Not to mention that Heavy Rain is not an "all new IP", they have got the same mechanics as Indigo Profecy/Farenheit, they only needed to improve the story and the graphics, the first one can be considered cheaper, but the graphics may have been quite expensive.

Anyways, i dont consider it to be that expensive, it is not like Final Fantasy XIII that needed to renew their fighting mechanics along with the graphics and the story.



I am quite shocked, I really did not expect this. But then again, it has been talked about on TV and in many weekend newspaper magazines

HEAVY RAIN is very much a new IP. The few similarities to Indigo mean nothing.

Lol, like how Dragon Age isn't a new IP either, because it has some similarities to Baldur's Gate?

This isn't very surprising. I couldn't find it anywhere in Cardiff or when I looked more locally. Hoping it'll be there tomorrow.



When someone estimates a games cost just ignore them. It's most likely wrong. Uncharted and Uncharted 2 only cost 40million... 2 high budget critically acclaimed games cost less then 1 niche titlew game? very doubtful.

With "few similarities" do you mean the whole almost-unique game play it received from Indigo Profecy ?

Heavy Rain is not like the tipical racing game, wrpg-indie game, etc, etc. It is a whole diferent story, however it got their base from from Indigo.

 

And you have read well, you were right to erase the "all" in your answer, that's what i meant with my statement ;)

The way you walk alone is completely different than Indigo. Sure there are some similarities such as QTEs, but even those are done in a way that hasn't been done before.



                                                                                                                                            

who cares? How many people do you think know about indigo? Might as well be considered a new IP even if it was a remake.
