Not to call anyone out...but I'm calling someone out. In an earlier story about Forza 3's soundtrack, someone (don't hate me!) said of the game:

Isn't this that racing game that was extremely over hyped and no one bought it?

No. That's wrong. You must be thinking of some other high-profile racing game. Forza Motorsport 3, the racing game we gave our Editor's Choice award to, is doing just fine. In fact, better than fine. In just one month's time, the game has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

And, Mr. Someone, not only are they buying it, but they're playing the everloving sh*t out of it. Microsoft says that 6.6 million man hours have been spent playing the game since release. It totals up to 64 million connected sessions and  over 590 million miles driven in the game to date.

In poor taste to call out a reader? Maybe. It's just that this one comment was so wrong that we felt the need to say something. Forza 3 is great. Whatever beef you have should be put aside to try it. And this is coming from a Gran Turismo guy!

[Update: Xbox top dog Aaron Greenberg adds some impressive stats in his Twitter feed for Forza 3's performance: "$18.7 billion spent LTD on Storefront, >4M auction bids, 1.5M items 4 sale." Wow.]

This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word 'social' too much

Okay, maybe the snarky headline was a bit mean but the devs behind Forza Horizon 2 are really making sure that you know that the game is social and connected. Aside from those buzzwords, what does that actually mean in terms...more

The new Forza Horizon 2 cars are mostly vehicles you'll never drive in real life

The new batch of cars revealed for Forza Horizon 2 brings about a bit of a staunch reminder that open-world racing games aren't all that realistic. Let's face it -- there's a slim chance you'll ever be behind the wheel o...more

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more
