Let The Heavy Rain Hype Begin

Ever since the very first photos were released way back at E3 2006, everyone has been clamoring for concrete information and details concerning Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain. But up until now, the developers responsible for Indigo Prophecy had only provided select game journalists with behind-closed-doors presentations, leaving most gamers very much in the dark. Even leaked photos - like the one pictured here - really don't tell us much.

But the wait is almost over, as Heavy Rain will be a staple of Sony's press conference today at the Leipzig Games Convention. We believe the conference kicks off at 12:00 p.m. ET, and we can't wait to hear what they have to say. To help fuel the hype, check out this video where GameReactor TV interviewed Quantic Dreams founder and Heavy Rain director, David Cage. Here, Cage talks about Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and says the game got "some" things right, and that his promising game will have "no competitors." Well, we gave Uncharted Game of the Year - co-held with God of War II in 2007 - so if that title only got "some" things correct...than what the hell are we going to get with Heavy Rain>

Remember, we're talking about a PlayStation 3 exclusive, so should we be adding this name to the likes of Metal Gear Solid, Ratchet and Clank, Gran Turismo, and Resistance? Will Heavy Rain suddenly become one of the most widely anticipated next-gen titles after Leipzig? The hype begins!

The graphics are good but that's about it.
I'm not hyped 'till I see something which makes me want to get it.

Less interested if it's an FPS.

Even less interested if it's a life simulator game with no action.

Geez, we still don't even know concretely if those screen shots are in game yet or not. All we have is word of mouth on anything involving the game. It is amazing that so much hype can be built up around it, especially with it not carrying a well known name, like Halo or something.

The game has potential, I just hope it can live up to the hype. I want to see some game play besides that interview tech demo.

Sorry, i cant see why the hype is building over this game. Until we see some actual game footage and learn whats the story is going to be like, the only thing i cant get excited about is the fact that its ps3 exclusive.

As long as it lives up to its hyped potential ( unlike Too Human ) it should do well. If it turns out great, id be the first to admit i was wrong

I'm really not all that excited about it. I don't understand how it started. I mean yeah I guess the graphics look nice...other than that I only know that it rains,she has a gun,she sits in the kitchen,someone is on a bike...other than that, I'm assuming this'll be like a Shenmue type game. Until I see more of what this is I don't think i'll be excited for it

The more informetion and the best. This game has been on radar for more than 2 years now, it's time to see some progress and gameplay. Maybe a release date?

Not to say the game won't be fun but there is too much hype over a cut scene that may or may not even be in the game. It would be funny if it turned out to be a Lifetime-like make women cry drama game.
