    Also if you upgrade to the full version from the PS+ edition you keep the game even after your subscription expires

    You mean if you spend $110 on one game?

    Oh, I thought you meant PS+ version that is bought with the discount AND the retail version.

    Small change in the terms and conditions for the upgraded PS+ version and I'm still ... reluctant to it.

    Looks fantastic as it is, guess it will be again to the drive model to convince me to buy it.


    Edit: Also not sure about the whole 60fps issue, I mean I get that people want it on simulators due to potential input lag and or other issues, but this like a social game and more of a party game so it's not necessary.

    The more I look into the issue of 30fps vs 60fps, the more it seems like a justification from "master race" people to justify bigger expenses in more complicated systems against the simplicity of consoles. I can tell the difference and is noticeable for everyone at this point, but it is not necessary to make better games, that's only down to the design of the game itself.

    Well done Sony for admitting they were wrong and changing the plan.

    Those gameplay video's....Gameplay looks pretty bad, Graphics look good and Sound seems ok. I still have a bad feeling about this game. I think PCars will wipe the floor with it.

    PCars is not in any way shape or form rivalling this game.

    Did you watch the videos that are on this page right above the gameplay videos?

    I really liked (amongst other things) how the headlights cast the shadows of cars ahead. Perhaps a small touch, but important at that level of graphical detail.

    This has nothing to do with P-Cars, heck is even more close to The Crew or an hypothetical FH2.

    Getting rather tired of all this people who wants everything to be a :censored:ing sim, not everything has to be a god damn sim, the idea is to be fun, if people don't understand that they should just stop bitching.

    We had this discussion on the GRID Autosport thread too, it seems like by having real life cars and locations this suddenly entails a game must be realistic, it's a totally silly argument. What's wrong with a mix that produces a fun outcome?



    Some people forget the legendary ancestors that made the racing genre big.

    Indeed, all racing games have their place for me so long as they do what they're trying to do well.

    No they looked a little odd so i passed, Any good?

    Still not seeing PGR in this game which for some reason everyone is saying it's the game closest to.

    Well, they are telling of what this game is trying to achieve, it's not supposed to be a sim or anything like that. It's supposed to be a fun, socially-connected, mini-challenge based adrenaline ride from start to finish. That's their aim rather than a focus on the more traditional racing experience.

    So.. @1:38, we can choose "weather" too? I thought Evo wasnt adding it? Or maybe is something more simplistic than rain or snow? In anyway: \o/

    You can add the Spyker C8 in there and the Audi A1 quattro.

    Guess well done on sorting PS+ problem, Sony.

    I don't like those explanation videos for Driveclub. They sound a bit like disclaimers at the end of a medicine ads. Perhaps the dynamic menus aren't quite ready. :)

    I realise that it's not a full out sim fair enough i did not expect it to be but after all the "this is the new PGR" i expected to play so much better, But really im not even seeing a arcade/sim...Im just seeing a mess, Even if it's trying to be sim/arcade/fun the rules behind it dont really say arcade... It's a bit like Codemasters who have been lost through the past 3 or 4 years ...They want to make a game for the casuals and hardcore it it ends up that really no one likes it....Hope im wrong as DC is why i bought a PS4 but looking at it today im really struggling to see what's good about it?

    Shareholders telling the devs what to do? Wouldnt bet against it.
