Ign has posted four new screenshots of 3 new cars for Forza Motorsport 2. Pagani, Corvette, and Lamborghini.
IGN was a little slow, they've been out for almost a week. I could have sworn this news was posted already as well.
Is very slow with everything you're not misstaken about this thread being posted just the other day.
But one tiny problem...notice the Coke ad? Is this the beginning of video games being saturated with ads?
Of course, when you're blazing past them at 200 MPH, who cares?
Since it's a real world track couldn't it be that on that particular track there were a coke ad ?
Do you guys honestly care if there is a billboard with an ad on it in a game if its used in the right context? I mean you go to sporting events or drive around the city you will see TONS of billboards and ads ....that is real life. So my games that are sims like Forza2 or Fight Night 3 I have ZERO problems with it. Sponsorship is a part of life and as long as it doesnt' hamper game play in anyway why should you care?
One thing I would love to see but doubt we will is games being discounted based on in game ads. I think this is gravy for them and the revenue is not substantial enough to really offset the price of a game. However...it might be enough for DLC similar to what took place with Gears of War & Discovery Channel.
which I feel will increase the realism, and Forza's production team can make a little more money and it doesn't take away anything from the game; then go a head and load up. If some ad money helps add a few cars or even allows us to put product labels on our cars, then I say go for it. I think it would be cool to deck out my competion formula F430, just like they do in real life. I wouldn't mind a Mountain Dew F430, with labels, colors, and all. How about a Discovery Channel or Military Channel Ferrari Challenge 575. That would add some more realism to online competion. Maybe even let companies form competion teams, like a Coke or Pepsi racing team. That would be cool too.
Agreed, on many of your points. My concern is with how easily this could get out of hand. Yes, the real tracks have those ads. Yes, ads are an everyday part of life. I'm just worried that with MS buying Massive, and in-game ads becoming more and more common, games may become as oversaturated with ads as your average website.
Of course, one COULD classify the Burger King games as advertisements.
if you could part of racing team, like the Pepsi racing team. Everytime you compete online line you could earn money or points for your team that you and your teammates could use to tweak everyones cars better. Or you could use it to get better track info and what tweaks would work best on a particular track; just like is done by real life by racing teams. Lets say you are part of the Coca-Cola racing team, and you get into an online match and you notice a competitor from the Pepsi team. One, you'd notice your competitor right away. Two, you'd know where they are on the track while racing and be able to really compete hard against this person. I can almost feel and see the realism it could add to the experience. Though your right that it could get out of hand.
Looks pretty lame.
This is suppose to match GT5? I sure hope not because if so they are releasing this way to early...
How can you compare this to GT5 when there is nothing much on GT5 yet. Sure it might or might not be as good as GT:HD but that's just your opinion. As I see it though, GT:HD still LOOKS better but we'll have to wait for when the final product is out and see if it is better or not. People already said the first Forza was better than GT4. Also, Looks don't make a game, gameplay makes a game.
This is suppose to match GT5, nope! this is in a total differnt sub genre in racing. You dont know what it looks like they haven't shown any real AI vs Player or Player vs player i doubt it will be boring as you try and keep your car in one piece on top of trying win the race.
Have you seen the new video with a later build lol you guys went from GTHD looks way better than Forza2 to well it's the same as GTHD and they havn't even turned all the polish and other features on yet. You sould check out the new vid with some more of the game turned on vs what's in these pics.
Theres much more real time things going on in forza2 compared to PGR3 and GTHD is just a part of an scraped game turned into a demo with lot of extra dev luv to make it pretty as they could with little taxing on the console due to extra resouces available, if GTHD was a full game GTHD would not look like that. lol Dev Balancing act.
This is a racing game, jeez, there are ads everywhere in in real life, filter them if you can. Like someone up there said, there wouldn't be a problem with racing and sports games.
There would be a problem if they'd start sticking a Coke ad on Mitchell's back in Ghost Recon series, or imagine some odd Tofu-add on Solid Snake's shoulder. That'd be odd.
so these graphics are somthing special are they?
this barely looks Next-Gen.
this game looks soooo friggin fake! the only decent bit it the shine over the cars. NOTHING ELSE.
although the BMW pic looks good, but thats the only one.
GranTurismo 4 on the PS2 looked more realistic than this Forza 2 junk.
PUT SOME EFFORT INTO THE GAME DEVELOPERS!
It looks like crap. This is supposed to be 360's flagship racer and it looks like absolute crap. And what new features is it bringing to the table? Auction mode is the only decent thing. What else? Nothing. This does look worse than Gran Turismo 4. Compare the screens if you don't believe me:
Gran Turismo 4:
http://uk.media.xbox360.ign... What car looks more real?
Enjoy Forza 2 fanboys
