Forza 3 takes 2 millionth sales lap

Turn 10's latest Xbox 360-exclusive racer goes double-platinum as Nurburgring downloadable track pack arrives on Live Marketplace.


Released last October, Forza Motorsport 3 has barely been out long enough to lose "that new car smell." Despite that, the Xbox 360-exclusive Turn 10-developed racing game has sold more than 2 million copies, Microsoft said today.

2 million copies later and still not out of gas.

When any ride gets that many miles on it, it's probably a good time for a tune-up. Microsoft is giving Forza 3 exactly that today, as the publisher has released the Nurburgring Grand Prix Circuit Track Pack for the game on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Available for 400 Microsoft points ($5), the track pack includes two new layouts of the famed German raceway: the full 3.22-mile track and a 2.24-mile sprint circuit.

Even before players start tacking on downloadable content packs, Forza Motorsport 3 features more than 400 different cars and 100 track variations. It also boasts a full-featured car customization tool that allows players to create and sell (for in-game currency) their own designs. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's video review below.
