wish i could remember, its been a while. Anyways the trap speeds are WAY off on some cars. Thats because they based the speed and acceleration of the cars on the ratings they gave em and not by actual stats like horsepower and weight

I have an awd r33 skyline engine swapped datsun 510 on forza 3 that nearly traps 170 in the quarter mile. car is absolutely nuts.

the drag racing is kind of poorly created. if you are doing test and tune, it loads and the clocks already ticking. there's no prep, there's no launch, you have to be on the gas before it's done loading. pretty boring. cool feature, just not done well.

def checking out motorstorm apocalypse as well. Killzone....maybe they can get it right on the third try. 2 was a big let down for me.

Halo...I have never liked it. COD is so much better. But it is a very popular game with a large following. Halo is old news IMO...but to each their own.

All fanboyism aside....it comes down to which games you prefer. Having the blu-ray built in is really nice though.
Twisted Metal has been confirmed to come out in 2011 according to David Jaffe (God of War and Twisted metal creator) he has been working on it since late 2007, the final relase date has not been anounce yet but rumor is around October 2011. Also Sony owns the Twisted metal I.P. Like Gran turismo, so it will always be a playstation exclusive.

I hope its good. Twisted metal 2 was one of my favorite games of all time. Twisted metal black was pretty good also. They could really make it something on ps3 if they take their time with it etc.

The drag racing sucks. All I do is spin my tires off the launch. Hopefully thats fixed for Forza 4. They need to do something similar to NFS Prostreets drag racing.

Don't give it a full throttle launch from redline.

They did an example at E3 6 months back, there is no throttle, the game will Auto gas and Auto Brake for you. Which means all you do is steer, your basicly almost on rails with no force feedback and poor A.I. cars to accomodate slow imput steering. I think thats lame, a racing game is a game you need a controller or a wheel, when people race at Lemans or Nascar they don't have imaginary steering wheels. But to each there own.

It wasnt called an arcade model at that time anyway...it was called a CORE model...dont be so ignorant.

Yes non-auto feed is a negative. Failures? LOL...dont even talk about that. 360 had an over 30% failure rate at its peak (absolute trash). EVERY person I knew with an earlier model got a red ring eventually.

Dont be so IGNORANT...and read my posts before you post IGNORANCE
I have had both a 360 and a PS3 fail on me.

RROD and YLOD

only difference was that Microsoft actually fixed my console. Sony wanted $180 dollars to fix it, and then they still fail after the fix.

Umm your making no sense Forza is suppose to be racing simulation game, useing an imagination steering wheel with obviously no force feedback and not controling throtle or braking makes no sense . Though from what I am playing of Forza and looking at how they are moving foward it apears Forza is more of a Arcade/Sim hybrid game now.

You do not have to use kinect for this game to work. You can still use a controller... they just added kinect as an option since it is the new thing from xbox.

I think the point went over your head.

like mentioned using kinect is just an option.

Acualy kinect is not an option for forza 4 but a mode, since your not able to control the car with the exception of veeeeeerrrrryyyyy slow steering response. Campain is off limits but there is kind of like a dealership mode that you look at the cars with kinect to. BTW I think you misunderstand me, I wasn't talking about a hand controller but a wheel with gas and break pedals, last time I check they still use those in raceing. But even if you use a hand controller you still have the ability to control steering, acceleration, braking and fast response time. Thats not possible with kinect, heck thats not what its designed for either. They already showed how they are going to use it.

Mustang vs. Camaro like XBox 360 vs. PS3.

I have both game systems. Now I need both cars.

I've been playing Gran Turismo 5 non-stop since it came out. Those screen shots for Forza 4 look pretty awesome though. Also, am I the only person who thinks the 458 Italia is ugly?

Seriously?), a flawed PI system, race modes simplified to the point of being a joke(drag racing comes to mind), bland interface, and various bugs/glitches that come to mind (vehicle interiors with non functioning gauges/displays or missing said gauges/displays altogether), among other things.

While being able to virtually 'kick the tires' with Kinect does sound somewhat intriguing (actually using it while driving in-game sounds a bit more hokey), I hope they don't sacrifice addressing the above issues just for the sake of implementing its use in the game...

I love the 599 but the 612 is alright looking. The California looks good too but the 458 looks the best IMO.

Nice car btw, that's the best color on the new mustangs!
