Xbox One Day One Edition to also come bundled with Forza Motorsport 5?

FIFA 14 may not be the only free game offered to Xbox One Day One Edition consoles. A copy of Forza Motorsport 5 may also come bundled in with the console, judging by a pulled listing at GAME.

GAME posted an image showing the Xbox One Day One Edition appearing to be bundled "with Forza Motorsport 5" on its website soon after Xbox One's release date announcement earlier this afternoon.

But the image was quickly removed, only to be replaced by a standard Xbox One 'Get In The Queue' graphic. (Forza Motorsport 5, Xbox One)

2 free games is a great deal...

... however, I really hate the whole DLC-milking thing they've got going on with the Forza games, which seems to get worse with each new release, so I haven't bothered picking up Forza 4 or Horizon, until they release a 'complete' version. Which I doubt will happen.

More and more it feels like nowadays you buy half a game for full price, and are then expected to buy the rest through DLC.

Not something I'm gonna be a part of.

Don't know what you mean by dlc milking. Forza 4 and Forza Horizon have a lot of content without dlc. Some of the cars have to be installed off of 2nd disc though. (DVD ROM not big enough for all of content)

They release car packs throughout games lifecycle. No different than any game's dlc, but Forza still gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

Yeah but most look like PS2 cars.
Yi-Long  +   320d ago
I really don't care about the insane amount of cars in these games TBH.

I just think it's a waste of time and effort to spend all that energy on creating new cars which they can sell as DLC, while what I really want is more TRACKS. Original cool fun stunning tracks.

And I don't mean as DLC. I mean that they should just finish a game, release it, and start work on their next game with all their effort. And focus on as many TRACKS as possible.

I love Forza's gameplay and all that, but the DLC really just puts me off.

I don't think its a coincidence Microsoft are now wanting to bundle different free games with Xbox one for launch.

Its a great move for the consumer, but I suspect its another reactionary move isn't it after looking at the pre order number comparisons versus main rival?

Sony don't seem to feel the need to do any sort of deal or bundle on PS4. I spose if you have such a hot demand then you don't need to as people will just pay up....

@ComputerSaysNo:

PS4 is 100 bucks cheaper, so people can make their own bundles for the price it would cost to buy an inferior Xbox One.

Of course the PS4 is selling much much better.

Plus Sony already announced Killzone + extra controller + camera bundle, for 499 euro. Which is less than the Xbox One price.
http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

Oh, and when you've got PSN+, you'll already get free games waiting for you, like Drive Club. And even when you're not a +member, there will be many F2P games available for the PS4.

So yeah, of course MS has to come up with new ways to lure in more customers, cause right now, it just makes a whole lot more sense for many people to buy a PS4. It offers way more value for money, no NSA spying, and Sony seems a bit less interested in GREED, and more focussed on just giving gamers what they want (games), with value for money.

@Septic:

Because they're making a bundle that should entice me to buy their product, and yet the whole Forza business-model with all the DLS is actually what KEEPS me from buying it.

Both the game, as well as the console.

About complaining about getting a 'free' game: It's only half a game when you have to buy the rest of the content as DLC, and it's still 100 bucks more expensive than the PS4, which means for that money I can make my own 'PS4-Bundle'.

Same thing with the FIFA Bundle: I can get a PS4 and FIFA14 for less than the price of the XB0-bundle.
Septic  +   320d ago
@Yi-Long

First of all, what's the NSA nonsense got to do with it? That point is extremely juvenile espeically considering you can detach the Kinect from the console.

Secondly:

" It's only half a game when you have to buy the rest of the content as DLC"

Half a game? Where are you getting this from? Have you even played the Forza games? They are proper fully fledged games...not broken ones released early and then patched numerous times later on (ring a bell?).

Stop exaggerating how Forza is dependent on its DLC. The past games have shown continued DLC support but the games themselves have always been impressive with decent content.

This just reeks as a poor attempt by you to deflect the good news here, for whatever reason. The simple fact is, you're getting Forza for free in the UK. That's it.

Yi-Long

I understand where your coming from but in the case of forza the contet packs are normally stuff that is constantly being developed. Not like other games where the content is already on the disc and the bastards charge more to unlock.

In the case of forza the content packs are for real petrol heads who want the latest motors and some classics from time to time, but the game that ships on disc is more than enough for most.

Your not getting a 'lite' or watered down version. Your getting everything that has been developed till the time the game goes to print.

My biggest gripe of the current gen was the loss of cheat codes and cool Easter eggs. I hate the fact that things that once could be unlocked by completing the game on harder difficulties etc. now we hae to pay for all the extra tat that should have been free. Costumes, weapons, hidden missions, these almost always fall under the category of 'downloadable content' which you buy then realise by the download filesize that the bloody item was already on your disc!

That's what I ain't got time for.

P.S. the saying goes... Don't look a gift horse in the mouth, but based on your distain for forza even though it could be free, compare it to drive club PS+ edition, your gonna be over the moon with how generous they are going to be.

It's called being taken for granted. I've started to see a shift in support for the Xbox over the last few weeks on this site. There are more positive articles for the Xbox each week and the agree/disagree ratio and positive comments is becoming more even. A month ago you couldn't find a positive comment for Xbox and if you did there was a 1 to 20 ratio of agree/disagree. There is a lot of time left in this race so don't count them out yet.

does the plasyattion 4 include kenect?

no

so that is why the xbox 1 is 100 dollars more. regardless of your opinion on kenect, the fact is that it is included and it has value.
H0RSE  +   321d ago
The playstation being cheaper only matters if a person is looking for any console to buy and price is strong deciding factor. I saw people use your same logic when Fifa was announced to be bundled, and I see it hasn't failed with Forza as well... However, the extra catch here is that you can't buy Forza for PS4, so where is your argument now?

Your entire argument is based around price, but a lot of times, that doesn't even matter. It's like buying a burger vs buying a burger, drink, fries, and dessert for a lower price because you like the taste of the first burger better - If someone wants something, they will buy it, regardless of price or features. On the same note, if the roles were switched, and MS was cheaper than PS4 and boasting the higher numbers, something tells me you would still be buying a PS4 anyway.

There also comes the issue of quality of accessories, in this case the PS camera vs Kinect. Sure, you buy a PS camera for cheaper, but it's also an inferior device in comparison.

I have absolutely no interest at all in owning a PS4, since the factors I look for in a console, PS4 delivers none of them, so if (how you put it) "paying more and getting less" is what I need to do to get the console that delivers the experience(s) I'm looking for, so be it.

It's not really "value" if the games/services you get aren't the ones you want, which was kinda my initial point... Actually, I have seen the free games offered with both XBL Games with Gold and PS+, and none of them really interest me at all. I really don't see the whole free game aspect as value unless I can actually choose which games I want, otherwise it's little more than a good-natured gesture - a "thanks, but no thanks." As for the services themselves, even after the extensive updates/changes PS went through, I still see XBL as the better service.

If it comes with a game. And kinect how is 40 too much? You kids are out of control!

And i dont know about you but connecting xb1 to my media and my tv tv tv tv.. Making everything so easy is worth the extra 40..

Ps4. Is not all that much more powerful than the xb1 and the xbox does more out of the box! Not only that but sony has t even said what its speed is, if its anything under 1.6. The damn consoles are going to be equal, however from what i read ms has done a few things that no one understands yet and can be a game changer when it comes to power..

Kinect is not a gimmic, now that touch pad..... Like nintendo said sony hasnt done anything that hasnt been done on touch pads. Look at all the support vitas touch pad is getting!

And if you are still asking what kinect can do then you shouldnt be talking about it untill you educate your self..

" That is why the xbox One is 100 dollars more. Regardless of your opinion on Kinect, the fact is that it is included and it has value."

Ok your arguing that the reason why the XBOX One is 100€ more expensive is because of Kinect and for that very reason the XBOX One has more value in comparison to the PS4.

Well then as you can see Sony has already thought of that and they have a bundle with a camera, extra controller and Killzone ShadowFall for the same price as the XBOX One in Europe.

http://img6.playm.de/wp-con...

That, in my opinion, provides a lot more value to a consumer than just XBOX One with a camera.

You sure can, but really at that kind of price difference what will decide it will be the games.

I've played Driveclub, it's OK but it's nothing to beat Forza in my eyes. Both games have pretty lacking launch line ups, as every console ever has. However Xbox steals it with Dead Rising 3 for me. The eyecam will not be as well supported as Kinect as it's optional, and is just less impressive in general.

Just my opinion. Enjoy your PS4 and I'll enjoy my Xbox One...and my PS4 once Infamous comes out lol.

The best part is the PS4 bundles won't be just for such a limited amount of customers. Only the hardcore Day One preorder get this, whereas those PS4 bundles will be available to anyone.

@deadpoolio

If you did indeed read my statement correctly, I am only talking about games available on launch date...

Well PS4 is launching with over 10 free games so I guess this is the first good move from M$ in a long while

I'm holding out for " go on, just take one from this pile".
I still can't believe anyone would choose a console based on Dead Rising. Makes we wonder what games they haven't played.

I'll hold out for the PS4 version of Dead Rising 3, It's Capcom and MS has NEVER held on to games that they have published for 3rd parties like Ninja Gaiden 2 and Mass Effect 1 and 2....So I'm sure in 6 months PS4 will get the inevitable Dead Rising 3: Off the Rails edition or some sort of added subtitle to make it different.

Every one of the X1 consokes should come with a game. Why limit it to a certain region and alienate gamers?

wow M$ is indeed very desperate right...

No doubt its a fantastic deal if its true, but it begs the question of how bad are they losing in preorder sales for them to do something like this. Its obvious that ps4 is winning the preorders no doubt, but I don't think the one was so far off that they would resort to putting free games to up there sales. They have made alot of strides since E3, and although i wont be purchasing one anytime soon, until they remove the kinect from the package, from a value standpoint, their package is a good price without the games--- its really makes me wonder whats going on.

Would of been better if you can pick any game from the launch list, but Forza over Fifa for me.

The only games that make me want to buy the xbox one are Titan fall and Sunset overdrive. Other than that PS4 is all me.

Well since I tried to post an update to this story and Sony Fanboys shot it down...here is an update to it. Forza 5 will be available for free with Day One orders in UK. Should have know that positive XB1 news would get disapproved.

I don't know why game companies decided to hold off on releasing a game along with the system for so long...that was normal practice during the 8bit-16bit era...i'd say it really helped push gaming systems out the door for many months...I don't think mario would be the plumber he is today if he wasn't bundled with the nes...

Microsoft and sony should go back to the old ways, it would serve them well...if not a 3rd party game then one of their own...(a good one of course)...releasing fifa and forza is a smart move as it would have a bigger install base than on their own provided xboxes would sell like hot cakes in the initial months...then they would have a larger demand for their dlc...

Sony could follow suit as a counter move and release a game in the U.S....doesn't even have to be new, how about a god of war compilation? along with a demo of the new god of war...put the marketing department to good use...why not?

Hopefully so because I dont have any interest in football.

It looks like US MIGHT be getting a free game with XB1 day one orders after all.

Just read over at ign.com that Australia is getting FIFA free with Xbox one pre orders now aswell
