It's Time To Talk About Your Own Game Turn 10.

Ever since Forza 3 was announced at Microsoft's press conference we've heard nothing about their game, only how much "better" it is than Gran Turismo 5.

During said conference Turn 10 constantly described their game as the "definitive racing game this generation" - a clear knock at Polyphony Digital's franchise. Then when Polyphony Digital team members checked out a copy of Forza 3 and respectfully took notes, Turn 10 said the franchise was "stagnant".

Speaking with in a recent interview, Forza franchise director Dan Greenawalt said of Gran Turismo's godfather Yamauchi:
“That said, as a fan of the series, he [Yamauchi] hasn’t done anything for me in years. So in many ways he’s handing the baton to me. He probably doesn’t see it that way, but I do, because I believe that I’m now taking what he ignited in me as a passion, and taking it to a much, much, much broader level. I’m not saying it’s necessarily larger yet, but definitely broader, younger, older, men, women. So I’m really excited.”</blockquote>

And alas, to top it all, CNET are running a poll on "the best racing game - Forza 3 vs GT5" (how people can vote is beyond us, seeing as neither game is out) where, as directed by Turn 10's forum, cast votes for the Forza franchise will be rewarded in the distribution of a rare car in Forza 2:
“We all know which game is [sic] we’d like to see win, so go here,” he says, “and vote for Forza Motorsport 3! Afterwards, come to this thread and post a message letting us know you’ve done it. We’ll gift you a random unicorn!”</blockquote>

Does this strike anyone as being a total farce? If Turn 10 are so confident in their product, why can't they shut up about the "stagnant" Gran Turismo? We guess we'll be able to compare the products when they're both on the store shelves. You know like it should be?

Advice to those involved with the Forza franchise: shut the hell up before you embarass yourselves. We're sure your game is fine, so why put down others?
