One game series that has held a special place for me dating back to the Commodore 64 days was the Test Drive series. When the original Test Drive Unlimited came out back in 2006 for the Xbox 360, I can’t tell you how many hours I spent just tooling around O'ahu. With Test Drive Unlimited 2 on the horizon, we all have the opportunity to get a sneak peek at the action by signing up for the closed beta for the game. The folks at Atari announced that the closed beta registration that opens today, but it appears that the beta currently is for the PC and PS3, but when you register it does allow you to choose Xbox 360 as an option.
