Piyotama puzzles PlayStation Store

Downloadable PS3 title joins Heavenly Sword shorts and a spate of trailers in this week's update.

One of the highlights of Sony's press conference at the E3 Media & Business Summit was the unveiling of JapanStudio's Echochrome, a unique PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable puzzle game with an Escher-esque bent. While that game still doesn't have a release date, interested gamers can check out Piyotama today, another PS3 puzzle game from the developer.

Piyotama challenges gamers to hatch the eggs of Mother Piyo by lining up four or more of the same-colored eggs in a row. The game includes single-player and multiplayer modes, graphics in 1080p, Sixaxis tilt support, and global leaderboards. Piyotama is available for $2.99.

In addition to the game, video clips for a number of other games and some feature films are going up on the PlayStation Network today. Two new promotional clips for Heavenly Sword will be available, including a "making of" feature and the first of five animated episodes that will fill in the game's backstory leading up to its September release. Other trailers include looks at Disney Interactive Studios' first-person shooter Turok, theatrical releases 10,000 B.C., Fred Claus, and Superbad, as well as the Blu-ray release of Perfect Stranger.

Along with these fun filled tidbits of time killing fun... The Heavenly Sword (Free) Flash animation is cool. And the fact that Grand Turismo HD is out now too and guess what? ITS FREE!!! I'm noticing that PS3 and Sony are slowly getting thier act together and fillin up our lunchboxes with some tasty treats to tide us over till the KILLER games get released, then its SUPPER TIME BABY!!! Truly the prices on the Sony Store are very reasonable in consideration. Though not all the puzzle games are to get hyped up about, there's plenty of other download content that is very worth while.

Wow, one of the 380 games Sony promised by March... wait, if it's released in Japan, North America, UK, and Australia, that counts as 4 games :P

iMacBot PS3 is so awesome! I don't know why people are all trash-talking about it! --------------- Because we are getting excited with this new puzzle game Piyotama while others are talking about Halo3 and Bioshock. And to think I only shelled out $600 for this beast of machine. Sigh....

I love that fact that the playstation store deals in cash instead of points. Makes purchasing stuff very easy.

rstankos, are you a company plant? It's one thing to be enthusiastic about something, but that came off like a line of PR fluff. Wow.

Lets hope the next demo that they release isnt the whole of 30 seconds that Heavenly Sword was and maybe they will be on the right track.

Another bit of good news. (MS is NOT the only brainy outfit on earth.) These little tidbits keep the system enjoyment level up, while waiting for the big guns! I must confess that (guilty pleasure) I even enjoyed Super Rub-A-Dub. Each full game (boxed) I've purchased, has been better than the last. Keep it up, guys!

echoChrome will be amazing. Hopefully we'll have a LAIR demo next week.

No lair or Stranglehold demo = stupid update. Funny thing is, PS3 gets the better version of Stranglehold.

Meh, I just bought Calling All Cars, Mortal Kombat II (I know, a little late for both), and Super Stardust HD. I don't care if we didn't get a demo this week, I have 3 awesome PSN titles to keep me busy :) Hopefully, next week, we get the Ratchet, Stranglehold, or Lair demo. Imagine if we get all 3? :D

Yknow Gamespot Japan Studio isnt an actual studio its a title Sony gives to any Jp development team that is making a ps3 game that sony plans to distibute. Like Level 5 they dont own them but they call them Japan studio becuz they are from japan.

piyotama isnt made to sell systems its made for ps3 systems who wouldnt want to spend 3 bux to play a puzzler while waiting on the bigger releases. OH and the HS animated Shorts were inspired by Clone Wars.

I'm glad they released the animated episodes on the store cuz I hated watching them on the little flash player on the Playstation GAP website.

system seller? Im not gonna pay 500-600 bucks and download a 2.99 game, that would be stupid.... I want a solid exclusive title (like heavenly sword) when I get a PS3.
