Heavy Rain Patch Available, Should Fix All Problems
It's one of the most impressive games of the generation...but it's hard to go along for the emotional ride if the game keeps freezing on you.
While it didn't appear to be a massively widespread problem, many did complain of crashing and freezing issues when trying to play Heavy Rain. Well, Sony and Quantic Dream have heeded your cries of, "fix it, please!" and provided you with update 1.02, which should fix any and all issues. It's a 38MB download and won't take you long to grab, so pop in your disc and snag the update so as to avoid any future problems or bugs. We also turn your attention to a recent Industry Gamers interview with Quantic Dream boss David Cage, where he is obviously happy with the success of Heavy Rain. "It's way above my expectations in my craziest dreams, to be honest with you," he said. As of now, he notes that 373 total reviews have scored the game at 9 or above, and according to a Sony study, the game holds a 90-95% "satisfaction rating" with consumers. He adds that sales "definitely exceeded what we expected," which is great news, because we were a little worried about that... No need for concern now.
The game has done very well overall and that's just plain awesome. If more games take a cue or two from Heavy Rain, the industry will be much, much better off.
