"Let's say it's 22 million dollars to produce [Heavy Rain]," de Fondaumiere said. "With marketing it's maybe 30 million. With distribution, 40 million. Sony earned 100 million dollars with the game, so it's very profitable. It's the sort of margin that most publishers would strive for, for any game."
de Fondaumiere also revealed ThatGameCompany's Journey, also managed to turn a profit, although he stopped short of revealing any figures, "We should stop thinking that innovation rhymes with unprofitable," he said of Journey.
