    hahahahaha nice one

    Well as with all games there should be a way to turn off open chat support. I would have thought that feature would be available.

    No did not. Never liked it. All my "mic experiences" online have always been while playing with people i know, so the level of conversations was quite normal.

    I'm using mic sometimes with metal gear online with strangers and i have to say that the situation is generally acceptable.

    From what i hear reading in various places the situation seems worse on XBL than PSN ... maybe it's oly a matter of statistics ? ( more mics on XBL than PSN )

    So it appears each ship now has its own distinctive sound signature; I didn't hear enough in the various videos I've seen to tell most of the ships apart, but the Triakis, Qirex and Feisar seem to have a very specific sound now.

    If I heard correctly, the Triakis has a low, constant droning sound happening, sort of a muted version of what it would sound like to have a leech beem primed. The Qirex has a high-pitched jet sound like an idling F-16 sampled into its signature. The Feisar flies with the uneven sound of an oversized blow torch, a flamethrower more accurately.

    If this is the case, yay for the break from uniformity. I've been saying for ages that every team's ship should have it's own sonic personality that sets it apart from the others. I want the added benefit of knowing if I'm being tailed by a Triakis, Qirex or Ag-sys without having to look back. I want that kind of visceral sounding feeling of a race that I got when I saw the pod race from Episode 1 in theaters.

    Perhaps eLhabib or the others can confirm.

    Distinctive sounds for each craft would be incredible! I wonder what sound an AG Systems makes...... I think it might be "BOOM"!

    LOL!
    Jack, you might be right there, but I haven't really noticed yet (I always fly Assegai! ). But I did notice, once, when I tried Piranha, that it sounded quite beefy, like a flamethrower.

    Okay, there's definitely some personality to each of these things. I just heard the Ag-sys -- sounds like an electric shaver. You can hear it start to approach at 4 seconds in in the link below. You can also hear it at the 35 second mark onward as the Triakis approaches it. It's loudest at 38 and 39 seconds into the video.

    If you also listen closely, you can hear the low droning hum of the Triakis. Tough since it's the ship being played, but you can hear it quite well just as it crosses the finish line and the video cuts off.

    I can't imagine how sonically hardcore it'll be when there's eight of us pushing these ships to full tilt on Phantom.

    Cool! I would never have noticed the sound differences from the vids but it does seem to be the case.

    I really like the "ambient" sounds in Wipeout so will be excited to "hear" the multiplayer game-- wish I had some better speakers (and a HD TV) to enjoy the game with, though!

    The barrel roll sounds for each ship are distinctive too, but they all share a common theme -- instead of the brief alien-like screeching sound in Pure and Pulse, there's a quick whirring of gears and hydraulics during the barrel roll. This vid shows the Assegai doing it at the 36 second mark.

    AG-SYS sounds like an electric shaver Flash because it is a rice burner from Japan, thats probably running a high inertia forced induced engine by Nissan.

    While at Triakis HQ in Adelaide there probably running a tunned variant of the LS7 engine. Hear the sound of that 375kW 7.0 Liter OHV V8....vroom! Smart editing there SL Have a ship that each sounds different, biased from there country of origin
