SRT – E3 Special & Forza Launch Party

The guys over at InsideSimRacing.tv were on hand at the Forza launch party at the E3 in Los Angeles, sharing their experience with all of us.

Forza Motorsport 5 is due to be released for Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One. New features of the fifth installment of the Forza franchise include laser-scanned tracks, open wheel race cars and lots of new content.

    Uh, D…………, how do you laser-scan a fantasy track??!!! LOL Miss your reports, guys. Why aren’t we getting more from you?

    • Realkman666

      You can’t, it’s only for real-world tracks.

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        or roads. They did laser scan that track in the demo.

        Just like gran turismo has been doing for years, they used real city streets to create a fantasy track in the game

    • Hugo Stiglitz

      Well just like in Gran Turismo, that city track is based on real city streets in Prague so they did actually laser scan that track.

      It may not be a real life city circuit but the roads exist and they did scan them.

    Hmm. I was being facetious. You knew that,…………..right?

    Forza is a great car game but motorsport isn’t really what it’s about anymore.

  • Chris Wright

    70′s F1 cars in a game. That’s progress. Here’s hoping Forza returns to sim values again.

  • Hugo Stiglitz

    I’m finding even the visuals off putting. Really not liking the cartoonish style they always go for in forza. Not to mention the physics look lifeless like usual.

    good review this was more like old school darin and sean.

    I have a question about Windows 8 and Xbox for the experts out there:

    I see windows in the commercials should xbox on it’s desktop. Does this means you can play your xbox on your windows 8 machine?

    does it mean you can use a wheel plugged into the windows instead of the xbox itself? I find this confusing. I don’t have a xbox but if this is possible I would consider buying one because I don’t want to buy a new wheel just to test forza out.
