I really cant stand when companies use grandiose and sweeping comments/advertising. Really gets on my nerves. But other than that, this and F2 might be a reason to get a 360. However, I also look forward to GT5. The audi advertising, is a little much.

thanks for posting, didn't know there was going to be another one. still play the second one.
road courses = shit yes!
cockpit views = yes please (but how will it adapt to modifications?)
also good ot hear they're gonna keep refining the audio too.

LTSmash 06-02-2009 01:04 AM

If this has GTR type gameplay (most likely not though:(), I will be way excited. But the visuals from the video look spectacular. Thanks for posting.

clutch-monkey 06-02-2009 01:06 AM

it's a mix, it's part sim (enough to be challenging) but with arcade elements, especially when you turn the aids on.
that's why i lol'd when they said they rise above the arcade and sim categories...it's just a mix of both.
nowhere near live for speed for example. but a little better than gran turismo

Finally in car view....welcome to 1990.

it easy to be better than Gran Turismo, from every point of view, except the redundant presence of similar cars, like the bazillion limited edition R34s.

Nice sounds simulation, nice simulation. deal.

Finally, a Forza 3 video that isn't Rick Astley.

Roentgen 06-02-2009 06:11 AM

I'm so jealous it's only for Xbox... I wish it's on PC... T_T

fisetdavid26 06-02-2009 06:28 AM

Looks great, my 360 has been spending too much time in its box in my wardrobe. I shall use it again.

RacingManiac 06-02-2009 07:28 AM

Can you use G25 on XBox360?

mclaren_crazy 06-02-2009 09:32 AM

well, I had been counting the days for this one........I got the TRROD last night though.....my parents thought I was fighting with my gf I was swearing and yelling so much

digitalcraft 06-02-2009 09:54 AM

Sorry to hear that, my first one did that too.

This game looks really good. I always thought that race sim games didn't do the races quite right, I wanted some system where you look them up online or in simulated newspapers and register a calendar, and it looks like they're coming up with something similar (sort of like Tiger Woods golf tournament calendar system I guess?), I'm so excited about that. They could have the graphics exactly the same and I'd still be excited.

My problem with this game is that, if the last one pushed both the graphics and the calculations to the 360 limits, what is the calculations going to be when you dump more resources into visuals. Given a finite amount of power, something has to give. Im guessing that this wont be as powerfull as FM2. My 2cents
