In a recent interview, David Cage, boss of Quantic Dreams, has pegged Heavy Rain as a console mover for the PlayStation brand. Cage feels that the reaction the company has received from recently released trailers and demos only solidifies the fact that gamers are looking to purchase a console specifically for this game.
“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′,” said the Quantic Dream boss.
I agree entirely with Cage’s sentiments and expect many gamers to purchase a console once this game drops as it’s the type of title to define a generation of gaming.
