2009 E3 Expo: Audi Joins Forces with XBox 360 in Forza Motorsport 3

fm3_e3_r8_13

The 2009 E3 Expo kicked off today, and along with it the announcement that Audi will be collaborating with Microsoft and Turn 10 with Forza Motorsport III. Reading through the press release, there aren’t a whole lot of details about the game itself but it does state that Turn 10 has worked with Audi engineers on the development of the 2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI model that will be featured in the game. Audi is celebrating this collaboration by hosting the AXF-24 Audi-Forza Challenge which will be held at the Audi Forum in New York City while the 24 Hours of Le Mans is being run in France.

The only bit of information probably worth caring about in this press release is that Forza Motorsport III will be available this October and will feature 400 manufacturers!

Check out more information on Forza III and the newly released demo video @ http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/game/default.htm (Which features music from one of my favorite groups, Pendulum)

Burning Up More Than Just Chipsets: Turn 10 Releases New Car DLC Pack For Forza Motorsport 2

Despite the way the podcasts sound, I’m not spending my days just hitting the refresh button on Autoblog like a rat hitting the stimulus bar in a Skinner box. I have other obsessions, and my other addiction of choice is video gaming. I’m the proud owner of both an Xbox 360 and a Playstation 3, oh, excuse me Sony, a PLAYSTATION 3, and I’ve been playing driving games since my parents bought home used copies of the original Test Drive and Test Drive 2 on the PC, complete with the California Challenge pack. I’m pretty proud of my gaming set up and I’ve spent quite a bit of money on it! Before I spend anything, I do like to read some reviews just so I know I’m not wasting my money. Coolest Gadgets review games all of the time and it’s no harm to look on there and see if there’s anything I fancy. Usually, I end up getting everything anyway and it’s worth every penny. I looked at headset, controller and gaming chair reviews, to find the ones that would give me the best gaming experience. It’s a great way to relax and wind down from a busy day. Of course, gaming chairs are great for anyone who plays games for long periods of time, for example, if you are practicing for a League of Legends match or searching the web to find somewhere to buy unranked lol accounts, having a good gaming chair can make your gaming experience all the best.
