Oh a****. I feel slightly scammed :)

 

Thought the Play Anywhere feature was for any XBox game that mentioned it.... but no. Only digital copies. ie: Purchased online and downloaded.

 

Not physical copies. ANd guess what I got. 

 

Yup...... guess I have to obtain a digital copy somehow instead and flog off the physical copy.

Awww stink! I see there are lots of digital codes for sale on Trademe for $49 dollars. No idea if that's cheap though.

Yep play a fair bit of FH4 - am enjoying it heaps - albeit the obsessive part of me sees me spending as much time grinding skill points, upgrading cars and trying to score deals in the auction house as much as I do actual racing : /

I don't play heaps of Forza H4, but I did get it as part of my gamepass, and I have to say, the graphics are absoloutely unbelievable! 

 

I went through a glade on a sunny day and the light being let in through the leaves, onto the road and then the bonnet of my car was breathtaking (no YOU'RE breathtaking!).

Use the map filter to turn off all the markers. Zoom in. There are some tiny bits of road between farm buildings, etc.
