Xbox One Day One Forza Motorsport 5 Edition pre-orders sell

I managed to get my sons and my pre-ordered consoles swapped over in store this morning but they said that they had only been allocated 3 Forza bundles and that I'd just had 2 of them.

Got mine switched through Amazon but have lost a day on delivery. Might be worth checking for those who have as mine was put back until the 25th until i spoke to customer service.

Amazon would not let me swap and said i have to cancel my Fifa order and re-order the Forza Bundle.

So amazon how do you prepose i do that when you have sold out of the forza bundle?

So i'm stuck with Fifa, how hard is it to swap over a digital code??.....A complete joke if you ask me.

Thanks amazon.

Just changed my local Game store pre-order that I made back in June for the Forza one. Guy told me they were only allocated 4 of the Forza bundles. They wouldn't do it over the phone so I spent my lunch hour sorting it out face to face.

Cannot wait.

I think maybe they should of had a little more to pick from but then again i pre ordered mine when it was just the console so anything free is a bonus

Bit of a shame really. Hope everyone who got one really wanted the game. Sadly for me, I don't care about football and racing games aren't my thing either. If a Dead Rising 3 bundle gets announced, I'll be round my local GAME before the page has finished loading. :lol:

I'm surprised they have released a number of bundles. I'd go for a watch dogs one myself.

I put my money down the first week Game started taking preorders and have just been told I can't swap for a Forza edition. That's the price of loyalty I guess.

I keep telling myself that when I preordered I wasn't expecting a free game at all so it's not that bad... Still bloody annoyed though!

Could always pre-order this bad boy if you've got £560 burning a hole in your pocket...

I've contacted Amazon about changing my order first by phone where the guy didn't have a clue and was convinced I wasn't supposed to receive any free game at all and then by email and they said they will let me know within 2 days. Not holding out much hope though. Can't blame them though I guess if they are sold out. I think it would be nice if Microsoft had been more open about their plans from the start. That way people could have chosen the game they preferred for themselves. As someone else said it almost feels like being loyal and ordering early had backfired. I know it's still a free game but it definitely rankles knowing that if I'd waited I could have had a game I love instead of a game I'm not interested in at all.

I'm a bit sceptical that I will actually get my Day One edition on 'day one' as I have pre-ordered with Amazon and they are notorious for not delivering games on release day so I'm expecting console delivery to follow suit - a Day Four edition if you will.

Still, I had £125 worth of Amazon vouchers to spend so I am willing to take a hit in order to get the console for just over £300 with a free game. Not too shabby.

Hoping Shopto get some more in stock. Their site slowed down around the same time and either BT or SKY decided to "fix" the line yesterday, so the internet was out for four or five hours.

Walked into my local Game 2 hours ago and asked if they had any Day One editions left. Was told that they had only 2 left, so I bit the bullet and preordered. Guess I was one of the lucky ones.
