Motorcycles For GT5 "If There's A Strong Demand"
Gran Turismo 5 has always been about four-wheel excellence. But two-wheel...?
Just to clarify, motorcycles won't be included when Gran Turismo 5 finally hits store shelves (we're still hoping for late November or early December), but that doesn't mean they won't be added at a later date. Polyphony Digital boss and GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi told PSM3 that if people really want bikes some time down the road, it could happen. In fact, it seems the environment already allows the crotch rockets to exist. Said Yamauchi:
"The environment we have right now allows us to drive motorcycles, but we need to get Gran Turismo 5 done first. Once that's out of the way, if there's a strong demand for bikes, that's something we'd consider."
There was a point when it was rumored that motorbikes would indeed be in the game when it first released, but that's over with now. Still, the very idea that they could show up remains, and it almost seems inevitable we'll see them in the form of future DLC. I mean, who's going to say they don't want to try motorcycles in GT5? That ought to be quite the insane thing but just remember, realism and authenticity on a motorcycle is a lot different. You really will have to start from scratch with the learning process.
