QUANTIC DREAM facebook page: "We are very proud to announce that combined sales of HEAVY RAIN on PS3 (released in 2010) and PS4 (released in 2016) are now in excess of 4,5 million units worldwide. Kuddos to our fans!"
Well done, David Cage !
Nice one. Never got to play it because I walk into the living room and my bro is right at the ending with the biggest spoiler ever. I was like "what I thought he was....?" My bro: "Oh yeah eerr....this is kind of a big spoiler" FUAAAAAA
one of my top 3 favorite games from last gen. unforgettable experience.
What's up with the disagrees LMAO
This game was amazing. I loved every minute of it. I was crap at the qte's but it didn't take the enjoyment out of it. Well deserved sales.
The game is great. I never completed it however. Everyone was giving it a bad rap because of the QTE, but the story was on point. I should go back and finish the game. Still need to finish The Walking Dead as well.
Beautiful well done
Heavy Rain sold more than Gears of War 4
@ "Heavy Rain sold more than Gears of War 4" -- "Quantic Dream revealed that the combined sales of Heavy Rain on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3" --- combined sales. Heavy rain's been out for 7 years now. Gears 4 is.. "counts" 9 months old. sooo... why not compare it to the original gears of war, which sold 22 million? https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... Or compare it to the combined sales of Gears of war and Ultimate edition's 25 million? edit - i also don't see the connection to heavy rain and gears of war....
You are fake news
According to VG gears of war 1 on xbox 360 has 6.09 million. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... in comparison Halo 3 xbox 360 is 12.2 million. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... Minecraft 122 million <-- https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kBta... http://www.ign.com/articles...
"According to VG gears of war 1 on xbox 360 has 6.09 million. " thank you. and even still, it's combined sales were still far from the original gears xbox 360. which both virtually share nothing in common.
Wrong info you got there. Gears of war SERIES sold over 22 million meaning all Gears games combined as of 2014.
Haha Gears have not sold 22 million copies. That would make it the most sold game ever. Maybe the entire series.
And? Wouldn't that be an even bigger deal that Heavy Rain was able to even come near those type of sales in the first place? Consider heavy rain is not a big Triple-A Blockbuster shooter. Smh Why are you getting defensive? Also the first Gears of War regardless of combined sales never sold that amount. Smh Sad Is this how desperate the Xbox Community is in regards to relevance? You guys are getting your feelings hurt because something like heavy rain is matching sales of what should be MS biggest AAA Blockbuster title?
@devilogre Ummm according to vgchartz. Heavy rain is at 3.5ish
Exactly!! Because he's trolling and making himself look like a fool. That's like saying Halo 3 sold more then Bloodborne. Sounds a bit dumb, doesn't it?
You think Gears of War 1 sold 22 million? You fail and your own link shows how much so. That link says the entire Gears of War franchise as a whole sold 22 million, not the first installment which sold 5.88 million you fraud.
Arent you the fraud? Why not compare Heavy Rain sales to Gears of War 1 sales? Woops cant do it cause Heavy Rain would get annihilated lol...
Gears of War should have no problem annihilating Heavy Rain sales irregardless of the circumstance. The fact that Microsoft still refuses to give out concrete sales data for Gears of War 4, an installment in their second biggest flagship series, while Sony has no issue in revealing Heavy Rain's sales speaks volumes. P.S. According to VGChartz Gears of War 4 also hasn't even outsold Gears of War: Ultimate Edition yet.
Lol....Big accomplishment? I mean how long has Heavy Rain been on the market for? Oh 2 systems and still only managed 4 mil.. what a Fannie!!
A niche game that was different when it came out compared to a shooter? Hmmm, don't know if that should be a compliment🤣
You even comparing heavy rain and gears sales is f**king laughable you fanboys will reach for the stars when trolling its pathetic get a damn life
How come Gears of War does not have its sales scaling like this? Success is Not an inevitability. A game succeeds in sales because somebody believes it is worth it and justifiable to purchase the game. I would argue that even a game that is released a long time ago continuing to sell actually justifies its success because the community has had a lots of time to scrutinize the game. If you're going to claim that the sales of a game is unjustified it only really makes sense in a short window of time where someone was fooled to believing the game was of a specific quality but so many years actually kind of shows the game is a quality game if people decided to buy it even with all the information out about the game. Get over it this game matched Gears of War sales and Microsoft pumped a crapload of money into Gears of War being this big Triple A property. Get over it.
Well you'd hope that a game that was on two consoles would sell more copies than a game that was on one , don't you think
So Heavy Rain was on PS3(2010) & then PS4(2016) , which as far as i know are 2 different consoles
What about Gears 1 & 2 which were actually in the same generation as Heavy Rain? Last I checked XB1 doesn't have over 85 million consoles sold yet (like PS3 & XBox 360). Stop the trolling.
Wasn't really necessary, but I guess some people can't help themselves.
It actually sold more than any xbone exclusive with the exception of halo 5.
And Halo 1, 2, 3, 4 and Reach outsold Bloodborne, Nier: Automata, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Gravity Rush 2, The Last Guardian, Killzone:SF, Knack. etc.., etc.. Seriously... who cares? Mario Kart on the Wii outsold all of these games with over 35 million sold. Do you care? You trolls are sad.
Very cool. Am I the only one who hasnt played it yet? I have it sitting here for the PS4, just havent gotten to it yet.
Yes, out of 80 million PS3's sold, and 50 million PS4's sold, and factoring in the 4.5 million copies of this game sold, then you are definitely the only person who has not played it yet.
Lol. Good job. Many have yet to play it.
Buy Quantic Dreams, Sony.
Sony can have them. They make great movies and awfull games.
And what do you do? Troll and be so ignorant. At least they make money doing what they love, while you will never have diversity on Xbox because of that closed mindrd attitude
David Cage already gave an approval to be bought by PlayStation but knowing PlayStation, they would like how to see if their next game is successful. Naughty Dog took 3 games, Sucker Punch took 4 games to be bought but then again Media Molecules took 1 games to be bought. It just depends, if PlayStation believe it would be worth to buy the Studio. I believe they are worthy to be bought since Heavy Rain was awesome, specially the plot twist and Beyond Two Souls was great except the rush ending but overall they are a amazing team using an amazing engine.
Somehow I still prefer Beyond Two Souls
Somehow you are still being like that.
Beyond, for me, told its story better than Heavy Rain ( in terms of acting ) with the performances from Ellen Paige & Willem Dafoe, which were remarkable, and the rest of the cast did fantastic as well "in my opinion" But, Beyond was lacking in the gameplay department, compared to Heavy Rain, which was far more interactive "in my opinion"
I loved both!
Me too. Both had flaws here & there. But, both are amazing games in their own right.
It wasn't as good as Heavy Rain. It was still good though. Everyone has their favorites.
Awesome. It was such a good game on the ps3!
It really was. I've been tempted to buy it again for PS4 but I'd rather put my money towards games which I haven't played. I'm glad the game did well and I'm really looking forward to Detroit.
Yeah I'm the same. There's so many new games coming out that I'm really holding back on actually spending money on games these days. With everything that's been out I've only played Horizon and Breath of the wild and only just got kingdom hearts 2.8 AND I still want to get Nier Automata and Persona 5 + crash bandicoot end of this month. There's no way I can get remasters that I've played on top of all these. Edit: Plus, I got a Switch with games on the way for that too!
same here...but at the end I end up buying it anyway due to the discount for both Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls LOL (haven't even started Beyond 2 Souls yet) Love Heavy Rain so much. It gave me emotions playing that game
For me the games I've played this year are Resident Evil VII which I bought at the beginning of April and completed a few days ago. I've started on Nier Automata now (great game),Tekken 7 coming tomorrow, and Crash coming on the 30th! I won't be buying Horizon until I've finished Nier which, judging from how bad I am at the boss I'm at now, might be a while!
Now give us Fahrenheit 2 already
It's not gonna happen. David Cage want to build new IP, not established franchise.
Fahrenheit was so odd. I didn't play it back in the PS2 days but I purchased it as soon as the classic was available on PS4. Heavy Rain is up there as my favourite QD game and I enjoyed it much better than Beyond, with it's mish mashed story. I hear the PS4 version has a chronological timeline option, would have preferred that on PS3, too.
Beyond was okay, Heavy Rain was great. But Fahrenheit? God I love this game so much. Sadly they fcked up the Steam remastered Version big time. It was unplayable. Building new IPs is cool, but going back to a already established IP could work out great for them. Definitely hyped for Detroit tho.
Originally Beyond was going to be a sequel to Fahrenheit
Quantic Dreams doesn't make sequels for obvious reasons
keep tryng to do something new!!!! we need new games and not old crap.
??? They're making Detroit.... I'm not even sure how much of that team was even involved in it getting ported to PlayStation 4 but clearly Detroit even existing shows that porting heavy rain and Beyond Two Souls did not somehow hurt or setback the team from making new content.
Hopefully Detroit have a great story and plot twist as Heavy Rain.
it's an okay interactive movie, but nothing to go wild about.
4.5 million people disagree with you
It's more than that. David Cage want to tell a story for gamers. Even his reputation is somewhat a mix bag but he is still important to gaming industry.
Ugh, I'll never understand this way of thinking. Heavy Rain is a "Video Game" it may not be what you are personally looking for in a game, which is fine. Everyone's different. But, it's still a video game. It's a different kind of gaming experience. These games have a fans base that continues to grow. No hate intended to you.
I loved that game. I think it found the perfect balance between Game and Movie. Beyond: Two souls took it too far IMO. The controls were very strange and never really got into it. I still remember that infamous finger scene 😅 Hopefully Detroit will come out this year!
I pray that Detroit releases this year too! At E3, I hope Quantic Dream shows off a demo on stage or a story trailer, with a release date for this year!
I got to around 2 minutes into Heavy Rain, absolutely hating the controls, then it asked me to shake my controller to brush my teeth & I said f**k off and returned the game to EB Games. No game has made me hate it so much in such a short space of time. Usually I'd give any game more of a chance, but with this I just couldn't. Motions controls were last straw.
You don't have patience do you? Lol. Just kidding. A wise man once said - Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” Bruce Lee thinks you should give it another chance. This time, Empty your mind...
Well Done, David Cage & ALL who're apart of the Quantic Dream dev team! Heavy Rain is one of my personal favorite gaming experiences ever. I paced around my bedroom that night, questioning where I went wrong, having failed to save Shaun ( who died ) and cried myself to sleep. I'm so serious about ALL that. It happened lol. It really made me think how far I'd go to save someone I love... Apparently not far enough =( Anyways, I'm so happy to see the game has sold this well, and hope ALL who got to experience it, had an emotional & unforgettable time =)
Well deserved to all. Games like this are part of the reason I continue to support Playstation.
Oh wowser.. and I preordered and got this day 1 when it came out on PS3 back in February 2010. Wowser! That's been a minute :3
In other news. Vgchartz is off by over a million. Very trustworthy indeed. Lol
