Rushy33 is working overtime on dishing out the corrections on these haters. I wish them well with Codemasters.

itsmebryan2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

What haters? The game was delayed over a year and was released broken or did I miss something? It was hyped as a For a killer and didn't come close. That's not hate, it's just facts.

Silly gameAr2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

Yeah, you missed a crapload of improvements apparently. I don't remember it being hyped as any kind of killer, and Forza isn't a huge franchise, so I'm not sure why it would need a "killer" in the first place.

Skillz12152846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

yea you missed a fantastic game...and its pure hate

fr0sty2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

Ah, Gaming Dolt...

"The lack of 4K blu-ray is apparently an issue for some players and we have done a through (can't even spell thorough) analysis on whether Sony can add it in the future."

Translation - They ripped off what another website (e-mpire.com) reported on the day PS4 Pro was announced, which was partially sourced from info about UHD discs that has been discussed by a guy named Jeff Rigby in various forums online for several months... which required no analysis at all on their part other than a quick Google search and the will to rip off other people's material without sourcing it. Who the hell do these people think they are?

yes sir drive club/sony did it wrong, they should be doing what ms is doing and keep releasing yearly forza games

see the different GT doesn't release every year
drive club 2 isn't happening anytime soon

launch a game than support it instead of releasing a newer one every fall

one GT game has outsold forza series and that's all that's needed to be said

and BTW many many AAA titles have launched with online issues so stop accusing drive club to be the only one. have you forgotten about battlefield 4. from day one drive club single player content worked but it's online needed some work and it was fixed

and let's not even get started on all the free after launch dlc which ms knows nothing about since forza season passes cost almost as much as a new game

blackblades2846d ago

Somebody tried to make a point here but ended up being pointed to the ground.

TheColbertinator2846d ago

@itsmebryan

You clearly lack any proper or updated information on the subject.

donthate2846d ago

neutral:

What support for DriveClub?

With the horrible launch and missing content, it's amazing you got that in the first place. Reminds me of SFV, also another game that released with a horrid launch to be fixed later masquerading as "support".

When Forza releases, I know I'm getting a full game! Because next year there is another game out, so MS better damn send out a working game and judging by critics, Forza Horizon 3 is this generations best racing game ever. I'm glad I get to enjoy it.

SniperControl2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

Hey donthate

Kinda reminds me of Halo mcc and Recore...........

Berenwulf2846d ago

It was never really broken. They had problems with the servers and online play which they fixed shortly after the release. The single player was always fantastic since the beginning. They had also such a great season pass with a ton of content.

Xbox fanboys will continue to downplay Driveclub for its initial online issues but failed to recognize it was already playable online in a months time and before the end of that December, they already patched in the promised weather. All in less than 2 months after release.

And they will defend MCC no matter what although it was still broken 6 months after launch.

DC is a solid game and a fun game to play off and online. Arguably still the best looking racer out there especially on console. Fanboys will downplay it for being a closed circuit racer but hey, not everybody is a fan of an unrealistic open world racer either!

Aeery2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

You miss a lot of things and DC is still one of the best racing game of this gen (imo). Challenging, fast and awesome to watch.

freshslicepizza2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

who exactly is underestamating the power of the ps4 pro and why is a developer WHO ISN"T taking advantage of the ps4 pro for its original game talking about it?

we all know the main reason the ps4 pro exists is to help boost psvr and if they didn't have to worry about the original ps4 then the game would not have concessions like less cars and less visual effects.

It was in their add and trailer that it was a Forza killer

C-H-E-F2846d ago

@itsmebryan
That's really interesting because Driveclub outsold Horizon 2. and was the better racer IMO especially after the patches etc. were added. The funny thing about driveclub is I played it offline first then played it online. So by the time I got online they already patched it up and it was functioning. I always enjoy my games offline first because I know once I go online I will never really want to go back to enjoy the offline experience especially with racers.

XStation4pio_Pro2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

Driveclub might be an ok game but it's certainly not a gearhead racing fans game. It's just too shallow and forgiving. The truth hurts some of these people. They made a lot of improvements on DC (I own it and am friends with people who worked on it) but it's still more of a project Gotham racing than a forza or gran tursimo competitor. Even forza horizon (the arcade forza) is exponentially more fun with more depth while not being as technical in the driving sim so DC loses there too. It just looks cool and that's about it.

KickSpinFilter2846d ago

Ya it released broken, but since the server update this game has been awesome, it's really a great game just a piss poor start. DriveClub VR is getting pretty good news out of people who have played it, and sweet there is a demo of it with 15 other VR games.

IamTylerDurden12846d ago

DC wasn't broken at launch, it actually performed well. However, the servers were broken at launch, big difference. I know you never played the game but do some research.

itsmebryan2846d ago (Edited 2846d ago )

@C-H-E-F
Justin Beber sales a lot more than other artist does that make him the best? Sales is not the only way to judge the quality of a product. How do you compare DC a game with very little content at launch ( only 50 cars) and missing the much talked about weather conditions to Horizon 2? Horizon has hundreds of cars that can be customized and upgraded and is a open world racing game with much more content. DC would be better compared to a track racing game like Forza 5 that even though it was released a year earlier have more content , is closer to a sim racer with customizing that effect car performs and looks and runs a solid 1080P @60FPS and DC is an arcade racer that only run 30fps. I was very disappointed as were others of this so, called FORZA killer.

Also why do you feel DC is a better racer?

Saranya2846d ago

I can see PS fans spam dislike to your comment.

Wallstreet372846d ago

Stop with the hyperbolic bs. To begin with Drive Club sp was not broken so the campaign worked flawlessly. What was broken was the online and months later it was working quite well and it s an awesome game, for many the best racer this gen. It got bashed for broken online that was fixed within months yet a game like Halo that had issues in campaign and who's online was trash and didn't work for over a year got a free pass.

Didn't come close to what? Foh with that bs in most aspects such as graphics, dynamic weather/cycles it exceeded Forza so let's not take your view as gospel or facts.

Kryptix2846d ago

Why are the Xbox fanboys worrying about a game that has been fixed & had updates plus free DLC when they should worry about that broken mess Recore. I'm waiting for my Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on PC to be fixed, too.

Driveclub as it stands today is the best racer this gen and DC VR is getting loads of praise by everyone who's played it.

porkChop2846d ago

I'm still waiting for a very important explanation. Before DriveClub released, Shuhei Yoshida said the game would not support VR because it was "too fast." Fast forward to today, and we're being told that not only will DriveClub support VR after all, we'll have to pay an extra $40 for it. Saying a game won't support something that players want, and then selling a separate version of the game that supports the feature people were asking for, is far from ok.

Ju2845d ago

It's a new game. What are you on about? Nothing in live is free. Get over it.

Red_Renegade2845d ago

drive club isn't exactly supporting vr. that's why it's a whole new game that you have to pay for. don't be one of those silly conspiracy people.
