Xbox Announces Forza Motorsport 6 Limited Edition Xbox One Console
Start your engines.
At the June 23rd “Further with Ford” media event in San Francisco, Xbox announced that as a part of their ongoing collaboration with the motor company, they will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Forza Motorsport series with the release of a limited edition version of their Xbox One console.
Touted as the first custom Xbox console with a racing theme, the Forza Motorsport 6 Xbox One console features a racing-inspired design which “combines iconic sports car styling with custom automotive sound effects.” Furthermore, it comes with a 1TB hard drive, a wireless controller with rubberized diamond grips and a deco matching the design of the console, and a “digital copy of the most beautiful and comprehensive racing game this generation.”
Their words — I haven’t shopped around to compare. I have found a pretty good deal on a go-kart, but this is what they’re bringing to the racetrack:
Combined with more than 450 cars, tracks from 26 world-famous locales, racing in the rain and at night, and epic 24-car multiplayer races in Forza Motorsport 6 this fall, the console rounds out the realistic experience of driving ultra-high-performance cars in the thrilling world of motorsport.
Forza Motorsport 6 will be available September 15th, 2015 for $74.99 CAD. Meanwhile, the Forza Motorsport 6 Xbox One console will be available the same day for $449 CAD, and is available to pre-order now at the Microsoft Store and select (albeit unnamed) retailers.
