As seen on this question about Ico, there are different versions of this game with slightly different puzzles in some rooms. Many walkthroughs and youtube videos published show different solutions for the version I played in PS2 & PS3. What version was the first and how many are there? It is related to the region, may be? Thanks in advance.
