Gravity Rush Remaster is Rated for Playstation 4

gravity rush 03-20-15-2

It seems like the new Gravity Rush project is actually a Playstation 4 port of the original.

A rating for Gravity Rush Remastered has surfaced on the Korean Rating Board, for Playstation 4. As the rating implies, this is most likely simply a remastering of the game, with improved assets and performance on the Playstation 4.

Despite a hopeful teaser trailer, the platform and conditions for the new Gravity rush project is still unconfirmed. For now, we’ll keep you guys posted.

    I’m in there. This looked like a really interesting title but I wasn’t by a Vita just for it, so glad it’s coming to PS4.

    I don’t like it!

    It’s like sony “shouting abandon ship named Vita”.

    The biggest reason why Vita never sold in West was because shit like this. First they didn’t bother to make exclusives for Vita, next they started making problems with every little fucking game (Gravity Rush was supposed to be digital only for EU)… and they didn’t even do anything to bring content from Japan.

    I’m pissed at what they are doing. I WILL NOT buy another handheld from SONY, I would have to be really mad to even consider doing so… and I’m going to seriously think again about me buying PS4. Shit like this shouldn’t happen EVER. Might as well change my main system to either PC or Wii U (at least Nintendo cares)

    I am conflicted. It always feels good when more people get the chance to experiment something you love, especially since the PS4 has a bigger userbase than the Vita, but there are many factors involved here, the most important to me it’s the Vita exclusive library, and Sony already removed Tearaway from it when they decided to port it to PS4.

    I don’t have private information on Sony’s strategies, I wasn’t in the stockholder meetings, but this reeks of desperation. Sony was (probably still is) bleeding money when they released the PS4, the Vita’s low sales already hanging over them, when the PS4 sold really well they simply jumped ship and abandoned the Vita. Looks at Freedom Wars’ lack of content compared to other monster hunting games and abrupt ending that feels like they rushed it out of the door just so JAPANStudio could work on something they feel would actually be profitable and the zero marketing for Oreshika as well as porting Tearaway and you can clearly see there is no love lost between Sony and the Vita.

    I don’t know how this will work for them long term, sure the PS4 is selling really well, but the Vita owners will certainly feel burned Sony now wants the Vita to basically be a glorified PS4 controller and we might be getting a repeat of the PSP: A handheld that sold enough on Japan to get a bunch of really good niche games and some high profile cool things on it that will never get localized because the west just flat out ignored it.

    Eh, but I’m just ranting, screw that negativity! MORE GRAVITY RUSH, YAY!

    Well, thanks for completely snubbing the Vita Sony.
    Why bother buying one of their handhelds, if they’re just going to abandon it?
    I hope they at least make Gravity Rush 2 for Vita, otherwise all hope is lost.

    The Vita ain’t selling that well (if at all) here in the West. So it makes sense to port it over to the PS4 to make it sell again. The handheld market is dominated by the 3DS, smartphones and tablets.

    The games seems fun. I will look forward to it.

    Sony continues to shit on the Vita. Ugh. I think this pretty much confirms GR2 as a PS4 exclusive, unfortunately.

    But again it was SONY alone who is responsible for it not selling.

    If SONY did their job properly it would start selling like a hotcakes. But they didn’t, and shit like this only makes things worse.

    I wish Nintendo cared. They talked a lot about the wii u gamepad but they never localized Zero which use the gamepad as a camera also there are many wii u and 3ds games didn’t get localized. They aren’t alone to blame but if they want to sell their system they have to find a way to get Sega , Square , Bandai and others to localize their games.

    Id like to be positive about this, if anything they could now greenlight a crossplatform Gravity Rush 2 on both PS4 & PSVITA!

    So, GR2 not coming to my Vita then… Sad times

    Well that’s the curse of living in the west. But I fully understand that the handheld gaming console users are pissed. SONY here in the west has done a shitty job nursing the little VITA into shape. Special made memory cards that cost a bucket load and a limit amount of games would kill any platform.

    Since it’s a Japanese game it’s more likely PS4/PSV. If we ever get one.

    A remastering sounds ok, but you know what would actually be good?

    A remake.

    Gravity Rush had nice ideas but a lot of flaws or lacking areas where things could have been done better.
    If they’re just going to port the game and juice up the resolution they’re throwing away a good opportunity to make the game as good as it could have been originally.
    But hey it’s also cheaper, yay for easy money.

    Okay Now i start to wonder how they will do the controls (apart from keying the tilts to a gyroscope on the controller or something)

    …Well, honestly, I’ll probably buy it, just because I love the game. But if this, and not GR2, is what that old teaser was for, I’m going to be furious.

    Nintendo doesn’t care about you either; if they did they wouldn’t have region locked their consoles which only benefits the distributors.

    The worst part about news like these it’s that it pretty much cements that sony not only gave up on the vita but probably gave up on the handheld market as a whole.
    What a shame, the 3ds and vita are by far my favorite current consoles.
