Well maybe that's a little unfair. Maybe. Anyway, there is news today concerning Forza Motorsport, Microsoft's answer to Sony's Gran Turismo monster that recently came spinning off track amid much embarrassment. First up, the game is set to hit across Europe in February, bringing a window of breathing space for SCEE to squeeze out its crippled monster.
And with more than a slight hint of smugness, Microsoft revealed some of the online functionality to be found in the game. As well as full online racing, MS will implement online Car Clubs for up to 100 members, all synchronised courtesy of players' Live Accounts. Microsoft states that this is to build a sense of community around the title, part of a wider emerging strategy that has seemingly come to the forefront of the firm's Live thinking.
It was further underlined that an impressive 200 vehicles will be made available from day one, with further 'content' available via Live as the months trickle by.
