Sometimes marketing and P&D forget to talk to one another....

We have had in the past some Marketing Manager on Xbox talking about the exciting exclusives coming to X1 near launch and listing PS4 exclusives as the best one.

Yeah, I remember that snafu!

That does come off as pretty crap. Not a big deal really. I take umbrage with the fact it was shown in the original Forza 7 footage to be something that it clearly isn't, but again, whatever. GT Sport clearly has the presentation edge on Forza 7.

*inserts lootbox jab at Forza 7.

There.



The game has weather conditions, 700 cars, beautiful graphics, a nice decent chase cam... but... it doesn't have pit crews... let's create a fuss about the later and make a thread about it... how hilarious!

How about not put it in trailer with "game footage"?

They got a lot of flack for it.

You are right on this one... though did you look at the trailer and jumped of joy when you saw the pit crew? Personnaly I got excited when I saw the dynamic weather... but yeah to each his own.

I didn't watch the trailer when it was originally shown, and I've no real interest in forza 7 so my opinions not really important, but to me seeing it now versus how it looks in the retail game, I would question what else has been cut, scaled back or rushed as well.

I'm not saying more has been, and frankly I've no idea if it has or not, but if something they were clearly proud of (showed it twice on two different cars) got scaled back so dramatically, it seems a relatively safe bet that it can't have been the only thing that was.

That's how I see it, anyway.

It's unfortunate that it's launching so close to gt sport because the fan bases of both are at loggerheads, fans of forza are on the defensive and overlooking such things as unimportant in the process so gt fanbase has less to hit them over the head with, had gt sport been given a 2018 release date i honestly think a lot of forza fans would be more openly disappointed with this particular release, which is the sort of feedback turn 10 need to hear so the quality of the franchise doesn't go downhill.

Sure, the pitstop is no dealbreaker, it's just funny thing they cut. But I don't think that saved them many resources, but perhaps the way it would load memory or processors were incompatible with the other things they planned.

The game is great. You have a lot of impressions here and there and there's a demo. Removing stuff you were looking into in a trailer is never a nice thing to do. I don't know what they could have removed but it's already a great game.
