Forza Motorsport 3 four months away

Despite the fact my Xbox 360 has been resting-in-pieces in a wooden box under my TV since it suddenly red-ringed itself on me out of warranty in February [ironically, a loaner PS3 sits atop that wooden box for now (no joke!)], today I’m excited about returning to XBL as the rumour veil is lifted off Forza Motorsport 3 at E3 2009 in L.A.

Only hours ago, Microsoft made the official announcement during a two-hour press conference that was chock full of other nuggets, including news that Facebook, Twitter, and a revamped Netflix coming to Xbox Live along with other improvements. The Beattles Rock Band also sounds likes fun, but since playing nished playing MGS4 on the Playstation 3 and loved it so much, I’m now excited this Sony gaming series is coming to the 360 in the form of Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

Getting back to the meat and potatoes of this post, site has got new digs with the official FM3 news. The will be 400 cars from 50 different manufacturers all fully tunable, 100 tracks existing and new, a in-car cockpit view, new stunning graphics engine, video replay editor and full roll-over crashes.

Enough already. I can tell you’re excited… the official Forza Motorsport 3 Fact Sheet after the jump. Enjoy and see you online soon!

I’ve been playing a little bit of Gran Turismo Prologue lately, which is a retail demo for the franchise’s upcoming GT5 release, and honestly, with today’s FM3 announcement, I’m really confident in saying that FM3 will be far superior to anything Polyphony Digital has shown. I can’t wait to get a new 360 and rip up all those tracks in FM3.
