After the embargo lifted on the reviews for Heavy Rain, it appears that what was once a mysterious title with an unsure future got what it needed most. With multitudes of scores hitting 90-100 (adjusted for scale, of course), it appears that people who were putting the game on hold basically got the assurance they were seeking, thus shooting the game up to the number one spot on Amazon.com’s Best Sellers in Video Games.
Also of note, Final Fantasy XIII for PS3 is in the #3 spot, God of War III at #10 (which will most likely sky rocket when more reviews start coming in) and the 120GB PS3 in the #5 spot (as of this writing anyway). So maybe, just maybe, Heavy Rain could actually be a runaway hit with the sales and become one of the best selling underdogs in a long, long time? That’s still to be seen, of course, but congratulations to Quantic Dream on creating a different experience and still manage to take the #1 spot before it even releases.
