Forza Motorsport 7 Is Microsoft's Killer Game of 2017

Racing games are a genre that often needs to build on the foundations of their predecessor and often reinvent the wheel (no pun intended) to innovate.

Those who love their racing games will have a blast.
It's a pity I'm not into racing games.
lots to play still..

bouzebbal31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

xbox owners will for sure have a blast with F7, but those who haven't bought an x1 for F5 or F6 wont do it for this one either.
And GT is coming out around the same time... that's the real killer in my eyes.

Woolly_31d ago

I don't think anyone would lose sleep over that... ^_^

Fans of each game don't give a crap who else buys the games so long as they can play their favorite game.

"And GT is coming out around the same time... that's the real killer in my eyes."

Hmm remains to be seen. If it can dethrone Forza that would definitely be impressive. Lets see 😎

bouzebbal31d ago

GT has a massive popularity.
This kind of game that sells a lot of consoles.
F7 will perform just like the previous ones and isn't a system seller.

@bouzebbal
"GT has a massive popularity."

And that is really the only main thing going for it since GT3, it's name. Reviews have shown that series is in deperate need of a reboot and GT Sport is trimming a lot of content. It's main focus will be the online which is quite ironic after all the negative press Microsoft and Ubisoft get for always pushing online.

The question is will Forza 7 be enough? I don't think so. 2017 is quite barren of any big release from Microsoft.

"F7 will perform just like the previous ones and isn't a system seller."

Right but I'm talking about quality of the game. If you mean sales then yes, GT will come out on top.

Rude-ro31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

@septic forza needs to get the throne first. Forza has released 5 games this gen alone... and one gt will outsell all of those combined...

This forza is literally the exact same as the last forza:.. but in x vision. Oooooooo

DarXyde31d ago

moldybread,

I didn't realize online would be such a big part of Sport. Good to know.

Wait a minute...

On a serious note, please stop making such statements on things you are misinformed about. Ask or do your own research.

Bigpappy31d ago

I'm not so sure that GT will come out ahead on sales when compared to Forza 7 either. First of all GET hasn't been selling all that well recently over like Tanya but recently no. Next is that force is releasing day and date on PC with the Xbox One version and it has a lot more Tech going on that GT by your mile so I think I'm PlayStation guys might be a little disappointed this year when it comes to Judy compared to force. Reviews are going to be much in favor of Forza and it's just going to be it's just too much Tech.

darthv7231d ago

Vehicular Manslaughter confirmed...

get it? Motorsport... killer game... (i'll see myself out)

Oh and @bouze, GT Sport may be a new GT game but it's not quite the GT game people are expecting as it seems like PD's focus was more into E-sports type of racing game. I thought GTS was really just GT7 under a different name but that is not what they have said or even eluded to during its development.

As big a GT fan that i am.... I may have to pass on this for now and hope a REAL GT7 is coming out at some point. They can say that it isnt in the works now but if GTS DOESN'T go the way they hope then you can bet your butt Sony/PD will get a GT7 out in a much quicker fashion to appease the fans.

It does seem like an end of an era if you know the history of GT. We have had two GT games per PS platform (sans the PSP) and this may be the end of that tradition. GTS sports (pun intended) the 2nd lowest number of cars (150) next to the original GT1 (140) as well as 2nd lowest number of tracks (28) next to GT2 (27). GT6 was the lowest selling GT game (5mil+) in the main series (2nd lowest if you count the PSP @ 4.6mil+).

PC owners will have a bigger blast. ;-)

From the article:

"While we’re curious how Yamauchi arrived at that exact number (85%?), this is good news all the same."

Dude, let´s be honest here. 85% of GT Sport content is offline? No mean to disrespect but, imo, it seems that all this online focus on GT Sport is back-firing and Yamauchi-san is not telling us the truth.

I hope i´m wrong, but i will not hold my breath. We shall find out soon enough.

forza 7, project cars 2 and gt sport all look great but I'm going for forza 7 this year. I was disappointed with the career in 6 so now that's improved and they have taken some of the best bits from horizon 3 it's a no brainer for me. over 700 cars at launch

QUIMICOMORTAL31d ago

riiight! but, Any new AAA exclusives among those lots? or just old games?

Comparing GT to forza 7 is like comparing Wii to PS3. Sure Wii sold more- but we know where the real quality is LOOLOLOLOL

Might check this one out on PC.

Robcha31d ago

But u hate Microsoft why give them money

Kun_ADR31d ago

As long as it is on PC and not Xbox he might be ok with it. Still, the money will go to MS either way.

ninsigma31d ago

You most who complain about Microsoft would still play their games right?? They just don't want Xbox. Two different things.

TheColbertinator31d ago

You dont have to like Microsoft to enjoy Xbox or PC.

You dont have to like Xbox or PC to like Microsoft.

You dont have to like Xbox to enjoy PC and vis versa.

You can purchase anything from Microsoft and still hate them. Microsoft will accept the cash regardless of your feelings towards them. Its just business.

Woolly_31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

his feelings don't matter... so long as he contributes to the sales lol

bluefox75531d ago

I don't think most people care about MS getting money, except the MS super fans, it seems to be their number one concern. In fact, I'd be encouraging it if I thought it would help them make the Xbox better, though I'm not so sure it would matter.

rainslacker30d ago (Edited 30d ago )

I don't really like MS that much, but I'll support them when they make products I want to buy.

How else would they know that there are people who are interested in those products if one doesn't buy them. It's easy enough to complain, but not showing support is just as important as showing support when it's what you want if you want actual change.

Where did I say I hate Microsoft, show me my post where I said that?

"Forza Motorsport 7 Is Microsoft's 'ONLY' Killer Game of 2017"

fixed

Bennibop31d ago

Was going to say this myself. The other problem is project cars 2, f1 2017 and gt sport 2017 are also releasing around the same time so that won't help with sales of the game.

ninsigma31d ago

That's true but it's healthy competition at the same time. Forza has its dedicated fans so it'll still sell well enough. And if overall it does get overshadowed by all the other racers this year then I could only imagine turn 10 will kick it up a notch again for Forza 8 to make sure it doesn't happen again. As it stands though 7 looks very nice and I think it'll stand up well with the other racers.

badz14931d ago

it depends though. the last Project Cars left a bit of a bitter taste with gamers in general considering how it was buggy and perform less optimal than the promised 60fps on consoles and then shortly after release they blatantly announced that they are gonna move on to PC2...with the original game still need fixing and contents! I don't know about others but I was like WTF? not enough scamming people for the 1st and they already committed to scam people the 2nd time? ALREADY?

InTheLab31d ago

Forza Motorsports is also Microsoft's killer game of 2015, 2013, 2011, 2009, etc...

Surely this will be the year Forza becomes a system seller ...

ImGumbyDammit31d ago

Forza 5 is the reason I bought my Xbox One.

LAWSON7231d ago

@Imgumby

You were better off with Forza 3 and 4, 5 was terrible.

InMyOpinion31d ago

I think Forza is the king of racing games but it isn't a system seller.

corroios31d ago

because they launch somekind of Forza every single year. A casual goes to the shop and see a much cheaper forza and buys it.

You can get Forza 5, Forza 6 and they are launching Forza 7. Then you still got Forza Horizon 2 and Forza horizon 3.

Only COD can get huge numbers every year because of the die hard fans of the multiplayer. A racing game can never achieve that. This will reach 2 to 2.5 millions.

Aenea31d ago

Well, honestly, I still don't have an Xbox One and if I get one it's because of the racing games....

Then again I'm not most people I suppose....

Dario_DC31d ago

I might get into to the npd top 10 this time around... Forza 6 sure didn't. Time for the Xbox gamers to buy this game.

RedDevils31d ago

What the hell are you doing on NPD? You putting your ass for sale???
