PS4 Exclusive Driveclub May Include Photo Mode

NowGamer: "Images taken from Driveclub UI concept art suggests that the PS4 exclusive could contain some kind of photo mode that allows player to take and share photos in game." (Driveclub, PS4)

Hard to tell

Photo Mode is one of my favourite features in Gran Turismo 5 (and 6), so a next-gen equivalent in DriveClub pleases me greatly.

Photo mode is really awesome. This game is going to be simply amazing. Drive club is going to set a new high bar for Racing sims. Photo mode is just going to make it even better.

I don't think it'll set any benchmarks for a sim seeing the game is clearly attempting to find a happy medium between sim and arcade racers. What I'm interested on is the social aspect of the game, that's the key difference for me, rather than just MP races all against all. The crew set up is going to add a lot for me.

@mewhy32

Not only do I not think this is going to be a sim, I don't really want it to be one either, there are plenty of sim racing games coming out, we need (as @Fishy Fingers said) a racing game that's a perfect mix of Arcade and Sim; all that being said, I'm really excited for this game, and I really hope it's not just another sim.

Yeah, I hope so, but if not, at least we have screenshot and video sharing... and streaming of course. I need this game to come out. Jonzin' for a new game for the PS4... and a driving game that's not Need for Speed.

@sobekflakmonkey: it's not a sim it's an arcade racer. immediate fun!

Agree, Photo share on GT5 was very welcoming to me and a great feature, I was excited to see it in Forza 5 when I got my X1 too, Now Driveclub has it so... duh, EVERY RACING GAME SHOULD HAVE THIS PLEASE, from now on, Im looking at you Dirt 4! ;)

Why is this news? Photo mode is fairly standard now in this genre. I would have assumed it was in there anyway
XiSasukeUchiha  +   503d ago
Photo mode all the better in my eyes surpassing Forza 5 incoming

I hope this menu IS the final menu.
the one we saw in February 2013 was red and black.
it was ok but this looks great.
more colors, looks fresh and easier to look at and navigate.

Looks pretty good!

Looks great. Thanks for sharing. I haven't seen this before.
As for photo mode, they had it in motorstorm so don't see why they wouldn't now

I hope you can just use your profile pics. My Facebook pic is my pic for my account.

It's not the final artwork. these were from pre-announcement.
amnalehu  +   503d ago
As much detail as they are putting into both the inside an outside of these cars, you best believe there will be a photo mode!
Outsider-G  +   503d ago
It better have a photo mode.
MysticStrummer  +   503d ago
Idk I used photo mode one time with GT5, only because I had my real life car in the game and wanted a pic of it racing with higher end sports cars. I took the photo and then never looked at it, so photo mode is a non factor for me.
Ron_Danger  +   503d ago
Or it could just be a screen shot using the share button.
MysticStrummer  +   503d ago
Yeah I saw the title and thought "Doesn't the Share button potentially give every game a photo mode?"
Ron_Danger  +   503d ago
Yeah... And for those who don't know, holding the share button takes a screen shot and double tapping the share button starts recording video (if you're woried that the auto record won't record the right part)
Insomnia_84  +   503d ago
I believe screenshot and photo mode are two different things.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   503d ago
Not the same, screenshot MODE means it freezes your car and lets you travel around 360 degrees to take the perfect shot. The share button only lets you capture what's on your screen at the moment you hold (or press, depending on what you have it set to) the button. I have it set to 'press' so because it's quicker and allows to time things screenshots better.

Have you never used a photo mode in a racing game before?

I've used photo mode in GT5 to take a pic of the Loch Ness Monster. The only reason I brought up the share button was because this article is labeled "Rumor" so I was just throwing out an alternate theory for the concept render that this article is based off of.

A separate photo mode in Drive Club would be cool, but the addition of screen shot capture with the share button eleminates the need for a photo mode.
