More than 1m copies of Heavy Rain sold

Cage reckons another 500k will be shifted.

Quantic Dreams boss David Cage says a million copies of Heavy Rain have already been shifted - and he reckons that figure will rise by half as much again before the year is out.

"We have sold more than 1 million copies of Heavy Rain worldwide," he told (as translated by VG247).

"That was a surprise to many, since estimated sales were between 200,000 to 300,000 units. We estimate that by the end of the year, we will have sold 1.5 million copies."

Cage David acknowledged that developing Heavy Rain was "a risk", what with it not fitting neatly into any genre boxes. However, that risk appears to have paid off - "We are very pleased with the reception," he stated.

Speaking of which, 9/10.
