Microsoft announced that all Xbox One pre-orders in Europe will come bundled with FIFA 14 as a free game. This was a great news to target general consumers in Europe. It seems, only the day one edition of Xbox which got sold out in almost all the retailers in Europe will offer FIFA 14 for free. Since Microsoft has made a promise that “all pre-orders of Xbox One will ship with FIFA 14 in Europe.”, even though the FIFA 14 bundle got sold out, Microsoft is planning to offer Forza 5 as a free game.
According to the statement offered by Microsoft to The Verge,
“Due to unprecedented demand, the Xbox One Day One Edition with FIFA 14 is nearly sold out, but is still available at certain retailers,” says a Microsoft spokesperson. The company is making another pre-order bundle available in the UK, with Forza Motorsport 5 replacing FIFA 14 for new pre-orders. “These are only on pre-orders for the Day One Edition bundle which are in limited supply at selected retailers in the UK,”
If I were given a choice, I would have selected Forza 5 bundle over FIFA 14!
