Previously on Four Days: The Heavy Rain PS3 Online Experience

236w ago - European Product Manager Alex Pavey has shared a recap today on Four Days: The Heavy Rain PS3 Online Experience, as follows:

Last week saw the second chapter of Four Days: The Heavy Rain Online Experience unfold.

The investigation took a dark turn, as participants took part in a criminal investigation - handling an emergency call, investigating crime scene evidence, questioning a well-meaning but unreliable witness, and ultimately submitting data to the Bureau for further analysis.

At the end of the week, all those who submitted the correct evidence pack from the crime scene were given an exclusive voucher code to download the Heavy Rain playable demo from the PlayStation Store. The demo will not be made generally available until this Thursday, 11th February - so there's still time for you to get involved and get hold of the demo early.

Head over to [Register or Login to view links] to register, and then take a look at the active community over on the [Register or Login to view links] if you need any hints or help.

The final stage of the investigation will take place this week - you've been seconded to work with the Bureau, helping them assess...

237w ago - While it may have been missing from this week's PSN Store update, the Heavy Rain PS3 Demo (nearly 2GB in size) is actually available there but hidden.

Here's how to get your code to give it a test run, from dreamfall via Kotaku:

Upcoming psychological thriller Heavy Rain won't be out until February 23. The game's demo is not scheduled until February 11. Today is February 5. So what, let's get the demo.

Sony has launched a Web site called "[Register or Login to view links]", an alternate reality game of sort. This ARG asks players to submit four pieces of evidence.

For those who want to play the ARG, stop now.

The four pieces of evidence are:

• Short cigarette (117b)
• Origami bird
• Coffee shop C (it says "diner")
• 117h (tyre tracks).

Be care about which coffee shop you pick as there are several, and you must submit the correct one to get the code. Likewise, the writing on the "tyre tracks" is difficult to read.

For those who do not want to play the ARG and would like to submit the correct evidence (at least, correct at time of publishing) and get the demo right now,...

237w ago - As a follow-up to last week's article, today European Product Manager Alex Pavey has shared a glimpse into the Heavy Rain Online Experience, previously on Four Days, Part 1.

To quote: Four Days: The Heavy Rain Online Experience kicked off last week, and it's been great to watch thousands of you following the early stages of the investigation.

A trail of clues led participants across the net, and they witnessed the disturbed and suspicious ranting of someone who may prove to be a potential suspect.

Some participants also discovered that their credentials gave them exclusive access to a parallel investigation taking place in PlayStation Home...

This week is where the real work begins. A crime has taken place, and you will be tasked with supporting the investigation. Analyse the crime-scene - question an eyewitness - assess the evidence. The consequences will be great, but the rewards may be even greater.

Heavy Rain Includes Mandatory 4.2GB PS3 HDD Installation

550°
238w ago - A few weeks ago the Heavy Rain front boxart was released, and today [Register or Login to view links] has made available the back boxart which reveals a mandatory 4.2GB PS3 HDD installation.

For those curious, Sony has also confirmed that they will offer a Heavy Rain alternate PS3 box art print out on launch.

To quote from JustPushStart.com (linked above): "You might want to save an extra 4.2GB of space in your hard drive as the game will REQUIRE (as the game boxart suggests) you to install the game's data in order to proceed.

It sure is a lot of space but as you are waiting for the data to install in your hard drive, there will be a guide showing you on how to make a Swan Origami (as featured in the game) while you're waiting for the game to install."

Heavy Rain pre-orders are now available for $59.99 and the PlayStation 3 title is scheduled to ship on February 23, 2010.
