Critical Love For Heavy Rain Results In Pre-Order Surge

Towards the end of our Heavy Rain review, I said I was "terrified" that it might not be a sales success due to its originality, intelligence, and emotional sentimentality; traits that don't often resonate with a mass audience.

But as we've all learned by now, review scores are absolutely crucial in this industry and PSXE was hardly the only source to deliver glowing praise after the embargo lifted yesterday. This influx of extremely positive reviews has had an immediate and profound impact on the pre-order sales numbers for Quantic Dream's masterpiece; Heavy Rain has rocketed to the #1 slot on Amazon's Bestsellers for Video Games list. It has surged past the 120GB PS3 - a fixture in the top 10 over the past few months - and even huge titles like the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII and the recently released Bioshock 2. If you haven't pre-ordered Heavy Rain just yet and wish to hop aboard the bandwagon, you should know that dropping your deposit on the game will get you the first Episode of the DLC, "Heavy Rain Chronicles," for free. These Episodes will start to hit the PSN soon after the game releases here in North America on February 23; they will cost $4.99 each but as I just said, a pre-order nets you the first one free. I believe GameStop is offering the same incentive.

I have to say, on a personal level, this news made my day. Not only have the majority of critics appreciated Quantic Dream's vision but so many gamers have further responded to that praise. It only proves that we're all growing up. 'little tear'

It is through games like this that the Industry as a whole will move forwards and change the landscape of the video 'games' industry. Perhaps one day, video games will no longer be perceived as 'just for kids' by the mass media and public consciousness.

I don't mind it, doesn't change my gaming situation one bit. To be honest I'm not sure many still believe they're just for kids with more games being released as either an M rating or the dreaded Adult rating. Games are looked at as more of a waste of time than simply something for kids.

Can someone explain why the Metacritic Score is 89 when most of the highly weighted sites like GameInformer, IGN, PSTOM, GamePro, PSXExtreme, and 1Up all rated this game above 90? Only some obscure sites rated it in the 70's and a few in the 80's. It makes no sense.

Out of 35 reviews, 8 are below 90.

Thursday, February 11, 2010 @ 12:43:42 PM

I think that they do a standard deviation calculation on the reviews, chuck out the outliers and calculate the average from the remaining reviews.... that gives you an 89.

The trouble is that with a standard deviation of 7.6 you chuck out three scores on the low end and all the scores above 92 on the 'high' end. So to you and me it looks as though a game gets an unfair, artificially lowered metascore.

However, using Heavy Rain as the example. If we simply toss the top three and bottom 3 scores as outliers and calculate the average it comes out as 90. That's despite adding two scores of 100, a 97, a 95, and a 94 back into the calculation.

If you knock out the top 6 and bottom 6 scores, you get an average of just enough to scrape a 91 (rounding up).

In other words, the system they use is fair, even if intuitively, it doesn't appear to be.

I got to play a demo last night thanks to the Heavy Rain 4 day challenge. It was pretty darn good...although I can already see that managing the controls will be a bit tricky at first. I played the demo through 5 times...each time was a little different...it's definately an intriguing and addicting game..and that's just from the demo!

I love the way developers like Quantic Dream take an idea, work on it and make it the best they can. Their taking a chance.
I mean so many developers are making quick and easy Wii games and making $$$. (Fair play really)

I am glad their work have paid off getting 9.5 at PSX and high scores everywhere else.

You can pre-order at Amazon and

3. get the pre-order for free, as well
AND
4. get free release day arrival.

Games radar's 70 is a little harsh but they're a tough when it comes to reviews.

Destructoid on the other side just rubs me the wrong way.They play the whole "Lets laugh at you fanboys[but we're really fanboys]",card.Just like those trolls on forums who say one console is better then another and then claim to have all consoles but most likely really dont.

That's awesome news. I had Heavy Rain in my Amazon cart forever and finally pre-ordered on Feb 9th, the day before all the reviews hit.

I picked up Indigo Prophecy a few months back, and even though I'm only about 2/3 finished, I knew HR would be a must buy.

Thanks in advance Quantic Dream!

I've had this one preordered since the day I picked up MAG (launch day). & mines was placed at Gamestop, so add one to those Amazon preorders :).

Glad the embargo lifts the 10th, so that people can like the reviews, then try the demo the next day! Then replay it until the 23rd, when the first important decision they'll make is to get the game or not.

Sorry guys, but someone please explain to me why you would pre-order any game?

I look at the economics of it (here in Australia anyway), you pre-order the game for $110, pay your money, wait a month and when it comes out on day one it is $79 in several other stores.

So why does everyone do that? It just puzzles me that's all.

Here in the U.S. it's $60 at most retailers, some places it's $55. Normally people preorder games to be "guaranteed" a copy when the game launches. Games rarely sell out at retailers so now they throw in incentives for preordering.

Here in the US, "good" games do not drop in price. We preorder them to be guaranteed a copy upon release. Not to mention, the preorder bonuses.

I said good games because there are games that drop in price maybe a week after release but not the amount that you have stated.

Had this pre-ordered in my mind as soon as I heard "The makers of indigo prophecy have a new game"

and last month I made it official with Best Buy who were also offering the free DLC incentive. Gonna pick it up day one! I had a gift card left over from christmas so it only cost me $40

Thanks OtisFeelgood. Still, you would need to have a lot of DLC incentive to make the $30 difference between a pre-order and first day purchase price.

In Australia especially, we have half a dozen places (EBGames, Game, JB-HiFi, BigW, KMart, Dick Smith) all undercutting each other on the first day.

Modern Warfare 2 was $109 pre-order and $69 on the day of release.

So suppose if you are in a city with a lot of competition it's great but pre-ordering makes more sense if you are in a small place with only one store.

Cheers

Those are awful high prices. Here in the US, we don't have competitors undercutting each other. The game is 59.99 pretty much everywhere you go. A collectors edition is the exception as they can range anywhere from 89.99 to upwards of 150.00 depending on the layout.

So basically we just preorder to have it on day 1. In all likelihood the game will be in stock somewhere but why waste the time looking when you can go ahead and buy the game. Especially when you know you are going to get it anyway.

Yip, $100 Australian is about $90 US, so we do pay a lot for games. The US is cheap and Europe and the UK are similar to Australia.

$100 Australian is a lot of money so if you see it at $79 on release day, it's a no brainer.

from the demo of heavy rain i played the game is subpar. great visuals poor controls good story a blantent ripoff of csi and robocop. very little replay value a good rental ive played enough games with no gameplay. bioshock 2 was ok saved by the fantastic multiplayer. developers need to make actual games not stupid tv shows i can watch on tv. a gamer is someone who hates garbage television and chooses videogames as a escape from reality. im getting very annoyed at developers for taking so much making a game and ruining it even more.

I want this game and MAG! I just don't got time to go to stores and I don't pre-order stuff online. Don't ask why :)

i was worried about the same thing but judging from peoples reactions of the demo it looks like i was wrong.
hopefully i am because if heavy rain is a massive success than hopefully other developers will dare to follow suit, and it will increase sonys confidence on quantic dream.
this is one of those games that really needs to sell well, so guys forget bioshock 2, dantes inferno, AVP, MAG, forget EVERYTHING! this is the game you need to get this month.
i will personally come door to door handing out fines to anyone who does not buy heavy rain.
fair warning!

Congrats Heavy Rain! This is the first time in a long time something deserved gets what's due.

even though i love the demo i probably only be renting this game only cause i already pre-order gow 3.but i do know this game will probably sell but not as much as QD or Sony want.cause there's alot of people who love the game and think how the gameplay/story is a wonderful masterpiece and other just thinks its boring and waste of time.

I stopped pre-ordering games in the 1990s ! I did pre-order GT 5 and FF 13 because I know they won't be on store shelves long !

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
