[Microsoft] 12 months of Xbox Game Pass + Forza Horizon 3 & Forza Motorsport 7 - $118 (+tax)

Links:
Xbox Game Pass store page
Xbox News post | Twitter posts: Major Nelson | Xbox Canada
Forza Horizon 3 store page | Forza Motorsport 7 store page

All digital purchases direct from Xbox Live/Microsoft.

Both Forza games are available for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Some Game Pass games are playable on Windows 10. Click here for available games, on the left side under "Collections", click "Xbox Play Anywhere". Both games also Xbox One X enhanced.

Forza Horizon 4 will be part of Game Pass at its release, October 2nd. Also for both Xbox and PC.

Offer expires September 30th. Codes for Forza games arrive "via Xbox Message Center, likely within 7-10 days, but no later than October 21, 2018."

Regular price of Xbox Game Pass: $11.99/month x 12 months = $143.88

Cheapest game prices I'm currently seeing:
Forza Horizon 3: $29.96 at The Source (if you can find it in-store) | $32.49 lowest for digital?
Forza Motorsport 7: $65-ish at Walmart or Costco | $39.99 digital low?

GCR currently offering 4.5% back ($5.31); Ebates 1.75% back ($2.07) on Game Pass.

misleading post. You should put $118 + tax since Microsoft store unlike other digital stores such as PSN and Steam charges taxes. So you are looking at $134ish....

Considering the vast majority of things posted on rfd are before being taxed its not misleading at all.

It is misleading because most digital purchases are not taxable.

It's a good deal but Forza 7 was 35.99$ last week on Xbox and there was a deal for both forza 7+Horizon 3 for 60$ I almost bought it but then I forgot. Too many old games I already own on game pass for me but it's good for new gamers I guess.

Game pass gives you all Xbox exclusives on release date.

But at this moment, not a lot yet so far compared to PS.

I'd say "misleading" is a bit much. But since sales tax is inconsistent for digital purchases, and it's useful info, sure.

You pay tax on apple, microsoft and nintendo purchases. You don't on google play, steam and psn. I wouldn't say that's most.

To remain on topic will forza 7 be coming to game pass eventually? I'm tempted by this mainy because i do want forza 7 and factoring that in as a 30-40 purchase it makes gamepass about 80 bucks for the year for me.

That was exactly my point. Some digital stores do include tax and some don't. So the posts should say +tax for the stores that include tax (I see that it's now updated).
