Interesting one this. David Cage of Heavy Rain’s Quantic Dreams has a PS3 Motion Controller announcement up his sleeve. In fact, hes going to make a public announcement about it in the next couple of weeks. It looks like Heavy Rain could be getting some kind of motion controller patch.
In an interview with Dagbladet, Cage spoke about how motion controls were initially part of the Heavy Rain puzzle.
“If you are talking about Motion Control, this is something we initially considered for Heavy Rain.”
“The very first version of the game design was based on motion control, but it was not feasible at the time. But all the controls of the final version of Heavy Rain is still based on motion.”
Obviously, Heavy Rain does something that too many PS3 games are afraid to do, that is, use SIXAXIS. But it looks like SIXAXIS soon might be joined by Sony’s as yet un-named motion controller.
“I have a lot of interest in Sony’s motion device and there is a good chance that we announce something about it in the coming weeks,” Cage remarked.
