The Blu-ray retail release of Driveclub will not include a 50 per cent PS Plus discount as originally announced, SCE UK has confirmed to VideoGamer.
Well that sucks. I wonder if the digital version will be discunted? The article just says "Blu-ray retail release". If so i'll get it digital.
I had no idea this retail discount voucher even existed, lol. I always thought that if you downloaded the PS plus version, you got a discount on the full digital version. I thought the physical release was at a fixed price from the start.....Oh well. Is that still planned? If it is, i might have to make this my first digital purchase of the gen.
Well, the "source" was not revealed, I'll wait till an official announcement, but yeah, how do you get a retail discount?
Developer of the game mentioned that the game might be offered on a discount if upgrading from the PS+ version of the game (digital only).
Haha, more and more failings of the Sonys promises from the reveal and E3 last year. Ah well, still not nearly as bad as 2005 and not nearly as bad as MS in general.
Hardly the case, The promotion was going due to The PS4 launching, and the fact that Driveclub was originally a launch title. But trolls will be trolls!
@sourgrouch: Yeah, because obviously the most important things to a console's specifications are the latest bluetooth and wifi profiles (which you mentioned TWICE EACH) </sarcasm>. Not the RAM and GPU, which are both the best of all consoles. Hahaha. Wow.
@sourgrouch yeah I felt similar last gen when I bought the Xbox360 MW2 bundle, no blue ray drive, no digital optical out, no built in wifi. Boy that doomed Microsoft didn't it. oh wait it didn't and the PS4 not having the latest Bluetooth or Wifi will do just fine, move along troll.
It wasn't a discount for the game, it was a 50% discount for PS+.
Right, and it was a launch promotion. Since the PS4 has launched and Driveclub has been delayed such a promotion isn't needed.
hahaha 'discunted' have a funny bubble!
I knew there was somebody else lol at "discunted" ...
Who ONLY has a PS4, PSN+ is becoming less and less appealing by the day. I hope Sony offers better PS4 games with PSN+ in the near future, because the games offered until now aren't that great, or rather disappointing.
I've been playing 'stick it to the man' and it is actually pretty cool. reminds me alot of ren and stimpy.
What!!! PS+ is losing it's value, Oh man! You're right, I should cancel plus and delete Resogun Outlast & Mercenary kings. Man... you're such a lifesaver. /s It's a good thing the video apps still work with out it... right? Gateway MT6706 2008
Have to have the disc, I like discs.
Also, hard drive space is precious lol
But the game will be installed anyway. It'll just be easier to jump back into the game after a few months since you don't have to redownload it, just pop the disc in and install it.
... and apparently more spacious that it's rival. With 408gb of space, it's not half bad. Gateway MT6706 2008
Its not the space or ease of use, I just like physically owning something I paid for as opposed to it being on a hard drive, not that I dont see the appeal of digital or anything, plus a good game collection will allways look better than a few filled hard drives lol
Never even knee that was on the table. Was always gonna get the digital one anyway.
Guys, this had nothing to do with a discount on the game. It was a voucher/discount for PS+ that came with the game.
No biggie, I'm sure there will be other PS+ subscription discounts to be had elsewhere.
I can see why. Most people probably have ps+ if they have PS4 anyways. So they would lose alot of money if like more than 50% bought it for half the price.
Yeah when I get a PS4 I was going to buy a year of PS+ anyway, I wasn't even aware of this offer. No point discounting if plenty of people are buying it anyway.
I think Sony said more than half of all PS4 owners have PS+. So yeah, they would lose a bunch of money.
Wait is this the 3 month PS+ card that came with it??
Well, duh. That was only launch titles.
Ryan Clark- "We areeee-aah DeeemonHunter!" OT- I don't see what the hubluff is all about. Obviously the promotion to get people to buy it with PS+ would only be logical at launch
I'm glad someone caught the picture! The same goes for my name, too. It has nothing to do with Anonymous. I'm using it in the original form: The Bible.
So is this game not free now
Nah, this is just the PS+ sub that came with the game. Sony just reaffirmed the other day that Plus Subs will get the Drive Club digital edition still.
i always thought is was a free game. thats what i remember hearing.
This game was meant to be free now its not even discounted. Its delay after delay so like allot of people I will not be buying this game.
There was supposed to be a coupon that came with it to give you PS Plus subscription for 50% off, not ps plus members get the game for 50% off. That would be ridiculous. Is that actually what you thought?
well i guess i wont be playing the game this year at least make a demo for it.
PS+ version is free. 10 Cars and 5 tracks... what else do you want??
oh there´s a demo for it i see that´s nice.
Lando: "This deal is getting worse all the time." Sony: "Pray I don't alter it any further."
for those who don't understand. If You have A PS+ IT'S STILL FREE. What they are saying is there was a 50% off ps+ work the hard copy. Make sense?
No drame here really... I believe we are still getting 10 Cars and 5 tracks as part of the PS+ digital Offer The months of plus, and the discount will not come with the retail disk version. This was a lauch window offer. How does this de-value PS+? The plus version will still be there. Anyways, everyone has the option to buy or not to buy. Make your decision then. Note that in the same week the following games are due to be released: Alien: Isolation Dragon Age: Inquisition Shadow of Mordor (Possibly) I think this game should be out earlier. Sony will be putting a racer up with some strong third party offerings.
