    Talking about anime as a genre or drawing style is pointless. It's like you've seen Jackie Chan's Rush Hour 3 and you say cinema can't tell a good science fiction story.

    Of course not!
    I'm just steering towards what everyone else is seeming to say, and running with it.
    It seems like a lot of people think live-action would be a fluke. At least, from what I can see...
    But, hey...in my opinion, anything can work, if it's done right.

    when I suggested that it could work well as a cartoon/anime, I made that suggestion because animation seems to allow for a much broader range of concepts than what modern cinema does.

    A fan film done well could inspire a higher budget effort, but if a studio was approached with a concept they'd pass it through a couple of dozen layers of filtering, and the net result would be bland and terrible.

    If an animation team was to make something based on wipeout concepts, the chances are much better of something resembling the universe that we know from the games may actually making it through to the end product.

    Yes, if handled right, a wipeout movie could be great.
    but the chances of it being handled right without being based closely on something else in a linear medium (as opposed to a game) are slim to nil

    Oh no, I completely agree.
    I just didn't want to imply that it would be an automatic flub.
    You are right; animation would allow for a much more...attainable...effect. One example could be the Animatrix, or, for the CG Endeavors, Appleseed Ex Machina or other attempts like Spirits Within or Advent Children.
    For a WipEout movie of that caliber, though, it seems like it would cost a very large sum of money...

    This would be the estimated level of success acording to the final format (and my honest opinion ):
    Broadway musical-0% Movie-20% Animation-50% Novel-95% Videogame- 100%
    So get the original back-story writers back to work and take the wipeout spirit to the forefront!

    I don't; the interactive game is better than a movie could be.
