    Default Wipeout HD multiplayer

    So what's the state of wipeout hd multiplayer these days. Last year, the infosheet was claiming that there was to be a team vs team mode, with 2 players per team. I haven't heard anything since.

    I'd love to see some in game (or even web based) community features, like clan creation etc. The only mention of specific multiplayer modes on the HD website are speed lap, which sounds pretty cool, but what else is there?

    We took the game through campaign, race box (single race), and online modes, the latter being devoid of any noticeable lag, even with competitors slamming into (or being obliterated around) us. We found that holding L1 opens the voice chat channel in online races, although we were sadly sans headsets.
    Voice chat confirmed!

    HELL YES! Thank you Fiddlesworth for that find! Wipeout HD is completely a sell.

    couldnt decide if my question was worth a new thread, decided no in the end as its about multiplayer play

    what is situation for hosts cancelling races? This is the one thing that stopped me playing GT5p online, people quitting after a lap because they werent winning and causing race to end for everyone

    If for some reason you have to have this, can we have an option to turn it on or off please? I realise this depends a little on the network setup and as such may not be possible. but its a really bad "feature" in other games..

    I was playing gt5p yesterday for the first time since I bought the game. It seems you can't just quit online games anymore.

    Does anybody know something about ad-hoc play in Wipeout HD? Is it possible for the PS3 to communicate with other PS3s without an internet connection?

    Would be great to see more than 20 PS3s together at the E.W.C. 2009.

    You can play over LAN with routers and switches, but there is no adhoc.
