Nope, Heavy Rain "Not Porn"

French developer Quantic Dream, the studio behind the upcoming Heavy Rain, has spoken at length about sexes in game and the difference between sexual relations and porn. Sexy!

"There are a couple [of sex scenes] , but it's definitely not porn," Quantic Dream boss David Cage told PSM3. "We don't intend to push the boundaries and be ultra-realistic in every detail. It's about real characters having emotions and doing what adults do when they fall in love.

The studio is making an adult game. Adult movies have nudity. They also have sex. Not all of them, though. Unfortunately.

Sex and nudity are a part of life. And if the studio is going to depict the real world for adults, then maybe its characters will take off their clothes. Maybe they'll fall in love. Maybe they'll have sex. And that's OK.

The game has already sparked a dialogue about the key difference between sex and sexy.

    I don't understand the hype for this game, doesn't anyone remember how terrible Fahrenheit was??

      Some people liked Fahrenheit.

      As for "oooh! sex!" the reason is simple. The old media still pretend that video games are for kids, so they can paint video games as evil.

      They're just bitter that they are on the way out by nature of technological decentralization.

    It will sell better if it IS porn

    I don’t think Quantic Dream need to defend themselves at all, I’ve seen some of the naughty bits from this game and its nothing you won’t see in a M rated movie. Whoever suggests that this game is “porn” is a moron, why is it that any nudity or sex gets totally overblown when it comes to video games?. Even the slightest notion that sex has or will take place and you’re probably likely to make the news.

    Im gonna definately give it a go I mean I didnt mind Farenheit but it was pretty basic compared to this.

    Shouldn't have shown the sex, what with the uncanny valley and all, this is gonna be even more awkard.

    Blue, furry Avatar almost-cat-sex works because your brain has trouble processing what it's seeing and the higher quality CG
