    The Noobs are Always moody ones...

    For My Patch I would love to see that color trail thing as well.

    I'd leave a wake or Purple Destruction!

    You can resize your HUD - if you play the HD game in campaign - you can unlock alternate HUDs after getting a certain amount of points with any given team. (so pick your favorite ship and use it to no end) Zone mode and Detonator are a VERY fast way to level up ship / team points.

    The alternative huds are from Wipeout XL / 2097 (which is what I use to no end), and Wipeout 3.

    The XL/2097 HUD is very minimalist - yet still easily read - which is why I favor it.

    To answer Jasmin - I love using the "old beat down" skins - because it's more salt into the wound when I win against Fury ships with my POS Auricom.

    I love my Classic AG Systems.

    I still like the New Fiesar and Triakis (Triakis REALLY needed that)

    Yeah, customizable ion trails like in Quake where you can customize your railgun!
    That would be sweet

    Also, the ability to delete your own times from your save file and sync with the server.

    Lastly, replay mode with the same options as the replay mode in GRID/Dirt (Play, Pause, rewind, slow motion; download the demos on PS3 to check it out) and the ability to take photos while in this replay.

    I think that may be a nice, subtle way to bring some personality to the ships while racing online


    I definitely like this idea, especially considering we can no longer design our own skins and transplant them to our ship.

    I added these to the main post;

    Lobby Chat - This has been suggested a couple of times before but I guess as soon as Chat Room was added to PS3 people didn't need In-Game Chat any longer. Still, it definately does have some advantages; you won't have to Open your XMB, create a Chat Room, then add players to your friends list so you can invite them to join the room. Second, Lobby Chat allows you to communicate faster than having to open your XMB.

    Improved Voice Chat - There is no doubt that Voice Chat is in a terrible state. The problem could solely be related to poor support from Sony's side, but I know some games have implemented their own solutions to allow Voice Chatting. Teamspeak 3 sounds like a good alternative; http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=teamspeak3sdk
    I have no idea how the technical aspect of adding such a feature to a PS3 title works, and if it is even possible. But if it was, the benefits would definately be great; no more text chatting

    I would put the blame on XMB and not on SL for poor chatting experience.

    I see a major drawback in online chat through the game itself. However lame XBM might be (I mean lame like slow and bumpy - it's otherwise functional) it's distinct from the interaction between your console and the game's servers, meaning that when the game freezes you don't loose contact with your friends.

    That's why it's great not to have to be in an in-game lobby so as to chat with other players.

    I think voice chat is annoying, when you are a stranger among friends, or when some rude boy comes and starts calling you names...

    I think it would be useless to implement a chat, and inconsistent comming from a first-party developper. They wouldn't diss the work of those working on ready made solutions to ease their workload and give players a consitent experience online.

    Please make it so that PS3slim is force-fed some extra RAM, if just for XMB's sake! XMB is so slow!

    At first I would have entirely agreed with you about this, and I complained about it myself a bit. But I was thinking about it and I came up with one reason why the new, better ships are there. They're part of a while package. If they just introduced new skins then I wouldn't bother about even trying the new ships, because I could see what they looked liked and that would be it. Now we have a whole new set of ships to get used to and learn about, and maybe people's favourite team will change. The main reason I think they shouldn't have had new stats in the first place is based on what are now slightly confused record tables. I care about those, but the majority of people who buy the game won't. They have marked Fury ships in the tables, so that's something good at least.

    As for the second part, Oldteki-85 pwns you . Just kidding, but I was racing in it last night against a room full of Fury ships, and to be honest, it didn't make a huge amount of difference in online races. I would even go so far as to say I was getting better results than I usually do online. Add to that how oogly boogly the new ships' behinds are, and there is enough reason to stick with your old favourite

    I see your point, SaturnReturn, but they also could have changed stats by changing points rather than adding them.
    Or they could have even introduced new (old) teams to the list with alternative stats (though that would have meant new logos, stories etc, thus more work).

    In the end, was there a reason to make those ships more powerful then the old ones?

    I'm not sure how SL would incorporate this, but before Fury came out, I could see demo races of random ships, fury and HD. But whenever I start a race. It's either all AI all classic like my ship, or all Fury, or all zone battle ships. I'm not suggesting Zone battle ships be randomly put into races. But I would love to see HD ships and Fury ships randomly selected for the AI. The exhaust tails are all so indifferent. We need some variety in there.
