This game ,now, is way better from what we saw at E3.

i expect this game to get lots of support after the release for quite some time. thats the beauty of being able to patch and add items even after it launches.

I just got a 50€ discount code from Amazon for this game, now I get the full version almost for free :D
devwan  +   670d ago
You can platinum the game with the ps+ version - tells you all you need to know.

@zod18 - where/how did you get the code?

Awesome. So its not like KI where you have one character and have buy EVERYTHING ELSE piece by piece?
Oh and its free?
thetruthx1  +   671d ago
With KI you can buy the whole game along with the original KI or you can buy only the characters you want... Very simple
Eonjay  +   671d ago
With DriveClub AND Resogun its a full free game because thats the definition of Free. Xbox doesn't come with a free game. Just a KI demo.

Well I'm a plus member and would've gotten this day one regardless. I'm not worried about the lack of split screen as I'm a screen hog and would rather have my own telly all to my self. I'll play this in between down sessions with GT6. It will be hard to devote a ton of time to this game with GT6 out at the same time, but I will do my best! Looking to crush some sector times.

So Ps4 supports all the Ps3 steering wheels, is that correct? I bought a Logitech G25 just for GT5, it would suck if such an expensive awesome wheel didn't work.

If you're denying there are some things better about DC than F5, you're the one in a dreamworld.
scott182  +   671d ago
Definitely better than forza 5 from the gameplay I have seen. Very amazing graphics and sense of speed second to none. No split screen is annoying, but doesn't change the great gameplay. Plus the club feature online makes it the best for online play.
Xsilver  +   671d ago
funny on how u get dislikes for saying its better forza on a playstation article hmmm i smell xbots, anyway DC has a sense of speed when u drive that u really can feel makes sense since its from motorstrom devs. and it will defiantly be more fun than Forza everyone who has played it said its the most fun next gen racer and the graphics are so realistic http://www.youtube.com/watc... with amazing lighting and depth of field in the environment that u see amazing mountains in the background and night racing looks stunning.
MasterCornholio  +   671d ago
Well in some ways its better.

I challenge you to a race where the best drifter wins and the weather changes every minute.

You cant do that with Forza for example.

Need For Speed < The Crew < Forza 5 < Drive-Club < Project Cars

*My own personal opinion. Just because something is considered "less than" something else, doesn't mean the game is shit. ALL of these games look FANTASTIC and just pure FUN. However, I'll be getting Drive Club for its style of gameplay and Project Cars on PC for the fucking AMMMMAAAZZZIINNNGG graphics.

Ssooo..... Its not the full game!?
Ripsta7th  +   671d ago
Lol right
scott182  +   671d ago
One could argue that no game is the full game, with different editions of games to be purchased and downloadable content. I love that I get to play Drive club for free, and I am planning on getting additional content.

It has never been promised as a full game. Thus "PS+ Edition" in the name. Trying hard to pull that "180" card aren't ya?
buynit  +   671d ago
Uummm.. No i wasnt..

Its either the full game or its not, no shame either way as you are getting a large portion of the game for free..

My goodness you sony fanatics are out of control! Let me make you feel like you accomplished something... I cant wait to get ki and i heard it will be something like this as well..
Death  +   671d ago
Aren't you paying attention? It is the full game, 100%. It's just missing some stuff. See the difference? It's not a partial game missing some stuff to make it complete, it is the complete game now, just missing some stuff.
buynit  +   671d ago
Well when you put it like that... (at&t voice) lol
Convas  +   671d ago
What!? Did you read what you posted?

The game's complete? Except ... it's not?

If ALL the content is not there, IT IS NOT COMPLETE.

It's better than the Demo of Killer Instinct that you get free to pay.....Just the fact that free to play games on PS4 are actually free to play and don't require PS+ make the PS4 more appealing...Games on the X1 shouldn't be called free to play since they still require a gold membership
Death  +   670d ago
So...you are saying the Drive Club PS+ edition is better than the games on XboxOne that require a Gold subscription to play. So it would be bad if the Drive Club PS+ edition was only downloadable by PS+ subscribers...

The PS+ edition of Drive Club. The PS+(Playstation Plus) edition. Is it sinking in?

Here's the cool thing about the PS+ edition of Drive Club. You need to be a PS+ subscriber to access it if the name is accurate. They allow you to upgrade to the full version at a discount if you are not a Plus subscriber, but they yank the online multiplayer part that is now subscription based.

I'll be honest, the new PSN/PS+ stuff is kind of confusing. Is Drive Club PS+ Edition free to everyone or just subscribers and what is the point of upgrading from the + version to the full version if you are not a subscriber and can't play online? It sounds like you need to upgrade and subscribe to use the entire game.
Infamous298  +   671d ago
i am getting the ps plus edition because i am not really into racing games, however if i liked it , i will upgrade to the full version.
ABizzel1  +   671d ago
Any intelligent individual would do the same.
Deadpoolio  +   671d ago
And thats where the Xbots that go on about PS+ free games being rentals make absolutely no sense. Not only would I not let my PS+ expire, but it gives you the ability to try games that you might not otherwise, and when your finished with a game you can just delete it.....Once your done with a game generally people are done with it besides the fact that it stays in your download list forever
ABizzel1  +   670d ago

Agreed, I would have never bought Hitman, Just Cause 2, The Walking Dead, and many of the PSN games, but I've enjoyed all of them and most of the PSN games (Gotham City Imposters, Outland, Walking Dead, Pac-Man, Sideway, Joe Danger, and more). In fact the only PS+ games I really didn't like were Magic the Gathering and Foosball.

On top of that I have a PSVita, and thanks to PS+ it save me hundreds of dollars per year so I don't have to spend money buying games for my PC, PS3, 360, 3DS, PSVita, and soon PS4 (Wii U 2014).

PS+ is a system seller IMO.
Slysi  +   671d ago
@ buynit,was thinking the same thing, it's the full game minus some cars and tracks,so basically it's not the full game.
buynit  +   671d ago
Yea i see what these fools are doing! I bet its minus all the good cars and tracks lol... I mean what else could they minus? A selection of wheels? Lol

The game now puts itself in a position that it has to be really good to warrant the rest, just my opinion...
Slysi  +   671d ago
Guaranteed to be the best bits left out, but if I like what I play and its not to expensive I don't mind putting some cash into it..
Deadpoolio  +   671d ago
They could make it like Killer Instinct and make it minus everything but 1 car and 1 track...Oh wait while they are a company that just wants consumer's money they aren't flat out greedy clown shoes like Micro$haft.....But you buy what you want or what makes you think your ding dong is bigger....

Enjoy your $25 play and charge kits....
Overpriced Headset adapters just to use a 360 headset.
Non upgradeable HDD stuck at 500gb
and everything locked behind a pay wall....

I'll enjoy my rechargeable battery standard
PS3 headsets working out of the box
Putting in my 1tb HDD that I already bought
and only having MP locked behind the Pay wall....

Sony may only pretend to care but at least they pretend
amnalehu  +   671d ago
When you buy Battlefield 3 but not the premium edition, are you buying the full game? Can you access all of the features of the game and complete the games single player mode? They have already stated that you will be able to buy the extension which will give you every car and every track at a discount. Even if it cost $25-$30 to buy that content, it will still be cheaper than going to a retailer and buying the game.

That's decent for people who are upgrading to PS4 and already have PS+. To be fair if you're on PS+ you could order the console, sign in when you get it and play quite a lot of free games right off the bat without even having to spend anything more. Nice idea if buying the console left you strapped.
ABizzel1  +   671d ago
Buy a PS4 get 10 games free "hopefully" by the end of the 2013 (most are trying to hit launch, no later than launch window).

Planetside 2
DC Universe

"Bbbbbbut you need PS+ and PS+ is a RIPOFF! I rather spend $10 more each month JUST to access my internet on my Xbox! Oh man, thinking about Xbox just made me hungry for some Mountain Dew and Doritos!"

TheFutureIsBlue  +   671d ago
Very good for people who are iffy when it comes to racing games. I will defintely give it a try when I first get my ps4. If I like it I will support the devs and buy the full game.
