PC demo punted to "after launch"...
XB demo is amazeballs. Will be buying digitally  :awe

Sold @ $70. Pre-loaded onto XB, ready to go on Win10 also!
Could get used to this Play Anywhere malarkey (if any other dev ever supported it)  :wub

No, Microsoft is the publisher, so Sony won't get to see it. XBONE or Win 10 only.

The full version is, but a lot of people are having massive stuttering issues with it.

looks like some real problems with Forza 3 for PC if trying to run 4K but fortunately I wouldn't be.

seems the game is quite demanding on the hardware if ultra settings

Hey Lunatic

I see alot of reported problems with d/loading PC version (ie. Windows 10 permissions etc., running old steering wheel hardware etc.) plus installation etc.

Do you know if they intend to sell a DVD version of this (such as at EB Games or JB HI FI)?

Are there any particular forums around for good support?

Four day weekend North Coast NSW, am wrecked  :shiner
Am looking forward to going back to work - for a sleep!

Will be having micro-naps behind the virtual wheel later this arvo  :hahah

I thought I'd try installing the PC version, but I'm at bare minimum CPU and VPU be like "DirectX 12; heard of it?"
Not happening on the old card - four generations from minimum and PC is only 3 years old...  :sad1

those recommended specs are crazy! is that just to get 4K video? Does simple HD require that?

I saw that it has a 30fps (locked) mode which is less demanding on hardware.

Sadly, I don't think there are any DVD plans - and the download issues seem to be a universal thing with downloading large applications from the Windows store. I havn't gone looking for support, so I'm not sure what the quality is like. You could always try the official Forza forums: http://forums.forzamotorsport.net/
