Driveclub PS Plus Version Upgrade Comes With a Big Catch


Sony has revealed the details of how its PS Plus version of Driveclub will work, and a lot of gamers aren’t happy about it.

The game will come in two flavors, according to the video above and a post on the PlayStation Blog. A standard disc and digital version with all of the content for $60. Or the free PlayStation Plus edition, which has a limited selection of tracks and cars, but allows the player to upgrade and carry over her Plus edition progress to the full version.

“If you’re an active PlayStation Plus subscriber and have been playing the PlayStation Plus Edition, but decide you want the full Driveclub experience, you can purchase a one-time upgrade for $49.99. This will give you access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events, as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription remains active,” Jamie Brayshaw, community development manager for Evolution studios wrote in a blog post.

It’s that “as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription remains active” line that caused the uproar. Checking various forums, gamers were not happy about the idea that they would lose content they paid for it they let their Plus subscriptions lapse. And they shouldn’t be, it’s fine that Plus works as a rental service with the “free” games that are on it, but people expect to get to keep things they paid for.

Perhaps this is a misunderstanding. Driveclub Game Director Paul Rustchynsky tweeted he was “seeking clarification” on the matter. And if not maybe Sony will back off the plan before the game is released, but if not, maybe consider either using the Plus version as a demo to see if you want the game or buying the full version outright.
