6 Reasons DriveClub’s Delay Isn’t The End Of The World

MMGN.com: With news of Driveclub’s delay now out in the open and confirmed, many gamers feel it’s pushed the PlayStation 4 back in the launch stakes. But it’s not quite the end of the world yet. Sure, the game promised to launch an exciting new racing IP alongside brand spankin’ new hardware, but there’s still plenty of upside to a console with much more to offer than a new racing franchise. (Driveclub, PS4)

if you want that real ****, it's called Gran Turismo 6 and it's only on ps3.

Yep i am, im glad they are giving it more time, another plus is it means more time on gt 6.
VonBraunschweigg  +   459d ago
Yes, I was looking forward to GT6 and now Driveclub has been delayed I'm really looking forward to the game, it's pretty much the only racegame me and my Logitech can look forward to. Forza is not an option, I live in a tier 2 country, Xbox One will launch here around the same time as Driveclub, and you have to buy a new, expensive wheel to enjoy it, current wheels are not supported.

However, I don't expect they will port GT6 to PS4, I think they will start from scratch with GT7 for PS4 which means it will take another 2-3 years before we see a true nextgen GT game. I understand PS3's userbase is bigger, but imo it would have been better if GT6 was made for PS4 to be released in the 1st year of the coming generation, just like Forza. Although Forza fans are now forced to buy a new wheel, if money isn't the problem they do have a great game to look forward to as well.

Not really. At least I am not. I am glad the game is in the line up for those that like racers, and I have high hopes for it when it hits PS+, but I think my heart will always be with Gran Turismo.
Need for Speed is my other go to game when I am in the mood for arcade street racers.

Its not the end of the world because were all still alive.

The problem isn't the delay, it is more the fact that the developers were so quick to make it a launch title to be sold with the game and now they tell us that it is delayed. Watchdogs was the same issue.

Because of the abundance of better racing sims? But being real its not like this is Gran Turismo being Delayed.

i think sony wants to make all cars lovers to focus on GT
showtimefolks  +   459d ago
i guess you can say that, but thing is GT series has its fanbase and its gonna sell no matter what. GT6 will sell 5-7 million copies within first few months just like GT5 did

personally i am glad i can enjoy GT6 than get to enjoy DC on ps4
Soldierone  +   459d ago
THAT is the issue though. Racing fans are going to buy GT, which means they will cut out other games. If you delay DriveClub, you get a few angry PS4 fans, but overall racing fans will be looking for a new game when it comes out and have 60 bucks again.

You delay GT6 and you get a WHOLE BUNCH of angry fans since GT is so massive.

I'll be to busy with KZ:SF, and Battlefield 4, with a little Resogun, thrown into the mix, -for the first 6 months.

plus madden, 2k12, assassins, nfs:rivals, injustice. ..the list goes on!

Am i the only one who wants Need For Speed Rivals more?
Scatpants  +   459d ago
No, I also preordered Rivals. It looks way more fun. Drive club looks kind of generic to me like a me too Forza clone.
g-nome  +   459d ago
GT6
AnotherProGamer  +   459d ago
maybe they delayed it for sony's VR I remember seeing they were making VR that was coming out next year and Driveclub was one of the game that supports it
Scatpants  +   459d ago
It's also not the end of the word because its an average looking launch title that no one cares about.
gamer7804  +   459d ago
not the end of the world, but i was looking forward to playing it, but now only 2 retail launch titles?? Thats crazy.
OCEANGROWNKUSH  +   459d ago
I was pretty excited for this game, the fact every person with a ps4/online would have this game on day one would have been incredible. I was really looking forward to playing this at launch and having it delayed with 3 weeks before launch is a slap in the face, they should have known that it wasn't going to make it in time well before that.
