Nice website.

Superbike World Championship 2008 intrigues me. I like seeing the news of an accurate physics model, 5 pre-configured realism settings and 4 variable weather conditions being implemented in this game. Look forward to playing it.

Will this actually be released in North America? The website says it releases in May 08 but I can't find it listed anywhere.

I still fire up SBK 2001 and play it from time to time. I can't wait for this one, if it's anything like the oldies...which were stunners in the graphics department, and awesome in the gameplay department with all the aids off.

I'm very intrigued with this game, hopefully it better represents motorcycle racing than that MotoGP abomination.
I agree TCrouch, the old SBK game was incredible, I remember when it first came out and it and GP500 from Microprose were competing for us sim enthusiasts' love. I'll always love GP500 more, but SBK was awesome too.
