A letter from Turn 10 creative director Dan Greenwalt explains that with today's update, DLC cars will be added to your garage immediately, without the need to purchase them separately. This update is both retroactive and will apply going forward, so any future purchases of season passes, car packs, or single-serving DLC cars will be added to your garage as well. The update also makes all of the initial cars included in the game available as rentals.

Previously, cars would be purchased with real money, which would then make them available to unlock with in-game currency. Sets like the recent Alpinestars Pack would usually include one car unlocked from the start, with the other nine available to unlock using the currency. Some fans initially expressed dissatisfaction with purchasing the car twice. Turn 10 subsequently softened the blow with an update in December that increased in-game funds and dropped prices in general, but kept the two-tiered DLC system intact. Today's update finally changes it to a more traditional a la carte model.

Well anyways I'll post here since GameSpot's new posting format is shit, I think it's pretty damn good that Turn 10 out of all developers found a way to convince Microsoft or even themselves the way content was restrained from customers who weren't willing to spend past the initial $60 wasn't cool.

Good shit guys. How is Forza 5? The last game I played in the series (and only one) was Forza Horizon and while it was fun and pretty, it got boring really fast.

That's good news. At least I'll have all those cars from the first 2 car packs in my garage now. I don't have to earn money and buy them in the game. I haven't played Forza 5 for awhile. Been too busy playing South Park & Titanfall. I just started Infamous SS. I think I'll be playing all 4 of these games over the weekend.
