Heavy Rain

A big pre-release question about Quantic Dream's unique PS3 drama-game Heavy Rain has been answered. Before it came out, many in the gaming world were saying, "Sure, it looks amazing and innovative, but will it sell?" The answer: Yes. It will sell. According to a proud press release sent this morning, the game has sold a million units in its first five weeks of release.

"It has been hugely gratifying to see the positive response that Heavy Rain has received from gamers” says David Cage, the writer and director of Heavy Rain and CEO of Quantic Dream in the aforementioned press release. “It shows that it is possible to create games that break with convention, games that seek to tell complex stories, and games that can inspire unexpected emotions in players - and that such games can be commercial as well as critical successes. I hope that this success will continue to help pave the way for new, groundbreaking experiences."

Even if you didn't like Heavy Rain itself, you gotta give props to the team that made it and financed it. Putting that kind of budget behind a game that isn't a shooter, isn't a sequel and isn't based on a movie is amazing and encouraging.
