Now that it is a Greatest Hits title at $30 is the perfect time. Best Buy is having buy 2 get 1 free on all Greatest Hits so I got 2 copies of Heavy Rain and Uncharted 2 Game Of The Year edition for $60.

Not bad.

Weird though that Best Buy doesn't have it listed on their site. Hope the store near me has it...

Something I never understood. I thought when I first got this game it was going to have a wealth of DLC (or that was how it was portrayed) then all we get is the taxidermist. :/

Ha, yeah. Disappointment for sure. And the Taxidermist had crappy (or at least different) voices.

they could have made alot of money with dlc for this game it sucks they just did the one and then stopped. makes you wonder if there are others finished that will never see the light of day.

They stopped with the DLC because they and/or Sony wanted to focus on Move implementation.

Taxidermist is such a great add-on. It is short, but super intense. It has great atmosophere, a really sick and freaky one too. I find it better than the main game itself (flame suits on xD).

^^^ agreed. It was a nice little add on. The nice thing, since it was so small, I could play it multiple times, trying to get different endings w/o having to replay the entire story.

I wonder if they will attempt a 2nd game? It comes down to money...

Unlikely. Quantic Dream seems to be a company that generally cranks out new IPs for each game, which is something I appreciate about them. The only game they've made where there was even a sequel discussed was Omikron, which never materialized (though, really, I'd literally murder a baby to get an Omikron 2).

All that aside... would anyone really want a Heavy Rain 2? It's not really something that lends itself to being continued, and I'd much rather them create a brand new story rather than try and keeping going with Heavy Rain, even it was on the same engine.

Also, while I'd love a new game from Quantic Dream, they've thus far really only put out one game per generation. They did one on Dreamcast, one on PS2/Xbox, and one on PS3. I'd be really surprised to hear them announce another PS3 game.

Wants to see if this type of gameplay can be applied to first person shooters? Eh..

If QD were working on a 24 game, though.. :drool:

I really think Sony was used a scapegoat for the lack fo DLC. If you read into what David Cage said after he finished the game, he really didn't seem like he was up for making the rest of the DLC, despite already having them written out. And really, the move add-on did not take them that long to implement. They did that months ago and could have definitely worked on the DLC episodes after.

From March 2010:

"with Heavy Rain I feel like I'm done. I said what I had to say about this story and these characters and this is why there won't be a sequel, and this is why..I hope there will be a movie about the game but I don't think I will be personally involved in this....I need to move on to tell other stories"

The dlc though, who was it for? I mean to me it sounded like it was just something the higher ups/marketing wanted to keep the game off used store shelves and being in more cash post launch.

That instead of something the devs really wanted to do. Going back and spending time with the characters prior to game events sounds cool, but I can see it from the devs side - the main story and drama you wanted people to experience are done, time to forge sometime else unique unstead if tinkering around further.

Latest comments from David Cage at the BAFTA awards:

For our next project we’re going to build on what we have discovered with Heavy Rain. We own this genre of Interactive Drama and we want to show that Heavy Rain was not a coincidence; it is something that makes sense and we can build on it.
At the same time, we will not make a sequel and I made that very clear from the beginning, regardless of whether the game was a success or a failure, because I wanted to show that this is a new genre that you can use to tell any kind of story, in any style.
We’re going to be exploring a different direction, which will still be very dark and still for adults, but completely different to Heavy Rain. Our challenge is to satisfy our fans, and also surprise them.

Sounds promising. I wonder if the next game will be multiplatform. I can see them doing some amazing stuff with Kinect.

just started playing this game a few days ago and i really enjoy it. im using the move controller and its pretty fun. the game looks gorgeous but man that voice acting takes away some of the serious tone. a few early points in the game i can tell there trying to make me feel emotional but that shoddy voice acting almost makes it a joke. also lol

anyways im gonna keep on truckin.
