    Now that would be a dramatic improvement, brake adjustments that actually mean something, and having to adjust the rear brake power to prevent, or encourage locking, whatever your preference may be. Let's hope that's true!

    I'm certainly curious when Kaz said that. I found this and this (which are parroted by this on PD's site and this on Sony's blog), but that is a regurgitated press release that also claims that Trial Mountain was rebuilt in the same sentence where it talks about Laguna Seca; calling into question just what "rebuilt" actually means when PD uses the word.

    It's also interesting that Laguna Seca is a "new track from the ground up" that still happens to use its GT4-era layout (which was changed soon after GT4, and immediately after Tourist Trophy, was released).

    Jesus Christ. All I said was I wonder why they don't promote it on their site or videos, that's it. A thought posted in the open forum. You then decided to try and tell me why for some reason, including that people wouldn't know what it was. I say that they wouldn't know adaptive tesselation either.

    Seriously, I don't know why you're making such a big deal out of one thought I had.

    The Admins are aware, we're just awaiting another blowup, which seems it's getting closer each day. :tdown:

    Is anyone at Bathurst 1000 today? Are PD & Turn 10 there with their booth set up with Bathurst track playable?

    No big deal. Who knows what they will highlight or promote in the days up to release? Thats all I'm saying :tup: I think itd be a little bit false advertisement if not every track is laser scanned.

    Spent the the day at Mount Panaroma. Today was first practice session for most classes - V8 Supercars, Dunlop Series, Historic, Brute Utes etc.

    Absolutely zero Polphony/GT6/Playstation presence. As mentioned above there were a few simulator rigs running an Rfactor Bathurst mod.

    However, there was a very strong Microsoft/Forza 5 presence - advertisements, Xbox sponsored corners and of course the Xbox sponsored car that will race the Bathurst 1000 on Sunday. Even the official V8 Supercar website http://www.v8supercars.com.au/ has Forza 5 front and center.

    I'm thinking (with my conspiracy hat firmly on my head) that maybe a deal for exclusivity at the race was struck between Microsoft and V8 Supercars.

    If you want to ask those at the race go to the V8 Supercar thread. There are a few members on the Mountain.

    Unfortunately I think that's true. But at the end of the day I don't think it matters - it quite obviously doesn't affect the games popularity, just look at the sales figures.

    For now, what worries me is if there's an exclusive deal between Microsoft and V8 Supercars organization .... if that is the case, we might not even be able to have the Nissan Altima V8 Supercars in GT. PD had Bathurst Demo several days before, but not in the main event :( I wonder if Microsoft paid good sum of money to make sure PD will never be there :(

    I sure don't want that to happen :( EA and Porsche is already bad enough :grumpy:

    Nah, PD/GTA are putting its drivers in the Altima next year. No way that they can have their own car banned from GT. Plus, Turn 10 are only using 2 cars (Holden and probably Ford) but, I dont know how many liveries from each. No word about Erebus in FM5.

    That's not what "machschnel" said/meant. He said "maybe a deal for exclusivity at the race was struck between Microsoft and V8 Supercars.", not for the Forza 5 game itself, although you're also right, it is possible.

    That wouldn't be any different to what us aussies have had to do so far to quench our V8 Supercar thurst in GT5. We can assume the AU V8 Supercar, Monaro and Commodore SS from GT5 will carry over onto GT6, so we can still do controlled races where all players have to use only one of the cars mentioned above. At least we are getting Bathurst, it's a start!

    Xbox and V8 Supercars have had various links for probably over 10 years, so it's not a surprise to me that Forza will get priority.

    Depends on who owns the marketing rights for those cars.

    Fairly annoyed that neither xbox or playstation have no real advertising here at Bathurst
