    Official:Driveclub delayed, PSN+ replacement is Contrast


    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/...veclub-update/

    SCE Worldwide Studios and the team at Evolution Studios have made the difficult decision to delay the release of DRIVECLUB and DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition until early 2014. DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision — and I’m fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.

    This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members’ Instant Game Collection for launch. To be clear, DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released. For the PS4 launch, in addition to Resogun, I’m pleased to announce that Contrast, the highly anticipated game from Compulsion Games will also be available to PlayStation Plus members for free as part of Instant Game Collection. If you’re not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama. Please check out the trailer below. I’m sure you’ll agree that it is unlike anything you will have played before.

    We’re also offering members access to an exclusive “Open Weekend” trial of Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer on December 28-29.

    We understand that the delay is disappointing news, but can assure you that the reason we have made this decision is to ensure that when DRIVECLUB launches, it will realize the next-gen racing vision. And PlayStation 4 gamers will have no shortage of titles to play this year. At launch alone, we have Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4 to name but a few, as well as the incredible list of indie games coming to PS4. A broad portfolio of games will be available on PS4 before the end of the year, and with games such as inFAMOUS Second Son, The Order 1886, Destiny, Watch Dogs and now DRIVECLUB coming next year, the strength of the software line-up on PS4 is unprecedented.

    DRIVECLUB is a really ambitious racing title and the game is looking stunning. The extra time we’re giving the team means the visuals and overall experience are only going to get better. We can assure you that it will be worth the wait.
    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"
    --Kaz Hirai, CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment

    I don't think Contrast is a like-for-like day one replacement. They should give us PS+'ers Knack instead. Not an Indy.

    I'd agree with this.

    But still - I'd rather finished/polished/best version possible than not. Same goes for WD. Lucky we're not short on racing games. And if you're racing guy you're probably also/otherwise getting FM5 with the Xbone anyway.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    I think Need for Speed: Rivals for the PS4 on Nov. 19 will take care of my driving game needs until Driveclub comes out. And people have played it on the PC and the PS4 with the experience they were almost indistinguishable from each other.

    PS4's Need for Speed Rivals more visually impressive than PC version

    I think Knack will be a Free one down the road. Its ok...it isn't going to not be on PS+ just not at launch....there are plenty of games on Sony's console when you factor in all the free to play games too. I think they needed to get the social aspect/multiplayer locked down and its better to do that right when the game hits then have a disaster and try to lure people in later. The racing market was already very tight this christmas....Forza, NFS, GT...give it some life of it's own this way. Plus....Sony is selling tons of preorders...this just means when the finally have PS4s on the shelf and they really really have to start marketing them and compete...it will hit with a combo and not just a haymaker at launch. Having Infamous SS and this game coming out after Christmas should continue to boost the console into the Spring.

    Sony develops games....and they have some good ones lined up for us. GT is a huge game and I'm sure a lot of driving enthusiast wasn't quite ready to jump next gen and miss a GT game. This way they can ease into next gen. A lot of racers in the market...I wish I had the game because it looked great...but I'm going to be around....I'll play it when its ready....and I would rather it be ready than half-assed.

    So PS4 launch line up is looking less appealing as launch nears, they keep on delaying games, I guess XBone will be getting the upper hand on game line up now. What's worse is that they'll be replacing with an even crappier game than Resogun.

    It's not about launch titles though....for me at least. I'm in this for the long haul and god only know when you'll be able to get one once the first shipment is done.

    PS4 might not have the "biggest" brand names at the day of launch. But from what I've seen....there more than enough coming during the next 3 or 4 months.

    Besides....you're going to pay the same amount on Nov 15 as you would if you bought it 3 or 4 months down the road for any of those games....why not get it Nov 15 and in the meantime just get to know the PS4 and play a couple of launch games.

    It's not like it can hurt.

    Oh well, disappointing I guess but it just means I'll have more time for Killzone SF and any other games I pick up.

    Awesome. Taking a leaf out of Steams book and allowing free/open weekends. Hope they do more of this.

    Might just spend the money upgrading my PC now.

    Now I don't have a reason to get up early on November 15th trying to find a PS4. There are absolutely no games I want for the system that will be released on launch that I want now. Cool! Saves me money. lls

    WOW way to $#@! up PS4s launch. Xbox One has DR3, Ryse, and Forza as three major titles. PS4 now has only Killzone and Knack, both of which have been mostly MEH by a large majority. Well I guess I'm going to be back to seeing tons of Playstation has no games meme's for another generation.....smh.

    Don't group Killzone in there.

    Knack looks mediocre, but impressions of Killzone have been very positive. It may not be the most ambitious game, since it's a launch title, but it seems to be high-quality for what it's doing.

    But yes, the Xbone seems to have the better launch line-up now, unless you're really into indie titles, which PS4 has loads more of at launch.

    Forza 5 is the only X1 exclusive launching that I would be interested in. But yeah disappointing news but if more time in the oven produces a better game then I'm ok with it. At least I have KZ SF and maybe I'll pick up NFS Rivals or some other 3rd party game. Plus I'll download Warframe.

    Xbone and PS4 both have bad launch lineups. It's essentially Killzone vs. Forza. Knack is $#@!, Ryse is bigger $#@!, and DR3 is generic zombie $#@!.

    If I were to get a PS4 at launch, which I won't be able to, the only game I'd get is probably Fifa 14.

    Oh I myself have always been looking to get Killzone. I liked all the others installments. I was just meaning that overall it seems like Xbox's lineup has been receiving a much higher amount of praise. Ryse looks amazing now, best looking launch game imo. If it wasn't for games like Infamous, Deep Down, and the Order, I would probably cancel my PS4 order now and switch to Xbox at launch.

    It looks Spring will be the prime time to get a PS4.

    By then we'll likely have available:

    -DriveClub
    -inFamous: Second Son
    -Watch Dogs
    -Destiny
    -Diablo III
    -The Witness
    -Planetside 2
    -Deep Down
