So excited, I just bought a 2nd Xbox. Just 3 weeks away. I won't be the one to say this looks better than GT5, but it looks *at least* as good and we know the physics engine is superior. I'm ready to get my race on!

(be sure to watch at full 1080p)

i was about to start an official NAGTROC forza thread next week...but lets just make this one it...

im ready just need to figure out what wheel to get before i get too excited... i cant even play racing games one lap with a controller, its pointless

i know the fanatec forza wheel is coming soon for $249 but pedals are $149 more not sure i want to put $400 into as i just put that much into my cockpit

but there is also a new xbox licensed wheel by madcatz for $249... that has pedals

madcatz usually makes POS cheap wheels but this one looks a bit more higher end...so it might be an option...

lol.... I'm the other way, Matt. I suppose I could play with a wheel and pedals but always use the controller because I never know when I may play at someone else's house. And since I would not always have my steering wheel with me, I'd be at a severe handicap if that was the only way I played. At least with the controller, its the same no matter whose system I'm on.

btw, I've preordered through GameStop. Should we put a list of gamer tags in the first post for those wanting to do FM4 on Live???

I honestly think this game will be pointless without a proper steering wheel. If there is nothing close to the G27, I don't think this game will be that much fun. But the graphics are insane!

i mean the fanatec wheel is as good or better than the G27 ...but again its 249 + 149 for the pedals and a extra 59 if you want a shifter...

the biggest issue i see with madcatz is its not 900 degrees

I think I'm just going to save up for the Fanatec. I've played GT5 on the G27 and it's amazing; so anything below a Fanatec to me would be worth Forza 4. What do you guys think is better the GT2 wheel or the Crs?

probably the CRS as it was made specifically for forza4.... plus im not big on a porsche branded wheel..... nothing wrong with it but i dont own a porsche and its not really my thing

i wish the CSR pedals were available.... right now only the elite ones are out.... and i got to thinking worst case its only 149 more so in the long run 150 bucks is not a big deal if your stuck with a lesser wheel..

so on second thought im gonna get the CSR.... its gonna be 421 shipped to my house..... unless the CSR pedals come out in the next week or so...

so its a bit pricey but i'll live

how much cheaper do you guys think the CSR pedals will be maybe $50? but from what im reading it looks like they wont be out in time for the launch....so i might have to get the elites

Yah I think I'm going to get the CSR, but wait till a week after Forza 4 comes out to see if a cheaper set of pedals come out. Does the CSR come with paddle shift or do you have to buy it separately, because I know you have to get the stick shift separate?

Hey, gang... I've added gamertags people have listed in this thread to the first post. I'll try to keep that updated as others mention theirs. If I miss you, you can also send me a PM to remind me to add yours.
Guessing I'm gonna get my ass handed to me since I will probably not buy a steering wheel and pedals, but will still be fun to race real people instead of the computer.

I get how you can steer and look with Kinect, but how does it sense throttle/brake inputs????

yeah paddle is included



shifter its like $59 extra but i just use the paddles anyway so i dont need it

the thing about waiting is i sort of want to preorder is as its guaranteed delivery before the 15th... so worst case only 3-4 days after the game launch...
