Although specifics weren’t given about what’s gone wrong, here’s Sony’s message about the games:
Why soo many issues today damn it. Gonna go watch porn.
This sucks I can't play online. Must be because it's also the free day for plus too.
I've been checking for hours. My cart has all the free games but I'm missing DC. Waiting for it before I check out so it will be waiting for me at home. I can't believe all these issues.
I think it's because too much internet bandwidth is being taken up by people who watch porn...just speculation of course.:)
Sorry, I've logged off now. Please try again :/
Quit trying to stream 4K resolution porn dude!
Rustchynsky tweeted this to me last week. What a joke. The PS+ version didn't come out until late last night I believe. "Paul Rustchynsky @Rushy33 Sep 29 @XanderZane There is no demo, but there is the PS+ Edition which will be available at launch." Yes Paul it is a DEMO. There's only 10 cars and 11 tracks. Just because all the modes and online is there doesn't mean it's a complete game. The online part were having a ton of issues on day one.
Well it's not like you'll ever have a girlfriend, so go for it.
Been downloading 2k15 fooooorrrrever now!
its 40 gigs...it suppose to take a long time ;-) except ofcource if you have a descent pc then it takes 3 hours to d/l....this time pc version is da best
as a pc user i would expect you to have the common sense to realize that its the internet speed that determines how fast the game gets downloaded
Does any one know how to download the ps plus edition of Driveclub? I can download Spelunky but Driveclub isn't available
Well soon as I bought it for 10% discount $49 it started downloading instantly.... Yes I too wanted to try it before I bought it, but then I got too impatient, so this is for those wondering will they get it now if they buy it, YES --> it will start downloading right now.. kinda sucks that Sony didn't have the Free Plus version ready when the store updated, but whatever I got it coming in now --that's all that matters.. Game Looks Amazing... wow .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
@CrazyGlues, where's the 10% discount driveclub? LOL
At the disagrees... OMG! why are y'all flaming me... I didn't lie to you.. @MilyMike it was right there, when I wrote the first post ask Heavenly Snipes, I didn't lie to you guys, I bought it right then... They took it down because it was the Plus version, it looks like what happened was they put the plus version in the 10pecent discount section... so it's down now, because they are trying to fix it.. (maybe it was suppose to go away once the game released, and they messed up, it is a pre-order discount) I just went ahead and bought that because I couldn't find the Plus version, and I wanted to play now... ------------------------ So please people stop hating on me, I don't work at PSN --> I don't know why the 10percent off pre-order $49 full version is now down, I didn't lie to you, I bought it exactly when I wrote it. Sorry if it's gone now but I didn't lie to you. I'm playing the game right now... if you want I'll make a video? from game/share..
Yeah when I checked again a couple minutes ago if you click on the driveclub icon in the free ps plus games list it just directs you to the discount page where you can get the game for $49.99
@HeavenlySnipes thank you for confirming what I said about the discount being there, I don't know why people thought I would make that up... Bubble for you my friend.. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
What the hell is happening over here? I'm in Asia and had downloaded the PS+ version last night. Played for 2 hours and was impressed, upgraded to the full version with bonuses. I played for another 2 hours but the only problem was I can connect to the DC server. I'm gonna try again after this.
@badz149 Yeah hope they get it fixed soon, they talked about that on there Facebook page... it's says.. --> #DRIVECLUB is available from today in America and the global servers are live for online play! We are aware however that many players are receiving an error message indicating 'there is a fault with your internet connection' and we are investigating what appears to be a wider server issue behind this problem. It's not affecting everybody and the game will keep trying to connect to the server automatically, so you don't need to do anything with the game (like re-install or restart over and over) to establish connectivity. Please let us know your experience with the game so far if you're already playing - and please tag friends if they're having the same problem so that they know we are working on it. We will update you as soon as we know more about this.
There was no PSPlus version for the first 2 days. It just got put up by Sony last night I believe. It wasn't available on Monday or early Tuesday. You could only get the game at $49.99 BEFORE the game launched after midnight on Monday morning. After that time, the price went up to $59.99. You got $10 off for preordering it basically. Whatever the case, the game is an unfinished mess. Evolution Studio got a whole extra year to improve the game add weather/phote mode and improve the A.I. and driving on the game and it seems they did absolutely nothing. The game has a 72 score on Metacritics and a User's score of 6.1. Seems gamers hate the game more then the professional reviewers.
THIS is exactly what they want to happen. Sony is starting to become a tad bit deceitful with PSN.
I suspect they are working on it because when you go into the $60 version it says the title is not available.
yeah it looks like they put the plus version under the 10% discount full version of the game.. Epic Fail.. I can play but the servers are down. So it can't connect to the driveclub servers.. But the game feels good so far. Just doing single player campaign. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
Where is this ps+ going too? More downtime than a cheap hooker! XBox live too, they've had our money for over 10 years!
Considering the games they give you I doubt much of the PS+ money ends up being funnelled into data centres. Negotiating deals with the publishers is probably quite expensive in itself.
Online stability should be the priority. The games I get for free are a nice bonus, but they aren't what I pay for
I'm not saying it shouldn't. It's in their interest to provide a stable service, irrespective of whether consumers are directly paying into that or not. They provide a store front, a platform to sell content, so it's in their interest that there store is as good as it can be. But that wasn't the point, I wasn't trying to justify downtime, just to explain where most of the PS+ money probably goes.
the sad thing is PSN ran a lot better on PS3 than PS4. i wish Soony would invest in their online service. they are only making themselves look bad from all the new PlayStation owners. keep pushing them and they will go back to Xbox once Halo releases.
Yeah right I get on my PS3 to download games and just the store loading is hell.
Nobody's going back to the losing team. You are delusional. If I leave gaming it won't because a free game wasn't available the minute I wanted it. Get real dude.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Wouldn't a cheap hooker have less downtime? :P @Chrono I've been thinking that this whole gen. Probably why last month was so low on games because Sony needs to start using money to beef up the network
One game's server for a few hours and two mistakes on the PS store isn't much of "downtime"
I guess the Driveclub (and NBA?) servers are down, too; my bad. I thought it was just Destiny's servers. I'm just sick of people acting like the entirety of PSN is down every time Destiny's servers go down. I wouldn't know, though, since the PS+ version is still not on the store, SONY >:(
PSN is some trash right now they need to get their stuff together. Ok I'm done venting. But I can't find the PS+ edition and my friends list takes forever to load. And I reeeally wanna play DriveClub.
PSN is becoming a major pain. First Driveclub didn't have a buy button so couldn't get it. Finally fixed now the PS+ version is missing. Now the friends list isn't working or painfully slow. Sony really needs to get their shit together!
1st world problems
its ridiculous. yesterday i was playing diablo on my ps4 and i got a pop up that said message received. it was from one of my friends who was also on the ps4.i check my messages and nothing is there. i turn on my ps3 its there. switch back to my ps4 and its still not there. w t f
The only way Sony can get a pass on this one is if 2.0 drops tonight
i bet u its 2.0 update tonite but today is major psn update servers r being hammered by aliens racing spasbos hoop addicts then theres other clan the weekly deals poverty level gamers like me. so if u fit into all those categorys then yea we just ddos psn by all us loggin to to buy stuff redeem preorder content etc
I don't really complain at all but.... this is so annoying! I can't view my friends list or find the PS+ version of driveclub.
Too many issues for a powerful PS4 hardware with it's racing game.. Oh well..
Its those 10 million + users trying to log in
Feel bad u sony dudes this is becoming common.
I am a PS+ user. I preordered DriveCLub about 3 weeks ago and it came out at about 3o' clock in the morning. I finally got on the game, but once I got on, the servers were down. I was tired, so I decided to go to bed. SO I wake up today, and guess what? DriveClub servers are still down. I play SinglePlayer a bit then decide to go to the home menu. Now, under the DriveClub icon, (Where overview and related items are found), it gives me the option to buy the $60 dollar version and the $40 version of the game. This was strange because I preordered the $40 PS+ version. I can still play the full game, except it says I haven't bought it. I also bought the season pass for the game, and it doesn't have that under related items. Someone please help, I'm confused out of my mind right now!
I'm telling you, I've been a PlayStation fan since the PS1 era. I bought the PS4 day one launch. I have tried and tried to be patient, to allow the PS4 to find it's legs so to speak. However the "honeymoon phase" with the PS4 is just about over for me and Sony had better start delivering on this damn "next gen" system. (Online) For starters, ever since PS Plus has been a requirement for online gaming, it seems like PSN has gotten worse. We're seeing so many more issues with PSN with online crashes, hacks, network issues, etc. Hell PSN on my PS3 NEVER had this many issues and that was it was free! (Games) The PS4 has been out nearly a year now. With the exception of Resogun and The Last of Us Remastered, not one PS4 exclusive has managed to live up to the hype. Killzone, Knack, Infamous SS, and now Driveclub. While all of them are decent, all of them failed to live up to the hype and anticipation. The only other exclusive we have for the rest of 2014 is Little Big Planet 3 which to me just looks like more of the same old same old. (Multimedia) Here we are almost a year later and still no MP3/CD support. No DLNA support. No YouTube support. No HBO Go. No custom folders. No custom themes or back grounds. Xbox One already has all this except for HBO GO and I guaran-damn-tee you X1 will get it before PS4 does.
It's sad to say, but you're right... :(
Actaully HBO go is already available for xboxlive, but hey don't be too upset, really none of these systems have lived up to the hype of this new generation. I have an xboxone and nothing has been ground breaking or amazing outside of not needing a remote and using my voice to do things. D4 and Forza Horizon has been good, but nothing to justify my purchase
I am impressed! the first honest XB gamer i've seen! Both console better deliver soon! it's to 2015, and the launch year is over. then? there is no more real excuses.
The only problem is most of the arguments you make against PS4 can be made against xbone as well. "While all of them are decent, all of them failed to live up to the hype and anticipation." Sounds a lot like Titanfall, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, etc. "which to me just looks like more of the same old same old." So kind of like the Halo remastered collection then. Online for PS4 hasn't been anywhere near what you're trying to make it out to be, try being realistic otherwise you just come off as a xbot fanboy. And xbone doesn't have all those extras you mentioned but nice try.
@ ScaryMonkey, I don't give a damn about the Xbone. We're not even talking about that console. My concern is in regards to the console I actually own and that is the PS4. You can't say "yeah well the X1 sucks too." That doesn't validate anything in regards to Sony's mishandling of the PS4.
come on dude as every online game you should stay out of it a couple of days so the major probs get ironed out,as a pc gamer im used to this crap (examples bf4,diablo 3,starcraft and so on) be patient its the first day, you tube app? you can use the browser its faster than the xo one,online? ps3 ? you remember the 1 month off right? as for dlna mp3s and shit yeah tough luck its a game console go to ps3 (don matrick style) wait for update 2.8 remember the ps3 day one fw 1.00 and ps3 fw 4.50 ...Sony rules just needs games and a wireless headset ps3 style
As a PC Gamer you're also not paying for a network service that's mandatory to play online. As for the multimedia features, yeah I guess I'm being unreasonable to expect my new NEXT GEN SYSTEM that's been out almost a year to have the same functionality as my old last gen system.
Wait aren't people paying to improve the PSN? Well I'll go and enjoy free, perfectly working Multiplayer now.
Only its not "free".
yeah stability should def be #1 priority above all else. especially now that you're paying for it. sony needs to invest a bit more on improving their online infrastructure but they'd rather spend it on vr and ps now instead.
My gripe is when i download the upgraded version it says 16gb en all of a sudden jumps to 2gb. Wtf I cant even download my preoder DLC binus shit either. WTF SONY will never pre order somethinf digitally from your shit store again!! God you idiots are unorganized.
i preordered the digital version from Gamestop , and got a DLC code , this morning i downnloaded the game , but what i noticed was so stages were missing , so when i highlighted them they started to begin downloading , what i think happens is you get the Free PS+ version then it finishes the download while playing the game
Nice so i still got a demo of a demo upgrade.
Seriously, why even release Drive Club if your missing extras like Replays, Dynamic Weather etc? Reviewers review the way you buy it on disc, day 1, so its lacking compared to Horizon 2. I think they would have been better off releasing this game when it was ready rather than trying to compete with Horizon. Q1 would have been better when not much else was out.
50 quid for a half finished game Sony really??? Would have been better off delaying it again rather than bringing it out to compete with the highly polished,features packed Forza horizons 2.Is it really for the gamers Andrew house???
Sony online Service is straight garbage man. I got the ps4 first cause i kinda fell into the hype with the hardware specs but going back to 360, it always seemed like Xbox Live was feature rich. It most likely had alot to do with the fact that Live has been a paid service for several years now so it would make sense that theres more money invested in their network. X1's Live service seems more stable. The one thing so annoying is PSN is always down. Is there scheduled maintenance every day. I know after the ridiculous month long blackout of psn a few years ago, they became more strict with network and did more security mainetenance.
If my mrs went down as much as psn I'd be a happy man
sony was never organised anyways...
