It'll have to fight with Sunset Overdrive for that title

And that's a very tough battle

sobotz1203d ago

Anyway, it's a great month for both consoles

thereapersson1203d ago

Most importantly, it'll be a good month for gamers on both sides of the fence. Sunset Overdrive and Drive Club? Sign me up!

XBLSkull1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

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..

mikeslemonade1202d ago

Sorry guys but the fact is Sunset Overdrive or Evil Within should take home that title.

amiga-man1202d ago

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

bouzebbal1202d ago

@amiga-man:
maybe but it will for sure sell consoles and even lots of PS+ subscriptions. Get PS+ get DriveClub! Pretty smart marketing

gootimes1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

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

Kidmyst1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

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.

Ju1200d ago

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

krouse931203d ago

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.

tinynuggins1203d ago

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.

Derekvinyard131203d ago

Resistence 3 was rated highly, and IMO was the best one in the series and an overall excellent expirience

opoikl1202d ago

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.

DeadlyOreo1202d ago

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.

Knushwood Butt1202d ago

Remember the Resistance 3 multiplayer?

I don't...

bouzebbal1202d ago

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.

TheWackyMan1202d ago

I guess everyone is just upset that their precious PS4 has less games than the Wii U.

EmptySkyForm1202d ago

"Hey guys! Don't forget the Wii U" lmao

G20WLY1202d ago

^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

ricochetmg1201d ago

It would be the best game coming if it was next gen.

SSOD? Lmao! Try harder next time.

lelo2play1202d ago

"Driveclub Could Be The Best Game Released In October"

No.

DeadlyOreo1202d ago

It does look great but I'm hoping Evil Within and Borderlands claim that prize.

Magicite1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

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.

KirbysDump1202d ago

What an awfully badly written article too.

hello121202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

Driveclub will sell better than Sunset Overdrive and Not going to compare two games that are completely different, know point.

marlinfan101202d ago

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.

rebeljoe141202d ago

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.

G20WLY1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

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!

ScaryMonkey1202d ago

Every site is a "ps fanboy" site if it doesn't conform to your xbox fanboy ideology.

KiwiViper851203d ago

That's a bold statement. There's a lot of games releasing this month, mostly new IP so lots of unknowns in there.

MysticStrummer1203d ago

The Evil Within gets my vote, speaking as an uniformed voter (haven't played), but I'll be buying DC along with TEW.

TheFutureIsBlue1203d ago

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.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

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.

qwerty6761203d ago

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.

InTheLab1203d ago

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.

Yetter1203d ago

perfectly reasonable question and still bombarded with disagrees. Welcome to N4G

SuperBlunt1203d ago

Features that arent in any other game that are getting patched in for free and youre complaining. Okay.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1203d ago

@SuperBlunt

FH2 has weather, replays, and photo mode day one all without a delay. So I fail to see what you're talking about.

Imalwaysright1203d ago

GT5, a last gen game, says hi.

Ju1200d ago

With the fully dynamic aspect and with that precision, yes, they are. This has never been done before.

Caffo011202d ago

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..

mcstorm1202d ago

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

Caffo011202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

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...

1202d ago
Caffo011201d ago

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...
