Microsoft and Forza Motorsport 3 are doing their damndest to put the brakes on any marketing speed Sony and GT5 have made by signing up BBC's Top Gear test track, with an Xbox 360 exclusive pack of Top Gear goodies.
"Forza Motorsport 3 Ultimate Collection available starting this October including exclusive download codes for Top Gear TV Content, Car Pack and Xbox LIVE theme," says the press release.
The detail? "Forza Motorsport 3 Ultimate Collection is the complete award-winning racing title, including all previously released Game add-ons, bringing the total car count to 500 and offering more than 100 track configurations. It includes an Xbox LIVE downloadable content card giving players access to three of the hottest new cars on the market today as part of "Stig?s Garage Car Pack." These include The Koenigsegg CCX, LEXUS LFA, and Mercedes Benz SLS-AMG. In addition to the car pack, the Top Gear downloadable content will also feature an exclusive 90-minute Top Gear video from lads on Top Gear including Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May and an Xbox LIVE Theme featuring Top Gear."
War is hell. Platform wars, less so but still pretty nasty... unless you're a consumer.
