MotoGP 07 makes debut with Xbox 360 release

Posted by Mark Raby

Agoura Hills (CA) - THQ announced this week that motorcycle racing game MotoGP 07 is now available for the Xbox 360, the first system to receive the new installment in the MotoGP series.

New in the 07 version of the game is an "extreme" mode that includes more global track destinations that any predeceasing title.  Expectedly, the new version also incorporates new vehicles and game play modes.

The MotoGP series has been around for seven years but has never been able to pull off a spot on the top 10 game sales list.  It dates back to 2000 with MotoGP on the Playstation 2.

The PS2 is the other console slated to receive MotoGP 07, but an official release date has yet to be announced.  It is planned to be available by the end of the year.
