    Default PS3 - Who's going get one for wipEout HD?

    Hi all,

    I have a PS3 and I am sooooooo looking forwards to wipEout HD and then a full blown rewrite version some time next year too - wicked.

    My questions are;

    1) Who on here already has a PS3?

    2) Who plans to get a PS3 for this game?

    Cheers, Chris!

    Me!

    Well, I'm getting one in time for Haze & Madden 2008, so when WipEout HD arrives it'll be ready and waiting.

    Not completely sold, because there will be Pulse at the time, and I might just wait a while, unless I just become possessed with desire to own it. It depends for me on how the control is. Pure with stonking graphics might not be enough, but if I can get smooth, negcon-style driving I`ll be buying sooner rather than later.

    No I do not have a PS3 but for any WipEout game I will buy any console.

    While I love the trailer and reckon it will be fantastic, given I already have Pure and will buy Pulse the second it comes out, there would have to be much more on the PS3 to warrant the purchase. As it is, I'm almost exclusively a handheld gamer these days just due to the way my life works.

    I'm pretty much a handheld gamer as well. The good news is that with the PSP and DS platforms running at full speed, life has never been better for gaming on the go

    No PS3 yet but seeing the Wipeout HD video makes my interest jump up 1000%.

    My guess is that it's just a matter of time 'til I make the plunge, either in the fall or sometime next year.

    If it was not for the poor backward compatibility, i.e., the lack of the Emotion Engine chip, I would consider a purchase every now and then. I am far from convinced by the combination of price and hardware of the PS3 currently offered in Europe.

    Moreover, I wonder if there would be any annoyance involved by using the PS3 together with a regular TV.

    On the other hand, I do not have to bother much in my current situation, and I am sure that Pulse will keep me distracted for quite some time.

    I will probably wait until next year before I even reconsider, but it seems far-fetched that much will have changed at that point.

    Sorry for the negative vibe.

    it's true to say you will not get the most out of a PS3 without a HD TV of some kind.

    I remember when I blagged mate mates Xbox 360 and run it on my old Sony 32 inch CRT and I was less then impressed. Then I hooked it up to my Dell 30" flat screen via component and was shocked at the difference.

    I am happy with the PS3 so far, I remember games being slow on the good old PS2 to start with so I am happy to wait, for now....

    I love the PSP but you can't beat the big screen, Dual Shock, 5.1 effect IMO.

    Well I have a 360 on an SD TV and it still looks great. Of course it would look sharper on HD but it's still a massive change from last gen on SD televisions. I imagine the PS3 would be the same.
