    Default Omega Collection free on PS Plus in August

    WipEout Omega Collection free on PS Plus from 6th August - 2nd September.

    Hopefully this will re-ignite the online lobbies for a while and give some people the chance to experience online properly and also grab a couple of trophies they may have missed.

    Yeah, you'll get a small spike with online players that will last about 2 weeks, most will be from the USA I imagine [As most EURO based players will already have it], and being American, most will gravitate to playing Eliminator if things run true to past form

    The same thing happened when WO HD was given away after the hacking incident on the PS3.

    You just have to read the posts at the Sony blog, most people are happy about Augusts free games, but by the same token, more are talking about Sniper Elite 4 than the Omega collection.

    I'll download it anyway, as I have the disc version which doesn't have the Van Uber craft

    Yeah I was just gonna say, happy to see new people play the game, but 99.9% of them will never get past flash speed and exclusively play eliminator online, so, nothing for us veterans to get excited about...

    Well to be fair, when you have veterans playing against new comers, I imagine that most first time pilots will be put off by losing races by DNF.

    Please everyone be polite, friendly and try to get some people to at least attempt to master the steep learning curve. I myself plan to play with a handicap in an attempt to keep the races closer.

    I'm also hoping to see some long time friends log in, in hopes of seeing people online for once.

    What I meant was that only 0.001% of new players will likely stick to it long enough to get good.
    I play 2048 exclusively online and I usually pick Quirex agility (slowest craft in the game) until someone beats me.

    I plan to fly EGX in HD, and Qirex Combat to try to handicap myself to even things up. At least until I see one of you gents join the race.

    I'll have a go once the PS+ freebie is live, but TBH I'm getting too old, God I'll be 60 next April , but my main reason that I don't play online is my internet is too slow to play on the UK server from Australia, it just so controller throwingly frustrating [Currently running about 9MBPS -due to finally get upgraded to 100MBPS internet around FEB 2020], and the time difference is a killer, especially due to reason one.

    OT: Have either of you guys got wind about a new WO being made for the PS5 release ?......I've had a few P.M's from 2 different people about this [because apparently they have been asked if they were interested to be involved - By who they didn't reveal ], but that's as much as I've heard.

    What do I have to do to get involved too?

    Yeah, I think I'll stick around a bit too this month. I'm not as difficult to beat as most of you here anyway ^^;

    I'd be very surprised if this was actually happening, but I would absolutely love it! And you just gave me hope again, curse you! *shakes fist at sky*
    And those two people who were asked to be involved... they... DECLINED?!

    I don't know if they declined or accepted, I don't even know exactly what the invitation RE: Involvement was, but if I thought that it involved high level 'Test piloting / Bug Testing', I think you might be able to guess who, out of several candidates, might of been the people asked........Not quite sure if both are forum members.....one is a PS4 WOZone 'Community Member', not sure on the status of the other......WO Veteran I think [Probably a member of both]
