A few days ago, I posted a comparison video between the recently-released Forza Motorsport 5 for Xbox One and its old-gen successor.
Meanwhile, a very interesting and very different comparison has surfaced on the web as some has made a frame by frame comparison of the retail version and the E3 demo version that was shown off last June, showing the Mclaren P1 in Prague.
As you can see below, the retail version of Forza Motorsport 5 has lost a lot of its optical fidelity in the final version, especially when it comes to trackside details such as trees & buildings as well as the overall lighting.
This might be related to the much-discussed performance issues the new Xbox One platform seems to be having, especially considering that Forza 5 is a launch title for the brand new platform.
The title has also recently made the headlines due to the its in-game monetization. Players that want to drive the E21 Lotus Formula One car in Forza Motorsport 5 either have to spend a 60+ hours on the game before the car becomes available or are offered a shortcut by buying the required credits – For a whopping 62 pounds for one single car!
