Quantic Dream’s David Cage has expressed his delight over the reaction to Heavy Rain across the web, observing that many gamers have commented on forums that the hotly anticipated thriller has convinced them to invest in a PlayStation 3.
Speaking to the chaps at IGN, Cage commented, “This experience should be available exclusively on PlayStation 3, and we want people to buy a PlayStation 3 because of Heavy Rain.”
“We’re really happy at the moment – and I hope it’s going to last – that when we go onto forums we find people watching the trailers and stuff and saying ‘this is the game that’s going to make me buy a PlayStation 3′.”
Heavy Rain is scheduled for release exclusively on PS3 in early 2010. We’ll have more on the game as it breaks.

Wonder what forums he goes to....

If they can give an actual release date for Heavy Rain then it COULD ACTUALLY SELL PS3's....

It's gotta be scary to know his work is going to be that heavily scrutinized. I know people that say they're definatly getting the game and got a PS3 because of it.

I would buy it for sure

I can see this being an incredible game but being critisized for being too different in reviews, which in turn will hurt sales. I really hope this lives up to the hype though

..yeah. This along with The Last Guardian. I know a few people who roll their eyes when I go on about the graphics in Killzone 2, or immersion in WipeoutHD, GT5, and so on. And then say that they'd much rather wait and see what Ueda will do on the ps3, or see how Heavy Rain shapes up, before buying a ps3.

I think arrogance is starting to take.

lol. rite. Man, I've been following this game forever and it's still got me confused. People who just introduced to it aren't going "THIS IS WHY INEED A PS3!"

i knkow i'll pick the game up thats for sure
- 1:46pm EST - November 4th, 2009
I just dont understand how everyone on earth doesnt want a PS3. It makes no sense to me.

Wow. He's kind of full of himself, isn't he? Granted, I appreciate/respect their attempt to try to make an innovative game (and hopefully not just one long interactive cut scene) but really, I have no interest in this game and there's a lot of other exclusive games like MGS4 and LBP which really showcases what the PS3 can do. I'm sure this game might be graphically impressive, but the story and the idea just seem kind of dull to me honestly. Who knows......

How many people really mean it though?
- 3:43pm EST - November 4th, 2009
