Forza Motorsport (Italian for "Force", commonly referred to as Forza) is a popular and critically acclaimed series of racing simulation video games for the Xbox and Xbox 360 developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Studios.
Forza seeks to emulate the performance and handling characteristics of a large number of real-life production, modified and racing cars. Unlike the similar PlayStation franchise Gran Turismo, much more emphasis is placed on the modification and customisation of vehicles. Despite these differences, Forza is often seen as Microsoft's answer to Gran Turismo for the Xbox systems.
As of February 2010, the Forza games have sold around 10 million copies since the release of Forza Motorsport in May 2005.
