Forza is the Best Racing Game Franchise Ever!

If you pause it when the car names stream past, he does very well to point to the lambos

Good video. Thanks. I'm really looking forward to this game. Probably the most out of any next gen launch title.

Shift series can have a lot of "wrongs" but their cockpit view is the best thing that happen to racing games.

Does anybody know if this will support my Logitech Drive force GT? long shot I know! If not, what about NFS Rivals on either xbone or PS4?

I hear what everyone is saying about the size of the car and track list but i would much rather have quality over quantity. GT5 was prime example - I never touched the standard cars unless I needed to pass an event. On the other hand I do think it is wrong that cars and probably tracks are being withheld for release as DLC which I would bet have already been created.

Car amount is a bit of a let down. When you hear things like hundereds of cars, you think hundreds of them, not that small list. The lack of cockpit views on most of the cars in GT5 bugged me with its long "development." Not sure if GT6 is gonna have all cockpit views or not. Still gonna buy this racer (Forza 5) although the car and track amount is somewhat of a let down given what we had in F4. Maybe we should have shorter development cycles and things might get better for the franchises. Just kidding, Great games. Glad both consoles give their owners close to realism racing sims.

Um, pretty sure you are the first people ever to call Jeremy Clarkson a "snappy dresser."

I love you guys but really?  The PS4 question could have been skipped.  The question about the Lamborghini's could have been answered by you guys or at least give a way to find out.  You guys are better then this.

@garysingh34 I agree. More is not better. There is sooo much filler when really how many D and C class domestic cars from the last 5 decades do you really need?

@zzgamerzz If your problem with the lack of cockpit view was actually driving in cockpit view, GT5 got an update ages ago for the standards that allowed blacked-out interiors for driving in cockpit view.  I basically couldn't use the standards until this update came; then, it was like 800 more cars had been added to the game.

@Spaceweed10 If you have no interest in the XB1, why did you come here to ask if anyone was buying one?  Some sort of puerile curiosity, or are you just a loser with nothing better to do with your time than trolling?

@Spaceweed10 I'm getting mine for Dead rising 3 and BF4 but i'm getting forza 5 for free as a bonus so it's all good for me:)

If you are looking for info on Forza 5, you are looking in the wrong place. Ask the game-makers instead.

@stickybun @garysingh34 I actually enjoy a vast repertoire of D, C and B class cars, and love the classics the most. what bugs me in these games (both Forza and GT) is that they release 15 identical GT3 Porsche 911s (or Vipers, Corvettes, Ferrari F430s etc) with different paintjobs as 15 different cars.

@Gelugon_baat I wasn't really looking for a one video tells all kind of thing.  I was more for just basic info on the game but when they don't directly answer a car count thats pathetic.  Its also a waste of time when they answer the obvious question of, "Will it be on PS4" 

jayd02

@Spaceweed10 I understand that they need comic relief but when they add a stupid question and don't answer a real question its a let down.

They didn't do terrible but those two instances really turned me off from the video.

@jayjay444 @Spaceweed10 NBA 2K14 is also 1080p on both systems. This is such a tired fanboy quote. To it I ask... would you rather play Dead Rising 3 at 720p? Or Knack at 1080p? 

jayjay444
jayjay444

@Spaceweed10 @jayjay444 Forza 5 is 1080p 60 fps, also dice has already confirmed the best version of BF4 for console is on Xbox One, also PS4 isn't full 1080p either lmao at u.

@jayjay444 @H4num4n @Spaceweed10 you can pay $50 dollars and get some cars in dlc I think. Major Forza fan here, but dissapointed on this. Who knows, I am sure we will be suprised on November 22nd.

@H4num4n @jayjay444 @Spaceweed10 I would guess there will be a F1 game at some point and maybe a need for speed? but I  would love another PGR game but Forza looks amazing so i'm going to play that but good luck to u dude I hope u find what your looking for.

@jayjay444 @H4num4n @Spaceweed10  

Hmm, i don't see any racng games coming on the X1 that are better than Forza. If only MS would bring out a new PGR or Rallysport Challenge then i had no problem waiting for them.

@H4num4n @jayjay444 @Spaceweed10 Your right I wanted to see if u really have played a forza game, Forza 3 has 400 customizable cars and i get why your annoyed at the lack of content mate but u just have to live with it get the game when it's like 10£ $10 that's what I would do, there's much better games than forza 5 coming soon so enjoy and relax ^^

@jayjay444 @H4num4n @Spaceweed10  

You are really cute aren't you? Forza3 had way more than 200 cars at launch(over 400) and also way more than 14 tracks.

jayjay444

@H4num4n @jayjay444 @Spaceweed10 Lmao your the one bitching about 14 tracks look at u, 200 cars is more than what was in Forza 3 well seen you've never even played it, I do understand why u would hate only 14 tracks but my point was I would rather have 14 tracks than have cars and tracks with PS2 graphics i know you love bumming Sony but u don't need to get aggressive:)

jayjay444

@H4num4n @jayjay444 @Spaceweed10  First of all it wasn't a ad it was the reveal or E3 when they mentioned it and also 200 cars and 14 tracks is 100x better than recycling cars and tracks from the PS2.

@jayjay444 @H4num4n @Spaceweed10  

Why should i believe what they say in their ads? I see that they are launching the game with only 200 cars and 14 tracks and that is phatetic and a shame.

@H4num4n @Spaceweed10 Microsoft claim Forza 5 has been in development for over 3 years so no it's not a rush job but it dose seem to me they focused most of their attention on the cars than they did the tracks but i'm guessing there will be free tracks a month or 2 after launch if not then 2 bad for the people who buy it I'm getting it for free because i live in the UK so i don't give a crap either way.

@Gelugon_baat I don't need a second hand report.  I was watching the video just to get informed on a game that I had no knowledge on.  I've never played a Forza game and I like to just know about games even if I don't play them on a normal basis.

If that information is basic then why bring it up at all?  This would then be the same for the PS4 question, a waste of time that could have been spent on a real question.

I liked the beginning of the video but I feel they wasted time with the PS4 question and then they blew off a legitimate question of car count.  How many cars doesn't measure the value but it is nice to know and it is nice to have variety.  The same can be said for fighting games as well.

@jayd02  

Also, why would you want them to recant that issue of number of cars? If the list is already there and there is already a news report, Forza 5's game-makers have already given the answer already. Do you prefer a second-hand report on this?

Gelugon_baat
Gelugon_baat

@jayd02

Rather, they perhaps think that this is knowledge too frivolous or already too well-known to mention. Besides, the news that Forza 5 would have supposedly only 200 cars is already widely reported. ;)

(Perhaps you think that the number of cars is a measure of value for the game, especially when compared to its predecessors, but not everyone else does.)

@Gelugon_baat The list has been available and they scrolled a list of cars in which they choose to not look through.

I can't see where I said ignorant but I feel I did say that and I retract my statement.  They just chose to no show knowledge.

Gelugon_baat

@jayd02 

Maybe they don't know the exact car count because the game-maker has not told them?

Being ignorant about something is different from being not privy to something, you should be reminded.
