    One thing I've wanted to do in console racing games for ages

    I'd like to be able to rename the AI. Mainly because I'd like to throw some of my friends names in there for when I'm racing offline. Plus I could cuss them out in real life if their AI counter part wrecked me.

    That would be cool alright, but I think SMS actually flog the AI names to contributors.
    Education is important but racing is importanter.

    They could still leave the defaults that, and leave an option to reset to defaults.

    PC offers names of AI to people who have bought into the game, so the chances of them doing this are probably non existent, but i agree its a cool idea to have the ability to change the names yourself.

    Just to clarify this, SMS did not separately 'sell' us (WMD backers) the ability to have our name in the game as an AI driver. It was one of many 'perks' of membership above a certain level. Even then, not everybody bothered - either wanting to remain private or because they never bothered taking part in the development and missed their chance. So although, technically, WMD members did 'buy' their AI name into the game, it wasn't an individual thing.

    I just wanted to clear that up because the words "flog the AI names" might give some the impression that SMS sold that as a separate thing at some point

    I haven't played Forza 6, once I found out what they were doing to Forza 5, and that my wheel (Forza branded Fanatec CSR) wasn't going to work at all on XBO but may potentially work on PS4 (which it does) I went PS4 this gen. But that sounds acceptable.

    I was gonna get an xbox1 for forza5 but decided to get a ps4 for driveclub which turned out to be a good idea because forza5 turned out be pretty shit. However when I saw the forza6 xbox1 I had to buy it and im enjoying its thoroughly especially the Porsche expansion

    Well, apparently Forza 6 (while albeit a cut down version) will be coming to PC on windows 10. As luck would have it, I just built my PC last summer (I7 4790k, 16gb ram, R9 390 8GB) with windows 10 lol. Usually once they start doing that, the full version of the game isn't too far away, so maybe Forza 7 on PC. I'll get it without a doubt.
