Hello All !!

My first posting here, and hopefully it hasn't been covered before. I recently picked up a used Limited Edition Fusion box with a holographic ( I can't remember exactly what they're called ) box. The artwork is the same as the regular cover, but kind of animated with 5 scenes, the regular box slides out from inside this sleeve. Any ideas how many of these were made ? I would have bought the game new, but fancied the funky box...

Fusion and WO3 rules !! Although I can't see me playing 2097 again, well maybe just a bit. Fusion is just so fast and smooth compared to the PS1 versions.....

Keep it out the walls !!

Not entirely sure of the numbers, but I know they were only a European thing.

I did have two - I gave one to Al because he begged me! ;)

Now I just have the one, gathering dust with my copy of 'Fusion inside...

A slightly woken up person

I get you a money order for how much the price that special
edition game is.
American currency to Euro currency
that game won't be gathering anymore dust when I get my
hands on it.

gathering dust? mine too. I'm going to play the contest though, so everyone can get the same time :D.

Hi DJ Techno and all,
Well, I don't think I'll part with mine, but should I get another I'll let you know. I think that it may be a kind of promotional item, and was not officially for sale ( far as I know ). I've never seen one for sale in the stores in the UK.....

RBR :wink:

strictly speaking (yeah, like I talk any other way :P ) you shouldnt see that edition of `fusion for sale anywhere, as it is solely designed as a press pack.
I am still pestering Sony for the press pack of GranTurismo 2002 concept. Apparantley, it`s awesome!

when you get a copy of Gran Turismo
get one for me to

If the Fusion LE was like some kind of promo then...
will somebody get me a copy and send it over to the states
via UPS or Fed Ex :wink:

is there any difference in the game?

17th October 2002, 10:41 AM
what-- fusion?

dont think so. All you get extra is a press disc which has pictures, interviews and biographii on pilots and designers, including rob "12inch" francis..... :o

rob "12inch" francis..... :o

I'm hoping this Rob guy is referring to his collection or his love of vinyl records and that he's some sort of DJ.

If it is what I think it is, he better stick to designing video games.

problaly Rob has a love for vinyl records or something?

I whether prefer cd's.
I think he should stick with what he does best.

17th October 2002, 07:16 PM
i think we should all stick with talking about things we know something about

Like I said before about getting a copy of the Fusion LE box.
If anybody is intersted in selling there's or just plum won't to get rid of it because it's collecting dusk. contact me at www.Wipeout95MTL@msn.com my e-mail address.
or if you live in the United States my business number 1-803-447-5026
I want to add that collectors edition box to my addition of Wipeout stuff.

All I have is the limited edition holographic dust cover - the case inside it contains only one disk and that's the game disk.

In certain territories the "press pack" was sold as a limited edition run with that holographic dust cover. I think Wamdue got the complete kit when he picked up the game on launch day in his area.

As for Rob "12inch" Francis, I have no idea why he would have the "12 Inch" part stuck in his name. I went to Rob's flat a few times to get changed for five a side football and he didn't have a collection of vinyl anywhere on show - usually just a pile of playstation games and a lap top or two.

I'll send him a mail tomorrow and ask him all about it, although he's a big tease so he'll probably wind me up before he reveals the truth! :-? :)

I suspect he had it put there with a bit of a wink and a smile - Rob's just that kind of person - quite a risque sense of humor and sometimes you don't know whether he's taking the piss or not! :D

it has nothing to do with vinyl.... one of the other programmers calls himself "12 inches bigger than Rob F" :lol: its just something that made me chuckle while I was reading the press pack biographies about team fusion.
Its really good to see that the team from such an important project still know how to have a laugh

I can vouch for that - Dado, who worked on the special effects for Wipeout Fusion, is currently running a Toast and Chocolate Spread bar from his desk!

He charges 10p a slice, but hot toast with Nutella is a fabulous afternoon snack! :D

Slice bread with some jam for a dime(10cents)?

I'm sorry I could not just pay a dime for slice bread. I they would have to include something to drink and second helpings of the food for a coin.

got the LE pack too :) Bought it off a game-journalist

Cool, how much did you have to pay him or her?

15th November 2002, 11:41 PM
450crowns, a new ps2 game goes for 550-600crowns. So it was a really good deal.

Didnt get any instructions booklet tho, only the LE-cover , the game and the press materials disc. I posed some pictures here when I got it. ;)
