The PBR video game is coming out the first week of the PBR World Finals (October 28th I believe). Is anyone going to get this?
As most know, I've been pretty excited about it for a couple years now, so it's nice to finally be getting a game. That being said, I haven't seen or heard much about it, and what I have seen hasn't been overly impressive. I'll definitely give it a rent, and then I'll probably make a decision on whether or not to buy it. Then again, I might end up buying it anyway to help promote the sales so we can maybe get another one in the next year or two.
It would be nice if I could get an early copy and do some previewing for other fans on the internet. Maybe I'll see if I can work that.
They actually previewed the game at Grand Rapids this last weekend. You can choose to be the bull or the rider and in a head to head competition one of you is the bull the other the rider. The graphics were not quite what I had expected but part of that might have just been the set-up. I am guessing that they will have more in Oakland in 2 weeks since the main sponsor is Crave and it is the Out of the Chute invatational. Hopefully they will have it someplace we can all get our hands on it and I will give you a full review.
"All I have to do is really learn how to dance with a bull. You just have to remember that he's definitely leading and you have to follow. You can't get behind at all. If you keep in time with him, you're all right. I just wish it wasn't such a hard dance to learn."- Fred Boettcher

Yeah, I broke down and pre-ordered it at the PBR Store. I originally thought it was going to be $49.99, and what's why I was going to rent it first. But after seeing it was only going to be $29.99, I decided to go ahead and give the Wii version a shot. I'm sure it will at least be worth $30.
After I get my copy, I'll definitely be here to post pics, videos, and all kinds of reactions.
The PBR Games page has a new video of the game, and they have added another 10 screenshots or so as well. The new screens are of Brian Canter and Reindeer Dippin I believe. The video is a minute or so long, and it just shows a couple different riders on different bulls. I could pick out Marchi, but I didn't really know who the guy in the white vest was. Either way, here is the link to the games page.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's him. I thought the same thing when I saw his name on the poll, but the picture in the screens and on the video look like him, and the shirt looks like the one he wears as well. Once the game is released, I'll be sure to post all the riders, bulls, etc. that are in though.
The release date is October 28th which is also the week of the World Finals. That's going to be a big PBR week for me, that's for sure!
Edit: I've seen a few more screens at other websites, and I've seen the following riders so far.
Justin McBride Guilherme Marchi Mike Lee Chris Shivers Wiley Petersen Ross Coleman Sean Willingham Brian Canter
Also, I'm sure Adriano Moraes is in, since he is on the cover. I'm not sure who the others are though, but that's a pretty good list so far. I'm excited to see the bulls included as well. With less than two weeks out, I'm starting to get excited about this one for sure.

On a side note, I got an email from the PBR stating my game wouldn't be shipping until October 31st at the earliest. I was expecting the game on the 28th, but now it will be a week later probably. Oh well, it's not too big a deal.
