Just started downloading FH3 (pre-load) 46gig. and with FH up on GWG I now own digital copies of all 3 FH games :) Don't forget to pick up the free dlcs from the xbox store. The list of free dlcs are in this link below. https://www.reddit.com/r/xb...
So where do you pre-download the game? as i'm searching the xbox store on my X1 and the only option is a pre-order.
Once you pre-order, it appears under your ready to install menu on your Xbox One. After downloading you won't be able to launch the game until it's release date.
My pre order is 410mb. Whys yours 46Gb?
Lol. I have no idea bro. I think the option to pre-install came up on the day it went gold(a few days ago). I just pre-ordered the standard edition yesterday and was immediately given the option to pre-install the game before the official launch date. You should check under the updates menu on your Xbox one.
Cheers. Will do What's your game tag? See you in Australia?
Nobody in the business markets better than Microsoft when it comes to upcoming titles (Forza Horizon 3). A lot of guys will download Forza Horizon and realize what they have been missing out on and then run out and pre order Forza Horizon 3 (Ultimate Edition Sold out in my town). Maybe even going out and getting Forza Horizon 2 as well. Which is probably cheap now. I'm sure they have a version with all the DLC by now. Last year Microsoft had the same strategy with Tomb Raider. They gave us all Tomb Raider D.E. for free on X1. So I played it. Liked it so much I ran out and pre ordered Rise of The Tomb Raider. So hats off to Microsoft for there strategy and giving us all a great game. Myself, has never played Forza Horizon but I do have Forza Horizon 2 and I just preorder Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition yesterday. Here, I'm cussing Microsoft last night when preordering FH Ultimate Edition because it has a Friday release of Sept. 23 wondering why wait till Friday when games come out on Tuesdays usually..................here they are giving us the game four days early with the Ultimate Edition because the regular version comes out Sept. 27. LOL. Stupid me.
It's early because of ultimate edition early access. Unlock on Saturday morning at 5am for me. Got my mum organised to have my daughter for the weekend, and have booked Monday Tuesday off work, because we all know that's what holidays are supposed to be used for, right?
yeah, using older games in a franchise to promote newer ones is always been one thing I've said is a great way to use this service, and could always bring in more people to a franchise. Always something I liked about these types of services. Ironically, PS+ got Tomb Raider for PS3 right after they released the definitive edition on PS4. Then not too long after they announced it was exclusive. Kind of a kick in the balls there.
This is happening often where we get more then the games with gold offerings. I'll try it out. Recently we got beyond good and evil which is an amazing game.
Xbox live gold
But it is not "Free" since if you're not a Gold Member, you'll have to purchase at least 1 month Gold membership to obtain the game...if this were actual advertising, it would be libelous. Very misleading and click bait.
Funny, but I used to purchase Gold and get nothing but internet access and now I get 4 games a month at no extra cost, so I guess Members do get free stuff after all! What rock have you been living under that you've just noticed how GWG(or PS Plus for that matter) works? It's been like this for several years!
You obviously have a lack of commonsense and poor reading comprehension skills if you don't understand that WITHOUT a GOLD membership the GAME/S would NOT be FREE ....won't respond further since I cannot make it any clearer /
its a matter of perspective. For those of us who have happily been paying for LIVE for 15 years these games are free as an eagle soaring majestically into a wind turbine.
The paid Service is for online multiplayer, the games are free bonus as a result of paying the online sub. So your saying the phrase, "buy one get one free" is also incorrect, as you have to buy one, to get one free?
It wouldn't be libelous, because that implies someone saying something untrue about someone or something else in a damaging way. It's not even false advertising, because it is free to download....with the catch that you have XBL Gold. Is this kind of argument really worth retreading? It was dumb when it was lobbed at PS+ back in the day, it's just as silly now.
The article headline could be libelous if they were marketing 'anything' for public consumption.....everything is silly to people who skirt around facts just to win a point ...but yeah, whatever, it is Libelous if offered as free without prior warning to the consumer that monies will be exchanged. It doesn't matter that I have a law degree for over 15 years, but you have your opinion, and I'll have my legal expertise and commonsense ... /
That's still not libel, because the article itself does qualify what's required to get it for "free". Libel also assumes that damages are incurred either emotionally or physically(or however that is termed for corporate matters). If anything, MS probably wants to push this notion of "free", so probably doesn't have a problem with it. In fact,MS own marketing prominently displays "free". http://www.xbox.com/en-us/l... So, it's not really libel to use the companies own terms for it. The company itself can be said to be misrepresenting the nature of "free", but a company/person can not make libelous statements against themselves....or maybe they can, but I"m sure they can't seek remedy. If by chance, the term "free" is misrepresented, then having a law degree, I'm sure you're familiar with all those terms and conditions attached to every word in marketing material and sign ups, making it perfectly legal. Furthermore, on the news side of things, since the definition of "free" can be ambiguous in this case, due to people's notion of calling the games free, or qualifying it as "free with subscription", it becomes more an opinion that the games are free....and opinions can't be libelous in most cases. I would think with a law degree of 15 years, you'd be able to note the subtle nuances of why in no way would this ever hold up as a libelous statement. Heck, without a law degree, I knew this, and easily verified it through Google search to make sure I wasn't off in my assumption. Personally, I wouldn't take your law degree if you can't actually know those nuances, doesn't matter how long you've had them.
that's why it's called game with GOLD
