Cocoreccho goes Loco on PSN

Sony Japan's "interactive screensaver" joined by free trials of Skate, NBA 08, Sega Rally Revo, and Stuntman: Ignition.

As promised last week, Sony has updated the PlayStation Network with Sony Japan's quirky continuation of its roly-poly LocoRoco franchise, LocoRoco Cocoreccho! Four more demos also find their way to the PSN this week, along with a standard complement of miscellaneous media.

LocoRoco are apparently keen on butterflies.

Somewhat disappointingly abridged from its illustrious Japanese title--Oiedeyo LocoRoco! Boo Boo Cocoreccho!--LocoRoco Cocoreccho! is available this week for $6.99. As opposed to the euphorically docile blob from the first game, players will move the world around a butterflylike creature to round up the errant LocoRoco, as detailed in GameSpot's recent preview of the game from this year's Tokyo Game Show. Rather than exclusively using the Sixaxis' motion-sensing technology to guide the world, players will also be able to control LocoRoco using standard gamepad controls. The game is rated E for Everyone.

Following up on the impressive five demos added to the PSN last week, Sony has updated the online service with four more. With the full version out next Monday, a try-before-you-buy sampler of EA's Skate is now available. EA Sports' NBA Live 08 free trial finds company with a demo of Sony's internally developed NBA 08. Lastly, trials for two racers also speed onto the PSN today: Sega Rally Revo and THQ's Stuntman: Ignition.

i don't use my 360 muc, even with the ability to download my 360 is way too slow, and no wi-fi hurts when i go someplace. besides i can't play folklore or motorstorm demos on xbl, and i don't feel like paying to play atm since life isnt cheap unless your a 13 yr old with well off parents.

I'm glad they're not going too crazy on the Sixaxis controls. I'm not big on gimmicks. Unfortunately, I've already played all these demos on my 360, but I'm itchin' for a new game for the ole dusty PS3, and LocoRoco has got to be better than nothing.

I already saw video of Loco Roco Cocoreccho . It doesn't look as cool as the PSP Loco Roco, but then again, it's a lot cheaper. I don't know how I'm going to feel about the butterfly gameplay, but I'm still getting it (it's only $7). Also, I'm glad they announced the SIXAXIS is available but not manditory. Oh, and I don't think these Loco Rocos sing like they did for the PSP version, at least not in the video I saw; that's so sad, I hope that's not true. Anyhow, I'm still waiting for Everyday Shooter.

The last thing I read about Locoroco Cocoreccho was that it was a screen saver or something. $6.99 for a screen saver? Screw that noise.

My US account is in Beverly Hills 90210, lol. Use Google Maps to set it up correctly and yes UK credit cards can be used to buy things - they don't need to be linked to that address. Don't let the fact you live in Europe stop you being global in your exploration of PSN.
