249w ago - SCEA's Product Marketing Manager Jefferson Dong has announced that on April 1, 2010 the much anticipated Heavy Rain Taxidermist PS3 DLC will arrive and reaffirmed the news is no April Fool's Day joke.

To quote: Those of you who pre-ordered the highly-acclaimed interactive psychological thriller, [Register or Login to view links], 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.

Videos: Heavy Rain PS3 - Eighteen Different Endings Unveiled

400°
250w 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.

Heavy Rain PS3 Special Edition, DLC and Euro Soundtrack Delay

300°
252w 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.
