    Hahahaha so true. We can never say never. Anything can happen in this Industry. but there is always a chance that SL could break away and take their IP's with them (Sony willing). But thats unlikely

    That only happened because SEGA went out of the console business, and had to start making games for other people's consoles in order to survive. This is highly unlikely to happen to Sony.

    Axel, how is SL going to break away when Sony owns them 100 percent? They're not a contract house. And Sony owns the IP, too.

    [tries to envision SL buying itself back] hmm... I can't see it.

    Remember Curly Monsters Ltd.? Just because it can't be called Wipeout doesn't mean it can't embody its spirit, all legalities aside. It's a question of timing, the will to navigate the legal minefield and most importantly having a large enough (genre) audience (which seems to be pre-dominantly in the European region).

    HydrogLox, of course I remember Curly Monsters, but that was a new company, not one owned by Sony. Nick Burcombe, co-creator of the original WipEout plus a few other members who had worked at SL back in the old days, started an entirely new company. The game they created was not WipEout nor could it be called WipEout and that is the only reason why it was on another console. SL and Wipeout are firmly in the 'hands' of Sony.

    Well, at least Nick is working for SL again. How locked-in he is would be another matter.

    Curly was founded by Andy Satterthwaite, Nick B, Lee Carus, Neil Thompson, Martin Linklater and Chris Roberts (a programming legend by all accounts ).

    The last 5 are all back at Liverpool and you'll find them all (except Andy who's in NZ at Sidhe) in the credits for HD.

    edit: Except for Nick, who you won't find actually...
