Gamikaze.pl has updated its Forza Motorsport 4 gallery with a batch of screenshots depicting some of the cars that will be available when pre-ordering the game.
Shame this game will have virtually no wheel support otherwise id be interested.
Who said so? Forza 3 has support for Fanatec wheels which are unarguably the best wheels on the market. No reason to believe Forza 4 wont support it as well.
2 credible wheels, Fanatec 911 turboS which is no longer in production so good luck finding 1 of those an the superb 911 GT2 which costs about £250 before u even buy pedals an a shifter (another £150 for those). Not good enough for me as simply adding Logitech support (G25/G27) would be brilliant for the franchise.
one fanatac wheel the most popular wheels are logitech g25 and g27 both of which dont work. The best racing wheel right now is the Thrust master 500 which again does not work on the 360.
Fanatec wheels are the extreme minority though because it is a very small company and they were limited in supply. Less than 5% (way less) of Forza fans own a fanatec wheel. How do I come to that conclusion? Because there were probably only 40 to 60k MS compatible wheels sold by Fanatec over the past few years and they have had some production issues the past several months. I am still waiting on my shifter I purchased with my GT2 when it was released.
Logitech wont pay the license fee to Microsoft so F4 wont support the G27 or any wheel from Logitech.
I'm pissed as fuck you can't use the G27 on the XBox 360. That's a great racing wheel. Oh and the cheap Mad Catz wheel works on Forza 3 as well I think but don't quote me on that.
Xbox 360 has a racing wheel that you could use for it! The good thing is, this game should benefit from the updated disc.
I'm almost positive MS stopped production on their wheel. I have a couple Fanatec wheels (2 x 911's & a GT2). I sold my old MS wheel on eBay last year and received triple what I paid for it because the wheel is no longer in production. The Fanatec wheel works excellent with Forza but the game is designed for 270 degrees of rotation and it does have, at least F2 & F3 did, active over steer. Hopefully Turn 10 corrects this issue for F4 but since MS no longer has an official wheel I think most of their focus will go towards a standard controller and Kinect implementation.
In other words because the game supports kinect you are Making up lies.
All I see is alot of Reflection and some pre-rendered graphics, when I see In-Game footage then I'll believe this game has good graphics.
i like forzas customizations decals,painting etc. features over gran turismos.
Forza is this generations racer of choice, it's obvious. Especially in the United States where Forza outsold GT. I expect Forza 4 with Kinect support to sell even better then Forza 3 did. I know I am looking forward to the head tracking and things like that. There are a lot of starved Kinect owners out there. Forza 4 is the food for that hunger!
so i guess , as usual , the united stated is the only country that counts? GT5 has been out 6 months and sold over 6.2 million, yet Forza 3 has been out how long, yet its at around 4+ million. yeaaa good one buddy . ohhh yea also the 360 has how many more million consoles sold?
There was a recent N4G article posting how the region breakdown worked out. Forza 3 had over a million more sales in the states. As an American I am proud that America is the largest consumer of video games and consoles, so while America doesn't equal the world, it does take a lot of regions combined to equal the output of the states. Also Forza and GT are clearly headed in different directions both in sales and Metacritic scores. Do a little research and it clearly supports that fact.
@karl How is Forza "casual"? But if you think Gran Turismo is truly a hardcore sim then have a try at iRacing and then say the same thing.
they ads to say they are the best and ads to talk down competitors. think ur the best = fanboy or delusional. people will argue until fight broke out. in the end only matter if you are happy with what you pay for. sometime more sales = more brain wash. example: I think Android phone better than Iphone because flash and I hate to use Itune. iphone is most popular. only people(minority) know about tech would understand.
The lighting looks way better than Forza 3's lighting but the cars still have this flippin plastic look to them. Is Turn 10's engine messed up or what? can't they get rid of that look? They need to fix that seriously because it stands out a lot.
Spoiler Alert: Most car bodies are made of plastic.
bubbles for shutting that guy up.
Oh, Forza actually looks pretty decent this time (if it really is ingame graphics). Still not as good as GT5 though
A decent lighting engine, there was never anything wrong with the car models it was the lighting that made them look plastic. I have high hopes for this game because I've completed GT5 and its running out of steam but hopefully they will announce some DLC and I can enjoy both mith my new GT2 WHEN IT ARRIVES FANATEC
Ok all the little crying fangirls of n4g. It boils down to this, GT5 is the staple racing series on Playstation and Forza is the staple racing series on xbox. People are going to buy the one they prefer no matter how much you say one is better than the other. Grow up and just be a gamer and enjoy games no matter what console they are on. if you have a preference thats great everyone does. i prefer my playstation but i wont turn my nose up and bash a great game on xbox. Why? because i want to enjoy great games no matter what console they are on.
Give this man a bubble!
here's hoping those godless bastards at Microsoft, apparently in name only a publisher, will remember they are supposed to maximize the potential of their franchises and make Forza the Fifth a PC game. (since this one at least looks visually impresive despite the hardware platform).
The take aways from this.... Forza 4 will look great and offer a lot. As far as N4G goes... any Forza 4 news will be filled with Sony Fanboys defending the honor of their 5yr in the making GT5 and Xbox Fanboys telling them differently. Its the same arguments we saw when all the GT5 articles came about just reversed. Can't people just be excited there is another good racing sim game coming out?
I WANT ME FORZA! That Subaru looks frickin AWESOME! Man, I hope this game supports the Fanatec GT2 wheel...
forza 4 will be better than gt5 because turn 10 would have had a chance to play gt5 check out its strengths and weaknesses and built on it. i know the guys that made gt5 played forza 3 while working on gt5 one of the guys at the studio mentioned it in an interview I remember reading it somewhere
