Heavy Rain 3

SCEE’s told MCV that Heavy Rain is currently suffering retail shortages in some places, but it insists new stock is coming to retailers next week.

The Quantic Dream thriller went in at number one in its first two days on sale in the UK in the latest charts released this morning: the first game to do so for Sony since Killzone 2 last February.

But Sony’s said it will need more “footwork” to acquire a copy right now.

“We have been extremely delighted with the demand for Heavy Rain,” said a rep.

“Whilst it isn’t out of stock we are aware that supplies are running low. There is still supply in the chain, but I’m afraid if you’re hunting for a copy it may require a little extra footwork. There will be more stock arriving next week.”

The company further added: “In the meantime we thank everyone for their excitement and their support for this title and also for their patience if they are still seeking a copy.”

The thriller is a fantastic game, judging by these reviews and our opinion. Shame we can’t play it, then.
