Sony's Lucy Duncan has said that she believes Heavy Rain "looks brilliant" and that is "shows off the power of the PS3", but that funding the "original and innovative IP" was a "gamble" for the company.
Damn near every 1st party game they release "shows the power", that's what they're supposed to do. Kudos to Sony for all the new IP, Heavy Rain especially.
has a true and unmatched vision when it comes to Entertainment thats why they ruled the video games business in the psx,ps2 era and i hope their success to continue in this gen :)
It's not a first party game though, it's third party.
@Gaffyth Third party? how is so? I thought HR was funded by Sony. I mean: is HR a Sony owned IP? @Gaffyh bellow I'm almost sure HR is a Sony IP. QD is like Insomniac. I call third party games, those coming from other publishers.
this is starting to get a little cliche. EDIT but yeah sony knows new ip always help in the long run. I also dont expect this game to do so well sales wise at first, it may be like lbp and sell 200k at first. but look at little big planet now. but then again if this game gets the publicity from the news for showing tits and @$$ and what not. people will buy it just like modern warfare.
I don't think Sony needs to really promote the power of PS3 anymore, we've all seen what great things it can do. At this point you have to be blind to not be amazed at the recent games PS3 has had.
Quantic Dream is a third party developer, i.e. not Sony-owned, though Sony may own the Heavy Rain IP (not sure about that though).
Quantic Dream is a 2nd party developer i think. It is the same with Insomniac. As long as Sony funds the project and owns the IP its called 2ndparty.
Visual yes, gamplay no, while it does look good the gameplay hardly pushes the Ps3, no physics involved or anything, if ya know what I mean. Day 1 anyway
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... yea sony owns the ip
because Heavenly Sword and Resistance:FOM showed me the power of the PS3 years ago.
Funny thing is while you tried to troll with your point (if i misunderstood , sorry in advance , it's hard to tell with some of the people around here) , it kinda did . Even by today's standard Heavenly sword is still beautiful and very good . And well Resistance was a more than decent launch game .
wonder how better everything will look when the idle spu is unlocked, look at the PSP after they unlocked the processor on there the games started looking way better
me...? trolling? I don't think so baka. are you new here? XD
Again sorry :p . But i rarely see HS an ROFM not being bashed here for little reasons .
....yeah becuase everyone keeps acting like Fahrenheit never existed >_>
Well everyone did ignore Farenheit when it was out , sadly . And while i expect the same fate , only less harsh for HR ... it made an impact because it's a quite good looking game , and it still improved a lot upon what was in Farenheit in terms of gameplay and choices .
Sony: Heavy Rain 'shows off the power of PS3' AND: ·Uncharted Drake's Fortune ·Killzone 2 ·Uncharted 2: Among Thieves +NEXT: ·God of War 3 ·The Last Guardian Gamers FTW!!!
I know Sony is trying to hype this up and they are nervous because of MAG but most the people in here won't even buy this game so why bother SONY. The Power of PS3 can produce static Movie games?
We Won, POG, Why Dis, Moneybuyseverything etc etc, reported as spam.
I'm so glad Sony took a risk with this game. I'm sure all the intelligent gamers out there are tired of the same old formula. We really need as many innovative games as possible.
nevermind this comment...
Its true that one spe is disabled, but its not functional in most ps3's. When producing a cell chip, you don't always get 8 working spe's. Most have a defect with one of the spe's, and that spe is usually the one that is disabled. Sometimes you may even get cell chips with 2 defects, but those could be recycled for other uses. With one perfect fully functional cell chip produced, there are many more cell chips with a defect in one of the spe's made. This is why Sony went with 7 SPE's - to make it cheaper for them.
Personally, I still think Uncharted 2 is the best way to impress or help someone decide whether to get a PS3 or not. Just sayin'.
That's cool and all but I would go with KZ2. That game is a graphical monster.
Both Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 should be in every PS3 owners library. IMO
Well, UC2 is a graphical monster but you haven seen HR yet. Dont forget to support the game and judge the visuals by yourself.
·Uncharted Drake's Fortune ·Killzone 2 ·Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ·Heavy Rain ·God of War 3 ·The Last Guardian Are All Monster, at this point if someone don't already decide for a PS3 is cuz a).he don't like SONY or still believe that SONY killed his pet (?) or b).cuz the Person don't have the Money to pay one Gamers FTW!!!
Gran Turismo 5
Every game should show the power of a console. If it doesnt it means lazy devs (FF13). IMO it doesnt really matter if its on PS3 because Mass Effect 2 got the same review scores as this. Well done Sony.
All PS3 exclusives show off the power of the PS3 from the breathtaking graphics of Uncharted 2 to the staggering 256 players online of MAG, none of which are possible on other consoles.
You sound like you are trying to get Kevin Butler's job..
haha yes they do, but these games can be coded for the 360, BUT they would have to downgrade various aspects of the game, its a fact.
"haha yes they do, but these games can be coded for the 360, BUT they would have to downgrade various aspects of the game, its a fact." Yes, they could be ported but then MAG would be 32 players instead of 256 and Heavy Rain would look like Indigo Prophesies for the Xbox and PS2. Sure you could port them but you would lose all that they are when played on the more powerful console, the PS3.
@D4RkNIKON SON OF A.........! @GUIDO Preach on brother!
ps3 power released in game like kz2 and uc2 a long time ago.
ps3 has lots and lots of power, its not surprise why were seeing so many great exclusives. one thing is to support ur 1st party studious, and another is actually having hardware that can support high power games.
.____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____|| 'Triple'A'Station 3' ;-P
The whole game made of interactive HiDef Scenes!!! Of course a Blu-ray movie looks better than a Game!!! Duh!!
Whether you like it or not. MGS4 LBP KZ2 Infamous Uncharted 1 Uncharted 2 Yakuza 3 Yakuza 4 Final Fantasy Versus 13 Final Fantasy 14 Gran Turismo 5 The Last Guardian Demons Souls Valkyria Chronicles Heavy Rain MAG All legitimate full fledge games that push the standard. We are not talking about DLC for 3 year old games here to fill the big emptyness. Suck it up bots. PS3 only does everything. The bottomline is that the JOKE IS ON YOU. Youre the biggest jokes this generation and you fking know it. People are laughing at you for having a RROD beta test heater. And since you own a 360 only, you automatically missed out on the games I mentioned above and more. hahaha THE JOKE IS ON YOU.
all hail sir ken he is right
How could you know? The game is not out yet. Unless you are a reviewer you have not played all of it.
KZ2,MGS4,LBP,GT5P,GT5,MAG, and of course UC1,UC2. All of those games are top of the line for graphics and well everything. Heavy Rain is going probably be my number 1 or 2nd favorite game this gen.
Expect to see an even greater power of the EpicStation 3 with games like Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3. "bu-bu-bu-bu-but the X-Engine!!!" :D
50 break boxes to process one tree from this game!
There almost just quick time events but you have minimal control. It reminds me of Night Trap back in the Sega CD days. Not too impressed.
hahahah. I see what you did there. We have a clown in the house.
Night trap used FMV. everyone knows that game sucked,hell even sega knew it. lol.
I saw this video and pre-ordered the game. I hate this game till i saw this video. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Hell yes it does.
How Sony? Buy letting us watch instead of play? Absurd little mini games chained to timed button presses... Please. Not to mention stiff, wooden, unbelievably bad voice acting. Yeah, the power is in your hands with this one. I've looked back on QD past games and realized it isn't just this game with bad VO work, either... It's all of them. Indigo Prof had some painful stiff dialect too... Not to mention stiff awkward animations. Like the time when you had to climb the fence and break into the hanger and find your friends. Who climbs a fence like that? Climb... Stop... Climb... Stop... Climb... Stop. Why not flud movements up the fence? Sony is backing these guys way too much... The sad thing is they did this with Lair too and it tanked, yet was actually a really good game. People just didn't wanna give it the change. This time out the game sucks all around the house.
Heavy Rain is not your average game. Its not a FPS, RPG, platformer..etc. Heavy Rain is more of an experience, where you see a story through the eyes of different characters. Its hard to give a score to this type of game, because there aren't many that have capitalized on quick time events; however, that doesnt mean the genre can't be great. Heavy Rain looks great, the gaming experience will be surreal and above all interesting and fun, at least in my opinion.
you sound as if SNE has you tied up in an undisclosed location, forcing you to play their games without food and water until you shout out w/ joy. I have some suggestions for your discontent: A.) Don't buy it. B.) Don't come into Heavy Rain - PS3 threads and try to "convince" ppl C.) *Try harder.
so Lair was good and Farenheit wasnt ? dear lo... ok let's just not bother here ...
I'll watch the cheese that is Heavy Rain for free on Youtube while you poon darts toss 60 bucks away on 30 year old tech... Dragon's Lair did this years and years ago. Have fun guys... Hope your game tanks.
So you'll "hurt" people's feelings by watching crappy youtube feeds , while you could just avoid something you obviously hate ? Or are you a mesmerized little mouse who cant look away from the snake ? And Dragon's lair did that already ? Yep that's kinda what we keep telling people about some of their action games abusing it , rather than actually having some action . Maybe they should actually cut heads rather than be told " just push square and we'll take care of it bubba!!!" And that include Lair , your so called good game . Lair was only good and great when it was called Panzer Dragoon , Drakengaard and Drakhan ... Why even complain about the lack of action in a game without it , is i guess beyond my ken .
@nogolis can you troll somewhere else ? please ? pretty please ? don't you have something to do ? playing a game perhaps ?
Why ? when he can just watch it on youtube apparently
your being to harsh on indigo, yes it was not perfect but it was ambitious, you cant say the same about most games released last year actually i wont go on, your obviously a troll and fanboy, i'll enjoy inovation which is lacking in games today while you continue your endless shooters
Heavy Rain does NOT show off the power of the PS3. Games like Uncharted 2 and KZ2 show off the power. Heavy Rain is a choose your own adventure using QTE's. Graphically Uncharted 2 and KZ2 are better. They both also have a lot more going on screen than Heavy Rain does at ANY given second. Character models look good in Heavy Rain but not to the point where Sony can say Heavy Rain is showing off the Power of the PS3. Sony is just doing BS PR.
idk the character models hold their own against u2, and kz2. I was kinda disspointed how small items , such as the razor and toothbrush looked in the tutorial that was just recently released. The water looked bland as well, and didnt interact well with the character, but this game should still pump a great visual experience.
this or that 360 game could look as good because that's all that ever happens as the media always uses PS3 games to compare best graphics. You never hear this or that PS3 game might look as good as that 360 game because we all know the truth already and that's why the pro-360 media is quick to jump on multiplatform games as the lone chance of ever claiming victory graphically.
You think that this game couldn't be done on the xbox 360? ahahahha It's a 720P native game. It's animations are stiff. It's texture detail is washed out and hidden behind a depth of feild filter. It's 8 hours long. it's chained timed button presses. What can't be done on xbox 360 again?
no 360 game has beaten UC1 nuff said
please......... FFXIII is proof that 360 cant handle a PS3 game. Gimped and still looks noticably worse. Here, have some some kibbles and bits....... all that trolling must have made u hungry
Ofcourse this game could be done on the 360. Who are you guys trying to fool? Look at Alan Wake. Heavy Rain is a QTE game...just like Space Ace and Dragon's Lair. QTE's don't push a console anywhere near it's potential.
@ themaxx You just showed that you really dont understand the game.
.....or Motorstorm 1 or Motorstorm 2 Pacific Rift. The Best Off-Road Racing games of ALL-TIME.
If you are agreeing with DIRTYHAIRYJOYSTICK and think that the 360 can`t handle Heavy Rain then it is you that doesn`t know hardware. Heavy Rain is not pushing the PS3 anywhere NEAR what Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 did. So if you think Heavy Rain can`t be done on the 360, then we know what camp you cook your beans and wieners in. Alan Wake looks just as good, if not better (character and environmental wise) than this game, and it uses real time action with numerous things going on at once on screen. NOT like Heavy Rain. Use your head. @Maddens Raiders - I enjoyed Dirt 2 more than any Motorstorm game. But we all know why you think Motorstorm is the best off road game...Cause you`re in the same camp with SuperStrokey1123 sharing the same beans and wieners.
I never said it couldnt be done, I just said you dont understand the game. Its not just QTE but think what ever you want. As for luigi's mansio.... I mean Alan wake, yeah not impressed with the either.
