Heavy Rain PC Demo

After some fits and starts, the playable demo for Heavy Rain is now actually available on the Epic Games Store, offering the chance to sample the upcoming Windows edition of Quantic Dream's 2010 action/adventure. Here's what to expect:
This free Demo version of Heavy Rain gives you access to the first act of the game.

Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as “The Origami Killer” - named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes.

  • The demo takes 45 minutes to complete.
  • The demo will feature two full chapters from the game, in which players will immerse themselves in the roles of Norman Jayden, an FBI profiler brought in to help local law enforcement find and capture the Origami Killer, and Scott Shelby, a private investigator hired by families of past victims to bring their killer to justice.
  • The demo, like the full game, features stunning graphics in 4K resolution, 60 fps and Widescreen compatibility

Damn too bad, thanks StingingVelvet and jacobvandy.

It's just insane on how much money they are losing with at least 1/3 of all non-phone games are PC based. It would bring them millions, if not 10s of millions more sales.

Maybe, maybe not...

One thing is for sure though: Sony would not have kicked the Xbox' ass to hell and back this current gen if they wouldn't have had such an awesome catalogue of exclusive games. Sony won the current gen by a landslide due to having the better hardware for a substantial amount of time (until the 'X' showed up) and because of their exclusives.

Whatever they lost in PC sales was probably more than made up in console unit and related game as well as online services sales.
It's not a binary affair anyway. Many gamers have both, a PC and a console or even several consoles. Many "PC gamers" probably just bought a console and the PS4 versions of these exclusives for lack of an alternative so that's not really a lost sale.

As for Heavy Rain in particular, I think it is one of those games that also helped Sony shift units big time last gen (PS3). Sony were originally far behind the Xbox because the PS3 was a full year late and way more expensive with "weird" hardware (Cell architecture) on top of it.
It was thanks to their exclusives like Uncharted, TLoU or Heavy Rain that they caught up with the 360 and even ended up beating it by a small surplus of sales towards the end of the generation.

Seems to be a winning system for them. If I were them I would also keep some games 100% exclusive to my platform. It definitely strengthens the Playstation brand.
