There's a list of reasons that the very idea of paying more than $10 for an iPhone OS game strikes me as… well, not unfathomable, but just a real big stretch. Number one on that list? Sony's $20 game Wipeout HD for the PlayStation 3.
is there a demo? I know, i am cheap bastard.
I just checked the PSN store in the demo section and I didn't see it. But, based on the reviews that I've read, I think this is one game that I'll take the chance on and buy it without trying a demo. It just looks so good!
There was 2 downloads for the game, one was the main file, and then there was a real small "unlock" file to download. So I'm guessing there will be a demo someday because of the 2nd "unlock" file. But even without a demo Wipeout HD will melt your face off...if you have one of those TVs.
so...you guys complained when it was first known that Braid on XBLA was $15 (compared to the standard $10) but now $20 is okay for a PSN download? sure, i can see that the price did scale with the game (it's bigger than a standard arcade type game) but then again, Braid presented a more complex gameplay mechanic than other XBLA titles that might fit into standard puzzle/strategy type games. not starting an argument, just wondering why there was such a flip-out over price back then at Braid's release. BTW, BIG wipeout fan. since ps.
dont compare braid (a new title that no1 previously knew) to wipeout (a cult hit that almost every1 loves) bsides does braid run in full 1080p @ 60fps -.- =D
"it's bigger than a standard arcade type game" WipEout HD is actually worth $20 because of this. There is much more content compared to Braid. "but then again, Braid presented a more complex gameplay mechanic" So should I go and pay extra for Fracture and Dark Void? They're technically using "more complex gameplay mechanics" than some other games.
this game is unbelieveable... about 10 of us sat around and played this game for about 6 hours last night... and most of those were people that don't usually even get into video games. get it, trust me.
i think that is the best downloadable game in existance! i even believe it makes so much fun, like no other game for years. its really is amazing, especially with the game3.0 custom music!
I think this article has made me went from "Interested" to "must buy." I want the mind melting 1080p!!! Now all we need, is for them to teach other developers a thing or two about making games in 1080p. Hopefully, this is the start of future PS3 games being in 1080p.
Maybe I will get this game.I have not played since Wipeout XL 64
Looks very dull, boring, and overpriced. In other words its another typical PS3 game.
Power to you then.I gotta pick up Fable 2 next month so I have something good to play in October
Fable 2, exclusively on the Xbox 360. PlayStation 3 just wasn't good enough to get this game.
"Fable 2, exclusively on the Xbox 360" I could buy that on PC if i wanted. 360 has no REAL exclusives.
@Lobster Isn't that what Kojima says about MGS4 on the 360?
Wipeout HD has some of the best graphics I've seen this gen so far! They are incredible and they're seemless. No screen tearing, the screen moves at a constant 60fps and it's pretty impressive to see all these colors and all these images flying by at once. It's a great game, but one that will almost be sure to make even the most hardcore rollercoaster fan dizzy a time or two. It's that fast. I've gotten a tad light headed while playing it. Anyone in doubt, this is a full on game. It has awesome unlockables, trophy's and a grat online. Check it out, guys!
Not only is this the very best, the absolute nr1, in futuristic racing, but this title is also Triple A at a BARGAIN price. You will not want to miss this one out. Fear, xbots. WipeOut has arrived.
[email protected] This game is serious eye-candy and really fun. Trophies are damn hard to get though. I only have 7 or so right now.
two words GET IT!!!
there is a demo. I know cause I downloaded a long time ago. I think it was either european or hong kong only though.
@GiantEnemyLobster... ur avatar colour is red.. u mad coz got rrod??
Your avatar shows you angry at Xbox 360.. Mad that its owning the crap out of your CrapStation 3??
are retarded welfare leeches known as xbots. Rofl how many times did your machine RROD on ya, kid. Hahaaha OWNED. Suck it up and go buy another one, stupid kid.
I got it as soon as it came out, you will be addicted to the campighn as much as the online, its such an awesome game. Get it, well worth thr $20
Yet another great title on the PS Network, Wipeout HD is worth every penny! A must for any PS3 owner.
this game is worth more than 20 dollars IMO, 4realzies
this is probably the most fun ive had playing a psn game, and i have 9 of them. its a great game with slick graphics. must buy.
This $20 title trumps 80% of the Wii's catalog IMO.
I actually did buy a PS3 for this game,so really you could say wipeoutHD cost me £320 -WOW!:) Still, worth every penny in my book.Since i didn't play the handheld versions -handhelds just don't do it for me - i'm not so familiar with the tracks like many of you guys,but i'll get there, then you better watch out for Many-hats! :) Totally addictive game. Just a point on this whole true HD thing. Yes the graphics are awesome, but with my very clinical -and some may say cynical hat - the backgrounds are rather flat and lifeless, with almost no textures to speak of,but realistically, with 1080p and 60fps there has to be some trade off, and there is.However, best game of it's type i've played so far this century !
