Move support for Heavy Rain hits September 22

PlayStation Move is officially on store shelves next Sunday, September 19, although if you're lucky you can buy one right now. Heavy Rain is on store shelves as I write this, but if you want to play it with Move, you'll have ...

Storm's Adventure with Quantic Dream

Specifically, Indigo Prophecy (a.k.a. Fahrenheit) and Heavy Rain.  Sorry, no Omikron: The Nomad Soul this time around. If that first sentence wasn't confusing, then I'm not trying hard enough. Quantic Dream is a French ...

Sony has released the first images of Heavy Rain Move Edition today and -- surprise! -- it looks a lot like Heavy Rain. The differences are obvious: instead of standard DualShock action prompts, the game displays indicators s...

Is Heavy Rain better with Move support? photo
Is Heavy Rain better with Move support?
by Nick Chester

Quantic Dream's David Cage recently revealed that plans for previously announced downloadable content for Heavy Rain had been put on hold. The reason? It seems Sony was more interested in the developer working to create a patch that would allow the title to be playable with its upcoming Move motion controller.

I've already played Heavy Rain with a DualShock 3 controller, the gameplay a series of on-screen button prompts that did their best to mimic in-game actions. Swing the analog stick down and around in a half circle to pick up a cup, for instance, or sit down by using an opposing but similar motion. The results were mixed, the game's narrative arguably more engaging than the actual gameplay.

Originally designed with a motion controller in mind, does Heavy Rain benefit from the use of Sony's Move? The question, for me, was answered when I had a chance to go hands on with a recent demo of Heavy Rain using move.
