The past three collector's edition had the same car on the cover as the one found on the normal version so I don't really expect this to change...
isn't the FM2 CE different from normal version? an aston martin if I remember correctly.

Any chance that a collector's edition might have a different car on the cover?
I have no issues with the car (love the Italia) on the cover, just the actual design of the cover, which hopefully the CE will fix.

Any news on whether F3 DLC will carry over yet?
I imagine all the cars that were DLC will already be included in 4...

...and let's hope they didn't remove any cars. I hate when they drop cars between installments.

Bummer. Looks like I'll have to pass on FM4 then.
Anybody else and I'd think this was sarcasm.

I really excited, and curious, to see if Turn 10 actually listened to their fans and made the proper changes. All this kinect showroom stuff is nice but not if they failed to correct the many problems in FM3. With their fans being so vocal this time around, I would hate to see Turn 10 ignore the ones who put them on the map.

Anyway, we're about to find out. Dan just put on his stig helmet.

Oh, and I will be very disappointed if their entire E3 presentation is kinect showroom. Yeah, we know....you can open doors with your hands. We saw that last year. Please, for the love of god, in game racing footage/demonstration and a feature list.

I hope so man.

For me all they really need to do is:
Announce a new wheel that's equivalent to the G25/27
Revamp online multiplayer
Keep everything that made Forza 3 great

That is it. I will be a happy racer if just those 3 are done.

I seriously doubt anyone from Top Gear is there. Maybe James May at a push...
I'm sure it's just saladine being saladine. I'd love for him to be right, though. Who wouldn't?

I hear you. It just hasn't been the same without him.
