PSP and PS3 EchoChrome demos available tomorrow!

50°
348w ago - To quote from the official PlayStation Blog: My name is Kumi Yuasa and I am the Associate Producer for the upcoming PSN game EchoChrome.

This is my first post on the blog, and I'm excited that my debut here on the blog is to announce that free PS3 and PSP EchoChrome demos will be available for download tomorrow on the PlayStation Store on the PS3. The PSP demo version will also be available for download on the PlayStation Store for PC.




Perhaps you have read about EchoChrome... There is a lot of excitement for it - N'Gai Croal of Level Up even wrote, "...as of last E3, the 2008 game we've been looking forward to the most is EchoChrome."

It's a fun and addictive puzzle game with really elegant and simple graphics. The concept is inspired by the famous MC Escher artwork, which explores infinity, architecture and impossible constructions. In EchoChrome, you control the camera and perspective on an infinite canvas, guiding a mannequin figure by carefully tilting and turning the level to create a continual pathway, allowing your character to walk safely through the design. Puzzled?!? Check out the video above and you'll see what I mean!

There is no single way to get through a level in EchoChrome. You and your friends...
 

Exclusive Haze demo coming to PSN early May

349w ago - Ubisoft today announced the imminent release of a fully playable demo for Haze, the new first-person shooter set in a harsh future where war is never quite what it seems.

Coming exclusively to the PLAYSTATION Network in early May, this playable demo will give gamers a taste of not only the single-player campaign in Haze, but will also allow up to four-player, drop-in drop-out co-op play online.

Developed by shooter experts Free Radical, creators of the critically acclaimed TimeSplitters series, Haze is scheduled for release exclusively on the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system on May 20th 2008.
 

Are Game Demos Bad For Business?

50°
349w ago - According to a study conducted by the Electronic Entertainment Design and Research Group, the best-selling titles on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were not released alongside a playable demo.

Discussed at last week's MI6 game marketing conference, the study suggests that publishers should release only trailers for upcoming titles.

Researchers of the study, Gregory Short and Geoffery Zatkin, concluded that if publishers must release a demo, they should begin producing the demo after the game's release, so as to avoid interruptions with the development of the final product.

Well, this study would certainly be more interesting if the actual games included in it were shown. If the overall tally includes games like Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4, then it all makes perfect sense.
