The promising racer from Evolution Studios might end up being the elite title of the month. Don't forget that most huge games are in November now.
It'll have to fight with Sunset Overdrive for that title And that's a very tough battle
Anyway, it's a great month for both consoles
Most importantly, it'll be a good month for gamers on both sides of the fence. Sunset Overdrive and Drive Club? Sign me up!
Pretty sure Sunset Overdrive will beat it out. It'll be in competition with Alien and Evil Within though. Sunset Overdrive will appeal to a wider audience and I bet scores high 8 / low 9, and we will see these other 3 games somewhere in the 7 or 8 range. I think it's more fair and will be more interesting how it fairs against Forza Horizon 2's metacritic of 86. They are both racers only releasing about a week apart and that's a more fair comparison
@xblskull Whenever I see your predictions towards what game will triumph over the other, which in your case is always an xbone exclusive LOL! my reaction is normally.. "Uh huh.. yeah, okay bro, suuuuure... if you say soooooo"
@xblskull "Pretty sure Sunset Overdrive will beat it out." Maybe in your dreams. We don't give a toss about your BS biased opinions. So keep that garbage unto yourself.
@XBLSkull: i didn't expect less from a blind fanboy like you. DriveClub is a great deal for racing fans.. X1-only owners will have SO this month. In the end everyone wins..
Sorry guys but the fact is Sunset Overdrive or Evil Within should take home that title.
Sunset Overdrive may outsell DriveClub but only because Driveclub is available to download free (minus some tracks and cars) and many will be trying that first. Having said that with the numbers the PS4 is doing compared to the xone, the obvious quality of Driveclub has every chance of doing big numbers
@amiga-man: maybe but it will for sure sell consoles and even lots of PS+ subscriptions. Get PS+ get DriveClub! Pretty smart marketing
I like how people are using FH2's meta number instead of Forza 5's to go up against Drive Club, lol. People are so against comparing the two games until it comes to meta scores right? I thought an open world racer shouldn't be compared to a track racer... sheesh
If, IF Drive Club beats Sunset overdrive it'll be "Well PS gamers got it free from Plus so that's why it did better". I plan to download DC.
Are you guys kidding me. Driveclub is THE racing game to beat this year and the fact there is NO racing game available on the PS4 will make this the top seller in October. I would have my doubts if Destiny would have launched in the same month - but since that's not the case, there is no competition. Racing games are huge on the PS brand - mine is already downloading. I can't wait for this game. Don't make me laugh bringing up Sunset Overdrive into this discussion. A new brand who nobody heard of on a console nobody's buying...nope. Not gonna happen.
Tbh I'm a huge ps4 fan but I'd prefer sunset overdrive any day over a racing game. Good thing is drive club is free :D
True, but as a long time PlayStation Gamer, Insomniac, seems to be on a downward trend, I mean it seems like Sony hasn't even tried to buy them because they're lacking positive critical reception for all of their games (Ratchet and clank, Outernaughts, Fuse, and Resistance 2-3), hopefully this Sunset Overdrive IP bucks the trend.
Sony hasn't tried to buy anything with the exception of gaikai because they don't have the money. They are doing good not to close studios at the moment.
Resistence 3 was rated highly, and IMO was the best one in the series and an overall excellent expirience
Yeah, to this day Resistance 3 and Halo are the only true advocates for console shooting IMO (and maybe Goldeneye 64, but I was too young to judge how good it actually was). They are just a blast to play and I'm sure R3, just like Halo, will still be fun and have relevant gameplay in 10 years time.
tinynuggins Yet they spend money on exclusive games such as Bloodborne, The Order, Driveclub, another Uncharted etc. As well as employing again at Suckerpunch for a new title. Stop using that "no money" rubbish. Microsoft closed it's own studios which looks way worse, but that wasn't because they had no money lol. The simple fact is that Sunset is an Xbox One exclusive because like Tomb Raider and Titanfall, Microsoft threw a hell of a lot of money for it. Sony just doesn't do business like that as it really doesn't pay off.
Remember the Resistance 3 multiplayer? I don't...
I love Ratchet and Clank games and i finished ALL of them (except Q-force and A4O) and everytime it's a great experience cause i love that series. Resistance on the other hand didnt really appeal to me, and neither did the very bad Fuse. right now to me Insomniac Games = Ratchet games (if i put Spyro aside). Sunset seems to be a fun game, but not worth investing on x1 only for that game.
Don't forget Bayonetta 2.
I guess everyone is just upset that their precious PS4 has less games than the Wii U.
"Hey guys! Don't forget the Wii U" lmao
^lol You can't seriously believe the PS4 has less games than the Wii U! :^/ DC shaped up well after the huge delay. Seems fresh; I'm hopeful for a damn good racer. Saw the night time crash someone filmed and it filled me with adrenaline! Imagine with Morpheus! o_O
It would be the best game coming if it was next gen.
SSOD? Lmao! Try harder next time.
"Driveclub Could Be The Best Game Released In October" No.
It does look great but I'm hoping Evil Within and Borderlands claim that prize.
theres nearly zero hype about SSOD. Also theres much less pre-orders for SSOD. If anything, I would rather put Lords of the Fallen against instead.
What an awfully badly written article too.
Driveclub will sell better than Sunset Overdrive and Not going to compare two games that are completely different, know point.
its quite funny how if anyone even mentions that something might do better than DC, its automatically disagreed with by all the rabid fanboys on this site. just shows how insecure they really are.
Nah Samurai Warriors 4 will own both DC and SSOD. Its gettings 10s across the board.
"could be" although from a ps fanboy site that opinion really holds no merit.
Careful now, don't be throwing stones in your glass house! ;^P It looks great. Hopefully it will BE great and - more importantly - good fun!
Every site is a "ps fanboy" site if it doesn't conform to your xbox fanboy ideology.
That's a bold statement. There's a lot of games releasing this month, mostly new IP so lots of unknowns in there.
The Evil Within gets my vote, speaking as an uniformed voter (haven't played), but I'll be buying DC along with TEW.
Yeah man I agree. I'm looking forward to Driveclub too, but be honest...when was the last time anyone said "So and so racer was my goty"? I say goty because if it were to be the best game this month it would have to beat some goty contenders.
lol.... the answer is Bayonetta 2.
The evil within says hi.
Hahaha this is pretty funny theres a reason sony is giving half the game away for free on release cause they do not have high hopes for it and they are right seeing is how this game only has 50 cars even with the extra year of development
I know huh? Kinda like Microsoft is still giving away Forza 5. They've given away enough to report 1.5 million in worldwide Forza 5 sales. Or maybe that's a shipped or shifted number you know Microsoft and how they report sales hahahaha!
When did MS start giving away Forza 5? You mean for that one weekend?
Don't you people have anything better to do than to come in DC articles and bash it. Get a life troll. "Sony is giving half the game away for free" Maybe get your facts straight before you post BS next time.
If your going to troll sort yourself out. The ps+ version has 10 cars, that's a fifth of the final game, it has one country, that's 1 out of 5 . I don't understand people's eagerness to ditch the game as I was in the beta and quite frankly thought it was brilliant, so imagine there will be some humble pie eating as the racing is as addictive as anything. As for your comment, half usually means half of what the final number, simple maths, half of 50 is 25.
Lots of competition. The Evil Within, Sunset Overdrive, Bayonetta 2, Forza Horizon 2, and a few others. Driveclub might be though. I'm reading great reviews from people who got it early. I'm getting all the games I listed, btw. Such a good month!
I would say Sleeping Dogs is.
With all the great stuff out this month, I don't why I want to play sleeping dogs again. More than anything.
more pork buns
Sleeping dogs is flat out garbage.
I think I smell a troll lol. Say what you want about Sleeping Dogs but it still has the greatest combat mechanics out of any open world game to date.
It could also be the worst... Or somewhere in the middle... Isn't pondering fun?!? =D
I'm guessing Sunset Overdrive will be more fun, but Driveclub will most likely be the best looking game released in October. Can't wait to get both.
Lords of the Fallen > Game will surprise a lot of people
It looks like it is copying dark souls pretty hard, but thats ok because i love dark souls.
Just Mordor copied AC and Batman take a badass game or games, combine it and put your own spin on it
ya but lotf looks almost exactly like dark souls, setting, character, camera angle, boss, all of it.
Stoked, put some xbone analog sticks, in my spare DS4.. #Ready
Nope. Been playing it all the evening. (can provide proof if you don't believe me). It's ok. So far it's everything I thought it would be. Good graphics (tho not as good as the Internet makes them look somehow). Kinda grainy? Anyway it's nowhere close to sim so I don't know where that straddling term came from. It's kinda shallow. I find it to actually be kind of easy. Some locations definitely look better than others. India looks great. Not as fun as fh2. To be honest I would even dare say fh2 looks better in certain situations and I definitely wouldn't have thought that if I hadn't played it at length. . The lighting or something I dunno. Can't put my finger on it. You just kinda crank through race after race and that's it. Simple. If I were reviewing id give it a 75 tho I admittedly don't have any business giving review scores. It's fun. Just shallow. If you were hoping for a close to sim experience, this is not it. Definitely better than nfs rivals.
Lots of games in October, evil within, sunset overdrive, sleeping dogs, alien isolation, lords of the fallen, samurai warriors 4, bayonetta 2, smash bros. 3ds. There is absolutely no way dc will be better than all of those big games. The very idea is laughable.
Sunset Overdrive is the game I'm looking forward to the most. I don't think its going to win game of the year awards, but I think it will be a game everyone will think is fun. I'm a huge Ratchet fan so Im biased though. Surprised people aren't mentioning Freedom Wars, Smash Bros, or the Alien game. Bayonetta 2 looks goo too.
I agree. Just looks like some great lighthearted fun
Man, look at the trolls come flooding in. I'm looking forward to this game. It looks good, and it looks like it plays well (despite all the trolls saying we don't know how it plays, the fact that no one is complaining about the gameplay- except those selfsame trolls- is a good sign. But that's what I get for using common sense, I guess.
And this COULD BE the laziest bit of journalism in October.
One thing is for sure, October and November are going to be expensive months. Especially if you own both Ps4/Xbone like me.
Yeah I own both plus I want to buy some Wii U and Vita games. Its an expensive couple of months. The only MUST BUYS for me are LBP 3, Sunset Overdrive, and probably CoD AW though. Im not a big racing fan but I LOVED Motorstorm Apocalypse and I hope Drive Club captures some of the fun.
What dictates it will be the best game? Certainly not gaming journalists who are crap at games and have biased opinions , either for or against , the game will be marked by the players, and from what I've seen, it looks awesome.
