175w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Ross Alexander has shared the first PS3 screenshots from the upcoming Heavy Rain Move Edition for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system today.
To quote: Today we have a world exclusive for you - the very first screenshots for the game which showcase the new PlayStation Move control system.
Heavy Rain has been given a PlayStation Move makeover with a brand new control scheme that gives players the ultimate freedom of control. With PlayStation Move you can really put yourself at the heart of the story more than ever before, and your every decision and every move will make a difference.
Heavy Rain Move Edition will be available to buy pre-Xmas. If you already have a copy of Heavy Rain you'll be able to download a free update from PSN that'll let you play the game with the new PlayStation Move controls.
Heavy Rain Move Edition is played using a PlayStation Move motion controller to complete actions and a PlayStation Move navigation controller or DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller to move your character.
But if you want the full experience we'd strongly recommend you play with a PlayStation Move motion controller and a navigation controller.
You'll also be able to play the game with the standard DUALSHOCK 3 controls...

To quote: Those of you who pre-ordered the highly-acclaimed interactive psychological thriller, Heavy Rain, have already gotten a chance to play Chapter 1 of the Heavy Rain Chronicles, The Taxidermist (props to those who pre-ordered).
But, for those who didn't pre-order, we are officially announcing that The Taxidermist chapter will be available to download for $4.99 through the PlayStation Store on Thursday, April 1. Mark it down! Please note, however, you must have a copy of Heavy Rain to play the chapters of the Heavy Rain Chronicles.
Another great offering from the Quantic Dream crew, The Taxidermist chapter provides an additional backstory to Heavy Rain and features one of the main characters from Heavy Rain, journalist Madison Paige, on one of her early leads from her investigation into the Origami Killer.
In a similar manner to the unique, cinematic gameplay style of Heavy Rain, you will play Madison, and be presented with a number of tense situations and decisions, as she digs further...
196w ago - Today TokyoDomeSF4 has shared eighteen different Heavy Rain PS3 endings in a series of videos via YouTube.
The outcome of the PlayStation 3 game's final scenes are dependent on choices and actions the player has made throughout the game; Any of the four characters may die at some point, or fail in a way that they do not reach Shaun's location.
In the "best" possible ending, Ethan figures out the address and manages to find and rescue Shaun, while both Madison and Jayden have separately identified Shelby's crimes and Shaun's location.
Shelby appears, congratulating him on his success but prepared to kill them both. Jayden arrives and chases Shelby, eventually killing him, while Madison arrives to clear Ethan's name as the Origami Killer.
The details of the epilogue will vary depending on both minor and major events that occur through the game. Generally, a news report giving the status of the Origami Killer case is shown, and the surviving characters' lives beyond the game's events are shown.
Other endings vary, and individual fates are crossed referenced accordingly.
