A bunch of fun facsimiles of old racing games.
Forza 6 commercial drives through the history of the racing genre
@believer258: I thought they were giving a shout-out to Ridge Racer.
Now that I think about it, they had to have worked with Namco for this commercial, right? There's no way they could get away with that close a parody of both RR and Pole Position.
Well when one of the cars in the Ridge Racer section is sideways, you totally see the word "SOLVALOU" down the side of the car, which is one of the manufacturers from the Ridge Racer universe, but is also the name of the ship from Xevious (and the title of a later game set in that series) so it's certainly possible that some deal was made.
Anyway, cute ad!
Xbox have put up a video explaining all the references. It's a pretty weird thing for them to put out, but to be fair I hadn't picked up on all the references so it's nice for them to explain it all the way through, I guess.
PS: He mentions the PlayStation twice by name! Like he didn't have to, but he does it anyway. Weird, weird.
