Forza 5 now comes with Xbox One Day One Edition consoles

Microsoft has added Forza Motorsport 5 to its Xbox One Day One Edition console pre-order promotion in Europe. Day One Edition consoles come with a commemorative controller, a code to unlock an exclusive Achievement, and were previously offered with a free copy of FIFA 14.

Yesterday the company announced an Xbox One release date of November 22 in 13 markets. It also said it would be making available a limited number of additional Xbox One Day One consoles for pre-order. The Day One promotion has now entered a new phase, with UK retailers including ShopTo and Amazon offering a digital copy of Microsoft’s racer as a free bonus instead of FIFA. GAME has already sold out of Forza Day One Edition consoles, unless consumers opt for a £615 bundle which also includes Call of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition.

Priced at £430 / €500 / $500, Xbox One will release with 23 launch games and hit store shelves slap bang in the middle of PS4’s US and European launch dates.

    How about an article predicting the next new things MS will bundle in to "sweeten the pot" in effort to boost lagging Xbone interest. - drink coozies - instructions for converting old 360 disks into art or coasters. - a "I've been x-boned" bumper sticker - backpacks - lunch boxes - numbered and authenticated units, certificates signed by Mattrick himself. - life size poster of Balmer - six pack of beer - year subscription to the jelly of the month club - a Zune - chia pet

    This makes it sound like it includes both or replaces the previous Fifa offer, but it's actually either/or isn't it? Either way, this looks like MS is trying to take advantage of the slight head start it has in Europe. Ignoring the fact it's only releasing in about half of it.

    Wow, that's nice of them. Too bad I'm not interested in either of the games offered.
