Heavy Rain Initially Had Motion Control Planned for PlayStation 3
In a recent interview with Norwegian publication http://www.dagbladet.no/2010/02/10/kultur/spill/playstation_3/heavy_rain/david_cage/10331290/, creator David Cage stated that Heavy Rain initially had Motion Control planned for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: "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," he said.
Dagbladet later helped us confirm via one of Cage's reps that he had hoped to design the game for the PlayStation Motion Controller originally, but felt the tech simply wasn't far enough along.
Cage went on to add, "I have a lot of interest in Sony's motion device and there is a good chance that we announce something about it in the coming weeks."
I've seen some footage of the 'striptease' scene; it would be seriously weird to have to jiggle your own hips to progress there...
but it would be nice to see a significant other wiggle her hips to get through the scene. it would be funny if that scene was two player via motion control so you would have to make certain motions to advance the scene along if you "approve" of her moves.
sony's motion control is something i am interested in, however i am not interested enough to buy it upon initial release.
