Forza 4 Poised to Crush Gran Turismo in 2011
Forza 4 is old news, as a Kinect demo was already shown off at E3 earlier this year. Microsoft has released a new teaser, but don't expect any compelling new gameplay footage; this is about as bare-bones as it gets.
Still, with many Gran Turismo adopters already returning to Forza III after a disappointing experience, Turn 10 is in an excellent position to drive a stake through Sony's heart when this sequel launches next year.
From Microsoft: Forza Motorsport 4 will be the most expansive and vividly realistic automotive experience across any console, bringing you closer to the edge than you’ve ever been before. Through the power of Kinect, players will be able to step through the TV screen and jump into the driver’s seat while the engaging controller-based experience will let you take on the bone-jarring physics, unparalleled levels of customization, and rosters of dream cars and tracks. Offering gameplay that will electrify racing fans and excite car lovers and novices alike, the highest-rated racing franchise of this generation returns in fall 2011.
