Forza 3 exclusive video and images

Forza 3 exclusive video and images

This week end, Paris gets its own game show called "le festival du jeu vidéo". Hopefully, the press was allowed in today so we took our good old camera and went there to bring you back some footage of the upcoming games of 2009 and 2010. Let's start with Forza Motorsport 3 and another 60 fps video in cockpit view. The track is still El Camino and I've had problems to drive properly with the Fanatec wheel - to me it needed some tweaking in the option menu but maybe I'm just really bad - but it's still worth a look.

Update: Added the replay of the same race, not encoded as well as usual due to an utter lack of free time here.

looks great in motion.. impressed with the mirror reflection detail which most racing games always seem to fall short on.

But comeon microsoft, its been awhile since E3..time to show a new track in motion

at least when we DO play the game, the tracks will all be suprises :P Don't worry, when the demo comes out, I'm sure we will get to drive this same track we've seen a million times...

We do, it's been announced. ;)

This looks incredible. The last batch of pics was pretty disappointing, and had some graphic glitches. Nice exclusive video, looking great.

Nice job Gamersyde. Happy that a site which knows how to handle a decent capture has got their hands on the newer build of the game.

/thumbs up

All we need now is for MS to give you some direct feed capture time.

This is the best vid i have seen of Forza 3 so far, this game is gorgeous in motion! I can imagine how it will look on my tv, can't wait for the 24th.

Thats like the combining of some of the best tarmac textures ina a game of this kind, with some of the worts stone textures that would make a N64 laugh.
I know all tracks ca't be at the same exact texture quality, but why take pictures in that shitty part of the track?

Absolutely brilliant video Blim, thanks!!! There almost Zero aliasing in the game, I can only see a little bit on the egde of the bonnet, it just looks amazing in motion, even better than it does in screens :D

Also, these are the best screens from the batch...

Hmm, 2 new 430 GTs. Which means the only new Ferrari added is the California. A bit bummed that the GTO Evoluzione and Daytona didn't make it in. Still a great list of Ferraris by any standard. But still, at least a paintable 360 GT would have been nice instead of those additonal 430's.

Wow this game looks sick in motion.
Commented on 2009-09-18 03:19:32
seriously, this game has looked great from the geat go, but that vid was just amazing, ESPECIALLY when he turn that first corner....just breath taking. Plus all the content and customisation in this game, its unreal.

The game looks better than these screenshots, I am starting to think that Turn 10 releasing sub par screenshots is done on purpose in order to lower expectations, and thus, deliver a 'knock out punch' when we actually see the real thing - it's a marketing ploy used in order to get the desired OMG! response from people, who will in turn spread the word, not a bad technique.

Really? What about all the people who might have seen early stuff and thought this is crap? They have to work hard to win back all those people, some of whom might have just shut off their radar on this game altogether. Not saying this actually happened, I just think its a big risk/payoff ratio that you suggest.

BTW, really funny to compare the comments on this post to the last Forza (Ferrari !) post. It makes me think that they touched these up, or released them specifically because they were better shots then the ones we got earlier. T10 saw this site and said, "Holy sh*t, we'd better get some really good shots to this site cuz people are bitching up and down about the shaders and the quality of the shots!"

A valid point, and of course I don't know for sure only Turn 10 does. But nevertheless this IS a method of advertising that is used they use this to do exactly what it is doing - creating buzz, a kind of to and frow, back and forth way of keeping people interested is low quality/hight quality, kind of like a hypnotist that is ABSOLUTELY having the desired effect. And no I do not think it will have much of an impact, those that were interested before will remain interested now, and those who are truly not going to buy the game because of low quality screenshots would be infinitesimal. Risk to benefit ratio is more than acceptable, and makes people talk, that will create more interest to convert to sales.

Turn 10 does not touch up pictures. These pictures are not the final build and were taken while the builds were coming together. So the more recent screenshots are released the newer the build. I like how you think these pictures were all taken in a day your a hilarious guy.

Che Chou took these pictures weeks upon weeks ago as proved in posts his made commenting about taking pictures for the big Ferrari Reveal.

Clutching at straws slightly.

It looks good, end-of.

That black 430 CS looks sick! They even modelled the little rivets holding the perspex windows together. I haven't checked out the video, at work so would look a tad obvious, but man, I love this site! Thanks guys!

Thats not the complete Ferrari list.
Turn 10 said that there will be 29 different Ferraris, and not all are shown by now.
There are sill 3 or 4 Ferraris to be shown.

Bad workman always blames his tools!

:D

It looked like the deadzone needed adjusting (a bit too twitchy), but wow! Took the plunge and watched the damned vid anyway, It looks fucking awesome!

Thanks Driftwood. That should keep the nay-sayers away for a bit!
