Personally, I think Forza Motorsport 4 still offers the best racing experience ever created on console. Three FM games have been released on the Xbox One, and in my opinion, all three of them have not been able to deliver the authenticity or features that FM 4 offered. So, I'm asking the community to rise up and make your voices heard. If you agree that it is time for Forza Motorsport 4 to become backward compatible, then please take the opportunity to say so in this forum.

Please make Forza Motorsport 4 backward compatible.

I agree, that it should be, but I think Kinect stops it.

You obviously missed THIS thread on this subject.

There are explanations of the issues involved with such a move and it is VERY unlikely to happen.

There's no need to take a condescending tone with me. The fact of the matter, is the community wants the game to be backward compatible and it has not happened. I browsed all 5 pages of the thread you provided in your hotlink. It contains several posts, most of which date back to a couple of years ago. The only explanations for FM4 not being backward compatible are possible licensing issues and/or the game's potential to hurt sales of the latest FM installments. Those are hoops, that apparently weren't too difficult to jump through in consideration of Forza Horizon becoming backward compatible; which is especially interesting because of the soundtrack that the original FH contains. So, I'll say it again:

Please make Forza Motorsport 4 backward compatible.

Licensing issues are the reason why the DLC for the older FM games are gone off the marketplace and probably why more Forza games aren't on the Xbox One yet. Forza Horizon might be the exception because it's the newest Forza on the 360 and the licenses weren't expired yet.

I think the developers have their hands full at the moment anyway.

Phil Spencer said he hopes all 1st party titles would be backwards compatible some day.

I BEG you, Microsoft. Please make this one bc. I was never able to play this game, always dreamed about it and I'm sure you can afford the licence fees. We will appreciate that. I would pay 60$ for this game with dlc, heck, maybe even more, just please make it compatible...

Step 1: buy Xbox 360.
Step 2: buy Forza 4.
Step 3: play game.
You can switch the order of step 1 and 2 if needed.

the reason why people dont want to buy a 360 is due to space or the fact that they dont want to just buy a 360 and just waste it for forza 4

Speak for yourself lol.

I bought the 360 (used) and the Limited Collector's Edition (new sealed). The reason was purely to replay FM3, FM4 and play FH1.

Backward compatibility would be more than welcomed though, because with 4K and anti-aliasing this game would be even better. I might even buy One X purely because of that game.

And they could also fix the clubs while making it backward compatible!

We can hope I guess.

If it came back with all features intact which it won't because of the licensing issues more people would play 4 than 7. I don't think they want that lol. They should just remake 4 and call it 8 and we would all be happy. Not sure why you guys got rid of your 360's if you like Forza 4 that much. If you really want to play 4 that is the best option to buy a 360. They are like $70 refurb at Gamestop, the price of a game pretty much in the US. You can probably find them cheaper on ebay. You will be able to play Forza 1 (backwards compatible from original xbox but it doesn't run very well) through Forza 4 on it as well as a bonus. I have no space and it managed to fit it in to my entertainment center. It isn't that big a console or hey hook it up when you need to and put it away when you are not using it.

I would probably play 4 except I hate not using a wheel. Never used a pad even when I got my 1sr 360 and Forza 2. But since I have my TX on my wheelstand and switching to my Fanatec would be a PITA, it's just not worth it to play 4. I still have my 360 hooked up but never seem to use it at all. In fact I bet it has been years since it has even been turned on.

I still have a long way to reach level 50 on my 360, and I pray to God it would be backwards compatible soon. It makes me want to get the taste of Forza 7 out of my mouth.

If Turn 10 doesn't finally get back on track with Forza 8, then they absolutely need to make Forza 4 backward compatible.

I can understand the licensing issues if they wanted to start selling new digital copies for backward compatibility, but why would that effect the ability to make the game backward compatible on Xbox One for people to use their original game discs and play?

I wish that my 360 was still working.

Backwards compatibility would most likely be considered a new version (or the alternative which is that the cars would have been licensed for use on a particular console). Either way it creates issues that are not able to be side stepped and are not worth paying to renew.

I personally would like to see FM4 backcompat because it is one of my favorites I spent at least a couple of months worth of play time on FM4 and I still haven't completed it. I still have a 360 but I hardly ever get on it anymore because I'm always working and when I am home I'm on my One playing with my friends. Microsoft made FH1 backcompat. Why not FM4? It's only a year older than FH1. They have original Xbox games that can now be played on the One even. Let's bring FM4 over.

hey eveyone I agree that all forza games I GOT Forza motorsport 1, 3, 4, 6 and horizon 1, 2 on 360 and three I HAD A XBOX 360 UNTIL IT DIED FRO. RED RING OF DEATH I MISS THE PLAYING THE OTHERS BUT IF FORZA HORIZON 1 IS BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE (released 2012 so why not FM4 was released in 2011 not even 12 months later if I got my dates right) so then in theory it should not be that had remember TURN THERE IS THIS INFAMOUS SAYING.

if forza horizon can be backwards compatible and then enhanced For Xbox One X Then so should the others because those rules should be applied to all not to pick and like what people do with religions PS THAT LAST PART I WAS USING AS AN EXAMPLE WITH NO HARM OR ILINTENT APPLIED
