According to Heavy Rain creator – David Cage – the best console is the PS3 and the best studios in the world are on Sony’s side. He also went on to say that Quantic Dream has no intentions of making a game for the Xbox 360… at least, not any time soon.
Cage is now a loyal fan of Sony because Sony partly funded the creation of Heavy Rain and funded the marketing of the game. “We have an exclusive relationship with Sony,” Cage told CVG. “The relationship on Heavy Rain has been fantastic. They trusted us from day one, supported us all the way through. It was really a very risky project [for them] and they never let us down. Being a part of a company with what are probably the best studios in the world is something really pleasant for us. We’re happy to continue this relationship and create content for the PlayStation brand. But they fund our projects, so we’re staying exclusive to PlayStation.”
Cage also dropped some subtle hints that his team had regular conversations with other leading studios such as Naughty Dog, Media Molecule and Guerrilla Games. “We talk to Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Guerrilla, Media Molecule – all these great studios,” he added. “We talk about technology, best practice, how we do things – we share experience and expertise. I think that’s of real value for everybody.”
Rumour has it that Cage is planning on creating an emotionally thrilling war game… even though – as I’ve more than often said before – we have a lot of that in today’s market, it’ll surely be exciting to see what Cage and his team will come up with.
