Video: Heavy Rain PlayStation 3 TV Ad Unveiled by Sony

100°
231w 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."
