    Okay I've been having this discussion with a few different people and want to find out how most people pronounce it :confused:

    So do you say 'fortsa' or 'fourza (4za)'?



    I know I've always said 'fourza' :mhmm:

    I believe Fortsa is the correct way to pronounce it, since it's Italian.

    pronouncing it the correct way (fortsa) makes you sound like a twonk.

    Forza, because I see no 't' or 's' in this word. Forza seems to flow better anyways.

    If its Italian according to an above post, it would be most correctly said as "fordza" with a nearly mute d.
    Here in portugal we say it "forza" :p simply, no t, no s, nothing, and not Four-za, a strong "o". forza!

    I'm sure I've heard more than one game developer or whatever from turn 10 pronounce it fort-za or fort-sa.

    Many game reviewers pronounce it for-zah though.

    I've always found Fortsa/Fortza weird but it sounds nicer.

    It's just like the tomato or tomahto debate. But I say tomato. ;)

    Fortza (adding the t sound in the same way you would pronounce pizza). I remember some Italian dev mentioning that in an interview ages ago.

    That might be the correct way to say it, but it's not the popular way of saying it.
    ForTza sounds bloody awful.

    Say it (the T version) with a British accent and it sounds better. :p
