SBK 09 trailer

SBK 09 trailer

We just got this first trailer of SBK 09, and as usual only the fans of the genre will care enough to even watch it. Not bad looking at all!

Although I dont know much about bike racing, the last time I wanted to buy one of these just for the challenge I rented it first and the frame rate got choppy on most corners making it unplayable. If this one can keep it together I'll but it.

I would really love to see a new Tourist Trophy as that was the best bike related game I have played thus far...this might be good too as long as it is accessible enough...

Doesn't look bad, but why can't they blend flat ground with hilly bits? (looks at pic 6 and weeps...)

It just looks like it's been plonked there.

And when are they going to start accurately modelling road surfaces? I think that's the next thing for driving games. At the moment, everything is nice and flat (unless you are playing a rally game). We're still a long, long way from a really good simulation of anything...

None of these motorcycling games are a patch on TT Superbikes, even tho that is for the PS2. The graphics might be dated but the feel of the bikes is second to none and it really is a really underated game and missed gem by most people.

Each year SBK and Moto GP churn out the same game with slightly better graphics etc but they bore me.

I'm really excited about the PS3 version of TT Superbikes that is coming sometime in the future.

Yeah that looks retarded.

About the road surfaces, I agree too.

What is up with horrible music in racing game trailers lately, urgh.

Still, the previous SBK 08 wasn't that bad. Imho it was underrated by many people. Bike handling in corners was more realistic than for instance MotoGP's. More inertia/momentum that is. Haven't played TT Superbikes though, so I cannot compare.

SBK 08 wasn't so bad. Good bike handling in corners due to attention to inertia/momentum.

played the demo yesterday and was pleasantly surpised about the handling even on arcade mode. there's quite some weight to the bikes.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah agreed. Nothing like getting that Soldier stunt driver skin instead of an event specific one D: (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And a bunch of dances and voice lines. (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I got one drop in the last event, one non-event legendary, and I unlocked another two with credits. (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The last event had a ton of skins but it seemed extra bad because they were all legendary. That didn't help. (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Another annoyance is getting that rare legendary during an event and having it not be an event skin. (48 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it was really at it's worse during the last event too. They released more random collectibles so the drop rate was even more obscure. The dupe money has always been really shit though (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. and I think dupes made it a lot more annoying too. (49 minutes ago)
