DriveClub (PS4) - Page 2

post #31 of 268
Very nice! The first two Motorstorm games are a lot of fun. I can't wait to see some gameplay at E3.

I read it is only 30fps though, that is a bummer.

The developer hasn't commented on the frame rate one way or the other as far as I know.
post #33 of 268
While I love 60fps, I can deal with 30 as long as it is actually locked in.

You are right, I looked for the quote and was wrong. They haven't mentioned it. Crossing fingers for 60fps as I certainly notice the difference when I play games, especially racing. Sure, it doesn't stop me from buying if 30fps.


Edit: I notice a little pop in, but nothing horrible.

Here's a NeoGAF .gif of the in-game footage. Looks amazing!

Impressive. I can't tell though, are they trying to go for the sim route or something like Forza Horizon? If it's the former, great but if it's the latter I'm actually more interested.

According to their twitter DRIVECLUB will be playable at E3:

I didn't listen with the audio on but I wish there was more gameplay footage. It looks very nice at least from what they're showing off but I'd like to see more of it. smile.gif

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this post.

I can't believe they'd expend all the effort it takes to make a game like GT6, and then have it release on PS3 during the PS4 launch window. IMO Sony is shooting themselves in the foot with this move.

It's very much on-topic. Furthermore if you're so aghast at it, use the report function and let the moderators handle it instead of making it even worse. There's no need for about a half dozen people around these videogame forums here at AVS to continually derail threads claiming this stuff.

If someone violates the forum policies here, report it and let the moderators handle it.

Take your own advice if you think it is so special. If someone wants to delve into sales battle discussions between two games that aren't even sold on the same system, it takes a second to simply create a new thread for that purpose rather than steer things off-topic here.

Nah I don't believe it, this one is too close to real life. Unless it's just the camera angles playing a nice trick, it's quite a bit better than those more recent gif and screenshots you posted Joe
post #42 of 268
Rumors is it'll be playable at E3. And yes, it is ingame.

(smaller resolution of the gif compresses some defects and makes it look better IMO)
post #43 of 268
Is there any info out about the career mode? I don't really know if I'm that interested in all the club stuff and just want to race against the AI and unlock cars and races.

Wow, that video confirms how sweet the graphics are in this game. The cars and environment are getting eerily close to real life. Too bad the character models look cartoony. tongue.gif
post #46 of 268
I wonder how stripped the "PS Plus edition" will be. I'm guessing a limited collection of cars and tracks. Still, pretty neat to get it on day one.....I just hope "PS Plus edition" doesnt become a trend.
post #47 of 268
Probably just to make up until they get gaikai trials up.

PS, how do we spell it? errr

Initial details on the PS+ edition of this game:
Quote:
The PS Plus edition of DriveClub, revealed yesterday, will – according to Evolution – be the full version of the game in terms of features and mechanics.

However, it will launch with a cut-back number of tracks and cars.

This’ll mean that players will be immediately able to jump into the game, form clubs and compete online.

I asked whether that would mean more cars and tracks would appear as DLC to bulk up the game to the ‘full’ version but didn’t get an official comment.

The PS Plus version will be part of the Plus subscription.

The game handles great – it’s really smart and plays well despite the version on show being just 35% complete.

But more on that soon.

^^Booo!

Drat. So a pretty full-fledged demo I guess. It's enough to keep it from being a day one buy, I can get some other launch title instead. Maybe they have confidence in it's awesomeness and expect that people will upgrade.


Unless they buy Forza...biggrin.gif
post #51 of 268
Depends. If they take the GT5 route and make like 1000 cars and 60 track variations, there might be more than enough content to go around.

Did they say if this was open world ala burnout paradise? Or is it sticking to known courses?
post #52 of 268
So the free edition is akin to the Essentials version of Forza then. Not a bad thing as if you want more cars I'm sure they'll be happy to sell them to you. As long as I get a good variety that's all I care about.
post #53 of 268
Yeah, I mean it's better than nothing. It's probably as much driveclub as I'll ever be interested to play. But I'm not going to appreciate it if PS plus morphs into a service where you get glorified demos instead of full games.
post #54 of 268

For most of the PS4's first year, PS+ will have to be a service that offers indie games and limited versions of full games.

Why? It has no library yet. It's unrealistic to expect full priced games on day one to be free - we never really got that on the PS3 or Vita. Besides Stacking, a small indie game, did we get any other full games for free on that game's launch day?

Trying to be realistic, one thing I would like to see with PS+ and the PS4 early on is price reductions on most if not all of Sony's first-party retail games sold over the PSN. If we saw, say, a $10 discount on day-one releases of Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack ,and the full version of DriveClub, it would definitely be appreciated by members.

Well, the positive way to look at it is to say this is a launch title so there's more incentive to make you want to make a full purchase versus what we normally get with PS+ right now, which are full games that are aged somewhat. I'm with you though I hope it doesn't turn into glorified demos. I doubt it though you can already download a timed full game to essentially "demo" so this is probably a unique situation.

Yeah, I didn't expect much more, it's definitely a nice perk. They can't give away everything for free from the start. I think if they're going to start diluting the value of the plus stuff, it'll be a gradual process that will take years. But a few years from now, if we're primarily getting stuff like just the killzone MP with a limited number of maps and guns, timed trials, and a few indie games....I'll still take it, but I'll be disappointed.
post #57 of 268
You would hope that they still offer the free games as it's definitely a reason to keep paying them 50 bucks a year. I think if anything there might be some restriction to what free games we get (i.e. aged more than a year, retail has to hit a certain msrp, etc.). Who knows though the service could be a boon to indie games, something I have no problem with. If that promotes indie games and they can have a fair revenue sharing model with them to offset the free offering on + I see no reason why that part of the service can't take off. These developers are already not making a whole lot of money anyway on indie sales so this might be a positive for them. Maybe do a rotation on a bi-weekly basis with it being free for two weeks and then once that ends a percentage off for late comers so those that miss the free game might be more inclined to pick it up. Who knows, just throwing stuff out there. I can't see many big name franchises going this route (first and second party non with standing) but if they're smart they won't decrease the value we already get. Besides, they're charging for MP now so there needs to be that extra value that even + now might not represent to someone.

Some more details are coming out of E3:

Quote:
- So, DriveClub. The devs /are/ aiming for 60fps. PS Plus version will be full game (single player too) but lack of cars/tracks.

- Dedicated servers mean Evolution can make changes on the fly, without game updates.

- No performance customisation, but you can apply club badges to your cars. Points won go with you when you leave a club, which is smart.

- Devs described the game as using a 'service model' approach. Content pushed regularly to gamers.

Also, a NeoGAF member is at E3 and says he asked the developer about PS3 wheel support for the game. He was told that they will work! Hopefully that's true; we'll know for sure well before launch.

Bummer, I like performance modifications even if they're of the more superficial kind like Forza Horizon. I don't necessarily need to worry about going crazy in-depth, there's games like GT for that but if you've played Forza Horizon they do a good job of giving those performance upgrades, making their difference noticeable, but not punishing you for not knowing or caring about tweaking it like the more sim-like racers do. As it stands though that's not really a deal breaker, PGR didn't have them and it's one of the best non-sim series to date so hopefully the rest of the game compensates.

The lack of performance upgrades is there to keep the online racing as balanced as possible. Classes are probably easier to deal with and a point system, like GT, is exploitable. Devs figure if you want to go faster, earn or buy a faster car.
