    The 60Gb does indeed contain some PS2 chips, but not the full compliment like the US 80Gb does. I didn't hedge my bets - I got a 60Gb the month they announced the 40Gb was replacing it.

    A fair price for HD for me, Arnaud, would be £14.99, although to be fair I doubt I'll buy HD at any price.

    how come you not buying HD then Rob, you know something we don't or are you refering to the fact that you will not have to pay at all?

    Happy 4000th post, infox

    I would by HD if the price is less than £20, My mum would be very annoyed otherwise.

    Ps2 backwards compatibility:

    20GB/60GB US - Full GPU and CPU hardware
    80GB US/60GB EU - GPU Hardware and CPU Emulation
    40GB - Nothing

    Now we got that straightened out. =P

    I just don't want it - I've explained it elsewhere before on the forums, but the game that WipEout has become just isn't for me. Right now I have a raft of PS3 games I can be playing - heck, last night I was playing SOCOM Confrontation for a while and that's a PS2 game, so I'm in no rush to buy a game I don't want or need.

    Essentially: Barrel Rolls + Sickening Speed Pad Zoom Effect = No purchase for me.

    Yep, Sony straighten us EU customers out good and proper!!!

    TBH, I don't really care, upscale all you want, PS1 and PS2 games look pretty cac on 42 inch screen. I didn't buy a PS3 to play PS2 games anyways, but my gripe would be the way us UK / EU dudes are treated differently.

    Rob, I undertsand with the barrel rolls, never been a fan of those, rather just race.

    I have not played teh game so I canlt comment on the other elements. Sorry for making you repeat yourself, not been on here for a while, got bored or sore hands on the PSP versions.

    You are right about lots of other games too with more to come (I can't wait for Little Big Planet) I don't seem to have the time anymore, but then I guess running a company, getting married and having kids will do that

    I don't know if I will ever buy HD; I don't own a PS3 yet because of the ridiculous high price. I can't see paying more than 30 $U.S. for the game.

    I prefer the Nintendo approach to game hardware: make a game console instead of a total home media system. I think it even helps keep the cost of the games themselves a bit lower. If they owned the Wipeout series, I suspect we would get much fairer distribution and pricing. But of course, they don't. "Them's the conditions that prevail." - Jimmy Durante

    GT5p has over 60 cars, 5 tracks, and up to 16 players online racing I believe, as well as this GT5 TV thing. Warhawk granted has only four maps (If I recall correctly) but a ton of alternate layouts for these maps, online only but is 32 players online with many vehicles and weapons. And thus chaotic action.
    Therefore, like the 1Up guys said: 30$ is ok, 40$ is a bit too much (Especially if DLC's price will be outrageous like the Pulse packs), but if they do it at 20$ that is really cool.
    I do hope they do not place the price to high because this game is highly anticipated by non fans of the series, and if the price is too high WipEout may never be able to completely rise from it's ashes once more like we all hope it does. SL must realize that WipEout HD only is the game that can save them completely and help them gain a new fan base. (We all know Pulse tanked, and we are the only ones who bought it without question because we are fans of the series) If they don't, they will price it too high and only us here on the forum may get it because we like WipEout, but the other non fans out there will not because the price will be a barrier.

    Oooh that went down like a lead balloon. Perhaps that was OTT my apologies. You hear speculation that the price could be £30 which is clearly overkill and I loose my sense of rational thinking instantly, its obviously a weakness I have, gotten me into trouble in real life as well not just on the forum here.

    However, why wouldn't I believe this? After what they did with the packs and its Sony so. It's not a question of me personally feeling its too much I will pay whatever they want, but these stupid casual gamers that they seem so desperate to cater for aren't going to cough that sort of cash up, especially when theres an extreme lack of promotion for the game and they have no idea whats in it.

    Why do these people have to do this to my game? Go away and screw around with Motorstorm already.

    I thought it wasn't the devs that set the prices? I find it hard to believe the guy that does would ever visit a fansite, do they even play the game? Nevertheless, point taken, shame felt.

    I can't be the only one who round here would be Uber-pissed if the series ended due to arsehole pricing though.
