    Default Check out this Wipeout render by Lee Carus

    Lee was kind enough to pass this cracking image on to me for use on the site - a render he created many moons ago for the original Wipeout.



    A larger version can be found here - a bit of a handfull for dial-up users at 558k. The original is over 2 meg, and apparently he has a "hi res" version, although I'm not sure we have the bandwidth to cope with that!

    Thanks Lee.

    I'm stunned! Is it just me or does this image cover about everything Wipeout is about? It just feels so... right. Very kewl stuff. Thanks for my new wallpaper to you and Lee. :)

    Very nice, indeed.

    Wouldn't it be great to play the original WipEout with the crafts showing this level of detail?

    Oh man, I'm a sucker for eye-candy. ops:

    Me too! I'd especially like to have a Wipeout game set in these exact colors. They perfectly resemble the high-tech-high-speed-sci-fi athmosphere I feel home in.

    Absolutely my take on it as well - for me this captures it perfectly as a high octane racing sport. I was less keen on the other take on it, with the advertising billboards and the almost commercialism of it, but this render is perfection.

    I just mean that I see the Wipeout universe as a futuristic form of motorsport, where it was all about the racing, the competition, and the spectacle, as opposed to being about the advertising opportunities for companies like Red Bull (not so bad) and Kappa (runs screaming).

    That's all.

    Glad you like it, it's humbling to get great feedback from yourselves too!

    Now that I'm back at Sony it's nice to be close to Wipeout again and I look forward to getting my creative teeth back into our baby in the future!
