Xbox 360

The new track for Forza Motorsport 2 was released yesterday, with a reduced price of 400p. While I have yet to try it myself, people seem to agree on that it's a great track. Che and the Turn10 guys has of course released an extensive track guide of the new map, Twin Ring Motegi, which can be read on the official website. And inside you'll find a video showing some of the track, with more videos available in their track guide.

400MSP? And that's the REDUCED price? Don't get me wrong, Motegi is a good track, but this is just another example of MS nickel and diming you to death. For $5 I'd expect to get at least 2-3 tracks and maybe a few cars. (Yes, I know Motegi has 4 variations, but it's the same area essentially.)

Yeah, it's certainly worse than $9 for an old track in Motorstorm...

I see you're trying to make this into a console war thread. My point was that MS likes to - nickel and dime - you. $50 a year for a service which can be free, several bucks a pop for stupid shit like avatars and wallpapers, and then on top of it all they charge you $5 (originally $8) for one track in just one of their games.

The price you have to pay for a quality service.

The new track isn't that great tbh... I wish they brought back the uphill tracks from Japan, the course to course circuits and just all the cool things that was in the first game - oh and give us proper decent TV broadcast replay angles...

I've been playing GT5 Prologue demo and after playing i realised just how incredible it is, sure it hasn't damage physics, but what it does have is the best racing experience i have encountered ever - the physics, the models of the car are just TOP banana.

I lost my faith in GT series after number 3, but just checking out the demo alone has restored my faith totally back in the series. Turn 10 and any other racing devs had better start to buckle up and take note if they intend to rival GT5, include: Dashboard views, decent replay tv angles, an assortment of challenging circuits n tracks as well as rallying stages, different terrains, mud, gravel etc - as well as a combination of weather conditions (PGR4)...

Btw, another big coup for PD (Polyphony digital), is the news announced earlier this week that GT5 will tie in nicely with popular british motoring show TOP GEAR - players will be able to download the tracks featured in the series and are able to compete with the celebrities/the Stig's best times! :)

Hahaha, come on, 'GT' and 'physics' don't belong in the same sentence.

Wow you really like PS3. I wonder why you'd want to bring up GT in a Forza news thread.

Sure you want to blow your cover already?

They must be joking with the price and how short that track is. The game is still hands down the best racing simulation on any console but please dont undermine it with stunts like this Turn10!

If Forza3 doesnt have several F1 circuits it will be a no buy. The engine is superb, we just need something to race on.

PGR=Rain)4
Sorry to say but the weather conditions killed the PGR series in my eyes. It needs alot of tweaking to make it work, like no rain puddles in EVERY CORNER.

The worst PGR to date (looks cool, plays like sh*t).
