Driveclub PS+ Edition Delayed?

Many are hoping to take Driveclub for a spin without committing to the full version, but it seems like that may not be an option.

Wow, Sony touted the free version of this SO much and now is hiding it?

LackTrue4K1140d ago

That's some bull 5hit!!! I did the same thing this morning!!

Was soooo looking forward to the game too!!

Sucks SONY, you just lost your self $60 bucks and with all its DLC.

blackbeld1140d ago

wooh chill down.... If you like the game so much then just buy the disk.

If you don't like the game anymore then you can stil sell it to a friend. There is no DRM so just chill.

GribbleGrunger1140d ago

LOL. Don't you just love Driveclub threads.

SonyWarrior1140d ago

i just knew this was going to happen it always does.......................... ............................... ............................... ............................... ........................... sony better not delay it until next month

The servers were having issues just after the digital download was unlocked. It would not make sense to release the whole community on the servers when even the people who bought it can't play. Without an online connection there's only half of the game so let them sort out the problems first, then you can complain.

from reddit:

Called customer support. Was on hold for quite a while (given the current situation). Rep confirmed that the PS+ edition will hit the store in about 1.5 hours. Rep also said that he has gotten many calls regarding this very predicament. Time will tell, but I'm just the messenger.

"LOL. Don't you just love Driveclub threads."

So if this was a thread on Forza Horison 2 you would be saying what exactly?

Bloodborn,
"The servers were having issues just after the digital download was unlocked. It would not make sense to release the whole community on the servers when even the people who bought it can't play. Without an online connection there's only half of the game so let them sort out the problems first, then you can complain."

So what your saying is much like the PS3 last generation anytime a big title came out the servers can't handle the load and crap out?. I hope Sony starts investing the Plus revenue into its online services really quickly.

ABizzel11140d ago

I've been waiting as well, and if true then this is the first big knock to Sony and the PS4 this gen. I understand you wanting to sell copies first since it's a multi-million dollar investment, but if it's delayed you should have let consumers know from the start that it would be delayed.

I can't get mad over something I'm going to get for free, but it's still shady regardless and in bad taste.

While I'm at it, it would be nice to get update 2.0 sooner than later. And the PS Store could use an update as well.

ballsohard20131140d ago

dont waste your time bro... the game is meh at best. If your a graphics whore, which i admit i am sometimes it might hold you over a bit but i can see people getting bored with this one real fast.

rxl2091140d ago

how did sony lose 60 dollars when you were obviously to cheap to buy it? and it only costs 50

Patrick_pk441140d ago

And this is the perfect example of an entitled child.

zero_gamer1140d ago

@Patrick_pk44

Well Sony did promise us PS+ subscribers the game, therefore we are "entitled" to it. So yeah, go ahead and insult away, but that doesn't change fact.

badz1491140d ago

Delayed? Where? I already downloaded mine and played it for couple of hours and already upgraded to the full version with discount and bonus cars. What the hell are you guys talking about?

ScaryMonkey1140d ago

What do you mean they lost $60 bucks? No one is stopping you from buying it, if you really had the intention to do so all you have to do is walk in the store and buy it. But maybe you're just looking for an excuse to gripe at Sony cause you figure it will turn people away from PS4, got news for you, hasn't worked thus far and wont anytime soon.

zerog1140d ago

There is no screw up, no delay. Apparently whoever wrote this stupid flame bait article should just give up their dream of being a journalist just like the rest of the stupid people and trolls on down this comment section. It was stated a couple weeks ago by sony that drive club launchs on the 7th BUT the free ps+ edition would come out the 8th. Stop being stupid people and don't believe everything you read on the internet that doesn't come from the official source because 99% of it is bs. It was on the offical ps blog not long ago and if you go there and search you'll be sure to find it that they said the plus version launchs on the 8th and if you think about it it makes sense, don't you think the people who actually bought the game should be able to get it first?

Condemnedman1139d ago

Sony on top of their game 😂

Perhaps they want to make as much money as possible on sales before they release this just in case.

nicksetzer11140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

O yea, now I remember that part of the pitch. "We will be releasing a PS+ version of driveclub at launch." "Unless sales aren't good or we just change our mind, then we will delay it so we can get as many sales as possible." Forgot that second part.

OT: Honestly I think the PS+ version of this game was too much of a promise and frankly, unecessary. Ps+ already offers plenty of value otherwise. That said, once you make a promise you shouldn't go back on it.

nX1140d ago

I can assure you that this is NOT the reason why it's not available. The PS+ version was visible for a few minutes but it was pulled, probably because of the reason I explained in my comment above.

KingWookiee1140d ago

@Bloodborn: Why are you on EVERY Driveclub article doing damage control? If the game is so great, shouldn't you be busy playing it? XD

nX1140d ago

^First of all it was not damage control, my assumption was spot on as you can read here:
https://www.facebook.com/dr...

Also I'm level 17/50 in the game and I would love to play but since the servers are down I'm rather waiting until that's fixed since the whole game revolves around online play and I want to play with my friends. Nice try trolling though.

jib1140d ago

from their fecebook.com page =

"In order to help all DRIVECLUB players who have the game already, we're holding back the PS Plus Edition and the My DRIVECLUB app to ease the load and traffic to the servers. This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we’ll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My DRIVECLUB app will be available to download. To our PS Plus fans, we're sorry you're having to wait longer to play, but we want to ensure that when you come on board, you get the best experience possible. Rest assured,"

.. which is BS

@GribbleGrunger

Yeah reading comments in DriveClub threads are like reading a good comedy/drama novel.

Septic1140d ago

Yeah and it's not just N4G. Even on NeoGaf the same drama ensues.

Travis37081140d ago

The PS+ version of Driveclub is tomorrow.

Mega241140d ago

its tomorrow already, and its not there...

memots1140d ago

This is one thing i am really pissed at.

ITs rare for me to spend the money on a release on day one. I should have bought the disc instead, Sony on this one you really failed.

Travis37081140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

.....

Good-Smurf1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

Weird considering it's the first thing they showed on the store page.
At least on Asian PS store of course.
Already have the game up and running but got stuck with 2 cars the game seems to have a problem download the rest of the cars and tracks probably high network traffic or just my slow connection or both.

NegativeCreep4271140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

*Xbot Circus Alert!!!*

More than 50 percent, easily, of the people commenting in here are people that do not even own a Playstation 4, let alone have any access to DriveClub.

Let rationality prevail!!!

shloobmm31140d ago

Where do you get your numbers?

NegativeCreep4271140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

Prove me wrong, shloobmm3. Microsoft and the Xbox One depend on you.

andibandit1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

"....let alone have any access to DriveClub. "

Really... cause thats what this whole article is about

Justjoined1231140d ago

Why should he prove you wrong? you are the one who just pulled some numbers out of your ass lol.

XanderZane1140d ago

Why you say this, because most of the comments are negative for FlopClub? Acutally I think more PS4 fanboys are on here who are pissed off because the PS+ version of DriveClub wasn't available on launch day and Sony is making excuses. After all the pretty videos Sony/Evolution should of this game, gamers automatically thought it would be a stellar game, but it's not. Not even close to that.

http://www.metacritic.com/g...

I would like you to prove that 50% of the people commenting here don't have PS4's. I own one. Go on and prove it. LMAO!! Good luck with that.

Some people need to relax, it won't be delayed, it just isn't out RIGHT this second.

SMH.

HighlyDoubtful1140d ago

Explain ur definition of delayed please...

Mornzie1140d ago

@highly

It's not the point I was trying to make, if it's delayed, it's not the end of the world, it will eventually release.
If I sat and stared at the Playstation store waiting I'd be annoyed too, I've even Pre ordered Driveclub and was hoping to try out the game before I picked it up.

I suppose I'll have to wait, but it's not a huge deal to me, maybe I'm the silly one who knows.

Chill people.

XanderZane1140d ago

They said it was because the PSN servers were having issues. It's true the PSN server were down and both DriveClub & NBA 2K14 games were have connection and server problems. I think part of it was because DriveClub didn't get stellar reviews and knowing Sony, they knew people would be eager to play this and problem just through the $50 or $60 down either before or on launch day just to try the game. Now gamers like this guy is flipping out at what they paid for. The PS+ version is available now if you can get to the PS Store to download it. I won't be buying this crap, but I do want to try it for myself.

lelo2play1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

Another BS lie from Sony. They intentionally delaying the PS+ version of Driveclub to see if more people buy the full version of the game.
PS+ for PS4 isn't worth the price. Complete waste of money.
