Yes, news about the release date of a demo for a game. Really. Anyway, they’ve done some updates to the "rumors" to keep you lot excited.

Microsoft® Game Studios has spent the last several months telling you all about the incredibly deep and realistic features included in the game and soon you’ll be able to take the game for a test drive on Xbox LIVE Marketplace – the rumors this week of a downloadable demo are true and the details on timing will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

From true Force Feedback to online tournaments, from Xbox LIVE Auction House to our unmatched Livery editor, “Forza Motorsport 2” will truly set a new standard for the racing genre. According to Game Director Dan Greenawalt, “Soon, gamers will get a taste of the raw horsepower the Xbox 360 game engine has provided as we redefine what it means to be a racing simulator with Forza Motorsport 2. Whether it’s the hundreds of thousands of physics parameters captured from countless man hours taking track measurements and capturing car data to harnessing the power of the industry’s most advanced the neural-network search algorithms, non-linear and linear math models as well as AI simulation systems from our Microsoft Research Labs, we’ve turned mountains of real world raw data into a living, breathing racing simulator where the only difference between the game and reality is that you’re not risking life and limb when you hit a wall at 200 mph.”

As always, we have more to reveal from “Forza Motorsport 2’s” extensive car list as well. This week, we’re unveiling the aftermarket production cars in the game, with rare models including the Tommy Kaira Skyline from Nissan and the VeilSide Supra Fortune from Toyota. These suped up favourites are sure to bring some spice to the track as they round out the game’s list of production cars – the full list below. Be sure to check out for the latest screenshots as well as this week’s Pitpass report featuring as Dan and Che “geeking out” on car physics and realism
