    Default another (new) IGN preview

    New IGN preview published today (March 28th)

    http://ps3.ign.com/articles/862/862824p1.html

    Pilot assist? I didn't know about that but probably just because I failed to read the fine print in one of the other previews

    it's basically just acting like a strong magnetic field that pushes you away from the banks to avoid scraping and crashing. I hope it can be set to mandatory disable in multiplayer, because it IS cheating, practically.

    useful after barrer rolls: you could even point a wall and still avoid from crashing on it..

    relax, guys. this is for people new to the series, and it definitely makes the game enjoyable for someone who couldn't handle the ship otherwise. it's not like you can get any ace times easily that way. in order to bring wipEout closer to the masses (read: casual gamer), I think this is a very good feature to put in.
    If SL really forget to make an option for multiplayer to restrict the pilot assist, then everything is lost that can be, but I don't think this is gonna happen.

    I'm not really worried-- just surprised. It sounds like Pilot Assist slows down your ship so it's probably (hopefully) only meaningful for competition amongst newcomers to the game. If that's the case, it really *might* be helpful for introducing new players to the game.

    no, it doesn't slow down your ship (at least not that I've noticed) - it just keeps you off the walls.

    What is the aim of the race if you don't need to know how to control your ship ? Excuse me but... I don't want to buy "Train Simulator" !
    I don't think that it's a good feature. When developers think their games for the "casual gamers", the games become too easy or too repetitive for the "real gamers"... Consequently, the real gamers go away and the "casual gamers" don't play more than before, because they're casual gamers ... and the serie takes a bad reputation because of being not as good as before.

    Please, don't make this game funny for my parents. Thanks...

    again, RELAX. you haven't seen the pilot assist in action yet. it's just fine. helps beginners to enjoy the game right from the start, and that's exactly what it's there for. Doesn't mean they will even stand a chance against a skilled pilot.

    Yep, it bounces you off the wall so early and forcefully there is no way rookies will beat even less experienced pilots. Also, if you let go off the steering, you'll still crash into the wall. It's no AP - it's probably just there to prevent your own "contender eliminated" on Outpost7 or something. ;-)
