If you don't have Forza5 for your xb1 you are missing out on one awesome racer well done turn 10.

dantesparda1645d ago

So then why are fans complaining about the content then?

andrewsqual1645d ago

@dantesparda They aren't. That is a lie spread by fanboys. Forza 5 is also better than GT6 graphically and showcases the Xbox One because it does 1080p 60fps even though GT6 does too :P

truefan11644d ago (Edited 1644d ago )

As an xbox gamer this is a disrespectful comparison, to compare last gen to current gen. Forza is the best racing game to date, even with the stupid micro transactions. Drag racing is very fun and the drive-atar has made the game very challenging. You actually have to practice, many racing games are not like that.

ambientFLIER1644d ago

GT6 is 1440x1080 and 30-60fps, more often closer to 30. Forza 5 is 1920x1080 locked at 60fps with higher detail cars and tracks. That's a good difference.

@ ambientflyer

Lol, so pathetic, just like your X1, so sad. You're so delusional. Forza looks like crap for next gen

It's pretty sad comparing graphics from a last gen console to now, even though GT6 looks impressive for having very old hardware.

hduce1645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

@urwifeminder I bet you some of the people that disagreed with you never even played Forza on the Xbox One. I'll even take it one step further, I bet you at least half of those disagrees you got from people probably never even played Gran Turismo 6.

urwifeminder1644d ago

Yeah perhaps but the joy this game gives me can not be contained.

CoryHG1645d ago


Bahahaha as it should, it's a next generation system, but there's not much of a graphical difference. And the lack of content is fact, not some fanboy "crap". Either there's things to do in the game or isn't. 250 cars? LOL. Microtransactions 5

durran31644d ago

I really really dont care about 1000 cars. I dont need Honda Civics, Toyota Corollas and other cars that sound all the same. I want PREMIUM cars and the BEST cars that I can virtually drive around. I dont play racing games to drive a Hyundai Sonata or a Yaris. So cut the "LOL only 250 cars" bullshit. No one really cares.

I have played GT, GT2, GT-ASpec, GT-5 and they are all amazing games but GT has extreme excessive cars that I never ever ever cared about. In all reality I probably didnt even drive a total of 100 cars so do i need 700 like it was in GT5? Not really..

What I care about is Premium Cars like the Mclaren P1 more than I do about a Civic. Quality of Contect my friend Quality of content ANYDAY especially when it comes to racing games.

ambientFLIER1644d ago (Edited 1644d ago )

Yes feldman9000, you're right...Turn 10 should have just done what Polyphony did for GT5 and fill the rest of Forza 5 with ugly cars and tracks from Forza 4, just for the sake of numbers, instead of starting from scratch.


There's plenty of graphical difference and if you had played both on a true 1080P tv instead of trolling youtube vids, you'd realize that.

The GT series is a joke when it comes to car counts. There are literally hundreds of cars that only differ by special edition paint jobs or which side the steering wheel is on, or trim levels. I've seen it myself. Dozens of almost identical Skylines and Civics, and most of the ones that are unique, are PS2 models!

Forza has 250 next-gen cars made from scratch. That sounds just fine to me.

quaneylfc1644d ago

how are they even being compared? on how many jaggies each one has?

I agree Forza 5 is an awesome game. Enjoying it a lot.

durran31644d ago

lol i love how your getting disagrees for what your enjoying. This site never ceases to amaze me

LogicStomper1644d ago

And mentions of the irrational disagrees always gets disagrees.

Nocando1645d ago

So I guess this means the Ps3 is more powerful than the X1?

blakstarz1645d ago

No, both games are just equally fun to play, nothing to do with power.

pennywhyz1644d ago

And my PC is more powerful then both those consoles put together.Whats your point.

hennessey861645d ago

It's not even close, forza 5 is on a different level graphically

FragMnTagM1645d ago

I know this site is run by Sony fanatics, but you are really going to disagree with hennessey86 that Forza is graphically superior?

Gran Turismo 6 looks great (at least the premium cars) for a last gen console. It simply does not look nearly as good as Forza 5 though.

Which one is the better game is purely subjective, but the graphics being better is not, unless you are blind.

dantesparda1645d ago

Seriously stop whining that this site is ran by "Sony fanboys". No, its not! its about equal between them. Notice how many disagrees Sony fanboys get on this site and how often they get tagged for trolling. Its probably like 55-45% for the ratio of Sony fanboys vs MS fanboys

gigoran1645d ago

So wait... you are arguing that a next gen titles looks better than a last gen title? You're making this claim publicly? That's like saying a car is faster than a bicycle. There is nothing to gloat about. You may as well just say "hot water is hotter than cold water ahhh durrrrrrrr".

Oh I tell you what... since you think it's ok to compare games of different generations, lets compare your wonderful forza 5 to the PCs project cars. Whoops! Guess your own logic failed you!

FragMnTagM1645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

Both of you are ignorant. I am not arguing. I am not the one that posted a comparison video. I just thought it was stupid that he had so many disagrees when it is a no brainer that Forza 5 looks better. Just like it would be a no brainer that Project Cars would destroy Forza 5.

I don't even have Forza 5. I may get it in the future. I may even get Project Cars, as I have a PC that can handle maxing it.

I seriously doubt your ratio is even close to being accurate. I frequent news for every platform on this site, not just one. Whenever I go into a Sony based article, there is rarely anyone from the Microsoft side in those articles.

On the other hand, in any Microsoft article, good or bad, there are always a ton of Sony people either twisting the good news as bad or trolling the bad news.

I game for the fun of gaming and enjoy reading about what is coming next. I currently have a 360, gaming PC, XBOX One, 3DS, Genesis, N64, SNES, and will be picking up a PS4, Vita, and a Wii U.

Screw your distorted views on things. I was simply making an observation.

hobbit1531645d ago

@FragMnTagM Agree 100%, This site does lean way to the left, toward Sony. Ratio 80-85% Pro Sony. Maybe 10-15% Pro Microsoft. Anytime there is Sony news even if it is bad, Sony fans on here twist it to make it sound good. Anytime there is Microsoft news on here, even if it is great news, Sony fans twist it to make it sound like bad news.

gigoran1644d ago

So someone posting a video to insinuate that an xbone game is much better than anything playstation has to offer by comparing it to a game made for sonys last gen system isn't ignorant in any way, yet I am?

Your for logic is brain damaging...

JasonKCK1644d ago

"Seriously stop whining that this site is ran by "Sony fanboys". No, its not!"

Yes it is, get out of denial.

These low quality videos on the internet never show an accurate representation of how the games look on an actual display while being played.

It's why a lot of console-only people think games on consoles and PC look "pretty close". But when I compare them on my own display the difference is often quite massive.

You might think GT6 and Forza look fairly close in this video, but if you actually see them you realize how wide the gulf really is. Graphics are getting so good that it becomes all about the detail.

Nocando1645d ago

I was actually being sarcastic and wanted to see how many agrees I got. These Ps3 vs. Xbox One graphics articles are an attempt to further downplay the XB1. By even comparing, you have instantly knocked the XB1 into "last gen".

curtis921645d ago

Just my opinion but I bought an xb1 for forza 5, despite being severely disappointed with the roster being half of 4 as well as the track selection, but I figured hey it's next gen, gotta be good, right?

I don't think so. I've put in about 10 hours and I honestly am not impressed. I've said it before, but it honestly doesn't feel next gen at all. They did a great job rendering full interiors of cars, but beyond that it's forza 4.5. Only with half of everything. Then you factor in the BS micro transactions and the audacity to charge an additional $50 for 60 more cars and it's a slap in the face.

Kurisu1645d ago

Audacity...I love that word.


Eonjay1645d ago

I really am hoping that this doesn't become the standard of next gen. Micro trans I mean. I think we will find out when GT7 hits. Paying an extra 50 for 60 cars is crazy. Are they selling the game separately from the content.

webeblazing1645d ago

well when alot of console only gamers only focus on bashing the competition and praising their favorite console no matter what, this is what happens. short shortsightedness will lead to bad things for all gamers down the road.

they new slogan should be "this is only the beginning"

ambientFLIER1644d ago

Curtis - a PS fanboy disappointed by an xbox game that he has bashed in the past?? NO WAY !!!! SHOCKER !!!

curtis921637d ago

I'm sorry you're mad my opinion does not reflect yours but the amount of money I've spent on MS systems and Xbox games actually gives me complete freedom to express my opinions because they're based on what I've played, not speculative. Your immature overreaction to my opinion shows me where you're at.
