Interesting reading all of this, if GPB ( or any motorbike game for that matter ) were to be an eSport, wouldn't the people competing need to be using something other than a gamepad as well for it to stand out as an actual simulator instead of a game like MotoGP?

( this might not be relevant right now in the discussion but it is something that would have to be a factor )

This is why Dorna has asked me for the demo. My systems are not designed to be a REAL motion simulation system but a system anyone can have at home, thats the big difference and what Dorna wants.

Give me the money and I will build a real rig but for now its bare bones build it in my bedroom stuff lol.

The bike "dynamics" is painful to watch  :(
If the bike wasn't leaning I'd say their goal was to simulate scalextric bikes dynamics :)

There is a scalextric leaning bike, so the simulation is spot on!

Well there you go Pib...... Don't miss opportunities by disregarding what is to become a massive part of the video gaming world in the near future! Take esport seriously by developing and  preparing for it to happen! Make sure you get in there at the ground level while it's still in it's infancy! ;D ;D

I know this sort of thing tends to come across as all a bit of a joke right now. Lol. But that will all change when serious backing and money become involved, and we see that starting to happen now with big companies and sports teams starting to have a dabble to test the waters, so to speak. Let's just hope they do it the right way to attract mass audiences.  :)

Baron de Coubertin would probably be quite disappointed.

They will use the officially licensed game, like Dorna is doing.
Makes sense... It would be extremely difficult to find new sponsors to fund development of a dedicated software in addition to covering the event costs.
Also, having a different simulation for eSport would negatively impact the public image of the officially licensed game, that would be immediately demoted to kids' toy, in turn devaluing the ( very expensive ) license.

We'll see if that one will stick. FIFA and DotA 2 hand out plenty of money but they make plenty of additional money as people buy ingame items to be more competitive in both.

I think the word is politics Pib and, as always, politics and sport don't mix well..... Shame there isn't someone in there who's got the authority, and more important, the balls to do the right thing for esport.
