Connected Consoles: Forza 4 has just been announced at the VGA's.
Well that was unexpected! The Forza franchise is growing quickly O_o I hope they will make it an interesting sequel. Oh I see people disagreeing, well I don't have an Xbox anyway, I don't know about the evolution of Forza (milking or not), but I wasn't expecting a Forza 4 announcement tonight, even though they talked of Kinect Forza at E3. All Turn 10 has to do is to not develop it too quickly. @kaveti, well I do hope they will make a great game, they must not disappoint racing fans on Xbox. I guess only time will tell.
A little too quickly. I don't want to be the guy to say this, because generally the people to say it are annoying fanboys, but I would have hoped that Microsoft would have held off on another Forza game until the next generation. Forza 3 is on 2 discs and the game engine already, according to Turn 10, uses the full strength of the console. I would have hoped that Forza 4 would be on the next Xbox because Turn 10 has already put itself in the position of competing with the GT franchise and so far GT5 improves on all the simulation aspects that Forza 3 had in place. If Turn 10 wish to raise the bar, they shouldn't be making Forza 4 for the 360. But, that being said, I am confident it will be a great game, just not leaps and bounds better than its predecessor.
This will reck GT5 interms of metacritic score. @replies: I'm not saying I agree with it :\!
and GT5 will wreck it in terms of sales and driving enthusiast's preference. So what?
Weird, I thought sales didn't matter?
Weird, I thought review scores didn't matter? boom, neither matter as long as you like it =) (hence driving enthusiast's preferences being with GT5)
but xbots like sales so we bring it up just to show that we have games that can beat ur games in sales too rather than quality alone
I cant tell if you are trolling for the 360 or against it because of your avatar.
WOW!!! FALL 2011!
MS really came out of no where with this announcement
Meh. I already have Forza2 and Forza3. The graphics aren't that big of a deal to me. If they were I would get GT5.
Did NOT see that coming. At all.
And I thought the shitstorm was over goddamnit
It better be good, it has biiiig shoes to fiil
lol another one? turn 10 needs to learn how to take time with there games like PD, GT4 sold more then all 3 forza's combined and there is a reason for that.
The trolls are really coming out today, eh? I, for one am really excited for Forza 4 to come out. Competition between Turn 10 and Polyphony is always a good thing. Higher quality games.
What a twist!
i like cars
im glad that a high metacritic score equates to quality of a game. i guess thats why halo 3 and gt4 had so many 10s.
not enough to hype me.... there was no actual game play. i'll wait for some game play...... hopefully it'll match GT5's physics.
Was that offroad they showed? That wasn't in 3? So they'll have more racing outside of standard road racing?
Whoa now which part is real and in-game.... No seriously!
Can't w8 to see more of this,GT5 is excellent but let's see new forza :)
That's great now can it match GT5 1080p standard with snow and rain?
You mean the bad looking rain and snow that doesn't show up in mirrors and has weird jaggy shadows in it?
good thing forza 4 is coming out. another great competition for gran turismo series! liked GT more than forza, but I think releasing another forza can push kazunori yamauchi to consider GT6 on the PS3 and not next gen. Now that the engine og GT for ps3 is done, only have to perfect a little more the graphics, more prenium cars and concentrate on damage and customization. A lot of the hard job is done, so why not another one? PS1 = GT1 GT2 ; PS2 = GT3 GT4 ; PS3 = GT5 ??? so it would make sense
GT5 will go against Forza4 for the VGA 2011 )
Wow ..... out of left field. Can they outdo the reigning champ of racing sims this gen, Forza 3?!
Forza 4 announced at E3 ! they announce it 2 times ?! lol
This is pretty much the biggest announcement of them all.It just better not be Forza kinect can that garbage turn 10 and focus on the beast known as Forza Motorsport 4.
cool - but why didnt we get to see any ingame gfx? I really hate when they announce shit on a show without showing anything but a video reel + ppl who actually thinks it will look like that?
OH YES!!! The best simulation racer folks!!!!!!!!! Keep your excuses to yourselves sony fanboys, the truth is out. Forza is king. Forza 3 already destroys GT5 in both customization, amount of premium cars, crash physics, and online community. I expect the same with Forza 4. TURN 10 is a beast of a developer!!! LOL!!! Look at all the jealousy and hate. WOW. I thought the sting of GT5 averaging a low 84% would already been old news but I guess not. Look at them go!!! LOL!
lol fanboy play both games, GT5 rocks
Forza 4? Is that how many discs it will be on? :)
Who gives a damn how many discs, I've got 250gb of hard drive space.
Soooo much fanboys!!!!! lol FIGHT!!!!
I know I'm going to get flamed to hell for this, but...does anyone not think that, although GT5 may well be the better game (compared to Forza 3), that the difference in quality isn't as great as you'd think, when you consider how long Forza 3 was in development for, compared to GT5? I'm not saying anything is wrong with GT5, just that it seemed to be in development forever and Forza can be knocked out easily.
Forza is knocked out easily because there's no graphically differences between 2 and 3, the cockpits aren't specifically modelled, there's no weather/night effects to deal with, no dirt/snow to deal with. I predict this will be no different, incrimental upgrade. That's why Forza is knocked out so quickly.
That's because PD was working on an engine just for the PS3 so it would be flawless among other fanservices. Sony and it's developer studios don't fuck around when it come to games.
Why on gods earth is the biggest flame war about freaking racing games?
I know right!!! It gives me a laugh everything I see these stupid war lol
they annouced forza 4 in e3 .....
This is going to suck so bad, not because it's Forza but because a SIMULATOR can't be made in 2 years, you're trying to simulate 'REAl LIFE' after all and I don't believe that can be achieved in just 2 years. Forza 3 sucked because of it's short development time and so will this.
Goodness me, the SDF is out for blood. People simply talking about the actual announcement are getting flooded with disagrees. MS adds a new exclusive for next year and everyone has a nervous breakdown. I'm looking forward to Forza 4 but until then I'll be playing GT5. You people all need to seriously relax. And how many times are you people go to milk the claim that (insert game you don't like here) is milked?
I wish the internet had log in accounts connected to the person in real life, that way people might be a little more careful about what they say and write. I for one have not played the Forza series but have been thinking about picking it up in the bargain bin recently.
Definitely do, but Forza 2 is definitely the better of the 2... 3 is meh.
Why is everyone going crazy now that Forza Motorsport 4 has been announced? Seriously? Wtf is going on?! Now we have fanboys just bringing all this hate now this topic just got way out of hand. Everyone.... Calm down. Shouldn't we be happy that a new racing game has just been announced? More fun for Forza fans and car lovers. Geez.
They are to busy having their head in each other ass to see that all this fighting is stupid.
oh look they copied top gear from gt5
Cant Wait :D
