In an interview conducted at Tokyo Game Show 2015 by PlayStation LifeStyle’s Heath Hindman, Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Worldwide Studios, talked a bit about the PlayStation Vita and Gravity Rush 2, which is only coming to the PlayStation 4.
I'm glad it's on PS4 We have Tearaway and now Gravity Rush, we just need Golden Abyss now
I agree. Hopefully it'll push sales for the PS4 and for the series itself.
Agree, AAA Japanese Home Console Games future depends on PS4 sales trajectory of in Japan. Yoshida probably wants more Japanese AAA exclusive games for PS4.
I hope Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo see this game to prove that all that PS4 power is not just "for realistic looking games that looks the same. "
I think this is the way they are trying to push the PS4 sales even more in Japan. the 1st game has garnered a lot of fans on the Vita and now that the sequel is going to be on PS4, those who only own the Vita will have to buy a PS4 for the game and the good news is, they can still enjoy it on their Vita via remote play. Sony wins!
Most Vita fanatics won't like it, but I'll rather see promising Vita IPs have a chance at glory than be forgotten. We need the sequels of Freedom Wars, Soul Sacrifice, etc now along with a remaster of the originals.
those 3 games are the best to come out of Sony Japan Studios since the days of PS2, they can be big AAA franchises on the PS4, especially Soul Sacrifice
Golden Abyss is a great Vita game, but I don't think it would translate will to PS4. It just doesn't hold up to the console versions of Uncharted.
What else they are going to say? Y'all was right we are giving up on vita. Now it's a good thing there is no reason to buy one and all the people that was worried about this that was bashed is somehow right but we're not gonna admit it and just say sony is doing great. So what's the point in people buying vita again people keep flip flopping. Now the people that state sony was abandoning vita was right but people are spinning this like now tomorrow.
Really would love to finally get my hands on Golden Abyss. Huge fan of the series but I've never been big on handhelds, It doesn't seem too likely at this point as I feel like it had the chance to work on PSTV & it never did come over, then they had the chance to release it w/ the UC collection to no avail. I've got the feeling we will never see that game on consoles, but I'd love to be proven wrong.
Should I buy the first one though. Already beat it on vita. Meh why not. They did say it would have all the dlc and some extras right?
Will include all DLC, 1080p 60fps and remastered by the best remaster team ever, Bluepoint games, they do the best Remasters not like other lazy port devs, Bluepoint the same ones working on Uncharted Collection Remasters. So this will be good.
I've never played Gravity Rush before, but this game looks fairly interesting. Is it gonna have a retail physical copy?
at least in Japan they confirmed it will
Yes it's gonna have physical release;Remaster worldwide on Feb and Sequel TBA 2016.
Honestly, I'm surprised they accomplished what they did on the Vita. I'm so glad they're unlocking its full potential on PS4.
Yeah, I had fun with the Vita title as well. Beautiful game, great mechanics. I think its a good idea to make it a PS4 exclusive so that they can devote their resources to making it the best they can without having to also develop a Vita port. Plus it may help them to push a few more PS4's in Japan.
So there should be no games for vita since its not as powerful as ps4. PS fanboy logic. I'm glad ninty don't say dumb $h!t like this their fans would have a fit. It seem its only on the PS fanbase that let everything slide. No matter what game it is its gonna be limited on vita. They are already hitting the limit of the so called super next gen consoles. Sony could say get a job another if you don't have a ps4 to play gravity rush 2 and people will still kiss their a$$
Dafuq? He didn't say anything like that.
What the crap? PS fanboy says a game should move from one PS system to another PS system? What are you smoking, dude? I love my Vita, but let's be realistic about this. The PS4 is a much more capable machine and this series deserves a more powerful platform.
I was gonna get Vita one day for Uncharted Golden Abyss but now I doubt it. I'd wait to see if it hits PS4.
The reveal trailer is a good indication of why it's only on PlayStation 4.
Because of bad Vita sales outside Japan?
Already we could see the potential in PS4 from trailer. Hoping more gameplay trailer shown in PSX.
Of course we understand. You simply left the Vita audience out to die.
10 million Vita users and only half a million sales for the game. Doesn't seem like Vita owners want the game in the first place. Sorry, I'll take a bigger and better game that's not held back by the Vita. Hell, the first game was originally supposed to be a PS3 title, so the Vita "stole" it in the first place and then it was gimped to run on it.
Platinumed this on the Vita, and will be double dipping again for the ps4 HD revision, along with the sequel. Excellent title.
Same here, fell in love with the game. Cannot wait for it to come to the PS4!
I'm 100 % happy this game is for PS4 just look at it!, the improvements are obvious not saying the GR wasn't awesome for the Vita(played a good portion of it) but this game has all to be a huge franchise!, and with PS4 high sales and powerful specs this will be certainly a reality.
I wanted to buy a Vita after the next price drop, but now, with this and Tearaway on PS4, I doubt that I will.
Vita has other great games. Depends if you want to play on the go or play something in bed. The remote play feature works well for most games. A few months ago I was at my gf's place, about 30min away from my PS4, and I was doing Destiny bounties while she got ready.
Get ds, phone, tablet, shield, anything but this dying ship we all seen it coming but this site defend it to the death u know why
Because you didn't advertise or support the Vita enough? If the reasoning is because it can have a bigger world, better graphics & possibly run better, then why have handhelds at all?
People keep blaming Sony for the Vita. If people don't want it, they don't want it. Sony didn't just roll over one day and lessen the support. They reacted to the market, a market that is dominated by Nintendo. The 3ds is the PS4 of the handheld market, and the Vita never would have reached those numbers, so as a company you have to make the decision at one point to pull back. It's not like they don't acknowledge their product.
List of things that sony did to hurt the vita 1) the advertisements (or lack of) 2) those memory prices 3) Clearly lacking effort from some of their games (resistance, no online in mod nation, and almost all their ps2 ports) and when they did put effort in the game nobody knew about them. Sony did just as much to hurt the vita as they did trying to sell the system.
...... A chance at more money?
I think he is referring to better graphics.
That...and a chance to bring a great franchise to more than the less than a million or so who purchased it on the Vita. (I think I'm being generous about that million figure, too! LOL)
Even though I played the first on Vita, I'm glad the sequel is only on PS4. Judging from trailer the world will be much much larger and more populated than the original.
Yea, I am cool with it. More of Gravity is never a bad thing.
I'm fine with it Yoshida!
Sony abandoning an entire fanbase of over 12 million people is the probably the reason why I stick with Microsoft and Xbox One. No way around it, Sony is doing its Vita fans dirty.
No more than MS did when they dropped Ryse on 360 for X1. If it makes the game better, it's good news for Gravity Rush, just like it was(ish) for Ryse.
Oh like they abandoned the original Xbox after only four years when the 360 came out. Oh did you forget?
This is the dumbest reason I ever seen. They don't support a handheld game with first-party games anymore so you jump to MS? What dumb logic.
PSVR? Gyroscoptic Kicking was essential in platinuming Gravity Rush 1 on the Vita. Maybe GR2 'needs' to be on the PS4, because of PSVR functionality?! For Vita owners who are actually upset by GR2 being on PS4, just remote play it!
Market share? Why release on a system with a limited audience, when you can release on one with a much larger audience?
I understand, because the vita is dead.
Wow Gravity Rush on PS4. So hyped for this. TGS has been so awesome.
We all understand why it's a PS4 game; it'll sell better. Still sucks they can't release any more Vita exclusives.
"Totally understand" So... they treat the Vita like the under-achieving child and show no support, and treat PS4 like the over-achieving child and give it the bonuses instead of Vita the boosts
I love the design of those environments.
probably because you can do more with a home console? And, of coarse a larger audience to share the game with? And, a better chance of financial success?
I won't, I can't, but I'll still buy this game for my PS4 despite wanting to play it on my Vita.
