It's funny you say that, because even though you shouldn't judge a game by it's cover, this makes me want the game less. Or at least for a reduced price. I'm not really excited for this. $ 60 for a QTE game? NO thanks. Now $20 bucks then where talking.
I like the cover, and figured we'd have to see Ellen Page featured prominently on it since she is the star. I don't really think that having Page's face plastered on there is there to bring in most gamers. Most of the PlayStation community has at the very least heard about Heavy Rain and are fairly knowledgeable in what to expect in Beyond: Two Souls. This is a cover (much like that Bioshock: Infinite cover that got so many people's panties in a knot) that is to bring in the causal or those who are fans of Page or Dafoe's works.
Hopefully this will add up to a few more sales, because that was it's intention.
Need help? Just ask (blank friend requests will always be ignored)
I was just thinking the same. I love the artwork on the cover and wondering what they will do for the special edition art. QD used a material to make cool rain like effect on the case of heavy rain which was I hope they have something interesting planned for this too.
Either way, I cant wait to play this!
