MotoGP ’08 is a motorcycle racing video game. It is available for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and Wii (simply called MotoGP in the U.S. version). For 2008, the rights to develop video games representing the MotoGP brand have been granted to a single publisher: Capcom. For the first time in recent years, the game includes the addition of playable 125cc and 250cc support classes. The Wii version of the game gives the player the option of using the Wii Remote as a handlebar, adding some lifelike control realism to the title. MotoGP ’07 for the PlayStation 2 has a reputation for emphasis on simulation in contrast to the MotoGP titles published by THQ (for Xbox, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows), which have a reputation for arcade gameplay. MotoGP ’08 is reported to balance these different styles and allow the player to configure an emphasis towards their desired gameplay.
