How can Microsoft go wrong when you have over 400 cars to play with! Hope they make a PC version.

EMGN2535d ago

A pc version would make things even better. 400 cars is amazing!

pumal2535d ago

400 cars? wow, I thought this had less than a 100. Gonna be a mint game.

PLAYINB3YOND2535d ago

GT PSP has 800 cars. So what the Forza team have done is made a game on a DVD with half as many cars as a racing game on UMD.

Madusha2535d ago

GT5 is gonna be like 2X better than this game but forza still gives you a lot more than your money worth.

CWMR2535d ago

-What the PS3 faithful fail to tell you is that many of those cars in GT are very similar iterations of each other. The actual diversity of distinct vehicles makes the two games quite comparable. Not to mention if you just want iterations of the same cars, Forza 3 has a deep customization aspect that allows you to change a lot about the way your car looks and performs. In any case, using a detached metric like number of cars to somehow decide how good a racing sim is is silly. You have to look at the whole picture.-

DelbertGrady2535d ago

It's not that it's 400 cars that amazes me. It's that it's 400 cars that can be deeply customized. No other racing game can compete with that imo.

LiL T2535d ago

Kinda off topic: Is anybody else excited to see Schumacher back behind the wheel this weekend at the european grand prix?

He has some good competition this time arround. Oh yeah the ALMS race this morning was great.

p.s. I think thats what the auto enthusiast should be talking about instead of arguing about two good games on two diffrent systems. just my opinion.

Gt5 is gonna be wasted by Forza, or is it?

The_Beast2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

G27+GT5= Best racing/driving simulation on a video game console.

@suunyd, you don't need logic for this, its common sense.

Sunny_D2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

Let's just say they're both going to be great for their respective platforms... Wait, wth? I'm in the open zone, there's no point for logic in here, lol

talking about low standards

GT5 got 1000+

and you got only 400 and act like its the biggest number in the world

lol

Halo3 MLG Pro2535d ago

Gt adds an insane amount of duplicates and anniversary editions and special packages but ultimately it's the same car.

N4G king2535d ago

1- where is your proof
or just pulling sh*t out of your @ss

2- ive played alot of GT games
not that many cars are duplicated very few of them
but not as much as you claim

3- all and all
GT5 > forza

and you sir feeling a little butt hurt
;)

Greywulf2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

because it definitely has more than 5 years of a honda civic. And the same EXACT Porsche models with different liveries..but not only that, they are lower polygon, and only 7 can race you at once, With GRID's definitive rewind feature. Do you really want me to cut & paste the multi year every vehicle? Do you really think Turn10 wouldnt' want more cars than a PSP game for their "Definitive" racer? I just love the logic here. The second any story on N4G says "FORZA3: More cars than GT?" You'd trip over yourself rushing in to go to the open zone to type "LOL ITS OVER!".

GT has multiple year cars, in amazing fidelity. Is it easier to render 15 honda civics with the same amount of polygons on a screen or something? Because its the same model.. is it some how no longer needing to be rendered? Is there some sort of cheating of the customer? What exactly is the response from you guys about multiple year vehicles, even though again, forza2/1 all have multi-year same model vehicles. As any sim should. So you can play your exact year/model in the game. Much like all things, you can choose to drive every year civic, or whatever else you want. Including the model T, f1 vehicles, rally vehicles, and god knows what other vehicles.

I know you guys want to pretend that having too many cars is a bad thing, but it isnt. Its why GT is a 50 million franchise.

The trim levels are different, as are the specifications for the vehicle. You'd know this.. but unfortunately the only people that were interested in Forza2, were interested in the 360 bundle it came with, and are more than likely not car vehicle enthusiasts.. else you'd at bare minimum respect the reason why you have multiple year cars, with multiple different bodies, for people that love that specific car.

Turn10 is giving it a good shot, the photomode looks great. But so did the bullshots of F2 before the game surfaced with *gasp* no 12xAA/Depth of Field/Object blur etc.

GT has more cars. Its kind of the end of the discussion when you look at:

Yeah.. look at that.. thats all forza has right? Because we can only judge a sim on the number of duplicates it has. I think its safe to say that both games try to appeal to a wide audience of racers. But just that other games aren't restricted by DVD/Rushing to not add more vehicles racing at a native 1280x1080p @60fps resolution at once without adding anything other than Arcade features to make it easier to play.

Did I really just see a "WINGSWEST" civic, yet an anniversary version of a vehicle is just padding a list right?

N4G king2535d ago

@ Greywulf

100% agree
thank you for telling the truth

DelbertGrady2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

Forza = 400 different cars with deep customization.

GT = 1000 skins of 100 different cars (20 Civics, 30 Skylines etc) and no customization worth mentioning.

N4G king2535d ago

Greywulf JUST OWNED THEM ALL
lol

iChaos Amongus2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

I'm no Rocket Scientist, but if I had to....I would bet there are double accounts being used above me.

N4Gking/Greywulf, way too obvious. I've see you do it before also. In Forza 3 articles. You seem bothered.

Greywulf2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

please dude. Just stop. GT has deep customization as well, just as GTR, Rfactor, and well any driving game. Forza isn't re-inventing any wheel when it comes to #3 that 2 didn't do, and it sure as hell isn't unique to let you change a camber.

I just posted years of the SAME EXACT VEHICLE with different paintschemes, yet you want to pretend that you can just say "deep customization"(of professionally tuned vehicles lol) and it will hold up to anything? Please. Is this the new excuse by the way? Because I haven't seen it online yet. Don't try to bash a game by saying it has multi-year vehicles.. when the same game in question has.. multi-year vehicles..

Half of you don't even know how to tune a vehicle, which is why Turn10 decided to add, much like GT, an arcade mode for beginners. With dumbed down physics, braking assists, and traction assists. Then upped the anti by adding a "just steer" mode, combined with a movie player and rewind. Your exaggerations are so sad. GT's vehicles are higher detail, and theres more of them.

Forza would be a bigger franchise if people really cared about painting a swastika on the side of a Dodge neon. Painting is a great feature, but you don't see anyone on rennlist painting Vida Gurrera on their brand new Turbo. You get custom paint jobs that have significance, as in vehicles with great history that had the color.

400 is less than 401. Its just as simple as that, no excuses needed. Because they sure as hell don't make any sense. Racing isn't all about painting and tweaking. Its about driving your damn vehicle faster than the next person. Thats why people can love civics, and have huge communities. They aren't all drooling over a ferrari. its great, its capable, but you still love YOUR car.

potenquatro2535d ago (Edited 2535d ago )

Somebody saw right through you. Your exposed. Go jerk off on a GT5 thread.

EDIT: It's ANTE(as in wager) not ANTI(as in opposite or against).

Perkel2535d ago

@ n4g loser , greywolf

everybody knows that , you just don't need to post on every thread with forza in tittle... you are looking just sad

JasonPC360PS3Wii2535d ago

GT5 is just 100 cars with new skins because GT5 doesn't offer customization. Forza 3 is 400 cars with customization = unlimited amount of cars.

@Greywulf enough with the dup accounts it's just as sad as Nasim, unless you are Nasim.

Leathersoup2534d ago

What good is having over 1000 cars if 900 of them are different models of the Honda Civic.

DelbertGrady2534d ago

"N4Gking/Greywulf, way too obvious. I've see you do it before also. In Forza 3 articles. You seem bothered."

Was just about to ask where Obama is at. ;)

JokesOnYou2534d ago (Edited 2534d ago )

I just took a look back at some of the Forza3 threads posted over the last week or so, its funny to see Greywulf follow a game that he himself believes is inferior to GT so much; or does he really?:

"The graphics suck. It runs in a lower res, and it has 8 cars on the road."
http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...

"I'm willing to bet Forza3's in-game will have the same degrade Forza's have all had in the past."
http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...

"And its photoshopped to top it all off. Nice blurred pixels near the tire ground trying to really force the tireflex."
http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...

"Forza doesn't render any lines of 1080p natively.
Just upscaled 720p. has 8 cars max on the road as well as no weather tracks/light cycles."
http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...

"Forza3 has 8 cars on the road. Intense."
"Much like all 360 "victories", this Forza3 excitement is due to the lack of Sony even being present."
http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...

-lmao, and theres plenty more of Grey's deep thoughts about Forza3, and thats not even counting his duplicate accounts. lol, the guy has more "passion" for Forza3 than the fans. Question is; Why so scared Greywulf?

-You know Forza3 is doing something right when folks flock to the open zone to bash it. Envy can be a vicious human emotion.

JOY

Greywulf2534d ago

Damn near all my comments are responding to moronic claims about how GT doesn't let you tweak shift points or other nonsense. Then when morons are called out, they try to hide behind paint jobs. So I guess that means f2 will be better than any game.. ever.. so f3 is betterist?

Admins ban for using multi active accounts, Which is why I haven't been banned. Because I don't use multiple accounts to back myself up.

So Forza2 had infinity cars, as does Forza3.. is that the official statement guys?
