Three Weeks Later, DriveClub Still Doesn’t Work Properly

On October 7, Sony released the racing game Driveclub for PlayStation 4. Today, October 28, the game still doesn’t work as intended — and Sony still hasn’t said a word about refunding the folks who paid $US60 for it.

Driveclub‘s server problems have been well-documented. For the past three weeks, players have found themselves unable to access many of the racing game’s features; although Driveclub does have an offline mode, its biggest selling points involve connecting with and racing against other players, fighting for ranks as you try to climb the game’s various social leaderboards.
