I love reading the GT5 Boards. Its such a resemblance between them and us when it comes to release dates.

At least they know they are waiting for something :worried:
Quote from CoolColJ :

What is this? Is that both co-driver and driver of the Ford going to get out of their cars and go to see the fireworks?
I never understand why in most damage models these days after the side of the car gets a hit the doors open... RBR had it too - was the first if I remember rightly.

Don't doors usually dent and cave in a bit? I'm certain I've never seen a car (rally or race) with a door open after contact... Although thinking about it, it happened in the BTCC once a couple of years back with Rob Collard, but my point is, doors don't fly open as often or as easily as these games suggest it does after damage!

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay.

Bottomline here is, NO ONE KNOWS YET.
yeah before the end of 2010. 11:59pm December 31st
I'd trust the Amazon date as much as anything else.
Reports abound that it will miss a 2010 release date, but who knows.....

Bottomline is, you've got around a month form when the game goes gold, to when it hits the street, and it ain't gone gold yet......

Meanwhile, Forza devs pump out another 1/2 ass, shitty sequel to Forza 3, with still awful physics and no-consequence head-on collisions on "Full" damage.
Really?, is Forza 4 out then?.

Or are you talking about the re-packaged Forza 3 with all the DLC?, which isn't a sequel.

Nah.

He is just looking for ways to rip on Forza and so calm himself down about GT5 being.... well.... delayed. Again.

What Forza have you been playing??
Quote from Nathan_French_14 :What Forza have you been playing??

Forza 3's tires behave like concrete. Extremely low slip angle threshold (you can especially see this manifested in the steering - you barely need to turn the wheel even in 900 degree mode). Weight transfer is also minimal, the cars have too much grip and corner too fast, and only the most powerful supercars will get loose if you just mat the gas at the apex. The game also drifts for you, even if you use a wheel.

No, but it's coming. As craptastic as Forza 3. Should be their slogan.
render? Hope not. Imagine that many cars racing.
one car i really really want is a 2008 GT500KR. Only game is was ever in is the POS NFS Undercover. Photomode will pwn.

It's a little bit different this close to Christmas, they had a slot to burn the 7 million (read this somewhere, dunno if its right) Blu-Rays, they missed that slot and obviously now it is almost impossible to do that so close to Xmas.

What??? They do get a rallypack?

One bundle comes with the DFGT. That Apex book is chunky!
