In Forza Motorsport, unicorns are unique cars that cannot be bought in the career’s “Buy Car” area. They can only be added to your career garage (and thus upgraded and customized) through the Auction House or as gifts from the Community team. These cars cannot be driven from the common garage that is found in “Quick Race,” “Free Play,” “Split Screen” and “Multiplayer.” They are called unicorns because they are exceedingly rare (it’s a somewhat common video game design term for rare or random items).

Microsoft simply wants people to buy a kinect, that is why they have it say "BETTER WITH KINECT" on the cover of the game. They know from showing this game at E3, that people will go out and buy a kinect, but also because there's a bigger title coming out next year called "KINECT STAR WARS" Simply if you don't have one or can't afford one ask for one for Christmas, or your birthday. Btw I hope everyone knows but the Fall Dashboard update is supposed to be all about kinect.

I think the ach list is great!
exept there are 3 cheevos that cut down the great part
Kinect - i think this is crap, i own a kinect but im talking about they who dont, if they want 1000 they have to pay microsoft many dollars just for that
unicorn - oh my, really? those are rare as fuck and thousands will be bidding for them
Forza 3 - i own forza 3, but i think its lame that those who dont have it miss out on this one

Great list, but those 3 make it a 7/10 list

kinect- all you have to do is start the race and the ach pops
unicorn- sure 1000's are bidding now, the game just came out, wait a few months when the game dies down a bit and it will be easier to get one
forza 3- you can pick that game up for a mere $10-15 now, and i believe there is a trick to getting the ach if you dont have the game

How appropriate these two comments showed up next to each other. I agree with the The Reaper, though. Video games are entertainment, always have been. The points are worthless, bragging rights only. I do try to 1000GS most games I get so I can know that I've fully explored everything I can - but if I can't get them all, oh well.

What really annoys me about all of the complaining is the sense of entitlement people have, like they are owed 1000GS on every game. Should we all complain because we can't get 1000GS in Guitar Hero or Rock Band unless we buy the instruments? Hell, why not complain that you actually have to buy a 360 to get any of the points for a game you bought?

I realize that this site is about getting achievements, and helping others do the same. To that end, I accept that people will get upset and rant here because in their opinion something sucks. But if you're going to deny yourself the fun of playing an amazing racing game over a minor achievement that you don't like, please don't ever call yourself a gamer, because you're not. I think the proper term would be more like 'achievement whore.'

Just my $0.02 . . . feel free to provide to provide change.

Hope there is a trick or else I'm not buying this game, played through forza 3 unlocked all achievements and waited until earlier this year to erase my save file cause nobody said to save it. Bioware said to save your mass effect 1 saves for ME2 well in advance but didnt hear about this one until the achievement list was revealed. screw you

I think I'm going to have to find a used copy of Forza 3 just to get that cheevo.... really hurts though because I don't really want to spend the money for 15 points.

Why would you delete a save in the first place? They take little to no space on your HDD anyway. You could have at least transfered it to a USB.

I think i'm going to have to settle for less than the full 1000 for this game, no way i'm spending $150 for a 5g kinect achievement but Forza is one of those games i don't care about the full 1000, i'm having to much fun

If nobody complains about this stuff, and I don't think most will, then I'd expect to see it in many more games from MS-owned developers. It's almost impossible to own a "complete edition" of many current triple-a titles because of vendor exclusive content, and it is nasty to see completion heading down the same path.
When game companies' games go gold, they begin work on both their next game and DLC to keep their workforce busy. They aren't withholding content from the game, most Launch Day DLC is content that wasn't quite finished or fully polished when the games go gold so they work on that between Gold and Launch and will most likely include it for free with the a new game. GOW Launch Day Skins were what their artists spent their time doing between Gold and Launch while they waited for DLC to get to a point where their skills would be needed, or in their free time. Some companies may be withholding content due to contractual obligations for pre-order content from their publishers (who are the main cause of Launch Day DLC and Pre-Order Content).

Same. Standard for me.

For the Forza 3 achievement, can I just buy/borrow the game, create a save, win a couple races and import the first car I buy, for the achievement?

yes you will get the achievemnet for completing the years, but you wont get any experience or affinity for it. but theres an easy way to get those up fast if you go to the forum page and look at the 100k and 50k xp forum. shows an easy way to get your driver and affinity up fast

Can't believe how many people are throwing a tantrum like a 5 year old about achievements, i'm looking forward to seeing the new and improved car graphics and gameplay, not to mention the autovista mode and top gear track.

So there will be 1 achievement i know i will never unlock. But it has been said before, that you do not need to buy a kinect to experience what the game has on offer. and before anyone says anything about the kinect intergrated gameplay, remember no one was bitching about this before the achievement list was revealed.

Turn 10 is merely open to new ideas by intergrating the kinect and if you believe what Dan Greenawalt says, kinect is actually making the graphics better so i am more than happy to sacrifice 5 lousy points for a better looking game but hey if the only thing people care about with video games these days is posting in their sig how many 1000/1000 games they have completed then pick up a few disney games next time your out and leave the adult games to the adults.
I agree 100%, everyone who is so uptight about the "5g Kinect" achievement needs to just shut up. Forza is just one of those games where it's fun to play, not sit around wasting your life over achievements.
