Echochrome PSP/PS3 price difference explained

The PSP version of Echochrome costs twice as much as the PS3 version, but Siliconera explains there is reason for the extra money. All of the answers are found over at Impress Watch (Japanese).

The PlayStation 3 version is actually "Echochrome: Jokyoku" or "Echochrome: Prelude" in English. For 1,800 yen ($17) you get a get a sample of Echochrome by tasting 50 puzzles. The 3,980 yen ($37) PSP version contains 100 puzzles and multiple modes including a variation where you have to avoid walking dark echoes.

Fortunately, both versions come with canvas mode, which lets players create and upload puzzles on the PlayStation Network or transfer data via the PSP's Ad-Hoc mode. With this new information the PSP version is more tantalizing. However, the cheaper PlayStation 3 version supports users-created content, which devalues the addition of the extra 50 puzzles.

actually quite understandable reasons twice the ammount of puzzles and extra modes twice the cost but i would get the cheap ps3 version just because i can create and download which over time will become more valuable

True. However, a portable puzzle game is worth the price as well.

So if the ps3 have user created content
Then why does the psp version cost so much more? Someone is boudn to make the same exact levels using the user created tools.
games4fun  +   2793d ago
it starts out with more and its portable but i was thinking the same thing that someone would end up copying them over anyway
travelguy2k  +   2793d ago
I think it costs
more because they have to put it on a UMD and sell it through retailers who also need to get a piece of the action. But really if you can DL it on PSN for the PS3 and then play it remotely from your PSP, then i fail to see the advantage of the psp version.

For 9.2
Probably for the people who don't have a PS3 and only a PSP.
Doctor Strange  +   2793d ago
This does make sense and I didn't know that user created content was going to be available for this game. I'm really looking forward to it know.
TheWickedOne  +   2793d ago
Sounds ok to me.
Fighter  +   2793d ago
There better be a lot of good puzzles on the UMD because I would never pay over $37 for a PSP game unless it was worthy. I'm still looking forward to this.
