Sony no longer guaranteeing DriveClub PS+ Edition, but you shouldn't care

In a recent Metro interview with Sony Europe President/CEO Jim Ryan, he was unable to guarantee that the PS Plus version of DriveClub will ever be released.

Metro:  And… is there still going to be the free PlayStation Plus version?

Jim Ryan: That’s still being looked at.

Metro: You can’t guarantee that it will ever happen?

Jim Ryan: I can’t say anything at this stage.

Well, that doesn't sound good does it? DriveClub was originally planned to be a launch game for the PS4, but was delayed numerous times before its eventual release last year. The game was also originally supposed to be released for free on PS Plus, but as time went by, it emerged that the PS Plus version would be a slimmed down version of the game featuring only the India-based tracks.

Sony no longer guaranteeing DriveClub PS+ Edition, but you shouldn't care

When DriveClub launched, it was beset by online issues that completely broke the entire online side of the game. Forget multiplayer races, you couldn't even get the Challenges to work for weeks after launch.  And despite the experience being much more stable now -aside from the ridiculous penalty system- it looks like the free PS Plus version may never come into existence as it's encountered multiple issues during development.

One year of PS Plus for £34.19. You won't find cheaper.

I've been looking for a new PS Plus deal for ages and this is the best online price I've seen, even without the 5% off as most sites (including eBay) are sticking to £40. I was hoping for a bigger discount around Black Friday, but to be honest, this is the best price I've seen all year.

To get 5% off (normal price £35.99), just like the site's facebook page. If you're not redirected to a code, try this link.

PSN vs Xbox LIVE: The Battle of Subscriptions and Services

PSN vs Xbox LIVE: The Battle of Subscriptions and Services

"I had Xbox LIVE for 10 years and didn't have as many outages as I have in my first year of PSN. It's crap."

I want to thank russ3333 for that comment there, left in the wake of the announcement that Sony would be performing maintenance on the PSN service the night before Far Cry 4 and the new-gen version of GTA V are due to be released. Sony even added in a disclaimer, warning that although the PSN was slated to come back online at midnight (at which point both games launch) the maintenance work could overrun. Given the long history of PSN downtime, you'd probably get competitive odds on the PSN still being offline by the time you got back from the midnight launch.

While writing this article, Sony announced that they were moving the scheduled maintenance forwards by an hour.

I had both an Xbox 360 and a PS3 for the majority of the previous console generation, and I did most of my multiplayer gaming on Xbox LIVE. It seemed ridiculous, sure -- you could play for free on PS3, after all -- but, as we've mentioned several times here onsite, Xbox LIVE proved to be far more stable and reliable and worthwhile in that regard. Sure, I was paying a £30 (under when there was a good deal, and there was always a good deal) premium per year, but that really wasn't much in the grand scheme of things.

PSN vs Xbox LIVE: The Battle of Subscriptions and Services

PlayStation Plus changed all of that, of course. Here was a subscription service that delivered an outstanding smorgasbord of free games and excellent discounts, and it kept getting better and better. Suddenly, you didn't really need to buy games any more for your PS3.

Of course, standing at the end of 2014, the subscription services on Xbox One and PS4 are broadly similar. You need subscriptions to play online across both platforms now, and Microsoft introduced Games With Gold to try and rival PlayStation Plus. The two subscriptions cost about the same, but although there are broad similarities and parallels, it's clear that each side's original strengths still remain their biggest selling points.

New PlayStation Plus PS4 deals in - Sleeping Dogs, Sniper Elite 3, UFC, Garden Warfare

The PlayStation Plus PS4 deals for the next fortnight are live on the PlayStation Store already ahead of the usual big announcement, and we've rounded up a whole bunch of them, with some games discounted to the tune of up to 60% off.

The Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition deal leads the line with strong support from the likes of Sniper Elite 3, EA SPORTS UFC, and big savings on indie titles such as Flockers, Counterspy, and the superlative Valiant Hearts.

NB. You'll need a PS Plus subscription to get the games at these prices.

We'll update the list accordingly, and we'll have the big PSN update roundup for you later too.

Infamous and Injustice leading the line for PlayStation Plus freebies in December / January

Sony have revealed the leading lights of their PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection across the next couple of months, with Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition and Secret Ponchos coming to PS4 in December, and Infamous: First Light and The Swapper replacing them in January.

Injustice, despite being a last-gen title, marks the first triple-A appearance in the PS4's monthly freebie collection, and it'll be interesting to see hoiw Secret Ponchos stacks up on consoles. You can click here to see the PC version in action, but it's been a little sparse. Hopefully its release on PS4 will garner a bigger audience.

Infamous: First Light is a cracking standalone expansion, and a great way to test the waters for Second Son, and you can read my review of it here, and The Swapper is an absolutely brilliant, atmospheric puzzle platformer. Looks like PS4 owners are in for a good, wallet-friendly Christmas.

Is Sony Slapping PS Plus Members in the Face with DriveClub?

Is Sony Slapping PS Plus Members in the Face with DriveClub?

Earlier this week, DriveClub's new director Paul Rustchynsky responded to comments about the PS Plus Edition of the game to give readers some much wanted details about the upcoming racing game. When asked how the full-priced retail edition and the PS Plus version would differ he said: "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)."

It wasn't long before disgruntled gamers started to question the rather thin nature of the release, especially seeing as earlier interviews with Sony and Evolution implied that the PS Plus Edition would appear, by most standards, to have content akin to that of a full-sized game and the full-priced version was going to be more of an extras-packed version, something more like the special editions we see ahead of other releases.

Rustchynsky replied with: "The PlayStation Plus Edition hasn’t changed. It’s hardly a demo because you get access to all of the game’s features online and offline."

Is Sony Slapping PS Plus Members in the Face with DriveClub?

To be fair, the last racing demo I played only had three tracks and three cars. So maybe those he's right, but his silence was notable when asked how many tracks and cars would be in the final game -you'd imagine ballpark figures would be at least be available.

Game Buzz | Episode 61 - Don't Be A D**k

Oh King.com. As if it wasn't enough to make rubbish games, you had to go and threaten a bunch of indie devs without the means to defend themselves.

Yes, this week's Game Buzz kicks off with us lambasting King for their reprehensible practices this week before chatting about Sony's bizarre motion control patent, the disparaging comments made by an alleged EA insider about Nintendo and the partnership that crumbled swiftly, and why Microsoft really have to step it up if they want to compete with PS Plus.

Game Buzz | Episode 61 - Don't Be A D**k. Recorded 24th January, 2014.

Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be some instances of strong language.

Dealspwn Playthrough | Don't Starve - PS4 Gameplay

Our new playthrough video is a 12 minute glimpse at the world of Don't Starve, the latest free PS4 game to land on the PS Plus service. The game's similarities to the likes of Minecraft, or more specifically Terraria, are there for all the indie-PC crowd to see. But how will such a niche survival-style title fare on the PS4?

Sony has been keen to show off their indie credentials with the PS4, but have they perhaps made a rare miss-calculation by having this as the first free PS Plus title since Contrast and Resogun back at launch last year? I'm very much a console gamer, but I managed to get into Terraria when I covered it on the 360 elsewhere last year. But Don't Starve is a different sort of beast with its aggressive one-life policy making it hard to stomach, especially given the lack of any tangible rewards for the time required to put in. That said, I've only played the game for about two hours so far.

As I said though, the game is free on PS Plus right now, so give it a go if you're hooked up, or check out my playthrough video to see the game in action first. It says a lot, that it's made me look forward to DriveClub (will be free on PS Plus next month) so much more now. Naturally, we'd love to hear from any of our readers who've downloaded the game recently too.

Check out the video after the break.
