    Just found out about this. I first played Wipeout 3 on PS1 and (apart from the fact that i wasn't very good at it) liked it ever since. I hope this isn't the end for the Wipout series.

    Gutted. Like xplud said above, Wipeout was one of the most influential aspects of my life. Turned me on to so much good music. I'm looking forward to a career in sound design, because of the music I listen to, because Wipeout introduced me to it. Such fantastic games to play. Fun and equally frustrating, but something I always have and always will come back to. I have a PSP for one reason, and that's for Pure and Pulse.

    This is not how it's supposed to be.

    I really don't think (hope) it will be gone forever but just a while before we will see it again, but probably never the same again.

    Was good while it lasted...

    The video game markets have changed. Free to play games with with buy in game goods. Are putting a real hurt on the gaming industry.
    Wipeout may return in the new format, or it may return when 4K TV emerges with the PS4. Studio Liverpool has 12 to 18 months invested in a new Wipeout. Sony may release it for use on multiple platform or just shelve it.
    Wipeout set the standard for exciting futuristic racing game play. It has achieved a 28 year run making it a legend.
    I wouldn't count on Wipeout disappearing altogether.

    I had a wonderful time racing with all the online competitors. I wasn't the fastest or the best. I raced to be part of a community that never could exist anywhere but in the imaginations of a select few. Thanks to all for allowing me to escape my mortal bounds.
    Death is not the end, a new adventure begins.

    seems pretty abrupt, a sad undignified end to a company and its people that gave so much to help make the playstation what it is

    hopefully all those affected can be relocated elsewhere, redundancy sucks big time.

    long live the zone!

    Wipeout was one of those games that kept playstation fans loyal to them and now this?
    PS4 will be the final nail in the coffin for sony... even if another company picks Wipeout up i doubt it will ever be the same again.
    Boycott PS4, they may save a few quid by shutting down studio liverpool but hopefully sony will lose a huge number of loyal day 1 purchasers of there consoles.
    Goodbye studio liverpool lets bring sony to its knees.

    I started this little run in my pre-teens, walking by the electronics stores on my way home from school, and catching sight of this weird flying-ship racing game on a playable display that nearly gave me vertigo playing it. Every day, I'd stop in to take a run at this interesting game, playing until someone kicked me out.

    That was seventeen years ago. Every game that's come out, I've gotten my grubby little mitts on, and driven myself to distraction with it. Wipeout had that certain something, that ability to hold your attention and make you push yourself to beat that time or master the airbrake timing on that curve, or hit that race line just perfectly. Even today, playing 2097 or WO3, I still have people stare at the game, as if hypnotized, those that have never seen it before, anyway.

    Vaya con Dios, Studio Liverpool. You've made great works which have imprinted on us in so many ways. Well done.

    I was going to mention that as well. I think it's only a matter of time now before WipEout is shut off permanently.

    This sort of thing disgusts me. How can Sony turn their back on a franchise that defined the PlayStation whilst other, more mediocre companies remain open? Oh well, my opinion isn't going to change anything, so thank you for everything SL. It's been a blast and we'll never forget you.
