UPDATE: Heavy Rain Features A Male Shower Scene

Posted in Official PlayStation Magazine, PlayStation 3 with tags , on November 23, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Yeah, you read that right. A week ago, we reported a cryptic tweet from Official Playstation Magazine suggesting that there was also a shower scene in Heavy Rain;

“Heavy Rain preview code GET! Whole team gathered around… to watch @bodbod take a shower. :-/ Looks stunning so far. (Not @bodbod)”

Obviously, we assumed it was Madison, who shows all in a strip scene. However, another tweet from OPM, in response to when the public will be able to see the scene, reveals that it’s a male character having a clean;

“Early next year. (It’s a dude in the shower though.)”

The game is out in 2010 for the PS3.

Quantic Dream: Heavy Rain Demo on the Way

Heavy Rain 2

Speaking to G4, Quantic Dream’s David Cage has revealed that there will be a demo on the way for Heavy Rain before it’s release next year.

He however said that they were looking at which point in the game to pick as the demo.

“We are currently working on a demo, which is a real challenge. Finding one scene that can convey what we are trying to achieve with Heavy Rain is something really difficult,” said Cage.

“If we show an action scene, some players will think that this is what Heavy Rain is all about, and it is the same thing if we show an exploration scene. The problem is that each scene of the game offers contextual game play, which is something very difficult to explain and convey in a single demo.”

Exciting. The game is out next year for the PS3.
