Clever Echochrome Japanese TV spot reminds me of the good old days


9:40 AM on 03.24.2008



Echochrome had Destructoid talking all the way back in 2007 at the Tokyo Game Show, where Nick Chester marvelled over its weirdness and generally sounded stoned out over it's Escher-esque leanings. The demo came out in Japan for the PSP on March 6th, which you can score here if you can directly connect your PSP to the PC (since it came with a USB cable, let's hope you can get that far.)

The Japanese commercial above shows a bit of the tongue-in-cheek humor I remember most fondly from Playstation 2's golden age of popularity, which sure does my heart good when it comes to the future of the PSP and PS3. Also, what's the deal with Japanese men with afros? How the hell do you grow that with a genetic predisposition for straight, fine hair?
