Forecast Calls For Heavy Rain Today

The day has finally come for PlayStation 3 owners; the day when they can lay their hands on Quantic Dream's "interactive drama" and take the memorable storytelling ride.

Today, SCEA has announced that Heavy Rain has released in North America. Created by the team responsible for the likes of Indigo Prophecy, players take control of four major characters and follow a branching plot to discover the Origami Killer. "How far will you go to save someone you love?" It's the underlying theme of the game and one that is both extremely effective and poignant; this immensely atmospheric and gripping psychological thriller features excellent music and voice acting, mind-blowing visuals, beautiful artistry, and an emotional roller-coaster you won't soon forget. So many decisions, and so many possibilities... Said SCEA Vice President of Product Marketing, Scott A. Steinberg:

"Tapping into the power and technology of PS3, Quantic Dream has pushed gaming boundaries to the limits, placing emotion at the forefront of the Heavy Rain experience. This dark and mysterious story delivers a setting and mood that truly attests to the true film noir feel of the game. We're eager for fans to enter this world and experience their own unique story, one that can only be had on PS3."

As you step into the shoes of Ethan Mars (architect and father), Scott Shelby (private detective), Madison Paige (journalist) and Norman Jayden (FBI profiler), you will continue to dictate how the story unfolds. Ethan Mars' son has been kidnapped by the Origami Killer and it's up to these four individuals to find and save that boy...or, if things go wrong, it simply won't happen. David Cage spent over a year creating the 2,000 page script of dialogue and worked with a cast of over 70 actors to bring his vision to life. The press release says Heavy Rain is "possible only through the power of the PS3 system," and a team of 220 had to work for over 170 days simply to provide the game with the requisite motion capture. It's a gargantuan effort and as you've already seen in our review, it's one that paid off.

We're hoping the game gets some advertising; there will be a TV ad in Europe, at the very least, and you can view it over at the European PlayStation Blog. But also bear in mind that now that the game is on store shelves, the Internet could be loaded with spoilers. So just be cautious about the Heavy Rain news and reviews you read; we won't spoil anything at PSXE, that's for sure.

Just a heads up to anyone interested in this game (like me), some prick(s) been spoiling the ending of Heavy Rain in sites like youtube, facebook and gaming news sites like N4G... soo I'd steer clear of the comments section of those sites If I were you... I can't believe at what level fanboys go in this stupid console war... sheesh... Spread the word if you can, a game like Heavy Rain can really suffer from someone spoiling the story...

It is sad that people can't just be happy with what they have and let other people be happy with what they have.

I always thought that gaming was about enjoyment and having fun with a hobby that you loved but over the years it has gone from fun to rabid bs and I really just don't understand it.

I was suppose to get the free DLC with my pre-order from gamestop. But I did not, probably because I pre-ordered it yesterday. Which is sad, for the man behind the counter told me that I would be getting it when I pre-ordered it. Might have to start shopping at Best Buy I guess...Of course this was my own fault for not pre-ordering it sooner. I'm such an idiot.

Did you ask for the code when you picked it up? The codes where limited per store so that could be the problem, they may have run out. I actually made them give me my code when I pre-odered my copy Monday, I always make them give me my code beforehand just for this reason.

I was talking with the man behind the counter and he told me that I would have to wait until I picked it up. When I picked it up, it was a different man. He told me that there were no codes at all, none had shipped to that Gamestop. So I left because I had to be somewhere. Today I decided to go back and complain that all Gamestops should have the codes. I met an older lady who didn't look like she wanted to be there. I told her that I did not receive a bonus for my preorder and also about the "No codes here" story. She pulled the drawer out to look and automatically said they didn't have any while she looked. The person who came with me spotted it against the back of the drawer and told her that was it. She just handed it to me and told me to have a good day without checking my receipt. It was the last one. I wonder now if it was saved by one of the employees for his own benefits.

So I finally got it, thankfully. It was well worth the hassle. I'm going to be more careful when I preorder anything nowadays. =)

LOL, I had a friend do that. He had an outstanding balance at a local video store a few years back and went off to Iraq. When he came back he was made aware of the fact that his outstanding balance had been accessing monthly charges. He was pretty pissed and just never went back to the place, to this day I believe he owes them a pretty penny but evidently they haven't gone after him for it.

i think i might be renting this for the entire month, lol...

So this is my first comment on this website guys! I am a frequent visitor though and I love Ben's reviews, so I just had to get that out of the way. As for Heavy Rain, I have had a copy for almost a week already (cant tell you guys how I obtained it :P) I just have to say this is probably the best game I have ever played! All of you have to get this game and play the hell out of it. Never has a game got me so emotionally attached, that it makes the game actually seem believable.

I guess sarcasm really has to be written after ever comment to ensure everyone else is on the same page as I am. Last Rebellion is not even gonna be a contender for GOTY, as a matter of fact, from all the negative reviews rolling in I don't think Last Rebellion even garners a rental. In my post above I was really getting at Heavy Rain, just picked up my pre-order from Gamestop, right now it's installing, so anxious. 99% just about complete. Heavy Rain is now installed. Press the start button to play. Yes! So long PSX, I'm going on a journey, I'll be back, one day.

Anyone know where you can still get a download card if buying the game today? Both Gamestops in my area say they dont have enough cards even to fill pre-orders...

Amazon status: shipped. I know I will have to wait about a week for it to get here because I didn't opt for the day 1 delivery but I am stoked as a monkey on meth.

As usual I will only be looking at PSXE so no chance of spoilers will reach me. It looks like this game might actually get the sales it deserves, let's hope it does.

Have fun in the rain guys, I'll be out to play soon. :)

Because of the effort and originality of this game, and because it's my most anticipated, it deserves my $90 (NZ).

I've had this pre-ordered for a while, but unfortunately won't be able to pick it up until late tonite.
The anticipation is a real nail-biter, but I've been waiting three years for this game, so a few more hours shouldn't do any longterm damage.

Has anyone been able to get the DLC for Heavy Rain. I got my code and it keeps telling me that the code is invalid. I was getting upset and then I remembered an article Ben wrote a little while back that said the DLC wouldn't be available until early March. Is that correct Ben?

I called gamestop to see if they had any codes left for those who didnt preorder (me), and the guy told me they didnt even have enough to fulfill all preorders.

Wonder why sony is going so strict on DLC codes?

I made my bird. That's a good way to kill time during the install phase. Played for a couple hours. My girl had to leave for school and she made me promise for her to get home until i play it again. She's loving the story.

Heavy Rain is one of the most innovative and interesting "games" out there. The story telling, the action, the drama, the graphics, everything that is the core of this game will have you hooked from beginning to end. You will not want to put the controller down for even a second! Bravo to Quantic Dream's team and SCEE for taking the risk involved in promoting and making such an excellent "interactive drama".

Due to a sudden lack of bucks today, I couldn't even go sniff around for a copy.

But at least I got to enjoy all the posts of those who have started the game, and are heralding it.



BTW, It's been pouring-down rain here all day, and is supposed to keep raining for the next 2 days too.

Soooooo, I figured "what the heck", since I can't play the game, I'll just go out & hunt for the Origami killer myself.

But the FBI keeps crimping my style cause every time I call them to borrow their forensic glove & glasses, they keep frigging hanging up on me. WTF is with that anyway?

Oh well.....Seems that for the next three days, I'm just destined to stay put here at home and make little origami "Hello Kitty's". *sigh*

:'( ive still got to wait a day.
just a question is it actually possible to finish the game with all 4 characters alive?
thats what ill be aiming for, but well if i actually get there is another story.
ive seen quite a few videos of QTEs so fast i think theres no way im going to be able to do that.

@whiskeytango74 I received mine but I also was the first customer that preordered it but if you see on the website it states that if you preorder it, you are guarenteed a copy of the DLC if they didn't get enough then email sony or gamestop head office cause I bet they did get enough but the employees probably gave them away to non preorder customers or themselves which I see and have heard gamestop does alot, apparently employees come first.

I just canceled my GOW III preorder cause they informed me I was to far on the list to get the free stuff that the regualar comes with but they said I'm guarentteed the collectors ? so I preordered at futureshop cause they give you a 10 dollar off of the game plus the free stuff it comes with if you preorder. Fine with me on that.
