    http://electricpig.co.uk/2011/06/07/...4/#more-136313

    Forza 4 Feature Details from Turn 10
    New Track: The Bernese Alps

    http://www.forzamotorsport.net/en-us/Through_The_Alps/

    Cars at E3 - Kia cee’d, 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, 2011 Subaru WRX STI, 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO, Ferrari California, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari 599 GTO, Ferrari Enzo,
    Bugatti Veyron, McLaren F1 and Lamborghini Reventon.
    http://www.forzamotorsport.net/en-us/Cars_of_FM4/

    Car Clubs - Players will also be able to mark their individual cars as “shared”, making them available to other car club members to tune, paint, and race as they please. Shared cumulative club leaderboards—which will track everything from lap times to photography ratings

    Rivals Mode - Whether you’re navigating cones in an autocross event, or dialing in laps at Laguna Seca in the hopes of turning out your best possible lap time, each time you beat a friend’s score, they’ll receive an in-game message. Conversely, any time a friend knocks down one of your scores, you’ll get a message and, with the press of a button, you’ll be taken to that event where you can do your best to take back the top spot. Rivals mode isn’t limited to your friends list, however. At any time, you’ll be able to pick any score on a leaderboard and try and beat it. This is for more than simple bragging rights—you’ll earn credits for taking down scores and the higher up the leaderboard you go, the bigger the bounties you’ll earn for taking them down.
    Jeremy Clarkson

    Top Gear Integration

    Car Experience - Using either Kinect or your controller, you’ll be able to explore these exquisitely rendered cars at a previously unimagined level of detail. Climb in, settle into the $#@!pit, fire up the engine, or step outside the car let Jeremy Clarkson take you to school with fascinating insight on this most rare of car collections. It’s an entirely new way to experience and appreciate cars.

    Message Center - New message center. Receive messages and challenges from your friend; learn about the latest challenges and contests in the community; or find out what’s happening with your car club mates.

    Online fun - 16-player racers online, user-hosted-public lobbies, new hoppers and time trials.

    I read that this wheel is going to $700.

    Although i think that price refers to the entire Fanatec package with pedals and shifter, which I already have. I bet the wheel alone is still going to be around $400 though.

    I know its a **** load, but I'm buying it. The instant it's available for pre-order from fanatec I'm forking over the money, no matter how much it is.

    How much are you looking to spend? You should buy a Fanatec Porsche GT2 wheel - it's AWESOME! And if you buy the standard pedals and shifter it'll only run you about $350 for everything - definitely worth it.

    Really does prove how better lighting and reflection can make a game look that much better.

    Plus that looks offscreen, imagine on screen

    Did anyone notice in the OP how it says "All cars and tracks have equal graphical fidelity". If that isn't a kick in balls for GT5 fans than I don't know what is. LOL I have never seen a statement like that as a bullet point for a video game.

    That would be a new feature for Forza, which has in the past had some very sub-par car models included.

    Really? I've played FM3 for hundreds of hours and haven't noticed sub par modeling on anything. It all looks the same level to me.
