    I have brand new xbox and brand new Forza 5 for Christmas. Game installed correctly and plays intro correctly. Orange car appears for two seconds after intro then screen goes back to Xbox home page. i returned the game to shop and recieved a second brand new Forza disk. IT DOES THE SAME THING. COD Ghosts installs and plays normally. Blue Ray movies play perfectly. EVERYTHING SEEMS NORMAL except two brand new Forza 5 games DO NOT PLAY. I've contacted store, xbox support and even community ambassador and no-one knows s#*t. Any tips or tricks before I blow up Microsoft!!!:biggrin-new: Please, ANYONE allow my sons to race their cars??!!:mad-new::mad-new::mad::mad::mad:

    Try rebooting the Xbox.
    1. Turn controller off
    2. Push and hold the xbox button and watch the power brick light.
    3. Power brick light will go white, orange, white, then orange.
    4. Second orange release button.
    5. Wait roughly a minute and reboot system.

    If the above doesnt work, un-install and re-install game.
    Un-install
    1. Go to My Games & Apps
    2. Hover over Forza icon
    3. Push the select/3 line button for sub menu.
    4. Find and click un-install
    5. Put disk in to re-install

    Now I got it, your here just to cry about how bad the xbox is. Lets fix that issue then. If you truely have a Xbox one, unhook the entire console, put it back in the box, return it to the store, by the next system (your choice), then see if the grss is greener.

    I'm having exactly the same problem with my Forza 5. The kids are really disappointed. Game is fully installed, took a full 24 hours to download the 6 gig update. Orange car, disclaimer ...... Then it kicks me back to the main screen.

    i have no idea what to do. Tried rebooting, cleaning the disk, etc.

    keen to know if anyone has solved this yet.

    My battlefield does the same thing. I had heard it was a ram issue. When I either unplug or complete restart the xbox, it always works. Not sure why it would do that.

    But that's quite alright with me as Battlefield may be going back. I just don't have fun playing that game. The frustration level is too high.

    I too had the same exact problem... only to find out that you need to be signed in to an Xbox live account with Internet connection for the first official use.
