    I'm curious if they'll have the Top Gear and/or Isle of Mann tracks in the game.

    If I like the car list, I might get it.

    But Forza just bores me. I don't want drive some obscure tuned Nissan Skyline that handles like a cinder block around the same 10 closed race tracks over and over again. Not fun for me. I don't care how realistic it is, I care about fun. I like a lot of different game modes, different tracks and environments, and a lot of different exotics, not just same Veyron, Murcielago, etc. Project Gotham 4 and Test Drive Unlimited 2 are my favorite racers for the 360, but ideally, early NFS (2SE and High Stakes) is the standard any racing game has to be for me to truly like it.

    I just saw this in the news. What a bummer. EA's racing games have been really bad. I really wanted to like NFS Shift 2 but I just couldn't get into it. The control was horriable. It might be time to stop buying EA products.

    I am not sure how much i will use this AutoVista feature. It might be fun if you are 12 years old but giving how every car is pretty well detailed with REAL pictures on the internet, why bother?

    You will be waiting until at least (minimum) of Holiday 2013, and more likely sometime in 2014. If Halo 4 is going to be released Holiday 2012; I'd say there is likely to be 5 released in 2013 before 6 is breaking new grounds on the 4D mind interface controller, and glasses-less 3d, as seen in the movie Jaws 19; slated for release in October of 2015

    This post was inspired by autowerks9 and his subject "blond at the FORZA tent" found here.

    The first pic below is the above referenced work of art, err work of autowerks9.

    All other pics are courtesy of a Google images search for "pretty girls forza", i.e. none of these are mine (unfortunately).

    is it still within the warranty limits? if not then the repair cost probably won't be far off from the cost of a new system. i've had the luck of my system breaking down within the warranty limits so it was replaced twice without any costs.

    What's the warranty on these things, a year? I don't recall when the 360 came out but my son got his shortly after they did so I gotta believe the warranty is expired (and I never buy the ext'd warranties).

    That said, he thinks he can switch hard drive with his brother's little used 360 so we'll try that first. I assume he knows about this from xBox videos/online chats; I'm clueless...I'm a player, not a fixer. :D

    If I post a "Slightly Non-Operable 360" on F Ads you'll know a) our efforts weren't successful b) it's from a Seattle company, not an Italian one. :D

    By the way...IT LIVES!!!

    My capitalist-in-training younger son is charging his older brother $5/month for use of his xBox plus retains playing rights when available...he should have held out for $10. I'm thinking of tacking on an electricity usage surcharge. :D

    A couple weeks ago I asked my local Gamestop if I could have the display and they told me to check back today.

    Picked it up this afternoon...

    i got the demo early. gotta say there's some major improvements just about everywhere. the physics are spot on now. the sound is great but there seems to be a problem with BMW M5 F10 and the '11 WRX STI, as they sound the same. really hope that's just because this is a demo. the subary doesn't sound like a boxter at all.

    With this game I finally decided I hate the MS Wheel and ended up pre-ordering the Fanatec CSR Wheel and Elite Pedals. I can't wait until I can start playing the game with a proper setup. Now do I bring my 993's seat into our loft and make a setup with that in the living room? My fiance will probably never stop making fun of me the second she sees me driving at our TV haha.

    It was really fun doing the timing sessions with the others on this board for Forza 3. Can't wait to do those again!!

    for single race you have a 458, '11 WRX STI and a Mercury Cougar.
    For rivals mode you get a BMW M5 F10, a 458 and a Zonda Cinque Roadster.

    This is much harder than FM3, it feels like the 458 is on ice.

    I'm not convinced after playing the demo. The graphics aren't a major upgrade, the damage model seems to be a little more realistic (brushing against a wall peels away paint) and the handling still isn't as direct as GT5 (though improved over FM3).

    The auto-vista mode is probably awesome, but my first impression is that possibly more attention went into features like Top Gear and Autovista than into gameplay and appearance.

    It's only a demo, so too early to judge...

    Just tried it on highest difficulty...you're right. FM3 is arcade-ish by comparison.

    I played it a couple of more times....I think I will like this one after all. Surprised at how much you have to fight the curves...I like that! I'm starting to think it is a step up. Graphics are better than I previously indicated. My daughters honestly asked if I was watching a race in Switzerland on television. The damage model is unforgiving though...any little scrape shows. I brushed the walls a couple of times and you can definitely see it.

    Warning: If you are looking for a challenging, sim-like racer, DON'T drive on med or easy.

    I started downloading it last night, so I'll finish tonight hopefully and give it a bash. Got other demos to play as well though. I'm particularly looking forward to battlefield 3 demo.

    I had a little go last night with the zonda cinque, I'm not fully convinced on the handling just yet, but I'll have a better go tonight and drive some different cars.

    Yeah, I can't handle over hard though or else I push too hard and just keep spinning.

    Personally I don't feel like this track is a good indicator of the handling, I'll hold judgement until I can race on a track from FM3 and compare. I'm not a big fan of the Swiss track, way too dark.

    Changed my mind, I've driven all the cars now and I'm completely sold, this game is going to be brilliant.
