David Cage is a happy man as Heavy Rain has smashed predicted sales figures and has reached 1.5 million units shifted. He also hopes the game will pass the 2 million sales barrier by the end of the year.
. My older brother just got his new PS3 Slim + Final Fantasy XIII, God Of War 3, & Heavy Rain. He's totally blown away by this game. *2 THUMBS UP FOR QUANTIC DREAM & HEAVY RAIN*
And 2 thumbs up 4 your older brother
. Thanks man.
just unlocked a trophy :D
Really great ! and don't forget the competition and choice was huge at this time (unlike alan drake : just for the pathetic trolls who are talking of "failure" for 1.5M, poor uneducated brainless xbox fanboyz) new multiple account : cyber_crysis
why didn't you tell him to buy yakuza 3 as well ...??
. We could switch / borrow games on each other to save money, lol.
Those are really good sales numbers for a new IP and game genre. This was one of those games that had the potential to flop in sales due to the nature of being a unique game.
no its not, its a little.in every way u look at it. even for this so called "avant-garde" game, its not much.
That's definately not a bad lineup to break in a PS3. Might I suggest the Uncharted series next.
Your older brother sounds like a smart guy, also can I borrow your Yakuza 3.
You need to get UC1 & UC2 next. Well worth the $$$ with high replay value. Congrats on being a PS3 family. :)
heavy rain was the game that made me be a ps3 fanboy lol and uncharted 2.i just loved the quality of games that sony brings.
This game is a totally unique experience! I bought it day 1 and will never trade in my copy of the game. It is one for my collection! Come on Quantic dreams, announce horizon now!
I should dig through my history and find that prediction I made about Heavy Rain shifting two million copies within a year of release. I can't believe how many disagreed with me at the time. I bet they're all eating foot now. I bought mine day one, and I'll be there day one for Horizon as well.
What is this Horizon you speak of? Have I missed something? Is this QD's new game?
But I do intend on getting this game. But since this game comes with so much trolliage on N4G....I hope this game comes with a free bucket of complimentary popcorn. :)
Hope you get back into work soon mate, I was made redundant last year too and it's not fun, but am back in work so I'm lucky. And yeah man when you get back on your feet, Heavy Rain is definitely worth a buy.
Natsu X [email protected] alan wake not will reached in mark of 1.0 m life time... mark my words.
Without even looking, I would bet my car (2007 Mustang GT) against your car that Alan Wake has hit at least half a million units now....the game is only about 3 months old. I'm a hardcore PS3 fan, but if you are going to troll helghan666, do it responsibly and with reasonability, please...otherwise you become a blight to the PS3 community, in general. I won't take your bubbles though...just try to do better please.
Even with the promotional price drops and discounts, no one is willing to buy it. They still think it is not worth it. You hear this about Alan Wake all the time: "I'll just rent it later."
I love Alan Wake, but I can see why a lot of people wouldn't want to buy it. It's a fun game, but once you've played through it, there's no real reason to return to it. There's no multiplayer, and in all honesty, the story, characters and experience aren't anything spectacular. Even the DLC doesn't bring a whole lot of new material. It sucks. A multiplayer co-op would have at least extended the replay value......
Alan Wake has already moved 2/3 of a million units and the game is only 3 months old. by the time the game hits its 1 year anniversary it will have easily eclipsed 1 million....That's beyond logic that's common sense. And if anyone is trying to hang their hat on some "regional" number, let me remind you that this whole HEAVY RAIN article of 1.5 million is predicated on a WORLDWIDE number. I'm a hardcore PS3 fan, but I cannot stand for predictions of lunacy or crazy off the wall opinions. Trying to claim Alan Wake wont hit 1 million at a 3 month period when it's already 2/3 of the way there is pretty stupid, I don't care which console you back. Lets try to keep with the common sense...that's all. ok. :)
How many of those copies are sitting as used games at Gamestop or EB games right now? Remedy and MS don't make money on used game sales which is what someone who is iffy on the idea will buy. People were disappointed by it due to how much time it had taken to make and how much had been scrapped from it. I own and thoroughly enjoy both of these games and to be honest, I got more bang for my buck on HR than I did on AW in replay value alone.... Not to mention that people now read reviews of other users rather than just in magazines, a lot of user-reviews say the same thing unfortunately. AW will top 1 million, but not much beyond that unless the DLC the writer is absolutely fantastic.
I have a very strong feeling there won't be a Heavy Rain 2, Cage seems to want to make a new project next. If there is a new Heavy Rain it'll likely be made by a different team, perhaps with his supervision and consent.
This game is awesome, & the potential for developing the characters stories & the gaming mechanics is also very exciting. This game is a very big step towards being an interactive movie. Impressive
Good to see original games like HR selling well. It's sure to get a sequel now.
They are making a sci fi game next called Horizon and don't want to do a sequel.
I wouldn't mind seeing one or two of the characters from Heavy Rain (Jayden and Paige) in a similar mystery game, but not really a true sequel to Heavy Rain. I mean, you know who the serial killer is and he was likely killed at the end of Heavy Rain. No need to continue on with that one, but a new serial killer might work out.
I love the thought of a episodic mystery type game with maybe HR graphics or something. The only problem I have with it would be people letting you know who the killer was before you had a chance to play it yourself. I love mysteries to bad we don't have more games like this.
What'd be great is if in whatever game comes out, the culprit is interchangeable in each game with several sets of storylines. That would definitely protect against that spoiler-age and accompanying spoiler-rage. ;) But what's the likelihood that's gonna happen?
And the game hasn't even dropped its price! Its still launchprice in the EU, and judging from amazon.com its still around $60 in the US. So it will probably easily reach the 2 mil.
It's dropped to $39.99 in some places here in Canada.
Last time I trust numbers from an N4G member. Anyway, this and Heavenly Sword are must steal titles on the x360, too bad for me, they are Sony owned.
Yay, it reached it's the goal they wanted to reach by the end of the year! That's great considering the advertising was basically non-existent. Sounds like one of those word-of-mouth kind of things.
I was surprised when some friends from school actually knew about the game. One even mentioned that he has heard a lot of hype about it and asked if it was any good (he isn't a huge gamer) so I told him to try out the demo.
What did he think of it?
The story ends with this game, I am not sure if they can do a sequel. if they do go ahead and do a seuel, I will buy it day 1. That said, I hope Quantic dreams announce Horizon....maybe tomorrow> :-)
One of the endings has a sequel hook.
I forgot about that! My bad :(
I hadn't heard that. Will need to try and find this sequel hook.
there won't be a sequel .cage rather do something new ...the most we'll see is dlc to expand the world of heavy rain ..but that project was put on hold so they can work on the MOVE version of heavy rain .. ( something i doubt will sell )
its the booksigning part. Pay attention to the audio.
Unfortunately they won't.
it will do 500k lifetime and Alan wake will destroy UC2 in graphics and sales. Alan wake is a terrific game one of my fav games on the 360 but its kinda hilarious
that's what makes these corporate cheerleaders nothing but TROLLS, you will never see them own up to their statements and admit they got it VERY WRONG. They must think everyone is like them and only into shooters. It can be classified as a mental condition. Kinda like the person who argues with you on a forum and tries to win the argument by implying that EVERYONE on the forum is laughing at you and agreeing with them.
@kartik21 i also remember sony fanboys saying that killzone was halo killer
Yeah, Call of Duty ended up beating it to the punch. Still, all good games. Killzone has more of a Battlefield feel.
Yes Killzone is a Halo killer.It will soon kill Halo not this generation maybe the next gen or maybe the next gen but it will Kill HALO!!! Mark my words when the day comes.But Now Call of Duty Is A Halo Killer.
Technically that isnt possible since its not on 360. Now if were talking features vs features killzone 2 wipes the floor and shits out Halo. Yea Halo has a video capture, but what good is that if its subhd.
The Devs are beginning to see where the real money is...PS3
Good to see something new and original selling quite well.
Heavy Rain amazing game.
excellent for a new ip with a bold direction. this got my respect alongside mirror's edge, both tried something new and unique, and the sales were decent. these devs have balls to do these kinds of games, and keeping the video game industry well fed.
The game certainly deserves the sales, and, with the upcoming move patch, sales should continue steadily
Yay for new original games!!! Hope Quantic game will make a new game similar to heavy rain.
Congratulations to Quantic Dreams and David Cage for taking such a risk that in the end payed off. I really believe the industry as a whole should take such risks more often. Demon's Souls is another fine example.
Great Work Quantic. Heavy Rain is apsolute GOTY. :)
i love this genre , its something different from what we play regularly
Amazing Game. I will play it with Move Controller when it comes out.
I'll be replaying it when Move comes out. This time, I'll "try" to get the Platinum for it :)
Probably one of the best games I've played this year and F*CK F*CKIN Jim Sterling!
My older brother just got his new PS3 Slim + Final Fantasy XIII, God Of War 3, & Heavy Rain.
He's totally blown away by this game.
