Journalists raised eyebrows at some obvious roughness at E3 last year, but Evolution has added several layers of shine since Sony decided to push the racer back. Now, visually at least, Driveclub is bloody amazing.
Why Driveclub Means More Games Should Be Perfect
Why Driveclub Means More Games Should Be Held Back: To Be Perfect.
Unless your EA, Activision or Ubisoft.
@LordStig: And those, along with Square Enix, are the ones who need to do it the most.
Lol not that long for that little content!!! How many cars again? Weather being launched with the game?? Don't think so. Beta already showing downgrade. Sorry to burst everyone's bubble but the game won't live up to anything.
@Elzer "Works fine.... Lmao... I'm guessing you have no clue how GODLIKE XBOX ONE'S SMARTGLASS operates compared to the psn app...." "Pretty bad graphics compared to Gamescom. If the downgrade is said to be true. Then Forza Horizon 2 Is looking much better. Open world game with better graphics and much more content. People underestimating the xbox one. There are still specs unspecified of the xbox one. PS4 is no where near 50% more powerful. Those that claim xbox one can't reach 1080p, architecture is much more complicated and tools are not even close to optimum standards. DX12 is a real deal. Phil spencer said it won't make much difference because xbox one already has DX12. Dev kits are now taking advantage of it little by little. 2015 E3!!!! I called it!" "Truly next gen? Watch closely and see the car bump into the bushes on the left.... Invisible wall?" "VINE!!!! If PS4 doesn't get this app then I consider XBOX ONE TO WIN THIS CONSOLE WAR just with this app alone lol!" "Ps4 fanboys having been waiting since launch for driveclub. They kept claiming that Driveclub was going to be better than forza 5. Now they'll be like it'll be better than forza horizon 2 lol. I'll have 2 racing games in my xbox one'a library while ps4 will have none. Might as well say Driveclub will be better than FORZA 6!!! If it isn't out by then hahahahahahahahahaha. Tell me I'm wrong! Because what I say is 100% FACT SON" "Everyone needs to stop complaining. Xbox One is giving you 2 racing titles in a 1 year's time frame. Launch and this upcoming fall. Driveclub has been hyped since day 1 for what? Only to draw attention away from forza 5. Sony has grabbed ignorant people's balls and tied them to their parallelogram consoles. You PS4 fanboys are so useless. Completely useless." Judging by your comment history, I don't think you'll have anything positive to say about the PlayStation 4, DriveClub, or anything Sony creates or produces as it relates to gaming. Perhaps misery does love company. Maybe you should clone yourself.
LMAO! This is garbage! Drive Club should experience another delay! LMAO! @ Drive Club! Let's see... 1080p "30fps", after talking all that s*** about the 1080p 60fps Forza Motorsport 5! ONE FEATURE; Clubs: frigging 6, and Forza Horizon 2 has 1,000. No Weather at launch! WTF? DLC Weather?, months later...LMFAO with this bs! And...50 Cars! You Must Be Kidding! And PS4 fans around the world scoffed at Turn 10 for ONLY having 200+ Cars in Forza Motorsport 5? And, Drive Club is Linear, with Invisible Walls! All this for $60. This is a joke.
"Why Driveclub Means More Games Should Be Delayed" I'd say more like don't announce a game until you know for sure when it will be completed at the quality you set it out to be.
How is that even possible? Do you know how much work goes into a game, how many variables there are and how much can go wrong over the course of two or three years? Can you say for sure what you'll be doing this time in a year or even in a month? I'm constantly surprised that any game maker announces a game for an exact day in 12 to 18 months and then manages to hit that. Obviously they jumped the gun and their ambition exceeded their reach, but I'm just glad they knew it wasnt up to scratch and still made the hard decision to delay it much to the chagrin of everyone, instead of rushing out an sub par product.
Why do we need to know about games so early? Dont announce a game till you're in the final 6 months of dev time.
Dudebro The final six months is when delays often take place, as that's when the disparate pieces begin to come together and the developer is finally able to see something resembling a finished product. The situation you and the others are imagining, in which games aren't announced until release is certain, is completely unrealistic. Delays can occur weeks before a game is expected to go gold.
I completely agree! Publishers are making us all look like fools lately. I always think of Watch Dogs with stuff like this. That first sentence is funny too. I wouldn't call half these jokers "journalists".
company's seem to think its ok to release half finished games with the now all to common day one patch that more often than not makes the game even worse.
None of my Sega, snes, n64, PlayStation one or ps2, gameboys, neogeos, had day one updates or many "high end/AAA" games were broken out of the gates. I was a much happier consumer of games back then. Now half the time I'm just bummed even thinking about games like the last guardian, duke nukem forever(which I truly genuinely hoped didn't suck but did), ffxv or versus 13 or whatever they are calling it now, or every other game that's been delayed a year or more. Delays suck the life out of anticipation. I'm no longer excited for tlg, ffxv, so on and so forth I've waited to long for nothing. As far as patches go, just give us a finished product and a realistic date. Hell, give me an outrageous date and then surprise me and release it early.
All games are getting delayed this year though
delayed and isn't 60fps for a racing game. It good idea. I think not.
Delayed and looks incredible and plays incredibly.
Not every game needs to be 60fps and DriveClub proves it.
The disagree is strong with this one.
Actually you might be surprised how many racing games over the years on the consoles are 30fps vs 60fps. You might want to do a little homework before spouting off next time. 1 of my favorite series of all time is Project Gotham Racing (30fps). 2 other great racing games - Sega Rally Rev and Rallisport Challenge were 30fps. Forza Horizon 2 which is about to be released in a couple weeks is 30fps as was the original. Usually only pure arcade titles or sim racers are 60fps. 30fps is fine for a racing game if it's stable / locked in. I have yet to see any videos or information of Drive Club being any but stable.
Good point about the 30fps making racing games stable, Need For Speed Rivals is 30fps and the game races and plays great.
It being delayed has actually made me more willing to buy. At least after trying on PS+ for a few hours or days. So many games coming out this fall it's hard to choose as I simply don't think I can afford all I want day 1. But I don't have a racer yet and all this time spent making Driveclub everything it can be is intriguing. I feel like most launch games (multiplayer) although complete and playable have really been hitting their best marks in recent months/weeks with all their updates and additions. Driveclub seems ahead of the curve, they used the time to get it worked out ahead of time. I expect updates after release to just be tweaking and icing on the cake rather than finishing what couldn't be done in time for a rushed release.
I am already bored of this game and it isn't even out yet. At least with games like Witcher III it is an exciting game to wait for.. but DriveClub, nah.
When were you ever excited for DC?
No, games just shouldn't be given release dates until they're truly near completion. With that said, bring on October 7th!
This read is retarded. There has been too much overload of delays this year. I've been really disappointed to see so many games I wanted to play being pushed back to 2015. I'm all for devs pushing out a complete game but maybe they need to wait a littlet longer to announce release dates.
Let the Microsoft cry babies have their say... On October 7th, i'll be thinking of them all and laughing while playing this; http://static3.gamespot.com... http://giant.gfycat.com/Hid... https://0b0ed7870df2e723fed... http://communityteam.softwa... http://www.zing.cz/gamefile... http://www.gamespot.com/api...
