    Default Will you buy the coming DLC?

    Hello Wipers,

    If we consider the DLC will NOT include a racebox-like feature and we stick to the horrible and crapy online we have at the moment, will you buy the DLC?

    I know it's probably not an easy question considering I don't know myself my own answer to this question!
    I know my stupid fanboy attitude will push me to buy it... but I really would like to "punish" SL and/or Sony for not considering us at all...

    Poll is simple, yes or no!

    Before 2048's release i would have said 100% yes, but know i'll consider the price of the add-on to decide.

    It's true that a 4.99 euros DLC would look interesting, even if not including the racebox... still hard to find an answer then!

    Temet, like you said and I do agree with you.

    But, without "Racebox", that I will consider thinking about it, because, my problem is, I`m actually addicted to 2048 (hitting 82%) but, I`m just demented with combat!, just a waste of time! .

    Actually, I`m on 50/50 atm but no I`m not voting the now unfortunately. I`m working on it.

    Yes I definitely would. More content would be nice, I don't see the effectiveness in "punishing" Sony Liverpool. Look at the sales stats for Wipeout 2048: http://www.vgchartz.com/game/51793/wipeout-2048/ 101k copies, that's weak... That doesn't include digital sales granted of which I would wager are around 20-40k but still... You punishing them just means they won't release anything at all for Wipeout 2048 because it would be a failed commercial game to them. Buy the DLC and complain on their facebook page for "racebox" http://www.facebook.com/WipEout2048

    The question in my mind really is:

    Do you want more Wipeout?
    Or do you want none at all?

    Well, I don't know your wipeout history vdek, but I know mine.
    I've been playing Wipeout since the first episode... and when you ask me "Do you want more wipeout?", I will have a clear answer : if it's like 2048, NO, I don't want anymore.
    As Mad-Ice just wrote in the "racebox and custom controls" topic, there are tournaments organized each year, in real life. I've participated only the past 2 years and I had the opportunity to met great people that I would like to see more often. This year, if a new edition is organized, we will not be able to play 2048 !!!

    So no, I don't want anymore Wipeout like this episode, definitely.

    That wasn't the choice you were given though. The choice is more wipeout or none at all. If 2048 is a commercial failure that will happen.

    I've been playing wipeout since the original. Also i have played starcraft 2 competitively so i know how that goes...


    I want racebox as much as anyone else, its all i use in HD, and I've been badgering them since day one on their Facebook for it.

    I think everybody that has 2048 and is reading this thread will most likely get any DLC that is released, even if they say otherwise at the moment.
    Most long term WO players are completists.

    Regarding having Racebox reinstated via DLC, well I think the fact that the records are a mess, and have not been updating for HD for ages might have a bearing on if the spine of all wipeout games makes it back.
    SL might argue, well we can't fix the records [or are too busy fixing other problems first], and all Racebox is going to do is create more records, what's the point?
    The records need to be fixed before Racebox makes a return, if they don't get fixed I can't see them bringing it back.

    As for weak sales of 2048, well here in OZ I have yet to see a copy available to be bought at a store where VITA's are sold.

    Is there word on DLC other than the rest of the cross-play tracks which they are shadily charging non-HD/fury owners? Don't see anything coming up that they expect us (ps3 wipeout owners) to purchase? AR was an intended free update iirc as well.

    I'll get additional content if they release it but would be exceptionally let down if they did not implement all the crucial missing features and fixes. Hopefully they won't be as stingy with the pricing as they were (are) with wipeout pulse. That was not great value for money.

    @vdek : I complained about racebox since the beginning also. Not on facebook since I'm a social networks haters, but I did my part

    @blackwiggle : you're probably right mate, we will almost all buy the DLC even if it's a big desillusion.

    @mangaroo : Pulse DLC were not bad, but expensive regarding the content yeah.
