Owning a PlayStation 3 just got more attractive, thanks to the release of wipEout HD. Sony's fast-paced and futuristic racer has everything you'd want after dropping $400 on that shiny new console: speed, gorgeous visuals and online play, all for a wallet friendly $20 price.
WipEout HD's graphics are its biggest selling feature. Sony took eight tracks from its PSP WipEout games, Pulse and Pure, and gave them a marvelous facelift using the PS3's advanced technology, bathing each track in 1080p high definition goodness. Environments that look impressive on the handheld are three times as beautiful stretched across an HDTV, with underground pathways bursting with fluorescent light, sweet-looking explosions, realistic sun glare and plenty of twists and turns. Eventually, you'll want to progress through the story mode and rack up gold medals, but sometimes, you'll find yourself soaking in this game's magnificence, unaware that you just slipped to last place. It's that amazing.
