Heavy Rain 250GB PS3 bundle revealed on French Amazon, and others

There is probably no better deal for fans of big games like Heavy Rain who have yet to purchase a PS3 but want to than to buy the game already bundled with the system.

Good job then that Sony has taken notice, at least for France so far anyway…

Heavy Rain Special Edition exclusive to HMV in the UK

Heavy Rain is one of the most anticipated games coming out this year, and so we wouldn’t blame you for being interested in buying the Special Edition.

However, if you live in the UK your choices of retailer are very limited as the special edition of the game is exclusive to HMV.

PS3 Attitude’s Most Wanted Games of 2010 #2 – Heavy Rain

There have been a few sea-change moments in gaming since the fledgling days of bouncing an oddly square-shaped “ball” between two elongated digital paddles.

Polygons, online gaming, 3D – all are viewed as monumental markers in gaming history; bright and effervescent signs of progression and creativity.

We believe Heavy Rain will be another of these moments.

Heavy Rain Chronicles announced, Collector’s Edition detailed

After the promise of Heavy Rain DLC a few days ago, it has now been officially announced that “Heavy Rain Chronicles” will be released after the game via the PlayStation Store.

These are described as additional scenes for the game that will help you understand the back story of some of the biggest characters in the thriller.

Heavy Rain trophy alerts won’t disrupt the narrative

Heavy Rain trophy alerts won’t disrupt the narrative

For some of us, that delectable jingle of when a new trophy is earned is all we live for.

Popping up on the top right of your screen telling you what you’ve just unlocked, the little scamps also have a tendency to cause you to screw up whatever you were doing in the game at the time.

Considering Heavy Rain attempts to totally immerse you in an emotionally invested, heart-wrenching story, Quantic Dream have decided to stay such achievement celebrations until a more opportune time. Like, when your eyes aren’t full of tears and you can actually read the Trophy alert.

Heavy Rain DLC confirmed; demo highly likely

Speaking to our good friends over at Joystiq, Quantic Dream’s Guillaume de Fondaumiere touched upon the inherent difficulties of marketing Heavy Rain – a game that is such a departure from the usual gaming fare, people literally need to be shown it in order to get it. Hence, a playable demo before its release is highly likely.

Remarking how game testers have found the control system incredibly intuitive, it’s interesting to note how early players have not only warmed to the game’s method of interaction but state that, after a while, they also understand why the controls are they way they are.

It’s the EU and NA Heavy Rain pack shots

It’s the EU and NA Heavy Rain pack shots

Europe and North American may be two countries divided by a common language, but it’s the differences in box art which is where the real fracture can be seen.

Case in point, check out the following box art for next year’s Heavy Rain.

Though both contain the key imagery associated with The Origami Killer, there are a few noticable differences between the covers – namely the lack of rain on one and the presence of newspaper clippings on the other.

And the fonts differ. Can’t forget about the font.

Which one do you prefer?

GC09; Hands-on with Heavy Rain

GC09; Hands-on with Heavy Rain

Heavy Rain has got the gaming community in a spin, what with the stand-out realistic graphics, amazing sound and impressively large script.

But the game has also gained a fair number of detractors, stating that the ‘quicktime event’ gameplay is hackneyed and more akin to Dragon’s Lair than a PS3 blockbuster.

So it was with great interest that we grabbed a DualShock 3 controller and headed off into the world of Heavy Rain for the first time. Here’s the story of what it really feels like to play…

Heavy Rain = Heavy Writing = Heavy Playing

Heavy Rain = Heavy Writing = Heavy Playing

Heavy Rain has been making waves at GC09 this past week.

One of the snippets which has come to light is the length of script, and boy is it a mammoth. Not literally, obviously… That would just be ridiculous.

No, Heavy Rain has one of the largest scripts of any entertainment medium we have ever heard of.

For comparison, the average script is between 95 and 125 pages long.

Heavy Rain, on the other hand?

GC09; Heavy Rain trailer – “Everything I did, I did for love.”

The new Heavy Rain trailer shown during Sony’s conference speech at Gamescom got a lot of tongues wagging among those of us lucky to be there while raising numerous important questions.

Questions like, doesn’t Ethan look a lot like a young Alec Baldwin? Did Quantic Dreams’ David Cage really lose his kid in a supermarket for ten minutes or is he just yanking our chains? And, the most relevant one, where are you going for beers later on?

Thanks to GameTrailers, you too can now check out the new trailer and ask yourself the very same question posed to games journalists at the presentation: how far would you go for love?

Solution found for Heavy Rain trophies

Back in June of this year, Quantic Dream expressed their concern of implementing trophies into Heavy Rain, explaining giving gamers a shiny reward for completing goals in the game was not something they were looking to achieve.

Well, as you may know, Sony has made it mandatory that all games for the system must support the much-loved achievement system.

GC09; Sony Conference, full summary

We’re at GamesCom in Cologne this year, and the first order of the day is to cover the much-anticipated Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Press Conference.

Whilst the rest of the Internet has been awash with rumour and speculation, as usual we at PS3 Attitude have bit our lips (and kept the ‘Drawer of Secrets’ locked), preferring instead to wait for the official word.

And now that word comes to you via our people on the ground, (almost) live from Germany.
