Update: Apparently not. This story originated from reader questions (three in the same weekend) asking if Gravity Rush was a launch title. I checked SCEA’s press site on Sunday night and noticed they had a "new" fact sheet for the game, which is posted in full below. Apologies for the error(?).

Original Story: Kat is falling into Sony Computer Entertainment America’s launch line up set for release on the same day as their new handheld, February 22. The news comes from a SCEA fact sheet which also summarizes the game’s story.
