From the GameSport article Joey linked to:


You'll find over 16 track environments that mix real life locales such as Germany's Nurburgring Nordschleife


A sim racer on the Nurburgring...



You guys saw that Sony stated that the ring was in GT4 right?

Does "Forza" mean anything in the racing world? -or is it just a made up word? (sorry for the stupid question)

Well, in Italian is means "Strong" or "Power" - not sure if there is any racing specific reference.

Good find, Dan! In case anyone missed it -- they have SEXY SCREENS over there:





Ok, I'm positive some pee came out that time :shock:


The entire inside of the vehicle is viewable from the dash, to the driver, to the driver's hand shifting the manual stick on each gear.


And there's a little more :Rock:

You've seen the shots of the setup they're demoing it on at E3, haven't you? 3 seperate 16x9 plasmas next to each other, showing front, left and right views - you can run secondary cameras via SystemLink. As long as you've got 3 TVs, 3 XBoxes and 3 copies of the game, that is...

Are you serious? That's weird, because I was thinking about this just yesterday -- I was wondering how a console could give multiple monitors in order to restore the peripheral vision I want in racing games. Sound interesting.


As for the in-dash view -- is the inside of the glove box modeled on any of these cars?

All these racing games for the box is just getting me madder that there is no quality force feedback wheel available. I know there are the crap Madcatz wheels but nothing with FF.


I do not like to race using the controller. Period. My old man hands just can't finesse a controller plus there is a much greater sense of realism when you drift a turn using the wheel, heal/toe, feathering a throttle, etc.


I love racing games though.


Oh well.



Edit: What is that wheel in that E3 pic? Doesn't look familiar except as a PC wheel.
