Heavy Rain sells half million copies in first week

Heavy Rain

Backed by a tenacious spotlight in the public eye along with high review scores, Quantic Dream’s interactive drama Heavy Rain has managed to amass an impressive 500,000 units sold during its first week of release.

Over a third of the total sales were North American purchases — around 200,000. The UK, France, and Japan accrued 100,000, 50,000, and 25,000 units sold, respectively.

Heavy Rain has garnered much attention due to its usage of cinematic techniques and quicktime-event action sequences that weave a dramatic story in the same vein as film noir. It was developed by Quantic Dream, the studio responsible for the psychological thriller Indigo Prophecy.
