All Microsoft Stores to offer demos of 'Forza Motorsport 5'

A couple of months ago, Microsoft announced that people who visited one of its retail stores in the U.S. and Canada could check out a non-working Xbox One console under glass. Later, the company announced that a few stores would participate in an Xbox One tour where the public could get some hands-on time with some of the console's launch games.

Today, Microsoft has revealed that all of its retail stores will now give customers the opportunity to go hands-on with one of the big Xbox One launch titles, "Forza Motorsport 5". The company currently has close to 80 large retail stores and smaller, kiosk-like specialty stores, and more stores are opening before the Xbox One finally launches on November 22nd.

Additionally, Microsoft is holding a giveaway for those who visit one of their stores to demo Forza Motorsport 5. It states:

The winner will get a great “Forza Motorsport 5” Living Room package with a Forza Motorsport branded playseat, Polk Audio N1 Gaming SurroundBar, Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition, and a $2,000 gift card to use towards completing the living room with a big screen TV.

Microsoft's Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb will also make appearances at two stores that will open next week: Las Vegas, Nevada on November 14th and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on November 16th.

I just visited the Microsoft Store in Toronto here and they already have it!.... OMG it was so wicked! Huge crowds around watching/playing too.

Can't wait till I get my hands on this game. I can only squeeze in about an hour or two if I'm lucky for gaming these days. Young guys on the forum, enjoy your youth with no mortgage, car payments, kids, spouse, and endless hours of gaming. :-)

Hell yeah to this pal, free time is time that you either want to sleep or your other (some say better) half finds jobs for you to do! I think by the time the next gens come along i'll either be totally uninterested or I will finally have the time again to play games instead of changing nappies, feeding, tidying, cooking, working, sleeping and popping on neowin now and again.

We have this and Killer Instinct, as well as Lococycle, Crimson Dragon, and did I mention Killer Intinct. Because if you haven't played it, you need to asap. This is the Century City store in LA that I am talking about.
