I've despised BestBuy my entire life; I only go there to walk around and drool. I never buy anything, until now. They KNEW the 1M would attract huge numbers of forum goers like us, so they raised the price to screw us then dropped the price after 90% of the pre orders were in so when it hits the shelve they are competitive once more with walmart, new egg, amazon etc.

Screw BestBuy.


But I say all this with a tiny grin, 'cause Imma fkn THRASH that 1M on my virtual race track. With all that low end torque, keeping traction through the corners will be difficult.........and I cannot WAIT to lose traction and drift that bad boy!!

The $10 price drop doesn't annoy me nearly as much as the fact that the website wouldn't accept my rewards zone card when I ordered it. So thats 590 points wasted.

wow, I think BestBuy yanked it off the site, Hooy. I was just there 48 hours ago and they had the LCE (It has the blue F10 M5 on the cover, normal F4 has the 458). I pre ordered mine at least a month ago, maybe two months. The very second I found out LCE was strictly BMW I basically sprinted to my PC to pre order haha.

I do recall hearing that BestBuy was looking at a LCE shortage, and the same friend told me that the normal forza 4 will still include the 1M once it hits the shelves (only at best buy, tho; i.e. - you might not have to pre order it).

But to those that don't know BOTH normal and LCE get the 1M if pre ordered. That much is for sure.

How much is the LCE supposed to be? I pre-ordered at $80.

I don't care TOO much for the 1M because it is unlockable in any version, but I had to have the LCE.

I didn't know the 1M was unlockable!! What the hell did I pre order for then!?? haha

The LCE was $89 USD when I ordered, then they dropped back to $79.

Haha! I'm getting it from Bestbuy for a couple of reasons, none of which are very good.

1. I hate gamestop more
2. I'd rather get the 1M instead of an Alfa hatchback or a giant Mini
3. It was the only place left with it here


And yes, I got mine for $80. That sucks. I'd definitely get it price matched.

Wait I am confused. You guys didn't put a deposit? oo was it cause you guys ordered online? I went to the store and only put down a 5 dollar deposit because the guy told me the price might fluctuate since I pre ordered like a longgg time ago the LCE.

Won't you guys get refunds though?? I know at the store, bestbuy always price matches things.

I'm going to walk it into the store when it gets here, or call their customer service. I preorderd mine online, so its paid in full.

Talk about being pretty tight, I pre ordered the LCE about a month and a half ago and just got an email today that best buy canceled my order and refunded my money because of a shortage....reallyyyyy does suck, they are offering a 20 dollar gift card and 1600 microsoft points if I change and get the regular edition. Talk about a mood killer

Anyways can't wait to start playing, xbox live id: Silent30, will update with pic of car once I get home, can't upload pics through iPhone app :/

I just got the same email, I'm so pissed. I placed my order the day it appeared on their website. I wonder if they are filling ANY orders for the LCE?



I also just found this free BMW M5 premium theme from Forza 4. Get it while you can.

BMW M5 Theme (FREE)

Download this theme.

I ordered mine in a Best Buy store for $90.

Best Buy is just so slimy. Its the first game ive preordered there and they charge you $5 to preorder it and then they dont let you pay it off ahead of time.
Gamestop has a much better system and they dont charge you a gee to do it.




And all this is confusing my dad. Im forcing him to pick up my LCE because im not in the country. haha. and since I couldnt pay it off ahead of time hell know that im paying nearly $100 for a game. Ohh dear...

I hope they do with FM4 as they did with FM3, and make the VIP package available for purchase sometime later. I can use the 1600 MS points Best Buy gave me as a "make good" towards that.

Go and check the retail locations.. their inventory is separate from the online one, and they might have more available.
