Just saw this. There's a pre-order incentive for Forza Horizon. Pre-order at participating stores and you'll get a code now to download the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 in FM4, with FH livery. Sweet! If you live in the US, UK and Europe, that is. If you live in Africa, on the other hand, you get NOTHING Sad

Here's the link, fortunate ones: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I never pre-order any games. I suppose I'm just paranoid that I am going to spend 80 bucks for a game I might not like

I had it pre-ordered on Amazon, then I canceled... If I pick it up, I will pick up the LCE version for the VIP access.... Seeing what VIP provides in FM4, It's a nobrainer for FH...

Yup, but it's not out for pre-order yet... at least not on Amazon....

I checked for it in Canada, best I found was EB Games, you get the Challenger for FM4 and the Mercedes for Horizon but they don't have the LCE version yet. I am with Lou, LCE for me so I will be waiting.

Amazon is my retailer of choice but GameStop and Wal-Mart have the LE Skus available for order already. Although I can't make sense of the Microsoft Store not having it posted yet, I assume marketing clowns signed some paper allowing those jerks a head start. To ensure I get my name on a LE I have chosen the lesser of two evils and have my order in at Wal-Mart.

...I also still have my Amazon preorder from a few months ago open. If/when they get the LE I'll make the switch on Amazon and cut the Wal-Mart order loose. This is way too complicated.

The good news is that, having had the Amazon version preordered already, I got my Challenger right away. I posted it in the club garage in case anybody wanted a closer look at it. It's...not awesome...but I sorta have a hard-on for these Challengers so I'm admittedly a smidge giddy about it.

I am ordering it today through Bestbuy. I have to change my default e-mail though. If my wife sees the bill she will kill me, lol.

Hmm, wouldn't mind having that Ferrari. Looks like I'll have to make my way to GameStop soon. I do wish we had more details about the game though. I guess we're assuming it'll be just as deep and fun as the main series.

They won't bill you until it ships...

Also... the only place that is offering the LCE pre-order in the states seems to be GameStop... and they won't deliver the Challenger in FM4 until it ships...

Gonna wait for the Amazon LCE offer... they will deliver the challenger when you preorder...

@xray - I look at it as an extension of FM4 rather than a new game... We should be able to set up our own events, races, etc.... Open world could be fun... I ran some test laps for August last night, and I LOVED running that A-class tune on Fujimi.... Kinda makes me think what FH could be.... FM4 is the racer.... FH is the driver....

Just ordered it today...will have to wait and see how long it takes to get the code for the Challenger for FM4.

Is it just me or does it seem odd that a big American company like BestBuy would offer the LCE version in Canada but not yet in the States?

Like I mentioned earlier, Wal-Mart carries the LCE also. I've spoken with Amazon and Microsoft Store customer service and they either have no idea what I am talking about (Amazon) or confirm that they have no LCE sku in their system (Microsoft). The clerk at the Microsoft store shared my suspicions that marketing douchebaggery is at work and there is a possibility other retailers will never carry it. I hope not, but I am preparing for it regardless.

I'm not a Wal-mart fan but I despise Gamestop. They can keep their 458, it'll just be DLC later anyway. Amazon and Wal-Mart preorders remain active.

As you mentioned earlier, it's a choice between two evils. I think Walmart is by far the worst of the two though since GameStop's questionable practices by and large only effect gamers. You're probably right about all of those cars being offered later as DLC.

That's a totally fair point and I hadn't thought about it that way. I swore a boycott on GameStop during the Deus Ex: Human Revolution release and that has me a bit shortsighted. Like Lou, I am going to continue hoping that Amazon gets to carry the LCE...but in the end I can't not get the LCE. I just can't.

I'm going to curl up in the fetal position and cry if they don't offer the LCE in South Africa. And I'll collect every tear and mail it to Microsoft in a bottle.

But we got FM4's, so I'm really hoping ...

Looks like South Africa uses PAL? I was going to offer to backup-plan buy one for you, but that would be of little use. Here's hoping y'all get it!

LCE Pre-order is up on Newegg.com...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I love Newegg, and since Amazon doesn't seem to have the LCE up yet, I may order from Newegg... I'm fine with the 370Z, and it can be tuned for both A and S class... ;-)
