DriveClub, the exclusive PS4 arcade racer by Evolution Studios started with a troubled life on PS4. After a long delay, the game launched with completely broken servers which hampered the game’s experience, seeing how it is built around a connected world. This eventually led to layoffs at the studio yet despite all of this, the Evolution Studios stood by their game and addressed all connectivity issues, but has also brought an extensive list of DLC, many free, which include new tracks and cars.

Now comes news that DriveClub has raced past (couldn’t help myself) the 2 million units sold mark, prior to the release of their free PlayStation Plus Edition. And you know what? They deserve that milestone, seeing how DriveClub is one of the most fun games on PS4. More details after the jump.

As I wrote earlier today, Sony Mobile is not doing well with declining sales that are dragging down the company. One saving grace for Sony continues to be PlayStation which, if it wasn’t for their mobile arm, would catapult Sony even higher.

That’s because earlier today, Sony reported Q1 FY15 earnings and PlayStation once again led the pack and in doing so, even beat Sony’s own expectations for the powerful console. Those details after the jump.

Destiny Update 2.0 Will Bring Major Changes to Exotic Weapons

Destiny_Gjallarhorn

Along side the heavily anticipated The Taken King DLC will be Destiny update 2.0 and with it will come some major changes to weapons and in turn, likely change the way you play the game. Bungie has heard our complaints loud and clear and auto rifles will once again become more powerful and finally useful again.

Auto Rifle:

  • Increase base damage
  • Start damage falloff closer to the player to emphasize its role as a close to medium range weapon
  • Small reduction in base stability. Landing shots at optimal range is unaffected, but repeated precision hits require more weapon control to land consistently
  • Boost damage by 10% against AI combatants

Along side tweaks to the auto rifle and other normal weapons in your arsenal, Bungie is making major tweaks to exotic weapons like Gjallarhorn, Thorn, and Ice Breaker. After the jump, the full break down of weapons in Destiny Update 2.0.
