History:
Several retailers in the US over-sold their allotment of pre-orders of the Limited Collector’s Edition resulting in many who pre-ordered not receiving a copy. Best Buy offered those effected the option of downgrading their pre-order to the standard edition and offering a $20 gift card to make up the difference in price between the Standard Edition and Limited Collector’s Edition. Walmart instead refunded everyone who ordered but did not receive the Limited Collector’s Edition and as an apology also sent a free copy of the standard edition to those effected in addition to a bonus code for an additional car.

    A limited quantity of Forza Motorsport 4 games at retail will include an exclusive in-game car pack available at launch that boasts five incredible cars for fans to race, tune, paint and share. This car pack, limited to the first production run of Forza Motorsport 4 game discs, will include:

    · Ford Mustang GT Coupe 1965: Take to the road in this classic American stallion, one of Ford’s most successful launch cars behind the Model A.

    · Koenigsegg Agera 2011: “The Agera--from the Swedish verb “to act”--celebrates 15 years of Koenigsegg’s uncompromising philosophy of making dream cars.”

    · Lexus SC300 1997: A classic personal luxury coupé, the SC300 combines a powerful racer with a 225bhp I6-powered engine.

    · RUF RGT-8 2011: The spectacular RGT-8 is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine that has been fine tuned to deliver unmatchable sports car power and curb appeal.

    · Tesla Roadster Sport 2011: For luxury car fans, the Roadster Sport is electric heaven. Get behind the wheel of this electric two-seater and go zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a peak rating of 288 horsepower.


    For Forza fans who crave the VIP treatment, a Limited Collector’s Edition will also be available. Details on the exclusive content the Limited Collector’s Edition will offer will be revealed at a later date, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Forza Motorsport 4.

    Lol, a limited quantity. Is there still anyone out there believing that?

  3. gurpswoo1:
    LOL I was going to say the same thing as Mrbubbles.

    The worst companies for that statement is Microsoft and Sony. They think that if they manufactured 100,00 copies it's limited.

    Thanks for the heads up on the two editions Mike1888, will add to list.

    Thanks for adding it to the database

  7. Twistedsymphony:
    Has this been confirmed for Europe as well? if so, what's the price?

  8. Twistedsymphony:
    Is there actually a difference between the "Limited Edition" and the "Limited Collector's Edition"? or is the "LE" just an old listing for the "LCE"?

  9. Ayiu:
    It has been confirmed for Europe too but price is not known yet.

    I'm not sure but I think it' just an old listing because the news are only talking about one Edition and not about a second. But maybe there will be a dlc only Edition this time, too

  11. Twistedsymphony:
    *** Added PAL LCE release ***

  12. scourdx:
    Hmm..apparently the Press kit version exist. It comes with USB key and other perks. It looks nice. I hope the CE will be like it.

  13. Twistedsymphony:
    FML I want that.

  14. Matrix6:
    Damn that's nice. Those tread marks decal look very similar to the one found on the Fast and Furious CE Bluray set box from Germany

  15. Venner:
    So want that press kit

  16. gurpswoo1:
    It looks like Best Buy in the USA is at it again and oversold their allocation of Forza 4 edition

    people are going crazy over this!!!..Microsoft is NOT the one to give up on the dollar..watch them flood the market with forza 4 limited editions in the upcoming weeks, especially with the hyped up demand "sold out" and media twist on this, i even saw a piece by the today show,..this collectors box is a hot item, with the holidays around the corner, no way is this "sold out"..this will be out there just like the halo 3 big shot bundles, for everybody to snap up..microsoft would be crazy not to cash in on this for Nov/Dec.

    I don't know about that... while they do usually flood the market with Halo I don't think they've ever produced a 2nd shipment of anything (they just usually over-produce the first shipment)

    Forza 1 and 2 both sold out without any reproduction as did all of the GOW releases.

  19. Twisted:
    i do know for a fact,...2 days ago,..amazon received another batch of the Forza 4 limited editions and they sold out fast (i was discussing it with customer service), in less than 24hours...and if you look at microsoft's website..it says "sold out"..but you can contact them via e-mail and ask when there will be a restock!?
