preordered mine already. looks sick

Here’s a quote from today’s article in the News section…

"From the powder party aesthetic on the front to the racing-inspired textured dual grips on the triggers and back – a first for a limited-edition Xbox controller "

I feel a need to remind you about this :slight_smile:


Yeah and that controller was much nicer looking. I mean I like that they’ve gone OTT, but they totally lost me on the back of it. If the grips had to be black, make it all black; the bits and pieces approach is just nasty.

As for game items locked behind purchase, I actually don’t mind that as a concept. Certainly better than the multiple pre-order cars in FH4, and the controller will presumably be available over a much longer period!

Pretty scummy to lock an exclusive FE car behind a controller that costs more than the game itself. I really hope they make it more available at some point.

crazy to think some will buy a controller they will never use just to have all the cars. No ethics survives the opportunity of a few more buyers.

Salty crowd :slight_smile:

The car is “1932 Ford De Luxe Five-Window Coupe”, it’s just an FE version of a car we’ve had in Forza games for years :wink:

And like all Forza Editions, its probably going to be counted as an individual car, meaning that unless Playground Games provide this car without us having to buy that ugly as sin controller, people won’t be able to complete their collections. Also, this is completely flying in the face of their claims that there would be no preorder incentives, and yet they still stuck it onto the preorder of that abomination of a controller.

Sounds like they are getting desperate for money. Here’s, a tip, listen to your player base, fix bugs before everyone quits playing. It’s not a controller that is stopping me from pre ordering the game. What’s gonna stop me from buying the game is past history.

Hahahahahaha. They’re coming out with another sure fire best seller and you think they’re hurting for money because they’re releasing a controller??

These comments give me the much needed comical relief after a long day of work.

The Dauntless visor for Halo 5 was an exclusive for the Master Chief controller yet every single player has it. It’s an exclusive code, not an exclusive car. The density.

Also if you guys don’t like the controller then just don’t get it. We get it, y’all like your straight black ones, buy another. :roll_eyes:

Didn’t even know about the dlc part, just thought it looked really nice. Snagged one at Best Buy. Sold out at US MS store pretty fast!

I don’t understand, how did you ‘snag one’ and how is a store ‘sold out’ of a presale that isn’t due out until November?

It was availble to pre-order yesterday 70 minutes after the stream. I pre-ordered from Microsoft directly since I needed a spare controller and it reminds me of Holi - the festival of colours.

It looks like it’s carved out of frozen urine with random Teletubby blood splatter. Hideous.

The design doesn’t remind me of FH5 at all… reminds me of a sneeze whilst eating trifle.

I think it’s supposed to be piñata-esque? :man_shrugging:t2:

Yeah I get the Mexican theme, but it doesn’t really scream Forza to me. I’ll pass on it. Too bad as I need another controller, my FM6 Edition XBox One is about to be permanently retired for a Series X, and I wore one of those controllers out completely (FYI the rubber backing can deteriorate with enough use… or kids who pick at it lol). I was hoping they would release a Forza Edition console of the SeX as the standard one is pretty boring to look at.

Well, so much for “NO PRE-ORDER INCENTIVES”
