    ^Great find!, downloaded everything there was to download from there
    Just don't have the environment art since they are stored in .swf, which for some reason, safari does not like downloading…

    How did you back up a flash based site though sausehuhn?
    And guess we'll all have to learn japanese now

    As there is no way to know which data a swf loads (at least not that I know of), I used some kind of workaround: First, I cleared my browser’s cache and clicked every link inside the website afterwards. In my browser’s cache overview, I was able to see where the original content comes from. I rebuilt the website’s folder structure and downloaded every single file and saved it to the correspondent folder. This way the whole website works offline and loads it content perfectly. Except for the videos, which I was able to save, but not to load into the site’s swf.

    And don’t be fooled: There are plenty of files to save for the website to work

    Damn...I could never be able to do all that. I'm not much of an expert when it comes to things like this. I've tried a lot of times but none seem to work as well as everything loading how they normally would you like described.

    lol Sause, that's pretty much the same thing i did, i just didn't rebuild the website , got all the content though and can open the SWFs individually ^^
    Big props to you for recreating the whole folder structure lol
    A couple of the environment things gave me nullpointer errors upon trying to download though =/, but if you got it all, that's fine great

    I see nobody has questioned WHY Sony have removed both sites.

    I'll give you a hint.

    I'm also curious. I don't see how a game's website should in any way be removed/altered to redirect because of their cloud service. They don't seem too related. >__>

    Sony's up to somethin'.

    I have a hunch that blackwiggle knows what he's talking about... I'm just not sure what that is yet!

    Don't be surprised if the HD/FURY and PULSE servers were to be closed down and replaced with a PS4 Gaikai streaming model of the same games.
    Sony USES Wipeout [Much as it pisses everybody off at this forum] to promote new technology.

    As it owns the Wipeout Franchise, and it would be a very cheap entry into the game streaming "Experiment" that the PS4's Gaikai would be, the recent closing of both Wipeout websites, can only allude to assume that both games will no longer being supported by Sony in there previous "guises", and will in future be "Only?" available via streaming.
    The reason for removal of said sites would be to stop any possible confusion with any Google searches when any new "Gaikai Streaming" version was to be launched.
    I'm not 100% sure.
    It's a very cheap marketing ploy for Sony's Gaikai streaming if it gives free games away with sign up.
    Wipeout has been used previously , so it's safe to assume it will happen with this launch.
