E3 2013: ‘Drive Club’ Versus ‘Forza Motorsport 5' – FleshEatingZipper

FleshEatingZipper writes: With two new platforms come two realistic racers to elevate the artform and show what countless polygons and infinite textures can produce, but much like the platforms that sustain them, Forza Motorsport 5 and Drive Club do quite a bit to distinguish themselves beyond their obvious passion for cars. With my hands on both this past week for an entire lap, I decided to break down the comparison between the two from the small sample Sony and Microsoft decided to give me. With that, let’s investigate! (Driveclub, E3, Forza Motorsport 5, PS4, Xbox One)

Abit too early for Versus.

FORZA5 has been in the making for along time. Looks fantastic and smooth. I want to see a new damage system, instead of replaced textures. Shame it can't do day/night/weather.

DRIVECLUB although has been at concept level for along time, the team has built the engine from ground up. Showing an unfinished track with the game being only 35% complete.

Looking foward to seeing what the finished games look like.

I have to agree that things should be never compared till they have been released.

But there both meant to come out on release right? Thats why i don't get the 35% there cutting it close :P

Also this artical a while ago saying x1 games are behind 6 months.

It don't make no seance.

We just have to wait and see

Hold on, Forza 5 doesn't do dynamic weather or time? But didn't forza horizon have this?
Elit3Nick  +   964d ago
Horizon had a day/night cycle, but not dynamic weather. Some people are still hope that night time or different times of day might be in Forza 5, since the guy said no "dynamic" time, but it might just be wishful thinking

Since its N4G Driver Club wins. It wins in everything you don't have to play it just wins.

right people.

You may have a point.

But I will disagree with you and take a bubble away.

Did you know your initials is A.I.D's

Forza 5 looks better but the demo was running on better hardware than the XB1's will have.
TFXR  +   964d ago

EZZ2013, that was the setup for a game called lococycle that ran on PC hardware. The rest of the games for XB1, mostly third party games were running on Xbox One dev kits and not high end PCs. MS first party games like Forza 5, KI3, and Ryse were already seen and confirmed to be running on actual XB1 hardware.

BTW, What is the problem with this Jonathan Blow guy, he keep spamming MS news with negativity and calling the Xbox One Xbone. What did MS ever did to him?

Here is the link to clarify the situation:
"The Xbox One games at E3 were running on Xbox One dev kits and not high end PCs. A particular developer showing off the game Lococycle did not finish porting their game to Xbox One so they ran their games on PCs at the event.
The lead for the developer below confirming they were the only ones at the event doing it and they were doing it on there own. There is another guy who was behind the scenes at E3 and said that the games were running on Xbox Ones and the crashes proved it. Another picture shows the game RYSE running on Xbox Ones on the floor and a video shows the UI run on a Xbox One showing off features on camera."

well, at least you replay to clarify this

XB1 dev kits are using Nvidia cards instead of AMD cards.
First they will develop the game with Nvidia then port to AMD, NICE!!

Get your facts straight instead of regurgitating all the crap that gets spewed on N4G.

"And yes, there were some games that were - categorically, without a shadow of a doubt - running on Xbox One hardware. It'll come as little surprise to learn that first party software was more likely to be showcased running on the new console, with Turn 10's Forza Motorsport 5 the most high profile title we saw that was visibly operating on the actual unit."

yea thats what I was actually fans never give credit when its due
Sonyslave3  +   965d ago
first website that say drive club is better then forza 5
TFXR  +   964d ago
I think many would argue Forza over PGR too, but that doesn't mean Forza was the better game to play, just technically the better game.
WickedLester  +   964d ago
Coming from a die hard Playstation fan, Forza 5 looks completely bad ass!! Evolution had better get their crap together quick if they want to make Sony's launch date!

I still say Polyphony should have developed GT6 for the launch of the PS4.

What i dont get is that he says forza looks better yet he only got to play drive club, how does that work?, from gameplay vids they look very similar cant actually tell the diffrence, sad that im gonna miss forza as ive owned every single one but i own the games i buy micro not just the licence, change the second hand game polices or no buy.
patsrule316  +   964d ago
Personally, I am going to choose between Need For Speed: Rivals and The Crew for my race game purchase (wish if I had foresight into which was more likely to get to PS Plus so I could buy the other). Both of those look more up my alley than Forza or Drive Club, but since I will get Drive Club for free with PS Plus that automatically moves it over Forza.
illtownNJONE  +   964d ago
all 1st party games were running on actual xb one console while most 3rd party was running on dev kit ....get ya facts str8
jade0732  +   964d ago
First off... I just want to apologise in advance for going off topic, but there is something very fishy about this article as it has not been posted in the Xbox one, section. This is either a mistake or intentionally done!

Please fix this.
