Quantic Dream, creator of neo-adventure game Indigo Prophecy, have shared with us a trailer for its new adventure thriller Heavy Rain. Part trailer, part tech-demo, this movie called The Casting aired at Sony's E3 booth and stars the voice of French actress Aurelie Bancilhon - whom we hope is this hot in real life. Stealing the show is the incredible transcription of her likeness. This is a powerful testament to not only the sheer muscle of the PS3, but to the ever-increasing production values and cost of game development.
Prepare to be simultaneously amazed, freaked out (Aurelie’s pretty free with the profanity) and driven to lust - they're all just a mouse-click away by tapping the movies tab at the top of the screen. The game is currently planned for PC and "next generation consoles", which we take to mean PS3 and possibly Xbox 360 (Wii won't be able to handle these graphics). And just so you know in advance: sorry, we don't have her phone number.
