Heavy Rain
Umbrellas At The Ready: Heavy Rain Approaching

It's all Heavy Rain this week as following hot on the heels of the news that the Collector's Edition will be an HMV exclusive in the UK, we finally get word of the officially confirmed release date.

Quantic Dream's noir thriller will go on sale first in the US on February 23rd with PAL regions following in the same week. That's February 26th in the UK and Ireland and February 24th for the rest of Europe.

The news was confirmed on the EU PlayStation blog, earlier today.

And if that still seems like a long way off, we've got some fresh screens for you to hopefully ease the pain a little.

Looks fantastic. I've been waiting for this game for over a year. They just kept pushing that release date back. I'm so ready.

I've been looking forward to this game since the E3 2006 tech demo. Hope it lives up to the hype.

I cannot wait for this game (As you can probably tell by my forum avatar and signature!) - I've been hooked since I saw the "Casting" video, back before I even got my PS3.
Day one purchase for me - can't wait!

@9...It will have trophies. The developers have said that. As for the list itself, hopefully we'll have it soon.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good arty piece of media, but this just looks a little boring

Turn anticlockwise to stir coffee

L1 Press repeatedly to nod head if you agree

I am of course being sarcastic but until I see this being played, I'm not convinced

@#13 - It's something new though, and I love trying something new. So long as it has a strong story and good pace, I'm good to go.

Pre-orders from major US retailers will also come with "Heavy Rain: Chronicle One - The Taxidermist", the first of the stand-alone episodes, free of charge.

It looks promising. The one thing I'm worried of is if it ends up turning out like Indigo Prophecy did. AKA badly.

I cant wait for this game either. As cool and innovative as it is and as badly as i want to play it, Im going to wait for day one buyer reviews and demo to be absolutely sure its worth buying.

have been waithing for this game since it was on the E3 about 2 year back... (didn't have a playstation 3 back then, but I just love the idea of a psycological thriller as a game!)

stil not completely conviced, I am a bit worried about the gameplay (the game of CSI (closest to a thriller) had a verry crappy gameplay) but the Demo will clear that! (hopefully)

i believe the developers said they're not gonna go all supernatural with the story, so i think we got nothin to worry about.

i really hope ppl give this game a chance before writing it off (so far alot of ppl seem to be very open to it, which is good). this is where a game can shine unlike any other medium; i expect this game to immerse me in a way no movie or book could come close...

I can't wait for this game to come out. I want this more than Bioshock 2 and Mass Effect 2. This game is probally the most beatiful game i've ever seen.

I'm really looking forward to it as well, I hope it's gonna be one of the best games of the year.

I hope the game is long though. Like a book, so that you really have to take your time with it.
