I'm genuinely curious as to what prompted this. As far as I'm aware, you didn't enjoy FM5 any more than most of the rest of us, so what made you decide to pre-order FM6?

450 cars isn't any good if the multiplayer is borked.

Or there's a massive bug on release, and you complain on their forum, and your post vanishes, while beardy Dan, tells the press about his dynamic 3d puddle creative achievements.

Exactly, even though project cars is broken in many ways, the fact they are plainly determined to get it all fixed and improved upon, and Ian Bell engaging with as many people as possible, is a stark difference with how T10 deal with their customers, who are treated with some disdain

Very kind of you to act as guinea pig In all seriousness, it would be good to get some feedback from people we know.

As for the 450 cars/comp theory, I think there were upwards of 180 cars in FM5 which were never in any of the FMUK comps, but that wasn't the issue. The problem was that few people were playing the game after the first couple of months. T10 need to improve the gaming experience for FM6 if it isn't to suffer the same fate. I'm not saying they won't improve it, but it is something they need to do to avoid the franchise suffering a lingering death.

With each release in the franchise it becomes more apparent that T10 are just into headline grabbing gimmicks that immediatley make people go 'WOW!' but then those same people soon release they add nothing to the experience. This time so far it's 3D puddles and a car noise when you turn your console on

Not to mention, the 'Competitive Edge' the 'steering wheel like material' will give you, nor the 'Titanium LOOK' triggers.

One thing I am interested in with all the video around this game though, is the Wheel and triple screen set up they are using.... Now, this makes me wonder what they are running it on, PC, or a new breed of multiple screen / system linked xbox. THe wheel is nothing like the wheels we currently have access to, actually looks superbly good.

That said though, if it was broken or slightly shady on launch, they would deny it and say it's perfect.

I've heard it was running on three hacked Xbone's but take that with a pinch of salt. The wheel that is being used is the new Logitech G290 Logitech G G920 Driving Force game steering wheel It's basically a rebadged G25/27 that works with Xbone. So we are talking decade old tech. Gear driven ffb instead of belt driven with that lovely deadzone the older Logitech Wheels are famous for. They look quite snazzy but think the offerings from Thrustmaster are better.

I'm heavily invested in my tx now, with all available add-ons, so not much chance I'd change without a substantial offering

I think, again, T10 should be hauled across the coals in front of trading standards for false advertising.

If it was a car company demo'ing the latest and greatest, including a non supported, 3D puddle avoidance system, in a cockpit that looked like NASA mission control, but then on delivery gave you a 1992 VW POLO, there would be consequences.

Still not at all sure what the point was of them going to Le Mans given that I only saw mention of Horizon 2 over there (this was just before E3). Then again, the main use people seemed to have for the Forza stand in the village was sheltering from the rain.

But for the record, like Slim and John I don't feel a sudden urge to rush out and buy another Xbox One just so I can hear "Generic Acceleration Noise 1" when I press the button.

I'm struggling to justify 50 for the game let alone 300 for a 'Forza' console

If you're struggling to justify 50 for the game, do you think I can?

Spiney buys DLC. Said DLC then glitches and is removed.

Coincidence, I think not.

Saw this posted over at MVG. Forum member asked T10 about the return of storefronts. No reason not to believe it.

There are no storefronts in FM6, the curation system used in FM5 has been revamped and significantly improved.

Because it's all about the economy. The storefront allowed people to exploit it to gain huge amounts of credit, it would take some effort to fix it, therefore it must be abolished. Doesn't really matter what their fans want, they seem to believe they just have to produce something with the Forza name on and it will sell enough to cover costs.

Not saying that what is done in FM6 will be crap, it probably won't be. It's just that I'm getting less and less faith in the belief that what is in the game is what I want to be in the game. PCars may have it's flaws, but at least I feel like the developers are on the same wavelength as me.

Me neither mate. I will get it in the end but with the let down of FM5 and the failure of PCars I don't want to race or paint. Can't be bothered with the endless let downs. Will see what FM6 is like around xmas.

Seems a bit strong, unless you're talking about it from a personal standpoint. From my viewpoint, this game has so much right about it (tuning, physics, the whole race feel) that I can forgive the odd error. Last week's race was so annoying for me not because the game was crap, but because I was really enjoying it right up until the car settings appeared to reset. But in the whole scheme of things, I'd rather that than the general feeling of 'meh' I got from FM5 - if a similar thing had happened on that I'd probably just shrugged my shoulders and not really been bothered.

One thing which does surprise me is that you've described yourself as being let down by FM5. That's not a good thing for T10 given that I don't know of anyone else who I talked to who enjoyed it as much as you did. I hope FM6 doesn't tank as the more good racing games out there the better, but if initial sales figures are below predictions I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall...
