Seriously, i don't understand why the engine on that audi look white, wtf is that? is that hard to make some car modeling?

Funny that the first (fantasy) track they showed is probably the (much) better loking one of them all. I hope the undisclosed ones are as good loking as that one, don't care if they are real or not.

@fatso: grasping @ straws.

awesome trailer, ending a bit different than the one uploaded on youtube. Still great though, diesel in the r10 actually sounds somewhat like it. Can't wait for the demo either.

You can see at the start of the intro, that the engine is silver/grey aluminium. Then as the strong sunlight hits it, it's absorbed into a white glow, briefly, thanks to HDR, before becoming silvery grey again. Kinda like real life really.

It is not:

That said I think in other screenshots you see that the engine is also not white in FM3. I guess it’s just an overdone reflection.

Looks fantastic, can't wait for this one.

Ok, just the shots I had looked up it looked more white than that, then again, they looked to be promo shots, and didnt have a closeup of the engine bay.

Nope, the first time I will watch this is on Octobre 23th. :P

The music reminds me of Mass Effects' level up sound xP

Absolutely fantastic looking game. It may have a different graphical style to GT, but it certainly does not mean it's below it. Certainly, the detail is second to none IMO.

Now this is a good intro. Good showcase of the diversity in cars, tracks and game modes. Im absolutely psyched about Forza 3. Seems like it was announced yesterday. Sure we heard the rumors, but we didn't actually get to see anything on Forza until E3, and that was only a few months ago.
Commented on 2009-09-11 21:30:34
Beautiful, 100% Forza style ^_^

A little correction, it turns out this is not replay footage, it's basically gameplay footage. According to Che:

FUN FACT: The entire intro video with the Challenger taking off at the end was captured in-game and not during replay. Basically, we detached the camera from the back of the car in 3rd person view and scripted it to do flybys and choreographed moves. These are essentially in-game graphics with no added AA, etc. We had considered doing a CG rendered intro video but felt confident that the game looked good enough to just do it all in-game in real-time.

Oh nice so they have ALMS too!
Commented on 2009-09-11 23:04:22
it looks white here (though its also just because of light reflection) so its all good and everybody be happy :)

Looks so much better than the compressed gameplay vid from yesterday. o_0

I can't wait to see this game running on my TV.
Commented on 2009-09-12 00:44:40

Commented on 2009-09-12 02:29:54
