New hardware launches are always exciting for everyone in the industry- regardless of where they draw the line in the sand as brand allegiances go. And with so many new hardware launches coming up – the PS4 Pro, the PSVR, the Nintendo NX, and of course, Microsoft’s Xbox One Scorpio – it’s an exciting time for everyone in the industry at large.

One of the people excited about the Xbox One Scorpio in particular is Paul Rustchynsky, who used to work on DriveClub with Evolution Studios, before Sony shut down the entire outfit. Speaking on Twitter, Rustchynsky noted that he is excited about the upcoming console, and particularly about what he might be able to do with the hardware. Continuing to speak in Microsoft’s favor, Rustchynsky also said that the recent case of Forza Horizon nearing ‘end of life status’ was an unavoidable  outcome of timed licensing deals, and that this was the kind of thing that all racing games had to deal with.

Elsewhere, Rustchynsky also shared some details about the upcoming DriveClub VR – likely to be the last batch of information he gets to share on the game before moving on from it. He shared, for instance, that even though the full power of the PS4 Pro had not been harnessed with DriveClub VR, there would still be some additional details if a player chose to play the game on the Pro. DriveClub VR also supports the DualShock 4’s motion controls, Rustchynsky confirmed. He also stated that DriveClub would not be getting any further updates beyond the urban tracks, and that these new tracks will be added to DriveClub in a free update.

DriveClub VR is due out later this year. Given that Evolution Studios is now shut down, it is likely to be the final DriveClub product. Xbox One Scorpio, meanwhile, is due out next Holiday season.

    “Xbox One Scorpio, meanwhile, is due out next Holiday season, but we are receiving overwhelming pressure from forces that we can’t mention here, to keep talking about it as if it was going to be releasing THIS Christmas”. Hilariousness.

      More ponyisms from a pony.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Their talking more about it than the PS4 Pro so he is throwing a tantrum.

    • crazy_black_man-

      The sad thing for you is that they’ve been talking about it more than the barely 3 year old Xbox One console that you have right now. I’m not planning on buying the Pro. My 3 year old PS4 console is still seeing overwhelming support from Sony, and the gaming industry at large, and I’ve also got brand new exclusive VR games to play next month, and who do you think are supporting these new VR games on PS4?

      EVERYBODY!!!

      ALL THE BIG PUBLISHERS!!!

      Haaaa…sucka. You just got burned…again.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Yep they been talking more about the Xbox One S than the old Xbox One which is also getting a lot of support from features to games.

    • crazy_black_man-

      I’m sorry, my memory is fading. When was the last time Gaming Bolt ran a positive article specifically about the Xbox One S, or the original Xbox One that invoked any sense of excitement, and causing their readers to want to run out and buy those consoles? I only remember a recent article about the original Xbox One being on sale for a limited time for $150 or some small amount like that, and I still don’t think anyone jumped on that deal. Funny times we living in dude when MS can’t sell Xboxs, and they are forced to sell their exclusive games on PC to make a buck.

      For the life of me I can’t understand why one assembly of plastic, metal and silicon produced by a corporation matters to you so much more than another. It’s not a competition that should matter to the consumer, except insofar as the dual drive for sales helps game and hardware technologies move forward. Scorpio will clearly have the edge next year (think of how short time ago it seems that we were looking forward to last year’s games and you may realise that that in market terms that is not so far away as you imply) and the S is already doing rather well, but so what? Sony will no doubt bounce back with another product in a few years time and the cycle will go on.

      In the end it all works to the benefit of gamers, so I’d say just get on with playing your games on whatever your preferred platform or platforms happen to be. Aren’t games supposed to be about having fun?

    • crazy_black_man-

      For the life of me I can’t understand why you would waste your time writing a full page oped thinking I gave enough of a damn to entertain your worthless opinion. And then you come back with “Scorpio will clearly have the edge next year”, as if you were Michael Pachter himself. You almost sounded like you knew a thing or two, but alas, you showed YOUR obvious bias towards your favorite “piece of silicone”. Great effective writing like yours can often mask the bullsh*t hidden in the message. Good job though. I give you a tiny bit more credit than I give your brethren.

    • OldSocialist

      Ah, well there you go with the insults, saying more than I have any need to express. I don’t follow that line, I’m afraid.

      Yes, I do play on Xbox One more, because I like the ecosystem, that’s where my friends gravitated and I happen to like Forza and Halo, but I also apportion time to PS4 and think, for instance, that (as I already stated above) Drive Club is the most realistic racer out there, that Naughty Dog’s games are unique killer apps, and will happily express how much I admire the adventurousness of Sony in backing games like Journey. Having a preference doesn’t amount to complete bias, you see. I prefer Pepsi, but I still really like a swig or ten of Coke. Heck, I even benefit financially from Sony doing well, thanks to investments in VR patents the musicians’ cooperative I belong to made back in the ’90s. After two decades they’re finally paying off, thanks in part to Sony VR, so cheers PS4 and long may you prosper.

      For the record, the S has outsold PS4 two months straight in many markets (look it up; facts can’t lie) and there is a palpable change of the anti Xbox bias on the internet, probably due to the several missteps Sony has made lately (game delays, PS Plus price increase, No Man’s Sky underdelivering et al) and the clear water seen between the specs of the Pro and Scorpio. Add to the latter the fact that both PS4 and XB1 were underpowered on launch – yes, the XB1 more so – and four years on, when Scorpio will be launched, the market will surely be ready for more of a powerhouse to enliven it as well as serve the burgeoning 4K market. Many online and print commentators seem to be taking this line, which is maybe what is getting your overly partisan goat.

      I’ll finish by reiterating my point that competition is good for the industry, and wonder aloud whether Sony has been made complacent by its early lead and needs the kick up the backside that Scorpio will give it.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Whew, that was a good read. Heres the deal. As of right now, Scorpio doesn’t exist to you. It has no announced release date, there is no video of it in operation, its all propaganda to keep you people that follow technology news from bleeding more money into Sony’s gaming platform. Its a virtual patch to fix a very big leak in Xbox platforms strategy. It won’t help the masses of people make a purchasing decision this holiday season, who don’t keep up with technology news like you do. It will arrive far too late for most middle income families to care about how powerful it is. Those people will be increasingly invested in VR gaming on Sony’s more popular platform. My heart goes out to you guys who keep this fantasy of a better Xbox console going. But not really. I’m just trying to be sensitive to your pain, but just this once.

    • Mr Xrat

      Many markets = one.

      By a measly 100,000.

      Which was removed by just one week in Japan.

      Never mind.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Oh sorry I didn’t know Gamingbolt was the only gaming news site around. Positive article? Oh there are a lot…you just have the “PS Drone Symptom” where everything Xbox is negative to you. Seems you should go check that out because it’s affecting your memory. Funny times when a nobody on the Internet finds funny that a company that has sold 20 million+, and keeps growing, Xbox One’s says they can’t sell them.

    • TheOC

      Why bother dealing with desperate fanboys such as Crazy_Black_man. Don’t feed the trolls.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      That’s true, insecure ego centric troll nobodies like Crazy_Black_Man here shouldn’t be given the attention they seek.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. That was beautiful. Do you do toasts at weddings too?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Theyre not, and you still haven’t provided a link to anywhere proving that at the very least where you have proof that the “number keeps growing”.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Like you have provided countless links to your baseless claims when it comes to Xbox and Microsoft? Most of the crap you say comes out of your a$$ or reddit lol So don’t go asking when you yourself don’t do it hypocrite.

      Besides it’s a fact that the Xbox One is selling, it’s also a fact the Xbox One S is well received and bought by many, and it’s being supported by the industry. So no matter how much you cry, you spin, and try to pass your opinion as a fact the Xbox isn’t going anywhere let alone Microsoft.

    • efnet

      Lol how old are you again?
      Bro you’re trying entirely to hard dude.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Never show us your pain like this son. Its embarrassing.

  • Mr Xrat

    Always nice when they throw a bone to their “competition.” I’m excited for it too, and the disappointment it’ll entail.

    • OldSocialist

      Sounds like he’s moving on to “the competition” or multi-plat now that Sony no longer require his talents. Even with Forza Horizon 3 out in the wild Driveclub is still the most realistic looking racer available, with its own distinctive gameplay style, and I love it. I can’t help thinking that letting him go is another instance of Sony’s latterday overconfidence and bad choices.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Wow. Latterday overconfidence and bad choices? Are you talking about Sony or Microsoft? It sounds like you’re confused.

    • Hvd

      the better forza team and game will take him..lol

    • Mr Xrat

      Like it’s supposed to multiple times over the last three years? Your rehashes give you nothing except reinforce existing low impressions.

    • TheCellGames

      Mr. Monkeypoop and the band of PSCasuals always in fear of Scorpio. Love the smell of PSfear in the morning!

  • crazy_black_man-

    LOL. Look how frustrated it’s making you.

    • efnet

      Replying to you is a sign of aggression now?
      What in the world?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Your words not mine. I never said anything about aggression, but if you dare to notice the difference in my calm manner to your tone of hostility and frustration. Don’t get frustrated son. Let it go. Breathe in, breathe out.

    • efnet

      Enlighten me please, how can one determine the tone of an individual via text?
      Im extremely curious as to what your answer would be …

    • crazy_black_man-

      Duh. Because you pissing and moaning young lady. LOL. Its not that hard to see.

    • efnet

      What exactly am I moaning about though?
      Making an observation is hardly considered moaning or “pissing” as you put it …lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      Wow. Now you’re trying to use some kind of reverse psychology to hide the fact that when people share negativity towards your console of choice, it bothers you something fierce, and you feel the need to become defensive about it. It ain’t like your forced to respond to it. You choose to. To use your own words, “how old are you again”? It ain’t like the negative things I say aren’t true, and you guys just choose to overlook these things.

    • efnet

      Nothing reverse about it , I’m just trying to understand your position is all…
      You make a lot of claims about people who don’t agree with you or who don’t favor the same platform as you, and by you being a black man like myself, I just find it weird whenever you display that kind behavior .
      I’m just trying to understand it is all.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Opinions about the quality of consumer products are tied to one’s race now? Thats just stupid. How about I turn your argument on its head by saying that you, as a black man always bragging about your money, makes it sound like you ain’t never had nothing?

    • efnet

      Heck no. Just the behavior ….
      Like I always see white dudes get serious about plastic like this , I’ve never really seen black dudes act like that before so it’s just new to me is all .
      I have a favorite but I also have the other platforms too though …
      You on the other hand , I don’t know , it’s just weird to me

    • crazy_black_man-

      Funny thing. You sure are trying hard to keep me from sharing my indifference about that piece of plastic you love so much. Whether, You’re black or white, or purple, I find that behavior to be “weird”. Sound familiar? I also have a favorite and for obvious reasons, I REFUSE to buy the other platform. But I won’t try to censor you from sharing your negative opinion about the platform that I love. Can you see the difference between you and me now, black man?

    • efnet

      That’s actually true …
      As I said before, I came from poverty , and yea as a black individual we tend to let it be known whenever we reach a certain status.
      And again as a black man I can admit to my own characteristic flaws…
      Can you?

  • Hvd

    didnt sony close down the drive club team?.
