Forza 2 DLC price cut

Turn 10 lops off 200 points.

The Internet has finally discovered what Steven Gerrard has known all along: that complaining loudly as you walk past someone does change their mind and get you what you want.

What the hell are we talking about? Well, as the headline suggests, Forza Motorsport 2 developer Turn 10 has had a bit of a think and decided that the widespread anger at its price for downloadable race-track Twin Ring Motegi was a good enough reason to change it.

The result is that instead of paying 600 Microsoft points (GBP 5.10! EUR 6.98! Manners!), you will now be asked to fork over just 400 Microsoft points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.65 / good show) for the privilege of spinning around one of Japan's most popular circuits.

According to community manager Che Chou, the track should be buyable from Xbox Live Marketplace as of 9am GMT this morning (is it still BST? I don't know any more), with an associated website scoreboard going live today too and an auto-update for other Forza fans so they can see said 'board in-game.

For more on the thinking behind Twin Ring Motegi's selection, check in with what lead designer Dan Greenawalt had to say when it was announced.
