PSXE Poll Update: Many Early Adopters For Heavy Rain
Although we heard plenty of skepticism surrounding Quantic Dream's newest project, it seems the majority of our readers were already sold on Heavy Rain even before the overwhelmingly positive review scores arrived.
We were hardly the only ones to heap glowing praise atop the revolutionary title in question, and while a lot of you said that feedback helped, most say they were all ready to snag Heavy Rain on day one. This probably shouldn't be too surprising, as we covered the game very well over the past year and there has been plenty of information flooding the Internet for months. For those who were really interested, you likely learned everything you needed to know quite some time ago, although we heard a lot of, "damn, now I'm definitely getting this game!" after we issued our review. Despite our 9.5 score, I told you towards the end of the analysis that Heavy Rain isn't for everyone; that if you lack the requisite sensibility and sensitivity, and you simply aren't interested in artistic, storytelling and atmospheric achievements, you'll likely be bored. But we've got a lot of readers who represent the exact right audience for this game.
It comes out on Tuesday, if you need the reminder. Moving forward, we want one simple answer from you: God of War III or Final Fantasy XIII? The two mammoth titles come out within one week of each other next month, and we'd like to know - if you absolutely had to choose - which of these immensely promising titles you would purchase. We know plenty of you are planning to get both but we're asking you to make the tough choice... Which is it?
