Launching in early 2010, Sony and Quantic Dream will be releasing a major PS3 hitter in the form of Heavy Rain. Though David Cage of Quantic Dream does confirm a demo will hit.
Henshin a go go baby!! (fast forwards time)
oh man i hope its not big like MAG's beta and GOW3 demo
im suprised there is a demo i really wouldnt have expected it from a game as complexed as heavy rain but the real question is..how big is it gonna be
You win! *seductively*
WHEN THE DEVIL IS A ROCKIN' DON'T BOTHER KNOCKING, BABY YEAH!
Taxidermist stage they showed at that one event maybe a year ago. Short, concise yet detailed enough, and it wouldn't spoil anything for the main game. Plus it's already done so why not.
It's nice to try before you buy.
Awesome, this game is made for ME and I don't care if it's like a movie or not, I'll enjoy it non stop
Seeing as how it's not an actual part of the game, it would fulfill its purpose of letting players know what kind of game Heavy Rain is. All that, without having to spoil any parts of the story.
The demo will not be able to get the people in the story enough to make them feel for the characters meaning people will not like it. I heard the first 3 levels are about learning one of the characters where you do things like take care of your son. This is probably a very stong story driven game.
Continues to pour down hard on all BoTs But for the PS3 owners the Sun is always shining
Are you sure that's the sun or the YLOD?
Lemme check......... .......nnnno it's the sun =)
Glad there is a demo
Supposedly it's gonna be a demo this weekend at the playstation event here in Mexico here's the the link http://www.sony.com.mx/cone... ...so maybe true
That should be pretty awesome. I dread to see how big the file size will be. Can't wait though!
Almost Every time I hear this guy talk, he's either trying to defend the game against "naysayers" or he's talking about being nervous or unsure about how this game (his game) is going to fare to the public. This guy is kinda wishy washy and just unsure. I mean, if you show such uncertainty about your game, if you're so nervous about showing and selling it, how can you expect people to be sure about purchasing it? David Cage needs to man up and just show the freakin game already. My take on observation.
He has a reason to be worried, because most of the mainstream gamers love fps, 3ps, and slasher and these types of games don't usually do well. Add onto that the fact that all these media outlets are quick to bash a ps3 game and no doubt are gearing up with the QTE comparison, he has alot to be worried about. Take Indigo Prophecy (his previous game) for instance, awesome game but terrible sales numbers. it doesn't matter to me cause I'm buying this day one cause I love different games and great stories.
Gamers everywhere will pan it. You know they will. It will get amazing reviews and those of us that actually PLAY it will enjoy it. That's how Indigo Prophecy was. That's how this will be.
What NYC said. This game is outside the box. A step if not a leap into the "art" side of gaming. (At least from we have seen and been told) He is defending the game because he knows its a risk to make a game like Heavy Rain. As far as we know, the "public" generally into FPS and action games.
PS3 exclusive get hammered to hell and those that exceed by miles still get lucky to scrap by with 8.9-9.2 no how insanely great they are. These is a non-mainstream genre and we've seen how gamers have been lackluster but anything that isn't shoot shoot shoot, blood blood blood. Well Mr. Cage, GW, You've got a sale from me. Now you need atleast 499,999 more. I wish you good luck and God's blessings. We desperately need more developers like you around.
He should be worried. No matter how good the game is, it's very likely sales will be terrible and review scores will not reflect the quality. The genre is too neich and he's trying to point out that it's not just QTE from idiots who keep saying it is, even after they show movement and gameplay. Basically, he has an uphill battle.
He sounds a lot like Denis Dyack with Too Human...and gamers that supported him were saying pretty much the same thing... Only time will tell. It would be a huge pity though if the gameplay isnt on par with the graphics and story, it would be a big waste.
It looks like an indigo Prophecy situation all over again. I sure hope this game gets an audience because I don't know what I would do without this types of games. I like variety in my collection. Not to mention I loved the heck out of Indigo Prophecy. David Cage has said in an interview that they took everything they learned from Indigo and made this game better so I can't wait to see what is in store for us gamers.
This is the first time I really hope a game sells millions. I find the lack of genres since last gen disturbing. HR seems to be a 3d graphic adventure game, sort of like a new genre or at least an evolved one. If this game sells very well maybe there will be old genres bought back or maybe even new ones released. Would be nice to see space combat games, mech games and dare I say FMV games return. Would be awesome. As for the demo, it isn't needed for me. I know this game will be a high quality special game deserving of a buy. Moment of sale buy for me. We really need more Devs like QD willing to take a chance.
i really want Heavy rain to succeed ... thankfully i 'm influential enough to convince some people to buy it ... so he has at least 3 copies sold already .. i did not want a demo but if it's a demo like indigo i might kind fo want to play it ... the demo should be an rea of the game with exploration , no spoilers of the main story with some action ... with at least 2 characters ( not necessary playable but to show them )
I would absolutely LOVE to see this game do well. Finally what seems like a proper mature game. One that really appeals to us gamers that have grown up. I'd love to see this sale well as a sign to the industry that not everything has to be a shooter these days. And also to show that games are for mature adults as well, shake that stigma that it's just for kids.
games. Everyone let me know how this one is.
Agreed. I think I'll be avoiding this demo, even though I'm very much excited for the game and can't wait to get my hands on it. I was even avoiding the Uncharted 2 demo until I realized it was a multiplayer demo. I'm not even watching any videos of this game anymore either.
Hell yes! Sign me UP!
cannot wait been looking at some vids of it that have just been released they look stunning looking forward to this
They market it well. With graphics like those, and from the fight scenes i've seen...I know they can put together a commercial or a series of commercials that would have people waiting anxiously for a release just to see what it's about. I for 1 will be purchasing this day 1, and Ive never played indigo prophecy or whatever that was, but I will have to check it out one day. I hope everyone that 's on the fence about this game realizes that the only way we'll get Devs to experiment and create new games or even new GENRES is if we show support for the ones working hard to give us a taste of something new and exciting.
Go play Indigo Prophecy asap! Awesome experience, although the ending is a bit bizarre.
Advertising will definitely go a long way. They need to advertise on SyFy channel in the evenings and weekends during shows like Heroes and Fringe. I need to pick up Indigo Prophecy as well or rather Fahrenheit for the PC since it's unedited.
They have to know releasing a demo for this game is risky, and yet they make no excuses. They are so proud of what they are doing they are willing to put it in the line of fire with a demo for a game this complex. Imagine having a demo of Fallout 3? it would suck Kudos to QD, i will buy this baby asap
No thanks! I want to be every bit surprised when I pick up the game on day 1! It's hard enough not to watch videos on this thing.
I just hope Heavy Rain's gameplay will *smack the hell out of every naysayer and fanboy deeming it a QTE-based game. Day-one purchase knowing that Fahrenheit delivered (weird ending) but the gameplay mechanics had my heart pumping unlike any other.
I hope it's not from the game. It should be a tutorial slash a prelogue story. Something that introduces the story and leaves a cliff hanger with out ruining anything.
Not gonna lie, that's a pretty good idea! Are you sure I didn't think of it first?
LoL. Maybe, I've thought that is the only way they could do a demo right. Just give the prelogue or maybe the tech demos from E3
I NEED THIS
@TheTeam06 You show tremendous dedication. You can never be to safe it's always better to check! Smokey the Bear out!
thank you, thank you!
...where are all the xBox 360 Exclusive Game Demos??? Have Micro$oft Given up??? Seems that way??? Oh well... ;)
i dont think is a good idea to release a demo for this game how bout if the demo sucks and people wont buy the game, will ruin sales hugely=[
I think the corner store robbery scene looks like it would make a good demo. You get a little of the action in sneaking up behind the guy, a little of the dialogue if he catches you etc.
The taxidermist scene done with the new engine would be enough it could stand on it's own, and not reveal the story.
