I hope you had a great July 4th weekend. Did you all get to try the PlayStation Move Ape Escape demo last week and experience catching monkeys with the PlayStation Move motion controller?

We’re proud to announce that echochrome ii, the PlayStation Move puzzle game available now for PS3, has been accepted into the Guinness Book of World Records for boasting a single musical track that lasts 75 minutes and 7 seconds — the longest in video game music history!
For a little background on echochrome ii, check out my past blog post. It is a puzzle game that uses light and shadow to create a unique, innovative world for gamers to unravel. Players hold the PlayStation Move motion controller like a flashlight to control the light source in each puzzle stage, searching for hidden “shadow art” and using the shadows to create a path to the goal for their character to traverse.
