    President of Sony Worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida has just announced on the PlayStation Blog that the PS4 launch game DRIVECLUB has been pushed back to 'early 2014'.

    This is the second PS4 launch game to be delayed this week, however DRIVECLUB is an exclusive and was to be the first game offered to PlayStation Network Plus members along with Resogun.
    Instead of DRIVECLUB, Plus subscribers will now receive Contrast, along with Resogun at launch.
    This isn't good news for the Sony camp, leaving platform exclusives at launch to just Killzone Shadow Fall and Knack.

    Funny how Contrast looks more interesting than Driveclub.

    Driveclub? Please, more like Jiveflub.

    Actually, "Jiveflub" sounds like a much more interesting game. Please, Sony, now that you have the time, do make it more like Jiveflub.

    INB4 PS4 LAUNCH WITH NO GAEMZ ;o; :nayps3:

    but I agree that Contrast is a much better choice than Driveclub.

    PS4, please don't join the delayed game club with the Wii U. We need at least one system to have some games at launch.

    If Knack and Octodad are the highlight of your launch lineup...

    My comment was more of a joke than serious.
    Personally hearing any game on any system being delayed after launch always sounds ugly and makes me worry there might be more to come.

    Infamous is Q1/Q2 2014. They unveiled the LE and preorder bonuses yesterday.
    The preorder DLC is an Infamous 2 epilogue.

    Hmm...looks like they're delaying it to work on the game more...so I'm not complaining.

    And really, I probably wouldn't have played Driveclub anyways...

    Lets be frank here... Driveclub is not a HUGE title... This delay probabily will not hurt so many people (I love racing games, but this one is just another NFS, it is good but not essencial)

    I got really hurted when they announced that GT6 was meant to be a PS3 title and not a PS4 one

    it makes sense that GT6 is for ps3, every playstation so far has had 2 Gran Turismo games on the system.
    so it makes perfect sense. or would you rather sony drop the ps3 altogether and focus only on the ps4, like what microsoft did to the xbox when they released the 360. alot of my friends that had the xbox were pissed when they did this.

    Are they still doing the "Only On PlayStation" tag?

    To be honest, this game looks boring as hell so they might just aswell cancel it if you ask me
