I switched my Destiny to One...  instead of 360.

With Assassin's Creed, and a host of other games, I've gotten spoiled with the One's features.  It is wayyyy too convenient.  Still room for improvement, but better than the 360 (for me).

Regarding Horizon (first one), yeah, it got a bit repetitive, and I don't think I played it for more than 3 months, but the kids loved the environment (free roam, etc...).

We are considering going back to the ONE version of Destiny here.  It seems several friends who were nterested in the game are now planning to wait until it goes in the cheap bin now.

As for FH2, we will get one copy of that for sure.  Like others, I got bored with the first one after a couple of weeks, but I'm very interested in seeing the detail and gameplay on the ONE and the addition of whether to a Forza game is waaaaay overdue.  It'll be a good bubblegum game play.  My GF and I tend to play a lot of coop campaign shooter stuff.  That is our default go-to whether it be Borderlands, Left for Dead, Call of Duty or whatever.  Driving games gives us a nice filler option when either of us want to play solo.  Since this is less frequent than coop and we are sharing our copy of FH2, it will be fresh a little longer I think.

That is likely what most will be doing.  I know my GF and I won't arrive until late afternoon/early evening on Friday for that reason.

Very true brother... but despite that 15hp diffrence (some say 6)... it seems like the 2012's are pulling harder (not just 13's).
look at the 3 runs below.. the first one did have a midpipe, but the other 2 are 100% stock and landed a hair above 10 secs.
not a single 14/15 has done this. Arkmae ran 10.852 in his 2014,  but he has a midpipe, catback exhaust, and drop in air filters.
this was also in Sidney.. not sure how the DA is in Australia.

#4  - 10.957 sec @ 125.5  mph  MC
*Stillen Midpipe Only* 2012 GTR  OE Dunlop Summer Tires  93oct
1.69 60' (LC4) 1/8th = 7.05@101.1; Pickup = 24.4mph
3/11/2012 @ zMAX Dragway Concord NC   58*  -219 DA (Thread)


#8 - 11.028 sec @ 122.85  mph  2012ssgtr
Fully stock on '12 OE Dunlop Summer Tires
1.602 60' (LC4) 1/8th = 7.030 @96.98 mph; Pickup = 25.87 mph   thread

#9 - 11.045 sec @ 122.14  mph  RacerX661
Fully stock on '12 OE Dunlop Summer Tires
1.663 60' (LC4) 1/8th = 7.073 @100.16 mph; Pickup = 21.98 mph   slip

In case you want to compare yours... here is my times on a 100% stock 2012 with 93 octane:

Yeah, this kind of stuff just supports my suspicions.  I really think as far as the regular models go, the '12 model year was the best performing for whatever reason.  Of course, the whole debate is kind of meaningless as most everyone does at least a Cobb AP and/or midpipe.  Once you start doing the basic bolt-on mods and a custom tune, any year model is a solid 10.9 to 11.0 car.

I agree with everything except where u mentioned the 12/13 GTR's together being faster than the 14/15's. Probably the 13's, I'm sure u know the 12's came w a 530 hp rating, not 545. But anyway, the 12's with the stock tune vs the 14/15's with the revised stock tune may be comparable. ?who knows?

I ran a best 11.08 with my '12 Premium Stock and MC did 10.97 with his '12 Black Edition I think.  Haven't heard of (and it could be i just missed it) anyone with a '14 or '15 running that quickly stock.  Regardless, it sure seems as if the newer ones got a power bump and some softer settings for a net effect of no gain.  It's a no win game for Nissan.  Keep it rough around the edges and people keep complaining about ride quality.  Address the latter and you have to sacrifice somewhere.

yeah I played the first one for about and month and enjoyed it but it got a little repetitive and I eventually lost interest..but since my XBOX ONE is  $500 paper weight collecting dust  im getting it just to have something to play on it

^this... I was actually looking forward to getting Destiny on XBOX ONE as well, but since most of our friends are still on 360 we are buying that version so we can play online with them.
