Mandatory installs aren't unexpected when it comes to PlayStation 3 titles, but developers are fast becoming creative with how they hope to keep you occupied while you wait.
According to the instructions, the game box will ship with a square piece of paper for this very purpose. While I didn't get that, it wasn't going to stop me from following along at home. Later this week, I'll have a full preview and hands-on with Heavy Rain, but in the meantime, hit the jump and get ready to do some origami.
Before we start, you'll want to find yourself a piece of square paper. If it's too big, your final product will be too unwieldy; if it's too small, you'll have trouble bending corners. Choose your square size wisely.
Fold the square over diagonally as shown to make a nice, visible crease.
Fold the square the other way, as shown, making a second visible crease.
Turn the square 45 degrees as shown, and fold three points towards the center.
Fold the upper point backwards.
Fold the four remaining points towards the center.
Now turn the paper over, and fold the lower point towards the top. It should look like a little triangle.
Now reach up, and pull the inner points down.
Step 8 is pretty much making sure that what you have looks like this. Well does it? Good, move on to step 9.
Folder the upper point down.
Step 10, much like Step 8, is just to assure what you have looks like this. Does it? Neat. You're doing good, and I'm very proud of you. Almost there, killer.
Fold the right half of the paper over to the left, and while doing so, pull out the upper square to create a "nose."
See? A nose.
Now, pull the "tail" out, as shown.
You're done! Check back later this week for our preview of Heavy Rain.Photo Gallery: (13 images)
