    Seeing no official announcement of this from MS, even Major Nelson is quiet on it. They seem not to want to mention this to the US. I have ordered a FIFA day one edition and a Forza one too.

    That sounds cool. Do the consoles look different, or do they just include those games?

    I heard about this but, thought it was only UK ? I would love to be able to get Forza for free.... Save a little cash after the$500+tax on the console...

    There was a big thing on the game sites that in the UK they would get FIFA but, nothing announced here in the US..

    They just include a download code. When they first announced it they said for ALL pre-orders. They then stated, after a few weeks, that it was just day one edition. Now though Forza is coming t the day one editions too. You will obviously only get one or the other, not both.

    Selling to well in US, so no need. Although I did note that one website said they may do something. Keep your eyes peeled..

    Had an email from Game a few days ago about my day one edition coming with fifa 14 - not heard anything from them on forza though. I was intending to get both games day one anyway so whichever comes with the console doesn't bother me.

    Well I have two ordered, one for each. I am hoping to negotiate to keep both codes as a relative may have one of them. He doesn't care for either, so quids in, maybe. Still shocked at how slow they have been to sell out. Must be well behind in sales compared to PS4. I also reckon MS should bundle 6 or 12 months live in their too, then all of a sudden the Xbox is comparable pricewise. In fact, with 12 months live included too, it would work out cheaper.

    Just to clarify, it was never announced that it would be for all editions. It just wasn't announced initially that it would only be for day one editions. Stupid move on Microsoft's part for not clarifying initially, but this wasn't something they decided to change. It was always this way.

    The two Phils alluded to it being available for all pre-orders, past and present until stocks lasted. The did not state that it was only Day One Edition pre-orders.

    Agree with you on one thing, it was poor customer communication, again. It seems to me like they have been altering the plan at every turn. They have made a real mess of it so far.

    Uh, I disagree, the last time I check,the PS4 is dominating US sales. A free game or an extra controller or even a free year of Xbox live gold(I do not recommend MSFT to give that for free by the way) would do wonders for the Xboxone sales in the US.

    I mean well by comparison to the European markets, which I would imagine are tanking. You can still easily purchase an Xbox Day One Edition, not sold out, or even close to selling out. Obviously, some stores will, but you don't have to look too far to find one. As for the PS4, the rumours were that they were allocating far more units.

    No, unless you don't want it any more.

    I ordered both, the brother in law wants one, I am just deciding which one to keep. It may have to be FIFA, because the kids like it. I would prefer Forza. But, I need a game for the kids to play, they are too young for Battlefield 4.

    How old are your kids that they are too young for Battlefield, yet they're old enough for gaming at all? I mean, heck, I was playing Quake by 10, if not younger.

    3 months, 4 years, 10 years. My partner is big on enforcing age limits. To be fair, I could cope with the eldest playing it, the boy at 4 needs to wait.

    Was largely the same for me, but I wouldn't compare Battlefield 4 and Quake when you were 10. BF4 looks a whole lot more real with quite some "gore" things like the stabbing animations and all that, even if amount of blood isn't much per se in BF4. But I would 10 times rather let my 4 year old kid play the original Quake than let him play BF4. I don't have a 4 year old kid though.. :P

    Also I think it's a bit silly to compare playing BF4 to gaming in general. There's plenty of games aimed for kids or even many games that just have nothing that warrants a higher age restriction, Battlefield just isn't one of them though. I mean can you really compare playing like Super Mario to playing Battlefield even if they are both games, when talking about young children? :P
