Loving the May DLC, but something funny happened when I tried to purcase this morning. I had 640 MS points and the car pack, that was supposed to cost 560, was listed as 497901730583544 points.
I was unable to purchase in game because the pack cost too much, and I'm sure I could have bought all the cars in real life for less than what that would have cost me. I had to leave the game and purchase from the Xbox360 store. That was wierd.
Didn't have much time to play, but got to take the Hennessey for a spin. It was every bit as insane as I imagined it would be.
They spoke of the Viper pack as a stand alone pack with about three or four cars. I imagine there'll be a GTS, a roadster, and a competition coupe. And probably an Autovista version of one of them.
As to the Top Gear pack and the purchase issues. There was a MAJOR brew-ha-ha about that for about twelve hours the day of the release. Has everyone heard the whole story? Cause I was right in the middle of it that morning at the forzamotorsport site.
It started at about 2am, and went on all morning till about 2pm that afternoon when Turn 10 finally had the glitch sorted out.
I went to DL my pack at about O'dark thirty! Nothing I'm not used too, NO!
Every morning 0 dark 30 A.O.C. for 8 weeks straight. Than every 4th day for years after that. I'd had more midrats than I can puke for the rest of my life. I've had more than your share and his share, and their share. But now I'm getting away from the point.
So there I am trying to DL my Top Gear pack for 3am Cortina love! 4 billion credits???????/
I don't smoke crack! I don't have meth-mouth. And I sure as heck aint pumpin Tiger Blood! Too soon?
So what kind of whipits are Turn 10 on this morning I can't DL my Top Gear pack. I go to forzamotorsports home page. Oh my! EVERYONE is about the 4billion cred glitch!
Worse yet! Some Fool posts this......
"Hey guys go to the dash board and DL the Chrysler, it's the free car. When you do go to Forza and grab the rest of the cars cause they unlocked!"
And then it's like a Black Friday Doorbuster free for all! Turn 10 must've lost millions in two hours. Out of morbid curiousity I DL'd the free car to see if the rumour was true. And voila! All DLC cars are available. I did not purchase any of the cars in game. I left the DLC as is, and awaited to see what Turn 10's response would be.
They were silent all morning till about 1pm or so. When one of the Turn 10 reps chimed in at one of the 40 plus threads posted all morning to say they'd fixed the glitch. But you had to delete the pack from your harddrive to DL it at the proper 560 point price. I DL'd mine by 2pm for 560 and all was well for me after that.
But the forums were ablaze for 8 hours all morning with crazy talk. It was the worst kinda political flame trolling you've ever seen anywhere, except perhaps GTPLanet!!!!
It's amazing how fast people turn on each other when the virtue of stealing become the hotbutton topic.
Was it Turn 10's fault? Or a bunch of thieves always trying to take advantage of any mistake? Well I'm not taking any kind of bite of that shitte sandwich. But holy cow was it all over the forza site that morning I can tell you.
The mods couldn't get a moments peace all morning for all the topics they had to delete. The forums were blowing up like you can't believe. Topics were reaching a HUNDRED freaking pages in less than 10 minutes. You couldn't hit refresh enough times a second to keep up with that traffic! It was Zuckerburg crazy traffic till about 8am. I thought for sure the network was gonna crash. To borrow a quote, "It's a lot of traffic for 4am? No, this would be a lot of traffic for Half Time of the Supperbowl!" You don't wanna know how many toiletbowls get flushed at halftime.
Crazy! That's what it was. I couldn't believe my eyes. I posted three times myself, in one of the topics that may not have been deleted at all. We learned quick not to talk about the free glitch, or you got deleted. We meaning people starting or talking in topics. Cause like I said, the moderators couldn't get two mintutes to take a breath. I sware I saw like 40 to 50 topics that were here one minute, gone the next.
I haven't checked back much since, cause I've been too busy with Cortina/Healy awesome sauce since! Check out my storefront! I've got three GTL liveries loaded up, and 5 total. There's a Vette, number 821, and a Cortina number 902(checkered tintop) that aren't up on my storefront yet. I will do them all if I can. But that will take time.
Crazy, crazy, crazy! I've never seen such a internet catfight in all my internet forum hopping, and I've been doing this from site to site since about 2001! Like I said, maybe GTPlanet has had a topic or two more crazy once or twice.
Anyone else there that morning and got more to add?
