YourEMGN: Forza Motorsport 3 | Preview

Forza Motorsport 3 will include over 400 fully customizable cars from 50 manufacturers and over 100 tracks. New additions to the game include an in-car driving view, a perfect line to follow, one button assisted driving, vehicle rollover, and for the first time in the series, trucks and SUVs. Also included will be the ability to create in-game videos and upload them to the Forza Motorsport website. Forza Motorsport 3 will be shipped in two discs, but can be played completely off the first. The second disc serves as the "installation disc", which will contain some additional cars and tracks. (Forza Motorsport 2, Forza Motorsport 3, Xbox 360)

400 Cars!
How can Microsoft go wrong when you have over 400 cars to play with! Hope they make a PC version.
EMGN  +   1870d ago
A pc version would make things even better. 400 cars is amazing!
pumal  +   1870d ago
400 cars? wow, I thought this had less than a 100. Gonna be a mint game.
PLAYINB3YOND  +   1870d 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.
Madusha  +   1870d ago
GT5 is gonna be like 2X better than this game but forza still gives you a lot more than your money worth.
CWMR  +   1870d 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.-
DelbertGrady  +   1870d 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.

Game will be good.
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?

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

If Turn10 could fit more on a dvd, there would be more cars. Lets take a trip down forzas car list..
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:

2006 Porsche #81 Synergy Racing 911 GT3 Cup
2006 Porsche #82 Red Bull 911 GT3 Cup

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?

Forza = 400 different cars with deep customization.

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

Greywulf  +   1870d ago
Soda, "deep customization" = Painting a car, and throwing on a non-functional wing.. from WingsWest?
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.

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.

Wow, Greywulf sure does love Forza3, its like he's obsessed with the game...
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.

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?

Forza 2 was already rated extremely high and this one looks like a huge leap in almost every department so I expect perfect scores.

Instead of calling names use firefox with Adblock Plus and popup blocker (Ads and popups are the main culprits of spyware and viruses). I have firefox with both adons and I havent got a virus or spyware from a website with 2 years now. The only viruses I saw in two years was from downloaded torrents but my antivirus stopped it.
kaveti6616  +   1869d ago
The pop-up looked like an Adobe 10 free download and it said in order to view the page I had to download it, it didn't seem like a virus.
I do use firefox. Anyways, I know this wasn't intentional, but I literally spent the entire night trying to fix the situation. The virus was intelligently designed because it wouldn't let me get onto the internet for more than a few seconds before it told me that there was spyware on my computer (the virus was telling me there was a virus). I downloaded AVG but it didn't work. So I had to do a destructive reboot.

the funny thing is
bots say that they dont need 1000+ cars

same thing happened about netflix
they didn't buy the xbox for movies
but for games

but look what happened when they got the netflis
it became the best thing in the world

and the other funny thing is
they think if GT5 got more cars
that well make the game paly suck because it well take disc space
yet they forget about BLURAY having 50 gigs in it

BLURAY = like 6 DVD9

That must explain Forza being the higher rated series every since becoming a franchise. Just like Forza 3 is going to be higher rated than Gran Turismo 5, just like Forza 2 was higher rated than GT5: Prologue(much higher rated) and just like Forza was higher rated than Gran Turismo 4.

It will continue, Gran Turismo is outdated and out of touch, just like the Sony Playstation...relying on old tricks that no one falls for anymore...because everyone sees the competition for what it is: superior in features and performance.

Be there in October, I know I will.

Forza with 400 cars + Rare and New Cars in the Auction House.
