197w ago - Sony's UK Product Manager Lucy Duncan has shared several new Heavy Rain PS3 advert videos today on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: We have been running several different ads for the Heavy Rain TV campaign in the UK and just in case you have missed any of them, here they are!
This is a pre-launch we ran 'Top & Tail' ads to show the different choices you can make within the game and the consequences that this can have in the 'Hassans Shop' scene. 3 different endings were made and played out on TV.
Our 60″ ad first aired during last weeks Inter Milan and Chelsea Champions League game and ran throughout the launch weekend.
A shorter 30″ version of this ad will be running until the 14th of March:
You should also check out the interactive Heavy Rain game trailers on the Heavy Rain YouTube channel to experience the game, make decisions for yourself and watch...
198w ago - European Product Manager Alex Pavey has unveiled a Heavy Rain PS3 Special Edition today, alongside DLC news and also confirmation that (due to a technical issue) the European soundtrack will be delayed.
To quote: Launch week is here, and some of you will already have your hands on the fantastic Heavy Rain!
I know that many of you have ordered the Special Edition, which contains a voucher code to download three pieces of additional content: Chronicles episode 1, the additional playable scene; a Dynamic XMB Theme; and the Official Heavy Rain Soundtrack.
I'm sorry to say that there has been a last-minute technical delay with the Official Soundtrack, meaning that if you redeem your voucher code before 4th March, you will be able to download Chronicle 1 and the Dynamic Theme, but not the Official Soundtrack.
If you redeem your Special Edition voucher after 4th March, you will receive all three pieces of content as normal - and if you can stand to wait a week to start downloading additional content, that will be the easiest approach.
If you have already redeemed your voucher code and have not received the Official Soundtrack, please contact your local customer service teams who will be able to help you. Apologies for the inconvenience, everyone.

198w ago - Today Sony European Product Manager Alex Pavey has unveiled the official Heavy Rain PS3 TV ad on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: Hi everyone - Heavy Rain will start hitting shelves in parts of Europe tomorrow, so I thought I'd give you a peek at the TV ad, versions of which will be running in many countries over the next few weeks.
From Director David Cage, to quote: "Heavy Rain is about normal people who have landed in extraordinary situations. I wanted a much more personal story.
The first thing that came to my mind, as a father of two little boys, was that the main theme should simply be a father's love for his son. This is not a game about saving the princess or the world. Its purely about a father's love.
The main story will revolve around four different characters, and we're putting the spotlight on their perceptions.
The question 'what is good and what is evil' is the key here, that will be just a matter of viewpoint... I believe heavily in moral choices, I'm going to use them A LOT.
They're not about being good or bad, but about finding the right balance."
