Heavy Rain director and Quantic Dream founder David Cage has hinted that his next project could be a multi-platform release.
aah damn, I thought Heavy Rain to Xbox
the heavy rain ip is owned by sony
I highly doubt they will go multiplatform, more like Sony will buy them.
Are you smart enough to get that ?
more cashings =D I still don't see the average 360 owner appreciating / buying a QD game unless it consists of shooting aliens
They own the Heavy Rain IP. I think Sony will let QD go what ever way they wish with no ill will. No matter what they do, odds are the game will be on the PS3 either way.
He never mentions the 360, just "other platforms"; could be the 3DS for all we know. Selective journalism ftw.
360 is the most similar platform to PS3, so when David Cage says that his studio is looking at a multi-platform release from a studio with PS3 experience, people assume it's 360 and not 3DS, N64, Neo Geo or Sega Saturn. Of course, it could be PC and not 360, but people just like to take a short-cut and guess a little. So do I. But yeah, one would think at least the topic title could keep it clean.
The article says "other platforms". Never once does David Cage mention the 360 specifically. But who cares? I thought Heavy Rain was nothing but one long QTE movie, right? I mean, that's what certain fanboys would lead you to believe...
@Tommykrem And from where did you take this thing with PS3 like experience, anyway? I'm not even saying it's not 360, but have you considered that maybe David Cage wants exactly to avoid PS3 and it's similars? When people outsource they usually do so exactly so the comeout is different. Or this shortcut too absurd to you? What if he want motion controls? Than PS3 simliar is Wii, isn't it? What if multiplatforms mean two handhelds? And why does PS3 have to be involved? As far as this article tells it could be Wii, 360 and PC and it wouldn't go against what David stated. That's the problem with assuming things. You or me doing it here is fine, any journalist worthy his keyboard ain't.
the devs have just thought.. Lets port it over to make more money. I personally hate exclusive games, but I have both consoles so I can get all the exclusives..
That would be awesome, one of the best, and overlooked adventure games from the last gen. Now that people actually care about a solid Quantic dreams adventure game, it is time for Fahrenheit 2! Multiplat!
Sony won't buy Quantic Dream because their games don't have mass market appeal. Sony buys companies that appeal to the masses (Media Molecule, etc.). They backed Heavy Rain because they believed in the IP. It was a smart move. Heavy Rain is a great, original game--and there's nothing like it on any other platform. But Sony respects developers' desires to develop what they love. In QD's case, that's unique adventures. There's not as much room in the market for titles like Heavy Rain as there is for titles resembling Little Big Planet, Uncharted 2, etc. Personally, I don't mind if QD goes multiplat, as they have the experience to do PS3 justice. It WOULD bother me, however, if they didn't do the 360, Wii or whatever justice. I'd be willing to bet that they're really eyeing motion control right now, as they'll soon be able to create the same game on all 3 major consoles using the different motion controllers (or motion response systems: Kinect) in similar fashions.
QD is not owned by Sony, HR is owned by Sony and Sony always make deals with devs for more than 1 game (usually 3) developed exclusivelly for Playstation, after that devs can choose to extend their deals or go multiplat, that's called Second Party....
He didn't say it was gonna be another Heavy Rain game.
"But who cares? I thought Heavy Rain was nothing but one long QTE movie, right?" Thats the best part.. all of em flopped it. Came out, scored higher and sold better. It only does: Drama </end>
If the quality is teh same as Heavy rain on the ps3 then i have no problem :) although exclusives are always better :(
Do people just automatically ignore / forget the concept of "IP holding"? \ Also, I thought Heavy Rain was just an "interactive cutscene", to many 360 fanboys?
I still think it sucks and I'm a proud PS3 owner. Just because I have a console doesn't mean that I have to buy every exclusive and love them and praise them. I seriously don't like Heavy Rain or Little Big Planet, yep I just said that.
You do know Indigo Prophecy was on xbox right?
the indigo prophecy ip was owned by quantic dream and the game was published by Atari
Well since most people here tend to label me as a 360 fanboy, I'll throw in my opinion. I think Heavy Rain was brilliant game, it was simply amazing and I loved it. On a side note though, its not just many 360 fanboys saying it's an "interactive cutscene", when some of my PS3 friends saw me playing it and asked me about, soon as I told them how the game played, they said it sounded "stupid" or "boring". Oh well, there loss I guess.
And that means what? I dont give a rats ass who published it. We are talking about the Developer Quantic Dream. It's the same as Insomniac making games for the 360. What does Atari publishing I.P. have to do with Q.D. making "ANOTHER" multiplatform game since that's what they do? There is no news here BTW, I wasnt even responding to your comment, so dont talk to me. I was responding to the comment about "xbox owners saying heavy rain is an interactive cutscene." It was pretty much like that, but it was already experienced since I.P. did the same thing. That's Quantic Dreams modus operandi. Its the exact same type of game with better graphics. Young and dumb PS3 only users think this is some new sh!t when it's actually 6 years old.
Next game not heavy rain is what they are talking about i think. Still hope it goes with a more action based gameplay something more the a interactive movie you know a game with good story a logical story where soldier can be a hero not some nobody that never handled a gun that can go rampage against elite special forces.
Haha, Organge-Skittle LOVES personal attacks. Nerd Rage ftl.
Hate to rain on any fanboy parades developing here, but Heavy Rain is actually their only exclusive game. Their first game didn't even see release on a Sony console. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
omikron was amazing i really hope for a 2nd one with bowie in it again, i think what people are getting confused about is that heavy rain WILL NOT be on 360 but there is no reason there next game wouldnt be multiplat.
The question is whether they will work with Sony again on a first party basis. I don't think their next game will published by Sony since Sony likes to own the IPs they publish and QD likes to own the IPs they work on. But I do think they will work with SCE in the future. Right now QD should test the market for their type of game and see how the other bases react to it. If it's not positive they can always come back the the PlayStation and release an other great title.
i own a 360 and ps3 and i love QD Heavy Rain was amazing and so was indigo prophecy if they make another multiplatform game more power to QD
Word. I think a similar game using Kinect would be awesome - better than anything Microsoft has showed us thus far for Kinect.
i doubt it cage already saw the problem of doing multiplat with their previosu 2 games ..the pro of staying exclusive should be higher .. but hey with dev costs being higher than ever ..i realise how hard this must be.
It wouldn't be the first time they made a game for the Xbox - they released titles on the original Xbox. That being said, I think sales of titles like Alan Wake on the 360, or really anything that's not a shooter, would probably give them pause over the PS3. When it comes to shooters, the Xbox 360 fans love em - but everything else is so hit and miss I don't know as a developer if it would be worthwhile.
do 360 owners realy care? Halo reach is more than enough
Quantic Dream may or may not go multiplat with their next game, but it won't be on the 360. Cage said several months ago that their next game would be out next gen.
at least we get a new game!
Agree 100%!! Just like Biowares Mass Effect coming to PS3, Quantic Dream games deserve to be played by as many gamers as possible. Hope we hear some news soon, like real soon!
When it comes right down to it, I agree with you 100%. These guys take risks and they're very talented. They deserve good sales and recognition for their efforts, and by whatever means necessary I think it is only a good thing if they get those sales.
Well if it is going to be their next game to come out, it could be years before anyone gets to play it.
What a very non-fanboyish thing to say. Good for you. We need more of that around here.
but alas you both get disagrees for being an anti-fanboy fanboy by n4gs logic.
More games for everyone. Nothing wrong with it.
Yeah that whole Final Fantasy death threat fiasco really scared them straight. ALL ABOARD THE 360 TRAIN. lol
Another platform doesn't automatically mean the the Xbox360. He could easily create a game for the Wii, PC, DSi or even the iPhone. I could see a Heavy Rain type game going down very well with all the Nintendo parents out there.
or even the psp,who knows?
Xbox 360 who knows?
I lolled that you got bashed by disagrees just for the mere mention :P - Hope you're right!
And you got bashed with disagrees for mentioning him getting bashed by disagrees. What angry, sad people roam the comments section?
It's a vicious cycle.
the question really is why would you wanna put a game on the wii ds psp those systems suck 360 and ps3 have all the good games Nintendo is in love with sholveware and psp is dead besides persona 3 portable
Ah shoosh. You're not exactly going to actively ignore the #1 selling console in the us [based on last NPDs] which also has the highest software attach rate now would you? There's a reason to be logical.
You'll get death threats! You'll be labelled a back stabber even though you do not owe anyone any allegiance. Seriously though David, you'll let us know when the death threats start right? Cos those make for great articles
You don't even own a PS3.
He'll get death threats even though it'll still be on the Ps3 as well as the other console. It's like a child wanting to be the only one with a popsicle and getting angry at someone else having one.
I'm just going to say this. Quantic Dream going multi-platform would be a huge smack in the face to Sony. Especially considering the chance of any other company supporting a game this "unique".
Quantic Dream were multi-platform before they did Heavy Rain so why would this be any different?
Did you read my comment? Even better yet. Did you read the comment below mine?
He did, and it made you look a cock.
Quantic Dream did Indigo Prophecy you idiot. It was released on Xbox and PS2. It's even on 360's GAMES ON DEMAND(XBL). They are not a Sony company or exclusive franchise developer. Try reading sometime you idiot. The game is not unique considering they have already done it with Indigo. It's the same thing except with better graphics. Shows how much of a gamer you truly are. Stop the fanboy bullsh!t. Makes you look stupid.
Indigo Prophecy was not nearly the hit Heavy Rain has turned out to be. In Cages own words: "We're really thankful of Sony's support and the relationship we have because there are very few publishers that would have supported Heavy Rain the way they supported us." It wouldn't be a slap in the face by any means but there would probably be no Heavy Rain if it wasn't for Sony. Both parties deserve credit for pushing for the project. They are actually and exclusive franchise developer since no one else has worked on Heavy Rain and no one else probably will. And the game is actually unique since there is really only one other game like it (aside from the point and click PC games of the 90's which I consider different enough). Next time you call people out, be right. Also stop being such an asshole. It looks like you've been here a while so you know the "fanboy billsh!t" will never stop.
We are not talking about sales numbers or what's a hit and what isn't. the comment was about Quantic Dream being an exclusive developer to Sony. We are not comparing an Xbox title to a PS3 title since timing has everything to do with it. We can read about games, get demos, and see trailers these days promoting games unlike before when you had to have mag subscriptions and hopefully a demo disc included. Marketing is different these days. All these people that talk about KillZone 2 being so great never even played KillZone 1 on PS2. Don't come in here trying to correct me unless you stay on topic. This is the comment I was responding to, so back the f#ck up when addressing me. Quantic Dream going multi-platform would be a huge smack in the face to Sony. Especially considering the chance of any other company supporting a game this "unique". How does this have anything to do with what you said to me, you bubble whore.
@orangeskittles but you are not going to get people to understand by calling them idiots and such. That will just make them mentally reject every point you make. No matter how much sense you're making. you know the old saying: you catch more flies with honey th... oh and by the way, Heavy Rain really IS unique among the sea of shooters we have these days. (unique does not mean there's nothing else like it, because then nothing would be unique. It simply means that something is distinctive.
It's funny how pissed you guys get when I say something you don't like. It doesn't make me a fanboy, it's truth. Cage said himself that "We're really thankful of Sony's support and the relationship we have because there are very few publishers that would have supported Heavy Rain the way they supported us." I couldn't care less who Quantic develops for, but if Heavy Rain goes multi, I would lose more respect for them than I've already lost for you. The people in this site are ridiculous.
his next game is still PS3 exclusives and it will be with MOVE,maybe later on they will do something multiplatform but as of now they are PS3 bound,1.because they have a contract with Sony for another game,2.for the respect they have and the trust Sony had in them ,lets not forget that Heavy Rain project in the beginning was turned down by M$ Another thing, to go multiplatform they need to have a lot of money to finance their project or to find a publisher,Sony finance Heavy Rain,of course everybody thinks to spread their business,its normal,but that doesn't mean like this article says it will be their next game,sometimes this so called journalists are pathetic,for once they should use their brain when they write something
How will they fit "Horizon" on one DVD? Hopefully not by gimping it down to multiplatform standard.
Put it on 2?
This "multiplatform standard" BS is the stupidest thing going around and I'm sick of seeing it. Storage space doesn't translate to game quality, buddy. If it did, so many of the multi plat games wouldn't be looking better on the 360. But hey, maybe they "gimped" RDD down to have it run well on the Ps3. Just going by your mentality here. I mean it didn't look as good, so they must have "held back" the 360 version. Right?
I'm still gutted that Sony made him and his team make a 'move' edition rather than the DLC stories he was going to do. I played the move edition Heavy Rain at the Sony Beta Room thing in Birmingham and it doesn't really add anything to it. If you have played Heavy Rain inside and out (like I have) there's no point in this version.
I actually thought the Move controls on Heavy Rain were worse than using a pad.
