E3 2008: Where Is Heavy Rain?
We saw a whole lot of games previewed at yesterday's Sony press conference at E3, but one of the most anticipated was curiously missing: Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain.
However, as Kotaku pointed out, the official Sony press release for the event does list the game amongst those that would make an appearance. The PlayStation 3 list includes the likes of God of War III, Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet, and even the freshly unveiled Mag; all of which were shown at the press conference. In fact, every title on the list - from what we can see - saw airtime during the presentation...except Heavy Rain. They said it was going to be at E3, so perhaps they're going to unveil it behind closed doors today or tomorrow? Is this going to be a more private affair? We don't know, but if the promising game remains in absentia, we're going to have to conclude that Quantic Dream simply wasn't ready. If that's the case, there's always Leipzig next month and the Tokyo Game Show the month after that.
But right now, many PS3 owners are just wondering: where the heck is Quantic Dream? We'll see if we can find it; maybe it's hiding somewhere...
