    For me, Forza 4 was an all around good Forza. Sure, it no longer provided LAN lobbies (system link), but it has a good set of on-screen in-race metrics and a high res camera, both of which disappeared from Forza 5 and 6.

    Forza 6 (for me) is way inferior to GT6, and is why I bought a PS4 which is why I bought a PSVR and why I’ll get into “Dreams”, so it’s not all bad.

    I played GT6 a lot after Forza 4 & I loved it, I thought the handling model on controller was standout. I'm currently playing Forza 6 and whilst enjoying it, it's not as good as F4 or GT6.

    I think if you bought the DLC on the 360 you should still have it on the X Bone. It worked that way for me with Horizon iirc

    Had some hope that it could drop in March GWG but sadly, it won't.

    I owned the physical copy of Horizon on the 360 and bought all the DLC for it. When I bought the digital copy for my XB1, I guess Microsoft considered it a different game since I had to start the game from scratch, buy all the DLC again, and lost all my unicorns.

    You didn't upload your save to the cloud?

    I assumed I did? I don't own that 360 anymore, so it's moot.

    Regarding this article page being broken on some phones... I think I fixed it, and I think I know why I was not able to see the problem on any of my testing devices (their screens were too wide). @Obelisk @Doomotron, how does it look for you guys now?

    Open wheel racers weren't a thing in Forza until FM5.

    They said the engine could not handle visible suspension at the time

    If only it was buyable on Microsoft Store instead of just backwards compatible!! I'd be playing this game instantly.

    It would have been those old crappy Dallaras from the IRL so it's best the game doesn't have them. :D

    GRID 2 had the DW12 but it was released in 2012.

    Should we make the petition for Microsoft and Turn Ten to renew the licenses to every DLC released for Motorsport 4 if ever it's backwards compatible again?

    Has an online petition done anything other than create junk mail?

    Some companies are out of business, changed owners or were merged with other companies. It's a legal minefield and a nightmare for everyone involved.
