    Going on from Wiggle, I actually think VR will be a superior version of internal view. Not because it'll look better, but since the perspective is not a few inches above the track it gives a clearer view of the track and all the pads. And obviously the fact that the POV doesn't spin along with the BR's means there won't be any disorientation

    Then again that's a no brainer, having the POV spin with rolls in VR is bound to cause some degree of motion sickness.

    Thankfully my uncle has PSVR so I can try it without having to buy my own.

    For some reason I've always thought that PSVR was PS4 Pro only but after some googling I see that this will work on the standard PS4. I'm getting a PSVR for this for sure.

    This will be really fun I think. Ive tested the VR and thought it would be great for wipeout. What would be nice would be an option for VR races only, since my guess would be that it would be harder. Split screen would be out as well, so a LAN option between systems would also be nice so you could play someone in your own house head to head. Heck, a lan option would be nice for the regular game as well so it could survive the eventual (years) shutdown of the servers.

    And here I thought the Omega Collection was finished for good. Glad to see this VR support

    Playstation is sure putting a lot of effort into the remaster. You guys think they're planning something bigger for WipEout in the future?

    Not unless they pull their finger out and promote the game in the USA, currently Sony UK and Sony USA seem like two members of the same family who don't really get on together, and subsequently remain isolated from what each is doing.
    One of the pitfalls of the American corporate culture when applied to a huge multinational is that the employees become drones, and don't think out of the box, it's not encouraged and is not good for you job prospects if you rock the boat, so far easier to keep flogging Americans FPS rather than AG racers.

    I doubt UK sales alone would give Sony enough impetus to make something totally new, far easier to keep flogging the same tracks to you.
    It depends if there were any tracks in the SL archives that were W.I.P. at the time of it's closure, and have since been given to Clever Beans to complete, I think that might be the only scenario that would have us get any new tracks
    You might get new craft, but since you would be playing internally in VR mode it's hardly a enticement, unless you like watching the other players craft go around.

    The thing with racing in VR which should happen a lot, which has happened to me occasionally when playing online with the PS3 version of HD, was when you had a another craft come right up besides you while going down a straight, it's happened the most on Vineta K forward for some reason.
    I always play with internal view, and sometimes when the above has happened, I could see into the craft besides me cockpit, and see the other pilot and the cockpit and controls, this has made the game for those brief seconds all the more realistic.

    It's those little things that make a game special.....I mean I must be one of the few people that actually played [still do occasionally ] HD/FURY in 3D, the input lag is horrible, and you would never win a online race while playing in 3D because of it, but if you pilot using internal view as I do, it's a blast....pity 3D mode never made it to the Omega Pack, the extra grunt of the PS4 and especially the Pro version, should have made that experience all the more fun.

    I just hope they do this VR version well,and it works on ALL TRACKS.
    Not as a half measure like the VR on GT Sport, where it only works on one track and while viewing your cars in the garage....I mean honestly, what's the point, that's almost like false advertising.

    agreed, 3-D would have been awesome on the PS4, there would have been no framerate issues

    That would only be false advertising if they actually would have made VR mode seem like a huge special feature...buuut, that's simply not the case.
    (Anyway, this isn't GT Zone)

    I just really wonder how to place these VR ships in canon...
    (This is really my biggest concern)

    Managed to find a short clip of gameplay, also Xdev confirmed there will be a specific feature where if you play online with VR, you'll only find lobbies with other people using the VR headset. That makes it more worthwhile to try playing online with it since you won't get creamed by regular players.
