This is actually a CRAZY deal, I went to staples, and while that particular one did not have more stock, they confirmed that few Montreal stores have it at 5$! Apparently the deal expires tomorrow.

Here are the 3 stores that still showed stock:

Mont Royal (2 in stock) - 5143443044
Marche Centrale (1) - 5143836323
Cavendish (2) - 5143684858

Tried to PM with FS and BB, but the ones I went to, had no stock!

Yeah pretty awesome price, oos in all areas around me but you can still buy at amazon.ca. Though the wait time is 1-2 months for delivery.

should I grab it since I have Forza 4 already? I know Forza 4 is more like track-based racing and horizon is more street one. worth to own both?

Is the Staples deal nationwide, or focused in the Quebec area?

I think it's nationwide. I got one at downtown Vancouver (Burrard) on Tuesday. BTW, the price I paid was less than $5 + taxes. Just realized that the OP was $15 and so is everywhere else. This is in-store only.

Thanks. I called one of them, and I think he only checked the website and not the in store computer. It might be YMMV.

I haven't bought a single Forza game since Forza 2 so I can't really comment about how it compared to the rest of the Forza series. However you'll read on the Internet that it's very similar to the first NFS:Most Wanted(The good one not the new one) and that would be correct. The entire career progression is very similar to NFS except that this has the physics model and engine that we know Forza games to deliver. I personally love this game, the customization is dumbed down and simplified but there's ALOT of races with varied routes and scenery that you get. Also if you jump for the Horizon Rally DLC it opens up a few rally legend vehicles, rally upgrades and point to point rally tracks.

TL;DR : For ~$10 or less you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't get this game.

Mike74, please read Update #3, I did bring up the $5 price (originally mentioned by pongster). However it seems to be YMMV, as many stores are out of stock. And you're correct, it's in store only, on their website it's been at $40 for the past few days.

Man I was in there today and looked through the games too, didn't see this one, wasn't looking for it either though...

But noticed a lot of the clearance tags have gone up in price since I was there last (summer), talking $20+ difference on some.. either useless old tags on them or they jumped the prices up for holidays.
I'm not on the can right now, I swear
