We saw the release of Quantic Dreams’ Heavy Rain for the PlayStation 3 way back in February. Since then with Sony’s announcement and many demo’s of it’s latest Motion technology, Move. Heavy Rain fans and motion control enthusiasts can look forward to see the title support the motion control. So you should be getting that butterfly feeling in your stomache around about now. Here are the first screens showcasing the Move integration.
So, Heavy Rain has been given a PlayStation Move makeover with a brand new control scheme that gives players the ultimate freedom of control, well when prompted to. I guess Sony’s idea with PlayStation Move integration is so that the player can feel more at the heart of the story, because your every decision and every move will make a difference.
Heavy Rain Move Edition will be available to buy pre-Xmas. But don’t worry, if you already have a copy of Heavy Rain you’ll be able to download a free update from PSN that’ll let you play the game with the new PlayStation Move controls.
Titled ‘Heavy Rain Move Edition’ the new control scheme will play the same as it did before but except from pressing buttons or shaking your controller every time, you’ll be prompted to punch the air, almost smash a lamp, hit your TV by jabbing it foward or flick it up and down once in awhile. If you have both the motion controller and the Navigation controller you can move the character onscreen and interact the exact same if you were to use the standard Duelshock 3 controller. But as expectingly from Sony, they suggest the best experience is with their new motion control.
You’ll also be able to play the game with the standard Dualshock 3 controls if you don’t have PlayStation Move. So the update won’t restrict or effect existing gamers that have it already. But how much of a difference will it make? Well we’ll find out once it’s out.
