I have heard rumors of this but have been able to find any reliable sources that aren't just speculation or wishlists... it would however cause me great happiness and joy if it was true that such a port is in the works.

so on to my question does anyone know if this is actually happening or if these are just rumors and nothing more?

It would be nice, but you would think it would have happened by now. Also, it would be better if they ported the Mac version so you could have analog control. The mac had multiplayer as well

Hehe yeah best possible version absolutely though I would enjoy anything, but as you say you'd think it would've happened by now... oh well one can always hope.

I think sony would rather have everyone playing HD. It's the showcase game for their system.

There must be a fair few people with memories of 2097/XL who would love to play it again, and subsequently be likely to purchase HD/Fury once their taste for the WipEout series is rejuvenated. I don't think they mind if people play HD all that much, as long as they buy it.

That reminds me, I have to try and get a copy off of Amazon. Although if it appeared on the store, I'd be more inclined to get that. :D

The PS1 disc plays just fine on my PS3 slim.

I guess (for now) the only way to enjoy WOXL on your PS3 is to get a copy on eBay.

I wonder if the disc swapping technique works on the PS3 though...

I'll give it a try later.

this may well account for why we are yet to see 2097 and 3 on PSN...


2097 was advertised as been available on PSN in the uncharted game manual, so i would guess they intended to have it out, but found bugs/glitches or had licensing problems. :(

but with crash 2 going back up soon (they fixed some bugs, which is why it got taken off PSN for a while) then i guess there is still hope for the classic wipeout's to make it too!!!

Well, i think it is rated by PEGI (european age advisors) and probably in the US PEGI too (don't know his name), but i am talking about 2 years earlier, so it's odd not to be released until now, even a little advertisement of the problems, or whatever could happen.

If only Sony would release 2097/XL for PS Store, seeing as how I never played either games for many years...

I just noticed something that may or may not be the reason why Sony hasnít released WO2097 for PS3/PSP yet: At least with my PS3 (1. Gen. Slim) I get regular music errors. Music plays fine but stops somewhere in the middle of the track and restarts again. Same goes for WO3:SE sometimes.

Havenít made any studies yet about that; maybe there is some system behind it and itís not purely random.

But I doubt Sony can fix that as there original game codes are lost and thereís probably no one who would do the job anyway.

It's probably also got sometihng to do with Red Bull.
