Meh. I'm really 50/50 on Microsoft lately. I will keep my 360, but when it comes to Next-Gen console? However heartbreaking it is, Sony are looking more my type of console this year.

I prefer grittier racing than polished up showroom stuff. Who parks a F1 car in their lounge?

Good to see my recommendation made the TA news smile

This may actually persuade me to buy an XB1 on day 1...rather than a few years time. The chance to race classic F1 cars in a game has been a wish of mine for years, and what better than Hunt the Shunts title winning McLaren?

I wonder if it will include the Marlboro McLarens (MP4/4 anyone?) or the Rothmans Williams? Hell, even the 60's Lotus and BRM's or the 50's Vanwalls and Ferraris?

This might just tip me into forking out £500 this November...maybe, just maybe.

Edit: The OP is incorrect.

"1976 McLaren M23 and the 1976 Ferrari 312-2 cars, driven by Nikki Lauda and James Hunt respectively"

James Hunt raced for McLaren, Niki Lauda raced for Ferrari...

Well now this is interesting. I wonder how the damage will be implemented on these cars compared to the ones with bumpers and fenders.
Ha ha, Charade you are!

It's funny, I remember the race car damage models to be better than their production counterparts but going by current R1 cars then It'll be like trying to chip a rock with Paper.

I gues thats the reason they dont bring weather effects? ;-)

But anyway the car models are looking absolute AMAZING! This and Ryse are my favourite games and a reason for buing a XboxOne!

Are there weather effects and night tracks? I love Forza, but they are trying really hard to not do much. GT6 is coming out, as is Driveclub, so I hope they step their game up. Forza is awesome, but I have a feeling they will get left in the dust next-gen.

I love this series of games, but come on Forza I had night driving and weather effects back on Gran Turismo 4 on the PS2!

I've been hoping for a DLC pack like this for Forza 4.

This is even better. I can't wait.

If only FM5 came on the 360 as well. I really don't have 900 $ laying around at this time.
Unbelievably good.
