The Forza 3 version is the one that doesnt allow the new DLC. Waste.

Alan Wake download not hard Copy. Meh.

coolbeans3644d ago

250 gig 360 bundled w/ Forza 3 + Alan Wake is a waste?

Rush3644d ago

I think it was just a fail troll to be honest, better luck next 360 thread Trebius.

divideby03644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

^ did you ever think that someone may NOT like racers...
DUGH. and Forza would be a waste for that person.

I know dissing a 360 or even a PS3 exclusive is blasphemy for blind fanboys

be a gamer, not a hater...

I can think of 5 other games I rather have than Forza...

jetlian3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

you again sigh... both games closer to being acceptable to mass consumption. 2 games free vs none at 299. l'll gladly take it.

gamingdroid3644d ago

Let's face it, no matter what game is included it will be an instant fail when you compare PREFERENCES instead of game quality.

I don't know about you guys, but both Forza 3 and Alan Wake are highly rated games. I don't play racers, but I enjoyed Alan Wake immensely.

coolbeans3644d ago

C'mon, there's no need to falsely claim me to be a fanboy. Trebius initially came in here with "Ugh. What a waste." and then I responded. I have no care in the world if he doesn't like racers, I don't mind if he doesn't find the bundle to not "be up his alley" either.

I'm just responding to the initial response by just stating that those are two quality games, no harm, no foul in that. Sigh...n4g can be like Whack-A-Mole sometimes: stick your head out for a moment about another's iffy post, then get hit with a label like fanboy.

JokesOnYou3644d ago

Oh yeah sure, a guy with a anti-360 post history is *coincidently the 1st to comment on a positive 360 news piece, just to say "What a waste", lol not only is his comment transparent but your *naive defense of his motives just speaks to your bias=

"I can think of 5 other games I rather have than Forza..."

-lol, really? but thats not the point, your comment is silly since WE ALL KNOW ITS SUBJECTIVE but those games are highly rated, its not like they are offering a bundle with 2 budget titles from 360 library. Its like reading "I can think of 5 other games I rather have than UC2..." in a ps3 thread, I mean even if its true who cares when you know that it will most likely be a great bundle for those who don't own a ps3?= Transparent trolling

Anon19743644d ago

I still haven't played Alan Wake yet but it's on my list of must buys as soon as I get through some other games I've been chipping away at. $299 for the 250GB Xbox and two games, and two good games at that, should be enticing for anyone who hasn't yet picked up an Xbox. Even though I do most of my gaming on my PS3, the Xbox is 10 times the game machine the Wii is. Considering a Wii and two games like this would probably set you back $280, might as well spend the extra $20 and get a real game machine if you're looking for value.

JokesOnYou3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

lol, just kidding, hey I know you prefer the ps3 and theres certainly nothing wrong with that, I'm definitely guilty of letting my bias effect my comments myself but I do wish we could have more comments from both sides that acknowledge the positives about the both of course BALANCED criticism is always a good thing too, I'd just like to hear more comments that sound like a gamer rather than bashing anything we dont like.

Rockstar3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

hard copy of Alan Wake and token for D/L of Forza....

But that's just me because I like my games in a Hard Copy and not a big fan of Racers...Also, I really want to play Alan Wake...

Rather see a 50 to 100 dollar price cut and I'll go buy me a copy of Alan Wake.

No Way3643d ago (Edited 3643d ago )

If a player doesn't like racers, still doesn't make it a waste. DUGH..
But, I'm sure if it was a PS3 bundle with GT5, it wouldn't be a waste.

It'd be the greatest thing ever! -.-

@coolbeans- I was thinking the same thing. Not sure what hes talking about.

Sheikh Yerbouti3644d ago

Duh...! Not every criticism is fanboy trolling.

He wants the Forza GOTY and Alan Wake on a disc. He thinks MS could have done better. So what.

Rockstar3644d ago

Haters be hatin'

They gonna drink their haterade...

frostypants3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

This is actually not a horrible deal. I don't hate it.

It doesn't blow me away, nor will it convince me to trade in my 360-Fat, but it's solid. If I was buying a 360 for the first time, this would be the package I jumped on.

elmaton983643d ago

wow is that the best they can come up with

Why couldn't they add Forza 3 GOTY edition?

coolbeans3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

It didn't get Game of the Year by any relevant site, just Racing Game of the Year awards (the "just" isn't to dock Forza 3, mind you).

Fishy Fingers3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

Think he means "Ultimate Edition" which contains all the DLC. I expect thats what they'll include other wise it's a bit of a kick in the nuts.

Also, a download version of AW is a pain if you dont have the net (unlikely these days) or just want to play it asap. Disc would of been better.

Good bungle though, quality games.

Elven63644d ago

Racing Game of the Year is still Game of the Year material.

Games that win Game of the Year XXXX awards usually say so on the cover.

siyrobbo3644d ago

If Alan wake is an m rated game they couldn't really bundle it in as minors wouldn't be able to purchase it. Making it a download token probably gets by this,

It makes sense for ms to do it this way anyway,
