Forza Motorsport 4: Kinect support, Top Gear tie-ins

We found out that Forza Motorsport 4 is coming during the VGAs on Saturday. Now Turn 10 sends along a few details of the upcoming Xbox 360 racer. Oh, and some temporary boxart (see above).

If you haven’t heard yet, Kinect support has been confirmed for the title. Of course, you can still use your controllers or steering wheels, but now Microsoft’s motion sensor has been added to the mix. Maybe now we’ll get to see the working ‘air driving’ we saw in the early Natal demo clips. Don’t hold your breath, though.

Also confirmed is content from the Top Gear brand. You can even see an announcement for Forza 4 by Top Gear guys on the Forza webpage. Between this and Gran Turismo, Top Gear really gets around! 

We are being told that Forza Motorsport 4 is going to be the “most expansive and vividly realistic automotive experience across any console.” That’s a massive promise. I know they can do it, though. Fall 2011 seems so far away now!
