A video interview with David Cage interview

David Cage video interview


On the 22nd of August, I was pleased to meet with Quantic Dream's David Cage at the SAS Radisson hotel in Cologne, Germany. Obviously we were eager to dig deep into David's upcoming PlayStation 3 blockbuster Beyond: Two Souls, but we also took a reflective look back at his experience with Heavy Rain and the evolution of his singular vision. Enjoying the relaxed atmosphere on the terrace of David's hotel, we only got to spend a short while together, but it was a welcome chance to interview a man who is not only very friendly and intelligent, but also one who never runs out of food for thought.

Enjoy.

“Since Heavy Rain’s plot was pretty much a complete copy of Memories of Murder and The Host can we expect this new game to be based on Bong Joon-Ho’s latest film?”
That’s what I would have been most curious about.

It sadly will not be compatible with PS3 games, but Sony hopes that its streaming service Gaikai sometime in the future will make it possible for you to play PS1 2 and 3 games on the PS4 through streaming. There’s no estimate on that though, but they’re working on it.

Yeah, I guess you’re right. I’ll probably end up buying a Playstation down the road. Any idea if the PS4 will be compatible with PS3 games?

Aug 30, 2013

I wouldn’t say it’s a shame these games aren’t on PC, as they would never have existed if it wasn’t for Sony (or at least with anywhere /near/ the same budget they actually have, so it wouldn’t have been the same games at all).

Instead we should be glad that Sony are even willing to spend tens of millions on games like these, that are a commercial gamble each and every time. Nothing about Heavy Rain yelled commercial success from a publishers standpoint, but it actually being a success could end up having a positive impact on the genre as a whole as more publishers might be interested in funding projects like it.

Also, I can understand that you wouldn’t want to get a PS3 based solely on these two games, but in the end would you really only want to play these two games if you bought the system? Even if you’re not into action-focused games the platform has a lot to offer in terms of puzzle-adventurey type games. Two other exclusive favorites off the top of my head is Journey and The Unfinished Swan - and another great looking game on the way is Rain.

Yes, it’s a shame the two games are only on PlayStation, but Sony’s poured many millions into them, so they aren’t sharing now.

Sony didn’t fund Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, so it didn’t have the same exclusivity.

Aug 30, 2013

Well, excuse me for not knowing that. Indigo Prophecy had a PC launch, so I wasn’t sure with neither heavy rain nor beyond got a pc port. It’s a shame though. I would love to play both games, but getting a ps3 just for those 2 games seems like a waste.

Aug 30, 2013

Not much point asking a question everyone already knows the answer to: Sony funds them, so they’re Sony exclusives.

Aug 30, 2013

So, no questions about why Quantic Dream doesn’t release a PC version of Beyond? Or why they never released a version of Heavy Rain? Well, that sucks.
