Very Nice. Microsoft is buying Sony's Playstation division, confirmed.

Maybe now Evolution Studios can license tech from Turn 10 Studios to make Drive Club go from 30 fps to 60 fps & 1080p.

Cannot wait for Drive Club.

MrSwankSinatra796d ago

Yeah and i'm buying a unicorn.

Ashlen796d ago

Can I go for a ride on it?!?

SO Turn10 is going to teach them their ways of the downgrade..cardboard cut out crowds incoming!

True_Samurai796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

Look at Drive Club's crowd, they're really not that impressive either. :/

@Destrania Jealous? Ooooookey dokey

Destrania796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

Um, yeah they are. You can see full detailed 3D models all reacting differently to the race. Plus the fact that everything else in Driveclub is on a far higher level than Forza as well. Your jealousy is showing.

georgeenoob796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

I never understood the big deal with the crowds. Does anyone actually pull over to the side and sit there to observe the crowds? What kind of nitpicking is this? As if Turn 10 should've made it 30fps like Driveclub cause the crowds are more important. Lol.

Destrania796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

Driveclub is 30fps because it has fully rendered 3D environments in incredible detail with over a million trees in some cases that all cast shadows, dynamic lighting, ultra high-poly cars, amazing reflections, etc. etc. Don't be dumb.

Master-H796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

@George even driving at top speeds something as ugly looking as this http://i.imgur.com/cssuYeS.... definitely would distract me lul

And let's not pretend that's the only difference between the two games, Drive Clubs tracks, environments, day/night, weather, shadows, dynamic lighting and car details almost makes it look a generation ahead of Forza, dat 60 fps came at a price son.

lifeisgamesok796d ago

Lo. Forza looks amazing and has three times the amount of cars to choose from not to mention more cars on the track during a race

MRMagoo123796d ago

And here i was thinking driveclub had a downgrade from the pic that i saw and all along it was a pic of forza, no wonder it looked that bad, kinda dodged a bullet there i think, PS4 owners should all let out a sigh of relief that driveclub doesnt really look as hideous as forza.

theshonen8899796d ago

I can honestly only barely see the difference between 30 fps and 60 fps gameplay. If sacrificing that tiny improvement means getting things like dynamic lighting, real tree models, customizeable day/night cycles, or weather then I'm all in.

ScareFactor796d ago

@Destania

Who cares bout environments in a racing game? It is all about the cars, DriveCLub has 50, Tracks, and customization (don't know if they said it had any).

@Master-H

DriveClubs car detail can not touch Forza 5's, that is the gem of the game. It also has 5x as many cars, and way more realistic driving, and full customization, and let's not forget its actually 60fps

Blaze929796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

so we looking at crowds now in racing games? ok...

been playing forza 5 since launch and never once even seen a crowd - it's not the focus, you should be driving.

Angels3785796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

Yeah.... Play station is doing driveclub a diservice to its visuals.... Forza doesn't touch it.

at least when Microsoft stole the Killzone shadow fall screens it helped because it looked gorgeous!

xICHIGOx796d ago

Yes they only need to dowgrade the gfx just like turn10 and the game can look like a ps3 game with better texture and 60fps, like forza 5.

Bundi796d ago

Remove all the cars and add a million trees.Heaven knows we need more trees!

DigitalRaptor796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

Ah Bundie, your trolling knows no ends, and for it the point whooshes right over your head.

DriveClub's tracks have unprecedented detail. Quite literally more than any other racing game ever produced. The standard has been set in that regard. It's a massive step above Forza's environments. Even the cars are a lot more detailed than in F5.

So, for a social arcade racer, 50 cars is an established standard. I'd expect you to think the same for other arcade racers like Blur, PGR, Burnout, NFS and MotorStorm - if you're gonna criticise DriveClub for the same thing.

For a sim racer, Forza 5 doesn't even come close to the standard. It was downgraded and people didn't even know about it until they bought it.

On the flip side, we get a delay, but an upgrade for DriveClub. An absolutely significant upgrade with a staggering amount of detail on both environmental detail and vehicle modelling which adds to an overall, more immersive and thrilling racing game. Which is all about racing your friends, not managing a garage of so many cars you will never drive them all in the capacity that this game demands.

truefan1796d ago

Well at least they know what the premier racing game is. Drive Club has had the worst launch in gaming history, 2 delays, ps+ dilemma, and now they show their Rivals racing game.

MysticStrummer796d ago

Yeah why would they want to show a game with lesser visuals, even if it wasn't on a competing console? A blunder indeed.

SoulSercher620796d ago

You must be referring to Gran Turismo - the REAL driving simulator.

Forza 5 was horrid.

DigitalRaptor796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

Oh yeah, they might as well start shipping the discs into boxes with the Forza 5 logo on, as if that will change the fact that the final product is a prime example of PS4's stronger hardware at play. That would be smart of them.

1) DriveClub hasn't launched yet, so how can it have the worst launch in gaming history, if it hasn't? o_0

2) I know you enjoy pulling statements out of your ass, but it has only been subject to ONE delay, and the game is so much better for it.

3) PS+ dilemma that they fixed almost immediately by listening to the fans as soon as they started complaining about it, not months or years down the line.

4) Microsoft showed Killzone footage for their console. How shocking...

G20WLY796d ago

Clearly this was an appalling mistake. If people see this they may not bother buying DC.

On the other hand, it could work in their favour; kind of like the old 'under promise, over deliver' technique - buyers are sure to be delighted if they were happy even with a Forza pic, lol!

@ truefan1:

nope. that prize goes to duke nukem forever.

delaying the game for polishing, and (likely) project morpheus integration is a positive.

miscommunication =/= dilemma

and one person operating a facebook page =/= sony as a whole. did it mean that MS knew what a premier FPS experience was when they posted an image of KZ: SF as one of their own games?

don't act like this is the first time anything like this has ever happened.

2pacalypsenow796d ago

But i dont want driveclub to dumb down the graphics to make it run in 1080p...

majiebeast796d ago

Lol and look last gen and have a crowds that looks like cardboard cut outs no thanks. Forza 5 is one of the worst looking next gen titles. Driveclub being compared to it should be an insult to Evolution.

FayZ_796d ago

funny how sony fangirls defend driveclub after so many delays, it's still 30fps... compare it to need for speed or other 30fps racers because it's not on forza's level.

using half the fps gives driveclub better visuals, ps4 hardware only gives about 30% more power compared to xbone, hence the resolution on some games are 30% higher eg. 792p vs 900p

iamnsuperman796d ago

It is times like this that show, the people who run the facebook and other social media sites are gibbons . These mistake shouldn't happen with first party software. A drive club trailer has just been released. It would make sense to use something from that

kneon796d ago

The same thing happened in reverse with Microsoft using Killzone Shadowfall images.

It seems knowledge of gaming is not a prerequisite for a job working in marketing for gaming products.

XiSasukeUchiha796d ago

It's just a market blunder so chill!

Dread796d ago

It is and you are absolutely right. However, if Ms had done this u know most people here at n4g would be calling ms on it big time and spreading hate as always.

GuruMeditation796d ago

Agreed; but two wrongs most certainly don't make a right. I hate seeing such bad sportsmanship from either camp.

SilentNegotiator796d ago (Edited 796d ago )

I just remember laughs and jabs when MS did it with KZ:SF, not "hate"

mrpsychoticstalker796d ago

Lmfao you mean. That person must have been pretty high, or secretly wanted the greatness of Forza.

Lowsnamebrand796d ago

Lol wasn't ms showing Killzone at one point in time this is still a face palm moment
