It's available on PC as well, if you get a "Play Anywhere" code, which this copy does not include.

good find op, heat added
Fantastic game, my daughter just loves it. I got her an Xbox for Christmas along with this game and she's not stopped or got bored since . Heat added, great deal.

major fail
The best racing game of this generation
Easily worth double this for what you get.

That said, still preferred FH2. No idea why, either!
Finally got a reason for my Xbox to exist. Great game and well worth the price. I truly am amazed how good this looks on Xbox hardware!
Still waiting on that sub-£20 price. Come on retailers!

​Yeah, but already completed this. I need to get my hand on the latest one. I know it'll drop further if I snap this current deal.

There was the Game glitch which gave a copy of this with an Xbox One controller, and the deal on Amazon a few weeks ago for this price for the PC version.

I love how this "Play Anywhere" initiative by Microsoft is so straightforward and easy to understand.
Thoroughly recommend this game it's so good!
Aye I agree it's rubbish, if the games are Play Anywhere they should literally be that, every copy of the game runs on Xbone AND Windows 10. But it's not, it's convoluted and confusing.

Yes I was lucky enough to bag that. Digital copies of Forza 6, FH3 and Xbox one controller. Great deal.

FH3 is absolutely brilliant! Not even tried Forza 6 yet...

It's presumably done like this because MS don't want people activating the PC version and then selling the disc version to one of the many people who have an Xbox One, but don't have a PC with anywhere near the horsepower to play modern AAA games.

I agree; it's a daft system, but I can sort of see MS's side too. What's more annoying, is that the "Play Anywhere" digital versions of the game often cost more than the disc version, despite the fact you can't sell it on and there's no production or shipping costs!
^ Same with everything Digital, new releases on the PSN store are up to £59.99 whereas the discs are £40

Makes absolutely no sense and is just designed to absolutely rinse consumers.
Great game played it to death
I'm still playing forza horizon 2. Have reserved this for this price though. Thanks!

But you can gameshare it, halving the cost right out the gate
Thanks, reserved

Oh right, that sounds good. What's Gameshare (sorry, I'm pretty out of the loop with regard to the Xbox ecosystem)?

My issue is really that the "Play Anywhere" thing brings rip-off digital game prices from console to the PC, where games tend to be cheaper and are almost always digital. It's not even as if a cheaper, physical copy of the Play Anywhere titles is available on PC like it is on Xbox.

I kind of understand disc games being cheaper on console, MS & Sony don't want to annoy their retail partners (the people who actually sell the consoles...) by undercutting the retail partners physical game prices with digital ones straight from the Xbox/PS online stores.

I can't see the issue going away until consoles lose their disc drives entirely, in all honesty. Even then, I suspect that either MS or Sony (or both...) will try something which makes buying digital games on console a PITA compared to the relatively consumer friendly experience on PC.

I'm not the only one then - I traded in FH2 when I got FH3. Thought about going back to 2 after.

I think FH3 felt a shorter game "story" wise, and also felt the world was smaller. Dunno why though.

Having said that, I don't know how many laps of the Goliath circuit I've completed, and still struggle to get that perfect lap.

You find someone you TRUST and wont fall out with any time soon you then set their Xbox as your "Home" device (i.e. you log onto their Xbox with your profile and click on "make this my home device") and you do the opposite on your Xbox, that's it!!!

Now everything they pay for digitally (jnc the 4 free monthly games) will appear in your "ready to install" list and you also get use of their Gold subscription and EA Access if they have it too. The only downsides are that you don't get the "offers" (but so what), and if you do fall out, they can take away your access so you will lose everything. I share with my son and its a godsend, the games tend to be more expensive, but factor in that youre getting two and its a no-brainer!

​For some reason I preferred Forza 1. It just seemed that the races were more challenging, the one with the Peugeot 205s took me ages to complete but felt more rewarding.

Only played Forza 2 on the 360, is it worth buying again for the one?

I think that the unlimited rewinds is a blessing and a curse as you can just keep doing it until you get it right. Of course you don't have to use it, but they've made it so you have to in a way i.e. the AI usually just leaves you standing from the start.... and lets you catch up to P1 after lap 2, it all became a bit predictable, but I'm 99% through so I guess I've raced a lot
Not a big gamer but this is just fantastic and the visuals are stunning - finally justifies the Xbox One I got for Christmas.
