DRIVECLUB at Gamescom: The “Social Network” of Racers

Rodgers, the game's director, described Driveclub as the “social network for racing games,” and this is exemplified by the game’s Challenge system. If you feel especially confident about a run on a certain track, with a certain car, even at a certain time of day, you can issue a challenge to your club, sending a notification to their PS4s or to their mobile phones (courtesy of the Driveclub Mobile app). (Driveclub, PS4)

Why? A driver at Harvard decided to create a driving network for his school after getting the idea from two twin drivers? But when the network which was called The Drive Club caught on outside his school, Justin Timberlake came into the picture and said that "Drive Club" (without the "the") would be a better name. Then it caught on for real. The driver got into a harsh lawsuit, but millions of drivers started using his network. Then Drive Club was nominated for an Oscar, but lost somewhat ridicolously to "The King's Wheels"? Is that why it's called the Social Network of Racers, or should I read and not just watch movies?

More like the Google+ of racers! Ha!
No, but let's get another inflammatory Forza/GT discussion going. On a Drive Club thread.

LOL..and what does that have to do with being a racing game with the best online feature set that supports its community..forza players set up drift clubs..paint cars for eachother...you know.."social" stuff that does not actually even have to involve racing..Forza does that better than any racer, regardless of sales. Just beacse A game sells a shit load that does not mean it has features that are present inb other games...your response to my question was sales...that sounds so familiar..well it does if your neitral in the matter..you have more in common with the average Xbox fanboy than you are willing to admit..

you are two hypocrites with no common sense. shut up. your wack.

Oh..and guess what? ill be playing GT6 in december...JUST like you..I bet that makes you upset. I have the driving game you love...and the driving game you love to hate. Im going to be honest and say I hope this upsets you..but if not thats OK...your just to random scrubs on the internet. Not like I give a shit about your feelings.

All the time I see this "social" with "Driveclub" is a let down.

The game looks great, but at least it can have a cheap championship or cheap story mode to give the solo players a reason to race.
