Forza fans can now choose between a few augmented editions of the Xbox One game when it launches with the upcoming holiday system.

FORZA MOTORSPORT 5 LIMITED EDITION ($79.99, above)

Apart form the LE car pack, Day One car pack, and VIP status (all are outlined below), the Limited Edition comes in a steel book case, contains a decal sheet, and includes 1,250 car tokens (which Microsoft says grants you access to any car in the game).

Limited Edition Car Pack: Each of the cars in this pack feature a special LE livery and top-level tuning (stock versions of the cars are also included in the game).

  • 2011 Audi RS 3 Sportback

  • 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish

  • 2013 Ford M Shelby Mustang GT500

  • 2013 McLaren P1

  • 2013 SRT Viper GTS

VIP Membership: Forza 5 VIP members get 2x reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, an in-game badge, in-game gifts, and the five cars below. An Xbox Live Gold subscription is required for any online multiplayer features.

  • 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C

  • 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird

  • 1991 Mazda #55 787B

  • 2011 Ford F150 SVT Raptor

  • 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

DAY ONE EDITION ($59.99)

This version comes in special Day One edition packaging that matches the system itself. Also included:

Day One Car Pack: Like the LE car pack, these three rides feature custom liveries and tuning.

  • 2010 Audio TT RS Coupe

  • 2013 Ford Focus ST

  • 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

 

Our Take:
It's pretty standard fare, but at least the Limited Edition version gives relative value with its VIP membership and tokens. Beats inflating the value of the LE by including meaningless tchotchkes.
