Just dropped in price, it's been in my cart for months and this is the lowest I've seen it. Apologies if this is old news.
Also available for the same price at Gamestop.

Awesome find OP. Been waiting for a good price on the Director's Cut. 30 day trial of PS+ is icing on the cake!

I have been thinking about trolling every single amazon thread saying "tax kills the deal". Nevertheless, this is a good price for this game.

It's not tax that kills the deals for me at Amazon. It's the $4.99 shipping, "forcing" me to find something else to add to the order just so I can get the free shipping option.

Great deal for a great game.
I love showing off this game to people for the first time. Everyone is creeped out by it and just want to watch me play it for them.

So I could probably google it but what's so special about the directors cut, I have played through the original, kind of want to play through again with the move, can't I do that with out having the DC?

Nice price. I got it better from Sears. Clearanced for $6.47.


Really...the Director's Cut? Hmmm...guess I'm checking out Sears then. Besides, the Amazon shipping cost is a joke considering it costs $1.81 to send the game USPS First Class in a bubble envelope. $4.99 lol

The DC just has all of the DLC on the disc, including the free move patch.

Thanks OP, I grabbed a copy. Have yet to play the game.

I played the demo and it seemed pretty good. My biggest concern was that hand to hand combat was really awkward because it kept telling me which button to press sort of like a quick time event. Is all combat in the game like this?
I would like to know since that really killed the gameplay for me.

Yes, all of the actions in the game are quick time events. The purpose of the game is to play through the narrative in different ways to achieve multiple outcomes.

stay away from the fence at the crime scene. if u get tooo close u won't be able to move and once it auto saves, u r helpless and will have to start the game over. i learned this the hard way. and if u have kids this game might rub u the wrong way.

Thank you. I guess I will have to play the demo again and make up my mind. The story does seem very good.

I assume that it could, but would the 30-day trial for PS+ stack with another trial? I got one recently for the Ico game at Amazon and have yet to activate it. If I did both at the same time, should it stack like Live does or should I stagger the trials?

Heavy Rain has always been 18.xx at Big Lots, it's actually 17.76 today. I guess some people may not have a big lots around them.

Get Prime. $80 a year. Free Two-day shipping on everything, $3.99 One-Day shipping on everything, Free Release date Delivery on everything. $80 is a little pricey but imagine the money you save with $3.99 one-day shipping. One day shipping these days can cost $10+. So if your a regular at Amazon, definitely get Prime.

OT: I think I may get it. My PS3 is coming on Friday so I may grab this. Already picked up Uncharted 1,2,3 and Infamous 1 so this would add to the collection. Also that would be my third 30 day free PS+ trial. One in the Uncharted 3 bundle, one in the Dual Uncharted pack, and one here.

Finally it hit this price, been waiting for ages. Just barely missed out on the regular version new for $11 a long while back and haven't seen it even this low since. Hopefully it doesn't go completely bonkers like Indigo Prophecy did towards the end. I still really liked that game, but the first 2/3 is more of what I want than the last third.

By the way, does anyone know if this is better with move? I'm wondering if I should have my first playthrough be with move.

This is tempting since I have yet to play Heavy Rain, but I already have the non-Director's Cut in my backlog.

One day shipping these days can cost $10+. So if your a regular at Amazon, definitely get Prime.

When I had a ton of Amazon credit I was always ordering from them, so having Prime then would've been great. But since they won't let you use credit to buy into the Prime thing I just used up the bulk of the credits I had there and haven't shopped there since. It's a miracle if I have more than $5-6 left in actual credit and a $10 promo code from buying a game at launch last fall from them.

But again, having to pay real money out of pocket for Prime when other retailers like Gamestop and Best Buy allow you to use store credit to buy into their programs like Gamer's Club Unlocked and Power Up Rewards really sucks balls.

OT: I think I may get it. My PS3 is coming on Friday so I may grab this. Already picked up Uncharted 1,2,3 and Infamous 1 so this would add to the collection. Also that would be my third 30 day free PS+ trial. One in the Uncharted 3 bundle, one in the Dual Uncharted pack, and one here.

Wait....wait...wait....the Uncharted 1&2 Dual Pack has a one month PS+ code in it? Hmmm. I never saw one of those in mine when I picked it up from BB last year for $30 or so after a PM.

By the way, if you're either in a state where Amazon charges sales tax or don't have Prime for the free shipping and wanna get this game right away, then check out Kmart. I saw a few copies of the Director's Cut there a month or two ago when I was checking for clearance titles.

They're probably NOT joking honestly. There are people who won't buy a game simply because it's in the wrong kind of case(in this case the red greatest hits case). Apparently it fucks up the feng shui of their game collection shelves and as such they won't soil their collection with such a putrid item.

I kid you not.

I don't even know what to say. If I ever hear someone uttering this bullshit in the RL, I'm sorry in advance for slapping the shit outta you.
