    Never had that screen on the Omega collection online works really well for me and is much more reliable than PS3

    What do you mean, are you serious? :/

    I'm surprised and sad PS+ is such a big issue for so many. That wouldn't have occurred to me, having PS+ has become so normal to me.

    On the flip side of the PS+ issue, I have been wondering how much WipEout HD being a game that was available on PS+ on PS3 has affected the number of people who played it.

    The main reasons for "online dying" in my opinion are:

    - they kept the faulty old game engine, so the game was broken from day #1 (pole position cheats, turbo-cheats, net cheats etc.)
    - they altered the game to something looking and sounding like "Mario Cart"
    - many of the 2048 tracks offer very bad contrast so it gives you a pain in the *ss playing them.
    - Lobby limited to 10 rooms (a prophet programmed that), they simply forget to implement scrolling lol.
    - ........

    No one plays a game for long in a sad condition like that. Those who quit spread the word - others then avoid spending money on that.

    Once again it looks to me like a cheap, loveless money-maker. All they had to do was alter/add a few files and press "compile" at the PS4-dev-console.
    This obviously did not convince veterans and new players - so RIP WO.

    Ah - yeah - i'm enjoying to watch Omega going down - those responsible for this deserve that.

    as for "faulty old engine" i don't get it Pole postition cheat? Turbo cheats? If you mean RNG for it, yes its weird ,There should be a limit in online only like 2 max. Net? If you mean netcode, it's been improved a lot on ps4 version. the ps3 netcode wasn't great, even if you have a very good net

    As for scrolling i don't think they forgot to "add" that, theres filter in lobby menu so maybe they thought it wasn't really needed for scrolling. I do miss it though

    The last line of your post... A bit too serious there

    @jf yeah that error iw very annoying, i always get it
    @missmolotov i think WOHD was the first game on ps plus back in 2010 when plus wasn't really worth it IMO. It did become free 1 year later after psn hack tho

    People don't like waiting for games to fill up either and quit out which sucks, when if you wait one or two minutes, usually people will join.

    I've beat the campaigns and stuff, but still drop in online every now and then, trying to support the game
    Lots miss it I did too for 10 minutes. If you have a version of the game that isn't from EU, it will default you to the region you are from. So those with it will check for games, but 0 games 99% of the time in other regions than eu so they host instead (will also default you to the region ur from) and nobody joins, and they never try again, i really really hope they still work on the game and 1.02 isnt final and remove the region list and make the lobby list global.

    I think it's probably mainly down to lack of promotion/marketing, yes, WipEout Omega did sell very well in UK/EU, but there was no vocal incentive to play online, if you look at the games that go big with online play, they usually have online play implemented heavily into their marketing strategy as well as having some of the big Youtubers/Youtube-groups like Vanoss, SeaNanners, Kyr Sp33dy, Chilled Chaos, etc,. playing multi-episode series and if you look at it close enough, you'll realise that this was a MASSIVE factor in people picking up Rocket League. WipEout Omega just didn't have any of that.

    There's also one big massive open goal which I think they missed completely = they should have given players the ability to play any ship on any track and work out a performance equivalency/balance of performance.

    Happening all the time to me. I cannot join like 3/4 of the lobbies I try to join, it's so frustrating.

    Hey there. I played a few races with you this past weekend and remember you from PS3. This happens to me occasionally too. I think it's because too many players are trying to fill up the lobby we want to join. Instead of giving you a "this lobby is full" message we get that error instead which is very annoying. Sometimes I refresh the screen and look to see if the player count in that lobby goes down. If it does I try joining again and it usually lets me in.

    the online is A real joke with omega collection, PS3 allows me to play whenever i want without asking for 50bucks a year. on PS4 i need to pay that ridiculously expensive price, but just cannot play whenever i want. that's the first and last time i paid for ps+. i thought it would make things better, not worse. what a shame and waste of money.

    Hi BlackReign, I remembered you too. I'm not really sure what is the cause, I have tried to refresh the screen several times and yet it seems like I'll never be able to join a lobby that hasn't let me in in the first time. Sometimes I've been able to do it after reinitiating the whole game, but most of the times it isn't possible.

    Today it has been a nightmare. As JF says, there wasn't (almost) any problem with online in PS3 regarding the joining of lobbies, I hope this is fixed the soonest possible,
