Xbox marketing boss, Aaron Greenberg, says it will be the “biggest and best-selling Forza” ever launched.
I'm excited to see the final product
I can’t wait for this one. I thought Gamepass will kill game sales though. We had companies telling us it would put them out of business. I wonder what had changed now
Well its a Microsoft product and they are the only ones doing day 1 gamepass. It will be interesting to see if they can get other pubs to do it.
I’m pretty sure they had Vermantide come out on Game Pass day one, which was pretty cool
Exactly what data do you have to prove how Gamepass affected sales one way or another? Microsoft releases no numbers.
Absolutely... and “Well Ahead” of Expectations??? Hahaha they said this for sea of thieves too and over several weeks it was just sold over 200K only at retail... I hope they pit FH4 against Spidey ;)
@bhai What were the gamepass and digital numbers. In 2018 you cant act like only physical sales matter.
Companies? Wasn't it one brick and mortar store in Europe who was freaking out? Did I miss others?
Oh.....lol. It wasn't one. It was three. I'm surprised MS didn't shut down Game Pass right then and there. /s
“The Austrian retailer Gameware, and UK retailers Extreme Gamez and Sholing Video are just a few of the independent game stores which have an issue with Xbox Game Pass. In fact, Gameware has such a big issue that it made plans to no longer stock Xbox products just because Xbox Game Pass makes “repeat business with customers minimal.””
The funny thing is that Forza Horizon is more popular then it's original IP, Forza Motorsport.
Because it's better!
Because Sim racing games become pathetic and it all about realstic photo mode. I mean nothing changed since GT4 and still about limited spaces and tracks. Give me open world sim that have proper setting, drifting and crashing and it well sell a lot.
Because people enjoy arcadey racers more than sims. But I think Forza 8 is going to be something different. I think they realized they can't make it the same thing again with more cars. So they took a year off.
Reserved, day one.
Suddenly MS cares about sales numbers now? lol....wish they would make up their mind. But cool it is doing well. Looking forward to playing this later in the fall.
This game will be awesome.
Oh really!? Maybe I should preorder too..
I wish we could get more Tesla models in game. I loved Horizon 3
I have Game Pass so I get it for free, but I pre-ordered the full Collector's Edition anyway. Can't wait!
Still have so much to do in FH3 as i do in F7 online so this will be the first Forza i have not got at launch . Will get it eventually but am drowning in events still, i finished FH2 but wow FH3 is massive.
