No Gravity Rush At Retail For Europe

Sony RPG PS Vita News Action

For those who want a physical copy of Gravity Rush and live in Europe, the only way that will happen will be importation as it has been confirmed that Europe and PAL territories will see a download only version of Gravity Rush being released, instead of both a retail copy and download copy as seen in Japan and North America. This was confirmed by a comment made by the Playstation Vita European Product Manager Adam Grant in the comments section of this blog post on the Euro PS Blog. It can be found on the first page of comments.

For those who wants the comment right now, here it is below:

Question: Is Gravity Rush going to be a retail title when it releases or just PSN only?
Answer: Gravity Rush will be launching on PSN only.

Considered one of the most anticipated Playstation Vita titles within the launch period, this is in fact a blow for potential consumers. Despite figures in the digital market in Japan “exceeding expectations” according to Sony, the Western market has not warmed up just yet to buying games on the digital market. Look at the PSP Go, a great idea poorly executed. Plus, if there were fears that Gravity Rush would not sell well, then sometimes playing the game with some form of risk can bring great rewards.

The game should release at retail in North America when it is launched sometime in 2012.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    That is disappointing. Gravity Rush will probably be one of the larger download files too so it’d quickly fill up any of those smaller memory cards that they are selling. Seems like a way to push people to buy the more expensive larger ones.
