No nightvision goggles??? ;-)

Can't say I like the custom R8 design. I wonder how much this CE will set us back moneywise.
If I can get it cheap I might consider this version otherwise normal version for me.

like I always say, you people don't need to grab all "lmiited, lol" versions. Only buy the ones that are 10 bucks more than the standard and offer someting substancial.
Last one I recall, was Bioshock that offered a Big Daddy Statue for just a little more money, and thats it, all other games collector's editions were just rip-offs.

Check out This!!, The level of detail on that DBS is mind blowing and the chrome effect looks perfect!

Can someone officially state that these are in-game screenshots? The resolution is incredibly high. Is Forza 3 a native 1080p game?
Commented on 2009-07-27 19:46:28
Am I the only one pissed that these 5 cars are limited edition only? They just HAD to pick the best sports cars available. What's also great is that we'll have them on a normal version as well (since they somehow have to be use able online), we just can't drive them. Nice, I'm cancelling my preorder...

Looking beautiful as usual and in pic#1 they're finally starting to add in some spectators to the stands. Nice!
Commented on 2009-07-27 20:35:31
Is it only the decals that are limited edition, or the cars as well. If it's the decals, then I couldn't give a shit. I can make my own and better.

Seriously, what is so funny about that question? Explain please.
Commented on 2009-07-27 20:46:55
The Lamborgini looks terrible in these shots! Damn awfull...

This is probably the first batch of shots I've seen that look worse than actual gameplay vids...

Can't see why not, it'll be a bloody GAME or HMV exclusive, mind you!

Oh, and if there's a Alfa 159 in the game, cue the James Bond chase with a DBS in tow!
Commented on 2009-07-27 21:04:40
Hmm, not sure if I be bothered with this special edition, I think I save extra cash for the modern warfare 2 LE....

The res is 720p so i believe it's in-game.

Yeah, 720p 4xAA. Screens look good, just wish they would use ingame and not bullshot ultra res screens

These are screenshots are from photomode. They've implemented a new Photomode that can render in 1080p (like HALO 3).

Again, these are photomode screenshots, not promo shots!!! Nobody want's photomode screenshots with aliasing and a low resolution. Photomode screenshots have to look like porn.

True, these screens are 100% bullshots, NO "console game" has that much of anti aliasing, that also gose for NGS2.

and you know whats so funny, this guy from GS "BlimBlim" said that NGS 2 are bullshots, but this are not LOL, yeah right.

Hey "MR.BlimBlim", both games (Forza3 and NGS2) use bullshots screens.

Opposite feelings for me. With this many cars already on the disc it just makes any extras totally pointless. Sure, they're decent... but we've got tonnes already. Screw paying for more when you're spoiled for choice as it is.

You just quoted someone who said they're bullshots... telling him exactly what he just said.

Thanks, that was the answer I was waiting for. So the ingame resolution will be 720p without AA if I understand correctly. Seems more likely.

As for photomode screens: I don't care for them at all. I want to see in-game screenshots, not enhanced stills.

He said these were bullshots on one of the past 100 Forza 3 posts. I can't remember which one though. Forzasyde lulz.

No, the game will have AA, although it won't be this high.

And these are in-game shots, just not gameplay shots. Photo mode is a part of the game.

For an approximation of what the gameplay will look like, pick any gameplay clip released so far and go to the stills gallery here at Gamersyde (or just watch the video, duh). Unfortunately, all we have at the moment are off-screen recordings, no direct feed gameplay videos have been released so far.

ha ha, I love the fact that Turn10 step up its shit, and makes a visually stunning game that people become desperate finding why is that it looks so good.
