Unsure at this time.  I have the Xbone and FM5 preordered but I am trying to talk myself out of needing the Xbone at launch.  I am getting more and more into iRacing and thus rekindling my appreciation for PC games.  As a result I am starting to save some cash to build a new rig in anticipation of F1 2013 and Project Cars.  This goal will be easier to accomplish with the Xbone off the table.

As I get more into iRacing and appreciating how well the PC sims take advantage of my Fanatec gear, which we know isn't "out of the box" compatible with the Xbone, the less enthusiastic I am about making FM my primary racing fix.  I currently view FM5 as my "sit on the couch with a gamepad" racing game and I'm not sure how badly I need that.

Nub...  I'm going to give iRacing a go...  Been messing around with various PC sims to....  RFactor 2 (have not played yet), RaceRoom (not impressed) and Simaceway (not bad, but not great either)....

It would be a shitty move for them to not make the Fanatec Wheels compatable...  If it's not, I may cancel my preorder as well...  I've invested over $500 in my wheel, and to not be able to use it on the Xbox One would kill it for me..

There is a huge gap between what I've seen on PC and what Forza has done.  Turn10 has a mission statement of creating a game for "car lovers" and, through that, to turn gamers into car lovers and car lovers into gamers.

They do an exceptional job at this.  It worked on me.

Every PC Sim I've tried so far has been all about the racing experience.  This isn't a bad thing!  However, having played FM4 so much I've definitely noticed the...absence.  Car selections are much weaker, customization options are less than, other "car lover-ish" features (like autovista & Clarkson's voice) aren't there.

Again, not a huge impact on fun factor, but...yeah.

so I pre-ordered  my stuff yesterday.  Very excited.  Never preordered anything before. I figured with all this overtime I've been doing lately that I deserved a little treat. 2 more weeks and the 12s  should be over!
