I'm guessing we'll hear something soon. If I can swap my preorder with ShopTo I won't know what to do as I like the idea of getting the LCE. This is why they should just allow all LCE content to be downloadable at an extra cost.

Shopto also confirmed it.

I wasn't too keen on FIFA 14 so I'll go with FM5, not worth spending the extra for LCE. I presume it is still the Day 1 edition of the game?

Say what? Is this for real? Please let it be as I hate football and ordered pre-ordered Forza so I can get something else instead.

Microsoft has added Forza Motorsport 5 to its Xbox One 'Day One Edition' pre-order promotion in Europe.

UK retailers GAME, Amazon.co.uk and ShopTo are offering the deal
Sweet! Might pre-order now then as there will be Fifa 14 bundles available [again].

Just pre ordered the Forza 5 Day One edition on amazon and it's listing a delivery date of 25th November, so I'm guessing it'll not exactly be Day One. I've kept my existing pre order for the initial Day One, it'd be good if Amazon let you change your initial pre order to keep the November 22nd release date delivery, I really don't want FIFA but at the same time I don't want to lose my release day delivery :/

Just switched mine and the delivery estimate is the 23rd with prime. Really happy about this as I'm not bothered about FIFA.

Yeah, Amazon won't be dispatching until the actual day of release, hence the Saturday delivery (expedited) / Monday delivery (first class).


I already have a pre-order with GAME, which got upgraded to Day One + FIFA once that was announced...

... Only trouble is, I don't know what my pre-order is for now.

My GAME account says Day One + FIFA.

... but the only Day One bundles listed on the site are Day One + Forza for 430 (sold out) or Day One + FIFA + some COD special edition for 615...

So WTF is my order?

I only want the console for 430...

I've placed an order with Amazon for the Forza pack. I don't mind it coming on the Saturday instead of the Friday, I just don't want to have to buy some stupid bundle.

Yes yes yes, my number 1 launch title for free instead of fifa. A couple of days back I ordered a 2nd controller and plug and play kit for 60, I reckon that is getting cancelled now.

Anyone else having issues with ShopTo website? It's taking ages to view preorders and when you do finally get there and click to swap they don't actually have the Forza bundle up yet.

Presumably that's only for the recently added Forza 5 "Day One" editions though? If Amazon don't deliver their initial batch of Day One's until after release day then their forums/customer service department will be a seething pit of rage. It's bad enough when something like COD or Halo doesn't arrive for release day, nevermind a console launch

My original order hasn't updated to provide a delivery estimate yet, although considering i ordered it back in June it had better say 22nd of November.

They had the bundle up last time i looked about an hour ago, but it was only available to buy as part of a bundle along with another game and 12 Months Xbox Live/MS Points/extra controller.

GAME apparently sold out of their Forza 5 Day One Edition within 2 hours!

I knew that new preorders would sell out quick. Looks like ShopTo are being a bit crooked here, only allowed existing preorders to swap for the FM5 pack-in so long as you order it as part of their own bundles, which I wouldn't mind too much if the bundles were good but they are either with an extra controller & Battlefield IV or Assassins Creed IV and Watch Dogs. I've sent them an email, worst comes to worst I get the FIFA 14 code and I sell it on Ebay. That would put me off ShopTo though and I'll be complaining.

The ShopTo bundles are shit, for both consoles.

You save 5 off their prices and I found pretty much every single one cheaper on Amazon, separately.

I've seen comments elsewhere from someone who used Amazon's live chat, and apparently they *will* be aiming to dispatch before launch so they arrive at launch.

Well seeing as I actually want Kinect, an XBox1 works out better value for money now. Maybe others realised the same through the PR fog of the last few months.

hmmm I've got mine ordered with Very.co.uk as I used a discount code and got cashback. There saying anyone who ordered the Day One edition before the 23rd August gets Fifa and those after gets Forza.

I've emailed them asking if they can swap mine. Seems a bit unfair to those who ordered early if they don't let you swap.

Their website is a bit daft, though has been changing over the last few hours as they rush to update it. You can get the Day One edition with Forza as you say for 429 or the same with a hard copy of Forza for 479! I did query this on Twitter and they said the difference is the hard copy. Why you would want both is a mystery!

I hate ShopTo right now. They're getting some serious flak for this, rightly so. I wouldn't mind if their bundles were ok but it's all crap. Hopefully they change their tune.
