Z06 - I attended a press-only event at my office where they rolled out what they termed as a section of the game that is complete. They try to get a small section to take around to the media since there is about a 3-month lag time from when we cover something until it finally hits the magazine racks. I must admit that it was better than GT3, but a week later, Microsoft came by with a game that was still in progress and it blew me away! I even managed to get a demo disk of Laguna Seca!
But really, I think another thing that will put Forza on top is the level of online play they have. Sony made the mistake of making online play much more of a hassle. Xbox keeps it all pretty centralized for the gamer and they hace a list of Xbox Live rules that are 43 pages long so that it's all relatively seamless.
In the end, we're better off with the competition between the brands. It stimulates more innovation and better engineering. Imagine what things will be like in 10 years!!!
If you find yourself alone, riding in green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled; for you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!
