    Now hang on for a healthy dose of unhealthy optimism...the line was almost certainly changed after the news outlets first picked up on the story. After all, the keywords "Studio Liverpool", "racing game" and "futuristic" would almost guarantee that they are working on a new Wipeout game - in the same way that "Namco" and "space shooter" would indicate that they're making a new Galaga.

    Stuff like that gets edited or taken down frequently especially if it reveals a project that the company isn't quite ready to take public yet.

    If it is a new Wipeout game, great (I've always got ideas ). If not, hey, I've got eight other Wipeout games I could keep playing instead.

    My guess is that is for a new wipeout for PSP2.
    Sony will probably announce PSP2 on E3 '11 since PSP is almost dead.
    PSP GO was never supported and since Nintendo announced 3DS, Sony won't be late to announce a PSP2, probably with touch screen, 3D support and graphics on almost the same level as PS3.
    In short something like PSP compared to PS2 back in 2005...
    Just theories here by me though.
    Anyway, anything wipeout related is more than welcomed by everyone here i suppose...

    Sony please get back to the good old-days and support your fan base, don't ignore them, give them what they want!

    They are already not that much more expensive than solely 2D TV's which are slowly being faded out of production.
    You choose if you want to switch in the 3D effect remember, it's not forced upon you.
    You can also choose to buy the glasses/receiver or not, you can do that later, the price of the SONY add-on receiver and 2 pairs of glasses is around the price of 7 Blueray Disc's.
    Not what I would call expensive.
    I dont know what sales are like in Oz but in Europe sales of 3d TVs are very sluggish- most people have already bought high end sets (I myself have a 1 yr old 50 in plasma). People will not dump such hardware in a hurry, may be in 5-10 years or so, which makes 3D a big gamble and a toy for the vast minority. This opinion is based on a friend that works in a high end TV shop-in the UK 3D is very much a fad, the real sellers are Intenet ready (i.e. streaming) TVs. And another problem is no-one has money to buy all this gear in a recession, 1000 pounds is a lot (not accounting for the decoder, glasses etc that push the price up).

    3D may be inevitable, but the market is fragmented- no 3d tv glasses are compatible with another, 3D 'ready' v built in is another issue that confuses people plus there are many 'standards' of 3D that fry consumers brains. 3D may become sidelined like the Minidisc or Laserdisc- its only now HD has really taken hold and thats been years in the making.

    In games, although it is a player choice, 3D is a real system hogger that really diverts development time and energy- I would much prefer 30+ ships at 2D 1080p than 10 in 3D. I just hope the 3D TV user has to compromise and not the 2D player.

    Anyway- Wipeout! I do hope the new WO is either a logical extension of WO3 (i.e. high end design/ typography) or WO Fusion (something new to the mix). (And not on the PSP2- I dislike small screens with fast recing games).

    Yeah guys im with all the ones saying its for the psp2.
    That sounds about right.

    A Ps4 is still 4+ years away.
    and there is no reason to make another ps3 game.

    I don't think that a new game being started on this year would be too early for a PS4 release, as the next wave of consoles are likely to come out in 2012. That's only 2 years, tops, of dev time if it were released on the PS4's launch.

    @ Rotational Aspect: I think BW's point is that at least to manufacturers, "3D TV" is just jargon for "the new standard". Even if sales are sluggish, soon enough people won't even be able to purchase a TV incapable of 3D. Not just Aus, or Europe - anywhere. Except maybe North Korea.
    Also, the actual expense of a 3D TV is no greater than any other new TV apart from the required accessories.

    Anyway, I won't go into detail on the things I think you have mistaken regarding 3D, since in any case this 3D talk is beside the point of a new WO game. As far as I'm concerned, 3D is insignificant, mainstream, doesn't cost much if anything to developers, etc. When there is a new WO game on a home console, 3D will be there.

    There wasn't really a reason to make a second PSP Wipeout (Pulse), aside from adding true online multiplayer, and it happened anyway.

    I'll take either a new PS3 or a PSP2 title. Doesn't matter to me. The important thing about this is that SL is far from dead and that they are working on something.

    3D TV sales in Aus have been pretty healthy.
    I put that down to 3 things.
    Harvey Norman is the biggest store for TV's Aus wide, he got the TV stations to do the worlds first live free to air 3D broadcasts of the "State of Origin" Rugby League series of games, his store & Samsung also sponsored this, so there was blanket advertising.
    Then we had the world cup shortly after, again we had SBSTV show all the games that were shot in 3D go free to air on their own 3D channel, these were run on a permanent loop until the next game went live, then that replaced the last.

    And thirdly, being very close to Asia we have over the years got a large Asian population, they like to have the newest technology [especially mobile phones], it's just what they tend to spend their money on.
    I suppose you could say it replaces drinking which they don't seem to do that much, but is what the Anglo based community tend to spend there money on.

    Guys Sony and MS have already stated that the usual 5 year console cycle is not going to be 5 years this time around. The PS3 still has HEAPS of life in it.
    Dont expect a PS4 until 2013-14.

    A psp2 game is highly likely.

    It's been a while since I posted anything on here... Or played a lot of Wipeout for that matter (need a comfortable chair), I've been busy traveling around and working... Starting some classes up eventually and still need to keep in good physical condition, but even though I haven't been very available to Wipeout lately I hope that this continues... Wipeout is and will probably be for a long long time my number 1 racer... Wipeout HD is a masterpiece! (As well as all it's other prequals of course)...
