    I know a guy here who used to write for a multi-platform magazine...but now he only writes for the Australian XBOX magazine...hmmm...wonder if he knows people, who know people, who killed people, who know people with the press kit...*ponders*

    I wouldn't be surprised if the "oversize flash disk" is in fact a dongle/decoder keyed to the disk (to discourage piracy). While it may be feasible to create a 100 or so of these for promotional purposes, mass-production would be too expensive. Further security features may require an on-line connection for the dongle/decoder to work - that connection in turn could be used to "expire" (i.e. erase) the dongle for whatever reason. So in the end those press kit disks may all end up as fancy (collectible) coasters ...

    However all of this is pure conjecture at this point but given corporations' concern about digital rights management, who knows? Why would the press kit include both a flash disk AND a DVD when in fact Wipeout HD could easily be stored on a single-layer DVD-5 (4.7 GB) OR even that 2 GB flash disk that I picked up on sale for $6.99 a few weeks ago? Then again that "oversize flash disk" could simply be not-so-portable, yet collectible swag.

    If you look closely, the DVD reads 'Review Code', and the USB card reads 'Assets' (that's usually info text about features, screenshots, logos etc.).

    Lots of sweet EPS files probably, as it was with the Pulse press kit

    Funny how the press, who probably couldn't give 2 sh*ts about Wipeout get this, and we, the 'FANS' can only look enviously at these pics.

    Sometimes life is just weird!

    Still, I'd be up for one if it ever appears on eBay. Have a feeling I should start saving now...

    That is much more than cool

    It would be nice to know what's the purpose of that card near the disc ....

    I hate to say this (and I love it at the same time ), buuuut...
    I just got the presskit!
    You can all relax, the game on the disk only works with the debug PS3, and I don't have it here right now - it's at the office. Means I will be providing the hungry with new, self-made screenshots in the next few days.
    The USB card, as I expected, contains Info text, the (old) trailer, some screens, all team logos as .eps, and, strangely enough, all the skin textures of the ships (will show, later). I will do my best to document the whole thing in photos for those drooling already, tomorrow.
