    [UPDATE: CRISIS AVERTED]Driveclub PS+ upgrade is a bargain.

    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.
    http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2014/...-plus-edition/





    Original RANT:
    If you download driveclub from PS+ version and then decide to upgrade, at almost full price might I add [$49.99/42.99], and your PS+ expires, you lose access to the game you paid almost full price.

    This is ****ing, disgusting, **** the swear filter. I'm better off buying the full game from the US psn store for 35.

    I implore everyone to ignore the "upgrade option" and tweet yosp or whoever gives a ****.

    This is not like buying a game with a PS plus discount where its yours forever regardless of PS+ membership, you are essentially locking yourself in to a subscription game. F*** YOU SONY. First you refuse video playback and now this?

    “If you’re an active PlayStation Plus subscriber and have been playing the PlayStation Plus Edition, but decide you want the full DRIVECLUB experience, you can purchase a one-time upgrade for €49.99/$49.99/42.99. This will give you access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events, as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription remains active.”

    I'm not doubting the value of PS+, PS+ is awesome.


    But this particular case is really scummy, unless chris brown the project manager is new, and doesn't understand what he just typed.

    Agreed.

    The virtue of 'upgrading' to the full game should not be lost when your sub expires. Heck you don't lose games when you buy them on a PS+ discount.

    So the fact you get a discounted DriveClub while on PS+ shouldn't prevent you.

    They should fix.

    So don't let the subscription expire. It is a measly $50 per year. Or just purchase the full retail version.

    I wouldn't let my sub expire anyway but this is still wrong and will only hurt the overall sales of the game as those that wished to trial it first will now be more cautious about getting it. Sony need to fix it.

    just to put this out there... currently... any game you BUY WITH A PS+ DISCOUNT can be played when PS+ expires... why that wouldnt happen with driveclub shouldnt even be a big worry.

    Its blown out of proportion. DONT WORRY... if you purchased the game, regardless of discount, you wont need PS+ to continue playing... its only if you want to continue playing the free version....

    that's how it should be. It should upgrade to the full version, that can be played after expiration of PS+, but chris brown is dodging the question.

    I sincerely doubt this ONE game is going to be the exception... theres hundreds of games that have been discounted with PS+ across PS3/PS4/PSvita, and not one of them expires if your subscription runs out.

    yeah might be a glitch and it does seem a little stupid if true. however, the fact that it would cost about the same to upgrade or buy it new, isn't a big deal. they can't afford to give a big chunk of the game. we measly pay $50 for all the crazy **** we get for it. my first year was paid for the moment i got my sub. that's ****ing insane. right now i have too many games and i've bought some discounted games. i'm a happy camper.

    The price isn't peoples problem, it's "This will give you access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events, as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription remains active." that is the problem. We shouldn't just sweep it under the rug and be all "Why would I unsub anyways?", or just assume that isn't the case until it's clarified.

    So, I'm reaching here, because the wording isn't necessarily clear... but... Driveclub is a SOCIAL game. Is it possible that perhaps they mean you won't have access to such things as the tour events if you do, indeed, let your PS+ membership expire? PS+ IS required, after all, for online play.

    Well, definitely sucks if true or they don't change it. But I imagine it's more of confusing language as it doesn't make sense the upgrade wouldn't work without ps+ sub. As I, and along with just about everyone see 'upgrading' as buying it.

    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.

    Holy crap you sound like me when you get upset.

    Just calm down....breathe. I'm serious too....calm down. I'm sure it's just a hiccup and when ppl like you catch these things then tend to fix it pretty quick.

    Now if that doesn't happen and they keep it this way....then I just won't buy the game...yeah, they can kiss my ass.

    But it's no reason to hype your blood pressure over....as my mom has always said to me about my anger "It's not health. Do you want to die mad?"

    I'm going to be flamed for this but I've read it and still don't feel ripped off. Maybe they should do away with the 49.99 upgrade. Either buy it or play the limited free one.

    If they get rid of the obsolete "upgrade option" and just offered a $10 discount for a full version, that would be much better.

    It does sound like a huge rip off. The dev is on the it, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt and see if they fix it soon.

    After my confusion from all of the misunderstandings wore off, I too believe that this "upgrade" is absolutely a rip off. And that really should be hands down unanimous.
