Quantic Dream COO Guillaume de Fondaumiere says that the Heavy Rain developer is looking forward to "other great things with Sony in the future"
Considering the fact that the PS3 gave Quantic Dream so much to play with, they had to praise Sony.
Sony supported them extremely well. I think it would be good to get an experience like Heavy Rain on the Xbox 360, but it would be an insult to Sony if they don't give them another exclusive. Excellent developers :)
Heavy Rain was great. Can't wait for their next game.
I was playing heavy rain last night and my dad comes in the room, then looks at my Tv and was like "what movie are you watching?" so I said, Its not a movie, it's a video game... then he's like" No, it can't be a game, they look like real people and they're even talking to each other" so I said.. yeah, games can do stuff like that these days. I even had to move my character around while he looked at my controller to see if they sync. Lol! so old school...
QD is an amazingly creative devel studio BUT I'm dissapointed on their technical performance. 5G install, WTH? major bugs in the game, WTH? HR deserved to be polished to the extreme, with not loading screens and no installs. Thats something I've come to expect from Sony associated devels. I'm waiting for them to release a patch to pick up the game. I hope they do better next time.
i got a game ending glitch :( my file won't load and i'm on the hardest difficulty without anyone dying. other then that one hiccup its awesome except when you have your gf watching and telling you to do this or that lol
The idea of Heavy Rain, like the controls and that, were really good - but the story, characters and 'choices' were pretty useless.
You literally just said the opposite of everyone else.
choices useless i can see you haven't replayed the game...sad =/ thats kind of the point.
Sony should just buy Quantic Dream
The Idea of having a Dev like QD will benefit Sony in 2 Ways cuz QD not only is Gaming Developer, also is a Mo-Cap Studio
I so think that would be awesome. I think if Sony did buy Quantic Dream would be a smart move and investment. Like Sikbeta said you would get not only a good development team but also a good mo-cap team too. Just think how cool it would be if Quantic Dream and Naughty Dog got to work together. Seeing QD would now be first party could allow for some really cool things. Phil Harrison may not be around any more but before he left he made a smart move in getting Sony to work with QD to bring out Heavy Rain. So I would love to see QD become first party. It could only bring great things.
This game is amazing and Sony needs these developers under their umbrella. creativity will make sure your platform stands heads and shoulders above everything else. HR is an experience that can only be on the PS3. BUY THEM SONY.
Seems like they're there to stay - with Sony
Cage was extremely happy with heavy rain sales i mean for such a niche genre to sell 600k or something is amazing.
Thanks QD for an amazing experience and I look forward to your future projects
Heavy Rain was a great game, the best game this year IMHO (yes butterf*ggot, thats not just my opinion either, loser :P)
a PM, shazui? I've reported this as Offensive, and I can't believe people are just blatantly allowed to say stuff like this in the Gamer Zone still.
Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoyed Heavy Rain, but you can't just put out another game like that straight away. I wouldn't expect to see anything until the very end of this generation at the earliest...
Why not? Games like this are all about story and interaction. They could put out another one next month, they just need to make sure it's not another thriller. Maybe they could do horror, adventure, or even love story as they mentioned they'd like to do. The possibilities are endless.
But what if the next game is better on story/characters/choices/conse quences/Graphics and controls ? It doesn't have to be a serial killer/police story either. There so many themes fantasy/adventure/scifi/drama /comedy/conspiracy etc that could be implemented in the evolution of this format. If the next game is just more of the same with a story of the same level of quality (not so good) then maybe you are right and we should wait a few years.
um no they can't just release another one in a month. Maybe not even a year. The amount of dialogue that needs to be written and recorded is astronomical. Not to mention the programming needed to make all the new animations, branching paths, level design, etc...You're kidding yourself if you honestly think they can bang out another game in a month. Since the engine is complete, it would probably take less time but not that much less.
David Cage is starting, or at least, recruiting Technicians. There is an Article saying David Cage is planning maybe a game with Multiplayer, there are not more details. Obviously, QD and David Cage takes a lot of time to develop for a quality product and Ideas, and more time will take if that game have a such heavy script and magnitude like Heavy Rain.
I would love to see an open world detective story using the game play of Heavy Rain. A story in the same way as The Big Sleep or The Maltese Falcon.
and I expect great things from QD
You see, some developers are eager to work with/for SONY. With others console makers, money first or no deal. Funny no?
Just what I wanted to hear. More original games will be on the way...
I don't know about u guys... but Heavy Rain was AWESOME! This iz great news ta me. I really would love ta c how they expand on this genre. Thanks Sony & QD! BTW: when's HR DLC coming? I wanna get that! Game on.
HR is amazin, my favourite game after mgs4. Just cut my finger off, sayin ' me ' because my real name is ethan too :) my parents jus sit and watch, they love the fact it's like a movie with choices
Good! I look forward to more great things from this Sony + Quantic Dream Alliance!
I look forward to more games from them. Just now finished Heavy Rain and I loved it. Got through with 3 characters alive. Now its time to go through with all 4!
