I have it and it's very average.

Oh... that went right over my head.

Heh got a faster time than Hapi for once! I will revel in that for the time it takes him to find the track and beat me

Edit: is it me or does the game now have a black border or maybe I didn't notice before? Doesn't seem to be a way to change it either.

I don't have DC but I've seen streams that have a black boarder and this was an issue with MLB The Show as well. You fix it in the PS4 settings, not the in game settings.

Go to settings on the PS4 dashboard - Sound and Screen - Display Area Settings; adjust to fill your screen. That should fix it. (Game will need to be restarted for changes to take place.)

Does that hose up other games though?

Don't think so. The setting is there so the PS4 knows how big your screen's viewable area is but, not every app/game uses this setting. Most games, to date, have a similar setting within the game, it's meant to control overscan and make sure any HUDs are always visible. I'm not sure if the PS3 had this setting but, the way I figure is that devs can now have their game call back to the PS4 system settings instead of building this setting into each game.

Problem is that it seems that some devs don't code for this properly and it creates a black boarder around the image instead of just affecting the HUDs. MLB The Show did this as well. The Golf Club is one game I know that uses this setting correctly. In TGC, that setting only moves the in-game HUD around but leaves the rest of the image alone so, no black boarders no matter where you set the system setting.

Shut up, I'm not trolling, went into Walmart to buy the new xman Blu Ray and DC was in open boxes behind the counter, I asked them why and they said they pulled it. In Canada if you go to buy DC online it now says it's not available for purchase.

Here's is the DriveClub webpage on the PSN store. I click on it and it shows the exact image you posted above, with the "Not available for purchase" message.

Why? Because I've already purchased the game, as explained when I click on the "Tell me more" tab shown in the same image. However, if I log out of the PSN store on my PC, the page then shows the game is available for $59.99 ($49.99 with PS+).

Here is a link to Walmart Canada's webpage for DC. The game is for sale, listed in stock to purchase online, and shows it as being in stock at a bunch of retail Walmarts if you type in various Canadian postal codes (i.e., L5N 1P9 for Ontario stores).

So please, just stop.

Ahh I see that for online now, you have to click tell me more to get to the buy page, but it was still was still behind the counter at wallmart and that's what they said to me, I'm still waiting to try it before I'm buying it, I hope it's great cause I've been waiting for this game.

Based on reactions I've read here and elsewhere, you are either going to love it or hate it. Doesn't seem to be a lot of middle ground with this one...

(Note: I'm ignoring the "I love the game but these servers SUCK" folks which is a large part of the "love it" crowd. And it is very understandable at this point, even though I do love the game).

Saw in a GAF thread that there will be a USB music player in the 2.0 PS4 release. Yeah! Will be interesting to see how it works... gotta say it is weird that we seemingly can't copy it to the hard drive... but it is better than nothing. That said I've come to like most of the DriveClub tracks, having been forced to listen to them so much.

I am surprised I haven't been kicked off the AVS team yet! I haven't had much time to play lately and majority of my progress was before I was added. I don't think it retroactively adds your experience to the team.

Good...I keep seeing your dam name above mine on the leaderboard. I might get some time to beat your scores. Gauntlet tossed!

Apparently the outage isn't affecting the (better functioning) DC servers so I may just try some online tonight if it works.

haha, and I thought I was average at best. I struggle offline on quite a few events.

I have yet to play online. Somebody on our team did a majority of the leveling. W ho is it, "brooks" or something like that?

So far I only see you, Hapi, and Lazy (who ditched the game) so it's not exactly a hotbed of competition. Once all this online stuff kicks in properly it will be pretty cool.

Yeah, it should be pretty cool. The small teams of 6 actually mean you can feel like you are a contributing member as well, even though I don't feel that way with 4-5 that we have so far.

I just want to race together online as a team or at least at the same time together.

plus once photo mode and weather hits we can set up some awesome pictures.

I guess logically online photo mode isn't going to work since it would have to freeze everybody?

Hey now, I'm not that mean. Plus, with all of the connectivity issues, it's hard to fault anyone for not contributing...

I just don't get online much as it is. Hope to play tomorrow night and some on the weekend. Racing together though should be a blast.

I finally found a car with the cockpit view that I liked playing in "Savage" I think. It has a window on the roof.

It's still on the hard drive and I can play it. If I go to the store it says to buy it. So I can still beat your times.

That did it. Can't believe I didn't notice it before. I kind of think maybe the last patch messed something up but those who already had it set probably don't notice? Don't think I've played since the last update. Who knows....

I had a new experience last night. I was playing one of the short circuit tracks in Canada, doing a single event time trial, with random everything. The computer chose a cloudy day a little before noon with (I think) 15x time acceleration. It was pretty gloomy my first few laps, but on my third lap I noticed "god rays" off in the distance, over by the downtown area. Woah. Had not seen that before in the game. Although far off, they looked cool. And it seemed like the break in the clouds was headed my way...

A few more laps and all of a sudden the gloom lifted and the sun peeked through the clouds, with the entire track being lit up as the shadow from the clouds moved off. WOW. It was an amazing experience. Just like being outside on a cloudy day when that happens... totally changed everything.

(I promptly crashed).

I'm in the club... my psn is Froachie. I'm enjoying the game quite a bit and look forward to racing as a team as soon as the online issues are worked out. I will keep on grinding through the single player tour and try to contribute as many points as I can.

Anyone in the club, feel free to send me a friend request. Online hasnt been working too well, so I don't know who is in the club, except for Brooks who invited me.
