Rumour:No Replays in Driveclub?

It seems that a few hours is circulating on our forum news concerning the new arcade racing developed by Evolution Studios and Sony's upcoming, or Driveclub. (Driveclub, PS4)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 24

They better have replays. If not this game is just barebones.
DonDon  +   541d ago
No wheel support, no weather, 30 fps, and no replays? Hmmm...I think I'll play the "free" version but will wait for reviews before buying the full game. Or just wait for next Gran Turismo.
Hk85karlsson  +   541d ago
They work with Thrustmaster (T80/T300) so there's some wheel suppport.
Weather will be implemented day 1/soon after.

I sit back and enjoy replays, changing cameras, listening to music and pausing during cool events. Dirt 2 was fantastic for the day, also the original Horizon from the Forza series was spot on, and gt6 too.

No wheel support?
Thrustmaster T80, T300 and T500RS. That's 3 wheels and 2 of them are fantastic FFB wheels.

oh boo hoo no replays. the game still looks and runs better then Forza 5 or Forza Horzion 2. It has dynamic weather, social clubs, etc. graphics look outstanding. Boo hoo about the replays it will still be a great racing game this generation.

Oh boo hoo games need content and features also not just graphics. /s
DonDon  +   540d ago
What does MS's games have to do with it? All games stand on their own two feet. I don't own an Xbone nor do I ever want one, so I don't care what their games offer in comparison. A basic theater mode missing is a bit of a surprise to me.
thorstein  +   541d ago
But there are replay videos that show the game with replays. Here is a picture of the UI with the word REPLAY.

Maybe we shouldn't approve every BS article that claims some silly rumor.
iamnsuperman  +   541d ago
Would be a bit unusal since a big part of the PS4 is about sharing your gameplay.
kneon  +   541d ago
It does seem strange, though personally I don't care as I never watch replays.
iamnsuperman  +   541d ago
Nor do I but then again I don't get Racing games of this nature. I guess, if true, they thought the share feature could function in the same way. But they still need it (save locally and upload a collection/make a montage) than just hitting the share button

Technically you do not need replays as the share button has it covered.
DonDon  +   541d ago
Share button cannot give u multiple angles. It's like the rumor that says that theatre mode in COD Advanced Warfare is removed: it kinda sucks because u can't rewatch game from other people's POV to see why they play so good. At least it might reduce lag though...

Bennibop  +   541d ago
We already know there is a photo mode in/coming to the game which would make more sense in the replays so will have to wait and see.
jronj  +   541d ago
Hit the share button...
Software_Lover  +   541d ago
for the entire game?
Torque_CS_Lewith  +   541d ago
More like flip the defense switch.
This is inexcusable, they spent so much time making million trees tracks and butterflies and moths but the racing and club aspects of this game seem so barebones!
LordMaim  +   541d ago
Why are you so outraged? You'll never play it anyhow, judging by your comment history.
DOMination-  +   541d ago
The devs clearly forgot halfway through that they were making a racing game. I've said a few times on here that the actual driving looks average and no amount of next gen clouds or stars in the sky will cover over that. It looks absolutely STUNNING but if the core racing aspect isn't up to scratch reviews will tear it apart
Baka-akaB  +   541d ago
You dont even know yet if it's true and you're already outraged ...
Torque_CS_Lewith  +   540d ago
Outraged? Not sure where you are getting outrage from here.
Yes I'm an Xbox fan first before any other brand but I also play on PS consoles. Even if I didn't though, barebones game is barebones.
italiangamer  +   541d ago
Some time ago I watched a video where they ve shown all the different replay techniques, I just cant seem to find it.
cruzngta  +   541d ago
First ... patched in weather and now maybe no replays??? WTF Evolution? Yeah the game looks sick but dont gimp it on features if thats what it takes to make it look like it does. I want to play and enjoy the game for what it is worth not just look at the cars and scenery and say 'wow'.
iamnsuperman  +   541d ago
Yer replays aren't a resource hog (except for envelopment time) and patched in features are not that big of a deal as long as they don't come along time after launch

I wish DC has replay because you can use it to learn from your mistakes.

I also don't like how DC looks when one finishes their race.
its shows a simple camera view footage of ones car and fireworks in the skies at the finish line, while FH2 shows f-14 flying pass by and people standing around at the finish line.

DC race https://www.youtube.com/wat...

FH2 race https://www.youtube.com/wat...

FH2's finishing race scenes feel more rewarding to me.

Isn't that exactly what the share button and share Factory are for?
Ripsta7th  +   540d ago
Nope. With replay you can change the angle and go from 1st person view to landscape
Brandon_2535  +   541d ago
Something about this post screams "click-bait" to me. They don't have any valid proof of anyone saying there won't be any replay system. The only provided "proof" is a supposed Tweet, which is just a screen grab. The screen grab itself looks edited to me, but that doesn't even matter because there's no information on the Tweet itself. It simply says something won't be available at launch. There's no question, just an answer. The Twitter account that asked the question has also set their account to private and you aren't able to view their Tweets.

It's probably fake, so just relax. They are including a really awesome photo mode, so I'm pretty sure they'll also include replays.
Spotie  +   540d ago
It was made for the purpose of roping in Torque and DonDon above.

Seems like it worked.

Let's overreact about a rumor that, based on what we've already seen, doesn't seem likely, let alone true.
italiangamer  +   541d ago
On NeoGAF some time ago they posted these screens from the UI concept and it shows the REPLAY function, take a look:

Yeah i saw that too this rumor might be fake
HanzoHattori  +   541d ago
Share Factory? The "Share" button on the DS4 controller? Photo Mode? In game replay is obsolete on the Playstation 4.
italiangamer  +   541d ago
This is what I was talking about, here are the techniques used by Driveclub and by what I read they seem to be made for replays. Please use google translate:

And by the way if you look at Paul Rustchynsky tweet, it says "2 sett." which in italian means 2 WEEKS...how is it possible to answer a question about gamescom footage of THIS WEEK with a tweet posted TWO WEEKS AGO?! This "news" is 100% FAKE.
jhoward585  +   541d ago
I changed my mind....

I don't care if Evolutions don't add replay to DC. I just want everything to be quick. Loading tracks, getting back in the race, etc. So if adding replay to DC takes that away then I don't want replay in DC.

There WILL be replays.
Illusive_Man  +   541d ago
Seems like it will be the Ryse of Club Racers.
Baka-akaB  +   541d ago
Guys Stop saying "share share share" . It's nice , awesome even , but you only display what you see with it . Unless you feel like a cameraman and switch angle constantly (and miserably crash the car) you wont get the cinematic feel and angles some seek from replays .

I'm just not alarmed by some BS google translation rumor . Especially when i do remember some earlier details about replays
MCTJim  +   541d ago
This will be a rumor until the Dev's themselves confirm it. No need for getting your panties in a wad....yet
Dlacy13g  +   541d ago
More than anything... all these features that are missing, limited or coming after launch tells you one thing. This game was utter rubbish back last year in November when it was supposed to launch.
rebeljoe14  +   540d ago
Xbots: No replay, its the worst
Ponies: Whatever its still better than Forza, piece of shit game
PC Aholes: Hahaha console peasants because we're such douche bags with oversized egos.
Me: Whatever never cared much for replays just play the game and have fun.
CorruptBoyd  +   540d ago
what do they mean by replay? Can someone explain?
Adolph Fitler  +   537d ago
I really couldn't care less about replays.. I mean, I have TOO many games to play on PS3, PS4, 360, & Wii-U, to be wasting that gaming time on watching sh1t I've already done 100 times before.
This would in NO WAY, affect my choice to get a game, & basically, I know replays in racers are important & useful to some gamers, & I would hope that it does have the feature for fellow gamers, that do actually rely on it, but it still wouldn't be the deal breaker for me.. I do hope, for the sake of this just becoming more anti-Sony fodder, by fanboys, as well as a blow to many gamers that actually use the feature often.

I believe racers & shooters NEED to have AS MANY features, modes, tracks, levels, arena's, cars, weapons. etc, etc as possible. In such crowded genre's, I believe it is imperative to throw in as much as possible, as long as quality & fun are not affected, to set your game apart, & differentiate themselves from ALL the other "me too-ers", avalanching down there genres mountain.
I want 4 player split screen, online modes GALORE, bots, a LONG A$$ single player campaign, replays, voice chat, & EVERY DAMNWELL possible addition & possible revolutionary game mode, gameplay enhancement, etc, that they can squeeze into the game, without compromising quality.
