The Forza Motorsport 6 Limited Edition Xbox One is Microsoft’s first racing-themed console

Titans of American business, Microsoft and the Ford Motor Company, have teamed up to develop a limited edition Xbox One console in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Forza Motorsport racing sim franchise and the upcoming release of Forza Motorsport 6.

The matte blue console features a racing-inspired design with a matching wireless controller and “custom automotive sound effects.” It comes equipped with the recently confirmed 1TB hard drive. Of course it is also bundled with Forza Motorsport 6, releasing alongside the game on September 15, 2015.

Ford’s collaboration with the famously realistic racing simulator runs more than skin-deep on a special console. The auto maker’s upcoming line of high performance cars will be included in the game before even hitting the street. The so-called “hero car” is Ford’s new GT supercar, which is featured on the game’s cover art. Popular vehicles like the GT350 Mustang and F-150 Raptor are also playable, being among the game’s range of over 450 immaculately simulated cars.

The Forza Motorsport 6 Limited Edition Xbox One Console is available now for pre-order at Microsoft stores and select retailers. It will be available on September 15 in the Americas and Asia, September 17 in Japan, and September 18 in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

Forza Motorsport 6, developed by Turn 10, will launch at the same time. Following up on the Xbox One launch title Forza Motorsport 5it will continue to leverage the console’s powerful hardware to provide one of the most detailed and immersive driving simulations ever to grace your television. Now that the developers have a better handle on the hardware’s capabilities, they will be able to integrate physics-based features like dynamic weather, a day/night cycle, and g-force, making factors like puddles and hydroplaning a real concern, depending on road conditions.

Bethesda is responding to negative Starfield reviews. And that’s a good thing
An astronaut explores a planet's surface in Starfield.

Imagine leaving a bad review on Steam only to log on one day and find that the creators of that game had responded. That’s exactly what’s been happening to Starfield players as of late. Currently saddled with a Mixed status derived from over 80,000 user reviews, Bethesda has gone into damage control mode to respond to its harshest critics. Reviews that call the game boring have been met with direct responses as the publisher explains that perhaps that’s the point.

“Some of Starfield’s planets are meant to be empty by design -- but that’s not boring,” one especially bold reply from Bethesda reads.
