Forza 3 Mimics Gran Turismo Bonus Bug
Time to get some Q&A on the download contents.
We can probably attribute this to just odd coincidence, but it seems that Forza Motorsport 3 managed to mimic its arch rival Gran Turismo is the most unexpected of ways: through a bug.
When Gran Turismo hit PSP on October 1, Sony quickly sent out an apology over a slight slip-up. Apparently, the game's promised bonus download cars were not available for players until a few hours after release. Also, some players who were able to make the download ended up with buggy data.
Forza Motorsport 3 hit yesterday, and it was accompanied by an oddly similar issue. As detailed at the game's Xbox.com page, one of the bonus items in the game's Limited Edition suffered a bug that prevented players from downloading it to their 360. The difference from the GT bug is that the offending material here was just a Forza Motorsport 3 theme rather than a downloadable car.
As of this writing, Microsoft has yet to fix the issue. It promises an update once everything is in place.
