Long-time fans may recall that Gravity Rush Remastered was initially set to be released as a PS Store digital-only title in the US. It’s only because of the reaction from the fans that Sony ended up making a deal with Amazon to release a physical edition. Unfortunately not a lot of copies were made, and as a result trying to find a used copy of the game nowadays can easily cost you around $150 or more.
Other ways to play the game included importing a much cheaper physical copy of the game from Europe or Asia, buying the $30 digital version from the PS Store or subscribing to PS Now. But now another option has become available through game rental service GameFly, who announced that they’ve added Gravity Rush Remastered to their lineup. While they often offer an option to buy and keep the used game for a specific price, this option is (unsurprisingly) not available for Gravity Rush Remastered.
So anyone planning to rent the game just to resell it is unlikely to make a profit from it. But for those who are unable to get the digital edition and really want to play the game, it’s good to see this option is now available.
What’s also certain is that the attention GameFly’s tweet about Gravity Rush Remastered got in comparison to their other tweets shows there would clearly be demand for a reprint. It’s not clear if there would be room for Amazon or a different company to release one. Would you be interested in buying a new US physical edition of the game, if one were to be released?
