FORZA MOTORSPORT 3 TO BENEFIT HAITI RELIEF EFFORTS
Microsoft and Turn 10 announced the widespread availability of four "Forza Motorsport 3" Game Add-ons, previously only available to those who purchased standard and Limited Collector's Edition copies of the game.
Mobilizing millions of Forza Motorsport 3 fans, Turn 10 is calling on all racers, tuners and artists to assist in the global relief effort for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. For every purchase of the VIP Membership Car Pack during March, Turn 10 pledges to donate $10 to Save the Children (up to $100,000). So now you can enjoy more of the Forza Motorsport 3 content you've been asking for, while also donating to an important cause.
Now available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 Microsoft points, the VIP Membership Car Pack gives you exclusive access and visibility in the Forza Motorsport community. You'll receive special recognition on scoreboards, in multiplayer lobbies, on ForzaMotorsport.net, in the Forza Motorsport 3 Storefront, and it places your VIP auctions at the top of the Forza Motorsport 3 Auction House. VIP membership also includes VIP Cars: 2008 Aston Martin DBS, 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, 2007 Ferrari F430 Scuderia, 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, and 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997).
(NOTE: VIP Membership is also available for FREE with an Xbox LIVE token included in new Limited Collector's Edition copies of "Forza Motorsport 3."
Additional, "Forza Motorsport 3" track and car packs are also available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, previously only available free to those who purchased a new copy of the standard or Limited Collector's Edition of the game.
While we applaud these efforts to support the Haiti Relief Effort through the Save the Children Fund, we're unsure why Microsoft and Turn 10 are stopping at $100,000. Surely they should donate $10 for every pack sold, regardless of the numbers? If you are the 10,001 person to purchase this extension pack, none of your money will go to the charity...
And remember, you may already have these packs with the purchase of the game, so check the details carefully.
