    Graphics don't need bandwith in online play. Positions and actions do, but not the eye candy

    Then why the dumb down IMHO of the graphics in fury?

    They certainly have a LOT more contrast,but the fine detail has gone compared to HD.

    It's like it was mastered for a Blueray release that didn't happen.
    [I could rant on about video mastering for Blueray discs but I won't bore you all with tech speak] suffice to say,content for Blueray is mastered at a higher contrast level than other video formats for consumer use.

    The argument being that LCD displays have a lower contrast range than CRT or 6th generation Plazmas,if you master the Blueray disc at a higher contrast it will look a lot better on a HD LCD display than any other.

    They call it selective display processing.

    Who owns the right to Blueray?
    Who sells the most LCD displays?

    A few more questions:

    * Can you buy HD in one region and Fury in another? I'll probably buy my PS3 in Japan, and buy HD in Japan too since that's where my credit card is. I'll want to buy Fury as soon as it comes out, which means getting the UK version, right? Is region segregation going to be a problem?

    * Can you buy Fury without having acquired HD?

    Crikey!!!
    Talk about lack of info and the questions that can pop up.

    As far as I know Japan hasn't even got the 1.30- 1.40 updates yet.

    A few of our Japanese members have been asking for it, or at least when it would become available to them.
    I don't know what their [Japan} status is ATM.

    How LOW down the priority scale has Wipeout become?

    I'm not blaming Studio Liverpool [ some of it does though]

    This crap for the vast majority rests SOLELY on SCEE Division.

    NO Promotion what so ever.
    NO mention of Wipeout at all,let alone FURY in SONY's E3 171 minute speech
    NO update information until after the update and what it contains.
    NO information regarding fixes to online issues and if they will ever occur.
    NO information regarding resetting "Obviously Wrong" online records [even though notified]
    NO "official" response to original PSID no longer being recognized by the wipeout online server,[If it wasn't for Elhabib,NOTHING would be known]even now the situation is the same,GOD knows the amount of people that we don't know about that are suffering this problem,it remains still after 5 months,NOTHING has been done to resolve it by SCEE [class action brewing]let alone recognize the problem.

    It seems the LEGAL dept actually runs SCEE.
    Hence nothing gets sorted in fear of a court case.
    Where if they just FIXED things,NO legal people would get involved,saving millions and a lot of frustration by all.
    And might be a major part of why SONY lost 32bil US$ last year

    I made a thread about that, you know
    Yeah, it's incredibly frustrating, but those questions asked by me, Xavier (well not really) I can answer:

    1. As far as I know: you can buy DLC worldwide, provided you have a credit card working for that region. If you can't get your credit card accepted to pay at the UK store, you won't be able to buy the DLC. But if you buy it, it will work.

    2. Yes, you can buy DLC content without having the game it's made for. Don't know why though, you will be unable to play it, as it requires the full game.

    I don't think this applies to WOHD, but I have the pal version of Dead Space, and I bought one DLC from the US pss, and it didn't work. I hope this is the same for WO, but I got mine off the US pss so I'll be able to get this pack

    Hmm, maybe it's possible they would restrict to regions if it launches at different periods. Yeah I think I heard of that now that I think about it.

    Thats the only reason I go through the trouble of buying only games from the US. However, maybe since every wipeout pilot can race with the rest of the world, coupled with it being a PSN title, this problem won't apply. I sure hope so.

    Now this game NEEDS to be sold on disk, it is a full blown WipEout. And I don't get why sony didn't speak of this at the conference. There is no reason now to treat this game as a PSN title (ie mention it once or twice until it gets released, and then nothing).

    I could understand that reasoning if the game had yet to be released.

    But that Isn't the case.

    Japan should have got the 1.30-1.40 update the same as all others since they are playing online with us.
    And those updates [except for the select turbo reset] only effect online.
