VVV: "The final update also means we know for certain that every disc copy of Forza Motorsport 5 will come with 202 ultra high quality car models stamped onto them."
Yea ultra high quality Not like gt just importing all the old car models over Quality over quantity
couldn't you use that only bubble for a more instructive comment? whatever you say, 202 cars is ridiculous. whether there are 202 on disc or not we will never know it for a fact. and if you ask me, i prefer quality AND quantity
Ridiculously high or low?
200 cars is more than enough for me, in any game. I'm more concerned about the small amount of tracks, and Forza's reputation of DLC- milking... Especially sad to see that huge gorgeous Japanese mountain track missing.
Yi-Long "I'm more concerned about the small amount of tracks, and Forza's reputation of DLC- milking..." Which makes me wonder if this is why there are less cars and tracks than Forza 4. Turn 10 is one of the worst devs in the industry for milking DLC. It's far and away one of the biggest complaints on Forza forums over the years. Some have actually walked away from the series because of it. I purchased the season pass for Forza 4 and will never do it again. They still ended up bringing out several DLCs that weren't covered under the SP.
In case anyone hasn't understood the business model being used as of yet, to make the most money bigger companies are using free to play business models for extra revenue, only they're also charging full price for the game. So with your full priced game, you also have to pay for either a season pass, or buy cars and tracks individually or in packs via DLC. Don't see your favourite tracks or cars from the last game? They'll sell them back to you in a retro track pack or car pack, that's just the way it goes these days.
there are more than 220 premium cars in GT your comment is invalid
I don't care about GT. Hasn't been as fun of a game or "simulator" as Forza for ME. So don't give two sh*ts what is happening with that series. Funny when you break down the list at GT you have 10-20 of the same car broken down in years and model. Forza I can customize everything with the car which is the point.
"GT. Hasn't been as fun of a game or "simulator" as Forza" Forza is more accessible than GT. Most people equate that to being more fun. I love both series. As far as being a simulator. I would have to disagree. When you turn all the assist off on Forza it's still fairly easy to drive IMO. Turn the assist off on GT and it's really hard to keep your vehicle on the track unless you are completely dialed in. It took me a lot more time to master GT vs the time it did to get top times in Forza. Now I'm a vet in both. With the same car on the same track I average the same roughly the same times on each game. GT has me on the edge of my seat more. But I have a blast playing both.
Brutally, I am not trying to be an as here, I am just curious. Have you ever driven a car on track? I have and when you are driving perfectly, I think both games are very close. My problem is the second you try stepping out of line (trail braking for example) GT seems to just want to punish you. It feels like the tires just forget that they use to be able to grip. It is probably just me, but is just doesn't feel right unless you are following the exact driving style you are taught in racing school.
Awww poor child. Why did you feel a need to drag gt into this forza thread. Feeling insecure much?
Yah I agree with you to a certain EXTENT 1000+ does not impress me when half the cars I'll never play with. But the game itself is GREAT and better than Forza so far IMO
Im perfectly fine with that number. Every single car can be viewed in autovista mode and they have an extremely high level of detail. I am super excited for this game. I love the Forza series.
That number seems a bit low, until you realize they will have Jezza, The Hamster, and Captain Slow do commentary on each car... I literally might buy a friggin' Xbox One just for that alone... (and Dead Rising 3)
I never knew that! That's brilliant!
Got a source that says they comment on each car? I've only heard they have a small commentary before each series event.
Whoops my mistake, they will only do that for a certain collection of cars on Career mode. And not every single car. Still, we get to race the Stig!
I don't get it. Your only 1080p 60fps game is a racer which is a downgrade from the previous game content wise, but only have better visuals which seems to no longer matter to the Xbox camp.
These xbox fanboys are big hypocrites. You see when ps4 starts to show its superiority in multi platform games, they will resort to same garbage argument, "graphics doesnt matter". Now see them, praising ryse and forza for graphics. Pffft hahah I lol at them.
Well they are very skilled in the movement of goalposts when it suits their specific arguments you see lol
completely agree with both of you, such hypocrites. The people who buy Forza5 and doing them selfs in, cos they will see how good native 1080p 60fps looks and want more games to be like that, this is when they will shyly look at the PS4 proudly standing at top.
Atlesst the xbox one has games :/ what game are you getting at kz or knack? or both hahaha if you can call knack a game
You know it's only those extreme fanboys that are going wishy washy saying 1080p/60fps doesn't matter and then gloat about Forza 5 being 1080p/60fps. Oh well. I'm actually getting excited to play Forza 5. Going to wait it out though until early next year though.
Haven't you heard?. The new xbox fanboys slogan this gen is "Less is more!!". Lesser resolution, framerate, exclusives and now cars number is better than more. The only exception is the price of the console in which more is more lol!.
you couldn't use your one bubble for a more productive comment, oh wait this is NatureOfLogic nevermind...
202 on disc and 100 on disc dlc. Like seriously wait untill hackers popout and see all those on disc dlcs you payed for (either for this game or any other one)
I agree that Gran Turismo is crap! I want to be able to rewind time like my fantasy arcade racer called Call Of Gotham War Racer. What kind of 'simulator' reflects the real world with a complete lineage of makes and models to compare to each other? Oh..... wait. Even just GT's premium models out number Forza's complete list. Also, if I am playing GT5 I am happy with all car models. Yes, replays look better with 16 premium models, but game play is still great. I am not driving in 'Baby View' from the rear of the car model.
Dan Greenawalt: It's been a successful program for us, having the paid DLC. Those that don't want it don't have to get it, and those that want it can buy it. That say it all, the cocky statement make me sick
Had no plans of getting Xbone but I must say I am disappointed in Turn 10
I'm sorry, but 202 cars on disc is just dismal. I'm a huge Forza and Xbox fan but this is really making me question where my loyalties lie. The whole point of a new game is to showcase progress, not to take put us back into the dark ages. If anything Forza 5 should feature even more cars than 4. And fine, they say its down to the new detailing of the cars and being able to view them all in Forza Vista mode(which is fantastic). But if that's the case then why don't they rather make all cars available from the start and release Vista packs weekly(at a minimal cost)instead of ridiculously priced car packs. The crux of a racing sim is being able to race as many cars as possible, from the origanal Golf GTI all the way to the new Lotus E21. Not to view them in a garage at the cost of all that. The whole idea behind next-gen was to improve upon all aspects,yet they'll be doing the exact opposite. It's madness! This game is going to cost between $70-$80 when it comes out here in South Africa and now they want us to pay more for cars that should already be there, what the f*@k! Microsoft(and developers in general)need to stop being such money hungry c*%$ts and make a game as good as it can be. Not as well as their accountant tells them to. I was so looking forward to this game but now I can't even bear to look at it. Next-gen, you continue to dissapoint me...
