    Default Spectator Mode?

    Maybe I'm just thick... but I haven't seen any sort of spectator options in the game yet, but just a few days ago, I was in a match with a few people and someone seemed to be having internet problems. The race was quite laggy and getting back to the lobby took a long while.

    Then I noticed something really quick that I've never seen before, but just for a second. Not enough for it to register to my brain. I thought nothing of it and waited a while for the next tournament to continue. Once again, connection issues but when I returned to the lobby, I saw a Spectate option sitting down at the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. I don't remember seeing it before... and I haven't seen it since. It didn't appear to actually work either.

    I was able to take this picture of it though.

    Perhaps a feature we'll be seeing in a future update unless I'm just dumb and haven't noticed it all this time. Clickthrough for a larger size.

    Any ideas?

    I seem to remember seeing some specifications for the game a while before it was released it said things about online eliminator and some sort of team racing mode, guess some stuff just doesn't make the final cut for whatever reasons.

    Yeah, I've seen it too. I wish there was a spectator mode, then we could join rooms already in progress to wait and watch for the race to end before we can hit the track. So many times I've hit to join a group, and then I get a error saying the race has already started. This would still let me join and be in spectator mode as a option until they are finished.

    I've seen it a bunch of times, always after a game has just finished. I've never pressed square, though, out of fear that it would crash the room.

    I have also personally witnessed the spectator option appear, what a cock tease.

    that would be awsome for fight photos, then again since you can't pause the race that might have some sync issues,,

    well, sony is apparently implementing a "print screen" feature in the next PS3 firmware update. it obviously wouldn't have the scale of creative freedom that the photo mode does, but i'm sure you'd be able to take screen captures of other people racing with it.

    Only if SL implements it in Wipeout, which they probably won't since they have photo mode, so...
