It feels a little more realistic in this game though.

Forza 2's drifting felt a little too Crisco-esque if you can picture that.

I already realize that I'm going to be giving up way too many hours of my life when this game comes out.

If you go even a little off track it will not count your laptime. In exclamation point logo (inside of a triangle) appears next to your time if you went too far off track, touched something, etc.

Yes thank you, I've got it figured out now. I found you also can't use the "rewind" function if you want it to count your lap.

Ive managed to get about 10K points drifting with the 997 and the R8, I don't know how people are getting 40k.

Ok, so I've played the demo, and here are some impressions:

Graphics:

Very good graphics, I'd say 8.5/10 however, compared to granturismo....it doesn't look that stellar. I guess I was expecting superbly realistic looking graphics...I might even bump it up to a 9/10.
On the 360...some edges are slightly jagged (no AA)
Amazing environment! I was simply speechless.

Sound:
Ofcourse, the sound is always good. I mean, I was using a basic 2.1 system, so I'm not sure how well the surround is now.

Gameplay:
I think the game mechanics are rock solid with this one too. I was SO relieved to play forza after NFS:shift (which has TERRIBLE handling).

Now, it's probably me getting used to the controller after a long time, but I felt as though the steering was way too sensitive sometimes....I wish I had a steering wheel

Anyhow, overall, I MUST play more!

I'm currently the highest bidder. With the game included a month before release? And the money is all going to charity. I'm willing to spend the extra dough for a model, a month of game time, and a good cause.

You won't get the game any earlier than the street date.

MVPs are getting early copies of FM3, I heard they were getting them as early as this or next week.

You guys should really make it clear. I was ready to get into the crowd and bid.

Maybe it's because I was playing with a controller, but I couldn't find this realism everybody keeps talking about...Yes the graphics are fantastic, yes the clutch-manual option is nifty, but the physics feel way off. It's like the cars are on rails- how is my Mini capable taking hairpins at 50mph? It feels way more arcade than sim. Maybe I just need to get a steering wheel?

My experience with GT5 prologue suggests that it is the more realistic game in terms of driving dynamics. Granted, I played that game with a steering wheel, but nevertheless.

Just my opinion, please don't flame.

I agree completely. Perhaps the slight arcadey feel was just to interest more people.

You guys are lucky I stopped bidding. I would've raised hell with ebay because nowhere on the listing does it say you have to wait for the game. I would consider editing your listing for your own sake.

And guardian, I got outbid.

Sorry, but even sending all the money to charity doesn't make the game worth ~$1000 in my eyes.

It said 601 and went to 800 in a minute, lol.

It would have sucked for me if we didn't have a member who worked for the game people. I would have justified it somehow.

A $40 premium for 30 days of gaming wouldn't be too bad. Especially with the model which I didn't really care for, but it would be a neat memento.

But now that I found out you don't get the game early, fuck that!

Btw, the bid is at $1035 with almost 48 hours to go.
