Use Kinect to drive any car in Free Play.

You DO need the Kinect for this achievement, luckily enough my sisterhad  a Kinect... if you are not as fortunate you may have to bring your gamertag and save with you to a friend's house and use their Kinect, or just buy one for the achievement... which is a bit like overkill if you ask us. For the achievement, simply use Kinect to steer the car in Free Play... then never use it with the game again.

personally im quite happy with the 995g but if i really want to get that 5g i could always buy a pre-owned kinect device and i might aswell get a pre-owned copy of forza 4 just as an extra fuck you to M$ and turn10. Hell i don't want to lose money on someone else's stupid idea do i.

This isn't allowed surely? M$ own rules state even game must have 1000G without having to pay extra and here we are with them trying to make people shell out £100 for a 5g achievement! I love racing games and Forza but i'm seriously considering NOT buying this if it's going to be an attempt to sell Kinect, I'm not 10 years old for fecks sake!

Saturday, August 27, 2011 @ 08:22:26 AM

For everyone crying "This isn't allowed! They're not allowed to do achievements that require you to buy extra stuff!!"...

That only applies to DLC, not hardware. The standard 1000GS can't include any premium DLC.

As for the standard whining, get over it. The Kinect features are part of the game so it would be stupid of them not to have at least one achievement tied to them.

I'm sure this will annoy many a person, like the old Fable 2 'You have to have pub games to get the achievement' scandal back in the day.
I agree though. Forza's one of MS's pivotal core games, being the Xbox's Gran Turismo. It should stay core. The best experience for a racing game is a racing wheel, not waving your arms around at a little camera.

Saturday, August 27, 2011 @ 02:19:44 PM

Is this achievement really about making money (selling Kinect units) or more about forcing us to at least try out the motion-controlled driving? I can imagine that a lot of time (and payroll dollars) was spent by the developers to get Kinect-functionality into the game. I own a Kinect and had no intentions of using it to drive in Forza 4. Now, with the inclusion of this achievement, I will use it. Mission accomplished, Turn 10/Microsoft.

Saturday, August 27, 2011 @ 04:40:42 PM

Hardcore Forza fans are probably already looking at Kinect for the head tracking feature. One that holds a lot of appeal to steering wheel users, who do not have the luxury of a right analogue stick.
Its pretty much the sole reason why I bought a Kinect.

This isn't anything new though.
Has everyone forgot that Rainbow 6 Vegas, Vegas 2 and Raving Rabbids all had achievements that required the Xbox Live Vision Camera?

On the plus side, the game doesn't have any multiplayer achievements.

@55 Glad to see SOMEONE is just accepting that they won't get this, instead of whining and saying they won't buy the game because of it (even though they most likely will).

I own a Kinect, and I was thinking this game would be like Mass Effect 3, just adding a couple extra features that don't really add to the game. Driving with Kinect may be fun since this is meant to be a real game compared to sonic, joy ride, etc.

@56, 57 and others:
Stop whining about people who are so disappointed and disgusted about M$ aggressive marketing strategy that they decided not to buy the game. Forza 4 is a game which DOES NOT NEED Kinect support. You know what? Why did they not make it really an achievement. Like win a season with Kinect playing on the hardest difficulty. What would you say then? This achievement is as easy as switching the lights on. Only you need a stupid £100 controller which wasn't as successful as they thought it would be. Whining... my ass.

Well, as I said before, guess I am gonna save myself $60 this year, cuz I am not paying $100 dollars more for something that will gather dust and only get used maybe twice a year.
The fact that not having Kinect is going to stop me from getting full GS means it is gonna stop me from getting the game.
Oh, and for those who played Forza 3, the list is pretty much the same. The kinect achievement replaced the "Interior" achievement (cockpit view).

And, @60, Gamestop doesn't do the guarantee on systems or peripherals (at least, the one I go to doesn't).

Comment #65 by trent82
Sunday, August 28, 2011 @ 06:11:58 AM

I expect a lot of Microsoft games to have tacked on Kinect achievements going forward. The thing that is frustrating about this is that it isn't just about the money...for a lot of people, you just don't have the right setup to use Kinect. In my gaming area, when I briefly borrowed a Kinect, I simply could not back up far enough for it to see my legs and feet.

Comment #68 by Mcmax3000
Sunday, August 28, 2011 @ 09:43:00 AM

For anyone that is whining, if you want to be even remotely taken seriously, stop trying to claim that Kinect sales are poor. They sold over 10 Million sensors in like two months.

Kinect sales have been pretty damn strong.

Forza has always put in achievements that are tied to new features so that people try them out. That's all this is. The amount of Kinect units that they will sell because of this achievement is probably a two digit number at best. Microsoft wouldn't waste their time forcing Turn 10 to put this in.

Comment #69 by alklein35
Sunday, August 28, 2011 @ 09:58:01 AM

@61 Didn't do as well as they expected? You do know it holds the record for fastest selling consumer electronic of all time right? It's continued to do amazing. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it doesn't do well, or is only for little kids, it does well and people need to realize that. Pretending it's a bad product doesn't make it one. Like 68 said, part of this achievement is just to get people to try out the new feature.

@66 How are you being pressured? Because of a number? That's not being pressured, that's your own retarded ego that demands a perfect number, and if you claim it's anything other than you wanting to get every achievement, that's a bunch of BS. And you probably will still get this anyways, just like the majority of people who say they won't because of the K

I think the only people that have the right to whine are:

-People who have given Kinect a fair shot and don't like it (I love Kinect, but not everyone has too), AND they would actually get 995gs on the game, and Kinect is blocking them from getting the full 1000. Everyone is whining and moaning about a 5gs achievement, but be honest with yourselves, were you going to get 995 in this game? I bet some of you never played 2 or 3 even...

@68 and 69: Fair enough. Then you also know that there are more than 50 million Xbox consoles all over the world. That means that in best case scenario, there are a Kinect on every fifth. M$ being the greediest company ever (not official Guiness record or anything, just a fact) want a Kinect or two on all of them...
I still hate being pushed by M$ marketing strategy and I am not buying this game. I might be a drop in the ocean but if it carries on like this, I will just sell my Xbox too. And yes, I know yoou wouldn't miss me, I wouldn't miss you too. Fullstop.

Comment #76 by alklein35
Sunday, August 28, 2011 @ 03:56:37 PM

@75 My question is, why does this one achievement affect your purchase of the game, and why would it put you any closer to selling the system? Of course they want a Kinect on every system, they make money off it. Every company in the world would like to have their product in every house, if they don't, they're too stupid to run a business. If the game itself was to be a great game, why wouldn't you buy it because of that? Instead of going off a number, play it based on whether you enjoy the game.

I agree with 73 for the most part, the only people who have a good reason to complain are the ones who have used the Kinect and didn't like it. But even they don't really have a reason to complain about an achievement and not buy the game. Is Microsoft forcing you in any way shape or form to us

Comment #77 by alklein35
Sunday, August 28, 2011 @ 03:57:42 PM

to use the Kinect and get this achievement? No they're not, regardless of how you think. Do you get anything from gamerscore that is necessary for something? Hell, do you get anything from gamerscore at all? No, so they aren't forcing you to get this achievement at all. Instead of bitching, you should just sell your 360 right now, don't switch to a PS3, and only play video games that have no type of achievements, trophies, or cumulative score whatsoever because maybe then you'll realize the actual purpose of games.

Monday, August 29, 2011 @ 03:22:04 AM

To those trying to be optimistic about this, how many of you have played Joy Ride using a Kinect? I have and it was truly awful. There is nothing in place to keep your hands in the right position, so they will drift together and apart because your focus is on the screen. This causes all sorts of problems. I'm not sure if you can use an empty Wii Wheel to keep you hands in place, but that might be your best bet. I have no doubt that Forza 4 will be a better game than Joy Ride, but I can see the same Kinect-related problems occuring.

The real frustration with an achievement like this is that the only time you will likely try to use Kinect with this game will be to knock out this achievement. While doing so, you will realize how stupid it is, and you will never do it again. I predic

I understand the reasons for putting the achievement in, but since I do not own Kinect and have no intention of buying it in the future, I remain bias, and shall proclaim those involved in putting this achievement in are in fact, bellends!

I shall still buy the game, as its one I want, and will be great regardless of one annoying achievement, especially with my racing wheel.

Comment #83 by Siddy
Monday, August 29, 2011 @ 11:02:03 AM

@73 you hit it on the head. How many here are going to be playing this game long enought to even get to 995G when your got achievements like "Bucket List." Thats hours of racing, at least over 80+ hours because of the endurance races and cars that might be to hard to handle.

"Unicorn Hunter" is another pain because a Unicorn cars can go in to the billions just to buy one. Unless you find a money glitch or your good artist that will take a lot of time as well.

So I find it hard to beleave the ones that are not buying this because of not being able to get 5G are going to put the time in to get the other 995G.

Comment #84 by FatalFlaw810
Monday, August 29, 2011 @ 01:58:09 PM

Some people cry way too much..I realize this is an achievement site but come on. It's only ONE achievement for 5G and as everyone else said the people who are whining probably won't get 995 because this game will require a lot of playtime. I know it took forever to 1000g Forza 3. The fact is I'm still getting this game because I know I'm going to enjoy it and I know it will be fun for any racing/car enthusiast fan. I hate when people think they're forced into buying Kinect just because of one silly achievement.

Caring about getting all the achievements is one thing, but not buying a game simply because you won't be able to get all the achievements is stupid as hell. That means that you were only buying the game for the achievements to begin with and not for the actual game, or you are a Forza fan but won't buy the game simply because of one achievement. Both are absolutely pathetic.

Comment #92 by DragonusDarque
Monday, August 29, 2011 @ 07:18:11 PM

I know I would get the other 995g (I almost have Forza 3 cleared - only missing 2), but I am medically unable to use Kinect, being unable to stand long enough to play a game. I know you are sitting for Forza 4, but I am not gonna pay $100 for something I can only use on a few things. Most of the Kinect games require you to stand to play, which I cannot do, so I would never be able to play 95% of the games out there for Kinecrt.
Microsoft seems to think all gamers are in perfect health and able to physically do anything, which I can assure you is not true.
If I could try Kinect, I would. And, it's not the only reason I am skipping Forza 4, but if I ever do play it, it will probably just be a weekend, just for the experience.

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 01:58:12 PM

@92 I'm confused. I get that you're medically unable to use Kinect, but how does that mean that it makes sense to bitch about needing it to get 5g? It's still stupid, no matter what your reason is. The fact is you're whining about 5 points in something that have no real world value. You may like score - yes, you may like completion percentages - yes, but I think even the most diehard GS whores would say that GS isn't actually important in real life, so why is it such a big deal about 1 achievement? Or any for that matter

@92: pretty sure bet that driving a car with Kinect can be done with some mild gestures from the hands and maybe "some" movement from your feet, while sitting, to make up for throttle & brakes. Even so, if you're really that unable to move around (which makes for a very good point of Microsoft thinking all gamers are 100% physically able), it would'nt be too hard to ask a friend or family-member to drive the car for you?

@94: "It's still stupid, no matter what your reason is". Great to read your ignorance; makes me wonder what you would do if you would be physically unable to do certain things on an activity you really like to do, regardless if it's playing a game, playing basketball or having sex. Maybe think about things you love to do but would be unable to in the near future... :s 9

For all of you saying "quit your whining" , "stop complainin faggets"...

You WILL start complain once they make a game that youre only gonna be able to play,complete and gain achievements once you have "A GIANT ROBOT WITH A STEERING WHEEL, A LASER PISTOL HAND AND A HEAD WITH CAMERAS IN HIS EYES FOR THE BARGAIN PRICE OF 2,000 $"


Once they made a game for DLC or Online play only...

Comment #99 by alklein35
Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 08:02:04 PM

@98 No, because I realize that as much as like gamerscore and achievements, they have no real value and the fact that I can't get them doesn't bother me. I don't care that I only partially completed 1 vs 100, don't care that I can't 100% my Warlords. I don't buy games for achievements, I buy to play the damn game, something that noone seems to do anymore. If they made a game that I flatout couldn't play at all for medical reasons, yea I'd be pissed, but unless it was a common illness (like not being able to use Kinect, I would call that common) I wouldn't hold it against the devs. Noones being prevented from playing this game by them adding the achievement, they just can't get 5g. Whoopdie-motherfucking-doo.

On a semi-related note. If I could get a giant robot with a steering wheel, las

I think some people should just buy the game for the game itself.
Not buying it to look cool by having 1000G on it. Why moan about
a stupid 5G achievement when most people probably didn't get
the 'Drift Lap' achievement on Forza 3. Also how many people will
be dedicated to do 10 years in Season play or have enough money
to own the 5 most expensive cars in the game? I doubt most will get
1000/1000 even without Kinect. So just shut up and play it for fun :)

@ 103 - I think I would be less annoyed if it was a 100G achievement. 5 is just so close to finished that its even more frustrating. At least they were kind enough not to make it an odd number like 1G. Can keep the 5/0 finish number.... I know, i one of 'those' people, but I had a GS total that doesnt end in a 5 or 0. LOL! :S

I've had a complete u-turn on this as a matter of fact... Turn 10 spent time developing the engine, it's only right they would want people to try it. How would you feel if you were one of the devs and the feature you created was pretty much ignored.
Achievements are there to extend the gameplay, and entice you into trying new things. 5G isn't going to end the world, or cause a debate in the house of parliament.

It it so hard to ask people for help?? I don't care if I get negative responses but hell I at least tried. LOL

All you people trying to make fun of whining people are ridiculous. I agree it's sorta stupid to not get a game because of 5G but it's also ridiculous to make an achievement that forces people to buy a $150 accessorie. After all this is a website for gaining achievements so yes people will be upset when they cannot get a full 1000G which is the reason most people are on here. Maybe all you people calling everyone babies should join other gaming sites that don't focus on achievements. I think it would be extremely frustrating to get 995G and know that you could have another 100% game but a simple useless achievement is holding you back. It's not like it's a hard achievement forcing you not to get the 1000G. It should have been a 0G achievement since most people thought the Kinect was only f

Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 08:18:53 AM

I don't see why everyone's so bothered about it. It's only one achievement, but everyone's making out like it's gonna ruin the whole game. The Unicorn Hunter seems a lot harder than this one, yet there's no where near the amount of people complaining. Not buying Forza because of Kinect just makes you seem kind of immature, I mean it's still gonna be a good game, they just added something extra for those people who got Kinect but found there weren't that many interesting games in it. Maybe they shouldn't have put this achievement in, but it's not really a reason to not buy a game.

ignore the last comment, browser hiccuped. @#141 Actually T10 spent a lot of time with the kinect to try to create an enhance experience when simply using the kinect with controller based controls. They made it so you can look into corners for example, which may not seem like much, but considering that a person will either look where they are going or turn their head subconsciously in some case in the direction they are moving, have the kinect auto turn the view into the corner can add to the simulation experience. Autovista was a way for them to experiment with Kinect controls to use it elsewhere. On the subject at hand for people saying they should have made it 0 GS, some games 100% flag is controlled by the number of achievements earned out of the total no total gamerscore. Also had the

Continued from above...

Also had they made it 0, nobody would have bothered to even attempt the achievement because it is zero. Achievements are designed to entice you to attempt things you may otherwise attempt to do, and reward you for accomplishing tasks in a given game. It is just 5 gs so it shouldn't as big of a deal as your making it, I would be more pissed if it was 1 GS. They have the right to make their achievements however they want. As for the GS rules, the rule is that all base 1000 GS must be obtainable without purchasing extra content (DLC), not extra peripherals. And those who say that Kinect is intended just for casual games and kids are out of their mind, Kinect was always intended to become an experience enhancer allowing game makers to add features that use it to expa

expand on what simply can't effectively be done on a controller alone. It was also intended to increase immersion within games in various ways, like looking-into-corners in F4, or being able to direct you squadmates using voice commands or saying your lines in ME3. Motion Controlled assisted gaming will be around for the foreseeable future, and once companies realize that Kinect can be used for than casual games or workout games (like T10 or Bioware is doing) then the Kinect can really come into it on. Steel Battalion also looks like another game that will mix the two controls well. It's an easy achievement anyway, if you don't get it shouldn't be a big deal as you will still enjoy the game irregardless of one achievement, you guys should be complaining abo

That's kinda sad. I also like how some of you are saying they threw Kinect in just to add this achievement, get you all wound up and then end up buying one. Forza was targeted at both hardcore sim racing fans as well as casual gamers; it makes sense they'd put Kinect features in, not just to get you saddo's to buy one for - get this - ONE 5G ACHIEVEMENT.

Or any game have to turn your head to look to the sides of the car...but when you turn your head...YOU CAN'T FUCKING SEE THE SCREEN ANYMORE! Geez Turn 10, I used you give you guys a LOT more credit than this. This was a STUPID idea!

Overall I'm not too disappointed, its only 5 points. Maybe I can borrow someone's kinect.

I'm so glad I had some use for my Kinect, albeit only 5 minutes.

Would it work if I went to a friend's house who already has the game and sign in on their Xbox with my account and do it?
