Turn 10 on Forza 3: ‘No game competes with us’

Forza Motorsport 3 game director Dan Greenwalt is extremely proud of his game. Dan Greenwalt believes that Forza 3 has surpassed all of the competition, most notably Gran Turismo franchise. When asked how Forza is positioned against other racing franchise like Need for Speed and the legendary Gran Turismo, Greenwalt had some not very nice words for those franchise.

“I’m in this industry because of Gran Turismo, let’s just be frank,” said Greenwalt. He then explained that Gran Turismo inspired his first “stressful” car purchase, a Mitsubishi 3000GT, saying that is was “a great car in that game, and I thought ‘Oh my God, if I’m ever going to have a car, that’s the car that I want.’” Then things got ugly.

“So, props to Kazunori Yamauchi-san and the PS1 team,” said Greenwalt. “That said,” he continued, “I feel that he’s passed us the baton. Perhaps he hasn’t meant to, but we have taken the genre to new levels and they’ve stopped evolving the genre. So again, tremendous respect to him, but I’d say the differentiator is they’re old school.” He conclued, “The emperor’s naked, and I don’t want to, you know, I don’t want to slap him around, but no game competes [with] us right now.”

A bold claim to make, especially considering the fact that neither Forza 3 nor Gran Turismo 5 have actually released yet. Also they haven’t been much gameplay release of both games. Tell us what you think below.

    It is true that both games aren’t released yet. So no true comparison can be made. It’s also true that Forza’s game engine and as a game in whole is better and deeper than GT’s. It’s very interesting to know that some guys from Polyphony Digital came at E3 to the Microsoft booth to check out Turn 10’s Forza 3 game and took notes, asked questions and test drove their comprtitions game themselves. Seems to me they know they got homework to do.
