First Heavy Rain Trailer and Screenshots Emerge

Two years after its debut as a tech demo, publisher Sony today provided the first trailer and in-game screenshots of Quantic Dream's "adult thriller" Heavy Rain, a PlayStation 3 exclusive due out in late 2009.

Similar to Quantic Dream's adventure title Indigo Prophecy, Sony explained that "the dynamic narrative [of Heavy Rain] unfolds through the players actions--not cut scenes--and every action has a consequence."

    I wish quicktime events would die a horrible death

      My thoughts exactly.

      My heart sank when I saw them.

        This game is made by the same people that did Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy so the presence of quick-time events shouldn't really be a surprise.

      that's all that the trailer was too. I think the whole game is like that :)

      if it's like Indigo Prophecy it'll be a mixture of both

      i just finished that game on Xbox and it was pretty good, got weird at the end though

      In your opinion. I think they're a fine way of making cutscenes more interesting.
