    I'll probably get back on once it's live on plus too, especially at the weekend.

    With regards to new WipEout, Studio Liverpool had a new game in development for the PS4 before they were shuttered, so one can assume any new game, could be this, just finished and reworked for the next generation. And after all, every PlayStation has had a WipEout...and the PS5 is coming.....so......

    Yeah, that WO that never made it to fruition, be it true or not , is pretty well known about at this forum.
    But the more I think about it, maybe it just might of been a 'Console' version of 2048 that was being made, with different menus, but then I double think that with , well why wouldn't they have released it at the same time as the VITA version.....who knows?

    I'm sure there are plenty of WO tracks and new craft in various stages of completion that nobody except those who worked on them have seen, it stands to reason given how long SL/ Psygnosis was operational.

    Even the guys at R8 games, having a very small design team, have several tracks [about 6] that have yet to be seen in the full game of PACER [Formally known as Formula Fusion]....I've recorded videos when I was testing them.

    Well for some reason the PS+ games are available to be downloaded now, well at least in Australia [It usually works on a timezone system, but even this one is 24 hours ahead of usual]

    I found that you can select the Omega Pack, but all I got was the Digital Art book, not a downloadable version of the game.

    If for some reason it's been detected that I already have a DISC version, which has disallowed the download version to work, I don't know, either way it a bit of a bummer as it means that I still don't get to pilot Van Uber.

    Maybe I'll try again in 24 hours time......it might just be some glitch ?

    Just made a jump today on Wipeout after looooong time and I was glad to see a full lobby list. Even if I think it won't be for too long..

    T here were 10 lobbies, but there would be more if it wasnt for the "bug" that let you display only 10 and doesnt let you scroll, also as I remember you can only choose lobbies of your region. These thing need to be fixed.. online could be more active, specially now that it's receiving a sprint with PS Plus.

    Also I already know that probably most people will give up since Wipeout is an extremely hard game.. a good detailed tutorial in-game is what this game also misses. Like, a tutorial that lets you notice all the particular and most advanced techinques.. you have to learn them on your own by focusing on the game

    Same happened with me and the handsome Jack collection. You're doing too have to uninstall the disc version before you download or install the digital version.

    Welp, having spent an entire night on it, wipeout is kinda backish? Same vets and rivals were all there, but mostly I spent my time emptying venom and flash lobbies. 9 friend requests later, and I got one "long time no see" message.

    I did get a record 14 "you cheated and I'm reporting you" messages. Maybe it's a be careful what you wish for situation.

    If you want the wipEout scene to regrow, please don't do that. There's no fun in beating newbies by half a minute anyway. Just wait for them in phantom/A+ when they're already invested in the game.

    Nice, good to here the lobbies are full.

    Also, it has been mentioned, but totally worth mentioning again, if anyone owns the disc version, uninstall it and then go to the store and get the PS Plus digital version as it includes the pre-order ship, Van-Uber.

    Totally worth it for any hardcore fans that missed out on the ship before.

    So it's essentially the digital version that always was, but for free?

    I'll need to check if I even have Van Uber - my copy was from a code I was passed by the devs after the WipEout retrospective thing, so I don't know if there's anything special about it. (i.e. might be vanilla and not "pre-order")

    Good to see people are jumping back on. I haven't played since I tried it with PSVR about six months ago and almost barfed after a handful of races!

    The problem was that some of my old rivals kept showing up in the same lobbies! At least I saw very few elimination lobbies.
