why on earth would anyone put that mini tank Ford F150 into a racing game. it was bad enough that NFS:MW12 had to do it, but now this.

come on, MS, dont fuck it up! you'll have to pay extra to get the new mclaren and the new viper? and if you pay extra you get double rewards AND can get any car in the game for free? that's not rewarding gamers, that's not rewarding talent, that's cheating even before the game starts! please, please, take it back, like you did with every single thing you said before about the xone...

This game will be amazing just like every other Forza before it!!! before I found Forza I was really into NFS and other racers like ridge racer and Asphalt. But then I saw Forza 2 and that was all she wrote I have not touched any other racer. Forza is hands downs the greatest racing game ever made... Well I still play NFS most wanted on original Xbox from 2005.

LoL, for just 20 bucks more, you can get ALL the cars in the game.


Don't forget, you'll need an online connection to activate this game.


Have a nice day.

FORZA 5 = The ONLY reason for me to even consider getting an XBONE.

Wonder if my G25 wheel will finally work on the new box.

Forza Motorsport 5 will be the reason why I would buy a Xbox One. PERIOD! Though for every positive I hear I almost always hear a negative so I have some concerns about Forza Motorsport 5 and here they are.

* Will the game support quality (simulation) steering wheels such as Fanatec?

* The trend for every Forza game since the first has been to scale back the simulation further and further to point where I have to ask is Turn 10 even considering this a simulation racer?

* Is Turn 10 still going to release this as a half finished game (they planned to utilise Microsofts always online policy to stream content).

* How much of the game is taken out? I heard Storefront, Livery Editor, Communities are gone, is that true?

I have my preorder for my DAY ONE EDITION Xbox One & Forza Motorsport 5 but it's pending on the information I'll get in the coming months.

This game is looking good! This is a reason why I may have to buy an XboxOne at some point. If only Sony could make a new GT game that's up to par with Forza, that would make life a lot easier

I wish EA would just give up the Porsche license. Lets be honest here, ea isn't doing a dam thing decent with it.

Forza 5 for X1 is shipped incomplete.. Again another scam from MS. First before they changed it - You have to download a bunch of stuff before being able to play the game because the entire game is not on the disc.. which means you pay $60 for the game, come home and boot the game but can not play it till you download all the stuff, which means you have to be connected to the internet..

Upon changing the games policy- You can now play Forza 5 without the DLC but you can not finish it!! The fucking career mode THE MAIN MODE.. Can not be finished! SO you STILL HAVE TO GO ONLINE and download the remainder of the game.. Which in essence is the same requirement just to boot the game.. MS and Turn 10 no doubt would expect you to pay the FULL $60 price tag- For incomplete game.

If those gamers out there did not allow MS to let fuck you in the ass, This shit probably would not happen like. But since a lot of you gamers out there will purchase this game therefor telling MS they can fuck you in the ass for a incomplete game well then.. Yuk

Interesting, but I dunno if I'll bother.

Only $50? I'm pretty sure Forza Motorsport 4 had more DLC than that...

Porsche Pack alone was $30, plus all the car packs were $7+ and there was 12 of them I believe. Then you have the Muscle Car pack (10 dollars). The VIP pack (15). The Pre-order pack (15)

That's $124 extra that players had to spend to get all the content assuming you bought the standard edition of the game BRAND NEW.

If you bought the Essentials Edition you had to spend more money, and if you bought either of these editions used you can tack on another 10 dollars for the Track Pack. 

That's about $134.00 extra on the initial cost of purchase at $60. $200 dollars for a frigan video game.

I like you T10, but I don't like this new road you're taking. I also thing you held back quite a bit on Forza Motorsport 5. No variable weather, no night racing, removal of the Auction House and Storefront. I'm sure you nailed the physics,but remember what made your original game special.

And gamers will also only need to spend $50 more on DLC what a bargain!

What's the point of all those other unlocks if you get a token to unlock every car in the game anyway?

Call me crazy or a super fan, but I trust Turn10 will do its best to deliver a solid racer. Since, Forza Motorsport on the original Xbox Turn10 packs in so much content it amazes me how they get the results they do on that hardware.

@SIDEFX1 You have to do that with most PS3 games that get released. Now sure what your talking about. Crawl back under your rock bias cow.

@SIDEFX1 Sorry mate Us Xbox guys just going to download our game from on-line we not going to the store so it won't be a problem Remember all games can be downloaded day one unlike sony. Also i already see games are cheaper on live the used at gamestop

@SIDEFX1 Yeah yeah, and how many games overall do the exact same thing that don't come straight from MS?

@broly1800 Drive Club what a load of 30fps garbage and GT has been lagging for years, what else do you have?

@Acekidder @obsequies I was slightly over exaggerating but the fact that it was slightly makes my point more profound. This console will be launching with forza, a play to win killer instinct and a bunch of PC games.

@obsequies @Acekidder Your very MISINFORMED. Dead Rising 3, Sunset Overdrop, Quantam Break, new Halo, Killer Instinct, Forza, first Blacktusk video game, and many more. Please do your research first before you comment. So many of you are uninformed.

@obsequies @Acekidder @H4num4n  

It's f2p so will get it for both.

It simply depends on your own taste what to get. I like Halo and Forza - the rest like Spark, Quatum Break, etc. is just a nice bonus.

If you like movie games like Uncharted and TLOU or Racing games like GT more you get the PS4.

@H4num4n Ignore him he is full on in denial and just wants to shout ps4 ps4 when they have nothing of merit anywhere near launch.

@obsequies @H4num4n You know absolutely nothing and spark is first party and actually free at launch go play on the motorway you tool.

H4num4n

@obsequies @H4num4n  

That's what it is meant to be.

It comes for PC, X1 and 360.

There is a stream on TwitchTV about Project Spark. Very interesting to look.

@obsequies Dead Rising 3 is full exclusive published by microsoft and they even helped with production sorry but no you wont get it, filler what are you talking about? and Ryse son of Rome.

You are just being a jealous tool well done.

obsequies
obsequies

@H4num4n @obsequies so microsoft is developing themselves? because I'm pretty sure they would be producing it, and even then the ties will be mild. If its a full out first party exclusive from a daughter company then times will be tough. 

obsequies
obsequies

@H4num4n @obsequies it's an indie, it's not first party and it can't afford to be exclusive. There is no way in hell that microsoft will pay a developer more money than what a game can make selling from 3 platforms. Thats counter productive for both ends.

obsequies

@H4num4n @obsequies oh yeah lol. If we are comparing timed exclusive indies then Jonathan blows ~ the witness on PS4 completely annihilates. Probably the most anticipated indie game. and most important indie dev in the industry

obsequies

@Acekidder @obsequies titanfall is a pc game, spark is a filler timed release and dead rising 2 is off the radar..most likely timed

Acekidder
Acekidder

@obsequies @Acekidder Nope Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Killer Instinct, Forza 5, Titanfall, Project spark....way more compelling then anything on ps4 you have to agree.
