There was a pretty cool Forza 2 demonstration at the 12 Hours of Sebring on 3/17. This team is sponsored by Forza 2 so they had this demo by the garages.
It is a 3 HD TV demo, and if you look closely it is powered by 3 Xboxs, with the center screen being the server and the 2 others being in some kind of client mode (look at the car selection pic, you can see "left" and "right" on other 2 screens). I asked the rep and they said that this would be a feature when it ships. I also snagged some pics of the "Xbox 360 Launcher" application that they were using to load it up (after it crashed a couple times), pretty interesting stuff.
Check out the pics:http://s119.photobucket.com/albums/o139/zach978/
I didn't get a chance to try it out, didn't want to stand in line for an hour, but the graphics look really good.
Also found this video on Mika Salo driving the sim:http://youtube.com/watch?v=MokznaYw0JQ&...ted&search=

I know it was demoed a few times but I heard it was not in the release version.
I could be wrong as I never owned it myself.
The launcher pic has been showen alot. Looks like the Xbox one only its blue.

It is in the release version for XBOX1, just hidden
Note: For this to work, you MUST have a seperate Xbox and copy of Forza for EVERY additional screen you wish to use, and all Xboxes must be on the same network together.
1. Start all your individual copies of Forza.
2. On each copy of the game, go to the Options menu, scroll to the very bottom ("Credits"), then press the left control stick in and down. This will cause another option, "Network Cockpit Settings" to appear. On your main screen, select host, on each other screen, select which view you would like the screen to show.
3. Now all the screens but the host screen should be waiting for you to start a race. Using the host screen, start a game, and the other boxes will automatically load the track and their individual views.
4. Enjoy Forza like never before.

I wish I had tons of money to spend on useless stuff. I would never leave the room if I had that setup though.
