I'm going to pick up the Sonos Playbar because of this game. Man, this game is wrecking me.

I picked up a 4K HDR TV (still broken), an Xbox One S, and now a Sonos Playbar for games like Forza Horizon 3.... have mercy...

When Microsoft brings HDR support next year to Windows 10, will there be an HDR option then with 4K?

I heard this could be done, and that it plays right from the xbox instead of streaming.

I agree that listening to my own tunes via Groove has made the game so much better to me. I just hope I can keep my playlist without having to pay the $10 a month Groove fee.

Trying really hard to resist buying an xbox one s. I got this game for windows and it's such a pain. First after waiting overnight to download the game found out I had to update to Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, then had to update my graphics card driver, then my xbox controller driver, then finally the game would start but it always starts in Windowed mode and there was another patch I had to download. I hate Windows so much.

Groove can be a lot cheaper. They've had sales in the past. I paid $31/year when they had the Pi sale. Bought a few of those (gave away some as gifts which I regret). I've seen it on sale for $70-100/year.

I think Groove is totally worth it. all-you-can-eat music is the way to go. hear a song you like? click the download button. easy. offline. I've got GBs of songs on my phone and laptops. like a song but don't think it's worthy of download? just add it to the library but don't download it (just stream on demand).

On my desktop, I still have thousands of songs from the days when I collected or ripped MP3s from my CDs and ahem, other sources, and they just sit on my HDD. I'll occasionally play them. But the library feels small compared to what I have now.

Even at $100/year, I think it's fantastic.

I can't wait for my Sonos Playbar to arrive. It comes on the 10th. I read that the sub makes a huge difference but I can't stomach paying $1400 for the Playbar + sub. So glad Sonos can play Groove.

Funny thing is my game plays better at 4K than it does at 1080p60fps & 1080p120fps. I set my resolution at [email protected] and my FPS is around 48-60. I set it to 1080p and it drops down to 35. [email protected] my ranges from 120 down to 35 all over the place. I change it to 4K and keep it at 120 for the FPS it ranges between 55 and 120.

I never had any of the stutters that some have mentioned having.

Does your experience and levels build faster from online play (vs solo campaign play)?

I've raced a couple races online and after each, I jumped up a whole level. Seems to take 3 or 4 races in SP campaign to level up.

Just wondering if anyone else noticed this?

I was playing online last night and one guy was already level 331! lol

Depends on the race and what XP I've earned. I've gone up multiple levels sometimes in one race while playing the solo portion. And that has also happened online for me too.

Couple days ago I came across a level 600. The game was barely like 8 days old.

I'm a bit late to the FH3 party, so I apologize if this has already been addressed. I love the Groove music integration (I'm using it to stream my onedrive music, not using the subscription), but it skips all over the place. It's like I'm using an old-school car CD player without skip protection, where every bump causes a skip/jump to a different song. Is this a known issue? I have gigabit internet, so bandwidth shouldn't be an issue.

It's a known issue. It happens to me as well. Hell It has issues playing my custom soundtrack and only playing the same 9 tracks out of 300. I'm hoping they get it fixed for well. Until then I'm listening to the Epitaph station and the classical

Thanks, good to know I'm not the only one. I only have like 15 songs in my current playlist, and it plays the same 5 or 6 over and over. This feature worked flawlessly on the original Xbox!
