointed out, it would be far more convenient if the levels could be downloaded and played at will, instead of randomly through freeform mode.

Kojima: MGS4 is the Conclusion to the Metal Gear Saga

350w ago - At a press event held in Tokyo yesterday, producer Hideo Kojima announced that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patroits has gone gold.

Meaning, the game is now finished development-wise and is currently in the process of being sent to manufacturing in preparation for its June 12 worldwide release date.

While on the stand, Kojima noted that Metal Gear Solid 4 is "the conclusion to the Metal Gear Saga."

However, Konami president Fumiaki Tanaka accentuated the fact that MGS 4 won't be Kojima's last PlayStation 3 title, as he has mentioned in previous interviews before.

To quote: "We took on all sorts of challenges in the making of MGS4," reminisced Kojima.

"We were challenged to make MGS4 on the Cell-processor-operated, unknown monster of a hardware called the PlayStation 3. We were challenged to make MGS4 in high definition graphics and 5.1ch surround sound so that it'd play in the leagues of movies.

We were challenged to give MGS4 the most [content] in the series, and so we had the largest number of developers working [on the franchise] ever. We were challenged to release the game simultaneously worldwide for the first time. And, we were challenged to make it the last title in the series, as the game will be the conclusion to the Metal...

Intel's Price Cuts are Hidden Treasure to Gamers

350w ago - The PC Gamer reader mail bag is still overflowing with anxious letters from readers who are feeling a little, you know, inadequate in the processor department.

Some of them want to know if they should go from AMD to Intel or Intel to AMD; some want to know if they should go from dual-core to quad-core; and in extreme cases, some want to know if they should go from single-core to multi-core.

The answer is usually tricky, as it depends on what you use your PC for (I'm assuming gaming, with maybe some audio and video flirtation on the side), what kind of videocard you have, etc. But Intel's recent price cuts - these were major cuts - have made things a lot simpler for the time being.

Here are some of the official prices, which are based on 1,000 unit quantities for large polygamist families. Intel's Core 2 Quad Q6700 plummeted from $530 down to $266, and the Core 2 Quad Q6600 dipped down to $224 from $266. The dual-core E6850 went down to $183 from $266.

You can expect to pay a bit more at retail; my personal favorite, for example, the lovely and cosmopolitan Q6700, is going for $280 at Newegg, shipped.

These prices ought to keep Intel in a holding pattern for a while, and there aren't any murmurs about major price cuts from AMD yet, so if you've been waiting...
