Rumors that Quantic Dream’s thriller Heavy Rain would eventually incorporate support for Sony’s PlayStation Move motion controller have been swirling for a while now, helped in large part to the game’s creator, David Cage, revealing last month that his team had originally planned to include motion control support in the game. Obviously, that didn’t happen.
However, now that the PlayStation Move will be released later this year, Cage and company have apparently decided to revisit their original motion control plans. A Sony representative confirmed Move support for Heavy Rain in an interview with a Belgian gaming magazine that was later picked up by Gamer.nl (via Eurogamer).
This is hardly surprising news, especially given Cage’s previous statements about the role that motion controls played in the game’s early development, but it’s still good to know. Now we’ll have to wait and see how Move is integrated into the Heavy Rain experience. All I really want to be able to do is use Move to make a half-cooked omelet. Then again, I’m a simple man.
