Superbikes hit 360 in October

Demo expected this summer.

Black Bean has said that PC and Xbox 360 versions of SBK: Superbike World Championship will be available in October, and also filled us in on the demo plans.

"I think [the demo will be ready] near the end of the summer, considering the fact we're going to release at the end of October," spokesperson Livio Cantagallo told Eurogamer.

"We are going to think about a PS3 version, because we are just moving onto the next-generation consoles, starting with the Xbox 360 as it's similar to the PC."

If you can't wait until October then you'll have to gobble up either the PS2 or PSP copies, which will be available from the end of April.

The game, created by Italian developer Milestone, will feature TV-like authenticity when replicating racers, tracks, bikes, and, er, Superbike Umbrella girls - presumably sporting weird shaped heads that keep the rain and sun off of their alien-like bodies.

Multiplayer support is expected in the PC and 360 versions, and will join Quick Race, Race Weekend, Championship and Challenge modes to keep you entertained.
