Forza Motorsport 4′s cars twice as detailed as Gran Turismo 5

DGP: "Speaking of which, it has also been revealed that Forza 4′s cars will boast a polygon count of over 1 million compared to 400,000 in Forza 3, resulting in a staggering level of detail that, dare I say it, could surpass Gran Turismo 5 which had half the number of polygons for its Premium models at 500,000."

Stop talking and make it happen, T10.

LOGICWINS2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

"Stop talking and make it happen, T10." the article, then comment. Turn 10 didn't say this, the journalist writing this article said this.

EDIT: Why I'm I getting disagrees for stating a fact? LOL, you just have to laugh at the mentality of some people here.

qface642723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

GT5 isn't what the hype tried to make it sound like

i see no reason why this game wouldn't be better
but then again when it comes to these racing sims the differences are always very small and not worth turning your head for

Active Reload2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

I can't believe GT5 took that long to make while Turn10 makes it look easy.

Edit: Calm down ladies and gents. When is GT6 coming out? I call it like I see mad? Relax, let the vein throbbing in your neck and head take a breather, lol.

DigitalAnalog2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

And yet it took turn 10 THIS LONG to release Forza 4 with this quality! In retrospect, that's way longer than GT5's development, considering Forza 2 & 3 were the base design. What's say you now that's GT5 is already the base design for GT6?

-End statement

Kyur4ThePain2723d ago

Then think about it, Active.

MariaHelFutura2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

LOL. This is N4G, I stopped reading 90% of the articles months ago. Plus, It`s not unrealistic T10 would talk some sh!t, they have every other time they`ve made a game. I`m just sayin.....

"do what thou wilt"

That is all. I could careless about if you view it as right or wrong.

LOGICWINS2723d ago

^^Yes, I'm aware this is N4G...but by reducing yourself to the level of some of the people here, you do nothing but promote more ignorance and immaturity on this site.

ChronoJoe2723d ago

GT5 dropped the ball somewhat but Forza 3s handling model barely constitutes 'simulation' so I know where my personal preferences lie.

Dee_912723d ago

im looking forward to forza but 1mill poly is complete bullcrap

there are 3d models i saw on youtube that only use 500k to 800k and they have way more detail than forza cars
you could see when they were showing the front of the cars with the doors openin

Boody-Bandit2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

Lame article looking for hits aside, I was disappointed that they didn't show any actual gameplay footage. I wanted to see the different camera angles, new cars, racing on the new locations.

Why didn't they show someone playing the game with any new tweaks to the gameplay engine besides the lame Kinect implementation for viewing your cars? Hopefully it will be covered so I can see it on the net. I don't have G4TV any more since Direct TV dropped them.

kneon2723d ago


You'll have to wait and see what they deliver because polygon count doesn't tell the whole story. It's easy to increase polygon count without increasing detail. For example just take every existing triangle and subdivide it into 4 smaller triangles. Voila, quadrupled the polygon count with little improvement to show for it.

Pretty sure Gran Turismo 6 can be twice as detailed as Forza Motorsport 4...

maniacmayhem2723d ago

And then forza 5 will be twice as detailed as gta 6, then gta 7 will be twice as detailed as forza 5, etc etc etc

Tr10wn2723d ago

Meh i don't want to wait another 6 years for that to happen and it probably be like 300 premium cars and 1700 PS2 cars.... no thanks

poindat2723d ago

Exactly, it's an inevitable cycle that will continue forever as long as the two games coexist. I don't see what everyone is getting so worked up about. I mean, a newer game will inevitably have more detail than an older one. There is no winner between the GT and Forza series, each will continue to outdo the other as the cycle continues and gamers win as a result. It's laughable to see people arguing over this.

sikbeta2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

"then forza 5 will be twice as detailed as gta 6"

But dude, GTAV wasn't even revealed yet and you're talking about GTAVI!? too soon, don't you think... XD

Either way, even if it was true, I don't think the people buying Forza 4 will waste their time trying to see if each individual car has more detail than GT5.

Forza 4 looks like a great game in its own right, so theres no need to compare it to GT5.

Besides, we all know both games do things better than the other.

Forza 4 is unmatched in car customization
GT5 succeeds as a racing simulator


Why someone has to thrown in the common sense and cut me all the fun? Where am I suppose to see fight over games that don't compete now?

C L O U D2723d ago

I don't know if I should take this serious...

ElDorado2723d ago

Don't. The level of details on the premium cars of GT5 are unmatched by any racegame on consoles. I am pretty sure the Xbox 360 can't handle that, let alone twice as much details. Forza is a great game! Hope it's gonna be just as good or even better than it's predecessor.


Actually it's possible.

If you look at Forza 3 files, you'll notice that most cars have 2 or 3 different models to be used in different parts of the game.

So if they keep it as on Forza 3, we don't know if they are talking about twice as detailed from GT5 in showroom or in racing... We have to wait and see (if that's even reliable info, I didn't see Turn10 saying it anywhere).

Umb2723d ago

It is possible but it will be two cars racing at any one time with next to no background graphics.

Nes_Daze2723d ago

More talking from Turn 10, Surprising..

Rattlehead202723d ago

Read the article..It was the journalist who stated that..NOT Turn 10.

ambientFLIER2718d ago

More retarded comments by people that don't read the article. Not surprising...

Nes_Daze2717d ago

Turn 10 said the poly count would be 1000, I want to see it to believe it, that's what I meant, stop assuming like a fool and using that old "read teh article" shit.

gapecanpie2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

It really matters?

Just install it?

B*t*hin about small stuff?

thereapersson2723d ago

Disc swapping should not exist on consoles

Cock4Gamers2723d ago

In 2011, you shouldn't have to worry about having personal information stolen when you want to play online(<see, douchbaggery can go both ways)

MinusTheBear2723d ago

Nothing is unhackable dumbass.

XabiDaChosenOne2723d ago

@Cock4gamers Actually, the way we are so internet reliant nowadays. Yes, you have to be concerned with whether your information can get stolen or not if its on the web.
