I was just wondering does anybody the size of the Wipeout HD game off the PS Store?

Was wondering if it was between 5-10GB file?

Does anyone know?

Since it isn't out ( :'( ) I'd say around 956MB or over.

29th May 2008, 12:16 PM
Where'd you get that number from?
Only info we have from Studio Liverpool (afaik) is below 1 gig.

mdhay
29th May 2008, 12:17 PM
I estimated.

Around 1GB thats good. Means i dont have to delete any music off the HDD. I Guess its gonna be a small title. Something in the vicinity of the Gran Turismo Concept download.

Does anyone know an exact date of release of Wipeout HD?

Hehe, I love this thread. Talk about finding something to talk about whilst twiddling your thumbs :)

Now you know how Star Wars fans felt, between 1983 and 1999.

.. Well, maybe not.

Yeah we were already told that it sits at just under a gig after install were we not? I dunno how they got it so small. there isn't a lot to the HAZE demo in terms of play length and its a lot bigger than that.

Darkdrium777
29th May 2008, 06:45 PM
Well both PurE and PULSE for PSP are really small too. The UMD can carry about 1.8GB but both games are under the 300MB mark (I'm not sure but I even think PULSE is smaller than PurE) I guess Liverpool is good at making small but very fun games :)

Maybe the reason Haze is large and Wipeout is small is due to the optimised code SL produce compared to the Haze devs?

Quite refreshing if you ask me that SL are not following the MS rule of "have disk space, create bloatly code" I mean, how much disk space did Office used to take up? (I run an MS certified dev company btw so don't tell bill:))

Darkdrium777
30th May 2008, 05:26 PM
Colin I think that the fact that a lot of games require a very large hard disk install today on PS3 for very little performance increase has anyone worrying when one of the prettiest games on the PS3 is coming through download only. People don't like 5GBs install and they fear that this game, being such a beauty to look at, might cost them a large share of the HDD... I think why people say these things is not to be a rumor mill, but instead to seek an answer to silence their fear...
Maybe you should just say how much it is now (Even though it is not complete) so that people will know it's very small, right now, and they won't worry any more ;)

Lance
30th May 2008, 07:05 PM
Colin already diD say that. Twice. Right here in this thread. Where we could all see it. And yet people are still not believing it even though it comes right from the real source, the guy who designed it, the guy who knows. WTF?

Lance-> I think you'll notice that each time it is a new user that asks this. So how bout Colin makes a post about everything WipEout HD he said already (No need to say more if he doesn't want to) and you sticky it at the top of this forum. So people will stop asking. :)

Lance
30th May 2008, 10:53 PM
How about new users actually reading something to see what's been discussed instead of making uninformed comments?

Sticky topics that are not updated every day are ignored almost as much as the guidelines.

Does anyone know if HD is going to run on RCA signal? The Bladestorm demo was HD only, which has kinda spooked me for...WO HD.

I can`t believe that it would be HD only. That would be commercial suicide, but I don`t know any more than you, Chrono.

Hey, does anyone know if WipEout HD will run on the PS3? I only ask, because I heard rumours that it will be a simultaneous release on PC, Wii, 360 and gameboy. I've only got dial-up, how long will it take to download? How much is 1Gb anyway? I love the way in WipEout, if you double tap the accelerate button, you can do a wheelie all the way to the first corner, and then hop out to run to your safe house, before nipping to the shops for some milk. Will this wheelie feature be implemented? I hope so, because it would be 4w350M3!

It is less than 1 gig

Any chance you can give us some technical info/jargon on how you've managed to get so many tracks looking so incredible at 1080p60 and still bring it in under 1GB?

Like, what sort of compression is being used, etc.

Is there any chance when/if a full WipEoutPS3 game comes out that it might feature uncompressed 7.1 audio and come on a BD?

I'm really looking forward to the Dolby 5.1 play on this game, but I drool to think of an all new WipEout game for PS3 with uncompressed PCM on it.

:dizzy

I think a lot of the textures are a combination of procedural and bitmap texture-mapping.
since the ps3 can only hold
256 mb main ram
256 mb video ram (ie textures etc...)
so with 6 tracks you really shouldn't have more than 1GB of data considering the ship data stays the same on all tracks.

So Mr Colin Berry what the exact file data size of the Wipeout HD game? Any chance of giving us a confirmed release date? Also tell me straight off will the 15th of July be a significant date?

Bytehawk
11th July 2008, 08:54 PM
week of 15/7 = fatal inertia release in EU
there is little chance Sony's going to put Wipeout up at that date too

There seems to be a fascination with this that I've missed, jeez it's less than a gig, who actually cares about the exact size?? What potential use could anyone have for such apparently useless information?

"It's 978 MB"..................and???

Darkdrium777

Oh God I hope it is more like 879MB rather than 978 MB. That would be terrible...

It is clear that an answer to the first question is useless, and there is also an implication that his statement is a lie, hence the demand for exactitude.

Of course there is no chance of a confirmed date. Another useless and harrassing question.

Who are you to demand an answer, especially to such a vague question where its meaning is implied rather than directly stated.

In my opinion, that is an uncivilised and insulting post; it is full of disrespectful attitude to someone who deserves considerable respect for work and dedication. See to it that you do better in all of your future posts.

KIGO1987
12th July 2008, 12:03 AM
The goal there was not to demand an answer at all; they were simple questions any consumer would ask for before purchasing a product. As I am interested in this product.

I donít go out of my way to create uncivilised and insulting posts full of disrespectful attitude, which achieves nothing. I read my posts multiply times before posting them. That is not an offensive or a disrespectful post it had language that could have foreseen as offensive due to its direct, simplicity nature. But I repeat myself that was not intended to create any disrespect to Mr Colin Berry. I believe my wording was direct at worst, but I was certainly not demanding anything, they were just simple questions that many other people would ask also. I am not going to continue, but i am going to conclude it there, that is all.

Colin Berry
12th July 2008, 01:04 AM
Its less than a gig, I wont give an exact file size as its still subject to small changes and is rather pointless information at this stage

There is currently no set release date

I am sure the 15th of July is a significant day to some, its bound to be someones birthday for starters, for me... well its next Tuesday... hrm... I dont know, it might be lasagne day in the canteen which would be good. Which reminds me - Rob since you left, I dont think meatloaf has been on the menu once, I think they retired the dish in your honour

It could be useful information if one has already almost filled their HDD prior to the game hitting the e-shelves.

Can't imagine how one would accomplish that feat, though. o_o'

Most games install files on the hard drive nowadays. If people played ALOT of games, they could have many many installed files on the hard drive.

If anybody does'nt know this already. The official download file size of Wipeout HD is;

998MB

If you've got a really slow net speed, something like at 256k, like i (25-28kbs transfer rate). The download will take between 11 to 12 hours. So half a day. So be prepared to leave to console on and leave the house for a while and do something during the mean time. Because shes gonna take ages.

Darkdrium777

Hehe I was quite close with my 978MB MB assumption xD

Lance
25th September 2008, 09:31 PM
We should listen to what Colin says.

And to what he doesn't say. He seems to be accurate either way.

[guesses on the math, being too busy right now to fire up the mental calculator or the computer ones or the independent ones] Even with the pre-load file added to the main download, it still comes under 1 Gigabyte, yes? [when we're counting true binary account rather than hybrid decimal byte-counting]

Darkdrium777
25th September 2008, 09:32 PM
Yes. Lance you should be able to download the preload file (100kb) in under ten minutes ;) The rest of the game though... :O

I cannot currently meet the other download-speed-unrelated conditions, so the slow connection doesn't even matter. Yet.

I'd like a 1GB DLC, so that would be : 16 new tracks (8 + reverse), a few new,
balanced, ships, a few new modes (like Elimination, online Zone etc), and all
the glitches/bugs (appearing on the dedicated thread) fixed.

Complete an utter shiit Paul,

256kbps connection, which equates to about 25-27kbps, then when you go over the data cap in a few weeks, it drops to 20th century speed something just above dialup speed, its really really and i do emphasize really do not enjoy having to have to deal with this bandwidth, i have to deal with it to November too, not good.

ADSL2+ 8mbps im looking at getting next:) No more cranky Kigo:)

Australia has very crappy internet infrastructure in most places.
