Quantic Dream bigwig David Cage has said there’s still plenty of room for improvement in regards to developing on PlayStation 3, noting that hotly anticipated thriller Heavy Rain marks the developer's first experience in working on the console.
"Well, you need to keep in mind that Heavy Rain is our first title on PS3. It's not the second or third generation of games on the same platform. We've just discovered the platform right now. So yeah, there's plenty of room for improvement I'm sure,” Cage told the chaps at VideoGamer.com
"At Quantic Dream we know we can do much better than what we do here,” he added.
Heavy Rain sports some of the most impressive visuals seen on Sony’s black box to date (or any other platform, for that matter), and is currently pencilled in for release exclusively on PS3 in early 2010.

Farenheit was a really innovative and good experience and i think this goes to another level.

This game looks like a movie... SUCH A WINNER HERE!!

Cage won my money through his dedication :)
i said it once and i'll say it again....i wish i had some :(
considering how this trumps, visually, anything currently available in the market now or for the forseable future i cant help but think what the're next game will look like. but lets just worry about the first one shall we. i cant wait to dive into this games story :p

First, hat's off to Quantic Dream for creating such a visually stunning and innovative game (even though it hasn't been released yet). I've only had a chance to play the Indigo Prophecy (Farenheit) demo on the PS2 back in the day, but was blown away with the graphics, story and original gameplay of the game.
Now back to Heavy Rain, I'd rather wait for them to iron out the kinks in the controlls and cameras than to have a rushed product. They have a very good track record and I think are definately innovators in the business. 2010 can't seem to get here fast enough...

Yea after seeing that guy play a bit of this game, it definately looks good. Hopefully it doesnt get delayed too much.

Tho it is the first one, they have done a really amazing work up to now compare to other devs that already done some other games in the system.

nice.. its great to know, even though this game looks better than anything around, they just confirmed the PS3 can make games that look way better than this.

this game is kind of a "must buy" for me
- 11:25am EDT - August 26th, 2009
wouldnt say that this was the best looking game in the market. MGS4 still holds that title for me this generation.

you know, back when i first saw a PS2, my friend's bro who had it, said it looks like he was playing a movie, and it had the most amazing graphics at the time, compared to say, an N64 that we played. this is before i saw a gamecube or an xbox.
Now this game is the one ive been waiting for, to PLAY a movie HEAVY RAAAAAINNN

I Can't Wait for the Game to Come Out

Its in the same boat as SHENMUE! After playing shenmue I didnt think that there could be another game like it. Heavy Rain cought my eye and did it for me. Those are the kind of games that keep you on the tip of your seat. And they pusy out great story lines aswell.
