They had a booth with this game set up at Eurogamer and it had been shoved in the corner and seemed to be largely ignored by most of the people there. I walked past it several times over the course of the two days I was there and there was always a console free and no queue to play. Seems weird considering the level of hype for this game. Maybe the marketing just hasn't kicked in properly yet?

Europe/UK is Gran Turismo territory.

Europe and UK are more Sony territory than GT, If Forza was on PS3 it would sell similar to GT, But in the U.K 360 has been the best selling console this year, IMO Forza is the better racing sim and I am a huge fan of GT but I am a fan of cars also and Forza 3 was just a better racing game IMO of course.

A lot of my friends were waiting on GT5 and while waiting they played Forza but were expecting GT5 to come out and be amazing like I was and while it was a good game we all realised forza 3 was better and so that became the main racing title we play, Of course this is just a tiny fraction of gamers but from my experience Forza is quickly being recognized as the best racing sim on consoles in the U.K.

If only I could use my driving force GT on the xbox.

Indeed.

I really loved Forza 3, but didn't play a ton of it for some reason. I should fix that issue sometime soon.

@Devil240Z: as long as you dont use opponents for brakes , im sure no one will mind. ;)

@PsEG: a club filter for the leaderboard would be pretty awesome too.

Looks and sounds great, but I still think theres just too few tracks in Forza.. It seems they did not add that many new tracks and Im afraid the game gets old too fast because of the lack of variety. Still getting the game day 1.

There are things I love about Forza, but the actual racing just doesn't do much for me. Same can be said for Gran Turismo, though Forza is a much better package then GT. Still, I'll probably end up picking it up.

@Tondo
I think it was Jeff's point that this isn't the finished build and that he only had a couple hours.  Just because he didn't mention anything about the number of tracks doesn't mean there won't be more than Forza 4.  In fact its a little silly to think there wouldn't be.

I used to be way into car sims, but in like the last 5 years I haven't touched a single one.

I love Jeremy Clarkson! Buying the game just for that.

It looks great, but just imagine what the Forza series could look like if the system had more than 512MB RAM.

Forza 3 was kinda disappointing to me after Forza 2 for some reason. Probably because I got a lot of the bonus cars right away that messed the career up. But after seeing the first part of the intro with Jeremy Clarkson, I went a pre-ordered the collector's edition. This time I won't get the pre-order cars in game right away :)

I'd be willing to bet Forza 4 is still using some of same proportionally incorrect models from Forza 1.

They did it in Forza 3.

Hell, I'd be willing to bet you still can't paint the bumper on the Civic.

If there's anything Turn 10 should be raked over the coals for, it's recycling the same old over and over and slapping a new number on it and sending it out the door.

It looks good but after a game like Driver SF, does just driving around a track for laps do it for anyone anymore?

very interesting point. games like need for speed and burnout dodged the idea of straight laps perse. i guess this is really to challenge Sony with its Gran Turismo series anymore.

Does Dubstep improve game-play quality like in Trackmania?

Wondering how big of a difference the new set of wheels make when playing....
