Cage: Heavy Rain gameplay target is 8-12 hours

200°
310w ago - Speaking to VG247 at Games Convention, Quantic Dream boss David Cage said a single walk through of top drawer PS3 thriller Heavy Rain is likely to take no more than 12 hours.

"We're still in the middle of production, so I can't really tell you the exact time of the game, but we're targeting a game between eight and 12 hours in gameplay for one walk through," he said.

Seen for the first time in Germany last month, the game showed what appeared to be unparalleled plot-branching, a fact, Cage said, likely to keep the hardcore coming back for much more.

"It's impossible in one walk through to see everything there is to see," he added.

"And that's going to be OK. For most gamers, they're going to play it once, and really enjoy it and have a great journey, but some hardcore gamers will want to come back and see everything, and all possible options."

Heavy Rain has been branded PS3's "most important title for next year" by SCEE boss David Reeves.
 

The Getaway for PS2 Analyizes 'Satellite Navigation' in our Brains

50°
310w ago - Researchers believe that our brains contain navigation systems much like satellite navigation with grids, compasses and in-built maps.

Recently, two researchers used the PS2 game 'The Getaway' to analyse how taxi drivers use their brain areas to navigate.

To quote: In a follow-up study, Dr Spiers and Professor Maguire used the PlayStation 2 video game "The Getaway" to examine how taxi drivers use their hippocampus and other brain areas when they navigate. Taxi drivers used the virtual reality simulation to navigate the streets of London whilst lying in an fMRI brain scanner.

The researchers found that the hippocampus is most active when the drivers first think about their route and plan ahead. By contrast, activity in a diverse network of other brain areas increases as they encounter road blocks, spot expected landmarks, look at the view and worry about the thoughts of their customers and other drivers.
