February 22, 2007 - Things are beginning to heat up over at the official Forza 2 website with updates coming at us from all directions. Today, Microsoft and Turn 10 unveiled a newly designed page that showcases some of the ways you can get your Forza 2 fix when you're away from your Xbox 360 this May. By logging into the site with your Live account, you'll gain access to a host of cool features to whittle away your time away from your console.
Your primary place on Forzamotorsport.net will be the "My Stats" page. As confirmed today, Forza 2 will have a Photo Mode that goes a bit further than most console games have in the past. After taking your in-game shots, you'll be able to go to the store and view up to 5 of them on the Forza 2 webpage at any given time.
In addition to being able to show off your rides, you'll also be able to check your racing stats from the leaderboards, track your upcoming tournament schedule, and keep track of your, or other's, auction house status. Forzamotorsport.net will serve as a hub to browse the thousands of auctions currently going on in the game.
Turn 10 also put out a few details on how in-depth you'll be able to go with the auctions. All of the auctions will take place using in-game money. Sorry, potential Forza 2 entrepreneurs. In addition to being able to set the price, length, and "buy now" amounts on your auction, you'll also be able to spend some of your money to make your auction one of the featured sales.
Paintjobs can be locked to their respective cars, giving designers a way to make some cash and making each car unique to its designer. Additionally, each vehicle sold will come with all of the extra purchased parts in the trunk. To top things off and make every vehicle truly unique, each ride comes will all of the car's history. That includes the total distance it has driven, time spent on the road, total winnings, lifetime repair costs, number or races it took part in, number of previous owners, amongst other things.
