Good god, I can almost hear ZZZZ exploding over this, but here we go anyway ;)

Microsoft Press Release said:
"Forza Motorsport(TM)" (Microsoft Game Studios). "Forza Motorsport" is the first fully customizable racing simulation for Xbox. This groundbreaking game allows gamers to drive hundreds of the hottest cars in the world from more than 60 manufacturers at breakneck speeds. For gamers eager to put their reputation on the line against the best on Xbox Live, "Forza Motorsport" takes the checkered flag.
MS's attempt at a GT4 beater, it should get interesting now ;)

This will be very interesting indeed. Especially if MS manage to get damange modelling into the game, something which GT4 lacks in a big way. Well that and decent AI :)

I just looked on IGN and they have a direct feed movie from the Pre-E3 MS Press conference. It looks like they are using the same licenses as PGR2 as they have Ferrari's in the game.

I've seen this game in motion and it's stunning..............Even though it's a blatant GT rip off.

From what I've seen FORZA combines real driving with realistic car damage and sense of speed.

Damage and speed.........Aren't real in the GT series.........why?

There's a demo of this in the next OXM magazine. I've played it, to be honest it isn't that good, but saying that i'm not a massive fan of racing sims. Others will probably love the game :)

And with GT4 delayed in Japan again, this will more and likely beat its release date!!!!!!!!! :D Now that would be a laugh, just hope it's not as dull as DB says it could be.

The demo of this is excellent. Comparing this demo and the GT4 JAP demo, Forza is edging ahead in this battle. It's already got several advantages over GT4 and it's still got a few months to go. Roll on release day I say.

anything against konami?;)

no man, check the enthusia page - the preview videos there look mighty excellent, a lot more realistic in the physics term than both Forza and GT4.Maybe just my opinion, but a lot of guys at racing forums agreed with me :)

From Gamesradar :


[18/01/05 11:49]
Microsoft's Forza Motorsport shows off its 230-strong car list and those Ferraris


With Gran Turimso 4 charming pundits, gaining plaudits and winning podium places across the globe, Microsoft had to do something to steal the Sony game's thunder. But what?

While Polyphony's racer is ready to peak with its second PS2 incarnation, Forza Motorsport won't get underway until spring. How could they attract the world's attention? By revealing the entire list of all 230-dream machines? Hmmm. Show off yet more sumptuous screens? Nice. Whisper the word Ferrari? Ker-ching!

Just take a glance through the 230-strong list below and you will see many of the dream machines that Sony's flagship racer has always lacked. For along with those redheads bearing the famous prancing horse, there is also a plethora of Porsches from the feisty 959 to the effete but neat Boxer.

Just across the grid from that pair sits the square but muscular Pontiac GTO Hardtop, the ultra-lightweight Audi Le Mans Audi R8 and the sedate saloon of Volvo S60 R. And that is just scratching the glossy metallic surface. So go on, dive in.

Quad bikes are good though, from what I have heard ;)

One of these days there will be a game that actually hits when its announced, too many delays

Double Hamster power! :D

If the demo was like Toca2 then this game could be good. I much prefer realistice driving games. Stops the likes of Wrighty and Holio using completely dirty tactics to try and finish in 4th instead of 5th to last.....

I thought the demo was very similar to TOCA2, as in racing round Laguna Seca looked identical. The handling has yet to convince me, but hopefully you'll be able to tweak etc.

Wrighty and myself may have been involved in a little car bashing between ourselves, but vengeance was had in the end. As for using dirty tactics on other racers, I'm afraid as I use bumper cam, I cannot see who is either side of me, and I never deliberatly take anyone out, I may use them to lean on every once in a while going round a corner, but that is all, nothing to see here, move along please. ;)
