Can't wait for this. But let's not have to wait 4 months after release to sort out the game for top end pc's like FH3. At least if they're giving the 60fps option on Xbox it may work fine this time for us PC players this time.

I'll give praise when praise is due. This is a great move on Microsoft's part. Kudos.

.....Forza Horizon 4 should have never been delisted this early though. I never particularly cared for the music, they could replace or remove music tracks for all I care. You don't see Gran Turismo delisting their games bc of licensed music. Make better decisions in the production stage if the music you choose is going to cause the entire game to get deleted from gaming history.

"You don't see Gran Turismo delisting their games bc of licensed music."

That's false. You assume it's music license? It's the same with Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo Sport was released in October 2017 and delisted in 2023. All servers shut down, impacting the game's functionality.
Forza Horizon games, when delisted, you will still be able to play multiplayer. .

OtterX24d ago

Yea you're right. I completely forgot that one was actually delisted. My apologies.

Profchaos24d ago

But it's not just music that's a problem the cars themselves are licensed to along with car accessories.

It's like licensing for any sports game or even a old-school Tony hawk game where every inch of the game is a licensing agreement from boards and wheels to skaters to music.

It's the biggest problem with sports game longevity and driving falls into the category

glennhkboy24d ago

It is not the licence of the music, it is the licence of the cars.

gold_drake24d ago

im confused.

wouldnt you have the game already if u bought dlc for it ?

BeHunted24d ago (Edited 24d ago )

No, with Game Pass there's extra deals that gives you 10% off all DLCs. You don't need to own the game.

gold_drake24d ago

so people buy dlcs without owning the games for it ?
mkay lol

@gold_drake

Could be cheaper to buy DLC on sale if you enjoy the game a lot on Gamepass and then wait for a sale on the game if you want to “own it.” 🤷‍♂️

Skate-AK24d ago

I do it all the time. Buy a season pass while it's on sale and then Gamefly the game. Still cheaper than buying it.

LabRat24d ago

If it's a MS first party game you could assume the game will be on the service forever (obviously this game has licensing deals that don't allow that). So yes, people can and do buy dlc for games and assume they have the base game for as long as they have gamepass. Crazy right? We live in a world where people choose how to spend their own money.

DarXyde24d ago

So apparently people really are buying DLC for games they rent.

That's very interesting. I'm quite interested to see how this shakes out for Call of Duty this year. Given FH4 is about 6 years old though, if it's any indication for the move going forward, you'll be waiting a while for that benefit to come through. Possible 5 full COD iterations later.

porkChop24d ago

Call of Duty games don't get delisted due to licensing though.

DarXyde24d ago

Sure, and they're regularly put out. Being delisted hardly matters with an annual franchise.

My point is I'm interested in seeing what DLC purchasing trends look like for those playing Call of Duty on game pass

ocelot0724d ago

Same, As it could turn out costing people more. With cod mw1 and MW2 I played both monthly right up until the next cod came out. So mw1 (2019) - cold war and MW2 - MW3. MW2 cost me £58 on disc. Think I bought the battle pass twice. If I was to do the GP route. It cost me £8 a month for GP so total cost £96 and at the end of that I loose access unless I buy it or continue renting. Then if I buy a few battle passes. It's just going to cost a lot more.

However, Credit where it's due. I felt ripped off with MW3. Wish I didn't buy it. At least with the new black ops I can rent on the cheap for a month. If I enjoy i can get it on pc or playstation. If I hate it i got to try it for £8.

Standard is $11.99 and Ultimate is $19.99 right now on Steam, so it's a good time to pick it up and own it.
