Driveclub: You Can Still Get Platinum Trophy with PS Plus Edition; Upgrade Price Announced Soon

The fact that the PlayStation Plus Edition of Driveclub won’t allow you to complete the single player Tour mode made many wonder Sony Computer Entertainment walked back on its promise made last year of allowing players to earn the platinum trophy without purchasing the full version, Apparently they didn't, while the option to upgrade will still be made available, and the price will be announced soon. (Driveclub, PS4)

So, still has an upgrade price and platinum .... guess we can all stop bitching about how sony giving us a major portion of one of their biggest AAA games FOR FREE at launch is a "slap in the face."

Eh, people always find a lot of excuses to feel "slapped in the face." It makes for a very attractive headline, in the worst possible meaning.

some hit bait bloggers will still find a way to bitch and moan about something futile and be sensationalistic about it.

I wish PS4 owners would realise there isn't a backlog of AAA titles for Sony to draw on for PS+ at the moment. Developers are going to want to get back as much money as they can on their investments, so it's unlikely that we'll see even ONE AAA title within the first year. Perhaps Sony will eventually release Knack or Killzone, but even those titles aren't guaranteed. Until then, I'm quite content to be getting free Indie titles and the upcoming Driveclub, especially when I'm still getting free PS3 games and purchasing Vita titles just in case I finally get the money together to buy one.

First AAA game is drive club which is coming in october . So from there we can expect More AAA's . We may even get 1 indy and 1 AAA too :P . My bet on november/december game is knack lol . I didn't buy it so wouldn't mind if it comes for free :P . If that didn't happen then it's ok with me , i can wait :P.

People just need to be patient. It's stupid to expect big games this early.

If it was microsoft in this position all of the defense force would have seen that article and the uploader banned for life.

I think it's really just a matter of the way the msg is delivered.

I'm a huge Sony supporter, and usually a critic of ungratefulness, yet even I have had trouble reconciling the messaging from last year about this game, vs this year.

Last year by saying the game let you platinum with the Plus version, the implication was the Plus version was fairly complete. Now it sounds quite limited, despite the platinum still being on the table.

I think people are confusing the matter. What we're seeing here is a direct result of in-app-purchase fatigue. After the hype and the delays, people are now realizing that maybe this game will be filled with IAP. To me, and many, they are heavily tarnishing the racing genre, in particular.

So this "upgrade price"....

We all get he PS+ version free which whatever anyone thinks ITS STILL FREE. You can basically play that and if you feel it's good enough to invest in then upgrade....

What i was wondering is will the upgrade cost a full retail price of £60 or will it be discounted?

Is it possible to buy this game on its own as a physical full game copy?
Abriael  +   204d ago
Bet you it'll be discounted. By how much, I have no idea, but my bet is on 30-40 bucks. Feel free to counter with yours.

I'd say 40-50, 30 is a bit too steep. But I agree, it's pretty clear they intend to cut the price some for PS+ users who upgrade.
Madderz  +   204d ago
I have no idea TBH!!

I would probably guess the same sort of price. 30-40.

However I would only pay that given the PS+ version leaves me wanting more!
gamer7804  +   204d ago
Probably 50 to 55. I don't see it being lower than 50 at launch
Lucreto  +   204d ago
I believe there are microtransactions.

You can buy the full game or if you want a single car you can buy it or a single track.
Majin-vegeta  +   204d ago
There are no Microtransactions. They were referring to DLC which people blew out of proportion.
Lucreto  +   204d ago
He also clarified what he meant with a previous vague statement on microtransactions, promising that there won’t be any “consumable” boost available for purchase in Driveclub.

From Dualshockers: "For the moment only three countries (Scotland, Norway and India) have been officially announced, but we don’t know if there will be more in the final game."

That's wrong. We know also Canada and Chile.
Canada you saw at Gamescom 2013 and Chile in the Audi R8-video in September 2013.
Abriael  +   204d ago
Thanks. I missed those, fixed.
The_BoZZ1991  +   204d ago
Welcome! No problem :)
mynameisq  +   204d ago
Look guys while I do agree with you that certain people expect too much from PS+, that does not change the fact that the early information about DriveClub seemed to insinuate that the PS+ version would be only slightly worse off than the full version but this is simply not true.

If I say to you I'll give you a million dollars for free, of course you'd be ecstatic but then later if I give you only 500 thousand (still for free) you'd wonder where the other 500 thousand was. It's the same case here, while I'm pleased with the Driveclub being offered, it is not what I expected from reading all those early quotes

You can still earn a platinum? Works for me, I'm happy now.
AceBlazer13  +   204d ago
Still gonna buy to support the game.

mynameisq  +   204d ago
Definitely buying the full version, game looks sweeeeeeeet
AntsPai  +   204d ago
I'm happy with this, was less happy before but this is good enough I guess, baby steps it's a new console. Hope upgrade is like £20 or so lol
jjonez18  +   204d ago
I hope more sony games come with this ps+ perk. Try the first few levels, then Get the entire game at a discount. This would definitely get me to download more of my games digitally.
BABY-JEDI  +   204d ago
Hope people realise his game has cost a lot of money to develop. I also hope if the game is good that hey will fully support it for future iterations
; )
Don't b*tch about freebies, appreciate what you get
yewles1  +   204d ago
Nah-ah! If the PS+ Edition allows for a plat while having only one country available, then what possibly could the trophies themselves, or even the campaign, consist of?
Lilrizky  +   204d ago
that is actually pretty surprising
GasTankKiller  +   203d ago
All I really want is the ability to customize the rides.
Delsin_Rowe  +   203d ago
@porkChop see I told you
JMyers  +   203d ago
Good... Can people stop complaining now?

PS+ is awesome value and reward for a gamer's subscription.
