Sony appears to have dropped the price of Gravity Rush 2 on the US, EU and UK PlayStation Stores by no less than 33%. This brings its price down to $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99. More importantly, there’s no indication that this is a special sale, and as such we can assume this is a permanent price drop. While this isn’t the first game to receive a permanent price drop, most of the big titles that were released at around the same time as Gravity Rush 2 are still being sold at their full price. In the EU for example, this means Gravity Rush 2 is now available at almost half the price of NieR: Automata and Tales of Berseria (although the latter is currently on sale). Whether or not the price drop will also be valid for the physical version of the game across major retailers remains to be seen, as so far only Best Buy appears to have matched the price.
Earlier on, another SIE Studio Japan game, The Last Guardian, also received a similar price drop soon after its launch. This boosted the game’s sales, something I hope will be the case for Gravity Rush 2 as well. While many have noted that games from Japanese developers have made somewhat of a comeback in the West recently, with notably a strong performance from NieR: Automata, Gravity Rush 2 seems to have been largely overlooked.
It’s worth noting that Gravity Rush 2 easily offers around 60 hours of content if you intend to complete the main story, all the side-quests and challenges included in the game. Additionally, all of game’s DLC so far has been made available for free. This includes a separate story arc for Raven, good for an additional 4 to 5 hours. And for those who really want a challenge, the Delvool Trench Mines offer 50 layers of challenges for the player to complete.
Thanks, Wario64, for pointing out the price drop.
