    Default Has anyone seen....

    For all of you who have watched the movie hackers, has anyone seen
    Wipeout in an Aracade not to mention with Dual Anolog or that version of the game? :

    I think there was some talk a while back about someone spotting a Wipeout 2097 (Europe version) arcade cabinet somewhere, but I don't think anyone in the US has ever seen one.

    And I think the Wipeout they had in Hackers was a beta version, so I doubt you'll ever see it.

    Talking of movies... If you want to see real PSX WipEout in a movie you can watch 'Virtual Sexuality'. Not that the film is worth much (a bit stupid teens story) but as a curiosity, 10 or 15 minutes before the end, you'll be able to see the 'total loser' character playing (very badly) wipEout2097; banging in the rossonero tunnel at Gare d'Europa.

    Disclaimer: xEik won't return any money to those who rented the films because of the things stated above and think it was not worth paying for it. :

    I've played an arcade sit down version of wipeout xl/2097 that moved around (which was HORRID), only problem the creaters had was making no control for air brakes So basically it was a cheap ripoff to grab people's attention, but to summerize this, it was bad.

    i think the wipeout shown in hackers is just a pre-rendered movie.

    It was a rendered movie, I know that because myself, Neil Thompson and Jim Bowers did it.

    The sad thing is I havent got of my ar$e to actually go out and rent Hackers so I still havent seem it in the film
