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.

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

@Destrania Jealous? Ooooookey dokey

Destrania  +   123d 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.

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.

Destrania  +   123d 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.

@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.

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
MRMagoo123  +   122d 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.
theshonen8899  +   122d 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.
ScareFactor  +   122d 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
Blaze929  +   122d 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.

Angels3785  +   123d 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!

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.
Bundi  +   123d ago
Remove all the cars and add a million trees.Heaven knows we need more trees!
DigitalRaptor  +   122d 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.

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.
MysticStrummer  +   123d 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.
SoulSercher620  +   123d ago
You must be referring to Gran Turismo - the REAL driving simulator.

Forza 5 was horrid.
DigitalRaptor  +   122d 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...

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!
ziggurcat  +   123d ago
@ 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.

But i dont want driveclub to dumb down the graphics to make it run in 1080p...
majiebeast  +   123d 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_  +   122d 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
iamnsuperman  +   123d 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
kneon  +   123d 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.

What drunks do these companies hire to run their FB pages?

"*hic* This looks like that game they told me to post pictures of. *hic*"
[right click, save]

Either that or they realized how many new viewers they get by having a silly publicized mistake. They probably get more people going "oh, PS has a FB page..." *click* than people being all that outraged.

Ha ha these kinds of things are funny. I remembering these happening MS's way back during the system launches. It's really not AS MUCH of the actually System Companies' fault (they are somewhat responsible of course), but it's usually some marketing company that hires people that aren't gamers. Either way, these are usually good for a laugh, but not really a big deal.
lfc_4eva  +   123d ago
Well its always best to show off your game looking its best ;-) [Joking]

That's what happens when you get non-gamers to do game marketing.

They probably just Googled "driving game" to find the images.

I agree its a small marketing mistake but when MS did something similar last year you would have thought the world ended with the amount of screaming the Sony Fanboys did on this site.

Maybe thats why is runs at a stuttering 30fps
CryofSilence  +   123d ago
Its environments and cars have unprecedented detail, only rivaled/matched by Project Cars. It is also a rock-solid 30 FPS. Yet another 1 bubble troll to ignore.

LOL this isn't a 3rd party putting out screens with the wrong version of the game . this is sony's big game for fall using screens from its direct competitor , this is almost as funny as trying to sell a driving game by saying it has over 1 million poly trees , which reminds me of selling COD based on fish AI .
DigitalRaptor  +   122d ago
So funny when Sony does it, but not funny when Microsoft tries to sell their console using a Killzone image from their direct competitor, I imagine? https://www.facebook.com/ph...

Trees vs. Fish now? Comparing how the trees that are a large part of what you are looking at when driving around a race track whilst playing the game, to fish that swim away from you in a tiny part of a single-player mission in CoD...?

And you didn't even get the claim right. It's 1 million trees, not "1 million poly trees". Such epic fail.

You trolls try too hard for such non-existent gain. THAT really is funny.
horndog  +   123d ago
It's a smart marketing move by Sony. You want to make a good impression on the power of the console and drive club doesn't cut it.
