Forza Motorsport 4
Forza Motorsport 4 Officially Announced

View author's profile

We confusingly last saw Forza Motorsport 4 at E3 2010 with screenshots sporting the Forza 3 logo in the corner, showcasing the Kinect-powered viewing mode that's touted for the game.

Well, now it's been officially announced at the VGAs by two of the presenters from the US version of motoring magazine show Top Gear, with the same Kinect viewing mode on display.

And that's that, apart from this trailer, fresh from the VGAs. Take a look.

@#12 Agreed

Shit in spanish means "Mierda" pronounced me-er-da.

Gran in spanish means "big" and its written and pronounced the same way.

Here people call Gran Turismo "Gran Mierdismo" cause it rhymes and translates to big shit.

TL;DR GT is a big pile of shit.

@17, its tough to say that Forza can absolutely whoop Gran Turismo considering they've made 5 of em already and thats what got me into racing games, but you have a point nonetheless, for this game looks ridiculous from so little material. Loved the 3rd and the 4th looks better already. This and TDU2 are going to make my year just that much better. THANK YOU FORZA!

Sweet! And what's more, by the time GT5 finally came out, Forza 4 can hopefully be a better game. So much for perfection, Mr Yamauchi or whatever you're called.

If Top Gear have got an involvement on making this game, I apparently will get too excited.

Please let there be a Top Gear test track with Power Laps.

if you have watched top gear, you know the board for lap times? im will to bet they will have one weekly for top laps set on the test track (if its in the game), or have xbl races on the show. there is alot they can do to help each other. im psyched, i love Forza and love top gear! this is great because all the games i have are really getting boring, even forza 3 is losing me, i already completed year 6, have 920/1000, but all gold just takes way too long. however me and my cousin found demolition derby to be very amusing.

anyways... CANT WAIT!

CANNOt.FUCKING.WAIT!!! I just 1K'd Forza 3 and now I gotta wait for this. GT5 is kinda a let-down with the long wait for it and not really delivering but it'll hold me till Forza4 or better yet 4ZA.

Still yet to play FM3, but FM2 was absolutely class, if a little long-winded. Never got into Gran Turismo, Forza, despite it's realism tag, just felt more fun . . .

Looking good so far, despite the lack of gameplay . . .

#27 - are you retarded? damage unrealistic - untrue, cars dont roll - are you serious! and i dont understand how a racing game can be described as slow?

i bought the first test drive and will be buying the second but the handling on the first one was garbage.

Nothing beats forza in the racing genre imo

im just hoping that they dont ruin the game tryin to incorporate all this kinect bs

first of all they did not show anything new in that trailer, a majority of that was live footage and what little gameplay they did show was just he kinect shit the showed months ago.

second yes when it comes to realism forza blows and you want gran turismo.

and last but not least all you test drive kids know that the franchise existed before unlimited right?

Regardless Realism = Turismo, Fun = Test Drive, Excitement = Need for Speed, Wannabe = Forza

#51 - i dont see how you can say forza is unrealistic. especially when you're saying gran turismo is the pinnacle of realness when all it seems to have done is mimic need for speed's 'full lock for 2 seconds = drift' hardly realistic. gran turismo is just a pretty game now, they've ignored the 'real driving simulator' and concentrated on graphics

but i suppose at the end of the day its down to preference. i used to love gt then i played forza 1 on xbox and was just leaps and bounds ahead.

GOTY 2011 - Do one with the kinect garbage though
