    Default Am I a traitor?

    I gave in and bought Fatal Inertia EX... Sorry SL, if WOHD had come out first I would have never considered spending $30 on FIEX... even if they had come out at the same time I would never have bought FIEX... but... all this waiting, anticipation, and guessing... well, I had to get something to keep me occupied.

    Na mate, who would blame you for getting fed up with waiting. That said, FIEX is pretty poor if you ask me so you must have been desperate!

    This is why HD was delayed - to give FE a chance.

    I wouldn't think so^
    According to Colin, WipEout HD is not entirely a finished product. That's why is was not released.

    On topic: personally I think that's just 30$ wasted but it's just my opinion (And mostly everyone else's) about Fi EX... But it's your money, and we certainly cannot blame you for wanting to play an antigrav game so soon... We are all waiting as well.

    Now that you have the game, make a review

    The developers work to deadlines. They don't say to Sony "keep paying us until we finish and we don't know when we'll finish" and then have Sony say "don't worry about it - take your time".

    The HD developer also pointed out that the final 1% was related to certifying the product as gold.

    The release of the third party Fatal Inertia game absolutely affected the release of Wipeout HD.

    Of course it did and the entire situation sucks ass. Fatal Inershit isn't even out on the PSN here yet, looks like more and more and more waiting but owning a PS3 it seems to the norm, a nice shiny console and a thin stream of software.

    Hmm, what's that, 360? You have a ton of games already? Why yes, I like you too :3 C'mere you *hugs 360, whispering "it's okay, you still play Quantum Redshift"*


    Damn Sony for scooping Psygnosis back up after WO on the Saturn and 64 At least they're working hardcore on WOHD since they KNOW it's gonna be met with lots of criticism and expectations. I'm still waiting another year or two to buy the monolit- I mean PS3. I still can't justify +400 bucks on a machine that only has two games I want (WOHD and WOps3), which aren't even out yet, and I don't even own an HD TV to really appreciate them on... THOUGH, I freakin WANT Speed Racer on bluray, and THAT might be reason enough to make me get an HDTV and a PS3. Let's see if they re-add backwards compatibility.

    "Damn Sony for scooping Psygnosis back up after WO on the Saturn and 64"

    Sony already owned controlling interest in Psygnosis in 1993, well before WipEout was created.

    Ahh, Fatal Inertia. The demo on the PS3 is way better than the demo on the Xbox. Still, I can't bring myself to pay money for it. It just seems like it'd be a waste. I'll let the PSP be my home for WO and just keep on waiting.

    And to continue what you guys have discussed, the PS3 has a slew of games coming this fall that look pretty nice. Little Big Planet and Resistance 2 to name a couple.

    You really like nit-picking don't you?

    point being, they were still relatively independent enough to have been able to publish games for Saturn and N64 at the time. As a matter of fact, I have a mid-90s issue of GamePro with a small article talking about some of their games landing on Saturn and how they were breaking from Sony's grasp at the time, but I don't feel enough of a need to rain on someone's parade as to really sift through all my old gaming magazines just to scan what it was talking about.
