    Two page HD article in Official Playstation Mag this month including a small interview with Tony Buckley. A little misleading as the person writing the article states "Wipeout HD is essentially a best of package that includes re workings of the most popular tracks from ALL THE PREVIOUS GAMES" So if I said that to you what would you assume? Because I didn't realize tracks from Wipeout 3 were in contention for this game.

    Gare d'Europa please.

    Given that that same feature led you to believe the models would be reused from Pulse, I put less than zero stock in what OPM says. Actually I've considered them rather poorly for a long time (roughly since they slagged off the last LoK game).

    We've not had any rumours of the older games being included in HD, and the screens released so far are all of Pure and Pulse tracks...

    If I were to be optimistic then I'd be hoping for Spilskinanke over Gare d'Europa, (those are my top 2 from 2097). I rather doubt we'll see either though.

    I don't know what keeps compelling me to buy that mag, I'm a sucker for official stuff I guess, it also says Triakis is Australian ( I mentioned before I think) and that the Assegai team had no noticeable weakness, oh is that right lol.

    Didnt want to create a new thread for this:
    WipEout HD looks STUNNING
    Tuesday 22-Jan-2008 12:45 PM Ten new screens put previous shots to shame
    24 Comments
    We thought WipEout HD looked decent enough when we posted the first shots of an early preview version, but these new shots show the game has come on in leaps and bounds.

    Advertisement:
    The textures have more... texture, and the lighting has been massively improved by the looks of it.

    Hopefully all these improvements won't come at the expense of the luscious 60fps smoothness in the demo we have here.

    You can see videos of that in action (and in comparison to our old favourite, WipEout 2097)
    in an earlier feature.

    We're also hoping the handling has seen as much attention as the visuals, because we thought it was far too tight to be a believable hovering ship. 2097 had the handling spot on - why change it?

    LOL... I don't know what they're talking about... The earlier screens look just as badass to me...

    OFF TOPIC: As for Little Big Planet, that does look like some serious fun... just another plus for when I get the system (including an HDTV) for HD down the road... mabye a little later than release, but whatever... The new generation of game consoles may not be too good for my health... I'm probably going to turn into a vampire-hermit!!!

    Those screens are, in fact, a little old - believe it or not.

    It looks a bit better than that now - especially with regard to the ships. We have the guys that did the cars for F1 Championship Edition building the ships for HD (Egg took one look at the sheer amount of polygons he could use and ran away screaming. Probably. ), and they're looking tremendously good.

    Egg's not doing the ships? I would have thought he'd love to have been able to free himself from the restrictions of the PSP. Although I guess they're basing the new ships on his Pure and Pulse designs?

    I have to say HD looks tremendous, but have to agree with the guys at computerandvideogames.com .
    XL/2097 was superb in every way, getting rid of the male voice for both race starter and weapons announcer was a big let down when i got wip3out. The race starter in the HD vids is also a disappointment. More of a robot sound would be better in my opinion.

    Ive been away from the wipeout scene for a few years but just got back into it.
    Not sure if in the subsequent releases after wipeout3 there was the ability to go up and around the inside of tunnel walls going through in a helix path type of thing, would be pretty good.
    Anyway, after all that HD still looks hot and Im really looking forward to it.
