Description

Recently there was a photo floating around of a triple screen (plus mini-LCD rearview mirror) setup running Forza 2. Some suspected it was Photoshopped, we weren't entirely sure but we like to get to the bottom of things, and since Hogzilla II had already been busted we ran over to get the story.

The short version is yes, Forza 2 can drive multiple displays, and yes, it's absolutely amazing. The longer story is that the Forza network coding engineer, Aaron Ogus, is also a professional race car driver, and he holds a scrutiny of console driving games that goes beyond that of your average recliner gamer. So strap in for the ride and see why Forza 2 is Aaron's favorite driving game yet.

      That is seriously awesome.  I want one of those rearview monitors - the single screen option is only available in bumbercamera mode, and that is kind of lame.  I'm more likely to adopt Larry's decision and utilize multiple monitors in flight simulator.  I've always been more of a pilot than a driver.

      Where was this filmed anyway?

      PUBLISH THE SPECS!!!!!

      for the love of Pete, tell us at least a clue about how to build that MAGNIFICENT rig!!!

      He mentioned Ferrari 335 Challenge. I have spent "days in the cage." there, it is one of the most beautiful (if not exactly accurate) simulators ever. My wife and I used to go to Las Vegas -- she would park in the casinos and I would go to GameWorks and spend 4 to 8 hours at Suzuka in the F335 challenge prison Smiley

      I was actually able to play that back in March.  It is one of the best race setups you will ever be in.  Not only is the 4 screen setup sweet, the audio and subwoofers they have...it just makes it amazing.
