If you want to get your PS4 ready to play Driveclub at launch, now you can, at least in North America, as mentioned by Game Director Paul Rustchynsky, who also advised that European gamers will get the same privilege tomorrow, while those in the UK will have to wait until Wednesday.
He also clarified that there will be a day one patch, even if it’ll be a small one.
If you are annoyed by the staggered launch (and I am as well, I always hated those), Rustchynsky definitely agrees:
I’m disappointed too. Global launches are the way forward.
While there are some practical reason between this, many publishers manage to pull out global launches, and while a few days aren’t a terrible delay, it’d be nice for a platform holder like Sony to actually open games to its customers all over the world at the same time.
