Jeremy Clarkson is coming to an Xbox near you. The Top Gear presenter has reportedly joined forces with Turn 10 Studios to lend his voice and automotive knowledge to the company's upcoming Forza 4 video game.
There's a portion of Forza 4 called AutoVista, which is an in-game showroom where players can examine cars in great detail. Clarkson provides commentary in this area of the game, giving players his voiced-over viewpoint on specific cars.

We can only hope and assume that the commentary will include some of Jezza's trademark catchphrases like "...in the world." Regardless, adding Clarkson only rounds out the amount of Top Gear goodies found in the new game, all of which should be enough to have at least a few Sony PS3 owners considering making the switch to Microsoft's Xbox 360.

      This is beyond awesome. I was a die hard Gran Turismo fan, and had every single version since the first back when it came out. I didn't take Forza seriously until FM3. Ever since that game, I can't play the GT series and still have fun, it is boring to drive 20 different versions of the same Civic. Driving simulator: GT5 > FM3 All around fun and mostly realistic FM3 > GT5 I can't wait for the release date.

        It really is a pity. I'm hardcore GT fan, but for the hype they where setting that game and the time spent, it didn't deliver. It was a great car game and would have been amazing if it was by some yet unknown, but we are talking about GT here. Also looking at buying Forza. Never owned the previous games, but have tested them. Forza 4 for what i have seen looks amazing.

          GT5 has all the signatures of a chaotic development. Wildly variable quality - some of the standard cars have near premium levels of polish, some look like they're PS2 quality, not to mention the challenges which range from "fun" to "I don't think they playtested this" - some clearly rushed design choices and a wide selection of bugs and delays. I wish we could find out what was going on at Polyphony during that time, it might explain a lot.

        I got both and 100% agree with you. I play FM3 at least 50 times as much! I got addicted to doing online drag racing and my own tunes.... a couple of months ago i got all fixed up with the design etc... there is always something new to do!

        I actually like all the different variants of Silvias/Civics. It makes hunting for used cars more enjoyable. That said, hated the delineation between premium and standard cars. The difference in quality was so startling that basically I stuck with all the premium cars. GT5 feels much more real (except the joke that is damage modeling). FM3 was a better game. Really wish Turn10 would stop being lazy and remodel some of the cars though. They keep reusing some of the same flawed models from Forza 1, but with higher polygonal count. Compare a R32 GT-R in FM3 and GT5, and the difference in quality is staggering.

        I'm with you, however I have never liked the way Forza feels compared to GT. Hopefully they've got it right this time. On top of that, Micro$oft won't allow the use of Logitech wheels which ruins it for me. I don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on a Fanatec wheel, so I'll just have to make do with my DFGT and GT5 for now. FM4 release is in October if I'm not mistaken.

      I'm sorry but this has been known for months. They even have footage of autovista with Clarkson talking about the Enzo.

      First and foremost, I'm a GT fan. It started back with GT3 and I was hooked. I currently have a wheel stand and a Logitech G37 wheel (the H-pattern shifter with the working clutch is just AWESOME). BUT Forza 4 is really starting to turn my head. The tracks, the cars, and the game modes really appeal to me. The only downer really is the wheel options. There are none and, I'm sorry, but my G37 wheel is better than the "why" proprietary XBox wheel. But, besides that, I still think Forza 4 is looking to be one heck of a game. Don't get me wrong; I still like GT5, but it seems so much like an unfinished game the more I play it. It's not bad, it's just like "man, GT5 is awesome. I can't wait till the complete game comes out". Supposedly there is a MAJOR update for GT5 coming in the near future, but I'll believe it when I see proof.

      what do you mean "should be enough to have at least a few Sony PS3 owners considering making the switch to Microsoft's Xbox 360." what kind of peasant only plays one system these days?

        The kind of peasant who has grown up, left their parents' basement and has real world responsibilities.

      Please correct the spelling of Xbox in the first sentence. It's a capital "X", followed by an all lowercase "box". As for the news, effing fantastic!! :D

      old but nonetheless.... the only reason to buy a 360 for me.

      Clarkson is great and all, but a lot of his humor is because of his snarky personality... I can't imagine that coming off well in a videogame.

          Well usually that involved some kind of interaction - be it with his co-workers (Hamster or Captain Slow), or with the car he's driving while he talks to the camera. Obviously everything he is going to say for this game is going to be a scripted canned response to some imaginary event in the game and repeated over and over again every time you play the game. No matter how funny a joke is, it will get older the 20th, 50th or 100th time you play the game.

        exactly.."don't buy this car, its made in Mexico." can you image a 5 year old asking their parents, "whats wrong with Mexico daddy?"

          I really hope no 5 year old is spoiled enough to have an XBox 360 and Forza, but if it's for dad, then thats a different matter
