Well this is a fantastic way to kick off what will be week filled with ridiculous deals. As the title explains, all you need to do is choose two of the three games mentioned above, and you'll be charged just £50. While Halo 5 has been around that price point recently, the fact you can get the latest Forza or Tomb Raider for that price as well is a fantastic deal. Act fast though, as this is (the first of many) a flash deal that will appear over the next seven days. Thanks to Danjw91 @ HUKD!
The price for Forza 6 was already pretty good by today's standards, but the new Rakuten voucher code has made a good deal even better. It brings the price well below the £35 mark, making it the cheapest we've seen for Turn 10's latest. We go into more detail in our review, but it's Forza 6 delivers the finest current-gen racer available thanks to its intuitive handling, incredible sense of speed, and plenty of cars and tracks to experience. The Ten Year Anniversary Edition also includes ten additional cars, including the 2012 BMW M5, 2005 Honda NSX-R, 2013 McLaren P1, and the 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

This price is made all the sweeter by the fact it's actually the 10 Year Anniversary Edition. This includes ten extra cars with unique anniversary liveries and they'll already be highly tuned. Amongst others, you'll find the likes of the 2012 BMW M5, 2005 Honda NSX-R, 2013 McLaren P1, and the 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4. The 10% code brings the price down to £36.86, which is pretty damn good for a Microsoft-published game in launch week. Note: you must be signed in at Rakuten to use the code.
My Forza Motorsport 6 review went live last night and I was very impressed with the game. Here's a taste: "Say hello to Forza 6, this generation's finest racer. Turn 10's racer certainly has the looks, but it's the raw speed and intuitive handling that make the occasionally over-long races thrilling from start to finish.
It's all about speed and control. Speed is that vital ingredient to racing games that has us coming back for more. Just how fast can we go and stay in control? Maintaining control of the car, holding a fragile grip on the road just long enough to hold the line around that corner is all that matters. Speed and control make every corner a fight, a neck-and-neck paint-trading tussle between you and your fear of flying off the track or braking too soon and losing ground on the chase and that all-important speed. Forza 6 nails speed and control.
There's a sweet spot to be found in Forza 6, where you're challenged just enough by the AI and the driving aids are tuned to ensure every race is an exhilarating adrenaline rush. That's not to say the AI difficulty options are completely reliable though. Sometimes you'll go from winning multiple tight races in a row only to find the next one has the two lead cars are so far in front of you, you'll think you're in first until you notice the 3/24 indicator in the corner.
For the most part though, the difficulty evens out and with so many settings, there really is something for all players. Usually in racing games, rubber-banding in the AI means you always have a chance of catching up. Forza 6 says pish to this, although it's happy to keep a racer or two right behind you, even letting them magically catch up over half a lap if you shunt them into the gravel and tyres.Click here to read more...
It also packs a 1TB hard drive, but making "vroom" noises when you turn it on is clearly the major selling point.Click here to read more...
Forza Motorsport 6 finally broke cover at E3 2015. Microsoft even lowered the new GT40 from the ceiling to celebrate, though we already know that it basically just offers loads of cars, tracks and sumptuous graphics. If that sounds like your cup of tea, this new pre-order deal smashes the £40 mark wide open with months to go.
