    I guess that's why unity square is in night time then. Would been cool if they finished that mode, a much better choice than combat, which doesn't really fit in 2048 imo

    As nice as DLC for Omega would be, the dev's time is better spent on a new game at this point.

    That said, the upcoming VR mode is a generous gift indeed, and could be the foundation of a new WipEout game already!

    You have to be honest about this VR update.
    The Omega Pack was 'Remastered' in the hope people would upgrade their PS4's to the Pro model.....maybe some did, I suspect a lot didn't...who knows or cares TBH.

    The VR update would have to be put in the same category, to sell VR headsets......In this particular instance, I suppose it was enough of a temptation for me to bite the bullet and get one... BUT would I had there been no announcement of Omega Pack VR ?
    Probably NOT.

    But by the same token, I recently upgraded my TV to a 4K HDR one......well anybody that know me and my spending habits would know I would want to make the best use of it, so a PS4 Pro HAD to be got as a priority, as I already had PS4 Pro enhanced games, and wanted to see if it really was worth it....Generally, YES [ If you have Horizon Zero Dawn ...Jaw droppingly Good]

    Unfortunately for my bank balance, once one upgrade happens, there tends to be a trickle on effect, and yet more gear is updated /acquired, thankfully this affliction only seems to occur every 5 to 6 years.

    The whole problem with upgrading this stuff is the disc storage it takes up for these PRO enhanced games, they average at 90GB with install each.....work it out, it doesn't take long to fill a 1tb HD, and you are going to want them to get the best out of the gear you have just bought, otherwise, what was the point of buying it?..... it's a vicious cycle, which has cost me nearly 75% the cost of a PS4 Pro again, to get a 8tb HD to store the games on.....there's a reason I got the BIG one, and that's because the PS4 WON'T allow you to have multiple USB 3 external HD's.....Only ONE !

    It will reject any attempt to format a second external HD.....so, you might as well get the biggest one you can if you are going to use a external HD, which I think everybody is going to have to do at one stage, at least until the PS5 or some other system update fixes the problem.

    I hope there is a some DLC that comes along with this.....I suspect some sort of update to the menu to allow VR viewing of craft, Like GT Sport, will happen....well I should hope so....it will be a bit of a lack luster release if there isn't.

    Zombie mode would be awesome!
    Instead of extra content,I would like waiting years until they make a new WO game

    I dunno guys. Considering the name of this game includes the word "Omega" I'm not expecting much in terms of a new WO game. That said a new WO game would be great but I'm honestly not expecting anything. Same things goes for DLC. I'd love to see DLC for the game. Tracks from older games, long lost teams, etc. I'm down for anything that keeps WO going. Here's hoping the Omega collection isn't the "end" of WO.

    That’s an absurd and far-fetched thing to assume.

    Geez… Are you always so disrespectfully dismissive of other people’s comments? There’s nothing “absurd” or “far-fetched” to posit one shouldn’t be too hopeful in expecting a new WO game after a remaster basically called WO “End” Collection is released.

    Fact is we enjoy playing a niche game with limited appeal. Sony knows this which is likely why we haven’t gotten a new WO game since 2012 and is probably part of the reason why SL was closed (I know I’m speculating here). As awesome as WO is it doesn’t pull in the best sales numbers as other racing games like Gran Turismo. Also this past E3 and PSX saw nothing new on the WO front expect for VR for Omega.

    I remember reading years ago that SL had been spent 12-18 months working on a WO game for PS4 when they were closed by Sony. So there’s always hope, but I’m personally not expecting any new WO game on PS4. We’re already 4-5 years into PS4 and nothing new for WO has come out. Anything new would be a super welcome surprise though.

    I wasn’t being disrespectful.
    It’s just that to think an editor will base their business choices on anything else than profitability of a particular asset is ludicrous.
    If WipEout racks in money or helps to promote another product that racks in money, then you can be sure they’ll announce a "WipEout Alpha: Next Generation/Revolution/Forever".

    F-Zero fans have been waiting for much, much longer, and the future isn’t looking bright for them. At least we have a franchise that’s very much alive at the moment (as opposed to "on life support").

    Comparing WipEout and Gran Turismo is kinda eh (avoiding all words that could offend you).
    Both are racing games, but of completetly different subgenres, hence the amount of people giving it a try is much different.
    Furthermore they aren't really rival franchises...

    Well Grand Turismo sport had been boasting about VR capabilities prior to going on sale, but sadly VR implementation is a bit of a disappointment for a lot of people who bought it for this feature, even after two big updates, the VR portion of the game is still exactly the same, as in limited to two lap races against a single AI in arcade mode.
    I suppose Polyphony are getting numbers from Sony on how many people who own GT Sport are actually using a VR headset, and they are basing future VR updates on when it reaches a predefined mass before those updates are given the go ahead.

    Which makes me wonder, if after Polyphony has had so much time to build the VR portion for GT Sport and has only come out with what it has to date, if VR on the Omega pack will work when playing online?
    If it does, will a standard PS4 be up for it, or will those with a PS4 pro be getting a much better experience.

    I'm guessing the VR update will be released around the week or fortnight before the HD/FURY /2048 PS3/VITA servers close down, it would seem the best for Sony, impact wise, as a lot of people will be thinking of Wipeout one way or another over that time period
