Step aside, Gran Turismo 5. The Forza series has always been meant to knock Gran Turismo off its pedestal, and Microsoft thinks that Forza Motorsport 4 will be the game to do it (of course it does). GT 5's giant budget and five years of development are apparently no match for Microsoft and Turn 10:
"Forza Motorsport 4 will be the most expansive and vividly realistic automotive experience across any console, bringing you closer to the edge than you’ve ever been before. Through the power of Kinect, players will be able to step through the TV screen and jump into the driver’s seat while the engaging controller-based experience will let you take on the bone-jarring physics, unparalleled levels of customisation, and rosters of dream cars and tracks."
Forza 4 was announced over the weekend, and is slated for fall 2011. Can the Kinect-enabled (but also controller controlled) racer really take the throne? Can we pose questions to which there are no answers so that you'll debate them in the comments? Maybe, and yes.
