    The death rattle for GT5 is going to be a long, slow and painful one, but it's just begun.



    I sincerely hope that the Forza dev team have played GT5, and taken note of it's strengths and weaknesses!

    What would you like to see from Forza 4?

    For mine, I'd be happy with more of the same Forza format but I'd really like to see the following.

    The retention of the hillclimb stages (GT sadly misses a couple of these)

    Better steering wheel support - Not being able to use my G25 on my Xbox despite it's mutiple USB ports drove me to buying a PS3.

    Quality over quantity - I'd sooner 300 great cars than 600 ordinary ones and 400 fantastic ones.

    Not sure if i will bother i bought the last Forza Limited Edition day of release and have only really played it for about 1 hour.

    Our grand plan of having a few races never really came to light, it will have to be different next time ! :)

    Sure the video looks awesome. But I'd rather take a crap whilst doing a handstand than use that flimsy pos 360 wheel or the joypad. SUPPORT MY G25!

    I agree, lack of G25 support for the 360 is a shame. I do think though, that the 360 controller is very good for driving games. So the fact that the G25 is not supported won't stop me getting the game.

    Fanatec has a wheel that does all systems, so I don't know why Logitech didn't make the G27 able to work on the 360 also.

    I think Mircosoft are the cause here, not Logitech.

    Yes, MS have done it their own way. But Fanatec prove that it is actually possible.

    I think Fanatec have to pay a licensing fee for thier product to be compatible with the XBOX. (Which is the sticking point for Logitech) They make great gear, but it is expensive.
