This is absolutely gut-wrenching news. Please save these projects Sony! :(

I agree. I'd have thought Sony would have axed other studios before chopping their Liverpool team, but maybe sales of Wipeout HD weren't good enough to justify their continued existence?

doogiebear2785d ago

What other studios? I cant think of a single one worth chopping. I love liverppol because of their amazong games as psygnosis. But lately they just mostly made wipeout and that wasnt enough to pay the bills. However they are still with Sony, but perhaps they'll be integrated into other talented dev teams at Sony. There really isnt even one bad team. Sony always hores proven veteran game developement teams who have usually been around since the snes days till now.

it's kind of simple... they bring out good games. we really need to support.. tell your friends... their friends.. and their friends. damn i'm gonna miss wipeout.. was hoping to see a destruction derby this gen too. sad day.

The sad fact is that Sony probably saw other projects that needed those resources more. It sucks when anyone losses a job especially in the game industry where jobs seem to be few and far between. But Sony has to get their roster of games right when it comes to return on investment. They gotta make money. Sad day for WipEout fans though, I feel bad for you guys.

WipEout for PS4. Can't imagine how it will look o_O


Raf1k12786d ago

lol Probably the same but in 1080p and 60FPS.

It's the Splinter Cell style game for PS4 that gets me. Would love a game to play like the old Splinter Cell games.

jimbobwahey2786d ago

Wipeout HD on PS3 already ran at 1080p and 60fps. The team at Sony Liverpool could do wonderful things with the PS3 hardware.

Baka-akaB2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

It's not full hd . It uses dynamic frame buffer that allows the game to change resolutions on the fly when needed .

Right now there is nothing a constant 1080p @ 60 fps on consoles saves a few psn xbla and "easy" 2d stuff .

STONEY42786d ago

I always felt Wipeout HD was one of the best looking games on PS3. Mainly because of the (sort of) 1080p and 60fps. It's just so sharp and fluid compared to the majority of console games, and the art style is amazing.

I really hope that their PS4 work will see the light of day somehow.

abzdine2785d ago

now i'm boycotting future Sony machines if there is no WipEout.
