[Xbox One/Win 10] Forza Motorsport 7 (Play Anywhere) - £25.27 - Xbox Store (Russia)

Found 18th Sep 2017
Deluxe Edition is £33.88 and the Ultimate Edition is a cracking £42.20.

I'll point out that it's actually cheaper on the Egyptian Xbox Store at £22.38 (535 EGP).

Here is ChrisUK's Xbox One - buying from Colombia guide (works for all regions) guide and Silhouette's Xbox One - Buying from Other Regions *WITH* A VPN (Virtual Private Network)guide for reference

Unfortunately I'm not a whizz on purchasing from cross regions, but it's possible and more accessible (AFAIK) from Russia.

I did this this morning for the Ultimate Edition and it worked.

Do not bother using Revolut, that method has been blocked.

I used this website: plati.ru/cat…588

Bought 3,500 rubles worth of points (works out at about £45), entered the gift codes on the Russian xbox store and immediately preordered the game. It worked a treat!
Tentatively reporting success here. I intend on playing on my laptop as I do not have an xbox.

- Bought a 2000 ruble xbox card from nilt.ru for 1715 rubles. No need for VPN, you just need to translate each web page.

- Paid by credit card using the card option of their available options. Don't use Paymaster wallet. Also, Revolut or other 'virtual' cards won't work as they do not support 3D Secure - basically the Verified by Visa or Mastercard equivalent.

- Code for the card arrived by email almost instantly

- Navigated to the xbox store on the get deal link. Again no need for VPN. Just selected and loaded my 2000 ruble card to my account and redeemed. Used a Hilton hotel as the address, and everything got accepted.

- I logged out of my microsoft account when the purchase was complete, and navigted to the UK xbox store and logged in. The game is showing as ready to install. Also checked the Windows store, and it is ready to go there to on release.

I paid using my standard Halifax credit card, where I think the fee is 2.75% of the transaction. So should be about 60p. I'm not sure if this is included, but the pending payment on my credit card is only £22.07. Even with an extra couple of quid, this is easily the best price. If there are no extra costs, it even beats the magical Eqyptian price

You can buy it through the Xbox Store; it's Play Anywhere

Its best doing it on the website through the link provided but essentially all you need to do is add a russian address to your account hilton hotel in moscow for example then search for websites selling gift cards in rubles (seagm is the one i used before) buy it and then when you select forza 7 to buy you can either pay by card or redeem gift card click that one then put the code you get from the website you bought the currency from then it will be added to your account and then you can enjoy the game

Sorry for the grammar just wanted to explain it quickly for you

I paid £80 for the Ultimate Edition like a chump.

Granted it was using Bing Rewards, so it only cost me months of my life.

Hot hot hot!

I can't see why not bud. It'd be a pain though, I'd imagine.
Was looking into this yesterday, but couldn't find many places to buy Russian credit. The couple of places I did find looked a bit dodgy. Is plati.ru safe and legitimate?

Just went through the process and looks like I can if I buy Russian xbox credit, not going to buy this but is useful for future games I am interested in, I can wait for a price drop in many years to come as not finished FH3

You can purchase credit direct from Microsoft. I can't seem to link the page in because it's giving me an invalid character warning...but if you go to microsoft.com. Scroll to the bottom left of the page and click Russia. You can find the Xbox credit (2,000 ruble for £25.57). I'd imagine a fake address based in Russia would be required to checkout, though.

At least this is my understanding of it all. Can anybody confirm said method would include the code being emailed?
Hmm, so the difference between them:

Forza Motorsport 7 Ultimate Edition - The Forza Motorsport 7 Ultimate Edition includes the Forza Motorsport 7 Car Pass, the Day One Car Pack, and VIP membership.

Forza Motorsport 7 Deluxe Edition - The Forza Motorsport 7 Deluxe Edition includes the Day One Car Pack and VIP membership.

Forza Motorsport 7 Standard Edition - Experience the thrill of motorsport at the limit with the most comprehensive, beautiful and authentic racing game ever made.

The question though, what is contained within each of those 'features'?....

It's inconsistent. Some of it might be down to currency-based benefits. But the the prices vary between the different markets. South America and Russia are generally cheaper than Europe, but there are some games that are cheaper in Europe.
Cracking deal, thanks for posting!

So basically the standard edition has 32 tracks and 700 cars for £25 and the ultimate edition has 42 extra cars and some in game credits for £17 more.

Well that's a hard decision!

Interesting,I will keep an eye on this for the future.
Worth mentioning that if you give a false address you're obviously contravening the Xbox Live Terms of Service. Unlikely you'd get caught out, but still something to consider.
I'm tempted for the play anywhere version. But I have the standard physical preordered for 32.99 so don't know if it's worth the hassle. Plus I still haven't finished 6 or FH3.

Sort of. The ultimate gets you the 42 cars in all the car packs, plus another day one car pack. You get early access, and you get VIP boost which is usually like extra money for every race you do in the game. With that you also get a bunch of free cars and driver gear to start with.

I have the ultimate because I like all the car packs which are usually expensive to start with. They often keep back quite a few of the best cars to use online in these packs, as you might expect.....

This is what puts me off these deals. I know as soon as I do it they’d bring down the Banhammer and I’d lose access to everything

worked a treat, cheers. Came to £26.26 for 2k rubles. And the game is 1999. Confirmed added to my account.
But what about those dastardly 'Russian hackers'?

Yes it works if you're from Russia. The "Crossregion protection" also applies to microsoft.com and not only xbox.com, so you will probably have no luck if not from Russia - and it makes no sense to do if from Russia :-)

Got the standard edition using revolut sharing cyberghost VPN from laptop, used Ukraine as the country as Russia isn't listed. As it's a pre-order no money has been taken yet, just hope the exchange rate is the same or better next week.

I'd cancel it and go for this, game sharing bags you and a friend a Xbox one copy each + a Windows 10 copy for the account that makes the purchase. This is proper good value for £25.

You don't, unless you know them well don't risk it.
Has this actually been working for people?
I tried to go through the Singapore store last week (did this last year for FH3, which worked fine), however neither xbox.com or my xbox would allow me to redeem the Singapore Xbox credit to my account - keep getting a Currency Mismatch error. After an age with Xbox support, the only way to be able to redeem the credit was by changing my Xbox region to Singapore, after which I can't switch back to UK for 3 months.
Would the game be in the Russian language then?

You can't redeem the credit in the menu like you used to. Instead, when you purchase a game, there is an option to add credit. This still works.

That would be interesting! Of course not! XBox One games are region-free. So, if your XBox is set to English, the game will still be in English, regardless of where you purchase it.

I did, but bought 500 RUB first to see if it actually works, and on third purchase my payment is getting declined now, so I'm stuck with 1000 RUB on my microsoft account. Just buy 2500 and 1000 and it should work fine for you.

Probably just the default one then. People should just avoid using the one that says Debit or Credit Card.

A long time ago plati.ru actually accepted Paypal for a time, guess they stopped it.

Sorry mate! They are constantly closing loopholes and making this more difficult. This seems to be the easiest way to do this that is still available.
