      finally, active aero and exhaust flames. hopefully the flames aren't over the top and annoying, like having a stock toyota yaris burping flames on every downshift.

      did it mention anything about dynamic time too? like the ability to run a full 24 hour race at le mans? or a compressed race with accelerated time?

      Nothing about time of day or weather yet.

      We'll get a big blowout at E3, though!

      The weather thing is make or break, to me.

      I loved that about GT5. 24 racers online in an endurance race with dynamic weather and time of day? YES PLEASE.

That's right. I'm special. All because I want to sell you a 50mm 1.8 lens so you can be just as cool. Have a good day.

      Not having weather & time effects would be a let-down...but only a minor one compared to the many, many ways GT5 let me down.

      I can't wait for this game to come out.

      Improved graphics and effects are pretty fancy but it will need weather and time lapse to be a big seller.

      Dirt 3 is probably going to be more for me.

      Turn 10 lost me as a customer when they kept screwing everyone with the DLC for Forza3

      I think more than anything they need to attack GT5 via marketing...Forza has never done a good job with their advertising IMO. Compare it to how many TV spots ran for GT5 I know a lot of people who love GT and have never even tried, or even heard of, Forza.

      especially considering how many race series/cars have GT sponsorship, and weren't even included in that game.

      this question may be too soon....and word on FM4 multiplayer...basically any chance it will be like in 2?

      career mode in 3 was great, but the multiplayer killed it for me. I didn't like that to even come close to competing, you had to use an AWD car. I had tons of cars in 2 that were of all the drivetrains that were competitive minus the few rocket ship cars that people booted others out of the lobby for using

      Where were you for the Vortex series? We had all sorts of fun for over a year racing different classes with a good group of guys.

      Public multiplayer was a f'ing joke most of the time (that's not unique to FM3 though). Private racing was where it was at.

      Some bits of news are coming out now that E3 is not far off... and all I have to say is WOW

      BTW, FM4 info is starting to leak out there (probably purposely to build hype) as we all know FM4 will be shown at E3. The latest... taken from gtplanet..

      Ford Mustang GT Coupe 1965
      Koenigsegg Agera 2011
      Lexus SC300 1997
      RUF RGT-8 2011

      Turn 10 Studios has also revealed that the cover car for the standard edition of Forza Motorsport 4 is the Ferrari 458 Italia.

      Get a head start on the competition with “Profile Import”
      For those who have invested tireless hours in “Forza Motorsport 3”, Turn 10 Studios is pleased to announce a unique “Forza Motorsport 4” feature called Profile Import, which rewards fans for their time. Based on your player level and the cars in your garage in “Forza Motorsport 3”, gift cars will be automatically added to your “Forza Motorsport 4” garage and you’ll also receive bonus gifts and credits. And for those who spent hours creating intricate layers and liveries in the “Forza Motorsport 3” Livery Editor, you will be able to import those layers, so your time isn’t lost!
      Love the fact that painters can port over their work from FM3. Shame I spent more time in FM2 but I do have some stuff to port over

      They mentioned a RUF RGT-8. I hope Porsches remained in the game and they didn't go PD route by including RUFs as Porsches. I'll take them.... but I don't want to lose the Porsches!!

      I told myself I wouldn't be getting the special edition for this but... if those 5 cars are exclusive to SE/CE owners... I don't care for the Tesla nor the Lexus but the RUF, 65 Mustang and Koenigsegg.... yeah... do want.

      New lighting engine looks great. But I have to say I hate the 'better with Kinect' logo on the boxart. ughhh...
      Hey MS... how about 'we opened up 3rd party wheel support so now "better with any wheel you wanna use"'

      The Top Gear branding on the packaging is intriguing. Also take note of the track on the box art... that's Indy although shown in the F1/road course orientation.

      Didn't even realize that! Hopefully it's not just Indy's oval. Would like to have their street track as well.

      I really really hope that T10/MS can properly market Forza 4...it doesn't matter to me, since I will pre-order it anyway, but I think they have a great opportunity to slap Sony/PD in the face over how pathetic GT5 is.

      I can not wait for FM4 and the early news thus far is great.

      Now I just need to buy a used MS 360 wheel before it comes out.

      F the stupid pre-order car bullcrap. They had better be available post-launch.

      I'm sure they will given T10's track record.

      Love the idea of data import. I put in a freakin' TON of time into F3, so it'll nice to have a head start on F4.

      I love the import feature. A few hundred race hours and 460 cars later, I hope I get some nice goodies!

      Really happy about the livery import feature for the artistic folks (which I am not one of ).

      Still can't do anything about the looks of it, other than run it into a wall.

      Can't wait. After getting a PS3 and GT5, and being disgusted by how crappy and anti-fun it is, I went back to Forza 3. My only gripes with Forza are that I want more cars, that XBoxLive sucks (I hate paying for online interactions with 12 year old ****-talking brats), the lack of weather, and that while they have downloadable tracks (hello Road America ), the races never actually use them. Beyond that, I love the customization options Forza 3 has. Painting it whatever color you want, building complex car artwork, different wheels... and ohhh my god the fun of engine and drivetrain swaps! I built the Cayman that Porsche won't, and it is goooooood.

      i agree, i hope those cars are available regardless of where the game is purchased.

      their website also has a some information regarding another VIP game pack that will have more features, which will undoubtedly cost more money, but be available at a later date. same with those five cars they mention that are available for an early run too.

      as far as the profile import, does that mean every single car can be drafted over? prize cars only? T10 gift cars only? wondering because i sold a lot of prize cars.

      Loving the data import. It makes me less bothered to take the time on new stickers/liveries knowing Ill be able to cross them over. Also I like the insentive to finish FM3 for the DL perks in FM4.

      it would be awesome if you could import vinyl groups from FM2

      I spent way more time in FM2 on custom liveries...would love to get them back

      i'd kill to get this one back...it took me FOREVER to do the lettering, etc.

      Sounds like everything I would want in FM4 that are not in FM3 have already been discussed. New real tracks would be nice, so would weather and time of day changes, and cheaper cars. I was playing FM3 over the weekend and some of the prices are ridiculous. I have approximately 1.3M in credits, but even with that much most of the upper end vehicles are out of my range by millions.
