    Maybe I am getting impatient. I would love to see progress at the very least. Another reason why I don't have much faith in Sony ATM.

    Well Sony need to do something for the PS4, the games released so far for it haven't exactly set the world on fire, and there have been very few exclusives.

    It makes me wonder what would happen if Formula Fusion became a huge hit.

    Would Sony think, hey, we have the original Wipeout sitting in deep freeze, lets get it out again..... but then would they stuff it up by giving it to a team that wouldn't do it justice?.... looking at the long line of really dumb decisions that have been made by Sony over the last 5-8 years one would have to say Yes, they probably would, and they would want that team to build that game ASAP, which would compound the problem.

    Or even worse, they would tie it in with a dead horse and make it a PS NOW exclusive, which was doomed to fail as soon as they released the prices for the service ...you want HOW MUCH?... you're Dreaming Sony.

    Yeah, I don't have much faith in Sony any more either, haven't in a Looong time.

    Yeah they seem to want things outside reason, and it's not just with games. They've been like this with movies too. Remember Spider-Man 3 and the recent Amazing Spider-Man 2? The way they handle things and take everything into their own hands and yet still expect it to work is ridiculous. Their demands and the time frame for said demands is also very unreasonable. Sam Raimi even expressed that his work was meddled with and he only included so many villains and useless plot points due to pressure from the studio. Venom wasn't even meant to be in the movie. And then after something like that fails; and understandably so might I add, they just treat it as an actual failure and forget they had anything to do with it. It's like Sony is being run by damn babies. I'd definitely have my doubts if they indeed do announce that they're gonna produce another WipEout, but don't say which studio is gonna be developing it. The obvious and "correct" candidate would be Firesprite, or possibly R8 but that would be unlikely since they're working on FF.

    What I wonder is, regardless of the team they would employ, if they would/could take HD/Fury as a technical base to create the new game. And I don't mean as an inspiration, I mean the actual physics engine and gameplay features, in particular.
    They only need to copy that part of the code and all the rest, graphics, design, storyline, game modes, can be adapted.
    And voilą?

    That's always been the case.

    In all honesty, I would rather Sony sell the IP to Wipeout.

    Surprising as it might seem to forum members...the bidding might not get that high if this sale was to go through.

    If the IP to Wipeout were to be put on the market.....personally, I would, if asked, help finance R8 to get those rights..... it just seems to me the rights were in good hands ....then no more stuffing about .

    They should hire Bigsnake to produce it. What he has accomplished regarding the physics by himself is quite amazing, almost replicating the earlier physics exactly. Add people to help him with the graphics and ai so it doesn't take so long, add Rob Foxx and Arnaud to get it just right.

    Nick Burcombe would be the other obvious choice.

    I know I'D donate to the cause of buying the rights to WipEout. That would be amazing!

    So far I'm pretty damn well impressed with Slipstream, Ballistic and Formula Fusion.. Hadn't played any of them but they look pretty spot on in terms of signature Wipeout.. I wouldn't get caught too much on names, AG Racing seems to be still thriving.. I just need to be able to afford a damn PC someday.. Great work guys!!!

    Don't get me wrong! I'm happy about all the community driven games, too. But a new official WipEout game from a spirited developer could be something special, too.

    WipEout will live on in games inspired by it
