After selling a $200 game bundle for cents, Microsoft realises it made a mistake

After accidentally selling people a Forza Horizon bundle (opens in new tab) worth £170/$200 for 61p (about 70 cents), Microsoft has begun to realise that it might have messed up. Players who picked up the games at their historically-low price last week are finding the games missing from their library, but at least they’re getting their precious pennies refunded too.

Last week, users on Resetera (opens in new tab) (via The Gamer (opens in new tab)) noticed that the Swedish Microsoft Store’s bundle of Forza Horizon 4 and 5 (and all their DLC) was selling for an absurdly low price in Swedish Krona. In the two-ish hours before it was fixed, a whole swarm of users from across Europe and the UK descended on Microsoft’s store to take advantage of the pricing error. US users were excluded from the feast, but it turns out that didn’t matter anyway, since Microsoft has decided it would like its expensive game bundles back, thank you very much.
