Surfer girl writes: Rockstar is fully owned by Take-Two and it will stay that way, as will the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Remember what happened when co-founder and chief Terry Donovan left Rockstar? Whilst Terry was on Rockstar, Terry, Sam and Dan were known as "the three-headed monster." If the Housers left Rockstar, the same would happen. There is pretty much NO ONE who would follow the Housers on their way out. A new company from them would hardly be a force to be reckoned with.
"I don't mean to be a tease - all I can say is that I was left speechless. If the footage I was shown truly is "in game", as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion." - BBC reporter
Surfer girl is fairly certain that, this is Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain. The characters are full of idiosyncrasies, they may hesitate before the speak, and most importantly, they look and behave in a realistic, convincing manner unlike any other that I have seen in a game. On top of this, the characters (and the game itself) are so well-written, there is a discernible depth that will create an attachment from the player far greater than the typical cardboard avatar.
