UPDATED: What will be included in the Day One Editions of Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3

Today, Turn 10, Crytek and Capcom provided details of the exclusive content and unlocks that will be included in the Day One Editions of Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3.

To commemorate the launch of Xbox One, Day One Editions are special game SKUS that include exclusive content and are available only through retail pre-order while supplies last, or via download on Xbox Live the first two weeks after launch.

Forza Motorsport 5 Day One Car Pack: This three-car pack features amazing cars from Lamborghini, Audi, and Ford; each with a Day One-themed livery and custom tuning package created by the experts at Turn 10:

  • 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe: Stuffed stem to stern with modern tech, the TT RS is the first TT model to carry Audi’s famed RS badge – a distinction that’s earned on the track from the moment you step on the gas.
  • 2013 Ford Focus ST: Debuting with the same 247-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine from the much larger Ford Explorer SUV, the new Ford Focus ST packs a serious punch.
  • 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera: Like great sculpture, the Superleggera’s chiseled form is carefully considered for maximum impact. That’s where the similarities end, however, because this work of art is best appreciated when it’s moving at top speed.

Dead Rising 3 Day One Edition: Dead Rising Tribute Pack featuring exclusive game content and bonus attribute perks.

  • Classic Frank West outfit with Frank’s Zombie Slugger weapon, extra gory attacks and a custom skill move. Also includes attribute perks for increased melee damage and tougher survivors.
  • Official Chuck Greene outfit with Paddle Saw combo weapon that cuts through zombie hordes with increased damage and durability. Also includes attribute perks for vehicle and weapon durability.

 

 

Ryse: Son of Rome Day One Edition Exclusive Gladiator Mode Unlockables:
The Day One Edition of Ryse: Son of Rome will give players access to an exclusive Gladiator Mode Co-Op Multiplayer Map and an exclusive Sword add-on. Owners of the Day One Edition will be able to invite friends who own the Standard Edition to join them on the exclusive map.

  • Legionnaire’s Trust Exclusive Sword: From the Brotherhood of Metalworkers high in the Swiss Alps comes this well-crafted, finely hammered blade that includes bonus in-game attributes.
  • Ruins: Placing gladiators among the columns of an abandoned temple, Ruins will pit players against hordes of Barbarians, attacking from around every corner. The arena changes dynamically during gameplay, adding new obstacles and objectives for the player to encounter and overcome.

  • Death Dealer

    Dear Microsoft,
    Please stop this exclusive DLC practice and give the rest of the industry the same advice.

    • Dennard Mosley

      You do realize these games are Xbox exclusives right. Which mean Microsfot can release DLC for these games as they see fit

    • Timothy Monica

      Why is it wrong to give back to those that buy first at full retail, which in turn helps the developers?

      • Death Dealer

        It isn’t as long as other people can enjoy that content later on for a small fee. You’d still be paying to the developer for the additional content and get your complete game that way.

        • Spartacus073

          Historically, almost all preorder DLC has become available for purchase at a later date.

        • Nick Peck

          Hence the “Day ONE” title, if you want it, buy it early to get the stuff. However, most “exclusive” DLC is made available down the road at some point.

    • cris178

      The point of DLC is to get people to buy the games first hand not a used game. Cliff Blezinsky was right, now that there is no DRM all the games will now come with microtransactions and day one DLC bonuses. Expect to see plenty of F2P games this generation.

      • Death Dealer

        Oh yes, Cliff was right. The nickle and diming will continue to get worse.

  • m1nh0ca

    Miss those times when we would have those features only by playing and unlocking them (or even using a cheat by command input), with no need to pay additional $$ or buy things in pre-order.

  • RazorD

    So glad these will be available digitally :) Great sign for the future!

    • Death Dealer

      Yes, but the digital “bonus” content won’t be after 2 weeks.

      • RazorD

        Why do you say that? It doesn’t say that? It says

        “or via download on Xbox Live the first two weeks after launch.”

        • Death Dealer

          ?, refresh my comment. Something went wrong there…

      • RazorD

        But the whole point of these is that it’s a day one exclusive. For the people who buy a console on Day 1? That’s a good thing for early adopters!

        • Death Dealer

          Sure it is, but it’s definitely content that everybody should be able to enjoy later on.

          • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

            I would guess the delayed areas will also get the same deal, definitely digital but I’d think physical as well.

        • Nate Welles

          What, a couple skins? So much added value. Anything disc locked is not a bonus, it’s already there. Physical items, are bonuses, the first dlc expansion is a bonus. Not costumes, lol.

  • http://www.xbox.com/ Martin Davies

    Please M$ – tell us the release date of the Xbox One!!!!

    • m1nh0ca

      Interesting info from Amazon, if you click on the pictures in the post:

      “This item will be released on November 27, 2013.”

      Would this be the “day one”?

      • Generik420

        I think that is just a placeholder date as MS has said the console will come out in November. That’s pretty much the last possible day the console could release and still be in November with the Thanksgiving holiday. I’d imagine it’s going to be early November to compete with Sony.

      • Nick Peck

        A lot of sites still list games as 12/31/13. It’s just a placeholder date.

    • evilfangs .

      You do realize every time you put “M$” or “Xbone” It makes you look like an idiot right?

      The fact you also say “M$” while also begging for release date of the Xbox one proves this. If you think Microsoft are $$$ then why are you asking for the release date of the console.

      • http://www.xbox.com/ Martin Davies

        I’m happy to be an idiot if thats how you see it – @nickpeck:disqus 8th, interesting ;)

        • Nick Peck

          Yah, some retailers launch sheet got leaked and that’s what it’s showing. Fingers crossed :D

      • Monstrous Tard

        You do realize thinking that it’s not all about the money makes you look like an idiot right?

        So he likes their products, but not their greed, big deal?

        • evilfangs .

          Calling a company greedy while begging for the release date of the console only to give his money to this so called $$ greedy company makes him look like an idiot.

          Everyone knows these companies like Sony and Microsoft only want our money but you have a choice to buy the product, but to call them M$ while begging for the release date which suggest you’re going to buy the product on day one only makes you look like a idiot.

        • DurtySouth

          Use ‘M$’.
          Insert RROD joke here.
          And George Clooney was a horrible Batman.
          Any thing else old and ancient we want to reference?

    • Nick Peck

      Some companies slip up showing Nov. 8th I read elsewhere this morning :D

      • http://www.xbox.com/ Martin Davies

        week before PS4 – ouch, but would be a good move and in time for COD Ghosts :)

        • Nick Peck

          Yup :D

          • http://www.xbox.com/ Martin Davies

            rumour mill says Amazon leaked the 27th being the big day – I shall wait for an Official from M$ to make it official..

          • Nick Peck

            Oh of course, I’m waiting as well but with everything going on MS knows they need to release first and with sony taking the middle of the month, the 5th to the 8th seems legit.

            Historically, MS has always launched the systems and big games at the start of Nov so I don’t see them releasing at the end of the month. However, yes, we simply do not know. But there are two things that can happen.

            1. The real date is the 8th, was leaked and MS will announce it earlier than planned or..

            2. We just have to wait for PAX this weekend. either way we will know by the end of the week as they can’t afford to wait any longer imho.

          • http://www.xbox.com/ Martin Davies

            nope and neither can we!

          • Nick Peck

            Exactly!! I’m dying over here! Not really but I just want to know so I can plan the days that I get sick :p

          • Spargo CXVII

            And here I’m daydreaming about Xbox One on 11-01….

  • Fleshfeast

    Been wondering how it would work for digital orders. Glad to finally know. :)

    • Timothy Monica

      Seriously they give you two weeks to be able to buy this game digitally that’s pretty good.

  • Timothy Monica

    I know pre order exclusive items are a good way to entice people to buy the game before it comes out and pay full price. So as someone that usually buys the games day one and gives the full price back to the companies and developers, thank you! These exclusives look awesome, thanks for taking care of those that help from day one!

  • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

    sweet, nice to see the digital day one are getting them as well :D

  • Yari

    I’d rather see Day One digital purchases be rewarded with a slight discount. Even with the DLC included, you can never compete with stores offering discounts on new titles.

  • Josh Cox

    Hey, major when will we know next months games for gold titles?

    • Chris Hofer

      Probably Saturday. He usually announces those the day before the 1st and the 16th of the month.

      • Josh Cox

        ok cool thanks

  • https://twitter.com/#!/BeeDizz BeeDizz

    Nice to see bonuses for digital downloads. But does this only include Special Day One editions or will all games with pre-order bonuses make these offers available for digital downloads? And what about Collector Editions? I want the Forza 4 CE but I don’t want to buy a disc. I don’t like the thought of having to choose between buying the digital copy and getting all the features of owning a digital library, OR buy the disc to get the cool stuff. I WANT BOTH!! TAKE MY MONEY!!!

  • Boss

    Coming soon marketplace?

    • Nick Peck

      Coming soon as in day one when the system launches.

    • Nitemare

      DON’T LISTEN TO THIS LIER!!!!! HE DOES NOTHING BUT LIE!!!!

  • http://instantnyc12.tumblr.com/ Terrence Aybar

    This is pretty cool.

  • Nick Peck

    Great, thanks for finally confirming it. My only “worry” was that since I want to buy several games as digital downloads, was that I wouldn’t get the bonus day one content. So thank you for posting this! I updated my MS Wallet yesterday and am ready for all of my day one digital purchases!

  • Jorge Garza

    I woke up, while still sleepy, reached my iPad; then as I always do, I opened Major Nelson´s blog just to see if there was any news. With my eyes barely opened, I read “Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 included in the Day One edition Xbox One”

    Too bad that is not true.

    • evilfangs .

      They’re included, you just have to buy them :)

  • Jeremy Anderson

    Thank you for the bonuses for those of us who want to go all-digital! That’s great news!

  • Arthur Hughes

    The best question here is will these bonuses be available day one for digital download.

    • Jorge Garza

      To commemorate the launch of Xbox One, Day One Editions are special game SKUS
      that include exclusive content and are available only through retail
      pre-order while supplies last, or via download on Xbox Live the first
      two weeks after launch.

    • chex_mix

      Actually, the best question is why you didn’t read the second sentence of this blog post which clearly states what Jorge posted in his reply.

    • Nick Peck

      So I’m guessing you skipped the article and came straight to the comments section?? Seriously, the info is being spoon fed to you and you still missed it lol. Take the minute and read :D

  • E.Nich

    So… No Coming soon, Major? I hope you get less busy in the near future and have enough time to tell us the deals in advance, as usual ;)

    BTW, this week is mainly: Max Payne 3 with DLC, Red Dead Redemption + DLC, Ultimate MvC3 + DLC, L.A. Noire + DLC, Midnight Club LA, Bully, Invincible tiger (xbla) and Powerup Forever (xbla).

  • beardyman3218

    Will xbox one games use dts 5.1 or a higher bitrate dolby digital than we have now?

    • Belloso

      I have been wondering about this for some time. I truly hope they bring lossless codecs to this generation.

      • beardyman3218

        Yes the disc space is now there so would be great if we could have the option.

    • Nick Peck

      From what I have read, the new audio system is fantastic but I haven’t seen any specifics on the codecs / bitrates (ie dts / dd and the like).

  • mcmax3000

    I was about to comment how a multiplayer map is one of the stupidest bonuses a company can give out, because that’s only useful if all of your friends also pick it up at the same time to get the bonus as well, but then I read this line:

    “Owners of the Day One Edition will be able to invite friends who own the Standard Edition to join them on the exclusive map.”

    Thumbs up on that one.

    • Nick Peck

      Yah, that is pretty cool and I hope we see more of this from here on out.

    • roozbeh, again

      awesome

  • Rykin

    I hope there is a demo of Dead Rising 3 and Ryse available Day One because there is no way I am buying either without trying them. Forza 5 will probably be my first game for Xbox One though. Also would love to known when Day One is so I can use some of my vacation time ;)

    • Nathaniel Frost

      not likely, they figure if you’re gonna shell out the initial cost of the console you’re gonna have the rest for a full priced title

  • ungeheier

    ” via download on Xbox Live the first two weeks after launch.” Thank you for that clarification.

  • Hit Man

    I picking up Dead Rising 3 Day One for sure. Maybe Forza too. I’m not sure about Ryse yet.

    • Nick Peck

      After seeing the new combat stuff and how things have been retooled I think I might get it. I don’t mind some gritty hack n slash type games every once and awhile and it looks pretty good. However, I might still hold out for some reviews, but I’m getting the 3 up top no doubt.

  • Markus Hudobnik

    What about other game titles?

    • GmailIsDown

      these are the only 3 day-one editions left. Kinect Sports got pushed to next year.

  • karlbacha

    I will get 2 forza one digital other the disc

  • ElektroDragon

    Luckily for me, I have already pre-ordered all 3 games.

    • Death Dealer

      Very likely not was the answer an MS representative gave me at GamesCom.
      Paper manuals will be replaced by digital manuals or help tutorials in-game or in the menus for many of the games in the next generation.
      What you will very likely still find is a EULA.

      • ElektroDragon

        Thanks…. though of course, if I go all digital, I will want to stay all digital. Now with no manual and forced install of the disc, not sure what I gain from physical since I don’t sell back games. The only benefit will be costs down the line. The physical copies of games will get discounted heavily in months. The digital copies might take YEARS to get the same discount level! In the long run, physical might be cheaper. But I’m running out of room to store games in my house! Hmmm… tough one.

        • Nick Peck

          Yah I hear ya. However, if it’s a game I know I want to keep for good I’ll just download it. Other games I’m not sure about or know that I will just play then never touch again, I get on disc.

          I don’t buy very many used games, but I do trade the ones I’m totally done with in. If it helps cut the cost abit I’ll do it :)

  • Dan Kreykes

    Major! Let me pre-order these games digitally with the pre-order bonus’s! On xbox .com or Microsoft store. Where ever! I want to go all digital please!

    • ElektroDragon

      Digital pre-orders like on PSN would be fantastic.

      • Death Dealer

        Unless they leak, like in GTA5’s case.

      • Nick Peck

        I agree, I hope they do this as well. Not a huge deal but sometimes I’d like to commit the money so I don’t use it on something else lol.

    • evilfangs .

      Agreed, should allow us to pre-order the game then on release day 12:00pm, midnight take the money out of our bank and download the game for us if we’re offline.

      • Nick Peck

        The minute I have my XBO out of the box and plugged in, and after doing the setup, I’m clicking purchase on 4-5 digital games :D

        • evilfangs .

          You must be rich, unless I haven’t heard the news that digital game are going to be cheaper.

          Xbox one plus 4-5 digital games for me would cost £429 – console and depending on the game £50-55 per game that is like £679 on one purchase.

  • skycorgan

    Will the downloaded versions in the first 2 weeks include “Day One” graphics on the cover art?

    • Nick Peck

      The 2 weeks comment is for the DIGITAL versions, which we all know you don’t get any retail packaging. This means that in the first 2 weeks of the system being released, you can get the DIGTAL Day One versions with the added DLC stuff. After said 2 weeks, you will be buying the standard DIGITAL download versions of the games.

      If you want artwork, you need to buy a retail disc version.

      • Dylan

        Yeah it sounds like a cool idea to me.

    • ElektroDragon

      I think that would be awesome to have the Day One graphic on the digital “cover art”. MS I hope you’re listening!!!

  • Kinectamaniac

    I’m going all digital with Xbox One! Some people I know are complaining that digital copies will not be less expensive than physical copies…due to no packaging, no retailer cut, etc…

    But I’m fine with same pricing…at least with release date pricing.

    Now, once the physical copy goes down in price, so should the digital price.

    I remember on the 360, digital pricing still high, while the in-store discs were reduced in price.

    Will reduced digital pricing match reduced physical disc pricing this upcoming Gen?

    • Nick Peck

      The problem is is that there is no standard for this yet. I agree, EVERY digital purchase should be a tad cheaper, I’m not saying $20 cheaper, but at LEAST $5 or more. I’m hopeful that one day someone will step up and make some rules of some sort.

      However, it’s not worth getting all bent out of shape for right now, all digital stores do it for new releases, but I hope they start watching the market and adjust the store prices more frequently than in the past.

      • ElektroDragon

        On Vita, all digital releases are already $5 cheaper. Sony realizes how much more money they get back from a digital sale and is willing to pass some savings on to us to encourage even more digital sales and hence even more money in their pocket over the retail sale. If Microsoft were smart, they’d follow suit.

        • usrev

          yup and many arcade games are cheaper with psn+ by a few dollars on release week. a $15 game will be $13, not a big discount but since psn+ is only like $4 a month if you buy 2 arcade games it was worth it, let alone the free games and such.

          • Nick Peck

            While true overall, we have no clue as to how MS has retooled XBL yet. So who knows what types of discounts and the like we might start seeing as the norm.

            However, you can’t expect much at the start of a new systems life since it takes a LONG time to build up a library, so the freebies and discounts won’t be readily available for awhile on both systems. I’m hopeful MS has seen what sony is doing and will make some needed changes.

        • Nick Peck

          Hmm my comment got deleted why? All I said was is that I know the vita has the small discount, but the ps3/4 versions don’t. I do agree that we should see that on all digital only copies of games.

    • usrev

      retail is actually cheaper for consumers when you factor in getting a gift card back and trading the game in. the reason digital fails is it’s too expensive if games launched at $30 on the marketplace and dropped $10 every month till it hit $5 it would be fine. but no, digital will start at $60, or $55 and drop maybe $10 every year if we are lucky.

      but no thanks, i’l preorder and pick up battlefield 4 for $60, then be handed a $10-$20 gift card when I get it, and gladly trade it in or $20-$30 when bored. while people who buy digital will spend $60…. and that’s the end of that.

      • ElektroDragon

        Even if you never trade in or sell your games, physical is still cheaper, because retailer competition always drops down the price within 6 months. Meanwhile digital with no competition, they’re not interested. They might drop the price after 2 years or give a measly sale that brings it down to retail pricing temporarily if you’re lucky.

        Then you have to consider Gamefly’s awesome keep what you rent for a discount + bonus dollars programs. Or even outright purchases from Gamefly which give you mint cases/manuals and unused game codes and pristine discs. No… its just NOT cost effective to buy digital no matter if you trade back your games or are a collector.

  • evilfangs .

    There is a RockStar sale on the dashboard and I was looking to pick up the “Undead pack” which is the zombie single player game. It doesn’t say if I need to original Red Dead Redemption game to play this or not.

    Does anyone know 100% if I need the original red dead game to play this undead zombie game?

    • roozbeh, again

      no you do not.
      too bad i got the goty edition.
      good luck playing in solomon foley

      • evilfangs .

        Thank you.

        • roozbeh, again

          the solomon foley thing was sarcastic. it is ps3 and goty exclusive

  • roozbeh, again

    hopefully these will release for free later.heck i dont mind paying for them later. but their is no way i will preorder an xbox one.(or ps4 for that matter)

  • roozbeh, again

    please dont be like forza 3 for the sls amg. i beg of you

    • Nitemare

      NO

      • roozbeh, again

        nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

  • martin_m95

    are forza 5 and dead rising 3 going to be on 360

    • evilfangs .

      No.

      • martin_m95

        dammit.
        oh well. Its not worth buying that awfull console just for those 2 games

        • Nick Peck

          Yup, you played it and know all about it huh? Way to judge before trying. Typical. But that’s ok, one less hater to deal with on there :D

          • martin_m95

            im not a hater. I just dont like where microsoft is going
            i know what to expect form them

          • Nick Peck

            What is that exactly? Sony is doing the same as the ps3, which is not much different. Just wondering what the “logic” is.

          • martin_m95

            sony knows how to make a video game console

          • Markus Hudobnik

            and microsoft apparently doesn’t?

          • ElektroDragon

            Nope, because the GPU is seriously gimped and they chose the wrong memory type. I’m getting both but I am under no illiusions as to which console is more powerful.

          • Nick Peck

            Again, lets see some video evidence of a ps4 game looking any better than a ps4 game. I have watched and seen everything and the evidence does not exist. Again, hardware means nothing without software telling it what to do.

          • ElektroDragon

            Yep, I’ll be at PAX and judging for myself. I just hope someone has the same game running on both consoles there. Apples to apples and all that.

          • Dylan

            It just won Gamescom, so I doubt it.

            Mark Cerny created a heck of a console I’m sure. Seems to be impressing people.

            Meanwhile, Microsoft won’t even reveal the specs. They keep getting leaked and look inferior.
            Don’t know if that means much anyway.

          • Markus Hudobnik

            In my opinion, Microsoft “won” Gamescon. They kept it short and sweet and had awesome demos and the like. Sony’s was good too, if you are an indie gamer. I love indies just as much as the next guy, but Sony should have had a few more AAA to announce or something at Gamescon.

          • Dylan

            Apparently the media disagrees and thinks the PS4 has more impressive hardware.

            But they think TitanFall is possibly the best game announced so far.

          • martin_m95

            no its actually a tie between destiny and titanfall

          • Nick Peck

            Again, that “impressive hardware” won’t do anything that the XBO can’t do. I haven’t seen one pic or one video of it doing or looking anything better.

            Hardware is only as good as the software that runs on it and MS’s OS is so much better looking in what it can do already in it’s alpha / beta stage. But we will see soon enough. I have NO worries at all and am 100% confident in my choices.

          • Dylan

            Funny, I never even mentioned that the Xbox One would be a bad purchase and people should reconsider it.

            My psychology class tells me that the fact that you even mentioned that you were confident in your purchase and have to constantly defend it, out of the blue, means you have doubts.

          • The_Mad_Prophet

            What does your psychology class say about people that feel the need to brag about taking a psychology class? I’m guessing they’re very insecure and need constant validation.

          • Dylan

            Didn’t think I was bragging.
            Not like I’m an MD or something.

          • Nick Peck

            So these are the only posts you have made on this site? Nope, I have seen plenty of XBO hate (not all of it is hateful but a lot of it is) come from you over several threads. Nice try though.

            Do me a favor, show me one pic or one video of something the ps4 can do better. Not one game shown on the ps4 looks a pixel better than any XBO game.

            The ps4 can’t even app swap with everything like the XBO can. I can’t wait to see what all of that “extra power” gives ps4 gamers lol, because I haven’t seen anything impressive yet. Their launch line up is a joke and they picked Killzone and Knack to lead the way? Yikes. I’m sure they will be decent games and I hope the fans like them, but they are very generic looking to me.

            I’m not worried by power at all because you won’t see any real difference between the games.

          • Not_A_PC_Gamer

            Actually Destiny and Watchdogs do from the screenshots I’ve seen and on PS4 we’ll be getting exclusive content that Xbox One users wont have.

            For the most part tho I agree, multiplats will look virtually identical on both systems and not be a light and day difference like they are this gen.

  • John Poholski

    Is this just for the games published by Microsoft studios? Or is this for games like bf4 and cod ghosts too?

    • Nick Peck

      “Day One” bonus is exclusive to these 3 games (yes the MS published games). There was four games, including Kinect Sports but it got delayed.

  • http://www.trueachievements.com/Samba+P.htm Andreas

    How will this work for countries that gets the console in 2014? I have already payed for DR 3 day one edition. Will I still get all these things?

    • evilfangs .

      How can you get a game for a console which you aren’t getting until 2014?

      Maybe you’re buying Dead rising 3 this November 2013 and waiting until early 2014 to get your console?

      • http://www.trueachievements.com/Samba+P.htm Andreas

        Okey my bad I guess. Let me rephrase that. When tier 2 and 3 countries get this game in 2014 will we be getting these day one editions? Because some of us has already payed for them and technically I will be getting them on launch day here in Sweden.

        • evilfangs .

          I doubt Microsoft has even thought that far into the future to answer your question. My guess is probably not.

        • Nick Peck

          Day One means Day One of the console launching, so since you are getting it later on, you will just have a different Day One and all games and bonuses will be there.

  • Dylan

    The PS4 and Destiny won best of show at Gamescom. Also had highest attendance.

    I’m actually surprised by the rewards (but not the attendance).

    • martin_m95

      yeah both ps4 and destiny will be awesome

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        i scroll down to see why you were complaining about thumbs down … i must agree you were right. We now know that there is 10 troll on that blog that just dislike where ever they see a positive statement and ps4 in the same comment.

        I have preorder xbox one, i’m not rich enough to buy both but im sure ps4 will be a very good console too that will please sony’s fan. Only braindead cannot understand that

    • roozbeh, again

      it said destiny was the best shooter. which is on both xbox one and ps4

      • Dylan

        Yep. And…?

        TitanFall won best next gen game.

        • roozbeh, again

          just sayin

  • martin_m95

    wow im surpised by all the immature kids putting tumbs down on my comments for no reason

    • Francisco

      You are on an xbox blog most people that come here don’t care about the PS4.

      • martin_m95

        yeah i guess
        i keep forgetting that this place is full of xbox fanboys

        • Francisco

          Why are you even here?

          • martin_m95

            oh you know
            Im here for news and updates to the 360

          • The_Mad_Prophet

            You have the right to read silently. Any post you make can and most likely will be used against you.

        • evilfangs .

          Hardly full of Xbox fanboys, maybe they’re some of them here but the reason people have disliked your comment is because most of us don’t care for PS4 which is why we’re here to get away from the PS4 and all that comes with it, ( fanboy comments, hate etc ).

          • martin_m95

            im not a fanboy im a gamer. I loved xbox 360 but i lost faith in microsoft.
            thats just my opinions though
            and i dont really care about dislikers

          • Death Dealer

            Then leave, simple as that. BYE!

          • martin_m95

            i told you i dont care about dislikers anymore

          • Nick Peck

            That’s nice, but if you are here to hate on a product us fans want to talk about, then leave. Most people look for intelligent and engaging conversation. Not “i don’t like the system because other people don’t’ like it, blah blah, ms sucks blah”.

            We don’t care for that, go somewhere else and do it.

          • Not_A_PC_Gamer

            And I’m only here to keep up to date on how MS will screw up next. I have no intentions of getting the Xbox One under any circumstances. If there is something I want to play on the system I’ll borrow one from a friend.. MS won’t be getting another dime from me again.. simple as that.

          • roozbeh, again

            do you think microsoft’s next boss is gonna do better?

          • martin_m95

            i dont think so
            but hey atleast he cant do worse than mattrick did

          • roozbeh, again

            well that is true.

          • Not_A_PC_Gamer

            Absolutely not, nothing can save their image now.. Atleast not with us Adults actually stand by our principles and are very careful of which company we are going to lie down in bed with for the next 10 years.

          • roozbeh, again

            well that is a bit weird now. dont you think with a change from ballmer and mattrick things would get better? the crazies that almost killed xbox and ms in the last couple of years?

          • Not_A_PC_Gamer

            I just feel as if they need to reevaluate their whole xbox division. Yeah things are better after they are gone tho, I totally agree.

          • roozbeh, again

            give the next guy some time. i think it will happen

          • Nick Peck

            I know how you are and I can respect your opinion, but you crack me up as much as the crazy sony fantards. You guys keep digging up the past of something that DIDN’T and ISN’T happening. Nothing that was done will have cost ANYONE any time or money.

            The time has past, move on already, the dead horses body has rotted away. Living for the future is much more fun. If you don’t like the Xbox One, then just leave the site as no one here cares that you are a pc fanboy. That is totally fine if that’s what you enjoy, but you won’t see someone like me hunting down a PC only blog and saying how horrible PC drivers are, or how fun it is to spend money on overpriced video cards, or how said video cards have so many options built into them that no game ever uses.

            I’m glad you won’t spend money on a MS product, but 99.9% of the people here don’t care, so why do you have the need to state it 5 times a day? Need the attention? Simply bored and like to troll? If MS is so out of touch then why did they listen and make the changes people wanted? How has the used game market been on the PC for the last 12+ years? Oh wait, you mean you can only install the game and have it locked to one account? You mean you can’t trade games in? You mean pc games have DLC and microtransactions?

            Get off of the high horse… actually, stay on it and ride along to another site already. Here’s a few fun facts:

            Steam, from Valve which is a big company these days, used to only allow you to install every game 2-3 times max before having to call for additional installs. They also required you to check in online before being able to play games offline. Valve also had a lot of issues with Steam that could mess up peoples accounts causing them to lose libraries and not get everything back (I know that first hand and saw it happen to several others awhile back as well, many issues listed online over the years too).

            Valve only changed the issues above after huge outcry from the customers. It still isn’t perfect today but it is a lot better and is a pretty solid system that can pass along some great savings no doubt.

            Sony denied that they were selling exploding laptop batteries many years ago until the issue became so bad they finally admitted it. The ps2 and ps3 systems both had the same disc drive problems as well as overheating problems for the first several years after launching. The list can go on, no company is perfect.

          • Not_A_PC_Gamer

            Ok here is the deal.. I just spent the last 20 minutes typing you a reply nearly 3 times as big as yours.. Now it’s nowhere to be found. I hope it pops up when I refresh my browser because If it doesn’t I won’t be returning here again. This is like the 13th time I’ve had my posts deleted from here when I’m being civil, mature and fair to others. Or maybe Major Nelson didn’t like me putting him and the rest of the MS scam artists on the spot like I did in my lengthy reply to you.

            Hope you get to read my reply and let me know if it shows up for you. If It doesn’t I think I’m giving up posting here as anything I say that is not in favor of these greedy crooks at MS is damage controlled like Al Kaida on a warm september morning.

            Let me know if my reply shows up.. thx

          • roozbeh, again

            i have the same problem. it is a disqus issue not major nelson. if you actually read the faq it clearly states you can criticize microsoft but you cant escalate it to a insulting others. or causing an unfavorable response from people.

            ‘If It doesn’t I think I’m giving up posting here as anything I say that is not in favor of these greedy crooks at MS is damage controlled like Al Kaida on a warm september morning’
            (O.o) dude cool down a little. it has been 3 months. just because you dont trust them anymore doesnt mean you can compare them to osama’s band of radicals.

            so you are familiar with bing rewards. most people dont know that. but i thought they changed the policies into once a month?

        • Bush O Connor

          i’m an xbox fanboy and have been for 10 years or more, play on all platforms but the xbox brand was my base. Microsoft in general are pushing me away.

          • Areen Khachadouri

            im sorry to hear that.

        • Nick Peck

          Says the moron on an Xbox only related website with an Xbox One logo pic next to his name. Go bother the sony blog site, no one here likes you :D

    • Death Dealer

      Having to make a comment like that simply because people disagree with you, THAT IS IMMATURE!

      • martin_m95

        how do you explain the dislikes on the comment where i asked if the games are gonna be on 360 what reason did they have to dislike

        • The_Mad_Prophet

          Who cares how many likes or dislikes you get, or the reason? You probably obsess over your facebook friend count, too.

          • martin_m95

            i dont care about dislikers anymore
            and no i dont even use facebook that much

          • Nitemare

            CRYBABY MARTIN

          • martin_m95

            nice insult bro *sarcasm*

    • roozbeh, again

      i disagree with you completely. mainly due to the fact that you think you know the direction microsoft’s going. if it were a couple months ago i would agree with you. but not now. what is your problem with it now? i just dont get it. is it a lack of trust?

      • martin_m95

        *sign*
        ok i guess I went a bit too harsh
        i didnt really mean all that(exept for not caring about dislikers)

        I was just too angry with the new xbox 360 update and all those stupid restrictions on xbox one.
        I can only hope that the new microsoft boss removes the restrictions and makes the console better then i might reconsider buying it.

        • roozbeh, again

          what restrictions? sorry im not following on those.
          the online requirements are gone and so is the mandatory kinect.
          and take it from me. dislikes on a blog full of strangers dont matter. i have one hardcore disliker on me as we speak.
          still who ever is the next boss of ms hopefully will do better( as if he can do worse than ballmer)

          • martin_m95

            yeah hopefully

          • roozbeh, again

            ballmer is xboss.
            just had to say it

  • Markus Hudobnik

    Has anyone confirmed that digital pre-order bonuses will be available for ALL digital titles?

    • martin_m95

      seems likely

      • Markus Hudobnik

        I hope so…

    • Nick Peck

      Only for games like the ones listed above or any possible bonuses set by the dev’s, but don’t count on getting Gamestop / Best Buy type bonuses online :D

  • Nigel_Vertigo

    What I want to know is if ALL game preorder bonuses will be available for the first two weeks, not just Xbox exlusives. I really want that CoD Ghosts map!

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      in the past, history told me that all pre-order bonus come available to everyone is one point in the life of the game. Especially map.

      • Nigel_Vertigo

        Not really. None of the CoD or Halo preorder stuff has been made available after launch. I’ll probably have to buy a code of ebay if I want it (or be a naughty boy and buy it from Gamestop, get the code, then return the sealed game)

        • SteveFNL

          The Nuketown 2025 map was an “exclusive” pre-order bonus for Black Ops II, but later became free for everyone after 2-3 months. So it could happen with some of these as well.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            same with dishonered pre-order perk all became available

      • Nick Peck

        There are several different types of bonus content. One being called preorder bonuses, mean you can ONLY get them at certain stores via preorder and are not available outside of that (though sometimes a year down the road they get put up for sale)

        And two: timed bonuses like the above. Not everything always becomes available. What the article said is, is that the DIGITAL download Day One bonuses are available for two weeks and that’s it. That doesn’t include retail disc versions.

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    i tought the article was “what will be included in the day one edition xbox” but suddenly my eye got burn by reality.

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    Does anyone know if Ryse include a mode that look like Spartacus without the crapy pay to win aspect out of it ? From what i saw it look like it has some gladiator arena stuff to do, but nothing clear if its a real complete aspect of the game or just a crappy side quest to do ? is it an online mode only ? i would like epic fight in arena.

    • Nick Peck

      I still don’t get how buying armor is pay to win in a non competitive game lol. It’s funny how differently the younger generation see’s things (usually wrong haha). Pay to win is when you can buy top end gear and weapons at an early “level” (depending on the game) while playing against other people.

      Yes, that is not fair. But when you can buy items for a coop ONLY type of MP game, it doesn’t matter at all as you are playing together to win. There are people out there that will ALWAYS have something better than you, the sooner some people realize that the easier life becomes.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        have you play the game ? it look not.

        In spartacus and in many free to play phone game you have to do insane grind to get the money you need to buy stuff to progress. Some country started banning those game for unfair commercial practice and the risk against kid etc. That’s another debate though.

        In spartacus it’s especially true since you win silver and you need gold to buy valuable stuff and silver doesn’t translate into gold as far as i see. So it is impossible to actually beat all the area by grinding. And trust me past a certain point leveling become painfull. Some area trow you against oponent that have 200 more levels then you. (whitout warning you first so you get your characther kill and you loose gold again). When you loose a fight, you have to pay to resurect a caracther and it goes exponential for each death.

        To compete in higher area you have to buy legend and they dont respawn so its another gold sink. This game is a true exemple of pay to win and the only way to acquire gold at a decent rate is to buy a 5$ pack here and there. The game is fun, but i would have prefer bought it and not have to worry about paying gold all the time. I quit this game for that reason but the gameplay is really well done ubisoft did a great job on a free to play game.

        I have no problem with grinding to a certain point, i prefer game to be hard, but i see no interest in grinding hours to get wiped by an opponent that is 200level higher than you. Since gameplay is fun, i wish it is better in Ryse. BTW no coop in spartacus so you just don’t know what you are talking about or maybe you are confusing with diablo 3 or wow which is definitly not pay to win

  • elsascho

    I read somewhere that switzerland can get their consoles either from italy or germany for example and that there is no border in the live service for consoles from other countries. Is it in this way possible to buy games like DR 3 in Germany from Austria or somewhere else?

  • Fitzgerald

    How about telling us when “Day One” is?
