Every car in Forza 5 is half off this weekend, credit payout increasing in December

Turn 10 Studios is discounting every car in Forza Motorsport 5 by 50 percent from Friday, November 29 through Sunday, December 1 following community feedback for the game. The developer is also offering VIP members the 2013 Lotus E21 grand prix car for free and the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO for those that already purchased the E21.

Turn 10 is also changing the game’s economy by “dramatically increasing the credit payout available to all Forza players” in the month of December through its Forza Rewards loyalty program. The developer notes that the higher a player’s tier level is before Sunday, the better the rewards will be, so those that spend extra time in Forza 5 in the coming days will see a nicer payout next month.

Additionally, the developer admitted that the 1,250 in-game credits packed with the limited edition version of the game isn’t enough to buy any car in the game as advertised. To make up for it, limited edition owners will soon be able to download an on-disc car of their choice for free. Owners of the LaFerrari launch car pack or the Forza 5 car pass will also receive the 2013 LaFerrari for free.

PlayStation 4 Includes Free Month Of Plus, $10 Store Credit

For a limited time, Sony is rewarding PlayStation 4 buyers with a trio of bonuses. One of them means that everyone will have access to Resogun and Contrast for free on day one.

In every PlayStation 4 box, Sony will be including vouchers for 30 days of PlayStation Plus, 30 days of PlayStation music, and $ 10 in PlayStation Store credit. PlayStation Plus gives you access to free games (as long as your membership is current), which means everyone will be able to download and play Instant Game Collection titles on November 15.

Sony hasn’t specified how long this offer will be hanging around for. If you’re getting a console at launch though, you can expect to find these nestled up against your PS4.

[Source: PlayStation Blog]

 

Our Take
Sony’s approach with PlayStation Plus since the introduction of Instant Game Collection has been brilliant. Hooking people with free games during the PS3 era meant building a subscriber base that offered less resistance to moving multiplayer behind the paywall. Including a free month for everyone at launch is a smart incentive that will convert new owners into long-term subscribers.

GameStop holding special trade-in event for PS4 credit on Sunday

GameStop holding special tradein event for PS4 credit

This Sunday, November 10, GameStop will hold a pre-launch PS4 event where customers can trade in pre-owned hardware, software or other consumer electronics for extra credit toward the PlayStation 4, games and accessories. Let’s stress this point: The extra credit can only be applied to PS4 related items.

“This allows consumers the ability to purchase a PS4 at a more affordable price, making it more accessible for gaming fans,” said Darron Nielsen, senior merchant of GameStop. We don’t fault you for imagining a senior merchant wearing a big, feathery admiral hat.

All “eligible” (so, make sure to call ahead) GameStop stores will stay open November 14 for the console’s launch at midnight. Obviously, you’ll have to pre-order.
