    Think it might just be easier to buy the full game lol, still no excuse and no doubt people are going to feel ripped off! It doesn't bother me that there is not a lot of PS4 content at the minute, the system is still in it's early days with not a mass amount of games available for it anyway so there is not going to be a lot of content! PS+ has more than justified it's price with all the great Vita games and discounts you can get!

    Kinda have to if they want to sell the PS+ free games idea on PS4, which is a major selling point. At least until PS4 has its own catalogue of games to use for that promotion. Think we'll see a few others like it if they lend themselves to it (GT7 Prologue sounds nailed on for the same treatment).

    I'm glad my ps plus doesn't expire until 2017. And when Driveclub releases, I may buy it, but only disc copy. I don't buy digital ps4 games.

    Chris brown is an idiot as product manager, no doubt he was the brains behind the original hoodwink. I'm glad sony came to their senses. to all those saying "told you so", shut up. Sony have changed the policy. It wasn't the miscommunication you were trying to portray it as. read the bolded


    UPDATE: Our priority for DRIVECLUB is to enable you to play and enjoy everything it has to offer and PlayStation recognises that the prior plan for DRIVECLUB entitlement for the upgrade to the PS Plus edition was not appropriate. As a result, we have adjusted the PlayStation Plus terms for DRIVECLUB.

    Now, If you intend on downloading DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition, and upgrading to the full game experience, you will have access to the full game even if your PlayStation Plus subscription runs out.

    I do think it was probably a miscommunication, but that press release of "we love listening to our fans" is better PR than "our intern messed up and we fired him."


    Meh, who knows and who cares, correct conclusion has been made!

    exactly what I was thinking. Seems the "panties in a wad" threshold is pretty low so far this gen. Guess that is a good thing.

    couldn't rep. nicely put. then again, it's always been low with Sony fans. i agree, it's not a bad thing but sheesh lol.

    it was stupid for sure, i'd just avoid it and just inform others. especially since there's a WORKAROUND ****, i wouldn't care half the time if i had a workaround.

    Even if you can still use it without ps+ subscription it'll probably be cheaper to buy a physical copy second hand. I assume the saves will work..
    Apparently not

    Of course, you could always simply purchase the full game from a shop or over PSN. However, this won't let you carry over your progress.

    That's how PS+ normally works. If you buy a game with a PS+ discount you keep it if your subscription expires.

    what their logic here was likely this...and i'm still not saying it's a good one but it somehat makes sense.

    they are giving us a new AAA title (base version) with our subscription that we pay $50 for. keep that in mind.

    the base version's value is likely around $15-$20 because you can play it as long as you want, just not enough cars/tracks. heck even GT prologues were twice that.

    so they want to think of the tracks/cars as "addons", not as in, "unlocking the full version of the game" or "upgrading".

    because any other game that has ever been given to us, would work the same way...if you get Borderlands 2 from PS+, you buy the addons, doesn't mean you got the game itself.

    i know it's a grey area but that was probably what they were thinking. this way they can keep their PS+ subs up. but yeah, not when it would backfire like this.

    though i don't think we should be expecting to see more titles like this one supported in the future...because this hurts them. it would mean the subscription value just dropped lower and they will lose money as well. because those that will buy the full version, may not have a reason to keep PS+...unless you wanna play online...however, i have heard people talk about not renewing their PS+ all the time so i'm sure that happens.

    that's why i made this comment earlier in the thread,

    they don't have to give this to us, this was just a nice little bonus. so especially since it didn't work. i doubt we'll ever see a deal like this again.

    Are you crazy? This was a bigger issue than Ukraine and the missing Nigerian School girls.

    I had EVEN started writing a letter; and as any other Brit will tell you, that's as serious as it gets.

    I was about to think they didn't deserve first place and 100+million sales, I guess they do.

    This is looking a lot like Forza: Horizon. I think that is what they're going for too. A nice inbetween, there is Gran Turismo for proper simulation, NFS + others for arcade.
    It being similar to F:H is exactly what I'm looking for. Think I'll treat the ps+ version as a demo, and if it feels like F:H, I'll buy the disc version.
