Images of Wipeout HD

Anti-gravity racing in high definition (1080p) with 60-frames-per-second, interested? That is the premise of Wipeout HD, which will be a downloadable title from the Playstation Store directly to your Playstation 3 hard drive disc come the end of 2007. Seven racing modes, a photo mode, up to eight players at the same time, keep an eye for this game!

My guess would be $20 USD. That's how much I (initially) paid for Dark Ressurection...

@ knox, who cares. If you play it on a widescreen then it's 16:9.

Looks great but like knox said its odd they are ANAMORPHIC. HD is not anamorphic, it's 16:9 native.

One reason could be that they are video grabs from a video captured to be anamorphic, would explain some of the fuzziness.

I hope Cold Storage is doing some music for this or their music is being reused. Wipeout without top-notch trance tunes is not wipeout at all. I'm sure the marketing department is just itching to use some ass-rock and worthless bands in this one, the kinds they have every night on Conan O'Brien for the past 15 years (count the bands.. thats UMPTEENTHOUSAND useless ass-rock bands).

I think I'll pass if a real sequel is really in the works. Wipeout Pulse will be mine though.

I hope there's NEW Cold Storage music in the game. Still listening to nearly every one of his tracks to this day. Besides a few select songs, it's been the ONLY good music in WipEout games too...

You are joking?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wipeout_(game)

The only F-zero to precede Wipeout was on the SNES, and that was nothing like it. You could easily argue that subsequent releases of F-zero ripped off Wipeout.

if i had a PS3 i would get this as i always liked the wipeout games
Commented on 2007-09-19 00:19:26
So when's this supposedly released (other than "end of 2007")?

Why not Fatal Inertia ripoff? ⌐.⌐

Oh, and how come the resolution of screenshots are screwed up? Isn't it supposed to be 1080p? What I see aren't even widescreen.

well yeah, f-zero DID come first and it was a futuristic racer involving hovering jet racers.

speaking of, f-zero gx (graphically) still looks better than this, and its 4 years old.

I'll never understand how people can enjoy these games. I've always hated games like wipeout and F-zero. The controls just feel so wrong. It's like racing a futuristic shopping cart in low gravity.

Joking of course, but still the gameplay just feels so wrong to me. Guess i'm too wrapped up in sim racers...

I disagree with that, and these are some low quality screens too (taking a still from the high quality video on PSN looks better). But I agree this game isn't amazing looking either.

It IS just a downloadable title, after all.
Commented on 2007-09-19 09:02:29
why have a blu-ray when you then downlaod you most prescious IPs? Kind of shows that at the moment people are not needing the full capacity of it (blu-ray), if you can get decent games like this and warhawk.

Also Geometry on it looks low but it's pre-production. Will never beat the SNES f-zero though , that was pure class.

Lastly am i missing something? They look 16:9 ratio to me?

this does looks awesome. the shadowing on image 2 is great

Oh come on. The SNES F-Zero played entirely different to Wipeout and to the N64 / GC versions. And to be honest even those versions were so different to Wipeout that I fail to see how one could have ripped off the other.

As for the visuals, I'd agree the screen shots above look crap. But if you've got a PS3 then you can download the ingame trailer thats been on the PSN for ages, which looks jawdroppingly pretty.

yawn! this wipeout looks no different to wipeout 2097 (wipeout xl) apart from the hud.
Commented on 2007-09-20 01:04:45
hmm...too bad the images are all fuzzy and distorted so u cant really tell just how good the visuals are...

    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
