For a limited time, popular 360 DLC gets discounted

Through the end of October, Microsoft is running an "Extended Play Download Days" promotion on the Xbox Live Marketplace, where they've selected and discounted a few sets of popular DLC.

The discount priced DLC includes content from Beautiful Katamari, Forza 2, Guitar Hero III, Mass Effect and Oblivion with savings ranging from 25-60% off the original prices. That means you can get Mass Effect's Bring Down The Sky DLC for 300 (originally 400), Oblivion's Shivering Isles for 1600 (originally 2400) and GHIII's Foo Fighters Pack for 360 (originally 500). View the complete list of discounted Extended Play Download Days DLC after the jump.

Gears, Forza 2, Viva PiƱata become UK Classics

In the UK, beginning May 16, gamers will be able to pick-up a trio of titles marked down and packaged as Xbox 360 Classics. Late last week Microsoft announced plans to add Gears of War, Forza Motorsport 2 and Viva Piñata to their classic line-up, the PAL region equivalent of the Platinum Hits brand in North America.

As yet another push into a market where the brand is known (sorry, bad example), but not as popular as they would like, Microsoft hopes adding three fantastic titles priced to go at £19.99 will entice new gamers into the Xbox 360 camp.

Forza 2 shifts a retail gear to $29

Have yet to pickup Forza Motorsport 2 simply because your video game allowance has been in the red for the past year? If so, we have good news, because Microsoft just announced that the retail price for Forza 2 has dropped to a rather nice $29.99 in the U.S. Heck, for that price, you may even want to throw in the fire-starting wireless racing wheel as well. But that'd probably put your gaming budget further into the red ... oh well, you only live once. Race on fanboys, race on!

Forza 2 March Car Pack is ready for download

Just an informative reminder to our Forza Motorsport 2 racing fanboys (though, we doubt one is really needed), the March Car Pack is available for download off the Xbox Live Marketplace right this very moment.

As you probably know, The March Car Pack costs a medium 400 Microsoft points and includes thirteen new cars for your racing pleasure. And since we know how much Forza 2 fanboys love their vehicles, we've added new car pack photos into their own gallery below for you to gush over. Thank us later. If you have an extra 400 points laying around, we advise supporting Turn 10 and all the hard work they've put into Forza 2 and its abundant DLC. Happy downloading race fans!

Forza 2 March Car Pack details and events

Over the weekend, we mentioned that Turn 10 was releasing a brand new set of Forza 2 downloadable content that's scheduled to release this week. Today, we have all the deets.

The Forza 2 March Car Pack will be available this Wednesday, March 19th via the XBLM for 400 Microsoft points and be comprised of thirteen brand new rides. Masculine rides including Ferraris, Maseratis and even the 360 themed Peugeot 207 Super 2000. Complete car list after the break. Also, to give the Forza 2 community a boost and to celebrate the March Car Pack's launch, Turn 10 will be participating in Xbox.com's Game with Developers program and a special Play & Win will be launched as well. More event details are to come, but for now all you really need to know is that new DLC is this Wednesday ... vroom on.

Forza 2 March Car Pack DLC releases next Wed

Turn 10 has been busy as a beaver as of late, releasing new vehicle packs and new racetracks for Forza Motorsport 2 over the past few months. And, lucky for us, March will be one of those grand Forza 2 DLC months with the announcement of the upcoming March Car Pack.

Odd thing about this new March Car Pack is that we have yet to hear the announcement come from Turn 10 or Microsoft's mouths, as we learned of its existence from an exclusive DLC trailer (embedded above) that was released last night. So that means we don't have too many details pertaining to its cost or what's exactly included in the pack, though fans in the Forza 2 forums pretty much nailed down which new vehicles the DLC will offer. What we do know is that the Forza 2 March Car Pack will come packed with brand new rides and be released next Wednesday, March 19th. So hold tight, plant your feet firmly on the ground and hope that Turn 10 is generous in their pricing (ahem, free?)

Video: Preview Forza 2's December Car Pack

With Forza Motorsport 2's upcoming downloadable content headed our way this Friday, Turn 10 has just released a new trailer to build upon the anticipation. The trailer features some of the new cars that'll be available in Friday's release of the December Car Pack and Road America DLC. We're still waiting on a complete list cars that outlines what will be included in the Car Pack and still are in the dark about Road America, so you'll have to be detective-like and gather as much information as you can from the trailer. Enjoy the teaser now and know that tomorrow all Forza 2 DLC details will be revealed.

Forza 2 DLC brings new track and cars on Friday

In the latest Pit Pass report, developer Turn 10 revealed that this Friday, December 7th they'll be releasing a new set of Forza Motorsport 2 downloadable content. They're keeping quiet about specifics, but we do know that the new DLC will feature eleven new cars and one race track that's a remake of an old Forza favorite (and it's not Fujimi Kaido). All in all, you'll be able to grab the new cars for 400 Microsoft points, the track at 100 points or both for 500 points (addition FTW!) Turn 10 promises more DLC details sometime midweek ... so start waiting.

Download Forza 2's Motegi Track Pack

We mentioned the new content a few days back and again last night, but we think it deserves another post today seeing that it just hit the Marketplace this morning (super justified). The newly price reduced Forza Motorsport 2 Fontegi Track Pack featuring Japan's famous Twin Ring Motegi race track is available for download at a 400 Microsoft point price. The new track includes four separate racing routes (including three off road and one highway) and is available to all Xbox Live regions. If you have Forza 2 and were contemplating purchasing the new track, then we think you should back Turn 10 and not feel guilty about shelling out 400 points. They are what we call "good peeps".

Turn 10 hears community, drops Forza 2 DLC price

We always knew the developers over at Turn 10 were awesome folks, but we never knew they were this awesome.

After announcing tomorrow's release of a new 600 Microsoft point downloadable Twin Ring Motegi race track for Forza Motorsport 2, Turn 10 has since changed their mind and is dropping the price before the content even becomes available. Posting on the official Forza 2 forums, community manager chespace mentioned the price change and says that he was able to convince the marketing folks to drop the price to 400 points due to the Forza 2 community's feedback. Can you believe it? A developer actually listening to their community and lowering content price before it gets released. Mad props to you Turn 10 and now we can't help but recommend tomorrow's new 400 Microsoft point DLC. High five guys, high five.

[Thanks, to everyone who sent this in]

New Forza 2 racing turf releasing this Friday [update]

Update: Gamespot revealed that the new track is Twin Ring Motegi and will cost a painful 600 Microsoft points (ouch!). Screenshots, Q&A and video available here.

Mentioned in their latest Pitpass Report, developer Turn 10 confirmed that this Friday, October 26th a new Forza Motorsport 2 race track will be ready for download off of the XBLM (pending any Microsoft cert delays). We believe that the new track will be free, but not much is known about it as no name or screenshots have release. But Turn 10 did hint that today one lucky website will be exclusively revealing all the track's details. So, we'll keep one eye on the web, one eye on the Marketplace and a third borrowed eye on the road, because we have new DLC coming to Forza 2.

[Thanks, Tony]

Holiday Xbox 360 bundles are official

It's not like we didn't see this offer headed down the pipeline, but now it's 100% official. This morning Microsoft sent out a press release announcing the release of the planned Xbox 360 holiday bundles. Starting sometime near the end of October, consumers will start seeing all new Xbox 360s and Xbox 360 Elites come bundled with both Forza Motorsport 2 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. This bundling of games will of course help with Microsoft's plans at world domination this holiday season and hopefully win over the hearts of Wii crazy mothers.

Next up, the confirmation of the Xbox 360 Arcade which we say will be announced sometime next week. Place your bets.

New Forza 2 DLC available soon

Forza fans finally have something to be excited about. After tooling around for months with the same ol' boring cars, Microsoft has announced new downloadable content for Forza Motorsport 2. Technically, there are two bits of DLC, including one free car and an additional pack of ten cars for 400 MS Points. The free car is the 2007 SEAT Leon Cupra. The pay content includes cars from all over the spectrum, including American muscle, European sports, and Japanese tuners. While no specific date is given, the content should be on Xbox Live Marketplace sometime this weekend. See the full list of new cars after the break.
