So it seems my limited edition is now not so limited. Don't get me wrong I'm glad everyones got access to the cars and tracks as I thought that was a poor move to start off with. That doesn't stop me feeling just a bit shafted though.

Anyway theres some things Xbox Live credits can't buy:

Yeah, I can live without a keyring and USB stick. Razz

I'm still having to pay just as much as anyone who spent the money on the physical product - £40.00 and the VIP content is about £12.00.

.....so my VIP status means jack squat now...

Seriously, Turn10, why must you screw over the people you actually spend the extra $10 USD for the LCE, for what now? just a 2GB Flash Card and keychain..... 800M$-points is the same as $10 USD though.... so i guess those who REALLY want this [MOD EDIT - PLEASE REREAD THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, SWEARING IS NOT ALLOWED] can finally get it...

...that flash drive and kaychain has never seen the light of day. 8GB microSD > Fm3 2GB FlashDrive

I don't know, that depends on how over the top you are going to get with this.

There's a good reason for them, it's not a case of going 'over the top.'

It isn't allowed, end of story.

This is BS, the T10 part. I spent so much time saving, plus my 3 or 4 games I traded in to get the %^$^$# VIP service, for the 20 extra bucks, now people can go and get everything I was saving for for 10 bucks. I couldn't care less about my keychain and flashdrive and I have a nice 4gb flashdrive, and I don't use keychains. I'm going to end this post before I get myself banned.

What a joke, Limited Edition isn't so Limited anymore is it. What is the point of this VIP when pretty much everyone will now be a VIP.

So we were lied to by T10 saying all this stuff was exclusive to the LCE, so really we all payed that extra cash for a key chain and a memory stick.

T10 continue to rip off the community.

wait wait wait.

The cost of buying these extras (1600msp) is more than the extra cost of the LCE, what are people complaining about???

The fact VIP was supposed to be EXCLUSIVE and T10 has just lied to every poor sod that went and bought the LCE.

Everyone has already quit hotlapping, i know a few of the VVV guys have just gone and got a PS3 instead, and if this carries on i might end up getting one too.

To be quite frank, I had no chance of getting the LE as nowhere near me stocked it, despite how much I wanted it. And internet wasn't an option.

So am I to lose out because I could not get a copy? I applaud Turn 10 for doing this, as it gives me a chance to get the content I could not find on release. Plus, as has already been stated, it costs much more off marketplace than buying the LE and we don't get the extras.

VIP is still exclusive as you have to pay for the priviledge, much more than those who got the release LE did!

To be frank, I went from not caring, to being rather annoyed at paying the extra, to now not caring again. At the end of the day, it hasn't changed any of the content of the game for me, or the experience. I know it cost more to be in the first place, me of all people should know that, as I bought forza for £40, traded it in for £20 to get the LCE for £60, so all in all it cost me £80!

But that's in the past now, and I don't care. Life goes on...

Why is everyone moaing so much?! '' Ooooh, we have been treated badly, ooooohh.. ''

We all take Forza 3, and howdamn good a sim it really is, for granted these days, can't we just enjoy a damn good game?! Seriously guys, sit back, take a little break and appreciate Forza as a racing sim rather than getting all worked up about DLC's and testing for TORA races. Have some fun with it! The only reason I have an xbox is because its the only way I can properly enjoy some casual online racing with some people and live out my racing driver fantisies!

But if it really bothers you guys that much...

For me, the main kicker is just being lied to. When I was buying the LCE up to when I got it, I was told and under the impression that this was exclusive, not just "exclusive for now." Like I said before, I saved up tons of my money (only work off a $5 allowance/money I get from family) AND traded my games thinking "This will be worth it, because it isn't something that just anyone can get." I'm glad this gives a chance for people who couldn't before for reasons out of their hands, but I'm mad that all the effort I put in was for nothing. Now, some schmo can buy the regular version for $60, pay $10 and have all of the benefits I have for less than what I bought. The keychain and flashdrive so nothing for me, so I don't give a "care" that I had VIP before it became VIP for anyone who wants it.

I knew it would happen, plus its not fair to only offer VIP to people who got the LCE, the next generation of people wont have the chance.

Plus it costs around as much we paid for the LCE.
