Forza 5 races into US Xbox One bundle, but only for a limited time

When Xbox One was released in Europe, masses rejoiced that Microsoft’s latest console would include a free copy of FIFA 2014 or Forza 5. Meanwhile in the colonies, Xbox One users had no free game included and thus had to drop the value of an Xbox One along with another $60 just to get started.

Now, Microsoft is announcing that Xbox One consoles in the United States will include a digital copy of Forza Motorsport 5 for a limited time.

Turn 10 Studio’s Forza Motorsport 5 was one of Microsoft’s premier launch games for the Xbox One and took advantage of the console’s new trigger force feedback. The game was well received by video game critics and is an excellent game to get started on your new console.

Tracks in the game include the Bernese Alps, Prague Circuit, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, TopGear Test Track, Test Track Airfield, Road Atlanta Raceway, and many more.

Have you not purchased your Xbox One yet – does Forza 5 sweeten the deal?

Does it sweeten the deal? Absolutely. But until they actually put icing on the cake instead of sprinkling sugar over it, I'm not gonna bite. :P

What more do you want? It is already the most feature-rich console in the history of the world and now you am an get either Forza 5 or Titanfall free with it. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

It can do less than the 360 at this point. It has potential, but right now its the most featureless console. Especially if you consider the necessary subscription to make mostly buggy features work.

Forza is good, however, there are some tweaks needed. Mainly in the menu and options. Also, it could do with some more tracks. That said, I love it, I can't stop painting cars, spent hours on them. And the racing is very good. Made my Xbox One purchase much more compelling.

That is my frustration with Forza. So many missing tracks from previous versions. Still love the game, but darn it I want my tracks back!

I never was much into it before, but got it as mine came with FIFA, and I am not a fan. Painting is great though, although my designs are very basic. Got a few downloads though.

No. This is to move hardware, and give those who want a X1 but not Titanfall a game with the system.

I'll take a hug :-) But seriously if this happened a year later it would be ok. This early in the cycle, I think we should get something...a cheap arcade game, movie, anything will do.

And 3 months playing amazing games like Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Forza 5, Ryse, Peggle 2, Plants vs. Zombies: GW, Max: Curse of Brotherhood, etc.

Forza 5 should have been called Forza 3.5 as it has less tracks and cars than 4. What a disappointment...

yeah I got FIFA14 down here in Australia. and I'd have MUCH prefered to have gotten Forza, (it's great fun)

I've had to buy Forza and the Fifa is still unused (and never will) I need to sell it
