    www.xbox.com now has a trailer up for Forza Motorsport, Microsoft's attempt to add a GranTurismo style racer to their lineup. Looks suh-weet.

    I hate this stupid 'ship date' game. Tell the consumer the day it will be in stores, not when it ships. Let gamers have the same luxury as music buyers and know that new releases will

    In a terrific bit of Allanis Morrissete style false irony, I was pissed tuesday cause I couldnt get it, then on wednesday when I DID get it I never played it as I was so tied up with EQ and Mercury on PSP.

    Phenomenal game! I love it. I played it for about 4 hrs last night. Will give more thoughts on it later. But it is definitely worth the purchase if you like racing games. It is 10x better than anything else on the XBOX.

    It's not force feedback. It rumbles. It tries to fake force feedback. But it's not force feedback.

    Force feedback reactions are actually programmed into the game, vs. generic vibration rumbles. I recall at one point MS was going to be releasing a first party wheel alongside Forza. Guess they dropped it.

    Looks solid. I had the MadCatz version for a short time but returned it. Just didn't feel right, and took up too much space.
