    How much is the PS+ upgrade option? I've not seen any pricing for the UK.

    I believe it's $50 in North America (maybe just the US). The 'upgrade' basically buys you the digital version of the game at a PS+ discount.

    Here's some direct feed footage from gamespot.

    Looks great ... some of the cornering and the framerate a bit iffy right now perhaps, but overall a beautiful racer that gives me a happy arcade feeling. I like that you get points deducted for bumping into cars, track, etc.

    Evolution is really pimping this game hard I see, very nice weather addition indeed. Can't wait to see them in action.

    I do think it's amusing they've been pushing the weather angle in DriveClub just days after all those Horizon 2 screenshots came out emphasizing their rain effects. I think MS expected to press weather as a technical advantage.

    I am really surprised this was not at Sony's E3 conference. I mean, this is thier biggest exclusive this year and it got no limelight at all. I was expecting a reunvieling and instead they just threw it away :( !

    I don't think it's a bad idea to leave that for later in the year, when the game is close to release, so as to not get hurt again by a delay announcement afterwards if for whatever reason (earthquake, tsunami, stingy resource planning ;) ) the game gets more delayed.

    Another possibility is getting a more public unveiling at GamesCom -> Sony has a good tradition of showing some of the better European stuff in Europe.

    Very timely, Eurogamer posted this:
    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-18-driveclub-could-be-the-racing-game-to-beat-this-year

    So apparently it was shown at E3, is much improved both graphically and in handling, and also supports a range of wheels. But also mentions that the full weather system is delayed a little to somewhere between launch and Christmas.

    I hope they support the DFGT, although I kind of doubt it. It will be weird playing a racer with a controller again.

    Logitech is seemingly the cause of delays, their software support division is dead.

    Hopefully Sony will get their hands on Logitech drivers before the end of the year. Not for DriveClub, but for ProjectCARS wich is hardcore sim and wheel support is much more important to its gameplay.

    If they're going to show at E3, they'd want to show something new, and I don't think there really is. It would just be showing stuff that we've already seen or already know about, so there's not much point.

    Indeed. I like how during the Xbox conference they showed how Assassin's Creed Unity is shaping up on PC. :no:

    Reminds me how good they were to PC gamers last year, showing how BF3 was shaping up on crossfire 7970s.

    Nice how MS puts some love into pc despite it being a console centric expo.

    This is really a dumb thing to start a war about. Every year at E3 a couple of games are shown off on Pcs during either Sony or Ms conference. It happens.

    shredenvain, we're just seeing the funny side of silly things that happen at E3! :yes: It was surprising not to see anything of DC but then they've been released a lot of videos lately!

    Drive Club looks gorgeous...

    Only thing I have noticed that doesn't look near-perfect was sometimes the hood reflections were a bit low resolution.

    Other than that, reflections on other parts of the car even, have been almost impeccable. And all realtime. I love the reflections from other cars in the bodies, so awesome.

    Thats so well done, it would spark its own religious belief in most other forums. (Need some clapping smiley here)
