E3 2011 is right around the corner and there is only big racing sim on everyone’s mind is Forza Motorsport 4. Team 10’s Forza Motorsport 4 is an Xbox 360 exclusive racing simulation and fourth game in the Forza series, which many gamer feel is the only true rival to the Playstation’s exclusive racing simulation series, Gran Turisimo. Forza 4 will be shaking things up a little bit compared to previous games in the series since it will allow players to control the game using either a controller or Microsoft’s Kinect. When Team 10 showed the game was shown at last year’s E3 Players they demonstrated in person how players can steer the cars in races with Kinect, or Kinect’s body tracking features to take a virtual tour around and inside the hundreds of cars that will be included in the game. Players can even zoom in and expect nearly every detail of the high performance car that many people could only dream of driving one day. Just take a look at this video that shows how players can get a glimpse of everything down to the 20-inch alloy racing wheels or the Formula One inspired carbon ceramic brakes clearly visible behind the thin rims on the Ferrari 458 Italia.

Recently Larry Hyrb, or Major Nelson to anyone that really uses Xbox Live, posted a quick preview of Forza Motorsport 4’s head-tracking feature that is possible only with Kinect. Check out that video below.

One thing that GT definitely can’t match is the game’s addition of both the original BBC and the American version of Top Gear’s content that will be integrated into the game. On the same note, the famous Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear will be lending his voice as a narrator for the game. Maybe Clarkson will make an appearance at E3 to talk more about Forza 4 and his role in the game. Forza Motorsport 4 is expected to launch around October 2011.
