DriveClub delay to sell new VR

Obviously I hit a nerve with Seriously Chaosing who is obviously part of the development team. G O O D ! ! ! Make DriveClub the #1 priority for Playstation 4 instead of continuing to push it back while still releasing other games.

 

Really though, you protest too much. The making more money part is about delaying the release of DriveClub to sell a bunch of VR units, which I'm sure will cost a lot more than the game. THAT'S how Sony would make a lot more money. Just give us a freaking definite date and be done with it. FYI, I said that I was "Older than 8" which I am.... Quite a bit actually, so I would like to see DriveClub sometime before I die........ I pre-ordered the game back in November when the release was scheduled for late 2013, which usually means Christmas. That's long past and every time I check on a DriveClub release date, I get a new date and a new load of crap.

 

I intend to focus my attention on "encouraging" the development team to get their act together and get the game released ASAP from now forward.

 

EDIT: Removed "Games and Platforms" label. Added line breaks.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm glad that they are pushing it back.. If the game has any problems or issues, don't release it until it's in good condition.

 

And if they are willing to make any additions, then let it be. If it can enhance the experiance, then give it time.

The VR headset is all but confirmed and this was one of the first things I thought about when they said it would take a bit longer to make. Driveclub, to some extent, will be playable by most people through Plus. What better way to drive (hehe pun) an accessory than to use it on a "pack-in" title (I am aware it is not truly a pack-in title, but the widespread use of the game warrants the comparison).

 

If that headset is $300 or less and usable on more than Driveclub, I will buy it day one.

I have a feeling that they wanted this to be a premiere title for the PS4 and that this extra polish is going to help the game immensely. The game was also hoping to push 60 FPS by launch, so that may be a technical achievement they wanted to implement. 

 

We do not know, but I assume VR is playing a role.

If they are making a VR headset, think there would be one just for video or am I stuck with Sonys gaming headset bundled with this as well?

I'm fine with this, I have to admit I'm interested in the VR headset, can't be worse then the virtual boy.
