    yes overall if you did have a problem between the two , you should definetly be more concerned with the boost, not HUD, i just dont mind about either

    Well I've been looking forward to HD for ages and until I've played it I can't possibly say if I'm satisfied or disappointed.

    The HUD? It's fine and everyone will forget about this 'issue' pretty quickly when the games out I suspect.

    Also I don't think it's going to be the game that makes Wipeout really popular simply because its download only so an entire market of people have just been alienated right there. Dunno if anyone took into consideration people with low download allowances, slow connections, no connection?

    well to have any sort of internet on your ps3 it has to be at least broadband, which is more than enough to download games no problem from the PSN store from the console. and anyone that has a ps3 with no internet, get with the times and stop being cheap ,the internet features of the system...thats half of what you paid for right there.

    Have to agree with the download only aspect of the game creating a segment of the market that is bordering on a little niche...cause not everyone has the internet that we so take for granted... That is why I hope SL will immediately begin work on a proper sequel, new craft, teams, tracks and all for a Blu-Ray format release...

    Getting back on topic...

    No, I don't feel disappointed in anyway...having grown up with WipEout...(my sole reason I bought a Playstation One in the first place), I believe Psygnosis/Studio Liverpool has evolved the series in a very elegant and extremely appropriate way... Graphics wise and gameplay wise...they have stumble along the way *cough* *Fusion*, but I reckon they have picked up the pieces and re-assembled the anti-gravity speed-infested techno giant we have grown to love...some of the aspect that are gnawwing at me though are things like barrel rolls...apart from that, things like Zone, weapon absorbs and of course the psychedelic new Tron-styled Zone have cemented the series for me, into history, as a game that has always been consistently not only about speed and gameplay and graphics...but also predominantly about style...and HD has loads of it...

    Ya know, it still amazes me that some people think that other people can just decide to spend money that they don't have. Not to mention that they will offer people advice when they don't know enough of those people's situation to be aware of all the factors that must be taken into consideration when a decision has to be made.

    To repeat something that apparently can never be said too many times [because it is so often forgotten]:
    One person's reality is not everyone's reality. What is true for one person is not true for everyone.

    You work for 'em foxxy - it isnt at all possible to talk 'them' into doing a little something about it? (Im sure you could threaten to push a few random red buttons, or something..... heheh) We all know it doesnt belong.

    How much say on the final product do the 'bigwigs' have? i have a feeling that they have far too much say over how the final product looks - they are businessmen, not gamers, and in my mind they should just sign the papers and ship the game, without asking questions. In my mind, anyway.

    I don't work for 'em any more, actually - I left Sony a week or so ago.

    You've identified an issue, though - people who aren't gamers make sweeping decisions that affect the final product. That's why you get things like download ships you cant use in multiplayer, because those who make that kind of decision don't ultimately give a **** how much it upsets the fans of the game.

    Just expect this kind of **** - nothing is sacred in the games industry.

    No game will ever be perfect because people are always being listened to.

    oh yeah barrel rolls are lame, also. just feeding the fire. The wipeout HD backlash has begun before release!! mwahaha. yeah download only cuts the majority of the market out, which sucks but at least it'll get promoted like all hell in the ps store.
