    Yep, I'm gonna do the sixaxis thing. I'm a big fan of subtlety and despite being a gamer for 15+ years, I think I can say that as far as driving/flying is concerned, I'd rather use my arms than my thumbs.

    I'll give the motion controls a try but I have a feeling that the analogue stick will do for me

    I thought it was strange in the 1up video that they talked of sixaxis and dpad, but neither of them mentioned analogue stick at all.
    I was ready to dismiss sixaxis entirely until watching that video though, so they have at least convinced me to try and learn it.
    I suspect I will still be going back to analogue stick with tilt pitch, however.

    same here. I think I will try sixaxis, combined with nosecam view (which I normally don't use) - that sounds like the perfect combination for total immersion. However, for competitive play I think it will be analogue stick for me.

    Default I'm the Comic Book guy.

    "Zone went all the way back to Pure."

    Was what I believe one of the reviewers said. He also said he's been playing Wipeout for ten years. During those ten years he either accidentally forgot about Fusion or purposely forgot about it. Like trying hard not to think about it's existence.

    Comic Book Guy aside, it was great to hear guys other than us on the forums geek out the series let alone HD. Always good to see more Wipeout fans. I agree with them about the HUD. I remember seeing pics of it before the review, but they brought about a good point about the HUD being functional especially when you need to quickly take a glance at it.

    When I first saw the review I was like, fat chance I'm going to use the motion controls. However, after reading the follow up threads and having a conversation about classic controls in another game I will give it a go. You see, the conversation I was having last night was with another hardcore NHL (EA Sports) player. He didn't like the new control scheme. He was telling me he couldn't get used to them. I was telling him, I was like that but I just kept playing and after a while and up to now I cannot go back to the old controls. I feel like it's second nature now. Hoping that this will be the same for HD.

    Maybe I'll even the first person view a try too. Been third person from the beginning.

    I'm really keen to try out the dual shock 3 controller with this game , I thought it was awesome how he said the controller vibrates when your pitch isn't in-tune with the track . I'm sure the sixaxis motion sensing will be an awesome thing to get used to , still dont think it will surpass the feeling of a neggie

    But imagine a negcon with the motion sensing technology for pitch control , now that my friends , would be the ultimate controller!

    I too plan on getting a DualShock 3 for this game. That pitch bit also got me in the bandwagon for buying a DS3.
