Microsoft has announced that three of its platform exclusives coming alongside the Xbox One launch will be getting extra content in the first wave. If you're considering Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, or Forza 5, this information is for you.

Forza Motorsport 5 is getting a "Day One Car Pack." It includes the 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe, the 2013 Ford Focus ST, and the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. Each comes with a Xbox One Day One themed livery, which you can see in the gallery below.

Dead Rising 3 comes with a couple of throwback costumes. The Frank West outfit comes with his zombie slugger and custom skills. It also boosts melee damage and survivor health. The Chuck Greene outfit comes with the paddle saw and perk boosts for vehicle and weapon durability.

Finally, Ryse: Son of Rome gets the Legionnaire's Trust sword and the Ruins co-op map. The Ruins map can be played by those that don't have it if invited by a Day One user.

These benefits also translate to digital purchases made during the first two week's of the Xbox One life cycle.

DR3 should of came with bonus pp or something, the costumes are cool and all, but even x1.25 pp would of made me happy. That is if the keep the PP system which they probably are.

Why? PP is pretty easy to get and the game has that in it. Unique outfits are better.

Originally it was, but it was cut out since they needed that extra incentive to buy all of them.

I know right that's why Killzone:SA will have free DLC for it because it was suppose to be on the disc but they had to portray it as free DLC as a major incentive for people to buy it since BF4 COD: Ghost will be selling like hot cakes. I totally get what you guys are saying man.

Not something you see very often with a bonus. Kind of neat.
