Need for Speed: Shift demo available Thursday

Electronic Arts has announced that a demo for Need for Speed: Shift will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network this Thursday, October 1. 

The demo will let you go all fast around two tracks — the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamp and a race around the London River. Immediately available to race in will be four cars — the BMW MS (E46); the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10; the 2006 Lotus Elise 111R; and the 2008 Nissan GT-R. Do well enough on the two available tracks and collect enough stars and you’ll unlock a fifth car, the 2006 Pagani Zonda F.
Shift has been on shelves for awhile, and we hear pretty decent things about it. We didn’t get a review copy from EA (and we cried), but those who did say it’s not bad. Check out the demo and see for yourself.
