Being forced to wait for several hours for a day one update to download takes the shine off buying a new game.

Driveclub's launch has been rocky, pockmarked with severe server issues, a stream of patches and the delay of the game's free PS Plus version.

Allow me to begin with my very best Andy Rooney impersonation: When I was growing up, there was no such thing as a "day one patch."
