Gaming bloggers and forum dwellers alike have made a big fuss over the Heavy Rain's U.S. packaging -- so much so that publisher Sony decided to offer the game's classier European boxart as a pre-formatted PDF for upset fans to print out -- but the Japanese edition of the PS3 exclusive's cover is the strangest of the three.

In my opinion, Sony and Quantic Dream should've scrapped all three designs and used the neat origami-themed GamesTM cover instead. It would annoy some gamers and would cost a lot more than a traditional box, but surely that idea is a lot more interesting than some guy's face sticking out of a puddle? Anyway, I've included the North American and European Heavy Rain covers after the break for you to compare.
