Rumor: Sony Finalizing Details for "Bonkers" E3 Lineup; Driveclub Gameplay Will Be Showcased

Microsoft’s Xbox Department Head Phil Spencer has been quite vocal on the line-up he wants to bring at E3. While he did not give details, he went on record several times hinting that it’s going to be extremely solid. On the other hand the folks at Sony have been quite low profile, honing their own line-up without really saying anything about it, yet, a few rumored details have been leaked.

I'm losing my Patience for DC. First it was free. Then it was delayed. And now, it delayed again to add VR functions to DC. The wait is long overdue.

I_am_Batman2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

When did they ever say that they delayed it for the addition of VR functions?

JoGam2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

Actually they did say the delay was NOT due to VR.

On topic: I think the reason why Sony is quiet on games they're showing is because there may be new ip's with never seen before footage. I actually believe The Last Guardian will be shown.

jhoward5852268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

My bad, I meant to say it was speculated on sevral sites that Sony delayed DC again; maybe to add VR functions. its early in the morning if you know what i mean.

But I'm loosing my patience for DC though. The wait is long overdue.

ThunderSpark2268d ago

After the strong NPD sales and PS4 reaching 7 million consoles, I think all Sony has to do at E3 is show up and the world will go crazy. I'm definitely looking forward to what they're going to bring. More sales for the PS4 means more support, less parity clause, and more exclusives.

Mankey2268d ago

Sony has a LOT to live up to this E3.

2013 one of the best they've ever done and anything that's even slightly less than awesome will seem like a step back.

hulk_bash19872268d ago


Long overdue yes, but it looks like its gonna be worth the wait.

tbone5672268d ago

Driveclub was delayed because it had problems. Sony said they had to go back to the drawing board. I don't have much faith in this title.

ABizzel12268d ago

Sony can easily sell 1 million copies of Drive Club. Simply make sure the controls, handling, gameplay, and graphics are top notch, and change the name to GT: Drive Club.

Boom system seller.

chrismichaels042268d ago

Sony loaded up the bases with their massively successful PS4 launch passing 7 million sales. If they can have yet another huge E3 showing this year...its going to be a grand slam leading into this years holiday season.

TheXgamerLive2267d ago

I think this E3 is going to be incredible for both camps. Many new ip's and many follow up games.
To be honest ill be very happy if theirs finally some news on FallOut4. This will cause me to jump for joy yep yep.

DOMination-2267d ago

Sony are hard at work putting together their three montage videos that last four minutes each that nobody cares about. Haven't they run out of bad europop backing tracks by now?

randomass1712267d ago

VR would be a nice addition. I wouldn't have minded a delay for that feature. That being said, I don't think that's actually the case.

It will still be free for PS Plus members once its released but the paid version will be superior in terms of content or something like that

Abriael2268d ago

Good things come to those who wait.

jhoward5852268d ago

That's true. one delay is Ok, but two delays is pushing it. Don't you agree?

dodgemoose2268d ago

^ No, not at all. If it's not ready, don't release it. I'd rather spend my money later and get a better product.

Dudebro902268d ago

Duke Nukem Forever would beg to differ.

andibandit2268d ago

Sorry, but saying delays are ok is bollocks. I can appreciate that they want to increase the quality of the product, but the crowd still has to be fed.
If every game from now untill 2024 was automatically delayed 10 years, meaning you wouldnt have anything new to play ubtill 2024, imsure youd be singing a different tune

aceitman2268d ago

@dudebro90, red dead redemption would beg to differ. And that turned out to be a mega hit and everyone was happy they delayed it to make it what it was. There's a difference in delays when u have talented devs.

MysticStrummer2268d ago

"If every game from now untill 2024 was automatically delayed 10 years…"

As if that's even remotely similar to DC's situation…

Delays are ok if the game improves. 10 years is excessive in anyone's book, but delays like that are incredibly rare, almost non-existent in fact.

Give me a delay over the normal release that needs multiple patches any day. How many people would rather that BF4 had been delayed?

KwietStorm2268d ago

That's just a generic quotable at this point. If the game finally comes out and is disappointing, we'll never hear the end of it.

BlakHavoc2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

I'm loving my PS4 and can't wait for TLOU! Honestly I hope Sony decides to go all out and starts unleashing those nukes they have brewing, we all know MM, Bend, SSM, London, Japan, and plenty more have games in the works, lets see them! Last years E3 was kind of a bummer in terms of games showed, as well as Gamescom, TGS and GDC, I pray that Sony decides to pull the curtain on at least a couple more of their AAA titles. My personal lineup i'd like to see shown are;

1. The Order (show like a 5 minute clip of just pure gameplay).

2. Uh duh...UC4 in all it's glory!

3. Sony Bends Project *fingers crossed* SYPHON FILTER REBOOT!

4. Updated Drive club gameplay!

5. Media Molecules project

6. and finally, give me The Last Guardian!

If just half of these are met, i'll be a very happy man.

randomass1712267d ago


Better a delayed game than a bad game. Miyamoto said it best "a bad game is forever."

ScareFactor2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

Yea I am very worried about Drive Club, was excited at first than it got delayed than I found out it had all super cars and possibly no customization. I will wait to see customization (if there is any) and gameplay before I bother. I will play Forza in the meantime. A big delay is never a good sign. They delayed it because game was "boring" how can you make a racing game boring? If its boring, you shouldn't be making racing games, well a realistic one and not motorstom

DigitalRaptor2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

1) Be honest, you never we excited about DriveClub.

2) When was it ever confirmed to have customization?

3) A delay means they can spend more time making it better than it already was. If you can't handle your own expectations, then that's your error, not the game's. What was it that Miyamoto said? "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." If you rush out Forza 5 only to have it ready for launch despite issues, those issues will always be there.

4) They never delayed it cause it was "boring".

Troll harder.

Tatsuya 2268d ago

Sounds like an Xbot to me, only PS Nation cares for DriveClub and YOU are not one of us :)

Angeljuice2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

They happen to have a large portfolio of critically acclaimed driving games going back well over a decade. Could you be more clueless? Hmmm...Perhaps you are trolling?

GarrusVakarian2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

"Boring", he says. From the devs that bought you 'Motorstorm'...." boring".

You aren't "very worried" about DC at all. You don't own a PS4 and will never buy DC. So stop with the fake concern.

I'm glad it got delayed, in fact, Forza 5 is the game im most playing at the moment and i wish this game received a delay too. There aren't enough tracks or cars and there is no store front. A delay is just what this game needed. Bring on the delays if it means a better end game. Every time DC has been shown, it's looked better than the previous build, so im glad it was delayed.

MysticStrummer2268d ago

"They delayed it because game was "boring""

Ahhh you got me. I thought you might be serious until I got to that point, even if you did bring up Forza, which should have been delayed to add content and looked like a last gen upscale visually.

sic_chops2268d ago

You don't want a rushed game like Forza, do you? Let them make it and it will be great.

randomass1712267d ago

Exactly. A good delayed game is better than a bad rushed game. Forza, Battlefield 4, etc. Gamers need more patience. :/

bennissimo2268d ago

Can't wait to see what E3 has, for all consoles.

sarshelyam2268d ago

I don't know where you get your information but Sony flat out said no retail game will come with tacked on features. If a game is going to be released to support Project Morpheus, it's going to have a completely different version, a Project Morpheus version...not a PS4 version with Morpheus support.

CryofSilence2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

Losing patience because it was free to PS+ and because they are adding functions? Interesting.

3-4-52267d ago

Was I the only one who got excited for a Bonkers Sega Genesis Sequel ?

jhoward5852267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

I've never played Bonkers before. Its looks like a lot of fun.

Too bad I don't own a Sega genesis. But I could give a shot on an Sega gen emulator if I can find the game online.

LKHGFDSA2267d ago

plus the game is basically a tech demo anyway.

BallsEye2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

Same story as with GT. Seeing gameplay every year at many e3's it actually took to release GT or Last Guardian-.-?

LightofDarkness2268d ago

I have a feeling Driveclub will be overshadowed by what's coming at E3 ;)

Roger2Doger2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

No doubt but these inside sources are a complete joke at times.

"Hey everyone, Sony's E3 will be bonkers"

Wow, that sure told us a lot.

Phene2268d ago

@rogerdodger ...I know right lol

And gameplay of a game they're making? No waaaay!

randomass1712267d ago

Not like they're wrong though! I bet Sony will be showing off some great stuff.

Charybdis2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

Can't see why people would disagree: Deep down, the order, uncharted, the devision, assasin creed unity, dragon age, the witcher, dying light, exclusive watchdog and destiny content etc.

BlakHavoc2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

I agree lol, while i'm sure it'll satisfy those like myself that are waiting on an update, it's bound to get overshadowed by the heavy hitters sure to show up at E3 this year. Unless the graphics are out of this world and put everything else to shame, I have a feeling it won't be one of the most talked about games post E3.

aerisbueller2267d ago

I sure hope so. DriveClub is pretty and all, but like WatchDogs, I grew bored of hearing about it like 8 months ago. If MediaMolecule shows their game at E3, now that'd be something to get truly hype about. That, or a release window for Morpheus. Though I doubt either of those will happen.

ArbitorChief2268d ago

Driveclub better be 60 FPS after this delay.

dodgemoose2268d ago

Would be surprised if it isn't. Seems like one of the more obvious reasons it has been delayed this long.

Drekken2268d ago

Insiders have said the main reason for delay was the fact that the game was boring and the online was boring.

These guys made Motorstorm. There is no reason it should be a boring. I am glad it was delayed to make a better game.

TKCMuzzer2268d ago

I agree. The only thing that would have caused such a set back was going back through the code to get it up to 60fps, especially if they had been targeting 30fps since concept. Gamers needs and wants cause the delay, we should be thankful they want to give gamers want they want.

nunley332268d ago

It wouldn't surprise me if it's 60fps because VR needs that,it'll be a great game that blows Forza away just like GT always did.

aerisbueller2267d ago

Why would it be? They've chosen the route of better graphics over fps, and said so several times. I think that's actually the better choice to be honest. I'd rather it run at 30fps and look twice as good. If they somehow optimized it to run at 60fps, imagine if they pushed that much more detail all over again. In any case, the dev said the delay was because the game wasn't amazing to play yet, which is probably the best reason I can think of for a delay.

TheFallenAngel2268d ago

If Sony keeps bringing the games I doubt the ps4 will slow down in sale any time soon.

Hellsvacancy2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

I can literally name nine (real people) and me who are waiting for games like The Witcher 3/Destiny before purchasing a PS4

Lots of games to come

Drekken2268d ago

I have sunk more time into Warframe and DCUO than any of the retail games. Infamous was a great game though!

It was time for a faster machine for me... I couldn't be happier.

TKCMuzzer2268d ago

I don't regret getting mine at launch. Battlefield 4 at 60fps is a massive improvement from the sub 30fps on PS3. With Watch Dogs etc and of course the Destiny beta around the corner, even better things are coming.

videgamenext12268d ago

They haven't brought any games yet. I feel dumb for buying a ps4

Phene2268d ago

I'm kinda with u on this one ...I've been playing resogun and mercenary kings lol

Silly gameAr2268d ago

Yeah, it's been 6 whole months.They should have thousands of games out by now. When I invest in a gaming console, I want all my games fast. Forget dev time and quality.:/

dragon822268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Battlefield 4
DC Universe Online
DeadNation: Apocalypse Edition
Doki-Doki Universe
Escape Plan
inFAMOUS: Second Son
Killzone: Shadow Fall
Mercenary Kings
Rayman Legends
Sound Shapes
The Pinball Arcade
The Playroom
Tiny Brains
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
Zen Pinball 2

These are just the games that I own. I am pretty sure there are plenty of games out for PS4 already. If you can't find anything to play then that is on you.

I have also rented:

Call of Duty: Ghosts
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
Madden NFL 25
Need For Speed: Rivals
The LEGO Movie Videogame

synistatha12268d ago

Well if your not happy with it I'll gladly take it off your hands

The_Sneauxman2267d ago

@phene, I'm enjoying Mercenary Kings and to say it like it's the only interesting game , outside of Resogun, shows how you don't appreciate games in general. Infamous SS is out, but I guess you forgot about that one too right?

Phene2267d ago

Played Infamous, it was short as hell ..own battlefield, it's broken ..Killzone was meh, nothing beats kz2 ..the point I was making was there's no substantial triple A games with length ...I'm waiting on Destiny but that's September! ...maybe even Watch Dogs but that was delayed so beyond the point of these consoles release Window ...not to mention DriveClub ...I'm not knocking the games, but u gotta admit for a next gen release it's been dry.

videgamenext12267d ago

Played infamous, metal gear,tomb raider and trails on it. Most other games i can get on wiiu or ps3. I don't care about graphics being better. But most of you guys gave the wiiu crap after 2 months of not having new games and now to the defense of the ps4. Wow just wow.

I'm curious what they've been up to. Not really interested in them making a big deal out of it at E3 though. Quick presentation would suffice. More interested in The Order, Uncharted and reveals.

I wish we were getting a new wipeout from Sony instead of DC.
