    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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
