DriveClub

Former director of DriveClub, Paul Rustchynsky, has shared his thoughts on the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro and revealed new details about the upcoming DriveClub VR. According to Rustchynsky people are underestimating the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Sony’s newest console comes with 4 TFLOPs of GPU power, a slightly upgraded CPU and memory. Granted it’s a decent jump compared to the base mode, but Microsoft’s upcoming Scorpio is head and shoulders above the Pro in terms of specs.

He also responded to a user’s comment about the Pro lacking a 4K blu ray player and whether its inclusion would have improved his gaming experience (the answer is obviously no). The lack of 4K blu-ray is apparently an issue for some players and we have done a through analysis on whether Sony can add it in the future. You read our report here.

Rustchynsky also tweeted a bit about DriveClub VR. When asked whether players will feel sick while playing the game, he stated that it ultimately depends on the players. The more you play VR, the more you will get acclimatized with the headset. Furthermore, the new trophies will be specific to the VR mode and there will be no news one added to the base version despite the latter receiving new tracks. Lastly he defended against claims that DriveClub VR is simply a cash grab by stating that the game has new modes, tracks, stats and trophies.

    I finally bought drive club last week off PSN for $7…what a waste of money that was. The game is horrible and it was made even more evident when I started playing horizon 3 five days later.

    I tried 8 times over 2 days at various times of day and night to find a game online…not a single person was playing. I had my ps4 waiting in lobbies for hours while I worked on my laptop. Such a healthy community of course i can’t blame anyone. The games handling physics are all over the place, the ai is nearly as inconsistent as the latest need for speed and the visuals look horribly dated with low resolution assets and jaggies everywhere.

    The bike dlc was especially terrible. I’ve never played a game where bikes handled so counter intuitive to the way they should

    • crazy_black_man-

      The reason the lobbies were empty when you tried to play is easily explainable. The situation you encountered in Driveclub is just like in this forum, and every other gaming site you often show up in. Nobody likes you. Go play that new Forza rehash on Xbox One. But always remember to perform a “hard reset” before you launch the game, or the party chat, background music, trophy support, disc loading, controller syncing, online connection, Kinect, Cortana, the L1 button , L2 button, R1 button, R2 button, left bumper, right bumber, and d-pad,…may not work as advertised. But you already knew all that because you play on Xbox and you stink at life. Oh, and by the way, as the guy already said, DRIVECLUB VR IS A TOTALLY NEW GAME, BUILT AROUND VR.

    • Old Skool

      Don’t mind this^^^^^^^ guy. He gets “Doggystyled” by Sony.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL!

    • d0x360

      I suppose you’re right. I did buy a ps4 and drive club after all.

    • jp

      hahahahaha

    • d0x360

      Sick burn bro I’m obviously dealing with a genius.

      I do own an Xbox one you’re right but sorry I’m playing Forza on PC. You know PC right…the best platform to play games.

      I dunno call me crazy but…I just love games when they run at 60fps or higher and those 4k textures are so damn nice.

      Hey! Someday maybe you will experience 4k all you gotta do is wait for Sony to release a 4th PlayStation 4..unless of course they go bankrupt first. I give them till 2018 based on their market valuation, revenue stream and expenses. They better hurry or else Mr sad eye will have to buy big boy hardware. I know none of that makes sense to you but someday when you’re out of middle school it might so print it out and hang it on your fridge so you don’t forget.

      Now you enjoy yourself. The floor is entirely yours so post away, you bore me. Following me around for 2 weeks now and still haven’t posted a damn thing of value. Such a shame, I expect more from crazy people, at the very least a decent insult but from you…nothing. its like being yelled at by a wall or a bronie…you aren’t a bronie are you? Wait…based on some of these URLs I have here you are!

      That’s fantastic dude, let that bronie freak flag fly don’t be ashamed. Say hi to Tumblr for me, I’ve never been.. it’s too weird but to each their own right?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Whew, that was quite a response to someone who bores you. I had to put the book down, and mark the page. Couldnt even finish the chapter. You sure there won’t be a sequel to this epic whine session?

    • Mike

      Dear God. Now the dude has a PC that does 4k 60 fps and goes back to the old “Sony is going bankrupt” crap. It’s obvious he hasn’t played driveclub at all.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Yep!

    • Mr Xrat

      lol, already needing to shill for Shitza. Embarrassing.

    • d0x360

      Shills everywhere oh no! The guy likes one Universally loved game and doesn’t like a game that’s pretty much universally disliked…must be a shill!

      That’s how you sound to anyone who isn’t 13. Come up with something new the “shill” argument got stale 6 years ago.

      For once I’d like someone with even 1/4 a brain to post…just one time.

    • jp

      dude, these guys have been waiting for GT since 2015, they get a so so racing game and they think is better than Forza horizon 3 or Forza Motorsport 6, I think its just lame how they swallow everything Sony shoves in their mouths.

    • d0x360

      I know. I just think it’s sad people would miss out on great games because of some absurd brand loyalty.

      I dont expect to win him or any of them over but this particular person has seen fit to follow me around like a little lost puppy attacking me at every corner. It’s fine…I mean he’s clearly unintelligent and doesn’t understand even basic concepts.

      For when I said he bored me and I wrote a response to entertain MYSELF. He seemed to think I wrote it because I was challenged by him which is quite honestly pathetic lol. Then he went on another rant thinking I’d respond again…sorry but I i dont care to get in a sad little internet fight with a fanboy who can’t bring up a single decent point.

      He’s a troll a really obvious one at that and i might have engaged 10 years ago when nonsense like that woule bug me but I have better things to do now than argue with morons who say things like not a single person was playing drive club online for 4 days in a row because they hate me…yes every drive club owner knows me and hates me. I mean how childish can you get lol.

    • jp

      I knoe dude just lame.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Yeah dude. So lame.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. Somebody needs to make an appointment with their therapist asap. You don’t need to make a diary entry about me. How sad. Please don’t do anything to harm yourself. Theyre just words son. I’m sorry I hurt your feelings, I really am.

    • Mr Xrat

      “Universally loved”

      By Xgimps with nothing else to cling to, perhaps. No hype anywhere else though. Not surprised when you’ve squeezed the stone this hard.

  • Old Skool

    What else are they suppose to say? They’re not gonna Sh*t where they eat!
    With that out the way I’m sure the system will be nice but I’m not upgrading my OG PS4 for minor upgrades.
    This is a no brainer for people who don’t already own one though.

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      they dont work for Sony anymore

    • angh

      You do realize he is not working for Sony for months? Now, he’s with Codemasters.

    • Old Skool

      Ok, my b. Wasn’t aware of that.

  • Psionicinversion

    Well its no wonder hes licking sonys behind seeing as they shut down his studio and brought it in house…. his job is hanging by a thread

    • d0x360

      It doesn’t help that their last 3 games have lost money but drive club cost Sony significantly..enough that it dropped the stock valuation which lost me money. Thankfully I made it back when uncharted was released. They even lost money on the dlc which is insane since that’s where they usually make a ton of profit.

  • DA-ROOSTER

    People are underestimating the power of the PS4 PRO? Well all Sony has shown running on the PS4 PRO are games that are sub 4K resolution that are only being upscaled to 4K and with unstable frame rates
    So where is the power is it hiding somewhere?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Speaking of games, does the Xbox have any worth talking about anymore? I mean 4K is just a resolution. Scorpio ain’t gonna make a steamy pile of sh*t look any prettier. What new games are coming out for Scorpio VR? Oh wait….there ain’t no Scorpio VR. The future tech of console videogames experiences begins on Oct 13th, and once again, Microsoft is 2 thousand and late. Hilariousness.

    • hvd hvd

    • hvd hvd

    • how ya doin?

      We’re talking about ps4 games not last gen, stay up to date oh and btw, not all PlayStation games are on ps now making the ps3 still worth getting at 79$. Oh and ps now? Yeah you’re really just playing on a ps3 only you have to pay monthly lol what a scam

    • hvd hvd

      ill give you that bc is free on xbox one..lol…you didnt hear uncharted 4 is going to be one of the first ps4 games going to ps now when it launches on pc?

      catch up.

    • how ya doin?

      Be up to date it isn’t confirmed, only a rumor.

    • hvd hvd

      lol in denial as usual…lol..

    • how ya doin?

      http://segmentnext.com/2016/09/19/rumor-ps4-games-coming-ps-now-pc-uncharted-4-spotted/

      Are you talking about this article? Cause if so, do you see that photo? That’s a computer with a PlayStation remote play USB port. There is no rumor, it is a false article trying to clickbait you.

    • hvd hvd

      then thats false advertising.they should be sued.

    • how ya doin?

      Indeed. But they’ll do anything to get clicks.

    • hvd hvd

      yep i see the same thing on you tube so its not going to change.

    • how ya doin?

      Oh and I checked up on it and no it’s not about ps now it’s about remote play so that article is a false rumor.

    • jp

      Bloodborn contender for THIS year GOTY? you people say theres a lot of PS4 games but keep on repeating the same old games that everybody forgot about already or games end up being delayed, Xbox: Gears 4, Dead Rising 4, Sea Of Thieves, Recore, Scalebound, State of Decay 2, Crackdown, Halo Wars 2.
      PS4: God Of War (2019 at least), Death Stranding (2018 at least), keep on waiting.

    • how ya doin?

      Yet we have god of war 4, Spiderman ps4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Detroit Become human, Death Stranding, Days Gone, gravity rush 2, nioh, nier automata, etc. Oh btw recore got a 62. An even worse score than no mans sky, that is sad and pathetic.

    • jp

      Recore got that score because the media bias and bugs, that game is excelent but you will never play it because you are a hater, yeah sure all those games you listed are coming at least late 2017 so, yeah keep on waiting man.

    • how ya doin?

      Can you stop being in denial? Ffs even I can see that no mans sky and the order were failures and you’re calling me a fanboy? Jeez kid get over yourself and realize not everyone likes recore

    • jp

      you havent played it, and the fact that people that has not even played it say they dont like it its just nonsense, I be if you played you would like it im sure, media bias is real. how come Nioh is exactly the same as Dark Souls and nobody bats an eye? laaaaame.

    • how ya doin?

      False, It is inspired by dark souls. And I get you’re trying to get me to look like a fanboy and make me a hypocrite but it’s failing and especially with that rhetorical question.

    • how ya doin?

      And wow you’re being a troll now, no point in commenting anymore really.

    • Mr Xrat

      Poor Kirk, still scared.

  • Riggybro

    Interesting, considering people are overestimating the power of Scorpio.

    I know it’s normal for a console to keep prices down any way possible – but at the time Scorpio comes out 6TF will cutting edge… 3 years ago (just like when current gen released).

    Just like now PS Pro is cutting edge… 3 years ago.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Both console’s games are beholden to their originals framerate wise, so …yeah. The resolution bump means very little if you don’t own a 4K tv. The exclusives will still rule the day.

    • Luke Skywalker

      i’m guessing you’re missing the point where developers can use the box how they want to. this means, they can go for resolution, frame rate, both, they can give options as rise of the tomb raider will do. there are lots of routes they can take which means you don’t have to have a 4k tv to really get the benefits = super sampling.

    • crazy_black_man-

      I guess you’re missing the part where I said that every upgraded game will share the same framerate as the original console’s framerate… on BOTH consoles. Forget what you think you know, and pay more attention son, as this is a good learning moment for you. The Xbox Scorpio will be severely handicapped by the limitations of the original Xbox One in the framerate category. Pay attention boy!

    • Foster Hampton

      But the consoles aren’t “beholden” by their originals. Rise of the tomb raider can play at 30 or 45+, on the ps4 pro, and Phil spencer said that Devs can ultimately do what they please with the power.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Single player only son.

    • Luke Skywalker

      You are not making much sense or you’re having a mental block at the moment, don’t worry it happens to everyone sometime.
      Rise of the tomb raider of frame rates and resolutions being different on old and new consoles. There are options developers can give gamers depending on platform they’re running the grame on. So with that said I don’t see the xbox being “handicapped”.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Single player games only son. How many Xbox One games are single player experiences these days? Not many.

    • Foster Hampton

      Um all of them have single player, and can I get a link for this information because that makes no sense.

    • efnet

      Cooning at it’s finest lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      You’re up mighty early. Have you had your coconut expresso yet Thurston Howell the 3rd?

    • efnet

      Nah I don’t poison my body with that crap, figi water and a power bar is what I use to start my day…

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. Figi water and a power bar. I bet you wear them skinny jeans with your thong showing out the back too.

    • efnet

      The fact that you, as a grown azz man could suggest such a thing just makes me think you got a lil sugar in your tank….
      With that being said , I seriously think you have me confused with the white folks ..
      I take care of my body for sure but as a black man I can’t get down like that my dude lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      Much appreciated.

  • James Hewitson

    First of all im a PlayStation and a Sony fan in general I like their products so im not a hater however, It’s a crippled 470 with the same weak Jaguar CPU so how are we underestimating? It will most likely run into the same CPU bottlenecks as the current PS4 does (Xbox aswell). Sure as heck ain’t going to stop people from building a gaming PC .

    • Tamago1

      That is the sad true. The CPU will continue being the bottleneck and the frame-rates will continue being sub 30fps.

    • Luke Skywalker

      well guys think about it, it’s a faster CPU even though it’s still a jaguar.
      devs will still need to optimize and use techniques to deal, there’s Vulcan and there’s dx12 for Microsoft that helps to deal with cpu bottlenecks.

  • Mr Xrat

    Headline – fixed!

    • crazy_black_man-

      Cash grab? You sound jealous that Forza aint got no VR. Dont be petty like that son. Wipe your tears away.

      https://youtu.be/VkPSZMFYSzk

    • TwinStripeUK

      HAHAHAA… including a video ‘preview’ from an officially Sony sponsored site is ‘proof’ – enjoy your 720p, migraine inducing vomit-fest delusion, moron…

    • crazy_black_man-

      You sound like you’re about to have a seizure. I must have struck a nerve. Poor little fella.

  • Jim Peterson

    Of course they are. The system has a quoted GPU power of 4.2 teraflops. To put that into perspective, a GTX 970 has 3.5 teraflops and a GTX 980 has 5 teraflops. And both of those are still great GPUs. For a console thats insanely powerful, especially when combined with the 8GB pool GDDR5 RAM for system and VRAM and the usual console optimization.
    Will it be playing most games at native 4K? No way. But neither does my $800 GTX 1080. For a $399 console its a powerhouse and the only reason people are thinking otherwise is because MS has announced an even more powerful system.

    • Mark

      To be honest I think more people wouldn’t underestimate it if it were atleast giving us 60fps in single player games. Yeah Tomb Raider has it, but it falls well below that. I just feel if the Pro couldn’t allow 4K native, then give us the 60fps. I think people are saying the jump up from vanilla PS4 to the Pro isn’t big in these terms. I think that’s the complaint

  • Starman

    LOOOOOOLL…..What a joke

    “Save the PS4” Give me a brake…

  • Guest

    So now its only 4tf instead of 4.2? And 216gb/s then 218? Keep downgrading it GB, keep downgrading. And keep acting like Scorpio is this big jump. The two systems are going to look so close that everyone will be wondering what the extra 1.8tf on Scorpio are for.
