Microsoft has announced that Forza Motorsport 3 will be released on 27th of October in North America. No European date has been given, but we've contacted Microsoft for comment.
Just in time to here splinter cell conviction is delayed... Very smooth Microsoft...i really dislike you now .,
At least there is still Halo and Shadow Complex.
This is AWESOME! Forza 3 baby! One thing that does suck is SC: Conviction delayed?? WTF!!! Could it be because of Halo ODST and MW2?
@1.1 - Well not really good news for Xbox only owners though. But if you have more than one console you'll have enough games to buy.
How are delays good? Anyways i am quite surprised that the game is ready to release so soon
Splinter cell: conviction was delayed, is this true? A part of me is annoyed, another part is relieved that it is one less game to buy this fall, but why couldn't it of been another game? I've been really looking forward to Splinter cell conviction :(
delays are good is when the developer does them to fix a problem. Just because you do not have the money to purchase all the games at one time, does not mean others should not be allowed to. On the other hand, if there are gamers like me out there..then it could be a problem. I say that, because usually if I do not get a game within a week or two after launch, it usually falls off my radar until it gets considerably cheaper.
Yeah but it's not like they'll disappear if you can't afford them on day one. So delays are bad for a gamer like me I guess. But in reality, you always hope it's for the best of the game. It just sucks having to wait longer if you were anticipating it.
"for a gamer like me, delays are very good, they give me time to save up the cash" not only will it not disappear from shelves until you get the cash, but it is likely to be reduced in price as well! Double bonus! You got money and it is cheaper! Too bad it got delayed. I was looking forward to this game, but wasn't planning to buy until it hits below $20-30 anyhow.... I got huge backlog of games.
3 more months....crap!
At least we won't have a shortage of games this fall (especially if you own both consoles). early 2010 is going to be crazy, though... SC:C, Mass Effect, GoW3, Alan Wake, Bioshock 2, MAG....
Awesome. It's coming pretty soon. Looks like people who own each console will be happy in October.
I hope polyphony will now feel compelled to set a date for GT5.
yes please. how did forza 2 do in europe? racing sims are very popular over here, surely we should get F3 the same date. Same goes for GT5.. damn game politics.
October will be awesome... +my bday. :)
MS wanted to make sure that every 360 owner has more than enough time and resources to buy the definitive racing game of this generation. When every 360 gamer has utilized their opportunity to experience the definitive racing game of this generation they will want to play it for months, giving enough time to complete Splinter Cell. Oh, and Forza 3 is the definitive racing game of this generation. I had to repeat it in case you might have forgotten that Forza 3 is the definitive racing game of this generation.
The defenitive racing game of this generation is the one with the best reviews, and that points to a different game.
Not every 360 owner is a racing fan, and Splinter Cell and Forza are in no way competing. Come on, they are entirely different genres. It's like saying that GT 5 has no release date because Sony wants it to stay clear of Uncharted 2. It's just stupid. And let's not get into this definitive thing. It is purely of opinion, there is no such thing as the definitive racer or definitive game. In some people's opinions, Motorstorm may be the definitive racer. And do I even need to tell you that neither game has yet to be released. How do you know which one is better? (Not bashing Forza here... it's a sick looking game which I will be sure to spend at least a few hours on)
I think "ThatArtGuy" was joking, you know, acting like the guys of Turn10 on the E3 conference xD..
That's your opinion. Wait and see what comes out 2010 and then we'll talk.
You are saying that Forza 2 is the defenitive racing game of this generation? It is the one that reviewed the best. That's good to know where you stand.
That was sarcasm, guys. He was poking fun at Turn 10 for their constant chanting about Forza 3 being "the definitive racing game of this generation".
Hehe, I sort of thought so for a minute. It seemed pretty ridiculous, but you never know... lots of idiots out there...
It's not sarcasm if you have to explain it. :P I'm a GT fan through and through.
didnt they already reveal the release date at E3? because somehow i already knew it was october 27th
4 milions on 1st Month.
You must be out of your mind .
Is that date definitive?
Racing sym fans dont forget about NFS:Shift. Heard a lot of good things about it. Quick question, besides MW2 what is scheduled as november/december release?
I'm pretty sure this game will keep me entertained for the rest of the year. Still playing Forza 2 from time to time. Endless fun to be had with all the customization.
Hopefully, it keeps you entertained. The exclusive list for 360 is looking slim.
i think thats it for November/December...
Thanks dude. I appreciate your feedback. AC2 is a major launch as is MW2 despite Activision greedy practices. L4D2 is big too but it' s just on Pc/360. Interesting.
Yeah, hopefully they don't jew us on the Jap downhill this time, with so much content on this game its almost an insult to add DLC - it better be newly released cars or something. Like Sony said, adding DLC to GT5 would be like throwing water into the ocean. I think the same could be applied to this game.
HOLY SH!T!!! So soon?
On another note.... I blame all these delays on Modern Warfare 2...
Forza? oh you mean the definitive racing game of this generation.
Imaging if it got delayed to the next generation... no not Star Trek although that would be cool. *checks up cool in the dicitionary' It'd be the opposite of uncool.
Octobers is looking great for me, Uncharted 2 and Forza 3, Fuuuck yeah
100.00% chance I will own this game on the release date.
after the new information that Splinter Cell is not coming out this year for the 360, it is unanimous, the PS3 wins! You bots better pray every night that GT5 DOESN'T COME OUT! Regardless, Uncharted 2 beats every game you have coming out hands down! Gay TONY ISN'T GOING TO CUT IT! HALO DLC ISN'T GOING TO CUT IT! L4D ISN'T GOING TO CUT IT! FORZA 3 ISN'T GOING TO CUT IT! WAIT THAT'S IT FOR THE CRAPBOX 360! BOTTY BOYS, YOU'VE HAD A BAD YEAR! WELL IT IS GOOD TO BE A PS3/Wii/PC OWNER! EXCLUSIVES KILLZONE 2 BOUGHT MLB 09 THE SHOW BOUGHT InFamous BOUGHT DEMONS SOULS BOUGHT ---- TO BE PURCHASED UNCHARTED 2, RATCHET AND CLANK CIT, NGS2, AND MAG!
what do you expect dear with only 400 cars ( looool the psp gt is 500 cars) and with no night / morning system + only crappy 720p + only one type race + 2d trees + only 8 cars on the screen in the same time ofcors it's already done stupid bot even GT5:P (witch is only a demo ) has more content than this carp + true 1080p 60fps + 16 cars on the screen in the same time enjoy your flop bots ha ha ha
