So really, the only benefit to the Director's Cut is it includes the DLC. However, the Greatest Hits version of Heavy Rain was available for $15 around Thanksgiving, and will likely be on sale for that price in the future, so you'd save money buying the regular version on sale and the DLC, if you should chose to get it, separate.
That said, Heavy Rain is amazing. It is QTE heavy, but it's not an action game. It's an interactive story, a modern adventure game, and is a haunting and emotional experience. The music is incredible.

The only time I've seen this game being sold in the teens was by another seller. They also wanted $5 shipping on top of that. It ended up being almost as much as the Amazon price. That was for the regular version too. If you look up this web site, camelcamelcamel (dot) com, it shows you the price history of any Amazon item.

My friend said you need the PlayStation Move motion controller and PlayStation Eye camera to play this director's cut version. Is this true?

No, it's not true. The logo on the font of the box says COMPATIBLE, not REQUIRED.
Here's COMPATIBLE, meaning you can use Move or Dualshock:
Here's REQUIRED, meaning you have to use Move:

Thanks for clarifying the compatible vs required thing. I sort of thought you didn't need the Move to play the game. But I also saw someone on eBay saying they were selling the game because it wouldn't work without move: maybe it was just a ploy.

How do you play the Taxidermist DLC without having to pay for it? I can't seem to find a code to play the DLC without it telling me to buy it from the PSN store. Not sure if my director's cut came with a code or not.

I was wondering this to as I have no code that I can tell, unless I was suppose to fold the paper and get a code when I was done. Can someone explain to me how to get the DLC for the director's cut since it was suppose to come with it? I don't want to pay for something I should already have.

No DLC codes. DLC content is already on the disc.

I have not played this version, but my guess is if it's not accessed in the game somehow, then it's possible it might show up in the PS menu system as another disc in the game section. I've had a couple games do that in the past for me. Like two games on one disc sort of thing. Not sure if that helps or is the answer but thought I would throw it out there.
