GSY Retro Xbox

This year the Forza Motorsport franchise turns 10, an opportunity for us to offer you some videos of the first Forza released on Xbox in 2005, just before the sixth game comes out. To capture te game we used the Xbox 360's backward compatibility, set to 640x480 because the European version of the game forced 50Hz, causing the game to run at 25 FPS instead of 30.

Microsoft released the quite nice looking video intro of Forza. Hopefully it's just a way to wait for the final review version later this week, with lots of high quality videos...

Xbox

Popular Science did a study with 2 pilots to check if Forza Motorsport was as true to life as Microsoft claimed it to be. This video shows how they did the testing and also the results. Not too bad, not too bad at all.
Update : The video is buggy, I'm reencoding it right now.
Update 2: Corrected version now online.

Xbox

I've just been sent this short Forza video from a german tv show (I think). I think this is the first time the split screen mode of the game is shown on a video.

Xbox

Microsoft keeps updating the japanese Forza web site with new images. This week it's the Maple Valley track's turn with these 5 images.

Xbox

Gullie is back ! After his excellent video from the Game Convention in Leipzig last summer, Gullie had just disappeared. Well, no worries as he just sent me this excellent Forza video preview from Motors TV.

Xbox

Microsoft once again updated the japanese official Forza site with these 5 new images of Laguna Seca. Certainly not the best track to use as a visual showcase of the game.

Xbox

The japanese are lucky, since they have the only official Fora site that's ever been updated in months. This time here are 5 images of the Fujimi Kaido track. Something that's I'm will please the Initial D fans like me :)

Xbox

Microsoft put online these 5 images of Forza presenting the Tokyo by night track. Very nice, except for the 2d crowd...

Xbox

Microsoft put online these 9 images of the Tsukuba track in Japan. I'm sure some will find things to nitpick on, but for me it looks really good.

    Sdarts I loved this game, you can play with different characters, each with their own abilities. You had a dash, that was basically like flying - Really cool mechanic. Squaresoft at its best. (5 Days ago)

    Sdarts But got to a place where I couldn't progress further, because I didn't understand Japanese - before 2000, I wanna say. Really liked it and still remember it randomly sometimes. (5 Days ago)

    Sdarts And then later their American versions. There was this Japanese game only released in Japan, I think it was from Squaresoft, the game was quite cool and I went very far in it. (5 Days ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts @nostradamus: Yes, PSX, N64 & Sega Saturn as well. Those days, I played a lot of imported games. I believe I played Final Fantasy 8 around 6 months before the US release. Tenchu 1 & 2 in Japanese. (5 Days ago)
