    Hopefully there will be more Presets for the cars?

    Will this just be more cars and tracks - or a new engine to compete with the prettyness of GT5P?

    GT5 doesn't look good while playing, only in replays.

    Wouldn't be hard competing with that.

    yeh i find the cars in gt5 a bit flat and lifeles, there doesnt seem any real depth to them. they certainly have a massive polygon count, but it just doesnt show that well. they could certaily do with making forza look better tho, pgr4 looks a fair bit better and that only launched a few months after forxa 2

    nah this just means that the game comes with a minimal set of cars and tracks and the rest is avaiable for aproximatly double the price of the game in total from the xbox shopping channel :)

    Maybe this is because they will switch to an external Blu-Ray drive...so there will be much more room on one.
    (Blasphemy !)

    I very much doubt that, there would be a massive backlash if MS allowed developers to use a BR drive to play games.

    Idk what TV you're using, but GT5 has to be the most realistic car game ever and I've seen Forza 2. Both games have their benefits.

    I haven't played GT5 or forza, but you're all wrong. Crazy Taxi is the best!

    Doest it even matter if it did come on 2 discs??? I mean, its been done before on console not even thinking about some pc games on 4 + discs. This is just one of those pointless debates like back in the day of the Amiga , when some games had over 11 discs.

    So what, you might have to swap a disc. I think people are getting very lazy and expect too muc

    Good news that its confirmed that a 3rd game is on the way. I going to have to finish Forza 2 soon then because im not even half way :) and I want to get Grid.

    its rare on a racing game tho, as theres no set "story point" where you can change discs. it has been done though, GT2 had an arcade disc and a GTmode disc, and that was never a problem. and they smelt of rubber wich was cool

    Couldn't you just dump a load of the extra content onto the hard drive from the second disk?
    Or maybe they are shipping it with a huge flash drive :D

    They will offer the additional content via download, and charge 9.99 for the electronic shipping.

    Compare the game to GRID on pc in looks and we will see

    GRID on max settings is easily best looking racer ive seen running, Its also one of the best racers this year ( if not the best)

    cupboard not all xboxs have a hard drive so thats not an option

    As for gt5p its not even a full game, Wait till its fully released then compare

    As for forza 3 its too early since the last one, Lets hope its more than just tracks and cars. Since i wont buy a game for more cars and tracks ( and very few else will either)
