I was just wondering can you play used PS4 games online such COD AW? Also is it worth getting the special editions of this game?

Also which racing game would you recommend. I was looking at Driveclub and NFS: Rivals.
Any other advice please!

Used PS4 games shouldn't give you any issues with playing online, as there aren't any that require an online pass. However, you will need an active PlayStation Plus subscription for online play. RRP is £39.99 for 12 months, though £30-ish is a perfectly achievable price if you shop around.

Special/collector's editions are generally only worthwhile if you're a collector, though for some games there's an additional level/skin/map or similar if you pre-order. CoD:AW had a "day zero" edition along those lines: http://www.callofduty.com/advancedwarfare/dayzero

As for racing games, while I don't play the genre all that much myself, I know that NFS:Rivals was fairly well-received. Driveclub had some serious issues with online at launch, but has since much improved. Be aware, though, that a PS Plus edition (i.e., free while you have an active PS Plus subscription) is due for release at some point, admittedly with reduced content.

I'm not a gamer but have learned what's going on by reading the comments on game deals http://www.hotukdeals.com/search?action=search&keywords=ps4&category=19&type=1&date_range=&sort_type=relevance8)

Used ps4 games can be played online, though you need an active playstion plus membership to do so. The special editions are a preference thing, usually I buy them if I want something (season pass etc) and its not stupidly expensive.

I'd recommend drive club, since they've patched it it's apparently a really great game.

There's car racing games aside from GT? :-O

Regarding racing games those 2 couldn't be more different. I would never recommend NFS since their all an abomination and as for driveclub, simply depends if your happy to race around tracks and nothing else.

In March you have Project Cars. This has received a massive amount of praise.
