Damn, I really want an Xbox One now

The folks at Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios are really putting in some effort to knock Gran Turismo off its pedestal.

Earlier today, the Xbox YouTube channel posted a launch trailer for their latest iteration of the Forza franchise, Forza Horizon 2, and it looks absolutely stunning.

All of the scenes are pulled from Xbox One gameplay footage (which is properly impressive, even with all the restrictions Microsoft puts on console owners) and it seriously makes me want to go out and buy one in anticipation of the game’s release.

The open-world racer, straddling the line between arcade fun and simulation, will feature over 200 different cars at launch.
