Forgive me, I know I'm coming very late to the game, but I wanted advice on purchasing Wipeout HD/Fury. Please understand, I donít play very many games, but always loved playing the Wipeout series, I just wasnít going to purchase a game console for only one game. Iíve always been able to get my game consoles for free (friends upgrading and giving me their old one, etc). But since PS3 has lasted for <exaggeration> 400 years </exaggeration>, there hasnít been a reason for anyone to upgrade. Well, Iím finally getting a PS3. Next step, purchasing Wipeout HD/Fury, and Iím sorry, but Iím a bit confused. Here is what I do know, Wipeout HD is only available for download at the ĎPS3 app storeí. Wipeout Fury can be purchased on Blu-ray and it includes Wipeout HD. Since Wipeout HD/Fury is old, in gaming terms, no one carries the Blu-ray version anymore. The only place Iíve see it is one seller on Amazon from Greece selling it for $75. Is that right and why canít I find it elsewhere? I also see, coming to this site now, that Wipeout HD/Fury will be a subset of Wipeout 2048 for the PS3.

Questions: If I purchase Fury, via download, does it come with HD, or do I first have to purchase HD, then Fury. Does anyone know the cost of each?
Should I wait, instead, for Wipeout 2048, so I can play both 2048 and HD/Fury on my PS3? Will it be the same gaming experience via 2048 as if I was playing the original HD/Fury?

Thank you.
