Bad news, everyone: Driveclub is joining Watch Dog's delayed club. In a statement, president Shuhei Yoshida said:

DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision — and I'm fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.

This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members' Instant Game Collection for launch. To be clear, DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released.

The exact new launch date is unknown, but it will be some time in early 2014. Now what will we play at launch?

It's one of those two times of year again. Your Playstation 4 is getting an update.

There's nothing mind-blowing in the update, which is turning the numeral dial up to 3.0. But there will be some reorganization and some new options to let you share those sweet, sweet frags.

According to the Playstation Blog, the most highlighted inclusions in the update will be the option to share videos taken on the console over Twitter and a new Playstation Plus section. The latter will aspire to try and pull all the membership features and games available into one place so you don't have to go search for it.

The rest of the changes are detailed here:

YouTube live: You'll see a new icon for YouTube on the Broadcast Gameplay Screen, accessible after hitting the Share button. Now you can live stream directly from your PS4 to YouTube. Livestreams will be viewable across YouTube.

PNG Screenshots: If you'd like your game screenshots to be in a higher quality format, you can now select PNG instead of JPEG. To access, press Share > Share Settings > Screenshot Settings > Image Format.

Events: A new hub for Events has been added to PS4, accessible from the home screen. This will give you an overview of activities taking place in the games you play most, as well as official broadcasts. For instance, here's an in-game racing event taking place in Project Cars, which you can register for directly from the Events hub.

Communities: PS4 users will have the ability to create communities based around shared interests, like games, genres, and more. Communities include a message board with general discussion, screenshots shared by players, and the ability to join parties / games.

Stickers: From the PS4 system's Messages app, you'll see a new option for Stickers. The 3.00 update will contain stickers themed around Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Knack, LittleBigPlanet 3, Resogun, and more. Instead of typing out a message, just send a sticker — like Drake looking at a watch, asking you to wait a minute."
