I too will be buying Forza instead, because even though my brother has a PS2 that I could play GT4 on, I still have a three month Xbox Live subscription to use over the summer.

Forza is 30fps however, as compared to a rock-solid 60 with GT4. I can barely handle racing games at 30fps, while other genres are OK, it just ruins it in racing games for me. GT4 at 60fps vs. Forza at 30 look words apart to my FPS-***** eyes.

Which sucks, because I only have an Xbox.

In case anyone is looking to buy, Outpost/Fry's has it (+DFP) for $130 after $20 MIR:
http://shop4.outpost.com/product/432...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

I believe the mail-in-rebate will work with purchases from any retail store, so if you already purchased it, you're not out of luck.

Is Forza Motorsport 1080i?

Nope... as far as I know Forza does NOT support 1080i.

Default Re: Gran Turismo 4 = phenominal

I played Gran Turismo 4 on friend's PS2 on my TV. First of all, the game is really good. Excellent handling, graphics etc. However, their so called 1080i is fake. I've played 3 games that support 720p on my XBOX like Soul Calibur II, Amped 2 and THUG2, and GT4 has waaaaay more jaggies than them. I don't have anything against the game, but this game doesn't have true 1080i. The actual clarity is waaaaaay far from what actual 1080i looks on my TV, and I should know since I have 6 all 1080i channels and 720p games on my XBOX. That's not to say the game doesn't look very good.

Other than that, that's about it. Whoever says it's a better game than others just because it's 60fps is a retard. I have the Forza demo and PGR2 and they're both 30fps, and I spent a good 5 hours playing Gran Turismo 4. It might make a difference to you if you switch between them really fast, but when you get into the game, it doesn't make one single difference. I didn't find myself playing the game and thinking "oh this is so much better now, finally 60fps!". No, I found myself enjoying the game as I normally would enjoy Project Gotham 2.

And like I said, the 1080i in this game is nothing special. In fact, if I turn on widescreen in PGR2 to make it 852x480, it looks EXACTLY the same kind of detail from when you're looking at the TV as GT4 in "1080i". If I put on Amped 2 at 1280x720p however, the quality is increased considerably like I said before. It doesn't really make a difference to me.

Yup... been that way for forever... I just can't stand those steering wheels... they are either over sensitive or not sensitive enough and they are just too uncomfortable... sticks is all you need.

Try actually reading the message:

Stating a personal preference regarding frame rate, nothing more. Thought it was quite obvious - it's as if only a retard could misintepret it.

I'm getting Forza when it comes out...I cant wait. I'll take the analog sticks over the steering wheel any day also..most wheels i've found use pedals along with them and I have very limited use of my feet.
