SCEA today issued a new fact sheet for WipeOut HD. The good news? The game is now listed as coming "soon". The bad? It looks like a few features have been dropped, in order to get it out quicker and probably cheaper.
wtf. i was REALLY looking forward to this, but if this is true... who wants a game with less features??? i think i'll have to wait for the REAL ps3-wipeout to come out, probably fall 08..
yeah man, that blows chunks of ass.
Who cares about quicker and cheaper...we've waited this long already for it, we might as well keep waiting instead of having a crippled basic version of it. Just keep working on it Sony...
These pictures. how the Real Wipeout 2 ps3 will look like... hahahhaha youst think about it :D WIPEOUT IN KZ2 GFX :D :D *DRRROOLLLL*
hmmm.. so no elmimnation or head to head mode... no photo mode, and no website.. interesting, still 8 player online, which i think is the biggest draw, so uh sure
Looks like the 3 of the 4 things that got axed, I wouldn't have taken advantage of anyway. You know the website is going to come anyway and I'll bet you that the other modes will come later via download.
Look before you comment people. The features that are 'not mentioned on the new press release', are all pretty rubish and not essential parts to the game at all! Who honestly wants to take a photo of the craft in their race and publish it on a dedicated website? Nobody at all of course, which is why they will have dropped it. Standard practice is to do some focus testing and only offer features that will actually be welcomed... The feature list has everything any real Wipeout fan would have wanted, and I'm really lookig forward to try it with six axis controls and playing 8 player online races... Bring it on!!!
That's next week. Because They seem to release at least ONE game per week. I buy PSN games and if DLC is worth it i'll pick it up. But as long as the main things are in it, then I'm not worried.
I'm thinking either next month or December. When they say "Soon" for a PSN game it's never more than a few weeks away so far.
When they said features dropped, I thought they were getting rid of IMPORTANT features. After reading that fact sheet, those were features I could care less about anyway. Besides, not only were they minor features, they'll probably end up putting those things in the download packs anyways. In other words, this game is STILL a must buy for me
they didnt take out the ships and tracks I'm fine. I dont need to take no pictures! I'd rather have images stored in memory banks of the dudes who ass I kicked online :P BRING IT!!!
you can make an american account to download it cant you dude? or do they not let you play online if you do that?
