lol 50.

On a side note, I actually thought Horizon 2 was 60 FPS the first day I had it, because of how fluid the movement felt in cockpit mode. Had no idea it was 30 FPS. I felt so ashamed. I'm really excited for this game though. I kind of felt the first Forza on X1 was lacking. So I expect this one to be more fleshed out, and feel like an overall package.

"wet weather" scares me. wet weather as in a light shower w/ a few puddles? or wet weather as in full blown rainstorms, snow, etc?

Forza 5 shipped with 200 or so cars, 450 is nice. And like all the other Forza games, this is day one for me.

Now the question that remains is it like GT where you can have 24h cycle or like the new GRID where its fixed day or night,
Good point. They would have probably mentioned it if it was dynamic change for the time of day, so I assume it's a fixed selection. Which isn't too bad, brings a bit more "variety" into the races nonetheless.

Yeah same. I've been using my Wii U 24/7 because Splatoon is dominating my life, and then PC/PS4 sometimes, but I want a reason to get pulled back to X1. Their fall lineup will def do that. Forza is going to be incredible, I can feel it.

I didn't even bother with Forza 5 cause I got my xbone kinda late. I cannot wait for this and GT7.

Horizon 2 at 30fps is pretty much pseudo-60 w/ that motion blur. No doubt T10 can make 50fps looks amazing.
Not sure if serious

The problem is the TV refreshes at 60 hz. If they pushed a 50 fps game through 60 hz TV it would stutter, which isn't pleasant. It's likely a typo, and as this isn't an official press release I wouldn't read too much into stuff like that. The site is ridden with typos everywhere.
