    Still my favourite. And it had customizable controls, 13 years before they couldn't be bothered to put them in Wipeout 2048.

    I agree that Fusion was a bit disappointing, hopefully they did much better later (one may say "less worse") but if another studio develops a sequel there is a small chance the first title will be disappointing for the same reasons.

    I yet have to comment the "there's not much more you can do with the franchise" part. History showed us resurrections which proved very successful, one recent that comes to my mind being Street Fighter IV - though it was a partial resurrection since Capcom (the former developer of Street Fighter) co-developed Street Fighter IV.

    If you'd like a polished version of the WipEout 2048 Vita game as is, I don't see any reason why they would update the game. I mean, as gamers we would love to, but publishers have no interest in doing so.

    Other options would be porting the game to another platform (most probably PS3) and hope the port would add features, or getting another title (WipEout 2049 ?) with some updates.

    First tDR closes and Colin Fawcett died and now this, I was very shocked when I heard the story I really love the wipEout series every though HD was my first game but Destruction Derby was the first game I played from Psygnosis in the late 90's and wipEout was inspirational to me with the graphic arts. So I do say R.I.P wipEout and Sudio Liverpool / Psygnosis.

    2048 was still fun, but I don't know why they removed so many features. No custom soundtracks? No custom races? Local OR online? No control of the stock soundtrack? And wasn't there supposed to be some AR thing? PulsE will always be my favorite (haven't played HD on the PS3 yet).

    I've read through every single comment from the previous 21 pages, and I have to say, it's lovely seeing everyone sympathize and express their grief at the news, and also their personal experiences of being inundated to WipEout Also, nice to see Australia getting some recognition, the prices we pay are just ridiculous.
    Late to the party, I know, but I found out on the same day everyone else did and have been dealing with the news away from WipEout Zone. All my friends that also love WipEout, there are about 5/6 of them, are also devastated by the news of closure from SL. We've been playing WipEout Pure at school everyday since the news, and I've been playing Zone every night
    Best wishes to the SL staff, I loved the facebook page they had with 2048, a real shame it's all gone now

    Look at it this way, with Studio Liverpool gone, WipEout is now public domain, unless Sony still holds the rights.

    Of course Sony still holds the rights.
    How do you think they are still selling games with the Wipeout name.
    Things don't just go public domain just because the studio that made the game doesn't exist anymore. That's not how things work.
