More direct-feed gameplay of Need for Speed has been released, showing another taste of what the demo available at Gamescom looks like on Sony's console.
Be keeping a close eye on NFS its really starting to grab my attention.
Still has always on DRM, still not buying.
Oh damn. Is it because of how DRM will affect you or just the principle of the matter?
I think it's just EA's 'bleed gamer of all being' stance on business these days.
Same here I'm not going to support always-online anything I wouldn't own a Xbox One if DRM stuck around
Yeah this is a huge bummer for me too. What about in X amount of years when they decide to take down the servers? Will you be able to go back and play the game? Not having an offline option is a really bad decision. Otherwise the game looks great. I'm not sure whether I'll buy it or not.
I don't care. If a game is good; regardless of whether its online only or not, I'm playing it.
I think it looks really good, love the customisation, but I wonder if you can disable the dynamic camera while turning. I'm willing to give it a shot of course,but I could see it getting in the way at times.
yup you can shut off the drift camera
Always online is just stupid. Look at the 1st video, at 3:35, the guy is rammed into over and over again while he is trying to do a race. Its going to be infuriating having to deal with these idiots who will constantly be in your way while your trying to win a race and avoid cops. Dont understand why they couldnt give us an offline option.
It's a BS anti consumer practice intended to stop piracy that hurts the paying customers while pirates will crack it inside a week just like they do all the other software based DRM and they'll be rewarded with the superior experience. In short, it's because EA is stupid and figures the best way to prevent piracy is to provide an experience inferior to the pirated versions.
Yeah the game looks good and realistic but I don't care how good it looks if I can't play it alone
Holy shit, this reminds me so much of NFS Carbon!
That game was awful though.
Gamer: "This looks amazing!" EA: "So amazing, it has DRM." Gamer walks away.
Looks super arcady
Yeah the drifting mechanic looks really overdone.
What's an arcade racer supposed to look like lol
this game looks super sexy.
Look awful,the gameplay look like rally X,what its the point of play something so unrealistic.why not better flying cars so the game don't look so ridiculous false.
DRM? No. Thanks!
Maybe it's just the darker lighting, but this game is seriously looking like the closest thing to photo realistic graphics on console. I'm just glad to see that all the nay sayers at the beginning of this, who tried to say there was hardly a graphical upgrade from last gen, were wrong. We've been getting some amazing looking games lately, and the future looks very bright for both PS4 and XBone.
