It seems that the only people "reacting" are fans of the competition who would rather play an unfinished game

GarrusVakarian924d ago

Yep. Think about it, they KNEW it would make the PS4 launch line up even weaker than it is but they still chose to delay it rather than release an unfinished game, i can respect that.

shoddy923d ago

I'm ok with the delay.
It save me money.
I'm too busy with gta5, ghost, battlefield, killzone,

Each game would take at least a month out of my life

darthv72923d ago

Delays happen. to think reaction is coming from the competition is stupid. If you are a fan of gaming in general you understand that delays suck ass but they happen.

the nature of the delay is what should be the focus. If the game is delayed because it is getting much needed polish then let it take its time to be ready.

if the game is delayed due to porting issues (not that would be the case here for DC) then it makes people pissed because it could be ready for their platform but they have to wait for it to be ready across the board (cough.. rayman legends..cough)

I think this is healthy for the xbone fanboys/gals they have been spinning all summer with M$ 180s then dGPU, hidden power, xbone being incapable of 1080p .....etc
and calling cute-s an actual gameply .. pathetic! they even made Gifs just like the deep down once except one is an actual Gameply

so they finally got a chance to downply the ps4 so let them let all the stress out they may feel better and stop spinning fact for change

Gamingcapacity923d ago

The way people reacted as if it had been cancelled altogether. It's a delay, it happens.

It's getting stupid because it's a constant back and forth between the fanboys. One set of fanboys say they do it to get their own back but dont realise that it's been going back and forth for a log time. Not since the MS DRM, not since Move and Kinect, not since the PS3 launnch but from the start.

Why cant people stop trying to one up each other because it's not going to end. You might feel like you're doing something but youre not. Theres always something new to find but its getting silly. Game delays, PS4 not support external DVR at launch, cloud will never work (it will), PS4 freezing (it didnt), my console will have better games (first round it even and it's very subjective, how indies all of a sudden mean jack shit (Theyre the soul of the industry).

The only thing that deserved to be made a fuss over was the MS DRM but they fixed it. Even if the X1 is weaker it doesn't matter to the scale people argue blindly over it every day, kept it in theyre back pocket and troll ready.

This goes to both sets of fanboys. I just even seen MS trolls in the RYSE articles derailing their own comments section goading Sony fanboys. Nice One!

I was really looking forward to DriveClub, the game looked great to me already, didn't care much about its ailising or it being 30fps.
The only concern I DID have was that none of the demos showed multi car races, only racing against ghost cars.

I'm not against the delay, there had to be a good reason to delay a launch title so I fully support it but I'm still bummed out. Still plenty of other games to play on PS4 and GT6 on PS3 will be great anyway.

PS4 delays

They mean DriveClub...the others being multiplatform games which are on both consoles.

Mikelarry923d ago

Some fans are so fickle was it not just recently everyone was up in arms about gtaV crashing and losing character etc. the game developers are trying to take time and polish the game rather than release a buggy mess and they complain. no wonder the industry sometimes don't take gamers seriously

s8anicslayer924d ago

In reference to Driveclub, We can only blame ourselves fort he delay because of our constant expectations of 1080p 60fps. For Watchdogs it was more of a decision to delay because of all of the other games being released in that time frame. Ubi wants it to be released with little competition so they can continue the franchise.

avengers1978923d ago

That maybe the case, but watchdogs was doing pretty well in preorders, and really pushing it to next year doesn't stop it from going up against other big games. Infamous, TitanFall, dying light, evil within, and destiny are all out next year in the same time frame as watchdogs.

Hopefully they are taking time to make the game a lot better

s8anicslayer923d ago (Edited 923d ago )

Indeed, but in terms of Ubi competing with themselves with the likes of AC IV and the after effects of GTA V which is still a factor going into the holidays they feel much safer next year in terms of sales.

123pol923d ago

yeah it seams that the people whose quotes were written were from people who was going to buy a xbone or just didnt like ps4

ShinnokDrako923d ago

@xHeavYx
Exactly, i don't even know why they care since they're not going to get a PS4 (and they don't even care about the game).
I admit it was a sad news for me, i was really waiting to play it with my PS+ but... well, if it gets better, it's ok. BUT i want to see it on PS+ when it's out ;P

yellowgerbil924d ago

Not very happy about it. Watchdogs was the only game I was going to buy. None of the others really appealed to me. Driveclub was cool because it was free, not a racer fan but at launch am more open to things. I likely won't even download it in the spring because by then games I ACTUALLY want will be out like Infamous.
I wonder if they will add a new free game now though

JimmyLmao923d ago (Edited 923d ago )

they are... Contrast and Resogun free on day 1 :)
then plus the 7 other free games on day 1 :P

yellowgerbil923d ago

Contrast is free now?!
That was the one downloadable game that really looked good.

BTBuck1924d ago

lets face it, we're all going to have plenty to play as it is, i for one am glad they're spacing it out a bit. I may have otherwise completely skipped over some of these titles.

Consoles4kidz924d ago

Watchdogs was delayed because the ps4 version isnt ready, its ready on xbox. Ps4 in general is having red line of death issues, you can watch it on youtube.

Majin-vegeta923d ago

Lol that just happens when it gets to hot.Once they pulled it out it went back to normal.

Kingthrash360923d ago (Edited 923d ago )

lol this guy.....lol im not gunna bite.
rrod= the actual DEATH of you console
red line of "death"= hey idiot, your overheating me by locking me in a closed box. (console dosent die)

so sick of xb fanny boys trying to lable the ps4 w the same hell the 360 had.

ot i hate the delays...but better games happen..they seen the problems and want to fix them rather than let it release broken.

SCW1982923d ago

Your name should be comments4kids because that was the stupidest pile of shit that just came out of your tiny brain.

tracyllrkn923d ago

You made me laugh. That was funny.

cell989923d ago

Watchdogs was ready on xbox? where did you read this? the PS4 is holding development back? where did you read all of this, point me out please

thejigisup923d ago

Perhaps devs realized they shouldn't holds back one console bc of another consoles limitations. And in general I used to put my xbox in a plastic bag to see If it wouldn't over heat
