zeroreview: After nearly 2 years from its "initial" release date, Driveclub PS Plus edition is out, but I have to ask, Does Anybody Care? Justin absolutely doesn't.
Good for you Justin! But as you stated, its still free. A lot of people will care. You can't realistically expect people not to play a free game based on some grudge.
It's not free you need PS+ in order to play, but with that said its still a great deal.
"Does anyone still care?" Yeah millions of PS4 owners. Who the hell writes these articles? Maybe write a similar article when Microsoft finally releases an exclusive after 10 months of nothing.
@SKullDugger I agree that DriveClub PS+ version isn't free…It does come at no additional charge to the PS+ subscriber. And with that being the case, I doubt many people will refuse a "free" (and by free, I mean "no additional charge") game because they have to wait longer Its almost like a "buy 1, get 1 free"…You bought a subscription & your getting DriveClub PS+ version free. Now the delivery of DriveClub PS+ is SUPER DUPER LATE…But your not "out" anything, you incurred no net loss over it's tardiness. So does it suck that the delivery of the "free" product is SUPER late? Sure…But nobody but the ardent haters will say "I refuse to play it now"
I care! Driveclub is still the best racing sim made this gen.
its free so yeah i care!
I still care. It's the principal, follow through with a promise. If I like the game I will buy it.
Not a fan of racing games but I care enough to dl it and try it for free
I'm not a big aficionado of racing games, but if it's "free" (as in you need a ps+ subscription, which I already have), I will definitely give it a try, it looked graphically amazing, let's see how it plays, so... I DO care. I know it's still being supported with new cars and tracks, on top of free updates, I'm guessing there will be people who will play this, like it and buy it, maybe I will be one of them.
Stopped caring long ago.
The entire game is available in-store at Gamestop for $20.. if you have any interest in it, you might as well just pick it up. It's not a great game, but for $20 there's little room to complain.
Or you could just try it for free first. Why is that a problem?
I wouldn't play it but I'm sure the new people buying a PS4 will LOVE to have a new free game to play regardless of what it is. * Like I much prefer Forza, but back in the 90's I played tons of different racing games and not all of them were great, but I still had fun with almost all of them. I'm sure a few million people will still have fun with Drive Club, especially knowing that it's free, you don't have to get mad if you don't like it, and you won't feel you've wasted $60. * It's actually a perfect PS+ game, because of the above mentioned.
Exactly! I don't like racing games and i will play it anyway!
From the article: "After nearly 2 years from its 'initial' release..." ???? The initial release was October 2014. It's been 8 months, not 2 years.
Actually, the PS+ edition was supposed to be available when the PS4 released.
Warframe is free, and terrible, you can definitely expect me not to play Driveclub as well, since it's also undeniably busted. Free or not, shit is shit
Okay then. Good for you. I'm just happy to meet many other fellow players, see you in the game. *goes back to participate in club events*
Have you heard about any of the updates since its original release? It was busted day 1. It's not now.
Obviously someone in this comment section has no idea what they are talking about...warframe is great. Jk lol Driveclub is a top if not the top racing game out.
Warframe is not that good.
Ryse cost money and it was terrible too. What does either game have to do with Driveclub? As for undeniably busted, I deny it. So... your move?
I enjoy warfame
"Does Anybody Still Care?" You know they're selling PS4's in droves right? Most if not all those PS4's need a PS+ sub! I think people will take this game with a big ol' smile on their faces. I don't even like racing games, and I bought DC for $10. Beautiful game!
Many people bought PS4s after the Driveclub launch disaster and won't feel bitter about it. It's a free game to them!
Ill take it, and if I really like it, I'll pick up the game for 20 or 30 bucks somewhere.
Justin doesn't care everyone. Now the question is, who cares if Justin cares or not?
I would hope that if you read his stuff, and see any TZR content with regularity, you give at least a quarter of a fuck if he cares
Well I don't read his stuff, so i give a lot less than a quarter.
That's good for the people you want to test drive before they buy. It's a good game for a arcade racer.
I'll download it.
Hell, I ended up just getting it for $24 off PSN. Took some getting used to after Forza & project CARS (understandably) but I'm loving it... can't wait to play more when I get home!
As someone who bought the game in February and still plays and enjoys it. Lol no. I recommend everyone to buy the full game, its awesome.
Heavily debated as one of the best looking racers this gen...................free. Hell yes I care, for free...oh I care a whole lot. lol
You're not getting the whole game, so if you like it, prepare to pay.
I know, its good though. I get to see if its worth the extra money. I don't really play many racing games besides GT series ie car rpg lol. I can at least give it a try though.
If nobody cared, there wouldn't be articles posted the second the PS store F's up and makes it available by accident If nobody cared, they could have released it already without worrying about overloading their servers.
People clearly care more about when Playstation fucks up than what they actually fucked up
Honestly, if anyone really cared about the game, they would have bought it by now. This is mostly for casual racing fans who maybe need to try it before they buy it.
Not true If those people that cared "got wind" of a free version coming around, MANY of them would have held off. I say that because I had waited a while for that very reason before I eventually just bought the retail version. Now, I waited 8 months before I bought the full game, so who is to say other people didn't wait even longer than me for that free version?
If you waited 8 months you obviously didn't care much for the game. Anyone who was truly interested would want the full experience anyway. 8 months is a long time to wait for a game you really want to play. I guess you must have had different priorities. Drive club wasn't on the top of that list.
"If you waited 8 months you obviously didn't care much for the game. Anyone who was truly interested would want the full experience anyway. " You couldn't be me wrong if you tried. I cared for the game from day 1. BUT When you're told a potential "FREE" version is waiting in the background, many people (like myself) are going to have the "I can try before I fully buy" mentality. It's not about my "priorities". If ANY game is announced to have a "FREE" version looming, ANY potential buyer will possibly get the wait-to-try mentality. And regardless of WHEN I purchased it, the fact that I DID purchase it OBVIOUSLY says I care since I shelled out money.
"Does Anybody Still Care?" After so much time has passed, I don't think many care for the game. People have moved on...
I only care about the principle of touting a service's features, and continually failing to deliver. Pre-emptive STFU to this being an entitlement issues ... if less people were satisfied with crummy service the world would be a much, much better place.
I don't personally but I am sure someone does. Next E3 sony will announce something else we will get in 3 years
I didn't know so I couldn't of cared, but now I know and I care, I want it.
I managed to download it successfully before they pulled it yesterday.
Was it worth the wait in your opinion?
No because ironically enough it comes out a day before my plus expires.
As a long term owner of Driveclub it's exciting to see a new group of players introduced to the game. I've really enjoyed Driveclub and it'll be great to have new racers to play and compete with in the games online races. If you do like the game, I highly recommend the season pass. Probably the best value season pass I have purchased in a very long time.
Not to mention all the free updates they gave players post launch as an apology. I spent a bit of time with the game and it was fun. If you look at the game before all the updates install it's a completely different experience.
Of course people still care. What kind of nonsense question is this? Look at Evolution's facebook and THEN ask this question. A year later, people are STILL asking for it to come out. Thank god this is just some person's "opinion" piece. Hell, I have the game's retail version and I still care. And when it finally does release (which is obviously extremely soon) and all those downloads start happening, you'll see just how many people care.
I'm going to download it because I'm interested in trying the game and it won't cost me anything to do so.
I'm sure anyone who has not tried it, including new and future PS4 owners will give it a go.
I think a lot of people should care.
I have been waiting to give it a shot.
People without Driveclub are probably the saame people who invented salad-poor people. Go back to your PC's and enjoy Batman haha!
If nobody cared, you wouldn't have written this article.
Fantastic that the article is an opinion about what kind of people care, and doesn't presuppose that no one cares
so is the ps+ free version the full game or is it more of a try out?
I sure don't anymore and few others should when they've either already had to buy the game out of necessity or got playing something else.
Just as i was trying to buy the game lol cant find it anywhere for $20 at gamestops. But yes i care, a lot of my friends care. Too bad you dont, we dont care that you dont care.
Not really into racing games but I'll definitely try this out.
It'll probably be fun for a few hours. I'll care when I see it show up on the store.
DriveClub is an incredible looking game that runs smooth and plays well. I bought the retail version and have no regrets. Granted, I didn't buy at launch, but they've fix pretty much everything.
I didnt get drive club, I'm by no means poor spedining over £600 on ps4 and games day one. I'm not a racing game fan and played this in London, I rented the game and will pick it up tomorrow cause its free.
