Over a year has passed since the PlayStation 4 came out on November 15, 2013. Since then, it’s seen its share of successes and failures. Many games, both big-name and indie, have been released for the PS4 over the past year. Fans debate all the time about what the best games are, but which PS4 purchases do players most regret?
Some users on Reddit got together to discuss this, and some common patterns emerged. Destiny, Watch Dogs, and Driveclub came up a lot. All three games were highly-anticipated, with bold promises for what the new generation of gaming was capable of. Destiny and Watch Dogs were also widely considered disappointments, and Driveclub suffered from multiplayer issues that took a while to resolve. Whether it’s a result of too much hype, misleading marketing, or unrealistic expectations, many PS4 users regret purchasing these two games.
To a lesser extent, Thief and Battlefield 4 were also named often. Thief got a lot of mixed reviews, and the general complaint from fans is that it just wasn’t fun. Battlefield 4, meanwhile, was game plagued with so many glitches and bugs that many people found it unplayable. On a similar note, several people regret purchasing Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Knack, one of the launch titles, also came up for reasons similar to those that led to its negative reviews—its high difficulty and lack of innovation turned off fans who expected something different from it.
Other games were mentioned, of course, but these are the ones about which many fans are in agreement: Destiny, Watch Dogs, Driveclub, Thief, Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity, and Knack.

There is a fair amount of excitement for Driveclub, especially now that it has a release date (October 7, which seems to be a popular release date this year). Check out the latest official trailer, which focuses on the game’s audio.
But if you’re more interested in specific gameplay details than in the audio, don’t go away. Sony also released a short interview with the developers, Evolution Studios. Check it out to learn about cars, clubs, and more.
That’s not the only interview, though, and it’s definitely not the longest. PlayStation Access recently accepted questions from fans and took them to Evolution Studios for a 20-minute Q&A session. From the tracks to the cars to the music and beyond, this video covers quite a bit of information.
Are there any questions about Driveclub you wish you could ask the devs? More importantly, perhaps, do you like what you’ve seen and heard about this PS4-exclusive so far?Tags: driveclub, interview, ps4, trailer, video

For fans of racing games, Driveclub is one of the most anticipated PS4 exclusives in the upcoming months. It will release on October 7, and Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has revealed several interesting details through Twitter. He also posted a link to new gameplay video that takes you through the forests of Canada.
We already knew you could customize your car, but thanks to Rustchynsky, we now know there’s a limited degree of character customization, as well. In response to questions from fans, he confirmed the ability to choose either a male or female racer and said there is “a small range of outfits” to pick from.

Now, you might not have caught it in the video, but Reddit users noticed that at about the 1:21 mark, as the sunlight crosses the windshield, you can see a touch of moisture on the windshield. We aren’t sure yet if this points to larger weather effects present in the game, or if it’s just a neat visual feature.
Are you looking forward to Driveclub?Tags: driveclub, gameplay, info, ps4, videos

Just when we thought the controversy surrounding the free PS+ version of Driveclub was over, Evolution Studios dropped a bombshell: for $49.99, you could upgrade your PS+ version to the full version of the game, but you would still only have access to it for as long as you were a PS+ subscriber. It would take an additional $10 to make the game yours permanently.
This did not go over well.
Fans launched an online social media campaign to convince Sony to reverse the policy, and Game Director Paul Rustchynsky promised to investigate. Well, whether it was the uproar of fans or Rustchynsky’s queries, Sony changed its mind today:
“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.”
This news should please fans. Additionally, we’ve got a new trailer to show you, which explains how Driveclub’s clubs work. Enjoy!
So, what do you think about Driveclub so far? And just to make sure there’s no confusion, if you get the free PS+ version and upgrade it to the full version, the full version will be yours to keep even if you stop being a member of PS+.Tags: driveclub, info, playstation plus, ps4, trailer

There has been some confusion over the free Playstation Plus version of Driveclub, so we hope we can clear things up. Back when Driveclub was first announced, there were very few details available about the content in the free version available to PS+ subscribers, but a lot people got the impression that it would be basically the same as the main game, with just a little less content. One of the things that helped this impression was when the Driveclub devs said you’d be able to get the Platinum PS4 trophy even with the free version.
In light of the recent announcement that the free PS+ version of Driveclub will contain only 10 cars and 5 tracks with 11 variants, and that this isn’t enough to finish the campaign, a lot of fans have felt betrayed and lied to.
In response to this, Game Director Paul Rustchynsky confirmed that the original statement still stands. You can get the Platinum trophy in the PS+ version.
Don’t forget, the free PS+ version of Driveclub comes with all other features of the main game. Additionally, you’ll be able to pay a discounted price to upgrade to the full version, although we don’t know how much it will cost yet. We’ll be interested to see how this all plays out.Tags: driveclub, playstation plus, ps4, trophy

As promised, new information has been released about the PS4-exclusive Driveclub. When its release date (October 7, which is definitely shaping up to be a big day for video game releases) was announced, Game Director Paul Rustchynsky said we’d have to wait until this week to hear details about the frame rate.
Driveclub will run at a locked 30 fps. When asked, he said that in a racing game, a consistent frame rate is more important than a higher one.
Other fans have been concerned about the content of the free PlayStation Plus version of Driveclub, with some rumors suggesting it is just a demo, rather than a full game in its own right. Rustchynsky also addressed those concerns:
“It’s hardly a demo because you get access to all of the game’s features online and offline. The difference is that you only have 10 cars and you can only race in one country (which gives you access to 5 tracks with 11 distinct variants).”
We still aren’t sure how much content the main version of the game has, but the PS+ version sounds as though it’ll still have a good deal of things for you to do. However, you won’t be able to complete the single player campaign with only 10 cars and 5 tracks.
Finally, while this trailer doesn’t show anything particularly new, it’s worth mentioning that Mercedes Benz posted a video of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Black Series in the game. Head on over to take a look.
What do you think? We expect to have more details as we get closer to E3, and of course, we should see much more at E3 itself.Tags: driveclub, playstation plus, ps4, trailer

The long-awaited (and delayed) PS4 exclusive Driveclub has finally received a release date, along with a new trailer featuring game footage. Driveclub releases on October 7 in North America, October 10 in the United Kingdom, and October 8 in the rest of Europe. Additionally, if you’re a member of PlayStation Plus, there will be a special PS+ version you can download for free, although it will not have all the content found in the main game.
What do you think? Are you excited to see more of Driveclub after all this time?Tags: driveclub, ps4, release date

Just a few days ago, we caught a hint that Driveclub could be coming out soon. Now, new rumors mark June 12 as the release date for this delayed PS4 game.
Dell has Driveclub listed with a release date of 6/12/2014. Some customers have also received emails from Dell with the same date given. Nevertheless, we still haven’t heard anything official.
June 12 is the final day of E3. Could Sony be planning to announce the launch of Driveclub there? We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.Tags: driveclub, ps4, release date, rumor

If you’ve been waiting for the PS4-exclusive racing game Driveclub, you probably feel as thought you’ve had nothing but bad luck. After the initial excitement surrounding its announcement, it was delayed until “early 2014,” with no specific release date given beyond that. It later received further delays, and we haven’t heard much about it beyond rumors…
…but now we have reason to believe it could be coming out soon!
Sony’s credit card rewards site, Sony Rewards, has just added Driveclub to its list of games. Preorders aren’t usually listed on Sony Rewards, so this could be a good sign for Driveclub fans.
On the other hand, it could be a mistake, although we prefer to be optimistic. We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything official.Tags: driveclub, ps4, rumor

Fans have been wondering for quite a while now just when the delayed PS4 racing game Driveclub will be released. Now, a user at PSNation claims to have the answer.
This user posted a screenshot of Twitter, in which the Driveclub Twitter page has posted “Mark your calendars 9.4.14 #DRIVECLUB,” and claims that the Tweet has since vanished.
It could be a legitimate leak, posted by mistake, but on the other hand, it could be a faked image. If we assume for a minute it is true, however, than the long wait for Driveclub will end on September 4… or April 9, depending on which formatting convention was used for the date. On the other hand, the Tweet doesn’t actually say the game will be released on that day. It could be a new trailer, an announcement, or any number of things.
The image is a little strange. We find it hard to believe that something so significant could be posted and only be favorited and retweeted once on Twitter. On the other hand, someone has to be the first to see it, and it could be the user who took the screenshot. Then again, both the original tweet and its retweet are nowhere to be found.
So take this news with a pinch of salt. We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything official.Tags: driveclub, leak, release, rumor
