Ooooppppsss!

I have finally done the dirty deed. I have traded in my faulty PS3 (which they tested and was ok APPARENTLY Suspect )

I traded in all my games and a few for the Wii. I could not believe some of the prices.

F1 06 - £18.00 (yes that is £18.00 and most valuable game i had)

So i now have a GAME voucher for £283.00. So i feel i am going to be getting an X-Box 360.

I have had a look at some reviews, but any ideas what is good for racing? I don't mind games like MGS but i need to get into it ASAP. I quite like the look of Gears of War.

What should i get?

Any advice welcome.

Stay away from any of the Need for speeds apart from the new one coming out called Shift. Cool

There is Forza 2 like Motorracingp mentioned. Should be going cheap with Forza 3 on the way,
Plus my favourites are

Forza 2
V8 Superstars
Baja edge of control (There is 2 Baja games but aviod the other one)
I suppose Grid if you can pick it up for £1 I wouldn't pay more then that Laughing

and of course Race pro by Simbin, But expect big disapointment if you expect it to be anything like GTR etc

There is no racing games available on consoles which has the full simulation like GTR2 so be warned lol!

Grid is fun game when you have an Audi R10 TDI and you have brilliant races thats all because its the best car on the game

I would say get undercover but only for the storyline it was interesting but you could always google the Cut sense Laughing

M8, sorry to hear that your PS3 has been causing you trouble. Forza 2 is well worth buying, Iím not an X-Box person but I had loads of fun playing Forza in a local games retailer. The gameplay is fairly realistic and is a lot of fun.

Consider a racing game called ĎMX vs ATV Untamedí too, on 360. Itís a dirt game and is not particularly realistic, but it is loads of fun. Also, you must get V8 Superstars, its a brilliant game (on PS3 and 360) - this game can keep you entertained for a while. NFS Shift does will not be released for a while yet. Good luck buying!

That Mx V ATV untamed has just been released on the new xbox live update As a full downloadable game, But it costs £19.99. I've always fancied it but never got round to buying it. I will find it cheaper then that though. Laughing

Also if you fancy a bit of 2 wheel action don't forget the bike games SBK08/SBK09 or Moto GP 08.

Oh and I will be getting a PS3 soon lol!

I am just waiting for it to be reduced in price again. It just got reduced to £287 with 3 games, But hopefully it should get reduced even more so just hanging on. It was £321.

I love getting bargains. I am just waiting for cameras to be reduced.

Forza 2 only allows 8 cars on track. So it's basically You and 7 computer cars. Forza 3is going to be the same I think.
But you do get to do custom paint jobs on them. Forza 3 is going to be even better for that.

GT has 6 cars on track. Not sure what GT5 will have.

I've seen the footage with Nascar but weither it will have 16 cars on track is another matter.

On a lighter note, Anyone tried the Trails demo on xbox live?.

gt4 rpomisied 20, there was a video and everything and then 6 as usual, i'll wai and see, thank you both of you.

there one other question i've been meaning to ask, the difficult part of gt4 is the 24 hour races, as they have no save option, it means putting your life on hold for a whole weekend for a computer game, does forza have saves and similar long races?

GT4 24hour races is an interesting bit because on other forum he did a 24hour over 2 week period he had his PS2 on for 2 weeks Exclamation Exclamation

I did 24hour race by the computer B spec mode. Very Happy

Looks like Forza 3 will have 400 cars.

And GT5 will have more than 10 cars on track, it did on Prologue

I did the same but made sure i was far enough ahead and then pitted to do B-Spec whilst i slept. Then woke up and played on, then back to bed just like a 24 hour race

I am hoping GT5 is really good, I am hoping for lots of race cars and good tracks plus where you can create your own race like or laps with cars you want in.

Whats this concern about GT5 having 6 cars? GT5 Prologue is GT5, in essence and that had 16 cars.

As for the endurance mode on GT4, playing on B-Spec is the only reasonable alternative to saving it sadly. Although be careful with B-Spec mode, in a 24-hour race on the Nordschleife I once used an Audi R8 and on badly worn tyres it would go off a lot. I would keep on eye on it, but the benefits are so great.

Mine went off at Le mans nearly every lap stayed at the barrier for a few about 5seconds every lap.

I love the Laguna seca race 500miles i think. Brilliant Very Happy

That's pretty cool if you can get 16 cars on GT5. I may not be a fan of it but I would much prefer racing against 15 other cars then just 7.

That is why you need a PC. You could have 55 cars on track on a console game, But everything else about the game is going to be so poor as everything will be taken up by the cars. It wouldn't even be worth making.

yes m8 got it today from Slough.

Got an Elite with Gears Of War 2 and Halo Wars.

Also bought Nascar 08 and Race Pro, along with what i bought the other day Command & Conquer/Gears Of War 1 and Forz 2.

So got enough to keep me going for a bit.
