Gravity Rush 2 fans are in for some bad news, as Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia has announced that the game’s online services will be shutting down early next year
"Sigh" I really like this game.But I can still playing this game offline. Sony Japan Studio do made some really good games and have unique art style, but the sale is never enough.
Hmm...does this even have a large userbase online?
smh... no, and that's not the point. the online mode is dynamically fitted into the world and you can review people's pictures to get dusty tokens. nothing that will punish the future owners of this great game!
I didn't mean it as a slight on it. GR2 looks good and I intend to play it.
@bouzebbal: I'd imagine that is the point. Otherwise the servers wouldn't be shutting down if the game had a larger userbase online.
Sony couldn't support GR2 with its simplistic online features for a few years? Then why people pay to play online? What's the point of PS+? Did you know that people still play old MP games on the 360? Games like Gears of War 1, CoD2, Rainbow Six Vegas 1... Enjoy being a loyalist bro!
What! Boooh! Really Sony, dick move. Treasure hunts are cool!
I'm guessing it doesn't have that many concurrent players anymore. I'm glad I got to experience the online portion of this game. Treasure hunts, sharing and rating photos were really fun. I will replay this game before the servers go off
Is the platinum tied to the servers? I haven't gotten to GR2 yet, but might start it next if I have to participate in the online stuff to get a few trophies.
I don't remember any trophy being tied to the servers honestly. You should be good
Sounds good. Will double check though once I muddle my way through all these KH trophies I'm working on.:)
Yeah, I hope they try to make a flop sequel, so they can know the real price of such a disrespectful decision.
At least Sony respect the wishes of it fan base now where is conker, cameo, Alan wake, killer instinct, and soon to be sea of ..,....never mind go back to troll pre-school you fail the entrance exam palitera
I own a X1 and a PS4. It's over 6 months since I turned my X1 on and I prefer the Sony console by far. Just so you know how ridiculous you are. BTW, what does MS has to do with this? Sheep.
Damn... Great game too
Remind me again why we are paying PS+ again? Which has also increased in price. It sure as hell wasn't for games to shut down their online server a year later.
You answered your own question.
I think they should allow the online portion to atleast go on until the end of the cycle
This about as dumb as me asking why idiots pay for live when first party games keep getting cancelled
I think it's so they can play online on their Xboxes. Not sure why you have to ask that. If you play on console and want to play multiplayer you pretty much have to.
Are there any trophies tied to the online?
Alright, thanks! Still need to pick this game up but there are so many good games coming out...
Online is nothing really but just bonus hide and seek using pictures type thing. 8 have and amassed 10k dusty tokens in may or so and honestly, it definitely added a few hours for me since I needed like 5k to get all costumes (2 are from getting a certain amount of dusty tokens). But if they just simply update it to where you just need gr1 to get them or auto unlock, then it makes no difference. Basically the online is almost non existent. Past seeing pictures ppl post and pictures for hide and seek lol
Wait the game only released this year right? I don't think it sold all that good (at least outside of Japan) but switching the servers off all ready? I don't own the game yer its one I want to play I just don't want to pay more than £20 for it. Is the online side of things essential?
No it's just minor stuff like leaderboard tracking and treasure hunts, still sucks tho
did this title even sell some units? according to some responses here: actually, yes. despite there was a gravity rush 1. wow.
I remember reading that this title didn't do so well in sales when it released. Shame they couldn't keep the online going but what's the point if hardly anyone is online to use it.
I never really did any treasure hunts to be honest.
Only 1 Year lifespan for the game is really harsh. Are any trophys effected by this? If not, its still okay to play it offline.
What the hell? The game is going to get rid of it's online services only 1 year after launch? What exactly are we paying for with PS+?
You are certainly not paying Ps+ for this since you don't need it to experience the online functionality. Again, Online functions not gameplay
Seriously shut your mouth. Your question can't be serious.
Why can it not be serious? I thought we were paying to improve the quality of Playstation's online services? I don't give a shit if PS+ isn't required for this, we're subsidizing Sony's online network with little to show for it.
That's seriously disappointing.... So two things: 1. I guess that means the online hunts and plain challenges will be gone. 2. My hopes for a sequel are dashed.
Hope there is no online crap trophys. As just bought the game but have not had the chance to play it yet. If there are online trophys and they won't be obtainable then game is getting sold before even trying.
No online trophies, chill
It's not that kind of online. It's leaderboards for challenges, rating other peoples' screenshots, and user uploaded treasure hunts. Sucks it's going. Use it or lose it I guess. Blows my mind seeing this game struggle, while games like the Order and Knack sold a couple million each.
Seriously. It's one of my favorite games this generation (second, actually). It's hard for me to love a lot of the modern stuff but Gravity Rush 2 was such a refreshing title. I encourage Sony to offer it on PlayStation Plus. It'll reinvigorate the community and likely get people to fall in love with it enough to warrant a sequel. I think Sony realizes that there's love for the series since Kat is in the VR music festival. Just need more people to give the game a go. I'd love to get at least a Gravity Rush 3 before the series takes a break.
Price cut the thing even. Bundle it. Do something. I never see it on sale. It's a good game. Don't wanna see it get Motorstormed
Still need to pick this up...
I had no idea it had an offline mode, and I consider it a single player game.
This is really depressing. I hope they continue the series. Kat is one of my favorite characters, she's beautiful and I don't just mean here looks which are amazing and not drawn with ridiculous huge boobs or anything but her personality. She is nice and always helps people and is humble. So few characters these days have those characteristics it's always about being gritty and hardcore and selfish. But I guess with the rise of hate and selfishness in the world these days I'm not surprised most characters reflect that, Kat was a breath of fresh air, having a character that was genuinely nice and innocent. I'm not going to lie when I play these games the beauty and artistry puts a tear in my eye, playing this game really gave me a lot of pleasure. I just want to add I'm glad people noticed the artistry in Persona 5, it's a real shame this game didn't get the same reception because it is equally deserving in every way.
I agree and share the same passion for the game. I hope Sony continues to support the franchise and really push for there to be more marketing. I wish GR3 is in the works.
The treasure hunts were fun. Man, I wanted to love this game. It looked to improve on an already great game. Such a letdown. Still, the treasure hunts were fun. Silly they are shutting this down.
