    I may be wrong, but Battlefield Hardline at £32.99 is not 50% off for UK, when originally priced at £54.99...

    I am thinking of buying Forza Horzion 2 digital edition but pretty confused by the amount of DLC available for this game. What am I missing out on compared to the Deluxe and Ultimate editions? Does any of the DLC in those version matter (or help) for achievement purposes?

    Edit:
    If I buy the Forza Horizon 2 VIP pass, will it give me further discount on Storm Island DLC?
    If I buy Forza 5 VIP pass, will it give me a discount on Forza Horizon 2 VIP pass?
    Are these VIP passes useful for achievements?

    As far as I'm aware, Slysy - no, no and no.

    VIP Pass only gives money off RRP, not sale price.

    Does buying Battlefield 4 Premium on the 360 still give you access to the premium content on the XB1?

    Why is Forza Horizon 2 more expensive on the 360 than the One?
    Popularity is not a measure of quality, but a measure of how idiotic that thing's following is.

    Forza Motorsport 4's Season Pass DLC should be under Xbox 360 DLC without Achievements instead of Xbox 360 DLC with Achievements.

    They learn't their lesson from FM5 so you won't have to grind before you can afford a car for the next event. However if you get money twice as fast, there really is no denying that you will get achievements like
    Forza Horizon 2Worthy of a SultanThe Worthy of a Sultan achievement in Forza Horizon 2 worth 123 pointsHave 175 Cars in your Garage.
    quicker.

    I had enough money to buy the best car before every championship and then spend the same amount again upgrading that car to X class. I could then complete the race faster and against harder opponents, which in turn gave me more money. In FM5 I bought every car in the game before I was done, and I am pretty close to owning every car in FH2 and I have only completed 16 out of 168 championships.

    While yeah it would give you more money in time after 168 championships I wasn't exactly begging on the street for money :P
