UPDATE 3 (16:00): Now the Forza 5 Xbox One bundle is available to pre-order at Amazon.

VideoGamer.com is still awaiting further response from Microsoft.

UPDATE 2 (15:55): GAME has relisted the Forza Motorsport 5 bundle for £429.99.

UPDATE (15:53): ShopTo has also listed the same bundle on its website, offering Day One Edition customers the option to choose between FIFA 14 or Forza Motorsport 5 as the free download.

ORIGINAL STORY: FIFA 14 may not be the only free game offered to Xbox One Day One Edition consoles. A copy of Forza Motorsport 5 may also come bundled in with the console, judging by a pulled listing at GAME.

GAME posted an image showing the Xbox One Day One Edition appearing to be bundled "with Forza Motorsport 5" on its website soon after Xbox One's release date announcement earlier this afternoon.

But the image was quickly removed, only to be replaced by a standard Xbox One 'Get In The Queue' graphic.

Microsoft has yet to announce an official Xbox One: Day One Edition Forza MotorSport 5 bundle, but has previously confirmed that all European Day One customers will receive a free digital copy of FIFA 14.

At the time of the announcement, however, Microsoft also added that FIFA 14 would be "the first game included", hinting at the possibility of additional freebies.

Microsoft has yet to announce an equivalent pack-in for North American customers. But could it be Forza Motorsport 5?

When contacted by VideoGamer.com this afternoon, a Microsoft representative said that it had "nothing to share" on GAME's listing.

VideoGamer.com is still waiting to hear from GAME as to whether the listing was related to an official Microsoft bundle and why it was pulled.

I asked Shopto if they are doing the same thing, and they confirmed that they are doing the same thing, but you need to wait a while for the swap function to be updated for said game.

I contacted GAME and asked.

If you pre-order now, you will get a Forza 5 bundle as the Fifa one was only available "while stocks last". The copy of Forza that is included in the bundle is the day one edition.

Now that's much more appealing than FIFA.

Could just be GAME's own bundle.

Also, I swear before every announcement a retailer somewhere puts up the wrong graphic, they MUST be starting to do this on purpose?!

Surely they would be looking at that as one of their first party games to make them some money back on day one sales? It wouldn't make sense to include it free in that case and as pre-orders are doing really well they don't need to push the console any more.

If it is free, though, I'll be very happy as it's the launch game I was going to get (most likely digitally).
