PGR: Fall 2001 (system launch)
PGR 2: Fall 2003
PGR 3: Fall 2005 (system launch)

PGR 4: Fall 2007

Here's hoping it build off of PGR3 the way PGR2 built off of PGR1.

PGR2 was the best in the series so far in terms of the massive amount of (and variety of) cars available, not to mention the massive amount of tracks and of course the boost in graphics.

I understand why PGR3 cut back the number of cars from PGR2 but I really enjoyed the variety available in PGR2, maybe this time they'll bring back the different car types like SUVs, Classic American muscle, economy etc...

I don't think the PGR series really poses much of a threat to GTV, that's really more Forza 2's job... PGR3 concentrates on driving technique and racing through city streets. Forza and GT are more along the lines of realistic car modifications and racing on tracks. PGR caters to the Driving enthusiast while Forza and GT cater to the Racing enthusiest...

so itll be:
forza 2 versus GT:HD
and then:
forza 3 versus GT5

im exaggerating a little - but with team 10 almost finished, and with Yamauchi making comments that suggest the true nextgen GT is VERY early in development (i was well off the mark in my OP), I could see the two being released fairly near each other.

The next GT is called GTV or Gran Turismo Vision (the V could also stand for roman numeral 5) IIRC GT:HD was just an early term they used at the E305 video demo.

So
Forza 1 (Xbox1): GT4(PS2)
Forza 2 (Xbox360): GTV(PS3)

ahh, i see my mistake............. cheers for the correction

forza2 versus GT:HD
and then:
Forza 3 versus GT6. (or the 'true' GT5....... )


- to be honest ive never really liked the game (hence my inaccuracy) - i did try to give it a chance; going through all the painstaking licencing bollocks - think I got my A licence in the first - and then never went back.....

Personally I liked PG1 (although i agree with your comments on variety, graphics etc of PG2) I just felt it had a better balance gameplaywise - for example i seemed to remember being pissed off with the way you could just turn down the difficulty on 2 (did 1 force you to play @ a certain difficulty once you started? - i can't remember - but there was a definate difference between the two games; 2 felt 'cheap'). I also liked the way that once you were a master on 1 you could master any type of car very quickly. On 2 the variation in car handling was a little unforgiving considering the small number of races you actually had to use the car for. Don't get me wrong, overall 2 was a much nicer package, but it never pulled me in for the hours that pg1 did.
I can't quite put my finger on the difference, and unfortunately my modded xbox died after 4years service a couple of months back, so i can't check either........

In anycase 2 player rallisport was the daddy. F*ck PGR ms, get your shit together wink.gif
