Forza Motorsport 7 becomes one year old in October, and developer Turn 10 is planning a major change in one of its more controversial systems. Price boxes, Forza version of bulk boxes, will be removed completely from the game in an upcoming update. Meanwhile, the impact of price cuts has been significantly reduced.
