David Cage: “I’m not creating products, I’m trying to create experiences”

Heavy Rain was received with mixed reactions when it launched in 2010, and creator David Cage has shed light on why making a sequel was the last thing he wanted to do. He’s also explained why he feels he is making experiences, not products.

The story is too old to be commented.

Heavy Rain was received with mixed reactions? really?
i thought it received generally positive reviews?

A lot of people didn't like the huge QTE-focus. That's also the reason why Beyond: Two Souls will play different.

Have you seen Beyonds gameplay?

But damn, I wish Cage had better answers or simply stopped talking. The pretentiousness is through the roof.

ZodTheRipper1928d ago

^Yes and Cage also said that himself so I don't understand the disagrees.

I didn't mind the QTE's, it's just that those were the most criticized thing in Heavy Rain.

An experience that he wants to sell to as many people as possible.

So his games are justified in this business and so he can continue to create these types of games.

A good business is where both parties are happy with the product. If Cage is happy with the sales and the people are happy with the game then it's a win win for everybody. I wish there were more devs like this.

Heavey rain cost something in the region of 40 million (including advertising, logistics ect), and made over 100 million back so i think he would be pleased and so was sony.

Products wrapped in pretentious statements.

His "experience" is definitely a product.

If you look at the definition of product
1.a thing produced by labor: products of farm and factory; the product of his thought.
2.a person or thing produced by or resulting from a process, as a natural, social, or historical one; result: He is a product of his time.

Just because you say something is not something does not make it so. I am a banana.
