There is a separate Forza 4 event I believe, quite a big one.

Is this going to be like Gran Tourismo where you have the minority of cars modelled to this level of detail and the rest like the previous game?

i hope so.. i know ME3 will be shown in more detail, and hopefully tomb raider.. but from MS this and gears are the only exclusives hitting this year and cant afford to be ignored.

No Turn 10 have way too much pride in their work for that. You wont get as much content, but you're garenteed a consistant quality in what you do get

Hope so. Either way, 16 players, and the online world tour mode will be worth the buy for me.

NO!! Certainly not!

wow! GT5 got dethroned, but those interiors can't be the same car models as the ones you race with, it has to be different.

I wouldn't call the press conference mediocre. Plus you do know that Microsoft have 4 more E3 events throughout the week don't you? Although 2 are dedicated to Gears Of War 3 (and Exile?) and Forza 4, the other 2 will be showing off other games.

and dropping a million credits on your dream car, you'd think it's off to the showroom to learn all about it. Well, that's not how it works. Not directly, anyway. The Career and Showroom aren't the same thing. The Showroom needs to be seen as a "new level," said Greenwalt - it's "not Career." The Showroom experience has around 10 hours of unique content, challenges, and cars to view, but it isn't tied to the vehicles you've earned and purchased through your racing career.
Sounds like there's only going to be a certain amount of cars rendered at that level of detail, not all 500+ cars in the game.

Well it would be pretty insane of them to do all 500 cars like that. I mean, you can literally strip the cars to a skeleton in the showroom.

No, nothing to do with pride in their work. If they had that level of pride in their work they wouldn't export the modelling to asian countries for it to be done, despite the lower level of quality control there. Unlike Polyphony Digital who do all the modelling on site to ensure the synonymous with Gran Turismo accuracy and quality of the models. They also wouldn't force a permanent driving aid on their games only to slap on the tag 'simulator' as if a joke. Pride has nothing to do with it, only money.

That said this looks a big step up from forza 3 :) Hopefully we'll get this LOD models during races, and not just in photomode.

No. Turn 10 laughs at the way Poly handled GT5 in that way. It'll be 100% across the board.

Personally, being a petrol head, I'd much prefer Turn 10 put that kind of effort and care into their modelling. But casual gamers couldn't tell the difference, I suppose.

Jalopnik says every car has been rerendered and each car has over 1 million polygons or twice as much as GT5.

Car List and Feature List so far:

Gosh, we're still using the polygon count as a measure of quality these days?

As some are using number of car ... :)
Commented on 2011-06-07 08:05:20
I don't believe we are getting 500 cars with that level of quality........it just can't be. I'll believe it when I see it, or when I hear something reassuring of this from Greenawalt or similar.

With that said, even if older models just get touched up it'll just look unbelievable, I'm convinced that regardless of the car model situation, this will be the best looking racing game of all time when it comes out.

I have seen the trailer, I also know those are 1080p with massive amounts of AA. I also have seen FM2 AND 3 pre-release media, I also own FM2 and 3, I know the disparity between what they show and what we get. They've caught me twice, not a third time. Not till I see someone sit down and play the damn thing with a direct feed.

Any idea if Autovista is kinect only ? Game looks effing amazing
Commented on 2011-06-07 16:54:20
Real 1080p gameplay at decent speed? Will the kinect stuff affect the performarnce for a non/kinetic user?

The cars in FM3 were already made loaded with crazy detail, they just ran a lower "rez" model during races. It was mostly the lighting and shaders being weak anyway, and those do seem to have been addressed...

The big question is how many discs and how much hard drive space for install..

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @Moonwalker: That's not a fair comparison. You show an absolute in-game compared to a photo of a TV screen. If I take a picture of my tv... (10 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Recore difference is huge. (32 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I made a thread here showing the differences, it can def be seen: [url] (55 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: In a way you can show the difference. I made a few pics today of Forza 7 demo, Recore and Gears 4 and you can definitely see what you're missing out on wirh SDR. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (5 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (14 Hours ago)
