    Is SL still based in the old Wavertree Technology Park, or wherever they were back in 1995 when the first WO was released?

    Psygnosis is pronounced "sig-no-sis" ...Correct? I just thought maybe some people might call it

    "si-g-no-sis"

    Nick Burcombe, co-creator of the original Wipeout, has used the nickname 'psyggy' for it, so I'm thinking that sig no sis is the way it was done, even though the proper way would probably be sy no sis.

    I believe that Rollcage 2 was also published in the by Midway... at least in the US.

    Correct. I have the RCII CD right next to me and Midway is on the label.

    Interesting story the one of Psygnosis.
    SL brought back WipEout with PurE after Psygnosis was terminated, I'm just hoping they bring back RC as well. How awesome would that be with W'O" HD's game engine!?
    That's probably too much to ask if it's a small studio though.

    SL is Psygnosis I believe it wasn't 'terminated' as such.

    Psygnosis basically ceased to exist when Sony acquired the last of its stock in 1998. Psygnosis was an organisation of administrative personnel who controlled more than one studio; once Sony owned them entirely and made all the decisions, Sony was the organisation. No more Psyggy. Studio Liverpool was one of the studios Psygnosis controlled, it was not Psygnosis itself.

    Anyway, that's the way I parse the logic.

    Yeah that's the way I'm thinking too. Obviously a bit of Psygnosis is still alive in Liverpool, or we wouldn't be talking about WipEout here. But the name Psygnosis does not exist anymore.
