Edit 2:

UPDATE 2 (15:55): GAME has relisted the Forza Motorsport 5 bundle for 429.99.

VideoGamer.com is still awaiting further response from Microsoft.

Edit:

UPDATE: ShopTo has also listed the same bundle on its website, offering Day One Edition customers the option to choose between FIFA 14 or Forza Motorsport 5 as the free download.



Apparently this was pulled down from GAME's website:

GAME posted an image showing the Xbox One Day One Edition appearing to be bundled "with Forza Motorsport 5" on its website soon after Xbox One's release date announcement earlier this afternoon.

But the image was quickly removed, only to be replaced by a standard Xbox One 'Get In The Queue' graphic.

Microsoft has yet to announce an official Xbox One: Day One Edition Forza MotorSport 5 bundle, but has previously confirmed that all European Day One customers will receive a free digital copy of FIFA 14.

At the time of the announcement, however, Microsoft also added that FIFA 14 would be "the first game included", hinting at the possibility of additional freebies.

When contacted by VideoGamer.com this afternoon, a Microsoft representative said that it had "nothing to share" on GAME's listing.

Adding a game in the box makes dat $499.99 a bit easier to swallow. If true I just might keep my pre-order.

Wording on that banner is pretty vague, like most ads. Could just as likely mean that Forza 5 is a game that's available for XBO.

Seems more like a "Forza 5 or FIFA 14" not "Forza 5 and FIFA 14". (See other thread). Would be still awesome, though, I would prefer Forza.

Eh, they need to just hurry up and just get the launch lineup out there. I hate having to revise my preorders because of the late announcements of Limited Editions and deals.

MS pre-order numbers in Europe are dire at the moment. They can always count on the US to come through for them, Europe not so much.

I wonder if the reason for getting Forza free is that they have already sold out of the FIFA downloads bought from EA. As Forza is owned by MS they can be more flexible with this offer.

Preorders must be well below what was expected in Europe.
