Forza motorsport title update

Post by sempeR on Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:46 am

Taken from Major Nelson

Original version here.


I wanted to let you know that later today a required Xbox One system update will become available. This update works a little bit differently than what fans are used to on Xbox 360. Here’s what you can expect:


A. If you are using the Xbox One “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), your console automatically checks for updates when you turn it off. Once we make the update available (on Tuesday, December 10th, 5:00 PM PT) this means the following will happen:

Your console will automatically download the update after you turn it off. Once the update has been downloaded in the background, your console will power completely down. Please note: You will need to manually power your console back on after the update has been downloaded. Because the update will power your console completely down, the “Xbox On” voice command won’t be available until after the update is fully installed.
When you turn the console on you’ll see the update being applied. After that, your Xbox One will reboot. You’ll know the update is installing when you see the Xbox logo on the green background (like at the top of this post.) This can take anywhere from 2-5 minutes. Once the update has finished installing, you’ll boot to the Home screen and you’re all set.
Don’t worry, if you are out of town for the holidays, you console also does regular checks for updates and will download it in the background even if you have not used you Xbox One in a couple of days.
B. If you are not using the Xbox One “Instant On” feature, you will be required to download and apply this update after Thursday, December 12th at 2:00 AM PT.

This update addresses the following:

Addresses SmartGlass issues for some users when coming in and out of connected standby
Addresses multiplayer issues for some users when re-joining games
Addresses issues with inconsistent notifications for some users
Addresses dashboard performance for some users
Offers improvements for Xbox One’s TV, system update, and content update services for scaling over time
Updated wireless networking driver to improve connectivity issues for some users
We’ve got quite a few updates planned for the next year based on the community feedback we’ve been seeing, and I’ll have details on those in the future.

Thanks and I’ll see you online.

Drag racing, online shenanigans like Tag and cheaper cars plus bigger payouts.

Looks great but am I the only one who is not happy with the cheaper cars? A 50% off weekend here and there is great but I think the cars are priced right as they are. The bigger payouts from racing and Drivatars is all that is needed so the cars will be more affordable with all the extra cash you have. To me the Lotus F1 and Ferrari GTO are like the Unicorns and with a 6mil price tag they can still be bought.

Looks like drag racing will be on the Top Gear runway with up to 16 players. Will come in very handy to help test out cars for multi car series. Wonder if they scanned in Yas Marina's strip that runs along side the F1 track?...

I'm not happy about it either and I haven't even played the game yet. By the looks of it they have listened to all the whiners that couldn't get the Lotus within the first 5 minutes of playtime  Mad

If they make money as easy to get as in fm4 they may as well make everything free.


Welcome to Forza 5 - Where it is 'ok' to come 2nd or 3rd!

What would be better IMO.
* One 4 day discount weekend each month. up to 50% off all cars.
* 48 hour single manufacturer discount. Random times with even bigger discounts like a 2mil credit Lotus E21 or a 1000 credit Civic.

Still offers a challenge, gets players on the game ready for the bargains.

Cheap cars all the time? Too easy for the noobs. Then they will complain again when their pocket change runs out and they have to race to buy the next car.

Painters do not have to worry about purchasing cars any more. You can paint every car in the game without owning any. Just the body kits and rims is all that is missed. As for the race cars, best thing ever! GT cars, own just the one you want and paint all the others! And great way to find glitches before purchase.
