Looks really good Flex. I'm yet to even browse through the community designs yet because there's been so much to do.I even modded out an Eclipse and it looks identical to Paul Walkers from F&F ;P

Amazing game!

Ka7be1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

Btw those photomode screens don't even come close to the real gameplay. lol

No wonder they accomplished 60fps the game lacks Antialiasing. It has blurry low textures and low polycount for a next gen game.

Here is GT5 also in photomode on the PS3

I'm not even posting Project cars or DriveClub's photomode which are on current gen and both wipes the floor with FM6 photomode.

gangsta_red1181d ago

Your top links aren't working, and the photomode from your supposed PS3 shots are obvious bullshots.

If you were out to make yourself look like a lame then mission accomplished.

I would also be careful posting shots from other games, time to stop trying to troll these articles and start enjoying don't you think?

Ka7be1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

@gangsta_red

No they are not Bullshots. They are photomode captured by users and posted on GameTrailers forum.
The first GT5 link
was posted here: Photomode 100% taken by the user CoolColJ
http://www.indigorenderer.c...

GT5'photomode (last gen console game) and still looks miles better than the "next gen" FM6 "photomode"

As for the not working link here are different link that work 100%

This is real FM6 gameplay nothing close to what FlexLuger is posting ;)

You forza fanboys disagree all you want. those are the facts.

Rookie_Monster1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

KA7BE,

DUDE...YOU HAVE NO IDEA what you are talking about. LoL. I can post bullshots all day long but the true test is seeing them running side to side and even on the same course and you can see not only Forza 5 completely smoke the last last GT in GT6 in graphics but in sound as always as well. And Forza 6 improves upon FM5 in every aspect and GT6 also improved over GT5 as well so for you to claim GT5 looks better is just laughable, LoL. Even better, Forza 4 on X360 did the same to GT6 as well.

Don't take it from me see it for yourself. :D

You wasted all 6 of your bubbles to post false info to try to downplay Forza and ultimately got nothing to show for it. Smh

So 7/13 million Xbox users have Forza that's cool!

Eldyraen1182d ago (Edited 1182d ago )

Counting other Forza titles (so franchise sells up to release of 6 on the Xbox One).

That still ends up with F6 likely managing 3-4m sold eventually at least (if say you split the two Forzas evenly and every fan picks up every Forza title). It may sell more actually as install base is larger but 4-5m seems possible given enough time easily enough.

It is one of the bigger Xbox franchises, is one of the most loved racing IPs on any console (diehard fans--sort of like GT on PS), and has reviewed extremely well (like always). It has a lot going for it as it even has less driving game competition this time around.

It looks solid but a Gears friend will now be on a long hiatus due to Forza so it's always bitter sweet.

Monster_Tard1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

They are putting the sales figures of Forza Motorsport 5 and Forza Horizon 2 together and are counting every game sold as a single user and not considering that some of these sales were made by people who purchased both games. So I doubt 7 million Xbox One owners purchased one of these games, new at least.

FITgamer1181d ago

7 million players ≠ 7 million copies of the game were sold. Many people have multiple accounts and/or multiple people playing on a single box.

Magicite1181d ago

Exactly! It has sold 5m at best.

Wow, that is a lot of drivatars to play against and add challenges and unpredictability to gameplay. NO wonder MS continues to keep pumping high quality Forza titles as the fans are apparently eating it up.

Automatic791182d ago

@Rookie going to get my copy after work Today.

generalthadeape1182d ago

Me too!

Goodbye Batman, hello Forza 6.

creeping judas1181d ago

I noticed you can turn of the aggressiveness of the drivatars. Making the less likely to block you when attempting to pass, or more likely to dive for the corner even if you are there. I haven't taken it off yet, as to a certain degree I like the punishment. Trying to pass two cars running abreast in the rain. Or the break checking some of the do. I have on occasion felt like sending some people nasty PM's about how they train their drivatars!!

christocolus1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

@Rookie

Quite impressive indeed and im sure Forza 6 will add to these numbers.

RpgSama1182d ago

Honest question, do Forza games sell that much? Always thought of 2/2.5 million units per game.

ThePope1182d ago

I would think so. I mean it cant be cheap to make them, and they make them every year so it must be lucrative.

InTheLab1181d ago

Generally around 2 to 4 million with 4 being the extreme. They usually bundle it with other tities and count that as well.

Regardless of how much they sell, MS knows the best way to show off your hardware is a racer and they've really came through with this one.

Spotie1182d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

If they're using the combined numbers of two different games, isn't that number disingenuous? I mean, isn't there likely to be a decent amount of overlap? Or at least SOME?

Edit: Had to do some digging, but I found that Microsoft spoke of UNIQUE players, so that's excluding people who bought both. That wasn't clear at first, so knowing that makes my original remark pointless.

@gangsta: Have not been impressed with the series in the past. Believe it or not- I suspect not- the game has always had a look about it that was slightly... cartoonish to me. Seems like it's in the colors, somehow.

@martin: Is there a Forza game every year? There is? Hmm...

gangsta_red1182d ago

Plan on joining in on the fun of Forza Spotie? It's a great game if you're into racers.

StrayaKNT1181d ago

It looks too cartoony to him apparently lmao he must also hate all those anime games announced at tgs don't you think gangsta?

Spotie if you like racers then you don't know what you're missing on my friend

user99502791182d ago (Edited 1182d ago )

and here I have been told that Forza is an annual release. Seems more disingenuous than anything.

7 million Forza players on X1 and counting. Pretty simple. but feel free to play the paranoid skeptic. I know numbers are incredibly important to you.

Got F6 preloaded, as soon as I get off work time to tear it up online. woot.

ctmaudi1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

They said 7 million unique players, meaning 7 million different gamertags have played and have a Drivatar in the system.

Doesn't mean 7 million sales though, as a family can buy one copy and have multiple accounts play it. Or used copies being sold, etc...

InTheLab1181d ago

What difference does it make?

christocolus1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

@Spotie

Why so bothered about Forza sales? as Gangsta stated above, do you plan to get an xbox one to play any of the Forza games anytime soon? The games are amazing and its good to know that they are all selling well.feel free to jump in anytime though.

FlexLuger1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

Well...I think I should use this moment to kill the 2D crowds thing:

@Ka7be

"F boy" wow...You should be a little bit more polite, Flex has been known to shut a lot of folks down. And his pics are on topic as they have everything to do with Forza.

Yours and your comment on the other hand...

gangsta_red1181d ago

@Spotie

Oh I believe completely that you are not impressed with the series. It's not a big surprise that you wouldn't be tell you the truth.

I am wondering why you're so curious about the number of players for Forza. But as you stated it was pointless.

freshslicepizza1181d ago

@Spotie,
"If they're using the combined numbers of two different games, isn't that number disingenuous? I mean, isn't there likely to be a decent amount of overlap? Or at least SOME?"

at the end of the day does it matter if you have no intentions of being one?
