Sony has just released some new screenshots of the Wipeout HD screens. The game is due out later on this year exclusively on the PS3.
So here is what Sony is trying to do: When it comes to racing games, their GT series is possibly the best out of the bunch. When it comes off-road racing, Motorstorm is highly regarded and offers a lot of replayability and awesomeness. Dirt is great as well. On the issue of futuristic racing , Sony aims to reclaim their title as the best in that field whiles Koei Fatal Inertia failed horribly.
the only game that can give Wipeout a run for it money is F-Zero. But there hasn't been an F-Zero game for 7 years now.
"Sony aims to reclaim their title as the best in that field whiles Koei Fatal Inertia failed horribly. " no need to reclaim a title you never lost
Technically speaking you are right Ghoul but you gotta admit that some of the F-zero games were better than some of the past Wipeout games. But with this title, it seems it all falls back to Sony's court once again.
I've actually been playing a lot of F-Zero at my friends lately and I'll admit for sure that they are great games. The problem is, whenever I play them, I always want to be able to pick up a weapon which unfortunately is quite lacking is the F-Zero franchise. That's why I'm a bigger fan of the Wipeouts, more intense in my opinion.
this game is gonna be awesome. ill be hoenst ive only played wipeout pure, but i absolutely loved it.
ive been led to belive that this is a remake of the first wipeout. if true i hope it uses the physics of 2097 or pure. i bought the original on psn and realised how crap it was compared to the later ones to come out. plus wipeout wasnt only on playstation there was a 64 version, although it sucked compared to the PS one.
but it seems to me like people have to keep on saying it's the best future racer almost as if they're trying to convince themselves. Pure was easily one of the best PSP games hands down, but I really don't think WipEout holds a candle to F-Zero. Doesn't mean WipEout is bad(that's for you venomous fanboys), just not as good. I've got no qualms playing both, mind you.
i remember when i first saw Wipeout many years ago,
it hasn't changed that very much, gameplay wise...
like Homer once said: OMG OMG OMG ! (in a girly voice)
I bet the 360 fanboys are drowning in their own drool right now.
But that doesnt say much because i buy alot of garbage, but i think this will be one of the better =)
Wipeout. Perfect name for this title. CAUSE THIS GAME WILL WIPEOUT ANY GARBAGEBOX 360 GAME THEY HAVE ON XBLA!!!!! LOLOLOL
GO BACK TO PLAYING YOUR FATAL INERTIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOLOLOLLO LOLOLOL
MICROTARDS GET PWNED ON A DAILY BY ME I SWEAR TO F*CKING....
... but I doubt I'll pick it up, cause it's just yet another DLC scam waiting to happen.
Within months you will have to dish out more money on tracks and vehicles that should have been included in the original release. :(
I've been a Wipeout fan since the PS1 days, so I might as well. Hopefully it uses Pulse's user interface. =]
At 1080p and 60fps, Lightning fast gameplay, online, Custom Soundtracks, amazing visuals, cheaper than a regular game...God i love Wipeout.
How can you compare it to F-zero since that franchise is dead years ago? It might have been the only Wipeout rival back at the time, but now there isnt one.
Big Fzero fan but have never played Wipeout. Think I'll be checking this one out.
