Reminder: Hatsune Miku to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman tonight


I can't even
Oct 08

In the Club
Driveclub was supposed to be a launch day title for the PS4, but it was delayed for a while, pushing back until now. We got our hands on it at the E3 following the PS4 announcement last year and thought it needed more time in the oven, so a delay was actually welcome. But that was a long delay.
