Turn 10 just released the latest installment of their Weekly Pitpass Report, containing three brand new screenshots and a 720p video.

Gotta say based just on the story screens this game is making leaps and bounds in graphical polish.
I just watched the 720P vid. That is some of the most fantastic replay footage I have yet seen. OMG!
The sound is amazing! And look at the sky!
I must say they're clearly not done with the polish as they seem to be "like what dude up a couple of posts said" they're making leaps and bounds each day. The enviroments are looking Photo real also; its as if they could have cared less what the world looked like in earily showings; they just wanted people to get a feel of the car mechanics at first etc.
Its amazing they were able to pull off so much color and still keep it fairly Photo Real the colours almost match the range of realality (Tree's, Grass, Ski, complex color depth of paints etc).
Most games the devs only way to acheive Realism is to Color filter the games and rob them of real life colours in order to make the average person think less color means not as cartoony thus tricks them in thinking less color is real. It could be hardware capability vs other and past consoles that allow turn 10 to do this.
The amount of stuff you can do and see in this game, its like everything you ever wanted in a racer.
trailer looks good.
Just can,t wait to play this baby.
Cant wait to buy my real life car in this game and get a picture of it with glowing brake discs.
HAHA nice one P4 .. Yup But you dont want that now do you!! Gonna have to spend more money on new ones when the discs get worn out!! Where is my STI friend.. You out there I cant find you :( Im lonely LOL .. Cant wait...
My God this game is going to be a killer...the first one was so much fun.
guess it wont be 1080p then unlike GT5!
was going to be 1080p although its now 720p?
GT5's Physics/AI won't even touch Forza 2s.
You're kidding, right? Are you missing any detail in the 720p video? 720p with FSAA like this is superb. 1080p would lower the framerate or AA, so 720p is the best choice.
Would rather see video of actual gameplay then of the replay. Replays always look nice. I want to see what it really looks like when you are deep in a race. The different views you have while racing. Like some of the Dirt videos.
Also, the replay is only 30 fps (to match television replays).
Sweet, my news tip got posted. Second.....I own an STi, but I don't think I'm that dudes friend. Lastly, gt5 hahahahaha, have fun waiting for that. I like all the screen shots I've sen of the game. What, you're telling me that there aren't any? There is no confirmation that there will be more than one car on the track? Yup that game looks good and all the details I know about it really have me excited also.
Replays always look the same as the actual gameplay because replays are ingame. Just like in PGR3, the replays were ingame so your skepticism isnt really justified.
The fourth screenshot is actual gameplay (hood cam), as are some parts of the trailer.
Replays can have hood cams, too, so that's not the best example. You might want to refer to the various public events Forza2 has been domoed at instead. There are tons of media outlets that have gotten to actually play the game in its current state, lots of photos and caps from those events, and the word of person after person saying yes it really does look like that.
...and as said, they're making massive graphical improvements all the time now, so the title has already jumped above what it looked like at those demos.
I'm going to wait on GT5. This looks good but it doesn't look fantastic. (Personal Opinon) If GT5 doesn't look fantastic I won't get that either. I think it would have looked better to me if they had selected a different track. There was nothing even close to the cars most of the race. The foot hills were very far way and I couldn't compare the cars to anything elese in the foreground. The cars look nice but they look better in the stills. I'll be waiting. (PO)
