Once again WE are dealing with a HMV exclusive limited edition video game. The Heavy Rain Special Edition was only available in a well known UK store; this version comes with extra in-game contents in a beautiful paper box.
The front of the thin paper sleeve is covered with embossed raindrops which looks really nice and perfectly fits to the game’s theme. The inner foldable disc container decorated with the game’s characters makes a really cheap impression; it’s made of thin paper and holds the user’s manual and a PSN voucher to unlock downloadable contents like the official soundtrack, dynamic XMB theme and a playable bonus chapter. The user’s manual is a unique piece, after unfolding the oversized rough paper you can see the control instructions and game basics as handwritten notes.
As a final extra there is a small slip of glossy paper to make the game’s famous origami figure during the installation process.
