I don't have it but iv'e been reading the forum over at VM. So far its not looking good. Teams are gone, no gifting liveries or tunes, can't save replays.... Sounds like they destroyed league racing.
 So glad i didn't buy it.

Yeah, the news is not good for league racing! It also seems you can only invite friends that your in a party with to a race lobby. That would make it nearly impossible host league wide races.

Agree with Puck. So glad I didn't sink 500+ bucks into this right off. Looks like staying with FM4 for now would be the way to go.

It sounds like an incomplete game. It's as if they had to have something for the XB1 launch but they weren't done so they put out what they had.

The game looked stunning - the new physics were impressive, along with the re-done tracks. No League Racing support? Frankly that's the only reason I play Forza. I spent time in carreer just to accumulate 'cash'. I'm about ready to pull the rip-cord - have the Xbone repacked and ready to return to Amazon. They have a 30 day policy on electronics, but I seriously doubt I'll wait that long. Sure hope there's enough die hard FM4 racers around to continue the fun.

Yeah, looks like we may have a full season of Forza 4 next year until Forza 5 is completed.

I'm saving over $800 by staying with the 360.

This does not sound promising. I held off on FM5 as I said before until a worthy wheel comes out. I'm really hoping they get FM5 sorted out and league friendly for all of us in the near future. That being said, for me, the new Xbox is freaking awesome. People can say that the whole voice thing is gimmicky and holler about privacy invasion... It's their prerogative to do so if they so choose. But I simply love the voice command features via kinect. I took the time to watch the videos on how to use all of the new features and the box is working nearly perfect for our family. No way I'm sending mine back. Forza is not the sole determining factor for owning the new xbox in our home. It is an entertainment system and we are utilizing all that it has to offer. The gaming is great, (yeah... they remembered the gaming part.) TV integration could and will be better...(no voice control over recorded TV as of now but that's on the TV provider, not Microsoft... but voice control for live TV and the TV guide is sweet!) Apps are awesome and will only get better. So.... yeah.... we love the new console and the direction that Microsoft is taking with the "all in one entertainment system". For us... It just works.

I would have to agree. I was impressed with the Xbone also. Got it set up with the Cable box, pinned a few apps, and was really getting into the voice commands. I see another purchase down the road, once things get sorted out with FM5, the wheels, and if the Project Cars guys ever decide they have a full game and make it available. Racing is the only gaming I do now - got tired of blowing stuff up, and I suck at NBA and NFL. I can see with a family how the Xbone would be a winner.

Rock on, Strum!  strumming

I have a problem with the all in one thing. I resisted bundleing my TV/Internet/phone for a long time and because of price I had to do it but it blows when one part goes out and you can't use any of the rest of it. I definatly will always keep my DVR and gaming as separate as possible.

I get that Axe. Losing TV programming would be catastrophic in our home. Fortunately, at this stage though, the Xbox and the Cable box are still two separate entities.

Glad to hear good things about the new box! Had always planned on getting it, just not sure when. Probably after the new year sometime. Hopefully by then they will have resolved some of the issues with FM5 as well.

I was going to get it right away but I am waiting to get all the feed back. I see some of you are playing FM5, can you tell me if there are leader boards or  just rival stats like Horizon???????
Also I have read some bad reviews about MF5 ???????

FM5 is legendary. Xbox one is legendary and it is only the beginning. Moved my DVR downstairs, hooked up an old cable box to the one and now have DVR's on both floors! 


All in one wa the greatest move.... PS4 will lose this battle for console supremacy in a couple years when the xbox one is fully operational.

Anyone from EZT on FM5?

 Forza Motorsport is my favorite racing series ever,but..............
Metacritic and gamerankings.com. Both sites average multiple reviews for there score.
Metacritic score 80/100.
Gamerankings.com score79.49% study 
I'm sure its very pretty and what little content is there is great. But it sounds far from legendary. 

 For what it's worth Virality,GT6 scored slightly higher on both sights. Sorry.
 
edit: Not to rub salt in your wounds, but I went over to VM's site tonight and they are simply destroying FM5 over there. It looks very bleak for any kind of league racing as far as FM5 is concerned.

We do have a few guys on XB1; Strum, Sol, Rik, DJ and Loper. I assume they're playing FM5. We haven't heard from them. I'd like to know how they're doing.

I like FM5 the visual is addictive, very nice and the new tracks are great, they really changed Silverstone I think this track is  much harder than before because the curves are much sharper.
I hope they work out the online racing for teams.
