Che from Turn 10 studios posted 3 new screenshots of their upcoming racing simulator Forza Motorsport 3 to celebrate the 4th of July.
I just posted the last pic in the story posted a few hours ago on N4G. The two top pics are very new, they must be not even a hour old because they were not on the Forza site an hour ago and now they are. Even the first story posted today here on N4G was posted before the last pic in this Neogaf link. Point being will there be more pics in the next hour? and if so can we just wait until we know for sure they're done posting them lol.
I think Ive just become a car sim fan with Forza 3
While i am sure the game will be awesome, but i hate bullshots like this that is retouched so many times they look fake.
/\/\/\/\/\ I agree Tarasque. When i seen them i said to myself wonder if they could touch these up anymore than they already are.
They posted 3 new screens to celebrate 4th of July? AMAZING!! No they should have released a new trailer IMO. That would at least be a little bit 'wow', not just 3 lame screens on the 4th of july :--(
Get a force feedback wheel and you will be a sim fan for life. I love all racing games but IMHO nothing plays better then a sim racer on a good wheel. I play the GT series on a Logitech G25 but it wont work on the 360 so I just ordered the Fanatec Porsche 911 S and a new c0ckpit from Fanatec as well. I can't wait to get this set for when Forza 3 hits retail. I might pick Forza 2 back up just to get use to the wheel and get reacquainted with the Forza series.
turn 10 looks as though they feel very confident in forza 3, and they should, this is looking very good indeed.... can't wait for tomorrow for a few more shots!
why is that so hard to believe. These are most likely taken from the photomode. Which i see no problem in using that because it will be in the game and the gamers can have their pics look that good. So please stop trying to sway people by saying they are bullshots, when they are not. Same for GT, if they use their photomode shots, then i'm fine with that because it's ingame and not misrepresenting the game. As long as the gamer can get that same kind of gameplay and results, then there is no problem with it. See, the problem is, many of you are PS3 fans and fans of GT who have never really played forza. If you check out the Forza 2 part of www.forzamotorsport.net website, you would see a lot of gamer pics that look amazing and it's all ingame photomode shots. So as long as the gamer can do the same stuff, then i have no problem with the developer using that mode. I've taken pictures of my cars and they look awesome on the site. So please stop with all the misplaced negativity. I've attached some pics from Forza 2 by a gamer known as "goingtoooofast", that's his gamertag. And he used photomode and that's how his pics came out. So, see what i mean, as long as the game is using ingame assets and nothing retouched then it's totally fine with me. I hope that explains where i'm coming from.
Only Persons with the most Ridiculous Brains can say These are Lame.
No kidding I left my PC showing the top screenshot, went out back grabbed a beer and drank it, came back in looked at my PC and was amazed when entering the room seeing that screenshot on my 25" PC screen (in 720p from the forza site.)
It seems that GT prologue has a slight advantage over the graphics versus forza. Not much but u can tell a difference. I do however, give forza some props standing up to the king of racers.
I think I will wait to see both in motion on my HDTV before passing judgement.
GT = king on PS ; Forza = King on XBOX Now please, nobody right now cares about GT5P ok ?! THIS IS FORZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !
"give forza some props standing up to the king of racers." Forza has beaten "the king of racers" in reviews every since it became a franchise. In the real world GT was dethroned back in 2004. Also, Forza 3 looks just as good, if not better than GT5. And will definitely have more and better features/better physics.
GT5 is definitely the O.G. on the scene, but anything we have seen of GT5 was most likely CGI so far. It's probably safe to say GT5 will look a lot like GT5 prologue. When you compare GT5 prologue and Forza3, at best they are equal in appearance, at worse depending on the screenshot, Forza3 looks superior. I think GT5 will be a solid equal to Forza3 when it comes out, and that is only in graphics. Gameplay I think will go to Forza.
Don't mention GT5P. This is how flame wars start. Forza looks very nice too.
NOBODY CARES!!!! Leave!!!
It's like it looks better with every screenshot they release.This is so a day one purchase, when you consider all the work and details that go into this series, it's not even hard to justify the $60 cost. I can't afford not to get this masterpiece.
It looks as though Forza 2 was a stop gap released to give the fans something to play as well as give Turn 10 more networking and 360 development experience. This looks to be such a huge improvement, dwarfing the gap between Forza 1 and 2 despite saying on the same console.
These look even better than they did in the Eurogamer article. Very pretty looking. The angled shot on the black Lexus is insane.
I'm a huge PS3 and Gran Turismo fan, but I have to Admit that this looks incredible, props to turn 10, it's really hard for me to see which game nails the better visuals, this or prologue... I think the reflections might need work on Forza 3? No? Here are some Prologue shots http://www.gtrblog.com/wp-c... http://www.threespeech.com/... http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3...
I dunno man, those look pretty dam good.

http://img387.imageshack.us... I cant tell which one is real. I think the top one is Forza, am I right?
Wow, impressive stuff All Time Greatness.
most of the shots that people post aren't from the game itself, and they're heavily touched up. While GT might still hold in edge in terms of what the actual cars look like, the levels in forza are ahead of GT, the difference between the 2 racing games graphically is next to nothing imo. GT looks absolutely amazing, but the game in motion isn't half as good looking as the photos. Even the gameplay from doesn't look nearly as good as the replay videos from the game. Either way both games will be great. Time for the disagreeers to come in a steal bubbles.
We can get an exact comparison of both games. Same cars, same positions, etc etc only then one can really say which is better. While I'm not a big fan of Forza, Forza 3 looks good. Can't wait for both GT5 and Forza 3 comes out, then these comparisons will be so awesome.
holy mother of god !! ... can u imagine how it would look in hd... wow ... i'm not much of racing fan but i'm sure most of em here are pretty excited about this... will they release a demo ?...

You know, post number 1 looks like it was rendered on teh power of ps3. I guess we can blame that on the lazy developers?
So to celebrate Independance Day they give you two shots of Japanese cars and one of a Japanese track? This is a must buy though along with GT5 for my PS3 both will be great games.
All time greatness, i left an accidental disagree In the past iv'e defended GT5 purely on it's better visuals over Forza.Certainly there has always been something special about how Polyphony's graphic engine handled light.The cars looked like they had stupid amounts of polygons and it just looked a whole lot nicer in fairness Iv'e looked back over GT5 shots and they're still gorgeous as they ever were but the shots i'm seeing of Forza are just as staggering and a little bit more so - the cars are beautiful and the scenery is very impressive in scale Possibly GT5 has slightly better lighting but then i look over a particular Forza3 shot and i rethink that straight away Certainly hdr is playing a big part too this generation for certain games and this one appears to handle that very well Only a fool would have said Forza2 looked any where near as good as GT5 regards to realism from the visuals but Forza3 is an absolutely different beast Like many here this is a day 1 for me as well and to be honest that's probably because of the graphics
I agree man, in my opinion the car models are about equal but I think Forza's environments look better, at least from what we've seen. Forza 3's graphics are sick, but Forza truly stands out in features and physics. I think this game is going to get amazing reviews.
Sorry but that's unreal what you are stating when we look at these: http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3... http://images.gamersyde.com... http://images.gamersyde.com... http://images.gamersyde.com... Then when we compare gameplay vids it's a no match and Forza looks cartooney in comparison to GT5P: http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
This is just me personally but I sincerely believe the shots All Time Greatness posted a couple of comments up look better than those. Some may disagree. No need for a flame fest.
all your video's are showing to me is that gt uses sprite, 2d tree's, and there's a lot of white wash/simulated hdr and shiney cars. the more I see actual gameplay from GT the less and less impressed I am by it.
Wow that's looking so good. To all the GT5P bumper car fans out their here is a video for you to compare too. It's suzuka circuit. Bumper cars FTW!!!! http://www.gametrailers.com... 51 seconds guy dashes through grass and uses a car to bump him through a turn, EXTREMELY REALISTIC!! Try that on Forza and watch how long it takes you to even get through the grass. edit::Ya I know, but they're obviously all over this story so figured what the hell. Oh and I like GT I just like making people feel stupid. I could care less about ya'lls console "war"
Why? A bit further up the page you slam someone for mentioning GT5 then you go and post a video link yourself in an attempt to mock GT5.
Well the almoust 2 year old demo has no damage, that's why you can use a car to bump yourself through a turn and as for the grass, don't you know that GT5P offers the option for more advanced driving physics? I also see Forza 3 doing the same in the vid I posted, so I really don't know what you are talkin about. What should really concern you is that an almoust 2 years old demo still looks better and in the same time offers twice as many cars on the track than Forza.
I play GT5 prologue and i do that all the time.Funny thing is that, a stunt like that is impossible even in the 1st Forza talk less of Forza 2. In Forza 2, it's a guaranteed last position/death warrant if you try to use the grass to cut corners or bash you opponent to gain an advantage but in Gt5 prologue, it seems to be an advantage.
The disappearing bmw.
@ green lol..
Indeed there is a lot more going on under Forza's bonnet and that is additionally impressive - just the amount that's clearly crammed into the physics side of things, it should comfortably take the crown Turn 10 have obviously worked very hard on this and it really does show
Forza 3 looks cartoon ? lool Forza 3 Looks Amazing , maybe the game with better graphics out there and have been made in 2 years...you know what 2 years are ??? 2 YEARS ... 2 YEARS ... imagine whay they can do in 4 years...they will put 24 cars on tracks and 1000 if they had 4 years... Turn10 is AMAZING , no one can touch rhem ,2 years and they make this...no one can touch them! 5 Years = GT5 2 Years = Forza 3 And looks like Forza 3 will take the crown...in 2 years...lol
Err you do know that GT5 will offer much more cars, tracks and events than Forza 3, do you? I wouldn't be surprised if GT5 has more content than all Forzas combined lol Forza doesn't look cartooney when compared to GT? http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gamersyde.com/st... You obviously need glasses, GT's much superior lightning and shadows is what makes this title much more photorealistic than Forza.
lol more cars is the only thing GT5 will have more than Forza, you will know this to be true when you see reviews. Gran Turismo won't have as many features as Forza...thats why there is 400 cars instead of 800....they are putting those people to work on online features/customization/auction house/autotuning/career features. Things that GT5 wont have.
Notice you said features and not content. You are right about features, Forza will probably offer more customization etc. and GT will probably like always have this stylistic and sterile menu and career design. But you are wrong about content and you are obviously mixing it up with features. GT will not have just more cars, but also much more tracks, stuff like Rally, Nascar and so many events that it will take you like a year to beat them all. You obviously did't play a full GT game if you think cars is the only thing GT5 will have more than Forza.
Flopza WaterSports 3. It took them 2 next-gen Forza games and they still failed to match GT5's graphics, they ended up making a fake arcadey looking enhanced version of PGR4 which by the way looks better then Forza3
Hmm, still not working.
5 Years anyone??
Its looking better than ever, Can't wait for it. Thanks very much Turn 10
ahahahahha GT fans are trying so hard to down play fm3 but it not working.
Respect to Turn10, you guys never fail to deliver.
Look at the hands grabbing the wheel in Forza3, they flippin looks like one of those 3 fingered robotic hands trying to grip a pole lol http://mecha.skku.ac.kr/sou... They even look very realistic Copare this footage of GT5's in-car view (Watch in HD) http://www.youtube.com/watc... to Forza3's in-car View (Videos in HD) http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
When you show 2 gameplay trailers and not one gameplay and one replay, and both are either cam or direct off screen trailers. PD does a great job of making the replay look much better then the gameplay.
replays looks better only in 3rd flying camera. Standard camera for hood, in car, over car etc have the same graphic like in game...
lame excuse but anyways heres 2 screenshots of the same car Forza3 http://cdn.forzamotorsport.... GT5 http://www.wallpaperez.net/...
GT bullshot, wallpaper used for promtional content vs a screenshot of forza 3... Notice how the white car is motion blurred but the blue car infront isnt? Notice how the ground underneath the blue car is motion blurred and yet the car still isn't? Notice the touch-up errors on the bottom back wheel of the blue car, and behind the back left wheel of the ferrari? Notice the lack of proper alliasing on the back scaffolding, even though it's blurred, and how there's almost none on the cars? You've been duped man, what you're looking at is a touched up image with some in game assests.
That Forza shot looks awesome
Xi both are touched up. GT montion bulr was added and more complex AA polygons and lightning are the same as in actual gameplay. Forza team added some more complex aa. That's all.
There's more than just better AA, the lighting is different than in the game, just like on all the replays that GT uses, they have a type of simulated raycasting lighting system that plays in the replay, the opening cutscenes and when the car is placed in the fictional settings, or any promotional work. If you watch replays or look at screens, there's a lot more whitewash/simulated HDR, and many times the roof of the cars are almost completely white. http://www.cynamite.de/imgs... http://img179.imageshack.us... http://ruliwebimg.empas.com... http://www.cynamite.de/imgs... http://pici.se/pictures/eSV... yet somehow, none of the screenshots that ever get posted with the offical text along the bottom ever have the same effect. http://mos.futurenet.com/re... http://img176.imageshack.us... http://www.funps3.com/wp-co... funny how that happens if it's the same lighting... They also up the poly count on the cars during the replay and they increase aa, as well as increase the resolution from 720 to 1080. Theres a reason it takes them so long to model a car, because they make a lower poly game model, then a high poly replay model. In the forza screen, all they do is up the AA. It's fustrating to see people duped by this type of market strategy, most of the people who claim GT5p looks better probably don't even own GT5p. If they did they would know that the difference between what the 2 racers look like on screen are marginal.
Those are some nice pics. I only see 1 flaw in the whole set. On the Infinity, the quarter panel's wheelhouse looks a little jaggy and not truly round. The same goes for the area where the A pillar and uniside meets the door glass seal. But that is not as noticable. Also looks like the edge of the road gravel is being improved upon. Compare to the pics of Suzuka.
boo on pics of japanese cars on the 4th of july, why not show some of the muscle cars?
Jesus, how many batches of screenshots are they going to release for this game!? I've seen one like almost every day for the past week. Someone over at Turn10 must have a lot of time on their hands. Turn10 devs, if you're listening, save something for a surprise when we finally get the game!
Well, considering that there's 400 cars, 100 tracks and limitless customization, I doubt we've seen anything really.
I prefer batches of screenshots to batches of delays. How 'bout you?
There`s a lot of cars.
Forza 2 was the bomb online and with the insane amount of customization. Forza 3 will no doubt scores in the elite 92% plus on Metacritic when it is all said and done.
