Heavy Rain is a 'gamble'

According to Sony product manager for Heavy Rain Lucy Duncan heavy rain is a ‘gamble’.

“Being Sony, I suppose we have a little more luxury to take a gamble on more original and innovative IP — and Heavy Rain definitely fits that category,” she explains. “I suppose the risk is lessened if you have faith in the team behind the game and David and Guillaume and the guys at Quantic Dreams have really impressed, not just in terms of their back catalogue — Fahrenheit — but also in terms of the tech demo’s they showed in the run up to Heavy Rain.”

The general consensus among gamers is that Heavy Rain will be considered brilliant by the hardcore PS3 crowd, and ignored by the general public.

If this is what Sony is going for then great.
