Forza Motorsports (Xbox) is out!

I saw it at Best Buy today.
I'm kinda kicking myself because I didn't pick up a copy.
(I was killing time at BB while getting $800 worth of new rubber on my Burb..)

1. Has anyone bought/played it yet?
2. Why can't I use a USB steering wheel with my Xbox? Playing racing games using a hand controller is ridiculous.

Re: Forza Motorsports (Xbox) is out!

I've been playing it for a few days. It's pretty cool with lots of options, although I do feel a little bit disappointed overall. Except for the online capability, I'm not sure yet whether I'd put it ahead of GT4.

Re: Forza Motorsports (Xbox) is out!

Anyone want to buy a barely used copy? My son picked this up the other day for his birthday, and it's been in his Xbox one time. He can't return it to Best Buy, so just wants to get some of his money back. The other option is we just plop it on Ebay, but I figured I would give you guys a chance first. Any offers, or should I just set a price?

Re: Forza Motorsports (Xbox) is out!

He has little patience, and really wanted Doom3. Well, they were out of Doom3, so in order to spend his money, since it was burning a hole in his pocket, he opted for Forza. He's 14 and he claims it's just like Project Gotham. Keep in mind that he has no patience, so I am sure that all of the differences between PGR and Forza that he can't stand are exactly why other people love it. He loves Midnight Club 3 Dub Edition. So that should give you an idea of where he's coming from.

I am sure he would take $40 and we could ship it Priority. We are going to post it on Ebay tonight if no one's interested.

Re: Forza Motorsports (Xbox) is out!

Only had a quick fang. Feels a little more arcade than GT4, but not too much. A little easier to correct a slide etc. Smaller selection of cars etc, but pretty comprehensive. 80% of the cars on GT4 ive never used, and prolly never will. For straight cars/driving/mods between each is pretty close......so we have a draw.....or do we?

Online capability of Xbox put Forza daylight ahead of GT4.

Poking the Devil with a stick then running away

Current availability of quality, $150 force feedback USB wheel for PS2 put GT4 daylight ahead of Forza.

We'll see how that Fanatec Speedster wheel is, if it ever becomes available. The Logitech (PS2 only) is pretty sah-weet. Still, how can I justify buying yet another wheel, to race another game that's really no better than Gran Tursimo, which I already have? Trust me, the online racing I do on the PC puts anything on Xbox Live to shame...
