    No!

    Why not a poll organized on-game wipeout to choose among circuits of old wipeout?

    I think Akira was Katsuhiro Otomo...

    It could even maybe have a cel-shaded filter to make it look hand drawn manga-ish...sigh the possibilities are endless...

    i have to say, if i had bought the game and they later said the DLC was just reversed tracks, i'd have been dissapointed.

    For those who are going to buy HD it's good it's all been thrown in from the start as i'm sure many would have preffered entirely new environments or awesome remakes from previous titles and would have felt a bit cheated if they had to buy a pack to race as, say icaras, but had to buy a pack with just a reverse version of, say moa therma, in it as well.

    i hope the game does well, so they can make more DLC, but by the sounds of it if there will be any, it will depend on sales and be a loooooong way off.

    personally i just want it to do well so the next 'real' wipeout can be realised.

    any way to buy more than one copy??? hell, I'd buy about 10 copies just to help boost sales...that's how desperate I am to see this series do well and have DLC...

    as it's a download i don't think you can buy multiple ones, you could go to a friends give him/her some cash and get them to download it!

    it's hard to say how well it will do, with actual ps3 owners, i can see it been appealing...and selling well with them.
    i don't think it will sell consoles though...except to the odd hardcore fan...but then i'm a hardcore fan, and i can afford a ps3, but i'm giving this one a miss, it's not what i want, that, and the lack of other titles...but that's another story.

    i really want the wipeout universe to continue and for HD to be a success, the possibilities of DLC are there, and if it sells well, people will get bored of 8 tracks pretty soon, so if priced right, DLC could continue and the title could be supported until the next one appears.

    You can only buy it five times max. After you've got to reformat your system completely or buy another PS3.
    Note: if you're actually considering to buy the game five times: create five users on your PS3 and make five master PSN accounts with them. Then add five times the appropriate funds to each wallet and buy the game five times. Of course you only download once, but you can pay five times if you want.

    I don't think one person answered the question, probably bad wording on my part

    I didn't ask what kind of tracks would you like (neon, goth, dark light, fruity colored). I was asking whether or not you think they should have downloadable tracks. I don't care to really myself with the amount of time I have to play the game (not much), and would rather focus my efforts on the 16 tracks that are there, trying to be as good as possible on those tracks, rather than spreading my time out over 400 different tracks. That was why I mentioned, even in WOXL, I can still knock time off my records, even after all these years. yeah, I do like alot of tracks, but when it gets to be too much, it makes mastering the game difficult for someone without alot of time on their hands. Of course though, in the end, more is normally better than less. I would kill for 8 more XL tracks right now.

    personally i like the 'idea' of HD, i wouldn't mind a wipeout game, which they continually added to, through DLC, so yes, answering your question, more tracks and ships and maybe features too would be a good thing for HD.

    perhaps releasing two remakes, two new tracks, two new ships in a pack every so many months or so, thus creating (as someone mentioned in another thread) an ultimate version of wipeout. one complete package. what wipeout 3: special edition almost was (i say almost, as it only had 8 remakes! not a bad thing at all by the way!!!)

    But HD isn't 'that' wipeout, if they plan on making the tracks look the way they have for HD (and this is just my personal opinion here) they don't look how HD versions of them looked in my head, too shiny, too much going on. the track surfaces look kinda wrong, don't get me wrong the game is a triumph for the ps3, but if they remade altima vii, say, i wouldn't want the surface covered in weird patterns and shiny things everywhere...

    I understood you Al, but didn`t have time to reply! As another person with limited playing time, I agree with your point. Pulse had too many tracks too soon, and with all the DLC coming in a big splurge there were 32 tracks before I had even learned the turns in the first 24. That spreading thin was one reason why I gave up on Pulse, apart from it being a bit . The thought on this might be different for those with lots of time on their hands, but the release rate in Pure was much better, with 12 tracks at the start and then the DLC coming slowly enough for me to keep up with it.

    Of course there is still no Pulse DLC at all for a large portion of the world, which isn`t good, so the perspective for many there would be very different.

    If the game is good enough, though, loads of DLC just isn`t needed, even though you wouldn`t turn it down, because you`ll be happy exploring the tracks you`ve got and trying to be as good on those as you can.
