The Free PS Plus Version of Driveclub is Looking Shaky

By Leon Hurley on at

Remember when we were all going to get a free PS Plus version of Driveclub? Sony UK boss Jim Ryan isn't sounding too hopeful about that these days.

I'd say Driveclub's missed its chance as an interesting PS Plus offering at this point. It's been out a while and while the original server issues have been fixed, its allure as an exciting new thing has faded.

In a fairly stern Metro Interview Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president and CEO Jim Ryan has this to say when asked about the game's issues and PS Plus no show:

GC: Is there still going to be the free PlayStation Plus version?

JR: That’s still being looked at.

GC: You can’t guarantee that it will ever happen?

JR: I can’t say anything at this stage.

Later on, when talking about day one issues, server problems and QAing products Ryan adds: "One would hope, and certainly we've learnt an awful lot from the Driveclub experience, that those mistakes, once made, should not be repeated."
