"During the 25 minute long presentation, Evolution’s Studios Director, Col Rodgers was all praise for the PlayStation 4. He revealed that due to the graphical prowess of the PS4, they have been able to do things that were not possible before."
Interesting. I wonder if they take online information on the whether in you region and apply it to the game?
I am buying drive club day one, it looks very interesting
you can get it on PS+ for free, and i think it will be possible to upgrade to the full Drive Club at a cheaper price than retail price. I'll do it that way for my sake! The weather thing is amazing, that would be crazy! definitely a game changer for me
I find it weird that they have a $60 full retail version of Driveclub, and a cut down PS+ version at the same time. And Driveclub was designed with multiplayer in mind, so you'll need PS+ to play online lol. Glad we got a launch title for free with PS Plus. It'll make the online experience better with more players. If games good, I'll buy the extra contents. So if you get a PS4 you'll have plenty of Free 2 Play games and with PS Plus you're getting even more games free. Got to love that.
Yeah it's actually the game I'm more exited for on the PS4 this due to the level of ambition in the game
It's free with the plus membership!
I would rather know more about the actual game play than clouds and stars in the game.They need to release more info.There was barely any new info at e3
Don't look now; but a PS4 developer just mentioned using technology Xboners thought were exclusive to their mystic "teh cloud". The clouds and stars will be processed to reflect real world conditions. This exact same methodology could be applied to AI or Physics. Technologically speaking; there is no difference. AI and Physics would need to be synced to the second; so over relying on "teh cloud" would be a bad idea (any newbie who ever touched a computer should even have the basic knowledge to understand that a slow internet connection will limit the speed in which you can download information). Stars and cloud positioning is the perfect use for "teh cloud" aka "servers".
it's an always online game. The entire gist of it is to play online with friends/ try to break their records.
It's not an always online game.
Ya not really sure where people getting that information its an always online game. They are heavily marketing the social and online aspect of the game but its not an always online game.
Nope! It is random: "Some of the things that you actually see in the DriveClub demo like the accurately simulated clouds, they are random every single time you play the game."
It looks Graphically worse than GT6 and looks old and tired compared to Project CARS WiiU/PC.
@Triforce The PS3 is future proof but not that future proof. Driveclub looks amazing Brah and it's only going to look even better by launch.
Now this is the good version of the cloud. Man I am gald I am smart enough to play watch dogs for $400 instead of $500 unlike some.
That would be bloody awful. I live in Scotland, I'd never get to play the game without rain.
"The PlayStation 4 is quite simply the most powerful console from the graphics point of view that’s ever existed." It's obvious !
Well it is, you would have to be completely arrogant to say otherwise.
but what about teh cloud ...?
another developer praises PS4´s graphics capability. considering TLOU is the most beautiful game released till now, we can expect crazy things in next-gen
Just imagine what naughty dog can do with this freaking console !
Wait until ps4 is released games will look the same as wiiu and xbox1 end of,wiiu has edram and xbox has cloud so it all evens out...WiiU has NERD developing cloud features to make wiiu more powerful don't forget that either,plus ive seen remarkable wiiu games running at Full HD already.
I like clouds.
Clouds are clearly THE biggest thing on developers minds right now. As long as they can say cloud in their press interviews or reveals they are happy. We got accurately simulated clouds! Well.... We got a cloud that accurately simulates...
Yeah until cloud is mentioned in the same sentence as Microsoft then not so much
It's good to hear more facts about my PS4. Bring it on devs! Third party devs praises are much better though.
I would much prefer Evolution making a game similar to Motorstorm. I don't care for driving simulators, prefer my driving games to be more arcade.
They've said compare it more to PGR than GT. It isn't a driving simulator it IS more of an arcade style racer
Yes a next gen motorstorm would look awesome on the ps4.
Agreed on that, would love to have seen a next gen motorstorm game. Dont get me wrong Driveclub looks fantastic and might just be fun but MS could've been insanely fun. Oh well, maybe they got another team working on MS PS4.
I'm sure there will be a version of Motorstorm on PS4 one day, even if it's a PSN downloadable game only. And driveclub looks great I just will they chose 60fps over eye candy.
It is 60 fps.
@HammadTheBeast, When and where did they confirm that?
I wasn't all too convinced by what I've seen. The lighting looked good. Trees looked good being proper 3D trees unlike Gran Turismo's 2D picture of trees stuck together. The sea in the background look like it needed seem work. water didn't look very next gen-ish. But overall gameplay looked like it could be fun.
they've got time to polish the game up between now and launch.
yes I know that they've said it looks different everyday with each build so I hope it looks and performs brilliantly on release
Considering developers are starting to receive their final PS4 dev kits, I think we'll see these games polish up quite a bit before release.
Every build you saw of the game after Feb. 20th, it was 35% done.
it depends on what they mean when they say 35% though. They could mean the tracks they showed were completely finished and that is how they will look and that they are currently building more tracks. Or that even the tracks that were shown weren't even built fully yet and can look so much better
With that 35% being labeled as pre-alpha, I doubt much of anything is completely finished, polished, etc.
I'm sure it was all skeletal,. and they are now rendering it to perfection,, .
Jab at Forza with the pre baked lighting and dynamic weather comment :)
Lol!! Comparing both gameplay id say its a PS3 game
Meh, as astronomy geek I like to have real stars instead of random white points... anyway with no open world they should include at least 30 or 40 locations to keep me playing after a couple of weeks.
You would be a good ally to have in DayZ as the arma 2 engine uses the real star system.So you would know where the north star is and be able to get around without a compass at night.
And Dayz will come to PS4. The good thing about next-gen (PS4 only ofc) that mods will come to it.
Wow, a first party dev praises the console made by the company they are owned by. I never thought I'd see the day.
Though what he says is completely comprehensible by our information, so he just spoke the truth.
Somehow I don't think you'd see it that way if it was another consoles first party dev giving the same sort of praise to that console.
^You're right, if Turn10 would say that the Xbox One is the most powerful console right now I wouldn't see it that way because we know the specs of both consoles by now.
Yeah, I guess they're the only devs praising the PS4. Third parties have been pretty silent. Oh, wait...
Like Turn 10?
Simulated Clouds only possible with the Cloud... Oh wait.
So the Ps4 is so powerful it simulates the cloud that the xbone needs? Impressive.
Not really. Xbox One still has the upper hand. Clouds will be more like clouds with the cloud calculation capabilities of Microsoft's Cloud. That's some Cloudception for you.
Ps4 still has the upper hand... Naughty Dog.
Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed Gaikai can do cloud computations as well. So back off the inflated M$ shaft and close your mouth before you catch that M$std.
I wasn't serious, why would you take such a sentence serious? Jesus some people... There you go allright: /s
The future is bright, and apparently Cloudy too.
Good thing PS4 is powerful enough to handle this kind of techs, no pile of crap like off loading AI to cloud and all that crap.. Not saying that cloud is unnecessary tech for online experience, but PS4's hardware is enough for this..
An obvious dig at Forza. The AI has to be done in the cloud as its collecting data from players around the world and then loading it into your game. Its not a case that the hardware can't handle it but to give you a varied game. No matter how many teraflops 'your' hardware has if you want varied gameplay rather than your standard 'follow the line' AI racing opponents then you have to do something different. I was originally looking forward to DriveClub after the initial reveal but I have to say the hands on reports and videos from E3 leave me completely cold. I have a funny feeling this isn't going to be a great game or review well.
Collecting data from players around the world and loading it into your game? You don't need the cloud for that. Motorstorm RC does that already on Vita/PS3. In fact, many racing games do that. Why would you need the cloud for that?
Well how do you think the Vita does it, telegram?
