New details about DriveClub PS Plus version.
Would be happy with half price season pass :) in
Season pass is already an amazing deal. $25 for extra vehicles, tracks, etc that's worth $50 or more.
They could've at least put up a demo version of it.
Share play it
Share play does not come even close to representing the visual quality of a game like this.
Almost a year delay but we're getting there.
Another one of Septic's fine comments. Great contribution bro.
The PS+ version is still coming and this is yet more proof. Sony and Evo were not lying about the PS+ version of Driveclub. They just ran into technical issues/screw ups. They had network issues for the first couple weeks after launch, but the game is great after patches, new features, and new content. Same thing as Suspend/Resume taking longer than anticipated to arrive on PS4. They were not lying all this time about the feature.
I have no idea why people were rushing them to get it out so much when they know they servers weren't stable enough yet and the flood of traffic from ps plus users would cripple the game all over again
But wasn't it until the game launched that they found out about the server issues which if i recall was one of the reasons why they delayed the ps+ version
rushing? the game was already delayed a year to get the game ready for launch and the playstation plus version is at least 7 months more of a delay to get the servers stable on top of that. that is not exactly rushing anything. at e3 they should just give the whole game away for free to plus members.
Im not really sure i see the light at the end of the tunnel here...it's like you're saying: Noones lying, they're just incompetent?. Uhmm, lets celebrate?
True but at this point people should just get the full version even a pre owned copy for very cheap
I dont know if its a server issues they were having. I think they made the mistake of telling people there will be a PS+ version of this game. They then realized that they invested too much money and time into this game for it not to sell well. So using the "Server issue" is an excuse to allow the game to be on the market so that it can sell as many copies before releasing the PS+ version. I have the retail version of this game, but it seems that for months now there is no longer a server issue, why not release the PS+ version? regardless, this game is a must own for any driving fanatics. I really think this game is worth the retail price.
The PS+ version would have made them more money through content packs/upgrades to the full version and been far less of a PR mess.
GameStop has the disc version for $20 brand new!
Yup I got it for $20 new a month ago
Same here. I was waiting for the Plus edition. But, at $19.99, I couldn't resist. Gotta say it's the best $20 I have spent in a long while. I would've been upset with the server issues initially, but after they fixed them, I actually wouldn't have minded paying full price for the game.
Maybe they'll announce it at E3
I almost don't even care to play it at this point. How did this go so horribly wrong?
Its free so stop complaining. If you wanted the game you would buy the full version
The game is really cheap now, i got it for £12. I wish they would just add private lobbies they mentioned it in January but still haven't done anything.
Good, who didn't play it yet will see how great the game is. Of course, for people who hate racing games this won't be a "wow!!". Wait, i have to correct myself: even for those this game could be a "wow!!", about the graphics over all. Haters will keep hating, fanboys will keep bashing but the game keeps getting better.
When the plus version is finally released people will still find something to beach about. As much as they made a fuss about wanting the plus version they will then say they're disinterested now.They will start asking for the entire game to be given to them cause they had to wait so long, even though they had no intention of buying the game. Cause if they did they would of gotten it already since it can be bought for less than thirty dollars. There may be a spike in server traffic when the plus version arrives, but i am sure it wont be from the hold outs thats been crying the loudest for the plus version. We will hear how they have this or that game to play and dont need it cause they have the next coming soon. Yet they will still be in the comments trying their best to downplay the game, just like they've been doing this entire time. They are so salty it makes me wonder if they're the guys u see in winter in the tucks laying the salt on the roads they have so much in excess.
This is the biggest stain on the PS4 so far. In a sea of amazing success and dominance, they really flubbed this one up. I am in complete agreement that the complete game should be given out to PS+ subscribers as a mea culpa.
I disagree. What they can do is include the free content they gave us at the beginning to compensate for the online issues with the Ps plus version.
All I have to say is, If you are still waiting for this version of the game then you're just not interested in the game. That's just my opinion because this game costs next nothing at least if you're a fan of the genre.
With a project Cars out, I don't think many PS4 owners care about this game anymore..free or not.
Thats where your wrong buddy I have DC love it, and still play it even when I pick up my copy of PC later today. One is arcade the other is SIM so I get the best of both worlds.
Oh man...the 'they should just give us the full game for free' comments. Gamer entitlement really knows no limits around here.
Division just got delayed again, Ubisoft should just give us all a free copy now.
"Gamer entitlement really knows no limits around here." Eh, I don't see whats so wrong with the comments. Not only were we promised the PS+ version at launch, it got delayed at least 7 months and has went on sale a number of times. Like if you can find it at GameStop it will only run you $20 ( http://www.gamestop.com/ps4... ) and you can always try to price match with Target, Best Buy, Walmart or a number of other retailers to get that price there. But ignoring the fact that this whole thing has been an epic fiasco, I think the main reason why I agree with those comments is the fact that I don't see the point of the PS+ edition anymore. After 7+ months it certainly doesn't need a demo and the original $50 upgrade would have to be dropped to at least $20 or $30 to remain competitive with retailers. In so many ways it just makes sense to either cancel it altogether or do a "make good" and just give it away.
Of course they announce this now, i finally went through with buying this about 2 weeks ago smh
You bought the full version though, this is just a demo of it.
To those who have been waiting months for a free version of this fantastic, fun, intense and feature-complete racer, you should have just bought it months ago - it's been dirt cheap for a while now (WAY less than it would cost you to upgrade to the full digital version). Look at that video. It shows that the PS+ version is an absolutely minuscule, content-starved version compared to the full version. Well done for that largely pointless gesture of abstaining... for nothing. Not blaming you, since Sony are the ones that have screwed the pooch here, but some people should've put two and two together sooner.
