EA has just trumpeted that a Need for Speed: Shift demo will be offered this Thursday on PS3 and Xbox 360.
The sampler opens the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and London River for testing, and puts four cars at your disposal: BMW M3 (E46), 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10, 2006 Lotus Elise 111R and 2008 Nissan GT-R. If you can unlock it, the 2006 Pagani Zonda F is also up for grabs.
The PC demo is already available from the Need for Speed: Shift website.
Need for Speed: Shift has already been released, and its core-racing makeover debut was solid and commendable. Whether that's enough to stand up to Forza Motorsport 3 in late October, we'll have to wait and see.
