According to MTV Multiplayer, the game's producer David Cage said that the game was originally planned to use motion control.
"If you are talking about motion control, this is something we initially considered for Heavy Rain."
"The very first version of the game design was based on motion control, but it was not feasible at the time. But all the controls of the final version of Heavy Rain is still based on motion."
"I have a lot of interest in Sony's motion device and there is a good chance that we announce something about it in the coming weeks."
Heavy Rain is due to be released for the PS3 on February 26.
