This DLC pack will be the start of a series of commercial download-content packs as Turn 10 plans on keeping Forza 3 fresh by releasing new cars and tracks on a monthly basis.
I wonder how much this will cost and if Turn 10 wants to get as many cars as GT5 will have Forza 3 + DLC will end up costing over $500! GT5 just shows how great value for money it is!
Lol, the DLC's are like 5 dollars and they've already released 3 car packs FOR FREE.
Why didn't Turn 10 add more cars? GT5 has over 1000 cars and Forza 3 only has like 450. Why can't they add more?
Why does gt 5 takes so long to finish. It kinda sucks. I mean 450 cars in 2 years Is almost the same as 1000 cars in 5 years. Actually Turn 10 even have a higher productivity. with 225 cars a year so in 5 year they would have 1125 cars.
@^ "Actually Turn 10 even have a higher productivity." it looks like you forgot that in the same time they were making - GT5:P - GT PSP - and the new engine from square 0 that’s 3 games with a big brand new engine while turn10 used the same engine and only one game i rather to wait an get the hole thing perfect in one disk than getting my game full of glitches and half assed graphics yah add to that the broken drag race ( which 360 fanboys hyped the sh1t out of it ) and a broken online i don't want to put my game together lol and thats what forza3 users is doing now turn 10 rushed out this game because they are afraid of GT and thats a FACT
Well for one, Gran Turismo 5 is going to have a track editor, of all things. I would really like to see Turn 10 do something like that. I think it's mostly because they were limited on disc space, so they're providing all this stuff as extra DLC.
I wouldn't be so sure about that. And I'm not saying the game won't have the feature, but the last time I checked it was an unknown blog site that confirmed the feature. I'm sorry but I don't really believe in unknown blog sites for breaking gaming news like that...
Dragonelite just pwned all you fanboys with that comment. Wow! Keep playing screenshots sony fanboys while I'm playing Forza 3. :)
Isn't that kinda a parallel scenario with the gaming hardware products too? There's a pattern with MS always. It's amazing how people who support them never seem to see it.
You know, you complain about fanboys, but you really bring all the hate you receive on yourself when you make comments like that...
@ 1.3 I'm not trying to start anything, but the first thing that came to mind after reading your comment was: more quantity at the expense of quality. Anyway, it'd be better for Turn10 to shift their focus on fixing the issues gamers are having with Forza 3 rather than rushing out DLC.
I am sorry, but when did you say you would be playing GT5? Ohhh, and can you post me the link for the exact pricing for all Forza 3 DLC.
"Well for one, Gran Turismo 5 is going to have a track editor, of all things. I would really like to see Turn 10 do something like that." So Forza offers vehicle customization and then GT announces a track editor so now it's a step above lol?
Excuses for charging for stuff that comes free with other games ... like 500 cars. I love the excuse given by Turn10 themselves for charging people for DLC. "It takes a lot of money to model each car." lol The 400 cars, various tracks, all the game code, marketing, testing and other productions cost, the cost of printing 2 DVDs, and the DVD packaging can be covered by $60! Yet they have to charge $60 to cover the cost of modeling 140 cars in the DLC? Awesome! Glad I dodged that bullet!
@ dragonelite yeah yeah then why in 3 games they didn't even reach gt2 car count ? (600+) btw forza is quite unfinished , lots of bugs, glitches, missing rims, weird multiplayer without low class cars (in prv there are) photomode with crappy compression ,Or this 100 tracks where actually is 20 tracks and almost 100 layouts and for highspeed benchamrk is alone 10 layouts , car models swaped before 3,2,1, start, no interior of cars from outside camera, no moving tailwings for veyron , audi tt, no animation of driver changing gears, turtle body roll , you can't paint some parts of cars, i could go on and go on. Visit forza forum, forza isn't definitive as someone tried to lie. It's definetly a good sim like game but it's far from being definitive. Every part of this definitive game without painting cars was done better on other games even last gen games on ps2. car count , gt4 track count gt4 physic Enthusia (ps2) best physic in sim consoles to date, And lots of people set bar over gt5p for better physic. http://www.youtube.com/watc... graphic you know gt5p forza realy shines only in paint and multiplayer, everyother part isn't definitive as big G said. @ mlg eh i tought you are not a fanboy but you post changed my mind, you are a fanboy. With your post you just showed big sign I AM FANBOY !. and i just one more time sum it up. IS forza 3 a good racing/sim game ? , YES it's worth money. Buy it play it and be happy. Is forza definitive ? eh No
DLC Packs to keep it "fresh"? [email protected]#%% Turn10, trash of the century. I'm sad that the only way M$ is making a profit is by rushing out faulty units to be the competition early, charging for Live, getting people to pay insane money for peripherals, brainwashing people to buy half @ssed items, and last but not least, re-releasing something just with a little bit of polishing and calling it a new game or new things that should have already been in the game already.
lol turn 10 rushed out a half assed broken game
continue to do so as long as there are stupid bots willing to put up with Microsoft's unscrupulous practice.
There are a lot of hurt butts on N4G. Otherwise known as the PS3 fanboy playground.
If it's so great then why haven't any of you bought it? lol Oh how the tables have turned.
As long as MS see their fanbase supporting half baked products, they'll keep pumping them out. They know their base very well.
I sure hope they could give all the cars for free and just use the points system on the tracks as they take more time and effort.
From their blog: "There is currently a hefty amount of DLC in the works and this will continue for as far as the eye can see." $$$
I have no doubt Forza 3 will match Gran Turismo 5's car numbers, it's just going to cost the end user about x10 the cost of Gran Turismo to get there.
Was a forum regular on there.and was very dissapointed when I got it,LCE forza 2 too.. ,so I wont speak for me,but for my friends that did get Forza3.Fix the fcking game 1st Turn10,then release DLC.your forum is Littered with complaints and all you do is lock those threads.theres pages and pages and pages of glitches,bugs where you have to restart the game that have just been hidden from public view.
To me, it's overly clear by now that the 360fanbase really don't care about the shoddy products MS pumps out to them. All they want is for MS to "win". They'll support them with any shoddy product to meet this end. These same guys that supported Forza2&3 will come out during GT5's launch and slag it off on every forum even if the game is obviously of much higher quality than Forza3. Why? cause they don't give a damn about quality, they just want MS to "win". If any PS3 gamer actually listens to 360fans (or those pretending to be PS3 gaming fans) then you are a fool. After supporting games like ODST & Forza3 which were obviously relatively minor upgrades to already obviously underwhelming production values from the predecessors, no 360 fan should have the gull to talk any crap about any type of PS3 game. I'm sorry but supporting MS, IMO, has held gaming back long enough and I'm sick of it.
Yea you can say that, but I could also say that about ps3 fans.. I bought forza 3 and I complained to turn ten. I do care about how good the game turns out. just cause we like M$ for there FPS shooters that clearly pound on sony's, doesn't mean we won't get on there a-- for pushing out a game that is not on par with the gt series, which I do agree until they make changes to the game. YOU ARE CLEARLY A FANBOY YOUR SELF.. What about sony pushing blueray when it should have been downloads next, what a waste of money that is.. buy this but in 4-5 years it will be useless.... DOn't give me that crap either that you won't be able to share your downloads, all it would take is a thumb drive type of deal with the amount of gigs our harddrives have now.. then you could actually take all your games over to your friends, along with your movies and music... makes more since to have one storage medium then 3.
CHubaer funny you say that because I see it as though SOny has been the ones holding back the industry. If not for MS the PS2 would have been around 4 more years before the PS3 and online would never have happened in console gaming since the dreamcast. Community gaming, instant 1080p native, wireless controllers, netflix, downloads, better development tools, kz2, uc2, trophies, and many other services wouldn't exist if we had kept Sony's holding the industry standard because they were on top.
maybe *shrugs shoulders*.. This dlc had better be free or else a lot of forza lovers are gunna feel a little shafted. If the game is still bug ridden then maybe dlc should take a back seat UNLESS the dlc is ready to release now which could mean t10/Ms might wanna make more money OR dvd<9 just wasn't enough even with 2 disks. What im stating is just my opinion...If i'm wrong or misinformed please feel free to shut me down or explain (depending on how civil you are)
No matter how many cars are featured in a racing game, there will still be more cars released every single week after the game has gone gold. For example, 400 cars were announced to be in the game at E3 this year,during that time we have seen the launch or announcement of the Noble M600,Porshe Panemera, Audi TT RS, Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni,Aston Martin V12 vantage, Opel/Vauxhall Insignia VXR, Mercedes Benz E63 AMG, Honda Civic Mugen R, Renault Clio Cup 200, VW Golf R,VW Scirroco R andPorsche 911 sport classic.Those are just a few i could name from the top of me head. SO it does not matter if the game has 1000,400, or 1 million cars because there will always be cars released minutes after the game has gone gold so the only thing they can do is release it as DLC. And i hope you know that Turn 10 have already given out DLC packs for Forza 3 for FREE.
That doesn't explain the glaring lack of older cars though.
fom the 90's: Golf GTI, Mazda MX5, Honda CRX, BMW M3 E30, Nissan 300ZX, Ferrari 355, Jaguar XJ220, Ferrari F50, Mercedes benz CLK GTR, McLaren F1, Mazda RX7, Honda NSX and Intergra, toyota Supra. From the 80's: VW Rabbit, Porsche 959, Ferrari Testarossa, Ford RS200, Ferrari F40/GTO, lamboghini Countach, Porsche 911 turbo 3.3, Porsche 944, BMW 635 and M1, Audi Quattro, Lancia Delta Integrally. From the 70's: Pontaic Firebird, Ford Mustang 429, Chevrolet Chevelle, Chevrolet Camaro z28, Datsun 510, Porsche 914, Nissan Skyline, Lotus Elan The 60's: Lamborghini Miura, Chevrolet Corvette and Stingray, ALfa Romeo Giulia, Nissan Fairlady, Ferrari Dino/ 250 GTO/ 330 p4, Jaguar E-type, Aston Martin DB5. 50's: Ferrari 250, Mercedes benz 300 sl. Those are a few of the cars i can remember that are in Forza 3 and if i am not mistaken (which i a know i am not), the cars listed above are some of the most applauded performance cars of the past 50 years.Do you have a better selection Pirate Thom that you would like to see included? EDIT:I just realized that i mentioned from the top of my head, almost as many classic cars, as the entire car count for Need For Speed Shift.
Toyota Celica GT-Four RC from 1991 and Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo MR for start.
You name only two, so is that what you consider to be a " glaring lack of older cars".?
Ya he only named 2 cars, but why waste your time naming every car except 1 out of every 5. Oh and yes they released free dlc... cause they couldn't fit it all on the discs. if these future dlc packs cost money, i will not be one to buy. too much milk causes problems you know. O FYI i did buy the game, its not too shabby, but i do know GT5 will be better.
I am enjoying buying and playing an Xbox 360 & Forza 3 which is the best Sim on any console despite some small bugs which will be fixed in the next title update and "whenever" Gran Turismo 5 is going to release I am going to get it Day 1 because it looks like Polyphony are finally making a Sim that is good enough for me to get a useless PS3 for. PC is still Best you morons despite its Millions of issues.
Thank you for being an idiot and funding these asshats. But, thank you for knowing that PD is going to pwn Forza with GT5.
I feel like I've already bought the game. DLC like GTA is worth it. That is wholly new content. DLC like a 10 pack of cars is bullcrap. This is simply stuff the developers kept out of the original game so that they could slap "DLC" on it a few months later and make some extra bucks. DLC like THIS (not GTA DLC) is everything that is wrong with gaming nowadays.
forza 3 and gt 5 doesnt have to be in the same paragraph every time, funny thing is that when a article about forza 3 is released the sony fanboys are here like flies around sh!t. remember sony fanboys MS didnt charge a penny for there demo.
"I think it's mostly because they were limited on disc space, so they're providing all this stuff as extra DLC." Well they had space left on the second dvd I think. I Like the idea of of less car and give the option to people download it if they want to. @ wxer "that’s 3 games with a big brand new engine while turn10 used the same engine and only one game" Is it not a new engine? I think Turn 10 use a new engine. I think you are making excuse for GT5 developers. Is a fact that turn 10 make this great game call Forza 3 I am sure that GT5 will be good but it took them 5 years maybe will take 6 years.
