The purchase is only good as long as you're a member? That's different than other purchases via PS+. Usually discounted games are still yours even if your sub lapses. Would hate to lose this game just because I forgot to add a new card.

I have a problem with paying $50 for something that is completely conditional on you having membership.

Why not allow limited access? I mean you get 1/6 of the game for free, then pay 50 for the other 5/6 but can only ever access the full game when you are a PS+ member?

I mean I never intend on letting my PS+ membership expire so I would never be locked out of the other 5/6, but that won't be the case for everyone.

There should be anohter option to pay for the rest of the title if you wish to let your PS+ membership lapse.

As it is I'll download this game but if I like it I'll either buy it, or wait until it goes on sale. I'm not a big fan of racing games, and certainly won't be putting myself in a scenario where I could potentially pay $50 for something and not have access to it.

This will change soon. Sony (I hope) knows better and will fix it immediately. Even though the delay has tempered my hype, I should still cop in the end.

Two problems with this:

1) I understand free games lapsing on PS+...but to essentially pay full price for a game and it hinge on your willingness to keep renewing your PS+ leaves a bad taste. People can argue its similar to the MMO model, but in that model I still have the game even if I do not decide to renew my monthly subscription.

2) Sony made a huge deal of saying Drive Club was "Free" with PS+. While technically a bulked up Demo is, this is a far cry from what was originally promised.

Ehh.. either way I'm happy. I wouldn't normally buy this will but there's enough there to play a few races every now and then. I'll gladly take whatever it ends up being, a full game or just a demo on steroids.

I am confused by this game a little bit. Is there a single player offline mode? If not, wouldn't you have to have PS+ to play it anyway?

I do agree though, if owning the game hinges on a sub, it should be much cheaper, or free, or you should be able to unlock other areas in game.
