Speaking at Games Convention last week, Quantic Dream boss David Cage said that Sony considered stunning thriller Heavy Rain to be “the most important title for next year.”
“A risk? I would rather say it’s an opportunity… If you listened to the keynote speech yesterday, David Reeves said this is the most important title for next year. I believe it’s an opportunity to expand the market, also.”
Cage was talking to VG247 during a demo of the title, adding that the game is also a hook for getting PS3 owners into “traditional” products.
“It’s an opportunity to get people on board with traditional games,” he said. “Everybody likes stories, like characters, likes emotions, and it’s an interesting way to get people playing on PlayStation 3.”
Heavy Rain blew away the competition at E3, showing a story of a female journalist investigating a series of disappearances and ending up in a house full of of dead, stuffed women. As you do.
More on later this week and next.
