Gravity Rush delayed - Retail Radar

Amazon, GameStop listings indicate PlayStation Vita game won't ship as a launch window title for Sony's new portable.

by

Sony's action game Gravity Rush is not actually in as much of a rush as previously thought. According to listings at GameStop and Amazon, the PlayStation Vita game has been delayed to May 29.

Gravity Rush has been pushed to May, it appears.

Gravity Rush was previously expected to be released as a "launch window" title for the PS Vita, which goes on sale on February 22 in North America. As of press time, Sony had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

Directed by Silent Hill and Siren developer Keiichiro Toyama, Gravity Rush is an action adventure game that follows Kat, a woman who can manipulate the gravity field around her. A Gravity Storm has beset her city, and she is tasked with saving its inhabitants using her special powers. The game itself showcases the Vita's control scheme, which includes touch-screen options and gyrometer manipulation.

In some ways I'm slightly glad as January has proven an expensive month, February is also set to be expensive and it'll creep slightly into March. Since I was planning to import this into Europe, I can hold off my Vita purchase. Perhaps by then some more good deals will surface.

@THA-TODD-BEAST : Actually..many things have. While the Vita still looks like an pretty #### impressive piece of tech,the memory card prices,lack of psp backwards compatibility,etc. could all easily be driving factors whether to or to not purchase one.

@HollowNinja Sony has done nothing recently that would warrant you suddenly "canceling" your Vita purchase. That is if there was even a purchase to "cancel" to begin with.

I actually liked the demo. The controls felt fine to me.

I cancelled my Vita purchase anyways. It's a shame that Sony had to ruin such a promising console.

At least people will have something to play this summer since it's usually the driest gaming season.

Shouldn't the article read Gravity Rush delayed in North America". Because it's already out in Asia and it's a confirmed launch title for PAL markets (but is PSN only).

Demo was alright. The controls felt a little odd.

Wow, congrats guys on picking up this OLD news on what's a placeholder date! Resistance Burning Skies is confirmed to be released on May 29th and anyone with a room temperature IQ knows that Sony isn't going to release two "big" games they're publishing on the same day. There is no delay because there's no official release date outside of it being said it was in the launch window, which has yet to be contradicted. If it gets held back outside of March it's not because the game needs work, it's being done to make sure there's a more steady flow of "big games" to try and prevent a potential drought.

The demo was terrible. Making the developers are taking the time to polish the game?

Japanese and Asian versions (with English support) are already available, so what gives?! This is the game that I was waiting for at launch... So I guess I'll either wait till May to buy the vita or will have to import the Asian version... hmmmm.....
