I'm actually glad now that my Gamefly used copy was unreadable and I got a refund. I will wait for this to go on sale. Thanks OP

Ridiculous. Europe and Asia have had this for months (maybe over a year?). I imported it ages ago. It's called Move Edition there.

It's funny that Sony accidentally leaked the box art for this months ago, when HR went to Greatest Hits. Clearly they just wanted to milk the plain version for the poor American suckers a little while longer. Not me!

Also, how is it a "director's cut" if they didn't add anything new? Derp.

I love heavy rain but they should have just put that dlc episode in the gh edition when it was released. I'll wait for this to get cheap

This is essentially the same as the original CE for the game in Europe.

Lame. I saw "director's cut" and I was hoping that they had secretly been working on DLC after they finished up with Move support.

I've got my launch day copy and I will be keeping it, though I do want those themes. This game is a masterpiece.

I always wanted to make a video where Ethan was running around yelling that and have Jason Vorhees sack him from off-screen. My video editing skills are no match sadly.

I thought the music in this game was excellent, however I already have a copy of the game and the soundtrack is the only item that interests me. Might wait and see if the price drops any.

lol that part had me worried the game was gonna suck. Thankfully it didn't lol. Heavy Rain is still one of my favorite PS3 games of all time, but damn that part was annoying.

I really enjoyed the game, but this hardly justifies a second release.

No link yet for retailers but it comes out on 11/8 which includes:


  • Complete, original game, Heavy Rain
  • Heavy Rain Chronicles: Episode 1 – The Taxidermist DLC
  • Heavy Rain Original Videogame Score by award-winning film and television composer, Normand Corbeil (16 tracks)
  • New front-end menu and interface with built-in Move support
  • A series of 8 “Making of” Bonus Videos
  • Three Dynamic Themes (Heavy Rain, Heavy Rain ARI Forest, Heavy Rain ARI Mars)
  • 15 additional pieces of new concept art
  • 2 bonus Trailers (Thank You Trailer, Love Trailer)



I remember that by mistake Sony put up boxart for the director's cut on the PS Blog when announcing that Heavy Rain was coming out as a greatest hits, but later pulled it down...

Awe rats! I stil have Heavy Rain in my backlog sealed. Maybe I'll just give to my brother for Christmas, so I can get this version. This and Fallout New Vegas are kicking me.

Not worth it. The current version has Move Support and the Taxidermist DLC was okay at best. It'll probably be a downloadable soundtrack as well.

Such an awesome game, but definitely not for everyone. It was such a different experience playing this and I look forward to going through it again with the Move.

They're a bit late with this re-release, but at least it's priced okay

Thank you, I feel a little better. I watched the Taxidermist DLC on youtube and was kind of glad I didn't preorder it from Gamestop. The soundtrack was the main draw for me when I saw the first post. If it isn't an actual CD then I'm going to really wait on this one.

I was really hopeful that "Director's Cut" meant they added some actual new content- mainly, as in they made more episodes for Heavy Rain Chronicles. But really, this more of a "GOTY" than a Director's Cut.

That DLC was a joke. 5 bucks for about 2 minutes of "gameplay"

Still, I did love the game and if this is 39.99 I might pick it up when it's on sale for 25ish

Originally they were going to add more content, but scraped those plans when they added Move support. Now they have moved onto their next project...
