How Will Bungie's Departure Affect Turn 10?

So how will Bungie's Departure Turn 10? It won't, says Turn 10 Studios (big) boss man Alan Hartman. The developer of Forza Motorsport 2 and adoring child to providing parent company Microsoft isn't planning on going independent any time soon, says the studio manager. According to Hartman's in-company interview, the guys at Turn 10 seem pretty content working for Microsoft, who they say has nurtured a good environment for them to build one of the strongest racing franchises this generation.

Plus, Hartman's not interested in doing the necessary paperwork. With the recent shake-up of internal development studios at FASA and Bungie, plus the snatching away of two third party developers to third party publishers, the Xbox crowd may be worried that Turn 10 has their eye on the door. Hartman's pretty clear, saying of the Bungie deal that it's a "win-win situation as far as I can tell, but not one I'm very interested in."

why dont you go back to giving Nasim some head.

Forza 2 is the best racing game ever. (and yes i do have almost every driving game with the exceptions of those on the PS3 which i dont have yet)
I have a GT3 set-up in my garage with two wheels and two PS2s. I sometimes even wear a crash helmet for fun while playing.
And i can say that NOTHING comes close to Forza 2.

I'm playing PGR4 now, and to be honest, its sux.
I dont see why people were raving about its graphics. They are not that good. The cars look like they float above the track and seem superimposed rather than being part of it.

One day GT might regain its crown but until then Forza 2 is the best.
