171w 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.
