Now we know it will never happen.

@tuglu

Actually you now know for sure that there's a ps plus version ready to be released anytime Sony chooses to so there's that.

AWESOME!!!! I'm so happy for more people to experience this game!! Best game of 2014 for me. Do not call me crazy until you actually try it. The game is EXTRAORDINARY. Best looking game I've ever laid my eyes on, period. And the physics in the game are absolutely godlike, the cars feel so amazing.

I got the platinum trophy in this game to show my dedication to it, and even bought the AMAZING season pass which I never do for games today, never. This game is outstanding, PLEASE give it a try people. And not just for 5 minutes, please.

You can also upgrade to the full game for only 25 bucks!! That is an unbelieveable deal! If you love racing games, whether sim or arcade, Driveclub is a fantastic game.

nX820d ago

It's really underrated, people will finally see how amazing this game is. I'm still playing it regularly, the only racing game I enjoyed more than this was GT4.

ELE_Victim820d ago

Godlike physics? Ok, whatever you say. This game does a fraction of physics processing of Gran Turismo, Forza or Project Cars. It's very arcade and simplified.

u4one820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

if you love arcade racers that focus on graphics first and don't sweat the details of racing, then yes its great. if you are looking for a racing game that really dives into all aspects of the sport then its below average.

it doesn't have real "godlike" physics unless by that you mean that the way your car handles/accelerates/brakes are impossible by mere earthly mortals in which case I would say yes.. godlike in deed. or... fantastical. they are all canned, arcade physics. and no car in the real world can handle like they can in drive club. we'd have to wear pressure suits if it were accurate.

i don't hate it, but there are waaaaay better racing titles out there with way better physics and capabilities at the end of the day - but i say this as an avid fan of the racing genre and real life racing.

to me, if i were to make film analogies here i'd say titles like project cars, forza ms, gran turismo etc are the documentaries of racing and drive club is the big budget hollywood film with lots of effects and things that aren't really possible or accurate to real life.

iceman06820d ago

@BiggCMan...while it IS definitely one of the best looking games that I have seen, I wouldn't say the physics are "godlike". They truly DO serve their purpose in this particular game and add a sense of realness without going full sim. (which is what they were meant to do for this title)
@Bloodborn...I agree that it HAS gone underrated AFTER the changes to correct the online issues and the addition of the weather physics.
@ELE_Victim...while I agree that the physics aren't churning out GT or Forza level results, I don't doubt that they could. Evolution has stated over and over that they TUNED the physics to the point that they were for the purpose of it being a more "arcade" title. Earlier reports had the physics being more realistic. What I'm saying is that it's not a limitation of the engine so much as developer choice.

BiggCMan820d ago

I can't belive how many people think that I mean the physics are realistic. Did I say realistic? No. So instead of raging like dumb animals about it, try and process what I said. The physics in Driveclub are not realistic. Does that mean they are bad? NO. But they are such a way that makes the game extremely fun to play, and better than just about every other racing game I've ever played. The cars feel extremely solid and grounded. Driveclub has the best car physics, not the most realistic. Best does not equal realistic, it's what's most fun to feel while using the controller. Idiots over here hating on my comment because they aren't smart enough.

LexHazard79820d ago

No you didnt say they were realistic. You took it up another level and said they were GOD like! Cant get any realer than GOD creator of all things. Just saying.

Movieworld820d ago

Its a good game. Best of 2014?! I doubt it's even top 10.

WellyUK820d ago

"EXTRAORDINARY" lol your joking right? It's best feature is it's visuals, everything else is average at best. It's good but compared to other racing games its bad.

kraenk12819d ago

The salt of the XBot army is strong with this one.

It's gone now, this was an accident.

inveni0820d ago

Think this will be a PS+ game for July?

XanderZane819d ago

That was one BIG accident. Give what gamers they've been waiting for and then take it away 24hrs later. Not a smart move. The PS Plus version is still on the PS Store, but now it says "Unavailable for purchase." If you click on "tell me more.." is says you already own this game. lol!! What a mess.

Dee_91820d ago

don't blame your crappy childhood on my wife!

Christopher820d ago

So, it exists. They just won't release it ASAP. Interesting way to handle something promised almost a full year ago Sony.

*sighs and shakes his head*

CYCLEGAMER820d ago

Been longer than a full year...they promised this in 2013.

Christopher820d ago

@MELMAN26: Well, I mean since Driveclub was actually released. They couldn't deliver before release.

Forn820d ago

@MELMAN26

They didn't expect the network issues though so it's understandable they delayed the PS+ version.

donthate820d ago

forn:

The network issues don't take over a year after release to fix. It's a shame for the people that bought the game, and even a bigger shame Sony f'ed over the people that they promised it for free like me!

Surprised Sony didn't get more flack over this and instead get support! :(

InTheZoneAC820d ago

wasn't this game $25 just a week ago? if you really wanted it you would've bought it a long time ago.

I don't know how ps+ works behind the doors and I don't care to know.

What I do know is that I get free games every month and I'm not going to wait a year and hold my breath to hopefully get something for free when I know I would've enjoyed the game up to that point.

PS+ is great, but don't think you're entitled to something asap.

Christopher820d ago

***wasn't this game $25 just a week ago? if you really wanted it you would've bought it a long time ago. ***

It's not a matter of wanting, it's a matter of a company promising something, not delivering, saying it's still in the works, and still, almost a full year after release, not delivering on it.

***PS+ is great, but don't think you're entitled to something asap.***

I didn't know that 9 months after they said we would have it is ASAP.

badz149820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

@Christopher

It does exist actually. I was among the lucky ones who downloaded the PS+ edition the midnight it launched and upgraded to full game for $40 after playing for 1 hour. It dissapeared the next day though but I already got mine.

I think the PS+ version is already up on my local PSN now because I remember seeing it very recently. I'll check again.

Sony! * facepalm *

BallsEye820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

Finally, 2 years later after promised release date! Oh wait...it was just an error. Still not relased. ROFL

They'll release it allright, when everyone will already purchase the retail version.

geddesmond819d ago

Yep Sony right around the time the game should get a price drop, go release the ps plus version to boost sales so you can keep the price up. PS guys the graphics are the only good thing about the game. Driving mechanics suck

It's a highly impressive game, so I'm sure many people will enjoy the PS+ version, and it should result in a nice boost of sales for the developers.

I hope they'll announce some nice expansions with new locations/tracks soon.

Randostar820d ago

Every month or two a new expansion is released with new cars!

Neonridr820d ago

what???? wow, never thought it would see the light of day.

Will check it out.

RiseofScorpio820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

probably tommorow when the store updates, and hopefully

GameDev1820d ago

Yeah I scrambled to my PS straight away after finding this news and saw only two editions

As the_dark_one says, PS store in europe will update tomorrow

Gladly enough I just bought 1 year ps plus so am excited to try it out. Was going to buy the full game anyway
