    You have the fact that to navigate the 2048 menu properly, it needs the VITA's back control, and a camera for online photo crap, this incompatibility, although small in the scheme of things, is why it was never made 'Officially' available to play on the PSTV.
    You can navigate 2048's menus with a PS4 controller when linked to a PSTV that has had the white paper hack done to it so it can play 2048, but I would hardly say it works well.

    Those factors make me think that Sony would have to either make one of three possible changes.
    The first could be to 2048 it self so it could work properly on a PS4, they are remastering it anyway, so I suppose this might happen....long shot really, as Sony are too cheap to pay for this.

    Second could be that Sony intend to bring out a new PS4 controller that has the same controls as the VITA has/had [Oh, More $$ for Sony - possible, if not now, in the future ]...... that way they could flog off all VITA titles to PS4 players and still have full compatibility with all those games....much like PSP titles on the PS3.

    Third could be system software update that allowed current PS4 controllers to work in VITA compatibility mode, allowing all VITA functions to be mapped to the various buttons...[ Possible, but not likely as there is not enough money in it for Sony]

    The fourth option....what could that be?
    Well the PS4 pro was sold as 4K ready, but strangely didn't have a 4K Bluray drive in it, so the only way to get that on the console is via download.......I don't think the Omega Pack is going to be a 4K downloadable game from the PStore.

    Nope, given that Sony has pretty much always used Wipeout to push new tech, I don't see them changing things now, especially as it's going to cost them so little to do.

    I reckon Sony is going to totally stuff everybody at this forums expectations up, by making this OMEGA PACK it's first 4K STREAMING GAME over the subscription PlayStation NOW service....... I've been calling this one for ages, as it's been on the cards for ages now, and I bet you this is will be what happens.

    Fancy paying U.S.$45 for a 3 month subscription to play a game you already have been since at least 2009....I don't think so.

    I hope I'm wrong, but there is a sense of inevitability about this.

    then , will be an emulated game from both game to work on PS4 or a new old game remake on PS4 with new development to integrate the 3 games ? that 's the question ....

    Also - I think that graphics will be totally diffrent. Remember Wipeout HD first trailer? There were included sounds from WO Pure and also track design looked much diffrent.

    I really hope that this whole remaster thing is to check the state of the franchise: is it alive and kicking or not.
    If an outcome is positive then a proper new WipEout game awaits us. At least these are my hopes.

    Anyway got really hyped after this news, even if it's a remaster.
    My PS3 is still plugged in to play HD Fury (guess the time to unplug it is near).
    2048 looks awesome and play wonderfully on a big TV via PSTV. With the remaster it will be even better.
    WipEouts 1, 2097, 3SE, Pure and Pulse are perfect for Vita.
    And still... I want more!

    What bothers me though is this (taken from this article on the official PS blog, here):

    There are nine modes available in total:
    Zone, Tournament, Speed Lap, Time Trial, and Single Race from HD
    Zone Battle, Eliminator, and Detonator from Fury
    Career Mode from 2048

    No career modes for HD and Fury? How come?

    PS. And yeah, the guy with the t-shirt killed me.

    HD & FURY had Campaign mode, but 2048's had online career mode that was different if I remember correctly, as you needed groups of four people to be online in the same game.

    The omission of Campaign mode on HD & FURY listed in the official blog, could be a oversight, but when you get thinking about game play for a STREAMED GAME, campaign wouldn't really fit into what for all intended purposes would be predominantly a ONLINE ONLY VERSION of those games.

    I remember around 6 months ago at least, that somebody at the UK Playstation forum mentioned something about Wipeout Fusion being remastered.
    Try as I might, I have never been able to find that post since, as it was mixed in with other gaming topics, and on a list of other PS2 titles that were shortlisted for remastering.
    If any of the pre PSP Wipeout titles had a chance of being remastered for the PS4, I guess it would be Fusion.

    It's good news. I don't think it'll be a streaming game. They could get 4k from a physical release. The Blu Ray drive just won't read 4k movies. Games are different.

    I hope 2048's issues get fixed. But in any case, I'm buying day one.

    I think its a step in the right direction to begin with, this all could be a test to see the viability of resurrecting the franchise, if the community is there to support this game from day one then maybe Sony will consider bringing WO back to its former glory. That's just speculation though but I am happy to now finally have a reason to start playing on the PS4 once the collection arrives.

    Totally agree with you, 2048 is awesome IMO so seeing this game be fixed of its bugs would be very nice. While I doubt that they will put Racebox into the game it would be much appreciated.

    At least this announcement is bringing the community back together!

    Thatís funny. I would have bought the game on day one (as well as a PS4... and a 4K TV...) had it been a new game.

    But since itís not a new game, I will probably wait 2 years for the PS4 and TV screens to become cheaper.

    Not because Iím bitter, just because itís three games Iíve already finished.

    And to be honest, I got over the 1080p graphics really quickly in WHD. Whatís important to me is design, gameplay and novelty.

    Edit: and yes Snakenator1, I want to support the franchise, but Iíve got my limits I guess. A great company wouldnít dwell on their previous products, they would innovate to surprise their customers.
