DriveClub Right Now is “Running at [email protected], Delay Statement Had Nothing to do With Watch Dogs

"When it comes to narrowing down the DriveClub release date to more than ‘early 2014′ the developer said, “There are many things that need to be confirmed before we can be more specific.”" - PSLS

They weren't joking 3 months ago!

My excitement for this game is now officially over 9000! I mean just look at it

xHeavYx1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

I don't see a big problem with 30fps, especially when the game has 3D background and great lightning effects, like a next gen racing game should have

vulcanproject1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

Project Gotham series is the best more arcade style racer with real supercars I have played on the current generation, even now PGR3 and 4 are just brilliant games. They look fantastic, they handle superb, the game is immense fun online and off.

Its 30FPS, and I don't care. It doesn't matter. It wouldn't be a much much better game if it ran 60FPS. It would be smoother, but the performance at 30FPS is so good and so solid and stable it doesn't really matter in the slightest. The motion blur is beautiful high quality and smoothes out any doubts you are playing a class act.

If Driveclub looks this pretty which is fantastic and runs rock solid 30FPS with zero screen tearing then it'll matter not.

If it means to be a sim, 60FPS matters because you want that sort of response and faster physics engine. But if it isn't, its never been a deal breaker.

It's amusing how important things like fluidity of a racer is being replaced by fog and moving clouds and talks of lighting that matters very little when you are going at 200km/h.

Funny how next gen now means sacrificing a gameplay feature for looks. How about a game that does ALL those things while maintaining a fluid frame rate? Now that game I'd crown next gen racer, not just the decide based on what the developers on my favorite console are able to do.

UltimateMaster1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

That's disappointing, 30fps.
I wish it were 60fps.

ohiostatesman1391d ago

Forza is 1080P 60 fps. I thought PS4 more powerful? I'm getting Xbox One anyway.

BBBirdistheWord1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

driveclub looks to be a good game with nice fog.

However, I was expecting much more from the ps4.

30fps for a racer on ps4 is just not that impressive, especially after all the noise that was made about the magic of ps4 50%+.

I was really hoping the additional development time resulting from the delay would sort this out, but it looks like its gonna chugg along at 30fps after all.

FamilyGuy1391d ago

Fanboys are scared of this game, true racing fans can appreciate the amount of detail in this game.

Evil_Abed1391d ago

True racing fans appreciate smooth gameplay.

Army_of_Darkness1391d ago

Let's hope they surprise us all with 1080p @60fps when it finally releases.

cleft51390d ago

They definitely made the right move to delay the game. Hopefully they can get it to [email protected]

Sirlancealot1390d ago

All these Forza 5 guys quit it for real. This doesn't look any better than Drive Club.

Here is a comparison of Forza 4 and Forza 5. Forza 5 looks very much like its current gen counterpart. No big difference. Just the lighting and slightly more detail coupled with it being 1080p @ 60FPS as opposed to 720p @ 60FPS...

UltimateMaster1390d ago


Driveclub does not equal Forza Motorsport 5

And whatever you do, don't compare gameplay skill...

At least the Forza has a guiding line just like what Gran Turismo has.

IMO, the background of the races on the PS4, at least for those 2 tracks, looks like it has far more details, looks richer due to the GPU.

I'm guessing they could make some tracks that are 60fps. I don't know.

Irishguy951390d ago

If a Racing game wants to compete with the best, it needs 60FPS. Most of the above comments are literally saying it's ok to have ****er gameplay so better graphics can be done. Sorry, Racing games are one of the Genre's that need the 60. ****ing shame I won't be getting a racing fix on Ps4 for a while. Dammit I wish GT6 was made for Ps4 originally.

Great to see a new Ip such as Drive Club hit 1080P right off the bat.

nukeitall1391d ago


Why is this game still 30fps?

It was supposed to be release in 3 weeks, but got delayed.

Enemy1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

Why is Forza still using static backdrops and baked lighting? I thought this was next gen? Bragging about 60fps is worthless when that's how you get it done.

WickedLester1391d ago

Yeah, I would much rather see them get this game to 60fps. Perhaps they should take a cue from DICE and make it 900p and then upscale it to 1080p. The difference would be hardly noticable at all!

arexw1391d ago

Cos forza is a driving simulator, and driveclub is a weather and geological simulator. Enjoy the stuttery 30 fps in a racing game - i mean sunset simulator

mkis0071391d ago

@arexw haha, screw the world, lets just put cars on a track and call it a game.

Xsilver1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

i see people still acting like the game releases next smh
clearly you can see the game is making allot of improvements so can you guys let the devs breath because apparently u act like you developed a game before ill take a update from the devs in 2014 when the game is close to release.

Septic1391d ago


You need to be quiet about this pre baked lighting nonsense. I've seen you slither into countless Forza articles and regurgitate the same old tired nonsense over and over again.


FPS isnt such a big issue when the game looks as good as it does. The delay may have been to polish the visuals and sort out the gameplay. The early build I played looked mediocre at best. What I'm seeing now looks like it's footage for a completely different game.

FANTA11801391d ago

lmao ... sad is making a game 1080p while sacrificing frame rate ... upscaling it and keeping it 60fps is a more noticable thing.

and to you guys making fun of forza , lmao sad attempt my friends , forza has been handing gran turismo its ass for a while now.

Enemy1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

^ What kind of simulation ignores the fact that there's a such thing as night in the world? I almost feel bad for you Forza kids. Turn 10 doesn't even have the tech to create night races because they've gotten so used to placing fake and bake daytime lighting.

And Septic, for having as many bubbles as you have, couldn't possibly be more misinformed. I've seen you try to call me out before and it's failed. Go ahead and confirm Forza's dynamic lighting and fully rendered in 3D tracks. All you'll find is static.

What Turn 10 are willing to sacrifice for 60fps is truly pathetic. But of course, reading the comments here from woodwork Xbox maggots, they really have convinced the flock that more shine = better graphics. The biggest critics are always the most empty-headed, hence the absolutely uneducated responses.

By the time Turn 10 figures out how to properly model their games, they'll be in last place. So much for realism.

badkolo1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

stop with the bake dlighting lie, its bene proven by the devs its not prebaked, get a life enemy, seriously

xHeavYx1391d ago

You forgot to add the link to support your claim

"Cos forza is a driving simulator, and driveclub is a weather and geological simulator. Enjoy the stuttery 30 fps in a racing game - i mean sunset simulator"

I'm sick of you jealous Xbox fans using this as an excuse! Maybe Forza should just feature a road and nothing else since nothing else matters right? I want to drive "while" looking at a beautiful track with "real" lighting and not static backdrops.

VonBraunschweigg1391d ago

Imo one of the most important differences between Driveclub an Forza is the handling: pretty much all our PS3 wheels are supported by Driveclub while Forza doesn't support any of the Xbox 360 wheels, not even the official Forza wheel from Fanatec that lauched early last year.

Wheel, pedals, few buttons, stick perhaps. Should be compatible. Forcing fans to buy new wheels and not offering a good affordable wheel like the Logitech GT wheel, imo even fans should not support that kind of BS. You're not playing, you're getting played.

T21391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

@nuke Why do u care ?,.... nukeitall is the most trusted source for trolling ps4 on n4g.... He is Not getting a ps4 anyway therefore your posts are useless

FITgamer1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )


"...forza has been handing gran turismo its ass for a while now." You do realize that every GT game as sold 2x and even 3x more copies than Forza 3, which has the highest sales in the franchise. This gen will be no different.

G20WLY1391d ago

^Badkolo, there's nothing "dlighting" about baked lighting... ;P

Outside_ofthe_Box1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )


Why is this game still 30fps?"***

L-O-L! ! !

Why do you care? What happened to, resolution and frame rates don't matter? What happened to, it's all about the experience? What happened to, if resolution and frame rates mattered we should be gaming on PC?

This is pretty hilarious stuff.

Knushwood Butt1391d ago

@ arexw

lol at the haters that are now trying to claim that Forza is a sim!!

Go away and enjoy your lens flare.
