When Heavy Rain was released, the first thing that came to mind was, “man, I can’t wait to see Madison Paige naked”. After a few hours in to the game, controlling Madison in the shower with a Dual Shock 3, I realized that Heavy Rain was indeed missing something. Although I had no problem with the controls, I felt like Heavy Rain needed a little more interaction to complement the game. Perhaps a blow up Madison Paige Doll or Flesh light, to simulate and stimulate the Madison and Ethan love scene? Or maybe a pair of real 3D glasses to go with Norman Jayden’s virtual office? But then it hit me, “why the heck didn’t Heavy Rain come bundled with a PlayStation Move controller?”. The game would have been that much more interactive, and sexy. And why isn’t this game on the Wii?
Playing video games with a Wii mote in the past, had some annoyances at first, but once getting used to the movements and timing, it works like a charm. There have been certain games that really get that extra excitement and interaction with a Wii mote, Such as: Resident Evil 4, Trauma Center games, and Golf games! A Heavy Rain Wii version would fit right in with this list.
With Sony recently confirming that the PlayStation Move will indeed work with Heavy Rain; which makes total sense and no surprise at all; how crazy would it be, to bring Heavy Rain to the Wii? The Wii is in most homes now a day, Heavy Rain has attracted the none hard core gamers, and since the beginning; let’s face it– Heavy Rain was made for the casual gamers, it was made to attract new comers; Heavy Rain would sell and be successful on the Wii, heck, it doesn’t even have to be the same exact story, and it would obviously be graphically downgraded, but it would still be successful for a few reasons: a wide range of gamers, great interaction, cheaper, and a good example of what the Wii mote can actually do. Heavy Rain and the Wii would complement one another quite well.
It is obvious that the PlayStation Move and Heavy Rain are meant to be, but if David Cage(Director of Heavy Rain) were to ever create a Heavy Rain for the Wii, it would work–It would work and it would sell; forget the talk about third party titles not selling on the Wii, if it is marketed like it should, the Wii can cause Heavy Rain damage.
