PCN Review: Heavy Rain

Shak @ PS3Center.net writes:

"Whether it's been for good or bad publicity, Heavy Rain has been featured in the gaming news quite often, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this unique title and see what it's like for myself.

A fantastic experience and a must-buy title for most gamers, but not completely flawless." (Heavy Rain , PS3) 9/10

I hope it sells well, the game is top of Amazon bestsellers in the US, and pretty high up in the UK. Just really pisses me off that Sony haven't started advertising yet, even though this is one of the most advertise-able games in a long time.

Whatever the reason Sony hardly advertise any game. Probably they dont have the budget to put behind a marketing campaign for every first party game. I do agree HR could be a huge hit among the casual crow and Sony is just letting pass this chance.

Sony never knew how to advertise any of its products. This goes back to the 1970's up until now.
Sony never had to make huge marketing pushes for its electronics. Their products during the 1970's and 1980's were stellar.
Their AD push was always

"Sony, the one and Only"

That's all they had to do to sell their electronics. They exhibited quality. They never used major ad PUSHES. However when the recession hit in the late 1980's are early 90's and SOny like many other companies were forced to outsource its goods to cheaper countires, quality dropped and more competition entered the market. Sony continued to market its goods the very same way as ot did 20+ years ago. They still do this today...and for the most oart it does not work when you have direct hard competition.
Sony needs to have marketing for its stellar 1st party exclusives on the same level as what MS does for games like Mass Effect and Halo etc.

@1.2 - True, but I've never seen the amount of effort they are putting into promoting GOW3. They have that Slurpee deal, and a load of Spike and Gametrailers coverage coming very soon.

Another review for the 360 zombies to put in the "pretend it never happened" column.

tbh, I wouldn't bother. Even when the ME2 review came out, everyone said stuff like "great scores," even a lot of PS3 fanboys. Whereas 360 fanboys were like, "hahaha Uncharted 2 sucks."

There's no point even bothering arguing, if the game looks good to you, don't go by a review.
