^ I'd like the BMW 1 Series M or Honda CR-Z EX. Wonder who the UK retailer will be for those two ....

I'm glad Turn 10 are adding smaller details to cars, such as having working mechanical vents/spoilers and the like (Y)

This and Skyrim are the two games I'm looking forward to this year.
Just hope somebody releases a decent wheel for a decent price when this gets released. Already on my 2nd Microsoft wheel (which is a refurbished unit as you just can't find them anymore). Why did Microsoft ever stop making these? Best wheel by far for the price.

Can't wait for this to come out. :D Love the box art too, but ruined by the 'Better than Kinect' ribbon thing xD

Awesome Game, have FM3, looking foward to the launch of this.
One small flaw on the box, where it says, 'Better with Kinect Sensor', it should read, 'More Gimmicky with Kinect Sensor' :D

People hating on the kinect ribbon, :p Come on, you don't have to use it if you don't want to. Nothing wrong with adding some extra functionality through kinect to a "hardcore" game of sorts as long as it's optional. I'm sure the headtracking wouldn't hurt either if done really well.

Just wait until you try racing with Head tracking and you'll see what the "better with" really is.

I'm sure they'll be available as DLC down the line. Just pick the one you prefer and wait for the other one.

You can get one for as low as $100 these days - a friend got 4GB 360, extra controller, 3 months of XBL, $50 GC for a grand total of $199 (effective xbox price is ~$100)

There have been so many such offers in recent weeks, I wonder if MS is testing waters for an upcoming price cut (E3 ?). ;)

Edit: stupid me! You are based in UK. :blush:

Head Tracking is just another gimmick, IMO it does not add that significant value to the game, since you can effectively still move the 'head' around in FM3 without kinect.

Say you have a full great game. You have a bunch of cars, realistic driving, great online. Wow! It's a tremendous game. Well, worth getting it. But wait! They've added the ability to look at the cars in the showroom and interact with them using Kinect? That's better! The same great game is still there, they just added some features for Kinect users. I don't know why some people are so afraid of this. :blink:

You can move your head but the view doesn't change.

Yes you can move the head, but it's awkward and doesn't work very well.

do a youtube search for GTR+TrackIR, and see what head tracking does in a racing simulator. it allows you to properly look "into" corners, allowing you to take corners much better and have much better situational awareness.

So no head tracking isn't just a gimmick. it's a great extension to realistic racing sims. and one that will put you ahead of the curve of those that don't have it, much like driving with a wheel makes you much better than those racing with a pad.

You are definitely correct on wheel vs pad part but somehow I am not just yet buying into the head tracking thing...

Pretty Nifty, but this same thing can be handled by the secondary stick, since Turn 10 can make the secondary one only for this purpose...
