We've been sent the Forza Day One pack, which includes a digital copy of the game, including a special Day One track pack - we are still downloading to find out what that includes.

The real bragging rights here though go to the Day One controller. It is the same as the standard controller except for the words Day One 2013 in between the d-pad and the control stick showing you just how cool you are. 

It looks good.
