Forza Motorsport will support Microsoft's Kinect, it's just announced.
is it a new game or a system update?
I think it's just an update, but it was not a good demo. I mean, you could do all that with much more precision and ease using a controller. Kinetic = fail.
That demo wasn't live, you could really tell, someone should create another load of Gifs lol. Also, driving using your hands as though they are holding a pretend steering wheel CANT be accurate enough to play seriously, if you play it like that you might aswell be holding something...like a controller (instead of pretending to hold 1)
I thought the part where they showed off how you can look at the car using kinect was especially lame. getting stats about tail lights doesn't interest me for some reason...
Funny enough, the specs DO interest me... but moving about with a camera pretending to look at a car is pretty stupid. Also, acceleration, how does it work?
Shoot I haven't even thought about acceleration. I have no idea
you control a car and you get points for successfully passing other cars, it wasnt racing, then theres a section where you can inspect cars,very very mundane looking title microsoft had two shows and honestly both were absolutely garbage,i cannot describe how rubbish microsofts presentation was WHERE WERE THE FREAKING GAMES?biggest cheer of the show was when he announced the audience would receive a free 360 at the end. even nintendo can do better than this
indeed, it was like a mini game... with speed you can't change ..just steer
I'm also a bit dissapointed by the lack of new games.. Tought new title from Crytek made me really hyped. And for **** sake, where's RARE? Or do they have something to show outside of MS conference?
i forgot YOU ONLY STEER THE CAR, its a constant speed its not racing,seriously i cannot fathom how greenburg hyped up this e3 presentation earlier today
It said on the trailer it was coming out 2011 if memory serves correct, so I would imagine its Forza 4, or whatever they're calling the next game
If Forza3 was the definitive racer of this gen... ... then what will Forza4 be when it comes out fall of 2011.
this was the only non casual game which supports kinect and the forza showing was not great at all this is MS worse E3 reflecting on it only postive was smaller 360
And even the redesign wasn't that good. At 300 bucks it will not help much.
kinect camera is nearly same size of new xbox lmfao
Well, the good news is that we now know games can get updates to use Kinect.
has NOTHING to do with forza thats currently out, its a simulator where you cannot change speed,just steer the car past other cars,to kindly put it..mundane edit-to the childish disagrees truth hurts? what i have stated is fact i watched the whole freaking boring show hoping it would get better because greenburg said there will be some big announcements...yeh right
lack of good games will kill kinict. this and star wars and thats it?
I know a ton of chicks that would love this thing. If MS can get them on board this this will sell like hot cakes and they'll kick their fans to the curb like Nintendo. @Fooltheman: Exactly. That's what chicks do.
yeah girls.... falling for the flash?
that star wars game kinda saddened me a little. The moving for the force powers was kinda cool but the on rails and saber using stuff was a total fail in my books.
Did you even watch the conference dude? You guys are getting sad and pathetic on here today. Over 15 games so far for Kinects launch.
Well, kids will love these games, specially the uber cute pet game. But for us more serious gamers, looks like it will only bring new way to use ours consoles, but I hope that will change..
It was a time trial with no breaking or acceleration control, lmao. HAHAHAHAHAHA, what utter crap.
Well, I saw the short gameplay, but the thing is I don't notice the lag in the gameplay, which is good, I was surprised, and the guy was driving very good.
and it was kinda boring looking..personally i like the Dance game...but the rest was a joke and exclusives are a playstation thing now..i mean one game we didn't hear about kingdoms and they havent made anything besides fps so who knows what that will be
There is not a 2nd Conference by MS? I've heard there are 2 Conferences or something.
After the show they were talking it to be 3rd person, but it could have 1st person stuff too..
You can see the potentisl with this but for god sakes MS...please make more real games for this and not Wii games
24hrs from now we'll be witnessing gt5 and saying, kinect what? forza who?
yeah wait for the Sony conference, ughh my gosh i was hoping more games from MS but they left me completely disappointed. we'll see new titles unveiled tomorrow, though I expect Nintendo to be another shovelware fest. Sony will have a BUNCH of games. and it gonna be about gaming tomorrow, and not stuff I can do at the gym.
Nintendo doesnt make shovelware. You must be new and trying to use words you dont know the meaning of. Of course you can try that but they have games rated higher than anything on PS3 so if thats shovelware to you just what exactly are those lower selling, lower rated PS3 games? Complete garbage? I'm just asking since you know you called it shovelware
if u notice they was no way to accellerate , all u did was steer and look around
no hate, but he couldnt break or accelerate just steer with an imaginary wheel fun!
looks fun right...only one game looked good and it was a dance game
I hope they add in some sort of speed control. If not I guess the game would control it? I'm hoping it was for the sake of the presentation, so they didn't need to wheel in a chair. That would have looked lame.
IT STILL WAS M$ THIS IS THE WORST PRESS CONFERENCE EVER
fine by me but gameplay was lacking if was real ofc. No gas no brakes... And we don't know it's a new forza natal game or just update..
I'm absolutely stoked that I can touch a Ferrari, open its door, look at its features on my TV. This is just very exciting. /sarcasm
lol the music and how they made it look epic was annoying too xD
But those guys must like wasting time and money. No gas pedal on a racing game, why did they even bother.
No pedals in a racing game is just down right retarded.
Instead of these shit ass gimmicks they need to fix their Permanent Driving Aid - Active Steering Even with all the optional driving aids disabled, Forza 3 still has an active steering aid that steers for you, and the driving physics are terrible, this game is not a simulator. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Edit: you stupid people why are you rating my comment down? look at the link i posted Forza 3 it not even playable with a steering wheel wtf are you butthurted or what?
All options can be turned off for Forza 3, so yeah. Secondly, your argument is weak since the wheel works beautifully with Forza 3, I have used it myself. And these guys seem to agree with me...
and go visit forza 3 forums instead of those nonprofessional idiots "InsideSimRacing" learn to read: "Even with all the optional driving aids disabled, Forza 3 still has an active steering aid that steers for you, and the driving physics are terrible.." Those guys from "InsideSimRacing" called Forza 3 a sim,lol "when a simulation steers for you is it still a simulation?" NO! InsideSimRacing don't know WTF they are talking about, thier job was to promote Forza 3 not to help people at buying this game. i also own Forza 3, they need to fix the shifting animation, and half of the cars don't have shifting animation the day it released. also the game has the dumbest AI ever seen in a racing game http://www.youtube.com/watc...
You have a dislike for Forza 3, since this is pretty much off-topic, and nobody will convince you otherwise. But trying to convince people that Forza 3 has bad physics? Good luck there. Is it perfect? Nope. Is it the best yet by a long shot? Yep. And InsideSimRacing's job was to promote Forza?! Good ol'bias, eh? Yeah, why not. From a small site dedicated to Sim Racing, almost exclusively on the PC. Riiiight. You hate Forza, we get it. Whenever GT5 decides to show up (im waiting too), maybe then you'll be happy . OFF TOPIC And its sad that this site has seemed to actually get WORSE after the update. Every forum just breaks down in to the same arguments, people just come in to bash instead of actually talk about something, etc. Oh well...N4G will just never be the place for much intelligent discussion I guess
Were they able to drive using Kinect? (Sorry had to take a leak) I saw the interior thing, but idk.. I didn't 'felt' it that much, if you CAN drive using Kinect, then that's another story :)
Where is the new stuff.? Forza is over a year old. This years E3 for MS is a EPIC FAIL.
First, Forza 3 is NOT a year old yet, so you're wrong there. Secondly, the game being shown at E3 was NOT Forza 3, but a WIP (that could possibly be using some Forza 3 elements for demo purposes) Wanna go for a third?
Its just a demo folks, no need to worry about so many specifics in what was a working title due for release in 2011. Which brings me to a funnier note...with Forza 4 (or whatever they call it in the end) looking to release next year, could it possibly release BEFORE GT5? I keed, I keed... Also, why is everyone ignoring the best part of this demo...HEADTRACKING! Obviously, you could just play this with a wheel or controller, and use Natal...er, Kinect, to headtrack....Im honestly really excited to see what else they can cook up for that
Steering only? No thanks.
