Extra content locked away on the disc!!
I hated not being able to drive the RUF RT 12R in Forza Horizon because it was Limited Edition DLC but NPC's were driving around in it. Heck they even had an outpost stunt involving it!

I'm not paying a dime towards a game that hasn't released. I don't care what the bonus is. Paying for a game that has yet to prove itself is nonsense.
