According to the announcement, more than 75 official Microsoft outlets will be participating in the program across United States and Canada. This will lead up to until the launch of the Xbox One on November 22, 2013. So shoppers have two weeks to take the opportunity and try out the console for themselves.

Forza Motorsport 5 will be the only titled to be featured for the demonstrations. As an incentive, those who do try out the Xbox One at any of Microsoft’s stores will be entered into a Forza 5 living room sweepstakes. The winner will receive a copy of the game, a Forza-branded playseat, Polk Audio N1 Gaming SurroundBar, Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel, and a $2,000 gift card.
