View author's profile

Today's daily Countdown to 2014 deal on the Xbox Games Store is all about Forza Horizon, offering half off the game itself via Xbox Live's Games on Demand service.

You can also snap up the game's Season Pass at 70% less than the usual price, giving you a whole bunch of additional cars to play with.

Once again, the UK gets somewhat shortchanged on the pricing. Check out today's deal.

@2 *Sigh

Can anyone tell me if the Forza pass is worth it? Do the cars help with the main game? And does it come with the fast travel thing.

Cheers.

@5 No it doesn't come with the fast travel option. This has to be purchased seperately with tokens. The Season Pass is great for the 1000 Club DLC though.

Just Forza Horizon and its season pass for games today? Bummer.

Tuesday was Borderlands 2 and a few of its add ons... Terraria was scheduled along with this but was moved to Wednesday. We got Spelunky, Terraria, and Fez yesterday...

I'm not the biggest racing buff out there, but why can't a little more variety be offered here? Sure, do Forza Horizon, but I want to see a bit more like Pure, one of the Need for Speeds, Grid 2, and so on....

I got this game for 600 microsoft points earlier this year, this sale sucks because I have all of it already. To get all the achievements in 1000 Club requires you to at least buy the November Car Pack. Great game though.

"Once again, the UK gets somewhat short changed on the pricing"

That statement right there sums up Micro$ofts attitude to their new pricing policy for the UK since dropping MS points. It's one that will only alienate UK gamers and push them towards Sony for their gaming fix.

I haven't bought anything from the marketplace since the points system was dropped and with prices like those quoted above it is the reason why I no longer buy arcade or games on demand unless they are very cheap. I for one won't be buying any digital games until Micro$soft get real with their pricing policy for the UK.
It's also one of the reasons I won't buy a Xbone. They want us to move over to digital games and then they charge ridiculous prices which without disc copies no one can compete with as they would have no competition.
I refuse to pay over inflated prices just to allow Micro$oft to support its new machine and the problems it has. The Xbone isn't even a games machine, it's an "entertainment device". Micro$oft are now only interested in the entertainment/apps side of the machine and the gaming is just a very expensive extra.

Not going to make a joke, say that I amm getting one the offers available and ask a valid question about another of the posted offers, in case it gets removed by a mod. this site could do with a third option of thumbs up, thumbs down though...an extended middle finger option :p

Will pass on this but will see what the next countdown are :)

@16 - Argument has nothing to do with the % discount. It's about the exchange rate.

Game on Demand is $14.99 = £19.99, so exchange rate used is £1.00 = 75 cents !! (Micro$oft ripping people off)

Season Pass is $14.99 = £10.19, so exchange rate used is £1.00 = $1.47 (more realistic)

So OK Genius care to explain the exchange rate policy then?............. Thought not, the maths would clearly be above you, as you response to the original comment clearly shows you have problems reading and understanding. ;)

@19 you arnt getting it.

You get 50% of the price off the game. the game is £39.99 on the uk market place and $29.99 on the us market place.

Its that simple. It has nothing to do with exchange rates.

And dont start making sarky little fucking quips because you're to thick to understand basic maths.

@19 & @21 the simple truth is uk gamers are getting shafted vs their American counterparts. This has always happened. Ms points have always been cheaper to buy in the US than in the uk. Now there is a monetary value it just makes it more obvious

I actually thought this was a good deal at first because me and a friend have been talking about getting the rally pack, which I assumed would come as part of the season pass. I mean the season pass is supposed to be all dlc in one nice discounted bundle and yet they leave the most popular content out of it and still charge almost £30 for a bunch of cars with no extra gameplay, I might not buy any of the new consoles until the industry sorts it's shit out.

Does this season pass include the Rally Expansion or not?

Seems to be a lot of confusion over this, including my own confuzzlement.

Rally comes w/the season pass - and technically if you just wanted to but the Rally pack it is $5.00 off since the regular price was $20.00 - if you want to 100% the game you need this and at least 1 of the car packs (since some of the individual cars were available for free)

Oh and in regards to the pricing difference between UK vs US. The reason there is a difference is to add as much authenticity as possible.

For many years, anything produced in Good ol' Blighty has always cost less in any country it's been exported to.

Remember; Authenticity. Not dirty robbing shit buckets.

#36 Yes you can as I've done the same as you,got it for 600 msp in the summer sale.I haven't played it much,too busy with other stuff but what I have played is pretty damn good.In the description of what the 'seasons pass' includes it doesn't make it clear enough that you get the 'rally pack'-which is a bit daft as its the lions share of the entire dlc-but it IS included.
To confirm again:As long as your downloading the seasons pass onto the same console you downloaded the actual game to-you will be able to use it.

@16 & @19, you think you're being ripped with prices in the UK because of exchange rate ? here in Mexico this "deal" offers Forza Horizon at $499.50 pesos, so who's being ripped ?

Even if the exchange rate was $1 USD == $15 pesos, this still would be overpriced, and the current exchange rate is somewhere between $13 and $13.50 pesos per USD right now (the game is $999 pesos without a deal, so there's no doubt this deal is a 50% off, but the exchange rate is pretty bad)

The only thing I'm going to say about this whole sale so far is that the last year was much better, and we knew which games were going to be in sale from day one

In game most said purchased i guess they automatically unlocked when season pass downloaded? Now I hope to see Kingdom of Amalor reckoning dlc and CITADEL I'll join everyone else and hope for that.!

Another great "sale" by M$. Anything good is not going to het put up by them. Games old as funk and there arent any other deals today but forza. Really annoyed at this due to the fact that they dontgive the consumer the deals we all would like. Just refreshing the same old ones. How is it a deal when forza was eight bucks half a year ago and now its over twice as much during this wonderful sale? I would like some dlc for me3, metro light, the remaining dlc for skyrim or cheaper god.

So I grabbed the season pass and am able to download the rally pack for free from the main menu. However, the season pass itself was only 238kb of data. How do I download the cars it comes with, as I didn't see them listed for free in the marketplace? Do I download them by going to the specific car in the game itself, selecting it, and it'll download from there?

Considering how long it's going to take me to download the 1GB rally pack (I only have a slow DSL connection), I'm hoping to find this out now to know where to look for my new cars for later.

You know, I think I already had the cars downloadec, just not unlocked through the DLC, because each pack contained one free car to download. So a couple months ago I downloaded each free car per pack, and I think I just downloaded all of the packs when I did that, merely unlocking them when I bought the season pass today. After checking the marketplace and the list of cars per month, I noticed they were all already purchasable in the Autoshow, so I guess I had them downloaded already. Only cars left marked as "DLC" are the pre-order and VIP ones, which I won't bother with.

The rally racing that came with the season pass is a pretty fun diversion, though.

You people complain "oh how does $14.99 translate to £19.99? For horizon?"
@21 is a hundred percent correct, 50% off the UK price. Just as advertised.

And think of it this way, look at how much Blood Drive is on the UK marketplace versus how much it is on the US marketplace....

Once you have done that...I have one question for you...done complaining now?
