The promising racer from Evolution Studios might end up being the elite title of the month. Don't forget that most huge games are in November now.
It'll have to fight with Sunset Overdrive for that title And that's a very tough battle
Anyway, it's a great month for both consoles
Most importantly, it'll be a good month for gamers on both sides of the fence. Sunset Overdrive and Drive Club? Sign me up!
Pretty sure Sunset Overdrive will beat it out. It'll be in competition with Alien and Evil Within though. Sunset Overdrive will appeal to a wider audience and I bet scores high 8 / low 9, and we will see these other 3 games somewhere in the 7 or 8 range. I think it's more fair and will be more interesting how it fairs against Forza Horizon 2's metacritic of 86. They are both racers only releasing about a week apart and that's a more fair comparison
@xblskull Whenever I see your predictions towards what game will triumph over the other, which in your case is always an xbone exclusive LOL! my reaction is normally.. "Uh huh.. yeah, okay bro, suuuuure... if you say soooooo"
@xblskull "Pretty sure Sunset Overdrive will beat it out." Maybe in your dreams. We don't give a toss about your BS biased opinions. So keep that garbage unto yourself.
@XBLSkull: i didn't expect less from a blind fanboy like you. DriveClub is a great deal for racing fans.. X1-only owners will have SO this month. In the end everyone wins..
Sorry guys but the fact is Sunset Overdrive or Evil Within should take home that title.
Sunset Overdrive may outsell DriveClub but only because Driveclub is available to download free (minus some tracks and cars) and many will be trying that first. Having said that with the numbers the PS4 is doing compared to the xone, the obvious quality of Driveclub has every chance of doing big numbers
@amiga-man: maybe but it will for sure sell consoles and even lots of PS+ subscriptions. Get PS+ get DriveClub! Pretty smart marketing
I like how people are using FH2's meta number instead of Forza 5's to go up against Drive Club, lol. People are so against comparing the two games until it comes to meta scores right? I thought an open world racer shouldn't be compared to a track racer... sheesh
If, IF Drive Club beats Sunset overdrive it'll be "Well PS gamers got it free from Plus so that's why it did better". I plan to download DC.
Are you guys kidding me. Driveclub is THE racing game to beat this year and the fact there is NO racing game available on the PS4 will make this the top seller in October. I would have my doubts if Destiny would have launched in the same month - but since that's not the case, there is no competition. Racing games are huge on the PS brand - mine is already downloading. I can't wait for this game. Don't make me laugh bringing up Sunset Overdrive into this discussion. A new brand who nobody heard of on a console nobody's buying...nope. Not gonna happen.
Tbh I'm a huge ps4 fan but I'd prefer sunset overdrive any day over a racing game. Good thing is drive club is free :D
True, but as a long time PlayStation Gamer, Insomniac, seems to be on a downward trend, I mean it seems like Sony hasn't even tried to buy them because they're lacking positive critical reception for all of their games (Ratchet and clank, Outernaughts, Fuse, and Resistance 2-3), hopefully this Sunset Overdrive IP bucks the trend.
Sony hasn't tried to buy anything with the exception of gaikai because they don't have the money. They are doing good not to close studios at the moment.
Resistence 3 was rated highly, and IMO was the best one in the series and an overall excellent expirience
Yeah, to this day Resistance 3 and Halo are the only true advocates for console shooting IMO (and maybe Goldeneye 64, but I was too young to judge how good it actually was). They are just a blast to play and I'm sure R3, just like Halo, will still be fun and have relevant gameplay in 10 years time.
tinynuggins Yet they spend money on exclusive games such as Bloodborne, The Order, Driveclub, another Uncharted etc. As well as employing again at Suckerpunch for a new title. Stop using that "no money" rubbish. Microsoft closed it's own studios which looks way worse, but that wasn't because they had no money lol. The simple fact is that Sunset is an Xbox One exclusive because like Tomb Raider and Titanfall, Microsoft threw a hell of a lot of money for it. Sony just doesn't do business like that as it really doesn't pay off.
Remember the Resistance 3 multiplayer? I don't...
I love Ratchet and Clank games and i finished ALL of them (except Q-force and A4O) and everytime it's a great experience cause i love that series. Resistance on the other hand didnt really appeal to me, and neither did the very bad Fuse. right now to me Insomniac Games = Ratchet games (if i put Spyro aside). Sunset seems to be a fun game, but not worth investing on x1 only for that game.
Don't forget Bayonetta 2.
I guess everyone is just upset that their precious PS4 has less games than the Wii U.
"Hey guys! Don't forget the Wii U" lmao
^lol You can't seriously believe the PS4 has less games than the Wii U! :^/ DC shaped up well after the huge delay. Seems fresh; I'm hopeful for a damn good racer. Saw the night time crash someone filmed and it filled me with adrenaline! Imagine with Morpheus! o_O
It would be the best game coming if it was next gen.
SSOD? Lmao! Try harder next time.
"Driveclub Could Be The Best Game Released In October" No.
It does look great but I'm hoping Evil Within and Borderlands claim that prize.
theres nearly zero hype about SSOD. Also theres much less pre-orders for SSOD. If anything, I would rather put Lords of the Fallen against instead.
What an awfully badly written article too.
Driveclub will sell better than Sunset Overdrive and Not going to compare two games that are completely different, know point.
its quite funny how if anyone even mentions that something might do better than DC, its automatically disagreed with by all the rabid fanboys on this site. just shows how insecure they really are.
Nah Samurai Warriors 4 will own both DC and SSOD. Its gettings 10s across the board.
"could be" although from a ps fanboy site that opinion really holds no merit.
Careful now, don't be throwing stones in your glass house! ;^P It looks great. Hopefully it will BE great and - more importantly - good fun!
Every site is a "ps fanboy" site if it doesn't conform to your xbox fanboy ideology.
That's a bold statement. There's a lot of games releasing this month, mostly new IP so lots of unknowns in there.
The Evil Within gets my vote, speaking as an uniformed voter (haven't played), but I'll be buying DC along with TEW.
Yeah man I agree. I'm looking forward to Driveclub too, but be honest...when was the last time anyone said "So and so racer was my goty"? I say goty because if it were to be the best game this month it would have to beat some goty contenders.
The graphics are amazing but the gameplay don't look that good or fun and the content is lacking bad. No replay, weather, or photo mode at launch even after a year delay.
ya that really leaves me scratching my head. do they have a small studio or something? having a year delay and not have those features at launch doesn't make any sense.
I have no idea why people are disagreeing with you. On top of the very light car list, it will be missing those things day 1 despite being delayed for 11 months.
perfectly reasonable question and still bombarded with disagrees. Welcome to N4G
Features that arent in any other game that are getting patched in for free and youre complaining. Okay.
@SuperBlunt FH2 has weather, replays, and photo mode day one all without a delay. So I fail to see what you're talking about.
GT5, a last gen game, says hi.
With the fully dynamic aspect and with that precision, yes, they are. This has never been done before.
i don't see how you can say bad things about content and gameplay, the game has yet to release and the latest preview are very promising. One quote says "It looks good, it plays better". To me it seems you're just trolling..
The_Infected has a point when you look at the games in the racing gore that is out this year. Horizon 2, the crew, Project CARS and even Mario kart have more content than Driver Club. When this game was 1st shown off last year I was really excited about it but since then its kind of felt like the original motor storm where it was hyped up to be the game that would set the mark but failed to do so. The graphics do look very nice but the lack of content and the videos I've seen so far don't look like the game has as much to offer as the others apart from its looks and looks don't make a game. Don't think I'm sagging the game off as I am not I always play a game for my self before I decided if the game is for me or not and it will be the same with Driver Club but due to what I've seen over the last 12 months DC is not high on my list of games to rush out and buy. The good news is there is not long until the game is out now and people can get there hands on it and judge for them self's. This game will not be for anyone just like any other game and remember this before saying someone is trolling
again, you and i don't really know how much content DC has, and criticize it before release is either misinformation or trolling. You could say that it hasn't many cars, ok, but 55 tracks is A LOT. and we don't know how many challenges are in the game.. And it's Driveclub, not Driverclub...
in most racing games the environments are really close to each other, so 5 completely different environments are a benefit, not a con. and ultimately racing games are about tracks and cars, you can't really say that because of environments the tracks look the same...
lol.... the answer is Bayonetta 2.
The evil within says hi.
Hahaha this is pretty funny theres a reason sony is giving half the game away for free on release cause they do not have high hopes for it and they are right seeing is how this game only has 50 cars even with the extra year of development
I know huh? Kinda like Microsoft is still giving away Forza 5. They've given away enough to report 1.5 million in worldwide Forza 5 sales. Or maybe that's a shipped or shifted number you know Microsoft and how they report sales hahahaha!
When did MS start giving away Forza 5? You mean for that one weekend?
Don't you people have anything better to do than to come in DC articles and bash it. Get a life troll. "Sony is giving half the game away for free" Maybe get your facts straight before you post BS next time.
If your going to troll sort yourself out. The ps+ version has 10 cars, that's a fifth of the final game, it has one country, that's 1 out of 5 . I don't understand people's eagerness to ditch the game as I was in the beta and quite frankly thought it was brilliant, so imagine there will be some humble pie eating as the racing is as addictive as anything. As for your comment, half usually means half of what the final number, simple maths, half of 50 is 25.
Lots of competition. The Evil Within, Sunset Overdrive, Bayonetta 2, Forza Horizon 2, and a few others. Driveclub might be though. I'm reading great reviews from people who got it early. I'm getting all the games I listed, btw. Such a good month!
I would say Sleeping Dogs is.
With all the great stuff out this month, I don't why I want to play sleeping dogs again. More than anything.
more pork buns
Sleeping dogs is flat out garbage.
I think I smell a troll lol. Say what you want about Sleeping Dogs but it still has the greatest combat mechanics out of any open world game to date.
It could also be the worst... Or somewhere in the middle... Isn't pondering fun?!? =D
I'm guessing Sunset Overdrive will be more fun, but Driveclub will most likely be the best looking game released in October. Can't wait to get both.
Lords of the Fallen > Game will surprise a lot of people
It looks like it is copying dark souls pretty hard, but thats ok because i love dark souls.
