It is. I assume people don't want to discuss it for a bit after the Watch Dogs thing and because this was our free game I think Give me KZ and I will be ok

They removed it from the preview page, and its not in kiosks or has been pulled from those it was in.

It means more I think to the PS+ service as this was the "free" game that was supposed to be given out. Now that is not an option.

True but for me it was one of the ones that slightly interested me. I am not a massive driving fan but I am a technology fan and racing games push the edge so whenever a new one comes out its always on my radar for an eye candy and tech check

Resogun is still free on launch day with Plus, and it looks fantastic.

Yep, 'Driveclub PS+ Edition' has been talked about as a "pack-in game" of sorts, something extra for PS+ members to play on launch day. I myself am not the biggest fan of racing games, but I'd hate to see a PS4-exclusive launch title like Driveclub slip. More than anything I like the potential of what the game represents for future PS4 releases: a new way to try out and enjoy a nearly full version of a game before buying the full version. Design director Paul Rustchynsky has said that it's the "full game minus a few cars/tracks" and has publicly stated PS+ members will be give an option to buy the full digital version at a discounted price (I'm guessing somewhere between between 20 and 35% off). It's like the PS+ edition is a hybrid of free-to-play and an extended, non-locked "demo plus" version or something. I think that's a cool, no-risk way to try out a new game franchise on new hardware.

Here's a PS4 unboxing by a German dev, also them showing how to replace the HDD. It's basically the same as the PS3, just a 2.5" laptop drive.

That thing is surprisingly tiny.

I never played Flower, flOw or Sound Shapes. This plus Knack will keep me busy enough.

So, Contrast is the new free game.

Actually kinda neat, even though it's an indy.

But yeah, not a full retail, but whatever.

The smart thing would to be to not promise that disc based game so early but announce the titles later when they would be set in stone. Never heard of Contrast but downloaded the trailer and looks somewhat interesting. Reminds me of the PSN game Sideways.

Wonder how two indie titles are going to sway people to fork over $50 for plus at launch. Will be interesting to see if or how this changes anything for people signing up.

Almost one month till launch!!!

I agree the promise wasn't smart in hindsight. But I don't think you have to put up 50 bucks at once. 15 for 3 is what I'm paying.

Hell, the DriveClub delay works out in my favor, it goes from a game I care very little about being partially free with Plus to a game I was planning on buying (Contrast) being free.

EDIT: Some actual news, Blizzard has confirmed that the Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo 3 will be coming to the PS4 and will be playable, on PS4, at Blizzcon this year.

Honestly by that time I doubt I'll care. Everything about the game just looks boring. Hell, I loved the Motorstorm games, I thought they were great, so I know Evolution can do things I enjoy, but DriveClub looks like just another standard driving game.

By that time I'll have more than enough to play.

EDIT: Other news for a game I personally do care about, Infamous: Second Son now has a Limited Edition for everyone that preorders, and a Collector's Edition for $20 more that comes with a beanie, some pins, a patch, and some in game skins. Both will come with a special DLC episode that details evens between Infamous 2 and Second Son.

You mean the launch of the game... not the launch of the system.

Yeah, the game is being sent to die now. It was a great idea to put a demo+ of a retail game on PS+ as incentive to buy the service and even get the full game (you could still get every trophy in the demo) but it does say something when a first party game gets delayed 1 month before launch. This game means more to the Europe market than the US as they care more about racing games than we do.

Like I said earlier, for the US it means more that it's being removed from PS+ than it does that the full version is not launching. Now the only two disc based titles are Knack and Killzone.

I wouldn't say that at all, it'll probably have a better change of succeeding if they put it out during a relatively dry spell. People will be hungry for new games.

As for Plus, again, if you're coming in fresh to the PS4 with no Plus sub it could have an impact, but there's still enough of a benefit to Plus that the exclusion of a paired down DriveClub shouldn't be a deal breaker.

Yeah, that is a pretty damn slim first party launch lineup. For a company who's strength has been great first party output it's disappointing.

Is the PS+ version of DriveClub considered a disc based game now? I suppose it's how things get spun depending on the situation. If I had been really excited for DriveClub I might be freaking out a little but honestly it was on my check out the review list before even downloading it.

I'm not sure what the fork over $50 comment is all about either. Plus is not $50 a month, it last all year with other games coming down the pipe. Besides, isn't the paywall going to be reason enough?

Speaking of PS+ at GameStop on black friday you can get your online mulitplayer action on for just $30 a year over the normal $50. Don't forget to pick up DriveClub and Watch Dogs while you are at it.
