Heavy Rain dev on *that* Modern Warfare 2 scene

Guillaume de Fondaumiere has spoken out in support of Modern Warfare 2 and the scene at the centre of the recent controversy. The Quantic Dream co-CEO and Heavy Rain executive producer has blamed the media for creating needless scandal by taking the scene in question “out of context.”

Fondaumiere told MTV Multiplayer, “My take on it is very simple. I don’t see any reason why video games should be treated differently than movies, for instance. I think that we should leave game creators free of expressing their vision as they see fit. I think the guys at Infinity Ward had something very precise in mind when they did this scene.”

He continued, “The real danger for me is, when you put out such a scene out of context. I can take any movie and take a sequence and make up a story and it will look like something that’s amoral or that crosses the line. This is most of the time what happens in video games [in the media].”
