We love a bit of Forza 5 here at Dealspwn. For the sake of £4, we'd opt for the GOTY version as it represents a significant saving over buying the DLC at a later date. Check out our review of the original game.

We've got two cheap Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One deals for your attention today. The first is for the digital GOTY Edition, which is being sold for an insanely low £13.99 by very reputable eBay seller wanna-bid (Gamesbite). The code will have to be posted out to comply with eBay regulations, mind.
However, if you'd rather not use eBay or otherwise take the risk, 365Games are also selling the standard edition for £18.99 via email.
In case you were wondering, Forza 5 is an excellent track racer, as detailed in our 8/10 review, especially now that the worrisome microtransactions have been ironed out. Forza Horizon 2 is the superior game, though, so keep an eye out come Black Friday. Thanks to jazzywildchild @ HUKD!
We'll have a review for you soon, but Forza 5 is shaping up to be one of the hottest racers of the year and should be on the wishlist of any racing fan on the Xbox One. Gorgeous graphics and meticulous attention to detail even has this GT fan seething with green-eyed envy. Go on, look at that orange McLaren P1 and tell us you don't want it.
Thanks to OneAce at HotUkDeals.

There are a lot of racing games on their way, perhaps too many for those of us planning to splash out on a next-gen console soon. So which of them are shaping up to be worthy of your attention? I endured the queues and hardware crashes of the Eurogamer Expo to tear around various racetracks to bring you my impressions of five of the most anticipated racers of the future on both existing and next generation platforms.
After passing the real-life McLaren P1 -Forza 5’s flagship car- numerous times over the course of the Eurogamer Expo, I eventually gave in an joined the queue to see how it handled in the game, as chance are I wasn’t getting my hands on the real thing anytime soon.
It was worth the wait. As a late convert to the Forza series after Forza 4 ended up beating Gran Turismo 5 to the checkered flag by a few cars’ lengths, I was always keen to see what lied ahead.Click here to see what else the future holds for racing games.
Microsoft's product director Albert Penello believes that the Xbox One's launch titles have no equal on any competing platform, while reiterating his argument that games are more important than on-paper specifications. Well, he would say that I suppose.Click here to read more...
Early Xbox One adopters will be able to download special Day One versions of Forza 5, Ryse and Dead Rising 3, including extra DLC and bonuses.Click here to read more...
Xbox One's cloud computing potential has been one of the most confusing and fiercely-debated features of the upcoming entertainment system. Though latency issues mean that we almost certainly won't see GFX or lighting processing offloaded to Microsoft's server farms in the foreseeable future, Turn 10 Studios believes that Forza 5 will benefit from significantly improved AI thanks to its 'Drivatars' being handled server-side.
Which, in turn, frees up processing power for shinier visuals. Apparently.Click here to read more...
The Xbox One may not have online check-ins any more, but Forza 5 will require players to download a day-one content update before being able to play even the singleplayer portion. Effectively, the full game isn't actually on the disc.Click here to read more...
Sony won E3.
Whatever that means. See, despite their emphatic commitment to indie games, a fantastic price, powerful hardware and some very promising launch window games, much of their impact simply came from being the last press conference of the day. The Microsoft presser seemed like a distant memory; a thousand cold black coffees and energy drinks ago, almost forgotten as the PS4's £349 price point made everyone upstanding.
In the cold light of day, however, it's clear that we shouldn't count out the Redmond heavyweight just yet. Though Sony crushed Microsoft on that fateful evening, Xbox One still has plenty of tricks up its sleeve... and I do so love playing devil's advocate.
Yes, Kinect has raised a few eyebrows with potential privacy concerns and the potential for visual DRM. If you've ever watched Charlie Brooker's outstanding Black Mirror series ('15 Million Credits' specifically), it's easy to envision adverts that stop when you glance away, and executives peering into your living room to dominate your every purchasing decision.
On the other hand, Kinect is also capable of delivering one of the most convenient, enjoyable and frankly brilliant user experiences out there.Click here to read more...
E3 2013 is going to be utterly insane. With the next console generation breathing down our necks, the 'Big Three' of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are going head to head in a battle for hearts, minds and pre-orders. Coy digs will be taken. Terrible teleprompted jokes will be cracked. Dubstep will reign supreme.
Sadly, I won't be attending personally this year (of all years, argh!), but I've danced this dance enough times to know broadly what to expect from the all-important press conferences scheduled for June 10th. Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo will use this platform to address us directly; showing us exclusives, revealing entirely new franchises and confirming third-party support. We've pieced together everything we know so far, as well as our own experiences at E3 from previous years, to present you with a comprehensive breakdown of what the three console manufacturers will bring to the table.
Note that the following article is one part confirmed fact, two parts informed guesswork and a soupçon of rampant drooling speculation. I've endeavoured to make it clear which is which - and of course, there'll still be plenty of surprises along the way!
Let's start with the Redmond heavyweight, since they'll be holding their press conference first and have been making headlines aplenty over the last fortnight. Microsoft will look to supplement (and in many ways, make up for) the Xbox One's entertainment-loaded reveal event with a presentation concentrating on games, exclusives, DLC announcements and features.Click here to read more...
In perhaps the least exciting headline and story I've ever editorialised on, Microsoft has revealed the box art for Forza Motorsport 5... and with it, what Xbox One game packaging will look like. Spoiler alert: it's green.
However, a suggestive Top Gear logo all but confirms another Clarkson collaboration, perhaps with some themed tracks, voiceovers and an appearance from The Stig. You can behold the stately image after the break.Click here to read more...
