New Wipeout Game in Development for PS3

Sony's UK studio is looking for a senior/lead designer to help bring Wipeout to the PS3 platform. This would all but confirm that the next game in the series appears to be in development.

FROM SCEE's RECRUITMENT PAGE:

Senior/Lead Designer - URGENT

Wipeout
Wipeout is the most revered, innovative and respected arcade/action racing franchise of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios.

The Task

Some of my fave games are sequels. Theres nothing wrong with taking something thats good and making it better. Just one example, GTA:San Andreas. I say roll on the sequels. I was hoping Wipeout would make it to next-gen.

"Theres nothing wrong with taking something thats good and making it better"

- Yeah kind of like everything Sony did with their console copied the competitors and made it better... "Roll on the sequals"-Man that is pathetic You are buying a next gen console called ps3 not the remade ps2!! Originality is what its all about. MGS is the only series I like that is sequal.. FF sucks its old time for something new... LOOK AT THE 360 GAME LINE UP IT MAKES THE PS3 LINE UP LOOK LIKE CRAP!!!!!!!

360:

Halo 3
Gears of War 2
Forza Motorsport 2
Project Gotham Racing 3

PS3:

Metal Gear Solid 4
Gran Turismo 5
Final Fantasy 13
Killzone 2

Both consoles have sequals and both have brand new titles. And besides, a sequal to a game means that it is very successful and popular. Anyone would rather have a sequal to a brilliant game then a whole field of crap ones. And besides, if a gmae has MORE sequals, such as Final Fantasy (1-13), then that means its INCREDIBLY successful. I mean 13 games in the series? That's phenomenal. It may not appeal to you, but who cares about you? Millions of other people love Final Fantasy (including me) so shut ur sasshole boy and cut the crap about ps3 being ALL about sequals

TheMART3742d ago

Killzone 2, does it still exist? Haven't heard or seen from it for 1,5 YEARS now

Gears of War is the Killzone 2 CGI you all saw @ E3 2005 in real time. Available this Christmas. Only on 360. Jump in

its rocked from ps1 to psp. i just hope that the ps3 games arent 99 dollars, i really dont fee llike paying 109 dollars for a game in canada. i have a 360, and the 69 dollars plus tax is outrageous. anyways, i love this series, and i hope its affordable.
