That's my question as well, if you purchase the digital download on day one will it have the same extra content as purchasing the boxed version of the day one edition, if so then I'm gonna purchase the digital download just because I love the idea of never having to get a disc out or have to have shelf space for all my games? I'm gonna support Microsoft's vision they originally had before they buckled under the pressure. I personally wish they would have stuck to their guns. I can't stand trading my games in and getting $8 worth of credit and having Gamestop turnaround and sell it used for 54.99 when the new one is 59.99.
Definitely getting the limited edition for this release. Never thought a racing game would be my main reason for buying launch hardware but this looks like the racing game I have been waiting my entire life for. The video's look simply amazing and I am very curious to see this AI cloud technology. Just spent over 1200 on a frame and racing wheel so I hope it lives up to the hype.
A Limited Edition has been announced, containing the highly anticipated VIP-Membership, a LE-Car pack, as well as the DAy One car pack (containing 3 cars: 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe, 2013 Ford Focus ST, 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera). I think these 3 cars are the ones which you will get buying this DAy One Edition. However, I'm gonna wait for the LE, as always when buying a game of the Forza series :)

I pre-ordered Forza 5. Does the Amazon day one edition of Xbox One (which I also pre-ordered) include Forza 5? I can't see anything on Amazon saying that it does, but I know some UK outlets include Forza 5 with day one Xbox One
Then why not use Ebay, or even Amazon to sell your used games where you'll get much more $$ then Gamestop? While I do indeed like "digital downloads" for the convenience why is it the same cost of a boxed version of a game? Purchased a game for $60 before reading reviews and then you realize it completely is garbage you're out $60. At least with a "disc" you can sell it for $45 or so and use that towards another game. I don't see why any consumer would not at least see the potential damage digital only could have done. Also, if you don't want to get the disc out every time just install it to the HD, problem solved. Your shelf space, well that's a different issue.
So Major Nelson confirmed on his blog that any digital downloads of a game get the "day one" bonus if purchased within the first two weeks. When I look on my Xbox I can see the Day One downloads for games like COD: Ghosts, but Forza shows nothing and makes no mentions of the Day One cars. Anyone heard anything about when we'll get those?
