Microsoft sweetens Xbox One Deal, throws in Forza Motorsport 5Written by Alan Buckingham on March 06, 2014 - 08:30AM @alanbuckingham
One of the big titles that debuted with the Xbox One console late last year was Forza Motorsport 5, a racing game that allows you to fire up pretty much any exotic sports car. Always wanted to drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini? Now you can, well...sort of.
Beginning next week, the game will come bundled with the Xbox One. "Starting at select retailers next week in the US, a digital copy of Forza Motorsport 5 will be included with purchases of Xbox One for the retail price of $499.99 for a limited time. Hailed by critics and consumers alike as the best-looking and most realistic racing game of this, or any other generation, Forza Motorsport 5 has been embraced by Xbox One fans worldwide, becoming the best-selling racing game by console attach over the past decade", states Microsoft's Larry Hryb.
A list of the names of these retailers was not given, but perhaps we'll learn that before the actual release takes place. However, getting the game free with a regular priced console is a good deal, and should help to attract buyers.
