Forza Motorsport 3 will ship on two discs

Speaking to Joystiq on the show floor at E3, Turn 10's John Wendl confirmed "It is going to ship on two discs. Disc one is the full experience, even disc one is bigger than any other racing game out there. Disc two includes a lot of extra cars, even a handful of tracks."

The story is too old to be commented.

GT 2 says hi , it came on 2 disc's, did it ruin your experience ?
Besides, Gt psp doesnt have as much tracks as Forza 3, tracks contain way more textures and objects then a single car does.

And while i do like GT, theres one part that bores me, and that the 20 variations you get of every damn car.
You dont see that in Forza, cause in Forza you can make 20 variations yourself using the paintshop.

Well as you stated it is an extreme example.But how many arcade users do you actually know?Everyone i know owns a harddrive equipped 360 and as the article stated, disk 2 is very small and you can just download it to your harddrive and problem is solved.

What you should even be happy about is that they are cramming so much content into the game instead of releasing it as DLC you have to pay for.

Foxgod3421d ago

You just won the fanboy award for the 10th time in a row.

Ofcourse that wont happen you smartass, you ever heard of a software development process called quality control ?
It means that a product has to suffice to certain conditions before it can be released, constantly switching disc's obviously doesnt mean quality control.

And obviously its better then a 10 year old game, if you saw the trailer you know enough, that is, if your fanboyism isnt blinding you.

Hydrolex3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

As an athele I wish I had a 360 so I could do the changin exercise every 20 minutes ! Good way of burnin calories

Aooo Dayumn ! I didn't know Microsoft was also a personal trainer

PirateThom3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

I currently have a 20GB HDD with about 6GB left, it would have to be a very small install.

@Foxgod

You're the one who brought up Gran Turismo 2, no one else.

really duh3421d ago

LOL at this fanboy above attacking the game because its on two discs.

SL1M DADDY3421d ago

Are so last gen. I'm sure that Forza 3 will look and play great but to even compare it to any game in the GT series is just plain silly. GT has always been the better game for car enthusiasts while Forza is for the tuner and those who like to crash into people just to see their car spin out in a pile of rubble.

Two different experiences. Both a ton of fun.

Game13a13y3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

opps, never saw that coming.

/sarcasm

DelbertGrady3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

You need to excercise your brain.

Forza 3 will be the best racing game ever made.

If you guys want to whine about last-gen go look at your disc based Blu-Ray movies. I prefer on-demand 1080p streaming.

Traveler3421d ago

This is a non-issue, period. So quit talking about it.

really duh3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

You fanboys are so insecure. No matter what disc format the 360 has folks would install the games to the HDD anyways.
In a year or two people will be saying using a disc is so last gen. This is nothing more than retaliation from a bunch of kids because the 360 has a AAA high quality game thats impressing the industry. They see that article on the top of the front page and came in here for some revenge due to some strange anti social behavior that interrupts MS success as offensive gestures.

Just look at how we're being overran by PS3 fanboys this frustration was pent up for sure.

Forza 3 is grade A Sim.

EDIT ultimolu Go see how many PS3 only articles I visit I welcome anybody who reads this to do the same.

jmare3421d ago

The irony is awesome. So, Forza 4 won't be better than 3?

And as far as the instant 1080p streaming, I'll believe that when it happens. Not saying it can't, just that until it works for everyone, it sounds like PR bullshit.

ultimolu3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

Lol, @ duh talking about fanboys. Oh, the irony. I guess you're not a fanboy when you somehow find yourself spamming PS3 articles on a daily basis, only for the mods to delete your comments, right?

I'm sure Forza will be a great game but Microsoft needs to get with the times. Swapping disks is very, very last gen and it would be really unforunate if you installed the game onto the harddrive, only for something to happen to your console.

Just my two cents. *walks away*

EDIT: I had no problems swapping disks back when the PS2 was around. But this is the year 2009. Do you really want to be swapping disks in 2010 and beyond? And, I would rather have physical media than to install an entire game on my harddrive. But whatever, continue arguing. The proof is in the pudding.

Now I expect to hear the whole 'I DON'T HAVE A 360!!!11' wailing.

Lol.

Oh, and duh who are you fooling? Seriously, I've seen you on PS3 articles.

really duh3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

360 fans just ignore them. This is a stupid thing to be fighting a bunch of losers over.

Syronicus3421d ago

Let's keep it on topic. Forza 3 looks like it will be a good game. I wonder what exactly is going to be on this second disc and hope that it won't be tracks that will require me to swap out the disc between circuit races. Other than that, I see no big issue with this. My only other question is, with two discs, can we still do an install to the HDD of the 360?

green3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

what does it take out of you as a person to swap a disk?Oh and i am sure u missed this part of the article that states that disk 2 is small so you can just download it to your 360 HDD and the problem is solved.

EDIT: Because you don't so GTFO.

The proof is in the pudding Juuken.Show me where you have ever seen me troll a PS3 article?My comment history is there for you to check so feel free to do so.

FamilyGuy3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

EVERYBODY, and i do mean everybody, in this topic is hilarious.
You guys are so funny, btw i read this earlier on the 1080p/60fps topic and i thought nothing of this.

Two disc is being played up and down
up: It means the game is better
"You can no longer contain de-power of FORZA on one disc my friend!"
down: blu-ray
"hahaha, get up, and get use to getting up, this is just to easy you into the Natal way of gamin!"

Seriously lol, i love you guys.

It'll be a great game, goodnight.

hay3421d ago

Forza 3 is shaping really nicely with tons of featurs It'll hook people for long time that's for sure.

Don't get me wrong. I love racers, Project Gotham Racing is my fav (crossing out the fanboyism stuff, aye?) but it was kinda weird and lame at the same time they hyped the game so much and yet have shown PR propaganda, scripted tons of tricks which won't happen ingame and all this american type of advertising when paid people sign under the features they probably don't know about.
Also it looked quite ridiculus they called the game the most uber racer ever and then the next day GT5 have easily blown it away.

Tons of tracks and cars, editors and other awesome stuff in Forza, cool. But the GT5 appears to be like 3 games in one. Typical GT, WRC and NASCAR which is totally impressive and never achieved before as far as I know(but may be wrong). Honestly, GT5 is few steps before being ultimate racing experience to be honest, I've never been big GT fan and never played it much but 5th one is my personal winner.

@1.3: So we have Lotus 3 again? With the difference that it's not Lotus at all. /joke

And... I find it totally amusing and ironical seeing Foxgod and really duh calling other people fanboys.

LightofDarkness3421d ago

Guys, we all need to sit down and really ask ourselves... does it matter? It's not going to affect my enjoyment of the game any more than frequent PS3 installs affect any other. I just... don't care. Only seriously insecure fanboys care about this stuff. I'm just happy that I get to play it. It takes about 20 seconds to swap a disc. And an install takes about 5 minutes. The hypocrisy and insecurity in this thread are BLOODY MIND-BOGGLING.

Mo0eY3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

Once again, and I'll state this every time it's oblivious, Xbox limitations put more costs for the publisher/developer to push two DVDs instead of one. This includes special casing, two discs, two different art types, twice as much work.

I hope that the next Xbox console is not so limited in terms of hardware.

Rob0g0rilla3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

Forza 3 is announced and fanboys start dropping bombs. "it looks better then gt5" blah blah blah. I won't even go into it but the same sensitive people now will be the same people commenting when GT5 has an install or something. They'll be the first or second person to post and they'll spew the same crap and troll. But it'll be "ok" for that person to do it. It goes back and forth. No troll or fanboy is better then the other.

Anyways, I been on this site for over a year and it's usually how it goes. Just to see people get all sensitive and angry because of what's going on right now is laughable. It's the same people that troll other articles. And yeah, probably on different accounts. It's pretty obvious.

Mr_Controversy3421d ago

Thats why this game is also going to ship on the dead UMD format right? lol!

boca3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

still 8 cars vs 16 in GT5 ???

disagree? so its not true?

Sitdown3421d ago

"Hideo Kojima has revealed the PS3's Blu-ray disc isn't big enough to house Metal Gear Solid 4 as he intended.

"For us, we're not still not satisfied with the quality we can do. You know, there's not capacity space.

"There's not enough space at all. (laughs) ...There's not enough space. We always talked about where to cut and what to compress," explained the Metal Gear creator."

Hmmmmmmmmmm......so swapping disc is last generation? So what I hear is...you rather have a developer cut their product so that it fits on one disc, rather than use multiple disc to fully realize their game? Yeah......you guys are making too much out of this disc swapping. What are you obese? Is it that hard to get off the couch and spend 5 seconds swapping out a disc?

psycho3603421d ago

@Sitdown
Great point and to add to that, Kojima also mentioned his disappointment with the game since what they were told about ps3 capabilities turned out to be false. That is why he was not satisfied with the end product. He could easily have made the game installable like pc games if he was only limited with the capacity of the disc. The crippled GPU with 256mb ram dint help him much in realizing his vision for MGS. HOpefully 360 will be better place for him to get his games to their true potential.

If pc games like crysis can come on one dvd and have better graphics than any consoles out there than what is such a hype for BD about? Some games can be made mandatory install and we can install the games on 360's HDD to play.

Perkel3421d ago

i don't realy want to offend anybody but forza on two discs is horrible idea !

GT2 as well have 2 discs (CD :D) but Disc 1 was Gran Turismo Mode and Disc two Arcade Mode but tracks and cars were the same !

I personally will get forza 3 but just think ?

Arcade X? What with xbox without disc ? or in multiplay ? You know i want to play camarro but everybody didn't download it !
I want to play fuji speedway but it's on other disc and couple of people downloaded it..

it's stupid idea ! That's all !

edit:

and what with content on DVD1 ? How many Cars how many tracks ?

so basicaly for eg 50:50 ? 200 cars on DVD1 and 200 Cars on DVD2 ?

Comeone turn 10 think something !

xwabbit3421d ago

hey rlly duh, which acc is this 1 ? 5th one?

menoyou3421d ago

Wow! A racing game on 2 discs? Now that's ridiculous. Can you imagine switching discs when you want to play a certain mode or switching discs when you want to play a particular car? You literally need ONE disc for games like racing, fighting, sports, etc. Blu-ray is finally shining and I'm sure GT5 will be packed to the brim with content.

aldesko3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

You're in intelligent guy... but if you honestly think you'll be getting instant 1080p streaming anytime soon, you need to educate yourself.

On topic: I don't see what the big deal is. As long as I can play the bulk of the game on one disc, anything else is extra.

ChozenWoan3421d ago

You have a great point about BD not being big enough for Kojima's full vision. But if 50gb is not enough, just how much does a 7gb dvd get you... 1 level per disc with a mandatory install at best. Yes, now that I see the world through your eyes, I'm sure MGSR will rival MGS4 for depth of content and all kinds of Kojima's personal touches.

Black Maverick3421d ago

Is it a big deal? Hell no.

Is it embarrassing? Indeed it is.

Microsoft execs and fanboys alike were running off at the mouth about how "Blu-ray isn't needed. DVD9 is enough." Now they're eating crow by having to justify a "racing game" shipping on two disc.

7ero H3LL3421d ago

the first disc has the game, the 2nd disc just has extra cars and stuff, for you to install on to your HDD.

Instead of the them ramming superlatives down our throats, which is rather arrogant, they should just let the game do the talking.

Wotbot3421d ago

would install one DVD on my dard drive, and then hopefully you can run the game of the other.

Lets hope they are thinking the same way.

soxfan20053421d ago

I'm thinking the same thing. Always require disc 1 in the drive, but allow the game to read data from both the actual disc as well as the installed data. This process would seemingly double the 360's storage.

Check the pics at the bottom, a great comparison over F2! its er, rather noticable!

Hydrolex3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

O' really ?

Xtards are idiots, they get owned every single day !

Montreafart3421d ago (Edited 3421d ago )

Lmao remember when the xbots tried to argue that Forza 2 is just as good as GT5?

Lmao remember that? Remember that, stupid xbots. And when it came down to it, even the demo of GT5 OWNED forza 2.

Not only did Forza 2 FAILED. Even the third installment is going to FAIL. Hahaha what a joke. Forza 3 just became irrelevant even before it came out.

And now the third title of Forza and where do we stand now. Lmao even GT PSP version owns the crap out of Forza 3.

Forever the inferior racing. Forever the inferior experience, shiatbots.

Thats why Forza is going the way of the arcade racing style. Because they realize that its impossible to beat Gran turismo, the only game to have NAILED realistic driving experience on consoles.
