    It would be the first time a patch would include that much video content, they just won't do that. Also, they'd need something to add another selling point to a re-release.

    Does it include the DLC? I might consider it at some point.

    It does include DLC, full list of content:

    http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2010/...ion-is-coming/

    It will include the following bonus content on the disk:

    * The Taxidermist playable scene
    * 3 x dynamic XMB themes for your PS3
    * Full game stereo soundtrack
    * Making Of videos: There are 9 Making Of videos totaling in around 45 minutes in length. They feature a behind the scenes insight into the game’s development with interviews from the development team and the game’s cast. If you’re a Heavy Rain fan, they’re not to be missed!

    Tried the MOVE demo:

    Poisitives
    - I don't need a Nav controller, DS3 worked comfortably here (dunno how it'll do in more intense games like Socom 4 though).

    - The push motion works satisfyingly in fight scene....That's about it.

    Negatives
    Opportunity wasted! Most movements feel random. I don't know why they didn't just make you copy the movement exactly as it appears on screen. Also it's annoying you keep have to point the ball in different direction (Up, right, left, directly at the Eye) to do different things and it becomes a real hassle especially as sometimes you have to change ball direction in a short amount of time and the on screen prompts aren't always clear.

    I hope when the patch for the full game comes and I'm playing from the start and 'get into it' and get used to it slowly, it'll be better. And if not, who cares, it's a free patch.
    Sad that at the moment it seems like an opportunity wasted though.


    Also: Game might come Oct 6th but the free patch is 22nd Sept I believe.

    Good summary. A few gestures felt less intuitive or more difficult to execute (especially during the apartment fight) than just using the controller. Motion controls only stick if it feels MORE natural than using a controller. Some things didn't feel that great on HR. And some of the symbols weren't clear (particularly for me, the one where you twist it to turn the key in the car).
    Perfect example would be knocking on the door. It's set up as two distinct motions that abstract knocking on a door but really, you should just be able to shake the controller as if you were knocking on a door. Could be better. But hey, free update.

    There's a special kind of nerd though, who thinks computers will overtake mankind in thirty years, changing humanity in ways incomprehensible to us now, ignoring the third of the world without electricity. It gives spiritual significance to technology developed primarily for entertainment and warfare and gives nerds something to obsess over that isn't the crushing vacuousness of their lives.

    Pretty much, that knocking example you gave was an excellent example and if you are not using MOVE like that, don't use it at all tbh.

    And yeah, no gain, no loss but my only worry is that many hardcore people will buy this as their first MOVE game and be left highly unimpressed.

    Okay I'm taking back the bad things.
    When you start the full game from the start, you get a better 'feel' for it and understand the controls much better than in the demo. I really enjoyed it thus far.

    Although it's not 1:1 obviously, many gestures make you do accurate things that makes it feel 1:1. Like the drawing at the beginning, he rubs out the pencil lines at the speed you are shaking MOVE. Turning car keys feel awesome, brushing teeth was superb as well. And opening and closing a wardrobe door never felt more satisfying

    I'm really going to enjoy Platinum'ing this with MOVE.

    EDIT: So it is. Time to play.

    You guys summed it up well the Heavy Rain move update felt tacked on and not well executed...
    I thought this would justify another play through, but I was good after playing for about 10 mins.

    Anyone new to HR will get to experience the game either way and choice is good, but there could have been more thought put into the move controls.
    It just makes me think games are obviously much better when the control scheme is built from the ground up.

    We should see some really exciting things with the move next year and 2012...

    I figured I'd want to play HR with a controller anyways, so it's good I didn't have my hopes up for it to be good with HR.

    Yeah, it's a step sideways, except in the action scenes it's more intense and fun, but you can't halfstep if you want to make the case for the motion controls. It should feel like a step forward, not sideways.

    Shit. I've been intentionally staying away from Heavy Rain because I wanted to play it with Move, and now I find that the Move scheme's kinda shitty. Well bugger me...

    You don't eat pigs, we don't eat pigs,
    It seems it's been that way forever.

    Why not not eat pigs together?

    Does Move really add much to it, or should I just save myself the price of the controller (until Killzone 3) and play it with the DS3?

    Couple of activities I honestly felt were better with MOVE and really fun to do (even opening a wardrobe brought a smile to my face lol).
    Other than that, not much difference between two schemes.

    But it sounds like you already have intentions to get MOVE, so yeah, this is definitely a good game to get MOVE with.
