The notorious strip tease scene from Heavy Rain, Quantum Dream’s upcoming PS3 exclusive, has been leaked online. Mentioned briefly in interviews, the scene in which Madison strips down and dances for a man in a night club was recorded and leaked online for hungry gamers to enjoy.

Quite shockingly the scene contains topless nudity of the female protagonist and suggestive dancing, so the video above is not safe for work. It should be noted that this cut scene is one of choice and therefore can only be seen if the player decides to take that route.

Quantum Dream, developers of Heavy Rain, sure are taking risks and pushing the mature theme pretty hard. Not only does the above cut scene feature breasts and sexual dancing but also light violence in the shape of a lamp to the head after some ‘get your clothes off’ gun pointing.

So here is the big question: Was there any real need for Madison to take off her bra?Well of course not, but it certainly does spice the scene up a bit. I am glad that Madison doesn’t just reveal all for no reason and is forced to remove it after the mystery man pulls out a gun. It is also good to see you have a choice to retaliate and attack the man rather than just carry on the dancing or quiver in fear.

As a woman, I can say the thought of being held at gun point and being asked to remove my clothes would probably be one of the most frightening moments in my life. Not only will this help me relate to Madison but also fear for her which might cause panic in my decisions to run away, dance or smack the sleeze bag over the head. I’d like to say I’d attack the man but until I have the game in my hands who knows? Maybe I won’t even let Madison get into that situation to begin with and that is what will hopefully make Heavy Rain unique. WhereRPG’s have been talking about decision based story changes for years, Heavy Rain is taking the whole concept to the extreme.

All in all this scene ‘leak’ can be the make or break of Heavy Rain. Quantum Dream are letting everyone know that when they say a truly mature game, they mean it. They are also showing that nudity can be done not only for kicks but for dramatic changes in the story.

If you have watched the video above, let us know what you think about the nudity being used here. Was it necessary to the scene or do you think Quantum Dream are using the mature (18+) rating too far?
