'Forza Motorsport 5' exclusive: Nearly a decade of dominance comes to Xbox One

The racing genre is by far one of the most competitive genres in the gaming industry today, and one of the most popular and successful franchises within it is without a doubt, Forza Motorsport.

This series first debuted nearly a decade ago during 2005 and it was one of the last exclusives to hit the Xbox, before the debut of the Xbox 360. Well, fast forward eight years and here we are with Forza Motorsport 5 being one of the first exclusives to hit the Xbox One.

As we are only a matter of weeks before we all witness history and the launch of the third iteration of the Xbox, Examiner had the opportunity to speak exclusively with the creative director of Turn 10 Studios, Dan Greenawalt.

I did not know this was on the original Xbox. Looks good and it looks like it will make a lot of race fans happy.

Was there day one with the original xbox and 360 and will carry on the launch tradition with my xb1 been with the series since the start.

Not there Day 1 with original Xbox, didn't hit until near the end of the console's lifespan around 2005. I think you are thinking of PGR which I sorely miss :(

What's crazy is Gran Turismo has been out almost 7 years longer and yet Forza has almost caught up as far as numbered sequels go.

i think he's talking about day one of the release of the game rather than day one of the console itself

I always felt Forza was the spiritual successor to GT2 which was my favorite in the series. Got this one on pre-order Day One. :)

DeathOfTheFanBoy1839d ago

You're not the only one that feels that way, GT2 was AMAZING, GT3 good but Forza stepped it up IMO.

Death1839d ago

GT2 is probably my favorite racer to date. If Polyphony did a HD remake I would be one of the first inline. None of the GT's after were "bad", just not the same.

Death I agree I have not felt any gt game has been as god as 2 but for me Forza has improved with every version and for me it is unrivalled online. I have been more excited about the games on the wiiu the back end of this year than what the one and ps4 offer as I'm bored of all the same fps and games like ac yea on year release but as soon as I saw Forza 5 I pre ordered a xbox one and can't wait to get my console and game in a few weeks.

What are you looking forward to on the WiiU? I picked one up over the summer for the kids and have been very impressed with it so far. I can't wait to see how else they impliment the second screen.

mcstorm1838d ago

Well so far I have got Pikmin 3, sonic lost worlds, windwaker HD and Wii Party u for the family and ive enjoyed them all so far. But I also have Mario world 3d, super smash bros, Mario kart and dk on pre order too. I do think the Wiiu is very under rated and I hope they can get the sales up.

The main reason I'm getting it is because I'm really interested in how the new controllers work in tandem with it. That and the Drivatar feature sounds kinda cool.

I hope the online community from FM4 transfer over. I always loved doing those improbable drift races.
