    Yeah, 1 and XL even. And some jackass set a time with this retarded controller called the RacCon that I can't even beat when I play it with a normal controller. Go figure, he spends five minutes with the damn thing and aces it. *cough*

    I have the original wipeout on the Sega Saturn.... I never knew that WipEout XL came out on the Saturn though... I will have to hunt that one down and add it to my collection.

    As for a review of FIEX, I'll write one soon. I haven't completed the game yet, so if I wrote one right now, it might not be fair. But I am close to finishing the game and I'll be happy to come back and share my opinion.

    I spent my antigrav-money on Wipeout 1 on PSN instead. And after playing the Fatal Inertia demo im satisified with that decision. =P

    Wip3ou7, metroid4me: 2097 was released in PAL territories, and XL was released in Japan.

    Nothing really interesting about screenshots other than textures look grainier, transparencies on the ion trail, missile effects, etc don't look as good, and the framerate is noticeably lower. the NTSC version is still playable (sorry PAL guys, runs damn slow... even PAL 2097 on playstation is too slow for my taste). I was planning on making a video or two at some point but have yet to get around to it :3

    They never took it out, backwards compatibility is still in the 80GB model and the 40GB model up to some extent.
    The 80GB model will play all PS1 games (99%) and a grand majority of PS2 titles (estimates say around 85%).
    The 40GB model will also play all PS1 games, but will not play PS2 games at all.

    The 60GB and 20GB were the less cost efficient, which is why they made an 80GB with half the components of the PS2 hardware, the other half emulated on Cell; in order to reduce production costs as well as give an viable option to people with PS2 games...
    The 40GB is a budget option for those who wish to only play PS3 games, as is has no chips of PS2 at all, and therefore cannot play PS2 games because the emulation for one chip has not been accomplished yet.
    Sure you may argue that they removed it from the 40GB, and while that is partly true, you still have the other option (80GB) if you wish to play PS2 games.
    But honestly, even though I have a 60GB PS3 with full compatibility (99% of PS1 and PS2 games), I find myself playing only PS3 games. I took a quick glance back at Monster Hunter on PS2 just to find out that the online servers were closed and I went on with PS3 games. Of course I didn't get the PS3 only for WipEout HD, and I'm playing other games in the meantime.

    The release of fatal inertia has nothing at all to do with the release date of HD

    I love how you can always shoot down wild speculation, Colin.
