yes 5 days... and the day after it releases I am driving to Orlando to meet Jeff Rubenstein at the PlayStation.Blog Meet-Up. SONY is buying everyone some homestyle BBQ (and sweet tea) and Jeff even said that he would bring WipEout HD to the meet because *I* like it so much! LOL And he also says that we are going to play games for PRIZES!! Hahaha, I hope they don't have a WipEout HD tournament, for their sake! Bwahaha!

Wip3ou7 | September 19th, 2008 at 8:58 pm

Iíll be there! Taking the day off and driving three hours coming from Clearwater Beach. By the way that map reminds me of *The Last Guy.

Jeff Rubenstein replied on September 19, 2008 at 9:19 pm
Hmm, well since youíre such a WipEout fan, maybe Iíll have to bring it alongÖ

And 3 hours from Clearwater?? You can make better time than that!

Wip3ou7 | September 19th, 2008 at 10:38 pm

That would be awesome! Youíll know me when you see me, Iíll be the guy wearing the WipEout HD shirt. And 3 hours is my modest estimation, I could hit some turbo boosts on the way there but my driving record here in FL is nothing short of Phantom Class, which means Iím on the verge of being Contender Eliminated. =(

I have a problem, I have just moved to Newcastle to Uni, and though I have free WiFi access I am unable to connect with my PS3. This is not good.

No HD for me until I can get this sorted........:(

Axel
20th September 2008, 12:55 PM
Can't you temporarily connect it to a internet source so you can download the game atleast? That way you can get some practise in for online mode when you do sort yourself out :)

Yeah am going to have to make friends with someone who has a house and their own internet! That is my mission for the next 4.5 days. Am going to make a plea that due to my course (Computer game Software Engineering) It would be helpful for me to be allowed access to the network.

Worth a try anyway.

And 3 hours from Clearwater?

On a bicycle, perhaps?

Shouldn't take but about two hours, should it? And that's allowing for a lot of slow-downs through towns. Of course, if one stops to have dinner... :)

Just a few more days until we can start the longest download ever. Any takers on how bad the speed of the download will be? I'm betting something along the lines of 2-3 hours for the full download to complete once a bunch of people start trying to purchase the game.

I live just outside of Orlando, but I have no transport. I probably wouldn't be attending even if I had a car 'cos there's other things higher on the priorities list now. If it were a WipEout convention, now thAt would be a different thing. :)

Be prepared to try and download this the second the update hits. They are giving us Wipeout HD, Megaman 9 and Burnout Paradise in the store update on thursday. If these are all as popular as it seems like they will be, the speeds are going to be very slow, so the sooner you start it up, the better. Especially if you can miss the majority of people who will start it up when the get home from school/work.

hi guys im new here and a big fan of Wipeout ... bla bla ;)

I have a question and i am very thankful to any answer.

I would like to know if there are any technical differences between Wipeout HD for Europe and Wipeout HD for the USA (for example).
Cause there are some games like Tekken5 DR which runs @60fps in the states but in 50fps in Europe. Today in the HD generation those differences seem to be oldschool but till now nobody could gave me an accurate answer.

Earlier on this thread I had commented on how my Uni halls will not allow me to connect my ps3 to the wifi here, this has been solved to an extent, i am buying mobile broadband so will be able to download the game!:):)

This is the good news, however as some of you will know the ping is probably going to be astronomical so if I can actually play online without annoying everyone remains to be seen.

But anyway I am excited and can't wait to start downloading!

In Perth there is a very good definition to describe a person who drives a huge SUV/4WD in the inner Urban areas even though that car would probably never go of road in its entire life.

Actually, I had my first lurking session around Wipeout fusion, while living in the US - trying to figure out how to sling-shot the tail of the craft to not hit that damn ad sign in zone-mode on one of the tracks (cannot remember the name). To date, I still haven't come around a more well-written FAQ for any game compared to the ones provided by Hellfire.
... and I still remember how my contact lenses felt like when reaching higher zone speeds :eek (it quickly became part of the routine to take out my lenses and put on glasses before starting my game sessions :dizzy

Btw. I won't be driving an SUV until the CO2 footprint for those types of cars looks substantial different ... Especially, while living in Denmark :).

I got a prepaid visa credit card just to buy wipeout, but I didn't realise you had to write everything uppercase, and I couldn't figure out where my security number was.

Anyway, I tried to add the credit card more than 10 times, and now I have to wait 24 hours before I can add money to my wallet again.

I don't think I can wait that long.

Does anyone know if I can buy the game under my gf's PSN, and still be able to play the game, no problems, on my login?

Axel
25th September 2008, 08:10 AM
Na that wont work mate. What you might have to do is create a new PSN account. But here is the problem. The card you used may still be on the system for blocking until the 24 hours is up. You can try this by making a new account. It would be very bad security if you could purchase with your CC after making a new PSN account.

I rang Sony (Australia, as the New Zealand helpdesk closes at 5pm), and they said they can't lift the 24 temp suspension.

I took time off work too. Ah crap! I might go to blockbuster and rent a game so I've got something to play tonight/tomorrow. If someone would like to suggest a game to play to get me in wipeout mood, that would be cool (I was thinking Pure [the motorcross game], but I don't want to get sick of racing).

Your phone seriously has no international calling feature? There`s no + button? Weird.
his number would be +33__________ (the underlines are for his mobile number excluding the 0 at the beginning) Try holding down star to get a plus.

Good work keeping up the PSN-watch! :)

SugarOTW, most PSN games I have work on every login account on the machine, no matter which one downloaded it. The only one that doesn`t is Super Stardust HD. But to be safe you might be better off waiting until someone confirms HD will work on other accounts and isn`t locked to just one.

Well the EU store doesn't update till around 4 in the afternoon. Occasionally this can be as late as 6/7so over here at least we have another 7 hours or so to wait.

I honestly don't know when Aus/NZ store updates, though it may be the same time as the other traditional PAL areas.

Basically I don't know!

Sorry


I have to pack up my ps3 and go to my games lab at University to download the game!

Hopefully it will connect. If it does my connection will be quick anyway!

I thought the PSN store would be updated earlier. I am usually not into the whole PSN thingy (as I have no games yet!) so I was very dissapointed to find out I have to wait for afternoon or night to come around.

"Newbster
Posted September 25, 2008 5:48 PM
I just called Sony's Australian helpdesk - the game will not be released in AU tonight (25-Sep) because of something to do with the American servers apparently. The operator told me that it may be available after 8:30pm, but he couldn't say when for sure. He suggested it should definitely be released by mid-next-week.

So, those of you like me who are gagging for it get screwed again by Sony - the one and only."

Oh damn, that is terrible news for you guys. To be fair they didn't say it was going to be released elsewhere apart from Europe and America. Looks like they covered their backs there.

I hope you guys wont have to wait that long. So it basically confirms they are expecting a huge surge of downloads.

25th September 2008, 12:37 PM
I hope for you (and me but I won't be able to play it tonight) that the store really gets update (not like the previous time where WOHD was cancelled without any warnings).

With the release of WOHD and the PSN version of Burnout, I hope Sony anticipated all this.
For the moment, I only transfert money to my account to avoid any payment problem, but ...

ye it's very good although don't recommend playing with a megaman fanatic in the room -- they get a bit gushy over the nostalgia

Hisho, you should arrange some games with the aussies and new zealanders when you finally get it. We're in the same time zone after all.

Every company has a right of service, or the ability to remove a service... so Sony could turn around tomorrow and remove the WipEout HD servers if they so choose to... or limit the service, eg: servers online between certain timeframes...

I personally have never read through any of the fine print on the games, but it would seem that a game in SCEJ eyes will be supported for a minimum of 1 year... (assumption would be the same for SCEE, SCEA, etc...)

After that time, if the game community has moved on and no one is playing online, they will provide notice that the online part will be removed and it will be offline only from then... it's just a cost saving function, if no one is playing, then that server can be used for a newer game that everyone is playing...

One of the reasons why only having a "remote servers" option for online is, in the long run, bad. An Ad Hoc option should always be available.
After all, you still can do multiplayer with 2097 more than ten years later but other games like Monster Hunter for the PS2 have lost multiplayer for ever.

All hail XLink-Kai,, the solution to this problem! :D
Provided you can somehow plug in the PS2 to your PC, I remember seeing a PS2 section in Kai... A frequent user, please correct me if I'm wrong.
