Just to piss you off, also found in that thread was this bit of information.
QUOTE

Another observation concerning the Gamepro video...

Once again looking at the map in the top right corner of the map, I saw the name "Speedway." We'd all been speculating that it referred to Speedway, Indiana, where IMS is located. However, the red dot representing Speedway is still in the southeast US. I opened up Google Earth and did a search for Speedway, Alabama, since Talladega is there, and the dot seemed to be in the Mississippi/Alabama region. Sure enough, there is a marker for Speedway, Alabama, and just southeast of the marker is Talladega Superspeedway.

Speculate further as you wish.

I posted it, more to show you that GT series is becoming more "rednecky" as you would have put it.

I wouldn't knock any racing style, until you've actually tried it for real.

Going by the photo in the thread link posted, it doesn't look like much unless they have different arangements of it marked by cones like i've seen on TG, then it might be interesting

I wonder if'll they'll update all the courses to their current status, like the right sponsor signs, etc

We need the Suzuki Liana and the Chevy Lecetti in the game, so we can have our own reasonably priced car challenge.

I don't give a crap of Xbox or your blatant microshizzle propaganda. I've always had Sony products, never a single problem with them, so sod off. GT and PS are still the king for me, and now that GT5 is going to be even greater than anything else on the market at the moment, I don't regret a thing. you can go play your forza with ricer bodykits and 600bhp civics, I stick to realistic cars.

forza sucks. why would i like that game?

besides, your blind hate for microsoft and irrational love for sony make your opinions pretty much null and void.

go back to dreaming about even owning a real car.

Bash Forza, Microsoft, Musclecars all you like, but dont bash the 600bhp Civic's wink2.gif when your EG Civic is FR, and carrying the engine from a S2000, having a Bomex kit is just more salt in your wounds wink2.gif

Opinion does diversify from different users. shifty2.gif

You know guys, I have my own opinion too since I find Forza 2 very reliable to how to clear a real track or switch sim to sim. But Forza have too much aid in the steering & it clearly hurt my skill if I pop into another type of physic or track that isn't similar to Forza. The game is very focused on perfecting the tuning, but maintening the line is far too easy. It suck, but gran Turismo share the same problem.

I clearly prefer PGR as far as skill is demanded, since the game backstab you on bad habit when you're pushing the car(You're the one who control the entry). The tracks are all sinuous & that's what I like when I play racing games.

It's like no wonder why I'm here in the forum. rolleyes.gif

I hate Test Drive Unlimited & I find Gran Turismo not very sim oriented. I will clearly point out that a lot of people does differ from this opinion of mine. I may be wrong or may be not, but I won't force people to share my ego since it is me, myself & I opinion .

As far as reliability of the XBOX 360, I think FinToy-83 is half right. I got twice RROD in a row & yeah, MS did indeed sent me a broken refurbished 360. Though, my first XBOX 360(2005) did last for almost 2 years.

The funny part in the story is that the warranty does restart to zero when you get RROD, so yeah, you get 1 year back for any defect & 3 years back for the RROD. Microsoft clearly cannot keep-on on giving bad system since it's very costy & not worth it.

As shocking as it is, I still think the 360 is a very very good purchase.

Gran Turismo is a great racing game with tons of realistic looking car & have the sim physic that most people like, but I don't like it. grin2.gif

I've actually owned a car, or well, actually it was a Ford, not a car by my standards.. rolleyes.gif I had to sell it though.. too thirsty, heavy, underpowered, couldn't corner above 22mph because the side skirts would had scraped the ground ( no, it wasn't lowered or bodykitted..) etc.. I'm currently saving for a proper car. So, go back to your "140mph crashes wreck the car yet it still moves" game..

and my blind hate towards microshizzle has been formed during last 15 years after all those mediocre->low quality products I've been through. Maybe I've just had a bad luck with them.

i'll just say that i've been using windows since 98. i have seen blue screen exactly once (while on windows ME) and have not had a crash or problem of any kind on 98SE or XP. i also have a zune, which has worked flawlessly since i got it, and my xbox has given me no trouble. oh, and after going through three logitech mice because of sticking buttons, i've been using a microsoft mouse for nearly 6 years now with no issues. damn, microsoft SUCKS!

and you can go back to your "bounce off of cars and walls, have no damage modeling, and also hit a car into a wall head on at 140 mph, reverse, and continue driving without a scratch on it" game.
