It's a battle of two collector's packages as we pit these racing titans against one another to see who offers the better value to racing fans.
Forza was born from GT. GT (GT5 especially) is the ultimate racing game. If you like cars you LOVE GT. If you like Forza you should love GT, aswell. As for collectors edition`s, the GAME GT5 is a collector`s item. ;)
Neither. If ur a HUGE racing fan and you have the money, then more power to ya, but the reality is that your going to play the GAME..not the box the game comes in.
Wasn't the second disc in Forza 3 for installing content that couldn't fit in the main disc in the first place?
Gran Turismo 5 has the luxury of coming out an entire year after Forza 3...everything from packaging to value will be in response to how Forza 3 launched last year.. Forza 3 is an amazing racer..the 360 owners got a classic..it's the best that's out there now.. But we all know the years and painstaking detail that poly has put into GT5..from the amount of cars..to the night racing etc..it will raise the bar..once again For me..Polys take on Nascar is what I'm most interested in..looking forward to playing this beast in November Evil
@1 I am a huge GT fan myself, its my favourite game series, but how can you say GT5 is the ultimate racing game when it hasnt even been released yet. GT5 looks amazing but only time will tell if its the best racer ever. PS The article is seriously desperate.
Polyphony made a new engine, and a new game. With features that PreDate Forza2. No matter when F3 would have surface, it would still ship with 8 cars on tracks, low detail, no track editor, no weather, no night, no 1080p, disappearing tracks, incorrect cockpits etc, no wrc, nada. Polyphony is creating the game that they want to create that speaks to the enthusiasm & manufacture community. And its worth the wait, which is why people will line up to buy it. Even comparing feature to features, Forza can't compete. The only way it can compete is with metacritic scores that each mention Gran Turismo isn't out yet, so this will hold you over.. I mean come on, the Forza series hasn't even won over a large % of enthusiasts out there judging by its sad sales compared to the large # of 360's out there. The only thing Forza has going for it, is the decal system. Which it had in F2. Oh and GRID's rewind feature. Give me a break with this nonsense. All car games are generally the same thing. The only difference is physics & photo reality, which nothing can compare to GT even on PC's they come short in the visuals department. Re: "BUH BUH EVEN THE ONLINE PC COMMUNITY FORUM(S) PICK FORZA!" 1 site, of Xbox fanboys who also pretend to be PC enthusiasts who are made fun of in the world of GTR/Gplegends/Rfactor were the only site to come to that conclusion. If it was such a better game, its retail release wouldn't have barely sold the same amount as gran turismo's demo. You guys love Sales = Quality more than reality. So theres that to chew on, as well as just pure quality you can see in screens/video/presentation. PD does a good job at making games. Turn10 does a good job at rushing out garbage, lying to its consumers about things like photomode in cockpit view, car resolution, retarded online modes, same # of cars as the previous title on screen, little to no particle fx/atmospherics, forcing you to use 1 steering wheel, and copy and pasting cad models to slap an unrealistic physic model on.
They're not serious surely? Has it gotten so pathetic that retail packages are now being compared? Do not want.
Gran Turismo the...
wiener.... GT5 is awesome, but these little comment continuations are stupid
Real Driving Simulator. That's what he was going for
Well you all f*cked that one up.
people want silly agree's from blind fanboys. there's no comparison here. GT wins hands down.
...definitive... The fact that GT5 buy itself will offer far more content than Forza on 2 discs could should have decided this right away.
*facepalm* Sorry, but the level people will go to in order to continue to compare these two IPs is just ridiculous, IMHO.
" GT5 BLU-RAY VS FORZA 3 DVD'S, WHICH BREAKS EASIEST?!" wait and see...
killing fields. Just a suggestion.
games should be judge by their gameplay... not their collectors edition.... but the GT5 looks much better
silly article is silly
made me lol
The article is pretty pointless but it kinda mad me want that limited Edition a lot more. But my budget does not cover a video game that cost $99.99 :'( wish it did.
Is the ultimate, supreeme, elite, and definitive racing game. With or without a collectors edition. In this case it's the best package of both. GT5 FTW!!!! :)
how is this article silly i think u guys are the silly he was just comparing the two thas no flame bait nothing like that but u guys wanna tear somebody work down
You know what puts the GT5 edition miles ahead? The GAME DISC.
The way every car and track comes on one disk other then two? I'd say I agree, but...
I meant the game itself. The content as a whole, the software. But yes, that too.
this comparison is a bit too early I mean they haven't see anything other than 1 pic of the GT5 collector edition, wait until its out before doing comparisons.
Amazing what sites compare to get hits now and amazing how trolls can compare two games where one they have not even played yet
If that's the collector's edition, the ultimate edition will be amazing looking. (Haha, not a big enough racing fan to buy it myself, but it'll be impressive none the less).
wow..we get it, stop.
no matter how great you sony fanboys think GT5 is going to be, you cannot disregard the fact that Forza 3 is a brilliant Racing Simulator. it is NOT an arcade racer like you like to think it is, its as hardcore sim as they come. its simulating things that GT5 isnt - GT5 now has tyre temperature........well Forza 3 has tyre temperature in 3 different spots of the tyre, which all affect how the car handles. Forza 3 even has Tyre Flex, which im yet to see in GT5. in Forza 3 you can SEE all the mechanical aspects of the car being simulated by going bringing up the Telemetry HUD and flicking through everything. you can see the shocks working, the camber, what percentage of each tyre is in contact with the road surface. then when you mod the cars, you can see the changes that the mods make by test driving and using the Telemetry. you can adjust the downforce provided by aftermarket bodykits and spoilers, and see the effects that doing that has on the car. in GT5, you cant. theres also the fact that Forza 3 is sitting on 92/100 on metacritic - higher than GT4 and GT5:P. what makes this incredible is the fact that back when GT1-4 got reviewed, there were literally no other car sims out there on consoles, GT was one of a kind - meaning it got reviewed with no peers, artificially inflating its score. they were also released in the golden age of video game magazines, and at a time when sony ruled the roost - if you read through their list of reviews on metacritic, its a veritable 'whos who' of sony fansites/magazines, all giving them the incredibly high scores that every single PS exclusive game inevitably gets from fanboy/official sites. Forza 3 doesnt have that luxury. as for the article, reviewing limited editions seems like a stupid thing to do to me. the author obviously doesnt even have the Forza 3 Limited edition though, since he says that the Forza 3 USB drive is made of solid metal that will tarnish. its made of plastic, like every other USB drive out there lol. the forza 3 limited edition also makes your Forza 3 profile a VIP account, meaning that Turn 10 will gift you free and upgraded cars with exclusive liveries every now and then. last time i checked theyd given me about 10 or so, along with the 10 cars i got with the limited edition. and they give that a tie with GT5 which just gives you 5 cars? basically this guys just comparing 2 pictures hes seen on the internet. epic fail.
I did hope the model car could have been standard-norm size 1:18 scale instead of itsy-bitsy 1:43.. still can't complain and it's a collectible. Would have been great if they offered the collector's edition inside a race car helmet ( ala Halo 3 ) with a large sticker of the country ( of origin ) on top of helmet.. plus the keys and toy car.
