If you're not hyped for this then you must be an emotionless robot. I haven't felt such excitement since underground 2

[video=youtube;Lr0-TijmFDI]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr0-TijmFDI[/video]

So I know it can be bought from microsoft store and buying the xbone version = free pc version as well, but what if I just want it on pc? Really now who would want to play it at 30fps on console. Will there be a retail disc for pc or download only from the store? Lets assume it follows the trend of some recent games and is like a 50gb+ download, will definitely take me a fair amount of time to download it. Does microsoft store downloads work similar to steam in that we can share files?

There is no disc version on pc yet and apparently there won't be one for awhile. You can buy it on the windows 10 store for pc and it'll automatically get added to your xbox account as well.
The download is 49GB. I haven't tried backing up games and then reusing the back up files for the windows store yet, so can't comment on that.

This along with motorsport/apex are instant buys. Thanks to my brilliant download speed though I'd probably only get to play it mid October, that is unless file sharing does become possible and 1 of you bros can hook me up

Grabbed the 1st on that was free this month on Games with Gold under the Backwards Compatibility...and have been enjoying it...its a different experience from Forza Motorsport 6. Its fun...and this seems like one of the games thats worth buying...with all the titles coming out now...have to budget! GoW4 as well in a couple weeks after this...

If we can transfer between machines, your welcome to leech. I am sure we can make a plan as I am in PTA though. I have already finished pre-loading it on desktop, laptop and xbox just in case.

Yea sucks... I own an Xbox one. But even I don't care about cross play. If I want a game on Xbox I'll buy it on Xbox.. if I want it on pc I will buy it on pc. Having to pay r1000 when I only want the pc version is stupid... I'll just wait for a sale I guess

I think it's one of the rare cases that it may be "worth" spending that much on a game. Forza titles are always incredibly well optimized and well supported for the games life.
That said, I felt the same...I ordered it but decided to rather leave it but after a few days I caved and bought it for good. I know I'll spend hundreds of hours in game.
As far as Ultra wide support, I did see people mentioning 21:9 support is available. So fairly certain 3440x1440 will be supported.

Had over 600 hours in Forza Motorsport 4. The Forza games are incredibly fun and from the gameplay I've watched, Horizon 3 will be worth even it's R999 pricetag.

I'll see if I can find a good dollar based online digital deal, same goes for BF1 and Mafia 3. These prices are becoming ridiculous.
Sad thing is in dollar it is only $59.99 on the Microsoft Store. That's almost R200 less. They rip us off in South Africa.
No wonder piracy in this country is so popular ;)

Exactly, the whiney brick and mortar retailers are to blame, as far as I'm concerned.
Well it's more to do with the digital tax coming into effect.

They just brought pricing in line with Activision.

Also people were using VPNs to buy from cheaper regions.

They should just have strict region locking for products.

I want this so bad but CUD got the better of me this month. I am a Forza fanatic. And seeing gameplay vids of this on my YouTube home page every single time I open the app does not help either. I think I might pick it up at rAge. My internet is too slow to download it in any case.

Just took the plunge and bought the standard edition on the MS store. Damn Microsoft. The game just looks too good to miss.

Just FYI, you can get BF1 for R661 on Green Man Gaming if you make an account and add it to cart as a member. Got my BF1 there today.

I hear the PC version has some stuttering and might be because the CPU usage is really high or due to the encrypting/decrypting of files during gameplay.
Hope they sought out the performance issues in the next couple weeks. Really looking forward to playing this game.

Oh don't worry, I already have my eye on that ;P

I used GMG a fair amount before Steam switched to the Rand.
