Heavy Rain Was Planned To Have Motion Controls

The mastermind behind Quantic Dream‘s murder mystery thriller Heavy Rain, David Cage, has said that he originally wanted motion controls for the exclusive.

Speaking recently in a Q&A with Norwegian publication Dagbladet, Cage has stated that Heavy Rain was meant to be based on motion control and also teases something new.

If you are talking about Motion Control, this is something we initially considered for Heavy Rain. The very first version of the game design was based on motion control, but it was not feasible at the time.

I have a lot of interest in Sony’s motion device and there is a good chance that we will announce something about it in the coming weeks.

Sony’s motion control is slated for a release this Autumn. Heavy Rain will be released on February 23 in the US, and February 26 in the UK.
