Quantic Dream buys cutting edge motion-capturing tech

Quantic Dream, the people behind that weird PS3 tech demo slash pseudo-game, Heavy Rain, have gone ahead and bought the latest in motion capturing technology for their fourth month in, well, capturing motion. That means there's a lot of motion capturing going on and if Quantic Dream has invested in the latest technology, then we might see something beyond anything we've experienced thus far.

The company claims their goal is "interactive cinema in which realistic, believable characters play a central role." As if that weren't enough to get you excited to see more of their mysterious PS3 project announced back in July, you'll see other companies using this new technology too as Quantic Dream is renting out their equipment to other developers. Until we hear more, or preferably see more, that's all we know.
