    Look, you guys are looking at this whole thing arse about.

    SONY are plugging the hell out of VR ATM, and any publicity is good publicity.

    SO, you need to use it to your advantage.

    Use the Wipeout Omega Community forum via the PS4 top get in touch with the member from Sony Ex Dev [Sorry I can never remember his name] to help organize a EURO based Wipeout Omega VR contest.....or better still contact forum member missmolotov about this.

    Get Sony to supply the consoles and VR headsets......for a example...have heats to decided a whatever sort of comp , to get a player from each EURO country flown to Vienna for the comp....win win win

    Sony wins for great publicity for both VR and Wipeout, the players win as they get to compete at no cost to themselves , and your mate in Viennna that owns the venue wins because of massive free publicity also.

    I am already looking into pretty much exactly what you said, blackwiggle, but I won't make any fixed arrangements as long as some key pilots aren't sure to be there. Don't worry, I know my fair share of videogame industry people

    I Know you do.

    Seems a lot of old record holders of the HD/Fury times, are currently in the top 10 in Omega equivalent times, but under different [other] PSID User names.

    This might have been part of the cause of the perceived fracture of the Online community, as it was in PS3 days.

    I could prooooobably make Vienna, but wouldn't be driving at that point as it becomes quite ridiculously far, which means I'd need to know at least 2 months (more being better) in advance when, and if it's taking place, so I can look into hotels and flights.
    As a side note, my employer doesn't allow participation/support of other publishers/projects, so i'd probably have to check with them if they're okay with me attending if it becomes Sony sponsored (although I completely understand if others would enjoy it, so don't worry about me ;-) )

    Not quite so strongly at this moment though it seems. ;-)

    Looks like Wien won't work then. New dates I suggest when doing it here:
    • Thursday 2018-09-06 to Sunday 2018-09-09 (week 36)
    • Thursday 2018-09-20 to Sunday 2018-09-23 (week 38)
    How about those? I suppose everybody has room for those dates. This is already leading to indecision hell and it would be a pity if no meeting would happen just because again only 2 out of 12 said yes (because I feat if no convention happens this year it could really be the end to the tradition).

    I am very sorry I didn't have any updates for you in the last weeks - the friend of mine who owns the VR place in Vienna is currently at the hospital, so I couldn't really talk to him in detail yet - also, interest in the convention seems to be nonexistent, since not even the seasoned pilots on here have answered...

    Hey guys, donít take my absence for disinterest. I donít have much time to check or reply very regularly recently, things keeping me busy (yada, yada, yada) Ė I know, bad excuse. I am still looking forward to meeting you guys. VR convention sounds awesome Ė so if somethingís still on the horizon let us know. Hope you friend gets well soon either way.
    But Iím also more than fine with Frankfurt. If August is still an option: the weekends around the 4th and 18th work for me. If itís September I could only manage to be there in week 36.

    I am still here! I was waiting for a reply from AmigoJack on your ideas eLhabib! As long as there is no fixed date and place I can not say anything for sure. As I pmed Amigo: please fix a date and place so pilots can either say: yes or no.
