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 to wait until September 22. Sony has announced that it will be releasing a free patch to update Heavy Rain for Move on that day; just boot up your game and the patch will automatically apply itself, provided you're online.

I've had some extended hand-on time with Heavy Rain Move, and my initial impressions haven't changed much -- I like it better with the motion controller. But if you're not sold on it yet, try it yourself -- there's going to be a demo hitting the PlayStation Store on September 28. It will feature two levels -- "Sleazy Place" and "Crime Scene" -- and will feature full Move support.

Heavy Rain was actually originally developed with motion control support in mind, so David Cage of the game's developer Quantic Dream told me in a conversation we had earlier this year. Perhaps this was the Heavy Rain that was always meant to be. Was there anyone holding out for Move controls before trying it out?
