Forza 3 already won against GT 5, so Forza 4 will be miles ahead when it is released. There is no competition. At the moment the only thing GT 5 has going for it is its massive fanbase if only forza had such a massive fanbase like GT as it certainly deserves it.

Comparing Forza with GT is getting old. They are two differnt games. 360 has Forza 1-4, PS3 has GT5.

Forza is an action sim racer
GT5 is a virtual sim racer

Forza has flair and is a sim that pushes into an arcade feel.
GT5 is what it is. A fanboy tribute the passion of driving. It's a CAR-P-G, if you will

Just enjoy what you got on the system you got.

Only in the States, did GT5 sell below expectations. Europe and Japan are completely cooky for the GT5 sweetness. This is where fanboyism is a major fail.

360 may have Forza, But GT5 is the PS3 sim racer. It also has WipEouT, Motorstorm, ModNationRACERS. Forza games usually sell around 2mil or so, So why doesn't the 360 aim to explore more than Forza? Can't we get a new PGR?

Try taking an R1 car around a corner at 200 MPH, and show us just how "arcade" Forza 3 is.

Biggest2869d ago

Forza doesn't have real tracks. Maybe it should work on that before you say it won anything.

dirthurts2869d ago

Real tracks are over rated.
Fantasy tracks are far more interesting. I've played those "real tracks" in a hundred other racing games. I want something new.

Abriael2869d ago (Edited 2869d ago )

@dirthurts what he means is realistically modelled tracks, at least when they're reproducing a real world track. Forza 4 will definitely have "real" tracks, just like Forza 3 did.
What remains to be seen is if they'll actually reproduce the real tracks with a shred of fidelity this time around, or they'll just change them around as they please like they did in Forza 3.

When you aim to create a simulation that's not exactly the best path to take.

I welcome fantasy tracks in addition to real ones, but when you put in tracks like Mugello (on which I have driven in real life), i'd like a simulation to offer a simulative experience, not something that has nothing to do with reality (like the Forza 3 version).

Abriael2869d ago (Edited 2869d ago )

I would say a few millions of people (and realistic physics) disagree.

GT5 has a massive fanbase because it deserves it. The Forza series had a quite great fanbase after Forza 2 too, but that fanbase melted after Forza 3 when Turn 10 shown quite clearly that they had absolutely no intention to fix the many problems the game suffered from (underfeatured hoppers, screwed up RWD physic, completely skewed IP system and so forth).
Too busy releasing useless DLC after useless DLC, with cars 90% of the people won't even touch with a stick (and that they would see as green blobs in the case they didn't give Turn 10 more money, yay immersion!)

That's a great way to alienate your fanbase, and the Forza 3 forums have always shown that quite clearly.

@ Praxx

What do you meant by Won? Reviews ? Sales ?

GT5 ten days sales is bigger than forza 3 lifetime sales!

punkpop1012868d ago

Sales doesn't equal quality as ps3 fanboys said a few days earlier.

Forza 4 will be forza 3 with kinect

aviator1892869d ago (Edited 2869d ago )

lol...how many people are going to say the same thing??
I swear I've heard this statement several times it's just getting old...

It's an entirely new sequel to the franchise. The only thing is that the new game will now support kinect for those who wish to play forza with kinect.

jeez.

Abriael2869d ago

If Forza 4 will feature the same degree of "improvement" between forza 2 forza 3, then It won't be much more for sure.

I will buy it, mostly because of the ability to paint on cars, but after being sorely disappointed by how they managed to make online racing worse than in the previous title, my hype meter is quite low.

muzzy2869d ago

It will allow you to finish 1st without driving. The total experience.

Abriael2869d ago

lol at "kinect" (with automatic acceleration and braking) in the same press release as "realism".
