    You know, I was wondering why I wasn't seeing japanese pilots online... They didn't get the 1.40 update yet? That is strange indeed, it's been out for a while now, and this was not that big of a patch.

    I'm pretty sure I raced Japanese players this week, and the week before that.

    Be advised: make sure you buy Fury from the same Store that you bought Wipeout HD from. If it works the same way that Rock Band does, then they will need to come from the same region to interoperate.

    Guess we aren't going to get and explanation from SL on how FURY & HD meld,if they do.

    I was watching WHO was online that could of responded,but chose not to.

    Strange as it's Their baby.

    It seems like a Cavet emptor situation atm regarding FURY .

    Does anyone think that we will be able to achieve the original wipeout trophies while in the Fury content and vice versa? I ask cos I'm still a couple short of transcendence and the special Zone tracks might make things easier for me to get that elusive Zone Zeus.

    Maybe Fury gets extra trophies.

    I asked the same question at one of the Playstation forums.

    Their reply was that it should not effect getting the original trophies [Transcendence],it will still allow you to get it via the original premise.

    FURY will/should just add a percentage bar of trophies achieved like similar games that have had DLC trophies added.

    Not that I'm a trophy hunter,far too old and decrepit to worry about those.

    Plus one would need a constant source of new and extremely boring shooters to quell ones trophy cravings, if trophies are considered the mark of gaming competence.
    I'd rather be put in a home than having to suffer FPS's.

    You guys make it out like Fury is going to be a separate entity or something. Fury's just going to be an expansion; it'll update the user interface and add new content. "Fury" is just the expansion's name, kinda like the Beta, Gamma, Delta, Omega, etc packs for WOpure. Maybe future HD packs will be called like "Havoc" and "Chaos" or something.

    1. Fury could be just a "plug in" for HD. You launch HD to play it. Everyone has to download the Fury content even if they don`t buy it. This way they can still "see" and play the content when hosted by others online, but they can`t host it or do it single player. ...
    Considering the lifetime of the PS3, it is very likely that the current
    WipEout HD DLC, Fury, isn't the last one. So keeping DLCs consistent
    is rather important to not split up the community.

    I would do it as follows; For all those who bought WipEout HD there will
    be an upgrade option (for a given price tag) to upgrade to WipEout HD
    Fury! That is to say, there will be no plain WipEout HD any longer.
    Hence, WipEout HD Fury will replace WipEout HD and will be sold at a
    slightly higher price tag than the current version. The advantage doing
    this is of utmost importance. It doesn't split the community! And only a
    healthy community continues to buy further DLCs -- keeping the game
    alive! So if you are new to WipEout you will be up-to-date on buying
    WipEout HD Fury.

    Pricing scheme
    upgrade to WipEout HD Fury: 7.99 EUR
    WipEout HD Fury full game: 22.99 EUR
    (note: the pricing scheme is an example! do not copy)

    WipEout HD is priced at 17.99 EUR over here in germany. A simple calculation
    (based upon the given pricing scheme from above) yields that those who
    bought WipEout HD are paying an additional amount of about 5 EUR compared
    to those who will buy WipEout HD Fury straight away. Fair? Well, consider that
    WipEout HD gets dated to some degree. And to win new fans for the franchise
    you have to offer them a good deal. So if you look at it, it is a win-win
    situation for everyone.

    Judging from what I've seen so far, SL is very efficient on storage space if
    you compare them to other companies. Patches are also very small. Look!
    People do download demos of about 1.5 - 2GB.

    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.

    Darkdrium, thanks! I had been afraid that (1) would turn out like that. Can you use point cards, then? Here in Japan they sell those in 7-11 stores and you can send them all over the world for people to use at the Japanese PSN Store.

    As for (2), I was just wondering if you could still make use of the Fury tracks and other material if there were region problems and you (for some reason) couldn't "meld" Fury to your WOHD stuff.

    I'll just play it safe and buy both from the same Store.
