Polyphony Digital has created Gran Turismo 5 with motorbikes in mind - and although they won't be playable in the final game, the studio is keen on the idea of introducing a two-wheeled element down the line.
The long-awaited racer, which has been delayed into later this year, contains over 800 cars - 200 of which respond to face-tracking using the PS Eye.
But the game doesn't contain any motorbikes - for now.
"The environment we have right now allows us to drive motorcycles, but we need to get Gran Turismo 5 done first," Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi told the latest issue of PSM3. "Once that's out of the way, if there's a strong demand for bikes, that's something we'd consider."
Late last year, it looked as though bikes could still make the main game - but it appears that dream is now over. Roll on the DLC, we say - we just dread to think how long it might take.
PSM3 issue 133 - which also features the definitive pre-launch verdict on Call of Duty: Black Ops - is with subscribers now, and will be in store later this week.
