This game got a great second live with the free Forza Horizon 1000 Club Expansion DLC. Only down side is that you have to buy some of the car packs in order to get some of the achievements attached to it.

Finally found all the roads one of them was a on ramp to a highway and the second one I found by accident playing it online not quiet done with the game yet since the online is actually pretty good and I will try to get most of the online achievements also.

I'd be surprised if it can't pass 2 million eventually on its own. Might take some price cuts and a few years though. We also don't know if there will be another on the 360.

I beat all the competitors and that's good enough for me. I won't be doing all the extra stuff. I got the achievement for driving on all roads, my only advice is zoom in and look at the map thoroughly.

I doubt it can come close to 2 million without bundling should be able to sell over 1.5 million without bundling. Though with bundles it will sell a lot more then 2 million. Close to finishing the offline portion of the game the last showcase event hasn't appeared yet and still missing two barnyard finds. Also missing two roads but have no clue where they could be since on my map it looks like I have been everywhere, 11 discount signs and one speed zone.

I hope it can sell 2 million without bundling. I want more of this. Only 900K away!

Awwwww... hunter_alien is bitter so he's spewing anecdotal evidence.

Sony should have did some of that bundling with their 2012 games. Maybe it would have fooled us into believing they had a hit. Sony wishes any of their 2012 games sold like Horizon.

Nice sales Dropping the price of the game 2 weeks after release, and retailers giving it away with bundles, just to get rid of the leftovers, usually does that

It looks like there was an MS bundle, but there is no info about it whatsoever.

Maybe a EU exclusive launch bundle or something, but certainly didn't affect the sales of this game very much.

@ r3tr0gam3r1337 - I looked into it, there is a some Forza Horizon bundling with 250GB consoles. Looks like those bundles are more expensive and I'm not seeing much info online about it. So it clearly wasn't a mass bundling.

@ Rockyb - Even without bundling it performs better than most exclusive games.

Forza 3 sold about 3 million units without bundling. Now go see how many exclusive IPs achieve that on PS3 and Xbox. Spoiler alert, not many.

@ Normando - How many franchises really pick up a big following from bundling? Realistically... not many.

I believe the bundling helped the series grow and maintain strong sales. Ultimately, the series is profitable and has helped move hardware as bundle software for years.

People are too concerned over the sales of this series. Yet it seems clear MS is happy with its performence.

@ Normando - Forza 3 was heavily bundled, it probably sold about 3 million if you exclude bundling.

Forza 4 sold about 2 million in a year which is very respectable. I think if the series maintains sales at par with that they'll keep pushing them out.

Amazing game, but disappointed to see that only one other person on my friends list bought the game, when almost all of them bought FM4. I know that some of them didn't want to buy it because the season pass was too expensive.

Normando posted 15/11/2012, 04:51
So far sales have been pretty good. I agree that it will probably break a million this holiday. Not sure if it's all that helpful to the franchise though, it seems that most people who bought it were already Forza fans.

I think Forza 5 might be a make or break game for Forza. Forza 4 sales are doing little more that crawling at this point and that means a good chunk of Forza 3 buyers didn't pick it up showing a shrinking fanbase. I'd hate to see it die off since it's a good series but it's not doing that well.

sales2099 posted 09/11/2012, 06:52
@ retrogamer: Because based on sales so far it will have broke at least a million by years end. 2013 left over sales mean its a profit.

@Vgking: This isnt LBP Karting or PASBR.....or 9 out of 10 of every PS3 exclusive. Its at 500k in a few weeks. Itll go over a million in the holidays.

how can forza horizon be self sustaining when it's only been out 3 week's, the forza franchise is selfsustaining but this game has a big challenge ahead of it namely xmass and halo 4.

VGKing posted 09/11/2012, 05:48
Wonder why Microsoft sent this game to die? I mean racing genre isn't that popular anymore(especially not in America) but releasing it right before Halo 4? Bad move. I guess its good to have 2 AAA titles for the holidays. Forza for Europe and Halo for America? Yeah I guess that makes sense.

Another profitable game surely. At least Forza is now a self sustaining franchise. The brand awareness and increased sales will come with time

I agree that sales are pretty good for a spin off but I'm also thinking that they may be a bit disapointing considering the game was supposed to be a Forza with wider appeal. I'd be interested to see how many buyers are new to the Forza series.

I was hoping to read these comments before the mass transit of flame warz, but those have already begun. Anyway, glad to see it's off to a good start. I honestly expected 100,000 max for this game. I've heard nothing but good things. Also, Turn 10 didn't develop this game, I think they helped on it a little, but the real dev is playground games. They're even credited as the devs on xbox.com, interestingly enough, Turn 10 is credited as co-publishers next to MS.

Pretty good numbers for a spin off. Also I agree with footfather that NSFSMW (2012) should outsell Forza: Horizon its a slightly better game so it deserves better sales. Also it should get more sales then between 1.5 -2.0 million lifetime since its a prime candidate for future hardware bundles.

Solid opening for a spin off. Sales should fall somewhere between Need for Speed the Run and Hot Pursuit. 1M by the end of the year. 1.6M by the time Forza 5 comes out. I have a feeling NFSMW(2012) will outset Forza Horizon.

sorry bud not to get personal but what's it to you, im not banned cause im not flaming or flamebaiting or calling anyone out, oh and yes Genera1MLD is perma banned.

i just gave my honest opinion about a game i was looking forward to untell the season pass and DLC were announced, i was'nt even going to get the game but as i enjoy playing the forza games i thought id give it a go, well as you can clearly see it's only forza by name and maybe by a few parts like the upgrades and car stats and i still feel the game was rushed and does not feel like a finished product, if you disagree that is entirely up to you as you're opinion is you're own much like mine however coming from such big names as turn 10 and microsoft past forza games have been huge while forza horizon is tiny.

wishing i had rented forza horizon, all i can say is what a huge disappointment, the game lacked challenge even online was too easy and within 4 days i had already finished all the single player races and challenges and most of the online races and xp with very little replay value i feel betrayed by turn 10 and microsoft for promising an alternative racing game with the physics and game play from forza motorsports 'where was it' no tuning option only to upgrade parts, very limited selection of cars most out of reach till the end of the game and online which should be fun is just a crash fest no matter who you race in the public servers they all just get to the first corner and use whoever is in front as the brakes (forza's before had a penalty system yet this is lacking in this game).

to me this just feels rushed even a few more months of development could have corrected a ton of problems including a tougher career progression and better online racing with that penalty system in place would stop half of the bumper car action meaning better races meaning better replay value.

lol fake you sorry pal but do you have to insult you're self all the time.

anyway now that i have found out about the season pass bullshit this will not be a day 1, month 1 or even year 1 purchase, this is now a renter, screw microsoft and turn 10 i made that mistake last year with forza 4 and wont make the same mistake again, season pass = content already available that should already be in the game yet take it out and charge even more for it, way to kill the video game industry.

oh and if you did not know here is just how much the season pass (6 months) will cost you $49.99 or 4000 microsoft points, almost the same price of the game again and you wonder why games on another console sell better here's a clue 'free DLC' more content in the actual game 'cheaper DLC'.

$60 for forza horizon and $50 for a 6 month DLC pass = ripoff game.

i hope microsoft learns from its mistakes cause if they carry on in this direction i can see a lot of people changing not just their console choice but their computer OS choice too.
