Heavy Rain Ushered In As Japanese Greatest Hit
It was well received by critics and better still, gamers rewarded Quantic Dream's fantastic, revolutionary effort.
This is why Heavy Rain will soon join the "PlayStation 3 The Best" ranks in Japan; this is the same as our Greatest Hits lineup in North America. This new re-release will be sold at the lower price of 2,980 yen and hopefully, even more gamers well get a chance to sample the dramatic interactive greatness. The game launched in Japan on February 18 and the honorary discounted version will be on shelves on March 10. Considering this, we have to assume it will become a Greatest Hit here in the US some time soon; with total sales of over 1.5 million, it certainly qualifies. Furthermore, any extra exposure this title gets is fine by us. Remember, Quantic Dream boss David Cage thanked everyone for turning his ambitious experiment into a huge success...makes us feel all fuzzy inside to hear that.
Now, all we have to do is hear about Quantic's next project. Whatever it is, we're willing to bet we'll be interested.
